African Peanut Stew/Soup, chicken recipes, and menu plan

Posted by on Oct 21, 2013 in Blog Posts |

I roasted these two ladies yesterday and have dinner planned for the rest of the week.  (Easy roasted chicken recipe.) This is a slightly more ambitious meal plan than usual. Chickens? Same time/same oven, the one on the left had crispier skin, and overcooked legs (I’m too lazy to truss properly.) I will use the chicken for the soup and enchilada casserole (making two, one for a friend.) I love the casseroles that have all the veggies in them (beans/onions for enchilada, and...

Heavy-duty foil saves clean-up time, and green bean recipe!

Posted by on Jun 4, 2013 in Blog Posts | 5 comments

I finally made green beans a different way than the usual standby of simmering in broth with a little butter and salt. Husband and I used to eat green beans like this often, but they can be stringy, so when I started cooking and considering the oral skills of a little one, I switched to the softer boiled/steamed beans and kind of got stuck— but stuck in a good way since we all loved them anyway. Roasted garlic/ginger/sesame green beans   Print Prep time 10 mins Cook time 20...

Can I know what and how much you should eat, better than your body does?

After years of serving family style (serving bowls in the middle of the table, and allowing family members to serve themselves)  I recently had to pre plate dinner for my family. I roasted a chicken  and made green beans and Alexia brand oven fries. We wanted to eat outside, and it was getting late and I didn’t want to drag everything outside in bowls and pots. Just wanted three plates. Here’s the thing. It felt weird, and off, and I didn’t like it. How could I know how...

building on what your child already likes, bridges for picky eaters

Posted by on Mar 19, 2013 in Blog Posts | 4 comments

I talk to parents about this all the time, but had my own recent reminder… If your child likes a food, find something similar to offer. If it’s a flavor, a sauce, or a food prep technique, be mindful of using or including that familiar characteristic, making that link to new foods… (This notion of “chaining” or “bridging” similar tastes is common in the selective eating and sensory world.) Don’t forget that all the bridging won’t work if you...

cheese that stands, doing things differently from our moms, keeping it real…

Posted by on Dec 13, 2012 in Blog Posts | 1 comment

I wasn’t sure what to make of the new packaging with the shredded cheese that stands on it’s own until Taco Night, when I was happy not to have one more bowl to wash… Turns out I like the cheese that stands alone… Which made me think about how much I love our informal meals, and how I will take anything that helps me get meals on the table. (Within reason. I have yet to find a steam-in-the-bag veggie that seems as good as prepping it myself. But that line is different...
