Puppy posing so low to the ground!
Daisy waited for me as I took off my workout shoes.

I also like the sunlight in this shot. Such a pretty puppy!

100 Happy Days: Cooking

Cooking makes my kitchen smell amazing! I also like how it makes the kitchen the warmest spot in the house.

It was lovely to finish up my workout and watch my hubby take care of dinner.

Mark said the Barefoot Contessa’s bolognese recipe was easy to follow. I also liked the flavor combo of red wine, meat and tomatoes.

100 Happy Days: Baller

I felt like a baller today at O2 Bodyfit Bootcamp.

I used a 15-pound medicine ball for my wall ball circuit. I dropped it once. On my face.
That knocked off my glasses.

But I kept going.

I made a hearty lentil and tomato soup for lunch. I used a recipe by David Rocco.
#kvpkitchen Lentil and Tomato Soup w/ @DavidRoccosVita recipe. #vegetarian lunch. Added red wine. YUMMY! #kvpinmybelly #foodspotting #soup #foodstagram
His Dolce Vita episode on simple Italian soups intrigued me. I liked how he crafted flavorful broths without chicken or beef stock.

For this soup, I added chicken apple sausage and red wine. It tasted so rich and hearty.

100 Happy Days: Healthy Living

Healthy living and feeling stronger.
I used a 12-pound medicine ball for sit-ups and Russian twists during today’s O2 Bodyfit class. It was a tough circuit. However, I could handle the weight.
Last year, I used a 6-pound ball.

After class, I made vegetable quiche cups with green bell peppers, mushrooms, zucchini and red onions. I added Pepper Plant hot sauce.
I used a recipe from “The Kitchen is My Playground.”

Also – I love having leftover quiche cups!

100 Happy Days: Pasta

Pasta inspiration from Extra Virgin. Debi Mazar’s family looked like they enjoyed making fresh pasta.

Plus – it looked like this family had the solution to stop noodles from sticking together: Semolina.
#kvpkitchen Fresh pasta!! Ready for some sauce!!

I followed Gabriele Corcos’ recipe.
#kvpkitchen Making adorable pasta dough! Ready to roll out!!

I was amazed by this pasta dough. It felt like we finally hit the perfect ratio of eggs to flour. I think this is our best batch of pasta. Ever.

We served it with Gabriele’s red sauce and leftover zucchini cheese balls.

100 Happy Days: Dinner

Dinner and a documentary on the making of “The Prisoner.”

We made zucchini meatballs. David Rocco’s recipe didn’t have any meat. I ended up calling them zucchini cheese balls.

I also made garlic mashed white beans. I used Nigella Lawson’s recipe and added lime zest.
