Celery stuffed with cream cheese is not a common Christmas tradition but it's festive, crunchy & delicious, and ready to be your holiday bff.

With paprika!

Pike place

I plowed through a Bliss workout this morning. Well okay, a “kwik and lite” version of Bliss:  4 sets of 10 push ups (modified) followed by 40 sit ups. I intend to integrate sets of sit ups and pikes until I can do 40 full-on pikes. I’d like to be strong enough to complete 40 full push ups, too. Practically an Olympic goal for me right now. Note to self: that would be a good thing to ask Santa for!

Having time in the morning before work feels luxurious; a splendid time to watch snow falling on city streets while energizing with a cup o’ joe.

Melty, mushy, crunchy, cold

Have you ever considered the ideal follow-up to a steaming bowl of savoury pho? Look no further.
