Lentil Bolognese

This dish is a little nostalgic for me, but not in the way you’d expect.

Other than being a darn tasty meal, it has no personal significance aside from the fact that it’s the last recipe I have that hasn’t been shared on my blog yet that I made and photographed while Mike and I were still living in Kuwait. (We left there last summer, so that shows you how long I’ve had this recipe in my queue!)

Pina Colada Smoothie {Frozen Treat Week}

Pina Colada Smoothie1

The final treat I’m sharing in honor of Frozen Treat Week is a real doozy. In keeping with the other two healthy treats I’ve shared for this event (3-Minute Easy Cherry-Chocolate Sorbet and Almost-Instant Healthy Mint Chocolate Chip Soft Serve), today’s treat is equally healthy. And every bit as delicious. I’m not even kidding when I say that last summer I don’t think I touched a carton of ice cream once because of this smoothie. And that’s not to say that I didn’t crave ice cream....

Smoky Lentils with Pomegranate + Mint

In law school I had a friend who claimed that he had a real archenemy, superhero-style. As in, Batman vs. The Joker or Superman vs. Lex Luther. And he was serious. He said they’d glower at each other every time they had the misfortune of crossing each other’s path, each secretly plotting and scheming terrible things against the other. Not so much violent things, more like things to mind-manipulate or humiliate each other. Bizarre? Maybe. But I’ll admit that law school tends to foster a little bit of bizarre the way a hot day fosters the desire for a cold beverage. Perhaps par for the […]...

One of my favorite family traditions is every winter we snowbird down to Florida for a couple weeks of vacation. We are Disney fanatics, the whole lot of us (well, maybe aside from Mike, who claims that he goes for my sake…but when we’re there he seems to be enjoying the food and merriment for his own sake as well, lol), so the bulk of our time gets spent there. (Last year I posted about the afternoon tea we had at The Grand Floridian.) We have a few favorite places where we always eat in each Disney theme park; at Hollywood Studios one of our […]...

Two-Bean Vegetable Soup

We’ve all had days when there doesn’t seem to be enough time to do anything; the workout goes on hold, all thoughts of makeup fly out the window (ha — who am I kidding? This is almost every day for me!), and even eating gets back-burnered. The end of the day rolls around and there’s less than an hour until dinnertime; you’re famished and looking for some quick inspiration – here it is!...

Carrot Cake Oatmeal

Special days require cake for breakfast, like birthdays or holidays. Other days (you know those cold, dark, or stormy winter days), the allure of cake for breakfast is the only thing that will get you out of bed in the morning. Either way, cake for breakfast should be embraced instead of frowned upon. After all, cake can be healthy, right?...
