SHOULD YOU SNEAK VEGGIES INTO YOUR KID’S FOOD?

There’s a lot of debate about the pros and cons of sneaking vegetables into kids’ food. I know some moms who’ve given up the notion of getting anything green into their offspring unless it’s in disguise. Entire books are devoted to the subject, such as Jessica Seinfeld’s Deceptively Delicious and Missy Chase Lapine’s The Sneaky […]

PINEAPPLE KALE PROTEIN SMOOTHIE

We have a newly minted vegetarian in our house. My oldest, Isabelle, stopped eating meat and poultry a few months back. Although she is a big animal lover and certainly cares for the planet, these weren’t the driving factors in her dietary decision making. This wasn’t a political statement; she’s just not that crazy about meat […]

15 MINUTE FIX: OVEN BAKED CHICKEN TAQUITOS

This “Year of Less Food Waste” business is turning out to be a source of inspiration and creativity in the kitchen for me. Take these taquitos, for example. With no dinner plan in mind, I scanned the contents of fridge and freezer and came up with the following to work with: Half of a leftover […]

8 MOM-APPROVED VALENTINE’S DAY TREATS

We’ve talked about this before. How, despite all the naysayers, skeptics, and romantic grumps who rail against a holiday they claim is solely about selling overpriced roses and underwhelming candy, when it comes to Valentine’s Day, I’m all in. A celebration built entirely around love and chocolate? How can you get down on that? Before […]

MY WEEK IN FOOD

I don’t think we will be suffering from scurvy over here any time soon given the amount of citrus coming through our doors this week. To start with, I plucked nearly every last Meyer lemon from the first of my two little trees that was ready to harvest. They are almost too pretty to slice […]

EASY PRESERVED MEYER LEMONS

I’m seeing more and more recipes these days calling for preserved lemons. Perhaps it’s the growing influence of Moroccan and Middle Eastern cuisine on our diet. Should we called it the “Ottolenghi effect”? What’s tricky is that store-bought preserved lemons aren’t always easy to come by. Plus, the ones I’ve tried haven’t been particularly worthwhile. Lucky for […]

YEAR OF LESS FOOD WASTE PART THREE: KITCHEN SINK MINESTRONE

Today’s post marks the last in my Year of Less Food Waste series. It was written by dietetic intern Grace Voorheis, who also took the lead in developing the minestrone recipe. You’ll notice the two soup photos look very different. Same recipe, two different weeks in my fridge, so two different spins on the same soup. Both […]

STOVE TOP SRIRACHA LIME POPCORN

It’s National Popcorn Day and given my propensity to support the underdog, I feel compelled to give America’s most magical snack a shout out. Why the underdog you ask? How you would feel living in the shadow of Martin Luther King Jr Day? Plus, I never need an excuse to talk popcorn. It’s one of […]

MY WEEK IN FOOD

If you had a peek at my last Week in Food, you may have thought I’d disappeared on a chocolate-fueled bender, never to return. But alas, I welcomed January and all the healthful eating that implies. Launched into the New Year with a vegetable extravaganza starting with a new favorite salad: chopped kale and Romaine, pink lady […]

A YEAR OF LESS FOOD WASTE: 10 TIPS TO REDUCE FOOD WASTE

It’s Part Two of A Year of Less Food Waste. Last week I wrote about the profound impact of food waste on our environment, thanks to the 36 pounds that gets tossed per person each month. This week I bring it home and show you how to begin thinking about reducing waste in your very own […]
