Superfood Tropical Smoothie

I can’t pinpoint why, but I have been seriously dragging during the second half of the day. One way I’ve been combating my late afternoon slump is through diet – amping up my vegetable intake and cramming extra nutrition wherever I can manage. My smoothies, for example, were always what I would consider healthy but […]

Kale and Collard Chips

When Ruby turned six months, I thought I’d get another chance to share some favorite baby puree recipes*, but as it turns out she prefers to self-feed and to eat things with more texture.

Coconut-Crusted French Toast

I used to think of French toast as an excuse to eat dessert for breakfast, but lately I’ve come around to making it pretty regularly. I mean, it’s really just eggs, milk, and bread, right? Okay, so maybe I fry it in butter. And sometimes I drench it in maple syrup. But it’s basically like […]

A confetti of kale, quinoa, almonds, cranberries, citrus, onion, and cheese, this […]

Caramelized White Hot Chocolate

So, how is everyone’s holiday season going? I aim to be the kind of person who takes December in stride, staying above the the fray when it comes to stress and general busyness, but if I’m being real the past week really wore me down. When I start feeling tightness in my shoulders and become […]

The Best Fish Sticks You’ll Ever Eat

The idea for turning this dinner into a recipe to share occurred to me the first time we made it for our son Zane, and my husband Ben told him they were the best fish sticks he would ever have. Although the same shape as the fish sticks we bake off in a pinch, especially […]
