Spring Break Is My New Years

We’re about a quarter of the way through the year. How did you make out on your New Year’s resolutions? Personally, I feel that the start of Spring is the perfect time to make positive changes, tackle new challenges and clean out the “crap” so to speak. Who wants to do all of that stuff…

Not Too Sweet Granola

I’ve never been a big granola eater. Until now. My sister in law was in town recently and to celebrate her birthday we had one of those “dinners of a lifetime” in NYC. Eleven Madison Park is truly magical, and if you ever get the chance to eat there, do it. The chef, Daniel Humm,…

Chocolate or Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding

Chia seeds are definitely an acquired taste…or should I say “texture” since they basically take on the flavor of whatever you mix them with. But, they are so easy to cook with and bake with, it’s easy to add a big dose of anti-inflammatory omega-3’s to any meal. That’s why this pudding is popping up…

Roasted Cauliflower Soup

It’s crazy cold again here in Connecticut! That means it’s soup making weather for me. I love a recipe that has only a few wholesome ingredients, but can still knock my socks off! There is nothing complicated about this recipe…so easy, pretty quick to make, and you can add different herbs or exotic spices to…

I couldn’t believe how easy it was! Here is the recipe that started my obsession: Ingredients 1 medium pumpkin 2 tbsp olive oil…

Fresh Peach Salsa

Late July through August is peach picking time here in Connecticut, and we are so lucky to have some great nearby farms that have “Pick Your Own” fruits and vegetables. (Visit www.pickyourown.org for a list of your local pick you own). What I like about this particular farm is that you can eat the peaches…

Summer Farro Salad

It’s barbeque season and instead of signing up to bring the same old pasta salad I’ve been experimenting with grains to mix things up a bit! Farro is such a cool grain. It’s high in fiber, B vitamins, iron, and it actually tastes good! You can serve this alone or over greens to bulk it…

Do You Have a Picky Eater?

Imagine being reprimanded for not eating your green beans or being sent to bed early because you refused to eat your fish. Even as adults we carry food aversions and would become frustrated if someone commented on our lack of an adventurous palate. Give your kid (and yourself) a break. Children, especially young ones, are…
