Chick-chick-cauli-curry recipe, smart phone tip, spice fun and more…

When I’m thumbing through a magazine, I often see recipes I want to try, but don’t want to rip the page out (bad form at the doctor’s office). Also, I have stacks of those ripped out pages from random magazine (yes, that I purchased), and they get lost, crinkled, recycled. One of the easiest ways to get that recipe is to grab your phone and snap a pic. (Note, the photo is not for the recipe following…) Also, in the past I have bemoaned the fact that I basically only cook...

“You’re an important part of this family too”: a message for picky and “under” eaters

Posted by on May 8, 2012 in Blog Posts | 3 comments

We spent the weekend at an indoor water-park. My calves are still sore from climbing all those stairs up to the water-slide, and I only went about ten times. No idea how my kid went at least 75 times, and is just fine… Anyway, after a few days of eating out, I was feeling pretty blah, and just not hungry for breakfast yesterday. We eat almost every dinner, and most breakfasts together. I made some scrambled eggs for DH and DD, and sipped some coffee. M, now 6 1/2 asked what I was having....

Satisfied? Hunger? Appetite?

As I finished my lunch the other day, I realized when I work at home, lunch isn’t “over” until I’ve had a cup of coffee, and most days, a piece of chocolate with it.

logistics 2

My post about the difficulties of the logistics of family meals and feeding well got a lot of comments. Particularly as so much of the discussion and scolding parents get around feeding and “obesity” assumes so much:  about finances, access to transportation, a working and large enough fridge, cooking and reading skills. As I wrote, “It’s one thing to say, “eat 5 servings of organic, local fruits and veggies!” and, “get thee to a  farmer’s market!” But, the...

soul, food, and Heirloom Meals…

Posted by on Mar 28, 2012 in Blog Posts | 2 comments

I am coming down from a truly inspiring weekend with incredible people,  grateful I took the opportunity to fly across the country to be part of the Heirloom Meals Christmas Special. I knew it would be an amazing weekend when I was greeted with a water bottle, and shown the spring in the back of the property. Yes, fresh, clean, spring water, with Scottish Highland cows grazing, chickens making themselves heard, and daffodils dotting the fields as I looked out across the Berkshire...
