As many of you know, I am not a fruit eater. I know, I know, that sounds crazy, especially for someone who spent 7 years as a vegetarian. I will tell you point blank that I have never missed fruit. I am in no way sad about “missing out” on fruity desserts, I have no […]
I try not to eat too much ice cream anymore (although it is one of the hardest things to turn down—which is how I sometimes end up with four scoops instead of one, which is why I must circle back to the try-not-to-indulge plan). But. July is National Ice Cream Month. And as I was pondering […]
My six-year-old son recently reported to me that my favorite food is salad. Salad? I thought. No way. My favorite food is not salad. It’s cheese. In fact, my dirty secret is that I don’t actually like to make salads.
I bet you have a favorite vegetable. Mine is asparagus. Or maybe spinach. I like green things. Which is why I’m so happy that it’s Spring! I eat a lot of asparagus in the Spring. But I recently learned (or maybe re-learned?) that my husband hates asparagus. So I’m trying to convince him by sticking […]
The truth is, I just love cookies. And even though I try to eat healthily, I still want to eat cookies. So I started making myself these easy peasy little chocolate cookie bites, and they satisfy my cravings while still offering nutrients! These babies are sweet and a hint of salty, chewy, chocolatey, and crisp.
I am on a breakfast kick. You already know I love eating my greens for breakfast, and I think you should too. I could seriously be happy eating breakfast all day. So, introducing: the best egg casserole in the whole world! True, there is no sausage in it. Actually, for me, that is exactly what […]
I don’t know about you, but I can be grumpy all day if my morning starts off wrong. When my kids are demanding cookies (yes, cookies) the second their feet hit the floor, and the dishes from last night are still on the counter, sometimes I just want to surrender. At 7:00am. It really […]
At my house, we like to eat our Thanksgiving dinner in the middle of the afternoon rather than at night. But no matter how much I tell myself to save room for the big meal, my body still thinks it wants to eat at lunchtime. Obviously, the solution is appetizers! You cannot go wrong with these easy […]
Question: What do you serve your family when they visit for Thanksgiving? I’m not talking about the big meal. I’m sure you do the whole turkey and pie thing. (Or maybe you like to order takeout Chinese, who knows?) I’m talking about the rest of the meals. When your out-of-town family comes to stay for more […]
“Greens” is like a love word for me. If someone tells me they made a dish with greens (or any specific version of greens, like chard or kale or spinach), I basically swoon. I love greens. My theory is that we begin to crave the things we eat a lot. I eat a lot of […]
