I am a 34 year old living outside of Boston with my wonderful husband, energetic daughter, sweet son, and playful dog. I have degrees in both psychology and guidance counseling, and have worked in a variety of school settings. I strive to find a balance between the two basic food philosophies of “eat to live” and “live to eat“. I believe that food should be (and is!) one of the great pleasures of leading a healthy lifestyle.

1. I’m getting a big kick out of Lisa Kudrow’s new series Web Therapy which airs on Showtime Mondays at 11 PM (which of course means I watch it On Demand… 11:00 is past my bedtime).

Although my career path took a culinary turn along the way, I actually went to school (both undergrad at Lafayette College and grad at Boston College) for counseling psychology; this might explain my fascination with psychology-themed shows (I LOVED Gabriel Byrne’s In Treatment… hope it’s coming back for another season!).

Web Therapy has a decidedly different vibe than In Treatment, but I’m enjoying it nonetheless.

2. I had a couple of kitchen bloopers over the weekend; both were a mess to clean up, but at least one of ’em tasted divine!

I overfilled my ice cream maker juuuust a tad. Fortunately this vegan coconut milk-based cookies & cream ice cream tasted fabulous… recipe to come later this week.

Trust me, you want to come back for this recipe!

The following morning I attempted to make blueberry buttermilk waffles (adapted from Alton Brown), but for some reason three out of the four waffles stuck to the iron.

I halved the recipe, subbed in all whole wheat pastry flour, and added in fresh blueberries… not sure exactly where things went wrong, but even the cooked pieces I managed to salvage didn’t taste perfect.

Back to the drawing board on that one, I’m afraid.

3. Today’s Back Burner post features a recipe that can’t be messed up! Super simple – but scrumptious – Mango, Avocado, & Toasted Coconut Salad with Lime Vinaigrette.

I originally made this salad back in early spring of 2011, and am bringing it back to share again because it’s the perfect hot-weather lunch.
