Easy Southwestern Salads with Cumin-Roasted Sweet Potato
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.
Kale salmon caesar is a metaphor for my entire marriage. It represents a blending of taste buds and nutritional ideals, a desire for simplicity and for dinner around the table together. To be honest, drenching salmon in caesar dressing is one of the only ways I can get every member of my family to eat […]
Colorful Kale Ribbon Salad
Thanksgiving is next week. It’s next week! How did that happen? My feelings about Thanksgiving have changed pretty significantly since I was a kid.
If you are ever thinking to yourself that you need to get more veggies into your diet, I have one excellent suggestion: buy a colorful vegan cookbook. (What, Melissa?

So last week, she came armed with books to read to Jake […]

Baby weight. Boo. Salad. Yay!
For the last several weeks, we have been scraping by in our house with random odds and ends and leftovers. I have taken to looking into my fridge around 6:00 and hurriedly cobbling together something for dinner…or else calling Dominos.

Farmer’s Market Panzanella
Are you overwhelmed with tomatoes yet? Overflowing with bell peppers? I really prefer to eat the bounty of summer produce I have been bringing in from my tiny garden and the farmer’s market raw.
