After seeing Rick Bayless at the Good Food Festival last month, I grabbed one of his Frontera Seasoning Sauces at the grocery store last week to give it a try! I went with the Red Chile Barbacoa Slow Cook Sauce, a roasted tomato and ancho chile sauce...

Yesterday, I completed my first 2 mile easy run for training. It was nice outside so I decided to run through the city. It ended up taking me 24 minutes, due to a lot of people-traffic and having to stop and jog in place at every intersection waiting for the “walk” sign to light up. While running through the city is fun to people watch and see all the shoppers out and about, the...

Unfortunately it wasn’t my favorite combination and turned out a little bland, but it wasn’t a total loss and went well...
