When I set out to create a blog, my vision was a post on how make bone broth as a cornerstone of the website. Well, here I am over a year after my first post and I’m finally getting to it. (It feels good that this is my first real post since having my daughter 6 weeks ago). What’s been holding me back? Bone broth is actually really easy to make, but there are so many variables. However, the biggest reason for not posting a rec...

We have this pot, we call it the love pot, and everything we make in it tastes so, so good. We swear it’s the pot - we’ve been cooking in it since we met (almost 10 years!) and it seems to just be infused with the hundreds of soups and stews we made in it.


However, when I went to make this soup - I realized we didn't have our love pot!! We had brought soup in it on a recent trip up to Maine, and we left it there. Gasp! BUT - I...

I wrote this recipe for the Vernon Family Farms May 2018 newsletter. Vernon Family Farm is located in Newfields, NH and is one of my all time favorite farms! 

My family and I have been big fans of the food and the farmers at Vernon Family Farm for years. As a nutritionist, the importance of pastured chicken and fresh, local veggies is a major priority. We are incredibly grateful for the tireless work Jeremiah, Nicole and the ot...

I struggled with naming this recipe...it's not easy naming recipes! Whenever I make these (which is about 3 times a month) I always call the meal "Asian Rice Bowls," because the ingredients and flavors generally align with Asian inspired cuisine.  It is a quick meal not specific to a particular region though, so it didn’t feel right to call it Vietnamese or Thai or Korean. In the end I went with Asian Rice Bowls, because reall...

Adam came home from work at 5:30 the other night and I was sitting on the couch reading to Finn. He looked around, so perplexed. I asked him, “have you ever come home from work and I’ve been sitting with Finn?” We both kinda laughed and realized it, no, it had never happened! (we also had just gotten home from a long walk with friends, to boot!) 5:30pm at our home, and I’m sure in many of yours, is pretty chaotic. Everyone is...

We all know the feeling of being painfully hungry, “hangry” as some like to call it. You get home and you know you need food, and you need it RIGHT NOW. When we’re in this state, it’s rare that we make a healthy choice. If there are chips or cookies in the pantry, these foods are usually what we go for. Because the hunger runs so deep in this state, many of us overeat to the place of not feeling well, and to the point of feeli...

If we ask our little guy what he wants for dinner, his answer is always “RICE BOWLS!!” with plenty of enthusiasm. We have rice bowls of some sort once a week, often Asian inspired rice bowls (recipe to come), but these Mexican ones have been a staple for years. They’re easy, nourishing, and taste like the real deal. If you love Mexican food, try these!

We really like this with ripe avocado but guacamole is great too.  Feel free...

I don’t make chili often enough, but every time I do I’m reminded that - this is really quick and easy to make, and it’s so tasty! I know there are a lot of chili recipes out there in the world, but in case you’re looking for a new one, or just a reminder of what a hearty winter meal chili is - here you go!

If you can find frozen and chopped peppers at your local grocery store, use those instead of a fresh pepper. They’re much...

Ok...you might be saying to yourself, C’MON, another recipe with curry?! If you don’t like curry, I’m sorry, because this is my third recipe that calls for curry. If you like curry, you already know...you’re in the right place because we’ve got Curried Salmon Cakes and Curried Red Lentil Soup. I promise it won’t be all curry all of the time. Clearly, my family likes the flavor...but we do like other flavors, too. To be honest,...

Because we live by the motto “cook once, eat twice (or three or four times),” soup is our dear friend. This favorite soup of ours has it all - protein, healthy carbs, lots of veggies, good fats to keep us full, and plenty of bone broth to both strengthen our immune systems, and literally warm our souls.

At this point, you have likely heard the buzz about bone broth being so good for you. The buzz is true, real bone broth is one...
