When I was a freshman in college I had the unusual privilege, at the age of 18, to move in to an apartment with some friends during my second semester (it was no easy battle to convince my parents of the necessity of this move at the time, let me tell you).  It was in […]

{recipe} Curried Carrot Spread

Once the holidays (and all the parties and food that go along with them) are over, I always end up craving veggies and lighter foods. My body is so overloaded with decadent goodies and desserts, it’s as if I need to go in the total opposite direction to balance everything out. One food that I […]

{New Year} Gonna Get Vegetable Crazy!

Okay, so I’ll be honest.  I’m really not into resolutions.  I’ve talked about this with some of my family and friends and they know that I am not a fan.  I really feel like New Years resolutions are promises that people make to themselves and then quickly break.  And it’s okay, why not let yourself […]

{Side Dish} under 90 calories!

I have to admit, I do watch calories and portion size.  Something my husband and I learned and worked at for over a year and half now. Combined we lost over 100 pounds and have successfully kept that weight off.  So…this is one of our favorites.  A huge portion for about 85 calories (a good cup […]

Once the weather gets cool, all I want is to cook and eat soup. A bowl of soup with some homemade bread and butter, maybe a little salad…this is absolutely the perfect lunch. Or dinner. Or snack.  :)  Soup just may be the perfect meal. This recipe (originally passed on to me from my sister, […]

Lazy Chef’s Lentil Soup

On many a cold, dreary day, I have found myself looking for a can of prepared lentil soup in my kitchen cabinets. Fortunately, since I seldom think to buy it when I’m at the grocery store, it’s usually not stocked in my home and I am forced to make a much healthier version from scratch.  […]

Beet Hummus

Alright, I’ll admit it, I am very new to the world of beets.  They are not something that I’ve purchase before because my husband hates them.  In our CSA share from Denison Farm we’ve received beets several times.  Just about every time that we’ve gotten them I’ve blanched and frozen them for later use.  I […]
