2014 Weekly Challenge #29: A Salad A Day

Summer is the perfect time for salads. The veggies and fruit are so tasty and fresh, and it is usually just too darn hot to heat up the kitchen.

One of our very own Mamas, Kim Box, has written a cook book all about the beauty of the salad. Here's a little bit about her:

Placer County woman assaulted in her home


Placer County sheriff's detectives are looking for a man who attacked a woman at her north Auburn home early Tuesday morning.

According to detectives, at 1:18 a.m., the woman was smoking outside her home in the 11000 block of Quartz Drive when she was approached by man in his late 20s or early 30s. The man threatened her with a weapon and then forced the woman into her apartment, where he threw her around her.

"He forced her back into her apartment threw her down a couple of times, once in the house and once on the bed," Placer County Sheriff's Office spokesperson Dena Erwin said.

The man then went through her home and took some items before running away from the area.

Investigators said solving this case will be tough because of a vague suspect description and lack of witnesses.

Breakfast of Champions

Breakfast of Champions

I do love breakfast. I have friends who skip breakfast, some whose breakfast consists of a triple Venti nonfat latte, and others who wouldn’t mind a carton of eggs and a side of beef for breakfast.

I like to start my day with a solid meal, plus lots of hot, strong coffee. My penchant for sweets sometimes leads me down the road of French toast or pancakes – ah, I do love pancakes. But, I’ve learned that if my breakfast isn’t packed with protein, then my day just goes downhill.

So when my friend and trainer, Mindy McFall, owner of Folsom Lake Fitness, shared her recipe for protein pancakes with me, I just couldn’t keep all of this goodness to myself! If you’re a breakfast person, but you want something that stays with you and is healthy, you just may have found your new favorite breakfast.

Grilled chicken never needs to be boring again. Cook the chicken until it is tender and still moist, then top it with a sweet corn and tomato salsa. That is, if you're able to resist eating all of the salsa first... Read More
