One Pot Chicken Sausage and Spinach Bowtie Pasta

“Read 1000 books before Kindergarten!” says a small sign at our local library highlighting a program encouraging early literacy. YES! We are in! I grabbed a bag and examined the rules. They allow for flexibility saying that its ok to re-read books or track discrete books, whatever works for you. All they ask is that […]

Salsa and Spinach Egg Muffins

100 years ago, here in my hometown of Boston, Massachusetts, there was a tank explosion which sent a 15 foot wave of molasses careening into the city at 50 feet per second.  The North End, which is now filled with cannolis and restaurants making fresh pasta, was shut down for weeks after the flood killed […]

Steak Cobb Salad with Quinoa

2019 is back in action and this year will be a year of slowing down, noticing and celebrating small joys, and of course adding new recipes into the portfolio!

Spinach Squares

“Don’t wait for perfect conditions to move forward.”   Laying on my yoga mat last night my teacher began class with these words.

(Can you tell we are in summer mode over […]

Cauliflower Topped Shepard’s Pie

Happy Pi Day! In honor of this amazing nerdy holiday (and St. Patricks day right around the corner) I’ve made a healthy shepherd’s pie that uses cauliflower instead of potatoes and is filled with beef and lentils.  I first made this beef and lentil shepherd’s pie with the traditional potato topping and it quickly became […]

Sweet Potato, Spinach, Sausage, and Shallot Egg Muffins

“You don’t need fixing – you are perfect just the way you are!”-  Adriene Mishler January 1st has arrived and I’m ready to close the door on 2017 and enter 2018 with an open mind. This will be my third year kicking off the year with a 30 days of yoga series put out by […]

Coconut Curried Chicken with Veggies

Me: “Hey what are you making for dinner tonight?” Ellen: “Coconut chicken curry” Me: “Oh wow! I’m so impressed… that’s out of my league.” Ellen: “Uh, are you sure? All you really do is pour and stir… which I know you are capable of.” For some reason I’ve had a mental block around cooking with […]
