anyone ever done the Bar Method? I'm in physical therapy to mend my knees, and was told to take up any type of exercise that won't hurt the knee joints (swimming, stretching, etc...). 
Did some research and found that the Bar Method helps to strengthen the muscles that support the knees and gives you a better range of flexibility.
I might take this up after P/T.  Would love to hear your thoughts.....

We had a heat wave last week and all I could tolerate was cold food with balsamic dressing.
And this cold food too.  (coffee-oreo). I need to re-create this at home--soon.

  1. Your pumpkin-vanilla Oreo ice cream is calling my name! (Seriously.)

  2. I have no idea you had so many ice cream recipes! Wow, seeing them all here makes me want ice cream!

  3. We need to be neighbors.

  4. I would like a scoop of each of those ice creams. Thank you.

  5. All of those ice cream recipes look fantastic! I can't believe you go out for ice cream all the time when you have so many wonderful, unique recipes. I haven't tried the bar method but when I was fighting runner's knee, I was told to try an elliptical. I love it and now cross train with it. It has no pressure on the joint and I always feel like it loosens my knee up.

  6. I'm having trouble thinking of a clever comment to leave....all I can think about is eating ice cream!

  7. way to make me crave ice cream... need to get that bowl in the freezer stat!!

  8. Coffee Oreo ice cream seems to be a new england thing, it is nowhere to be found around us (mid-atlantic) we did a new englang tour two summers ago, maine, new hampshire, boston and found it in most of the ice cream shops that we stopped in to get a treat. The kids were in heaven, their two favorite flavors combined. I made it a few times for the kids before my beloved ice cream maker broke.


I love your comments!
