I love this salad. I love this salad. I love this salad. Should I say it one more time? I think so. I love this salad. All in all, this can be made in about 20 minutes (as long as you get the egg and the asparagus going at the same time), perfect for lunch […]

The sun came out this morning, bringing with it deep blue skies and promise of better weather to come. As cliche as it sounds, it was a sight for sore eyes …  Really, all I can think is thank goodness. The New England winter bought so much snow this year, and ice too. And the […]

The kids and I made a Mexican Chopped Salad today. It was awesome, and they gobbled it up. Actually, we gobbled it up. But what was more awesome was our conversation while we cooked. While making it, I made a last-second trade-out of an ingredient, substituting agave nectar for honey. Will immediately asked me why, […]

A few months ago, I read somewhere that basically Brussels sprouts are the new black. While I agree that they are absolutely, positively delectable … I think this highly underrated vegetable has been getting its long-awaited dues for awhile now.

I have a big confession to make: I’ve been eating daikon radishes for more than 10 years but only recently learned what this delicious, crunchy veggie was called.

I miss summertime. We’ve had a taste of warmer weather (notice I didn’t actually say warm) lately, and it was starting to spoil me.

What do you eat for lunch? People always talk about how important it is to have a good breakfast, but it’s also really important to have a good lunch — one that is filling, satisfying and healthy. For me, lunch is sometimes a sandwich or pasta, but more often it’s a salad. Salads served topped […]

A few weeks ago, I started thinking of fall flavors (seriously, when did seasons become flavors to me?). Apples, pumpkins, squash, Brussels sprouts … I started to scheme about how I could use them to create new dishes. The first thing that came to mind: Apple Cider Vinaigrette.

“What’s in this? This is interesting.” That was my husband’s reaction when he tasted the salad tonight. It was a simple mix of baby greens (one bag for $1 at the farmers market today — just enough for one dinner) and a homemade basil vinaigrette.
