Since my blog is titled Eat Like an Actress, I thought it was about time we took a look at some the things actresses actually eat! Because, after all, they are, whether we like it or not, a huge influence on our lifestyles, often looking to what they eat, where they hang out, what they wear, how often they workout etc., to determine what we can do to enhance our own...

I woke up this morning to the sun shining and the most perfect early fall breeze blowing and the gardener already outside among the green, as busy as the humble bumbles around him, buzzing from autumn flower to autumn flower and I just had to add to the blissfulness of the moment by filling the house with the smell of baking. There’s something so cozy about pottering...

Let’s be honest, eating veggies is never exciting. A plate of veggies has never gotten me salivating like a plate of freshly baked chocolate chip cookies or brownies could. They just don’t have the same effect, even though we all know well which our bodies would prefer more. All our colorful plant food friends are packed full of phytonutrients (highly nutritious...

Why are Moms the best things in the world?!! Well first off, they hold us safe in their tummies for nine months before (through a lot of pain (Sorry Mom!) bring us into this crazy wonderful world, then in a prolonged sleep deprived state, they hold us, hug us and care for us, wiping our bottoms and mouths clean until we are able to do it ourselves. They help us with...

No matter what diet I’ve ever undertaken there’s one thing I’ve never been willing to compromise no matter what… and that’s dessert. You know, something sweet to end the day with. It’s a habit I haven’t yet kicked, but honestly, I don’t want to. I feel like dessert is one of the joys of being alive, like hearing the rain outside while you’re cozy...

Gluten Free Cheesy Salmon Pie.   It’s one of those rare days in Ireland where the sun makes her late summer debut and temperatures reach a perfect high of 28 degrees. It may only happen a handful of times in an Irish year but jeez, when Ireland has a beautiful day, there may be no country to compare. As elusive as these days are, I always find myself trying...

When one thinks of some of life’s most comforting aromas, the smell of an apple pie baking in the oven, a loaf of homemade bread on a cold day, or the glorious scent of pancakes on a sleepy weekend morning all come to mind. Most of us would agree that there’s no more magical a combination in life than that of flour, butter and sugar. A bakery, with all it’s...

So my sister Fiona recently bought this book about green beauty and the importance of taking note of what exactly we are rubbing on our face and body in hopes of all over beautiful skin. As remember not only is it important to choose wisely when picking out what you’re going to put in your body, but also what we put on our bodies. So I asked her to let us in...

The one thing about being home in Ireland on a cool late summers day is the likeliness of walking into the kitchen at lunch time to find Mama’s big steel pot bubbling away, releasing the most tantalizing rich smells of garlic and onions and the days concoction or combination of vegetables, all the aromas complimenting each other and filling our senses until...

Recently I’ve taken a trip back to my home country of Ireland for music related reasons and along with all the other delicious staples of the Irish diet that I have been indulging in, I have returned to the daily consumption of a good old cup of tea. Tea is to Ireland what coffee is to America. The comforting daily liquid that fuels our day! There’s nothing like...
