This sounds like a dramatic title for a recipe, especially one for egg salad….I get it. But honestly, egg salad has saved me! When Finn was a newborn I had a hard time prioritizing feeding myself. When I had a free moment I didn’t know what to do, and usually eating wasn’t top on my list. This was for two reasons - I was avoiding SO many foods due to digestive issues for him, and I had nothing that was easy to grab and eat wit...

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 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...

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...

As far as I’m concerned, there is nothing better on a cold New England morning than hot soup. I often eat soup for breakfast, but when we don’t have any leftover, I make this simple egg broth soup. You can literally add anything you want to this  - as simple as broth, egg, sea salt and pepper, but on a morning that you have more time and some good left overs, get a little more creative.

Homemade bone broth is a true superfood....

Another (curry flavored) weeknight staple, coming at-cha! We are getting in the habit of having a few meals that we eat each week and just get creative with what we serve on the side. These salmon cakes are an every other week go-to, and are a hit each time. You can make the batter up to 24 hours ahead - you can even shape the cakes ahead of time, too! These salmon cakes are so nutrient dense, easy and great because there are...
