3 Looks for a Summer Wedding

It seems not too long ago when I shared three looks to wear to a spring wedding. But that season has come and gone so quickly, and summer is upon us. And it is the biggest season of the year for weddings, so chances are you have a few invites and may be wondering what to wear. It's pretty easy to figure out summer wedding attire if you keep the location in mind.

Of course you have the invite to start with as well. It should say "Black Tie Attire" or "Black Tie Optional" or perhaps something like "Formal Beach Attire," and it will have the ceremony time. Generally indoor evening weddings call for more formal attire than outdoor afternoon weddings.

For an indoor wedding, no matter what time of year, you can never go wrong with a Black Formal Dresses. An elegant knee-length cocktail dress, like this FAIRY COUPLE Women's Off the Shoulder Lace Vintage Wedding Party Cocktail Dress is perfect for a black-tie optional indoor wedding, while a sleeveless o…

Lightened Up (Baked) Egg Fried Rice


Have you ever seen egg fried rice prepared at a Chinese restaurant? It starts with a ton of butter. While that makes it taste delicious, it also adds a lot of fat and calories to an otherwise healthy dish. Make it at home and you can cut out all of that extra fat!

INGREDIENTS
  • 4 eggs
  • 3-4 cups steamed rice (go for brown for some extra goodness)
  • few tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
  • 1-2 cups mixed veggies (you could use fresh or frozen; peas, chopped carrots, onions, broccoli, snow peas, peppers, mushrooms, the possibilities here are nearly endless)
  • black pepper and salt to taste
  • grated ginger root or garlic (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Prep the rice in a steamer or boiling pot according to directions on the package. Use 1 to 2 cups dried rice. Whether you're using fresh or frozen veggies, toss them in the same pot when the rice is just about done and mix thoroughly. *If you're using fresh onions or mushrooms, you'll want to saute them first by browning them in a shallow pan with oil or butter for a few minutes. When the rice is finished, add in the spices and soy sauce and stir.

2. Preheat oven to 350 F. Spread the rice and veggies evenly into a shallow casserole dish.

3. Beat 4 eggs and pour over the rice. Use a spoon to spread it and help it work it's way into the rice.

4. Bake about 12-15 minutes or until the egg is thoroughly cooked. Before serving fluff the rice with a fork.
