Healthy Broccoli Cheddar Soup

Healthy Broccoli Cheddar Soup I said it before and I’ll say it again: I am not a big broccoli or cauliflower fan. But for some reason I was craving broccoli cheddar soup on Sunday. And so I decided to make a version that features not one but both of these objectionable vegetables. Crazy, right?…

It was Jason’s birthday last Saturday. In true Two of a Kind fashion, I made him breakfast and a special birthday treat. The family also got together for dinner at Sakoon, a place we’ve been wanting to try since seeing it on Check, Please! The meal was delicious.

And just like that, it’s 2015! Can you believe it? I wasn’t even awake to usher in the new year. Sadly, I was in bed and asleep by 9 p.m. – that’s what happens when you have a few glasses of wine with dinner while under the weather. The good news? I slept 10 hours and woke…
