Mango-Carrot Smoothie

Happy new year! I can’t believe how fast 2014 flew by. I had such a great year and I hope you did too. I traveled — a lot. Asheville, NC, San Diego, Madison, WI/Chicago, Italy, Boston, a Midwest Thanksgiving roadtrip, Tampa, and finally Hawaii. I am so lucky that I got these opportunities to travel […]

Chicken and Farro Soup

Soup season is officially upon us, people! The weather lately has been decidedly dreary, with plenty of rain and wind and chilly temps. I knew when I got home today that it would be soup for dinner. A few days ago I posted an article on my Facebook page extolling the benefits of eating and […]

Veggie Lasagne

First off, sorry for the radio silence. Sometimes the weather is just too nice to spend evenings writing blog posts…sometimes I’m awfully busy with I don’t even know what, and all I can think to make is endless nights of tacos…sometimes I try to cook some things that sound good in my head but don’t […]

Tomato Pie

I am so. Freakin‘. Excited. for tomatoes. While I’ve been busy crying over my one lone tomato on my plant at home (with two new potentials as of last night, yippee!), my CSA has delivered. I got to take up to 3 pounds with last week’s pick-up, and you better believe I took every last […]

Frittata for One

I had something like this at brunch with friends a few months ago. At the time I wasn’t crazy about the particular dish but I liked the concept. I knew with some customization, I could make it perfect. And I’d also been making a lot of omelets (necessary when you get a dozen eggs a […]

Homemade Granola

Turns out granola is super-easy to make at home. And it has less fat and sweetener, and none of the nasty preservatives and weird chemicals in the store-bought stuff. You can customize it to taste exactly how you want — there are no wrong answers here! And bonus: It makes your house smell amazing! It […]

Spaghetti Squash Casserole

Can someone please make this winter stop? I mean seriously. It is late March and it is snowing! We had gorgeous weather on Saturday — a friend and I went for a hike on the Appalachian Trail, wearing short sleeves and shorts, and enjoyed some ice cream afterwards…just for the temperature to never climb above […]

Butternut Squash and Goat Cheese Bake

This is a tasty dish with a less-than-descriptive name. Sorry about that. I tried Googling “types of casseroles” and “terms for baked dishes” in hopes of the brilliant minds of the Internet giving me something better, but…”bake” was the best I could come up with. And to think I sometimes consider myself a decent writer. […]

Butternut Squash Sauce

To start: Sorry for the hiatus! Some wickedly bad weather and a wonderful vacation have kept me from the blog for far too long. Why is it that when the weather is at its worst, I lose all my creative juices and turn back to the tried and true recipes? Maybe it’s because my body […]

A Real Food Super Bowl

It’s not that hard to serve real food at your Super Bowl party (or any party)! Here is a round-up of my favorite party foods that you won’t be ashamed to serve your friends. Not a cool ranch Dorito in sight. Of course it ain’t a party (at least in my house) without some guac. […]
