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 […]
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 […]

A weird thing happens when you have a newborn. Suddenly, you find yourself revealing way more about parts of your body, your sleep habits, and bodily functions in general to your friends (and near strangers) than you ever would have otherwise. If you are breastfeeding, your entire life suddenly feels like it hinges on your […]
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 […]
Hello, friends. It sure has been a while since I’ve written here, but I hope you’ll extend some grace to me! I found out on New Year’s Day that I am expecting a new little one, and wow has she been requiring all of my energy! (And so have my other two tots. All the […]
“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 […]
