And so the hiatus ends…

The Not So Doughie hiatus has come to an end and I am ready to get back into blogging.  I apologize to those who missed my posts, but I promise to get back into it.  The most difficult part is finding the time to blog.  As a food blogger, it is crucial to have sunlight to capture quality pictures.  Winter in Michigan has been pretty brutal with the cold & darkness.  It’s impossible to get home from work & throw together dinner then take a good picture.  Although it isn’t even remotely warm, I decided that my blog isn’t really about my picture quality, but more so sharing my meals & snippets of my life with those who are interested.

I think I was trying to perfect each post & not be very me.  So here I am again and excited to start sharing some new, not so doughie, recipes and also just about life in general!

Although I don’t have a recipe to share today, I leave you with some dough bites & potential blog ideas.


who is sick of winter, say me!  MEEEEEEE!  I am beyond sick of the coats, socks, cold, dry, salty cars etc etc.  I need some vitamin d!  Bryan, Chase & I went skiing up north where it was record lows (-24).  The trip definitely did me in.  Bring on the sunshine!


since the beginning of the year, I have been focusing on my health a lot.  I joined a nice gym where I began falling in love with yoga again.  I did a few Pinterst-inspired monthly challenges and really changed a lot of my lifestyle to incorporate healthy meals, smaller portions, limited carbs, and daily exercise into my life.  My favorite new toy is my fit bit.  More to come on how I use it each day.


When I joined the gym, I received a coupon to try out Door to Door Organics.  It is a weekly (or whatever delivery option you choose) that delivers organic produce & any additional organic product you add to your cart to you.  My favorite are the add-ons.  I have been buying organic meats and poultry from local farmers.  The quality is insanely delicious.  More to come on this soon.


Another monthly food program we participate in is called KidStir.  Each month Chase receives a box containing about 3 recipes and some utensils or products to use in your recipes.  We have had a lot of fun making these recipes.  The first package comes with a binder that you collect all the recipes in so we have a nice little book started.  More to come on this too with some pictures.


Blog-spiration… is there anything in particular that you would like to see featured on Not So Doughie?  Any genre or a specific dish?  I am brainstorming ideas and am always open for suggestions.

I love forward to getting back into the swing of blogging.  I hope all my followers continue to follow & please let your friends and family know about my blog!
