Pasta with Sun Gold Tomatoes

Matt and I didn’t get out act together in time to sign up for a CSA this summer. While there is certainly no shortage of great farmers markets in NYC, I’ve missed the weekly surprise veggies to plan our menu around. I think it’s actually easier for me to be surprised because I’m so indecisive when grocery shopping! ...more

Corn, Tomato, and Romaine Salad with Spicy Seared Salmon Salad and Yogurt-Feta Dressing

Long time no talk! I guess I fell out of the blogging routine over the past few months… Life has been busy, but great. My nutrition program has been flying by and I’ll be applying to dietetic internships before I know it ....more

Miso-Creamed Kale and Mushrooms with Tofu

This miso soup has been making a come-back this winter, so I was searching for ways to use the miso in our fridge when I came across this recipe for miso-creamed kale. I was sold when I read the description that it tests the limits how much umami you can use in a single dish. Challenge accepted ....more

Slow Cooker Mushroom Farrotto with Gremolata

I’ve been experimenting with my slow cooker lately without much luck. I love the idea of slow cookers – that you can just set it, forget it, and dinner is just ready when you come home. And I love how slow cookers can make tough cuts of meat tender with almost zero effort ....more

Chicken and Cabbage Potstickers Spicy Soy and Sesame Dipping Sauce

Potstickers have been on my things-to-make-someday list for way too long. I’m obsessed with them, and I always go through the bags of frozen potstickers from Trader Joe’s in, like, 2 days. And because it is a huge project to get around in, let alone check out at the Trader Joe’s closest to me, I thought it would be best to make a huge batch of my own ....more

Coconut Red Lentil Curry

Sometimes I’m amazed at what can be made out of pantry ingredients. The other day, I was trying to figure out what to make with what I had: red lentils, coconut milk, and lots of spices. A quick Google search later, I came across this recipe for coconut red lentil curry ....more

Beet, Orange, and Ginger Smoothie

I’ve been loving my morning smoothies so much that I recently tried to give up coffee to try to simplify my morning routine. Spoiler alert: I lasted a day and a half. I was already down to just a small cup in the morning (most of the time), and I thought it would just make my life easier to not be so dependent on it ....more

Pasta e Ceci (Pasta with Chickpeas)

It’s taking everything in my power to not go on a rant about this weather. I know, it’s winter. I’m just a total wimp ....more

Coconut Almond Truffles

I know Valentine’s Day is kind of a Hallmark holiday, but Matt and I will be using it as an excuse to eat a lot of truffles. Two years ago, we ordered a black truffle and had a multi-course feast. We didn’t get our act together last year and totally regretted it, so this year…it’s happening ....more
