The Big 100!

January 17, 2010 at 11:30 AM 5 comments

GOOD morning friends! This is a special post for me this morning because it is my 100th post! I have enjoyed writing each one of them and I look forward to writing many, many more. Thank you for your kind comments and support. I have fallen in love with the healthy living blog community, as it continues to make me smile each and every day. Thanks, ya’ll!


This morning I woke up for another hour-long run with my friend Amy. The rest of our weekend running crew bailed again, so it was just us out there fighting the wind ‘n’ rain. It was tough! My legs were already stiff from yesterday’s 7 miles, but the post-run feeling is always worth it.

I fixed up the last of the lemon blueberry pancake batter for a guaranteed delicious Sunday breakfast. They were just as tasty as they were yesterday – nom nom nom!


I mentioned yesterday that I was planning to do some baking. That’s exactly what I did. I made 3 dozen Chocolate Chunk Cookies. They’re loaded with bittersweet chocolate chunks, dried apricots, tart cherries, and crunchy pecans. Love the chewy-ness of the fruits and slightly sweet chunks of dark chocolate.

My shiny, new Airbake baking sheet worked like a charm. Thanks, Santa!

I wrapped up some of the cookies to give away [Goal #10: “Bake more often and for others”.] and put the rest in the cookie jar. I wasn’t about to dispose of them all ; )

I’m getting a massage this afternoon – don’t hate – and then I am thinking about putting a few ripe bananas to use (a.k.a. more baking).

Hope you’re having a lovely Sunday,

~ Hillary

    Congrats on 100 posts! Great pancakes! I’m sure the hint of lemon in the batter was delicious!

    I really like your resolution. I love baking, but it’s finding or creating the time to do it that’s the trick.
