When It’s Hard to “Get Your Greens”

Sometimes–actually, most times–I reach the end of my day, and my brain starts to do a little checklist of what I’ve had, nutrition-wise. “Breakfast, lunch, dinner, okay. I’ve had zero greens…again!” Advertisements

Recipe From a Friend

The art of good, clean, delicious cooking is just one of the many things that this friend of mine is skilled at. He and his wife are both fabulous human beings with a heart for people, travel and food: Organic, of-the-earth food. It was from them that I learned how communal cooking can actually be….

Brunch-Worthy Banana “Fritters”

Happy almost-Easter! Is it just me, or does it feel like this is WAY too early to be having Easter Sunday? We had a streak there, from 2009-2012, where Easter was strictly an April thing… but that clearly changes now and again. Oh well. I’m off to pack for a brief weekend with family, but before…

These Grapes Were Made for Binging

Okay, perhaps you aren’t as impulsive/addictive of a person as I am, regarding food, but you’ll struggle. If you’re fond of the sweet and sour taste of, say, Sourpatch Kids, Gummy Worms, etc., then resisting the temptation to stuff the entire bunch of these grapes in your mouth will be tough. That said, you’ve no need…

Birthday Reese’s

  It being Colt’s birthday yesterday, I had an excuse to make a little something sweet. And, as luck would have it, I came across a recipe on cookingclassy.com (the Reese’s Cupcake!!!) that was perfectly suited for the occasion.
