Oh, guacamole, I love you so. But you are a temperamental lover. You brown so easily. And you are sold in such large portions, I can only love you so much at once. Ah, guacamole, what are we to do?
For some strange reason, Hubs and Kiddo are not fond of avocados or the delicious green mash-up, guacamole. Crazy, [...]
Kiddo swears he doesn’t like carrots. I know better. He eats them all the time and he doesn’t even know it. Because I serve up a nutrient-dense, veggie-packed marinara sauce chock full of carrots. Shhh! Don’t tell him, just yet, that his pizza has a full serving of vegetables on it.
While I am not [...]
I <3 potato skins.
No, seriously, ya’ll. I love potato skins.
And then I discovered those jokers in the restaurants are frying my skins! Ugh.
I decided to take things into my own hands. (Besides which, I only know one place near me that will serve me potato skins with broccoli, and I [...]
It may be the middle of winter (who can tell with temps having been in the 50s), but I’ve been eating salad like a rabbit for a month, now. Due in large part to going wheat free, the canvas of a salad allows me to be creative and eat more healthfully. Mostly I have eaten [...]
Apparently I’m preparing for Lent — except we’re not Catholic. Lately, every time I am at the grocery store I find a too-good-to-pass-up deal on seafood and into the cart it goes. After yesterday’s excursion to the grocery, I came home to realize that I was already well stocked in the fish department, and now [...]
Since two of the three people at my dinner table eat meat, it is not unusual for me to build the meal around the slab of dead flesh for their plate, choosing the grains and vegetables to accompany it. When that is the case, I often double up the veggies for me, or add an [...]
A few days ago, I decided to make a favorite recipe from Joy of Cooking, Tuscan Beans, accompanied with rice and something, something. In poking around the interwebs, I found a Tuscan Bean and Rice soup that looked interesting. That is when I developed [...]
We’ve known for several years, now, about Kiddo’s nut allergy. And let me confirm that the discovery of that was a frightening process, beginning with an allergic reaction at home that scared the bejesus out of me. I am on year nine of being a vegetarian. We seem to attract friends with other food [...]
Tackling the dysfunctional relationship Americans have with food is overwhelming. According to a survey mentioned on webmd, many americans know they need to eat functional foods, like leafy greens, but one of the reasons they don’t is because they don’t know how to prepare it…that, and access to them. Even [...]
Kiddo is a breakfast aficionado. I think the child would be happy to eat breakfast foods for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Come to think of it, there are days when he has done just that. The other day I had planned breakfast for dinner again, and was delighted that Kiddo wanted to help. Usually [...]
