Vocal Pause

By: Christine Smith | 0 Comments | | Category: Health, Random Thoughts, Uncategorized

So I’m not sure if I mentioned, but my doc got sick of seeing me (that’s my guess, not what she said), so she put me on a steroidal inhaler in attempts of getting rid of this stupid cough once and for all. I told her I was trying to... more

2 Soups at a Time = ?

By: Christine Smith | 0 Comments | | Category: Food, Uncategorized

My nose is completely confused after cooking fish soup and pho broth at the same time. Can’t say I like the smells together, but it had to be done. Ever try Julia Childs’ fish soup? YUM. That said, it’s strangely subtle layering of flavor seems almost too subtle after weeks... more

By: Christine Smith | 0 Comments | | Category: Food, Health, Reviews of Recipes | Tags : , , , , , , , , , ,

For some people, chicken noodle soup is their go-to when they’re sick. I admit to loving it too, but only home made, and not as much as two other favorites: 1. Tom Kaa Kai (chicken in coconut milk soup, which I learned how to make while I was in Thailand... more

Okay, so if you haven’t seen the movie yet, I’m just going to tell you now that I’m going to be talking about the ending, so spoiler alert! We watched “Everest” last night, and it has had me bummed out all night. I went to bed sad, and I woke up... more

Back Injuries Suck

By: Christine Smith | 0 Comments | | Category: Uncategorized

So I’m what…about 10 days into this back injury, and it’s still sucking the life out of me. Many of you remember the last back fiasco, where I spent the better part of 2 years of my life practically a cripple from pain (and back then, for whatever reason, I... more

As you know, I’m always messing around in the kitchen, and looking for delicious and healthy recipes. We rarely eat out (I mean it – not even coffee outside most of the time, dinner out usually maybe once every two weeks to a month…we just aren’t interested in eating expensive and... more

I admit, I haven’t been here on the blog for a bit. I’ve been bogged down lately with work, illness, the holidays…I don’t know, the usual. I also wonder if there’s anyone out there, reading this thing, or if I’m just talking to myself. LOL. So I took a little... more

Random Thoughts…12-23-15

By: Christine Smith | 0 Comments | | Category: Random Thoughts, Uncategorized

1. It took me 15 minutes to drive into work today. 8 miles, what normally takes me between 40-90 minutes on a normal day. I wish every commute was this fast. 2. There are about 25 people in the building today, a place where normally 23,000 people work. It’s quiet…too... more

Combative, or…Courageous? Hmm…

By: Christine Smith | 1 Comment | | Category: Uncategorized

I don’t normally talk about this kind of stuff here, but this has been weighing heavily on my mind lately, and today, I was directly asked about it and I’ve been thinking about it ever since. It’s now 3am, I’m not sleeping, so clearly I need to get this out.... more

A Note on Cat Health/Cat Food

By: Christine Smith | 2 Comments | | Category: Pets, Random Thoughts, Uncategorized

You’re probably (still) thinking I’m nuts for delving into the world of making cat food. At first, so was I. I mean, there are tons of products out there, and I’ve had many, many cats over my lifetime, and they’ve all lived happy, healthy, long lives, right? Except that maybe... more
