  • Brown Rice Vegetable Salad - half bowl

    Recipe: Vegetable and Brown Rice Salad with Honey Lemon Dressing

    This is the vegetarian side dish you’re always looking for when you’re hosting a crowd, or asked to bring something to a potluck.  Easy, healthy, flexible and PRETTY (use whatever vegetables, seasonings, and herbs you like).

  • queso corn dip with radishes

    Recipe: Hot Corn Queso Dip

    I’ve always loved the saying ‘everything in moderation, including moderation.” This is how I think about cooking and eating in general; I usually like to cook and eat pretty healthily, but sometimes I like to just roll around in cream and butter and cheese. And not low fat cheese, and I Can’t Believe It’s Butter.... MORE

  • an all orange school lunch

    Recipe: An All Orange School Lunch

    Bright and cheery, orange is a color that holds a host of possibilities when packing a school lunch. This one contains, cubed cheddar cheese, sauteed shrimp (I know, they are kind of pink, let’s just let that go), carrots, a peach, peach yogurt, and dried apricots. Click here to see the green lunch from last... MORE

  • zucchini ribbon salad

    Recipe: Zucchini Ribbon Salad

    I love tart, tart salads, the more vinegar or citrus the better.  My kids do, too; it’s not clear as to whether this is genetic, or environmental, but Jack has been known to just douse a plate of salad with vinegar at a salad bar, snub the olive oil, and I think if he were... MORE

  • bulgur wheat with zucchini and tomatoes

    Recipe: Tomato, Zucchini and Bulgur Salad

     This makes a very generous amount of salad, so it’s a good thought for potlucks, or just something to make at the start of the week and have ready to scoop out as a side dish or a ready-to-go lunch for the week.  I actually spend the week opening the fridge and eating two or... MORE

  • bowls of salmon corn chowder

    Recipe: Salmon Corn Chowder

    August came and went and I did not make corn chowder once.  Shame on me.  I made Tomato-Corn Relish, I made Tomato, Corn, Basil, and Mozzarella Pasta Salad, I made Fresh Corn and Bacon Cornbread, but I did not make corn chowder. So, over Labor Day weekend I slid one in under the wire.  This... MORE

  • an all green school lunch

    Recipe: Pick a Color, Any Color: An All Green School Lunch

    And as the summer comes to a close, and school approaches we parents experience that wave of mixed emotions that accompanies this moment in time. I probably don’t have to list all of the pros and cons for you.  You could probably list them right back at me.  And other than a few extremely special... MORE

  • bowl of gazpacho

    Recipe: Gazpacho

    A friend of mine ordered gazpacho in a restaurant recently, and could not stop talking about how good it was.  It had nuts in it, so I couldn’t try it, but she spend a significant amount of time saying, “Oh,I WISH you could try this, it’s SO good.”  And then I couldn’t stop thinking about...

  • Tomato Corn Relish

    Recipe: Summer Tomato-Corn Relish

    I am the hugest fan of a salsa or side dish of some sort that allow you to turn a simple piece of something into a meal.  Not only does this kind of magical recipe make a boneless skinless chicken breast or simply grilled steak into something you would feel okay about serving to guests,...
