The skin of ñame looked much like tree bark, and peeling it with a peeler proved to be quite the task.
After a weekend of debauched eating at two Halloween parties, a crew of nine from CrossFit Addiction set out for a Sunday hike at Amicalola Falls.
We circled the dirt ring to cheer on the competitors, but chose to keep our money in our pockets.
Friday night, I met a couple girlfriends at Pure Taqueria in Inman Park. I’d been to the location in Woodstock once, but had never tasted the food. So Friday night, I splurged and sampled the queso gringo, crispy taquitos, sangria and skinny margarita. Everything was amazing. The queso…well what female doesn’t like cheese?! The entrée […]
Have you ever gotten that warm, fuzzy feeling inside? You know, the one that has you blissfully smiling at the mention of a certain name?

Our friend Kevin (future Honey Do List extraordinaire) and his wife Nicole traveled from Augusta for a day visit. As fellow CrossFitters with a competitive streak, Kevin challenged everyone to handstand pushups. James followed […]
I grew up Southern suburban. I didn’t milk cows or pick fresh eggs from the hen house, but I was raised on homemade biscuits and casseroles, and my dad always had a garden out back. My parents canned their own jelly, and we even picked up bushels of fresh field peas from Tifton each summer so […]
