Yeast Confections: Sourdough Starter

In our quest to eat more healthily, I've decided to try making—and sustaining—sourdough starter. Again. This time, hopefully successfully. We've found that Jon's stomach seems to be able to handle some homemade glutenous goodies, such as his tomato-basil bread. So we thought sourdough might also work because it's fermented, and that's supposed to be good [...]

The Smile-and-Nod in Buffalo

Buffalo is a very friendly city. I am confident making this deduction after having walked and/or run through a number of cities. People will start chatting with you while you're walking; they'll share stories and joke with you. Heck, even outside the city, Buffalove runs deep. One summer on Cape Cod, we were driving in [...]

A little weekend adventure

Happy Monday Fat Nerds! Last week wrapped up nicely with a great post from Dave, encouraging us all to get out there and start walking a little bit more. I took that advice and ran (or walked…) with it this weekend. Fall is my favorite season because it is not too hot and the sun [...]

It's power lies in the fact that the user can specify what he or she listens to, as opposed to Pandora Radio, which allows the user to listen [...]

Music Monday: Yellowcard

Music has the ability to move you to a different place. It can get to your core, stir your emotions, and get you thinking. Picking songs to exercise to can make or break a workout. I am going to share with you two of my favorite songs to run to, both by Yellowcard. Both of [...]

Music Monday #1: Influencing Activities

Music is a huge part of my life. There is rarely a moment throughout the day that I do not have music playing in the background.  Even at my job there is music constantly playing.  Sometimes this music is not of my own choosing or even something I like at all, like at work, but [...]
