If you follow this blog, you might have seen the most recent rendition of meatloaf that I posted in November: Turkey, Sweet Potato & Kale Loaf. The recipe was adapted from a meatloaf I had when I was in Chicago.
While I thought the meatloaf was delicious, my husband will not eat kale. This left me with an entire loaf to consume by myself. Because it was so good, this was not really a hardship, but I did find myself trying to come up with creative ways to serve it. Continue reading
Happy New Year!
Now that we have survived the holiday madness and settled back into life, it is time to get back to blogging. I wanted to share with you one of my go-to side dishes. I enjoy these year long, whether I am on the Whole30 challenge or not. Continue reading
About a year ago, I purchased the cookbook Gather: The Art of Paleo Entertaining. After completing the Whole-30 challenge, I became intrigued by the Paleo diet and started reading more about it. While shopping at Whole Foods, I came across this book. It has great photos, as well as several recipes I wanted to try. One was a recipe for orange scones that look delicious.
Summer is waning, but you can still find many wonderful fresh vegetables at your local farmers’ markets or produce stands. Earlier this month, when friends were coming over for dinner, I knew we would have grilled pork tenderloin medallions. The question was what to serve with them.

I have a number of friends who are gluten-free, in addition to a lot who practice a paleo-type diet. And so although many of my clients (and some of my friends) love the recipes I post for things such as coffee cake, scones, and cheese straws, I always feel challenged to come up with recipes to please my friends with special diets.
This is a recipe my mom first tried in late March 2013. It is from the December issue of Traditional Home magazine. My mother is good at saving recipes she wants to try and—better yet—she actually tries them. Sort of. Continue reading
One of my adventure buddies whom I have mentioned a few times, Carrie, loaned me a cookbook while I was training to run the Grand Canyon Rim2Rim2Rim (see details and a photo below). Carrie’s cookbook is called The Feed Zone, and it has lots of great recipes for endurance athletes. Continue reading
Earlier this year, I was looking for a healthy casserole recipe for a client when I came upon this one in Parade magazine (as well as on the online recipe site Epicurious.
Here’s a great salad recipe that pairs well with the Thai Chicken Meatballs I posted earlier this week. Continue reading
