• It’s Winter & Soup’s On!

    Picture Source Soup is one of the best parts of winter. It’s warm, it’s comforting, and one pot meals are super easy. Plus the varieties are endless. And as I discovered last year, January is National Soup Month. So I had to share with you a couple of my tried and true favorite soups to […]

  • TBT: Grilled Salmon with Avocado Salad

    I originally posted this recipe last summer so I’m calling this Throwback Tuesday. This is one of my favorite and easiest recipes. It’s Spring (although admittedly feels like late Fall here in Boston) and this salmon dish is perfect for grilling! But if you aren’t ready to fire up the grill quite yet, it’s a […]

  • Breakfast Cookies? YES PLEASE!

       I love cookies. They might be my favorite dessert. It’s actually a toss up between cookies, cake, and brownies which makes up like 75% of dessert options. I digress…I also like a very simple breakfast because as much as I would like to make more time for breakfast, I don’t. So when I started […]

  • Putting the Smooth in Smoothie

    Original post located here on The Academy for Nutrition and Dietetic’s Blog- Stone Soup. As a dietitian, I’m embarrassed to admit that I’ve been way behind the smoothie bandwagon.

  • Recipe: Bean and Chicken Sausage Stew

    I love food that’s high in flavor but short on time. So my favorite go to recipe in the fall and winter months are one pot meals. This recipe is a 15 minute Bean and Chicken Sausage stew I found on Pinterest via Real Simple. It’s right up my ally (with a few tweaks). Serve […]

  • Recipe: Arugula and Lentil Salad from Martha Stewart

    I recently tried out a recipe that I wanted to pass along. It’s a fantastic summer recipe that doesn’t necessarily require cooking, is incredibly fast and easy, and tastes great. I brought this dish to a potluck and it worked really well as a side dish. But you could also serve a bigger portion with […]

  • Breakfast Outside the Box with Janel Ovrut Funk

    My friend, colleague, and vegetarian food blogger Janel Ovrut Funk has an AWESOME idea to share for breakfast. She knows how much I value healthy fats in the diet and deplore the fat-free craze of the 90’s that seems to be hanging around in our cultural consciousness. So thank you Janel for this post for […]

  • Summer Salad Recipe with Couscous and Veggies
