Cleaning Up My Life

  • 10:22 am Tuesday, March 28th, 2017 by Ann Kelly

If there’s one thing I can say about the way I’ve changed my eating habits is that there’s nothing I really miss. I believe that deprivation is the downfall of any “diet” which is exactly why I’m not dieting. I’ve taken the step to make lifelong changes that have already given me great results with the loss of 15 pounds. So what exactly am I doing? I’m eating clean, and that means eliminating as many processed foods as possible. That was a little bit of work at the start but the results are so worth it. I have a pantry [More]

From Collision To Cannoli With Chef Marco

  • 9:40 am Monday, March 20th, 2017 by Ann Kelly

How does someone go from dreams of working in a collision shop to stuffing cannolis? With ease if you’re Chef Marco who will be in town for Festa Italiana in historic Ybor City. It’s a great story that goes very well with the kind of Italian foods that will be the highlight of the Festival. Chef Marco will highlight Galbani® cheese at the Festival, possibly reveal a secret or two and who know, he might bring you on stage to be his assistant.

Stocking up on snacks for the weekend? Check to make sure you don’t have these in the freezer. There’s a recall for  their  “Marketside Extra Large Supreme Pizza,” with lot code 20547 over listeria concerns.  If you do have some throw them away or bring them  back to the store for a refund.

Taking Stock And Taking Control

  • 5:42 am Monday, March 13th, 2017 by Ann Kelly

It’s my personal believe that there are no miracles or quick fixes for losing weight and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. It has to be a lifetime commitment, and that’s what keeps me going even when I’m feeling a little discouraged. Between you and I, that’s the way I’ve felt for the past few weeks. Dealing with the ups and down that come with a chronic disease like lupus have been a challenge but I can’t let that lead to sabotaging the hard work that’s already led to a 14 pound weight loss. The single best think I’ve ever done for [More]

The Recipe For A Great Vacation

  • 10:22 am Sunday, March 5th, 2017 by Ann Kelly

This is a tough one; how to limit a nice vacation down to just five favorite things. Oh, and realizing you had such a good time you kept forgetting to take pictures! But it’s all good in Ann Kelly’s Kitchen. When you start with holding a four week old baby in your arms who wants that food NOW , I suddenly get why we all carry that attitude into adulthood when waiting in a restaurant.  But welcome to the world Brianna Laurel Lehman, you’re going to love it here. We sure all love you.
