It’s the best meal of the year: Thanksgiving Dinner. I’m getting excited right now just thinking about it. The turkey, the mashed potatoes, the stuffing…it’s all so wonderful. I remember my first Thanksgiving after getting married. There were only four of us celebrating in a tiny apartment, but the table was loaded with food. We […]
Last week I hosted a Noonday Collection trunk show. My friend Sarah drove up from Tucson so we could have fun trying on all the beautiful jewelry Noonday has to offer. I only added a few fifteen things to my Christmas wishlist. I set out a few simple appetizers for the guests. We had popcorn, antipasto bites, […]
My favorite part of Halloween is probably the annual “make-the-face-of-your-pumpkin” photo. That never gets old. What does get old? The heat. I know, we choose to live here, but can’t I just wear a scarf once in the month of October? No? Ok fine. I’ll just take my whiny self into the air-conditioned house and curl […]
The first time Joe took a bit of hummus, he proudly exclaimed, “I love this humpus!” Yes, humpus. We laughed so hard that the name stuck. So if you come over and I put out a tray of veggies and humpus, please make sure to refer to it accordingly. For October entertaining, I love to […]
This week I bought the GIANT bag of carrots at Costco and brought them home only to remember that we didn’t bring our BlendTec to Montana. Hmm, what to do with all the carrots? Then I remembered making garlicky pickled carrots a few years ago and instantly had a craving for them. I whipped these […]
As a dietitian with celiac disease, May is one of my favorite months. Not only do we get to shine a light with Celiac Awareness Month, but we also get to share just how good gluten-free food can taste! One of the funniest things I hear from people is, “Oh I could never give up […]
I love making frittatas. A little too much apparently, because my family seems to be tired of them. So I started making mini frittatas, just for me. I eat two slices and save two slices for the next day. Perfect! Just like regular frittatas, you can make this any way you like with whatever you […]
Last week I promised you the recipe for simple fish tacos Leila requested on her birthday. I make these all the time, and the kids go crazy for them. I think part of the reason is because the fish, while delicious, is also mild in flavor (and not “fishy” at all). The other reason is […]
Yesterday we celebrated Leila’s 5th birthday with fish tacos and strawberry vanilla cake. She loved the fish tacos, but she may have been even more excited about the cake. It turned out even better than I remembered, and I may have had another piece for breakfast this morning. You can find the recipe for the […]
Spring Training is over, shorts season is here, and I am not 20 years old anymore. Therefore, it’s time to start working out again. I don’t have much of a plan except to do something every day. Whether it’s a DVD, a jog around the neighborhood or quick circuit in the living room, I am […]
