    When I was in graduate school I became friends with a fellow RD intern whose parents lived in Cabo San Lucas. She invited me and another one of our classmates to go hang out there one summer. I fell in love. Not only is it gorgeous, but the local fruit stands, taco shops and markets add such character to the Mexican town.   We stayed for a full month (yes, lucky us!) because her family was kind enough to make room for us, and I have such great memories of going to the market to pick out our produce. Tomatoes, cilantro, onion, lime and peppers were the usual suspects. Coming … [Read more...]

October 29th is National Oatmeal day and what better way to celebrate than with a new oatmeal recipe! We are huge oatmeal fans in this house; every variety makes an appearance in our pantry from quick cooking to rolled oats to steel cut. I have always enjoyed oatmeal but it wasn't until I met my husband 10 years ago that I started including it in my diet on a regular basis. He adores oatmeal and eats in almost everyday.
