The Starter Fish: Easy Battered Cod

The Starter Fish: Easy Battered Cod

| February 24, 2009 | 6 Comments

What is it with all of the food allergies and sensitivities in the world today? Back in my day, peanut butter and jelly was a mainstay on the cafeteria menu and no one thought twice about serving fish (at least in the stick form) to kids. Things were just different. These days though, as a […]

In my single days, a mainstay of my cooking was stir fry. It is just so easy. Chop up a few veggies, toss it in a pan with a little oil and stir, stir, stir until the vegetables are done, then add sauce and serve over rice. If you are feeling particularly ambitious, you might […]

Easy Homemade Macaroni and Cheese

As my friends can attest, there was a time in my life where I could down a whole box of macaroni and cheese. In the days before organic, eating local and slow food became buzz words, I was all about the quick, easy and accessible. That was also before I (and most people) ever laid […]

Young Children in the Kitchen

Young Children in the Kitchen

Ever since Will was just a tiny baby, I wanted him to be involved in the kitchen. But when I cook, it’s over heated burners and in hot ovens. And prep-work often involves razor sharp knives, so it’s not always that safe. That’s why involving young kids in the kitchen is an outside of the […]

Basic Beef for Bolognese, Calzones, Shepherd’s Pie and More

I love – LOVE – the ease of food that can do double duty. For instance, a roasted chicken like the one mentioned on the Everyday Food blog today can be Sunday dinner, Monday chicken tacos, Tuesday chicken and rice and Wednesday chicken salad. Talk about a blessing for a busy, harried mom — or […]

Toddler Bites: More Than Mac and Cheese

Toddler Bites: More Than Mac and Cheese

| January 19, 2008 | 3 Comments

I admit that my son at two and a half doesn’t eat like many other kids. His diet isn’t limited to nugget-y things and mac and cheese. Although he does enjoy those things, they aren’t staples. He happily munches on Brussels sprouts (particularly my pancetta and basil Brussels sprouts), fish of all kinds, and anything […]

Kid Approved: Garlic Tomato Spaghetti Squash

The first, and only, time I had spaghetti squash was years ago in college. While studying at the Biosphere 2, I was invited to a dinner at another girl’s apartment. Spaghetti squash with a tomato sauce was one of the meals she served. I remember being apprehensive, but trying it. I was shocked. It really […]

McDonald’s Corp. is taking a new tactic to try and make people feel okay about eating their food and feeding it to their children. They are letting six women — all mothers — visit restaurants, processing plants, test kitchens and orchards. Then the women are going to journal, not blog because there will be no […]

Did you know that the typical ice cube tray holds about one ounce of food? Or that one pear makes roughly four ounces of pureed food? You wouldn’t believe all the baby food tidbits I could spew at you these days. When I was pregnant with my son I heard about homemade baby food and […]

Washing Vegetables and Fruits to Remove Pesticides

Washing Vegetables and Fruits to Remove Pesticides

| January 24, 2006 | 1 Comment

I never thought about pesticide residue that could be on my produce before I had Will. And while I thought it was odd that apples in the store were so shiny and glossy, and broccoli had that white patina, I just didn’t put one and one together. But while I was pregnant I began learning […]
