5 minutes Baked Pesto Chicken

This post was originally published as Baked Pesto Chicken by Laurel on Health Food blog Yesterday I had a MAJOR craving for pesto, so I made some organic chicken thighs with loads of pesto and fresh lemon juice. Wanted to share with you. This one has a super easy preparation because I used store-bought pesto. One of these days I’m gonna make my own pesto again and post the recipe here. But until then, this Baked Pesto Chicken is something you can put together in 5 minutes, stick in the oven, and forget about for an hour. Nice!

Though it is difficult to be partners with a man who constantly frustrates you with his passive aggressive behavior, there are things you can do to break through his lack of involvement.

Single in Romania

Single in Romania

I had an orgasm, a true orgasm with only a hug! I am 31 and I am not inexperienced sex-wise. However, it had never happened to me before and I was shocked! I did not think that it was possible at all! Well, maybe the fact that I had not had sex for almost 5 months also brought in its contribution…, but I have had my “dry-spell” periods before and no such thing had occurred. It happened during the last night of an international workshop in Romania (I am from Bulgaria). Good things always happen on the last day!

Acceptance Versus Resistance

Acceptance Versus Resistance

Pinkee here~ Recently I posted about couples’ meditation.  The purpose of meditation is to release resistance.  Resistance can be defined as all the negative thoughts and feelings which interfere with your being in your natural state. In other words, your ego.  Your natural state, on the other hand, is one of joy, love, and truth.  It is your God(ess) given birthright- but how much time do we spend in that state, really?

Types of Readings in Tarot

Types of Readings in Tarot

When working with the supportive properties of Tarot, the concept of “reading” comes from viewing which cards are put into which position in a layout or spread. Spreads, simply put, are methods of laying down oracle cards; in this particular discussion we are referring to Angel Cards. Every card is assigned a certain position, and the knowledge of meaning of that position can help us gain a better understanding of messages of from our angels/higher beings.

Cheating is not in my blood

Cheating is not in my blood

As young as I remember it was instilled in me “don’t talk to Pop Pop” outside the apt. I understood  this as  to be normal. Even when we ran into him at the church we all attended (but separately) I was not to speak to him.

Of Love and Money

Of Love and Money

Silver linings are everywhere. you just have to know where to look for them. After my divorce it became quickly apparent that I needed to find ways to save a few bucks here and there. Expenses that I had never really looked at before, suddenly came under intense scrutiny. When you start to look at where nickels and dimes wander off to, you start to realize that what you once looked at as just the cost of raising a child, is really the cost of laziness. And laziness has a whole other set of unintended costs as well.
