Last week I was really craving some good french fries. In the past when I’ve tried to make them at home, my oven fries have either come out sad and floppy or burnt to a crisp. I was determined this time to make a batch of fries that didn’t suck. The keys to success turned […]
I’m back! Well, sort of. I’m kind of enjoying the lazy, crazy days of summer that leave us looking happily spent at the end of the day. We’ve been doing lots of swimming, fort building, game playing, and reading. Dinners with friends, art classes, playdates and simple meals. I had my friend Amy over one […]
While in Dallas last weekend, I not only got to get my bliss on, but I also had some good hang out time with my sister. As she was driving me to the airport yesterday, I realized we had failed to take a single photo together. So I pulled out my iPhone and attempted to […]
I can’t take credit for this idea. My friend and fellow celiac Shannon told me about this unlikely pairing last summer, and I have been devouring it ever since. Sounds weird, doesn’t it? I promise, it’s so good. Just be sure to portion some out on a plate, or you’ll end up eating the entire bowl. […]
I remember the first time I saw a bunch of rainbow carrots. I was in awe of their beauty and couldn’t wait to see what they tasted like. But I was afraid to mess them up. How would I cook them? Should I cook them? Then I exhaled and realized I could buy more than […]
Joe finally woke up without a fever this morning, but he passed it right along to Leila. So we started out another sick day at home with some Shirley Temple. Unfortunately for all of us, the song she sings about animal crackers in her soup will be forever stuck in our heads. We took a […]
Have you ever tasted a turnip? Hey now, don’t turn up your nose at me (get it?). I promise, they’re really quite good. I had only tried them once or twice before as part of a root vegetable gratin, so when I found the bunch of turnips in my Agritopia CSA basket, I wondered what […]
One of the first things we planted in our community garden was a variety of radishes. Not something I buy from the store very often, but surprisingly exciting to pull out of the ground and nibble on. Our first few radishes were small, pulled up by tiny hands, beautifully pink and purple. Joe and Leila […]
The very first time I posted about brussels sprouts, they were still considered a “hated” vegetable. Every time I mentioned them, noses would turn up in a wrinkle and for good reason. The “haters” had only ever had their brussels sprouts over-cooked and steamed to death. I didn’t blame them for turning up their noses. […]
Before I was a dietitian, I was a waitress. Serving food is something everyone should have to do once in their life. It’s hard work, but the best money you can make as a teenager and college student. I worked at many different restaurants including Chili’s, Bison Witches, and Ruby Tuesday. Back in my Ruby […]
