Bento Box Black Bean Bowls

Among the many life lessons skiing taught me, two of the most important are the necessity of good nutrition for peak performance, and efficiency in movement (and time).  Law school has only reaffirmed these lessons.  I like to spend 2-3 hours on Sunday preparing food for the week, so that when the hanger strikes there…

Preparing for Semester Two (banana bread and bone broth)

Somewhere between surviving the first semester of law school, running a marathon, and trying to have some semblance of an outside “life,” I fell behind on my food blogging.  Which is terrible, for a couple reasons. I love food, I love sharing food, and having an outlet in the kitchen and sharing the results in…

Asian Inspired Meatballs

There are a lot of things I learned moving into a city apartment.  Some key takeaways: There is A LOT I took for granted at home.  For example one day a couple weeks ago I really needed to write something down, when it dawned on me that I had neither pen nor paper.  Same goes…

Green Bean and Pea Salad

While I (somewhat patiently) wait for both law school to start and my boyfriend to move to Boston, I’ve had a lot of time to (for lack of a better phrase) date myself.  I’ve never spent much time living alone–I’ve always been living with teammates or my family.  Consequently, I’ve never really gone on a…

Leftover Pasta Frittata

I read somewhere (I’m not sure where at this point as the number of cooking blogs I read and follow has gotten out of control) that ideal recipe planning revolves around three planned dinners a week.  Pick your favorite shopping day, and buy all the ingredients for three dinners (plus any miscellaneous breakfast items, ingredients…

Two Freezer Staples

And it is August!  This summer has absolutely flown by.  The past two weeks have been exceptionally busy moving to a new city and into a new apartment, as well as taking a breather weekend in Maine and the wedding of two dear friends near Hanover.  This week is shaping up to be a normal…

Sweet Potato Tacos

I love the idea of icebreakers.  You know, conversation starters at parties, casual networking events, first day of law school group sessions (!!) that are pretty lighthearted but at the same time tell you something significant about a new person.  Being a lover of all things food related, I recently came up with my new…

Uncluttered Banana Bread

Yesterday was an unfathomably warm day in Rapid City.  The thermometers went five degrees into the triple digits en route to setting a new record high temperature for June 14th.  As luck would have it, I also had 14 miles on my marathon training schedule for the day.  I had eight miles of marathon-goal pace…
