sweet chili green beans

Simple Sweet Chili Green Beans

We definitely get into veggie ruts in our house, and these green beans are a part of the rotation! They go with almost anything – this time we paired it with roasted salmon, but they’re great with Asian recipes. The kids won’t eat them, but I pick my battles – K’s happy with plain steamed broccoli […]

7 ingredient maple mustard stir-fry sauce

Maple Mustard Stir fry sauce

I find many western “Asian” recipes are really heavy on the soy sauce – every dish at PF Chang’s tastes overpoweringly like Kikkoman soy sauce to me. So when recipes call for soy sauce, I cut it in half and I’ve done that here. I have Bragg’s Liquid Aminos on hand as my current soy […]

Kale and Collard Chips

Whereas with Zane we loosely followed a combination of purees and baby led weaning, Ruby refused to eat anything off a […]

Whole wheat Coco-choco-nana chip cookies

7 ingredient slow cooker orange chicken drumsticks

Now that I’m back at work, I’m trying to use the slow cooker more. My daughter can have something wholesome for dinner, and I have something piping hot and ready to eat when I come home, not to mention leftovers for a few more days. I’ve really enjoyed the recipes in Julie Kaufmann’s book, Not […]


Gingered Carrot Oatmeal Cookies

Here is my adaptation of Heidi Swanson’s Carrot Oatmeal Cookies. Whole wheat pastry flour, coconut oil instead of butter, oats, and carrots? Dare I say it, a “healthy” cookie (at least as far as cookies go). They were sweeter than I would have expected from a cookie that involved carrots. I added flaked coconut, candied ginger, and hazelnuts […]


Garlic-Pepper Grilled Chicken & Roasted Veggies

This is a pretty typical meal in our house, which I’ve modified to make Whole30 compatible. Although there’s some prep work, it’s just cutting veggies and marinating the chicken – the last steps are super easy and can be done quickly in the evening rush. I used to marinate my grilled chicken in store-bought caesar dressing, but […]
