Savory Fall Oatmeal

While doughnuts will be my perennial breakfast of choice, I normally don’t crave something sweet in the morning.  Sure I’ll have a drizzle of maple syrup or some honey spread on toast, but typically savory dominates my morning meal.  My go-to breakfast is some rendition of eggs and toast.  I’ll add avocado, swap in some…

Healthy (ish) Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

In a never ending quest to match my love of high quality baked goods with my love/need for top notch nutrition, I’ve done a lot of research and trial and error to figure out ways to lessen the amount of sugar I mix into a batch of anything.  The problem is often replicating the same…

Tahini Zoodles

When training starts to consume more and more of the day (whether that be an increase in hours spent actually training, or the corresponding increase in sleeping hours required), I am all about finding some go-to sauces that pair with most any base.  Be it drizzled on top of avocado toast (yes, I fully embrace this…

Molasses Granola

I am honestly not sure whether this is a memory I have of my childhood, a memory I have of my brother’s childhood that I’ve transposed onto my own, or if I’ve completely made it up.  But it’s a wonderful memory in any case.  Back in kindergarten, every kid’s parents would come in one day…

Maple Thyme Chicken

If you’ve ever read this blog carefully or talked to me personally, you know how much I loathe a dry, unseasoned, non-marinated chicken breast.  The same way I personally feel about yogurt- why would you go back to the zero percent fat once you’ve had the whole fat- once you’ve had really good roasted chicken,…

Gruyere-Olive Quick Bread

I’ve recently had my culinary world rocked.  After fighting some nasty patches on my hands all winter long (which I thought were just dry patches), I discovered this spring that in fact I have Atopic Dermatitis, which is an autoimmune condition that is for simplicity sake a fancy way of saying eczema.  After doing lots…

Strawberry Spelt Doughnuts

It seems like there is a national holiday for quite literally everything.  So normally I just skip most of the food related holidays, because you’d find yourself fairly limited in what you could eat each and every day.  The days range from National Chicken Cacciatore Day (October 15th) to National Artichoke Hearts Day (March 16th) to…

Cabbage Salad

Ah, Memorial Day- the unofficial kick off to the summer potluck season.  I love potlucks, but sometimes THEY ARE STRESSFUL.  I’m always nervous that my dish is going to be a flop.  Or that I won’t make enough of it.  Or it is going to give everyone food poisoning.  And because I often frequent potlucks…
