Menu Plan Monday – December 8

Elsa.DekalbFarmersMarket.

I’m back from another break from menu planning. We spent Thanksgiving week at Disney World and had a wonderful time. Of course C and E had a blast. I was happy to get home though and cook my own meals. While we did find plenty of relatively healthy food there and ate at some surprisingly good restaurants, […]

Recipe Redux – Potato Rolls

Family Recipe for Potato Rolls with a healthy makeover

This month’s Recipe Redux theme, in honor of Thanksgiving, is a food memory for which we are thankful and then a healthy “redo” of that recipe. This was pretty easy for me to come up with an idea as one memory and food jumps out at me this time of year. My family has always made potato rolls […]

Menu Plan Monday – November 17

Apple Peeling, Coring and Slicing Gadget

And we are already half-way through November! I’ve been remiss again on posting my menu plans. I’ve had a loose plan in my head the past few weeks, but jam-packed weekend activities, time with family, and lots of work testing out recipes for My Menutrition have put my blogging on the back burner a bit along […]

Menu Plan Monday – October 27

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

I’m back! It has been a long time since I’ve posted my weekly menu plans. For a variety of reasons, I took a break for a bit. I traveled quite a bit during September (Blog Brûlée and fabulous Welch’s trip I’ll be writing about soon) and October (girls weekend, Food and Nutrition Conference & Expo), which […]

Blog Brûlée Recap

Pumpkins and fall at boyden winery

My attendance at Blog Brûlée was partially funded by the Sponsors of the event. I was not compensated to write this post. It is hard to believe that a whole month has passed since I had the privilege of attending the first Blog Brûlée in Vermont. It was an amazing weekend with a group of inspiring dietitians and […]

Butternut Squash and Kale Stuffed Shells

Butternut Squash and Kale Stuffed Shells

By posting this recipe I am entering a recipe contest sponsored by the National Pasta Association and I am eligible to win prizes associated with the contest. I was not compensated for my time.  There are many things to love about October such as pumpkins, leaves turning colors and pasta. Yes, pasta. After all, October […]

Facing Food Fears

Facing Food Fears

I am a consultant to various food and beverage companies, including the Corn Refiners Association, though all thoughts and opinions are my own.  Fear is persuasive, it sells. It seems everywhere we look there is another sensational headline warning consumers of the dangers of a particular food or ingredient. Food is an emotional and often passionate topic, and […]

Recipe Redux – Oven Dried Grape Tomatoes

Oven Dried Grape Tomatoes

This month’s Recipe Redux theme is “Get Your Dehydrator On” to show how you can preserve the season’s best produce for later. I don’t own a dehydrator, but a low, slow oven as well as time can turn out the same results. We are at the end of tomato season, so it is the perfect time […]

Days Away From Blog Brûlée

My attendance at the Blog Brûlée is partially funded by Sponsors of the Blog Brûlée, and I received a discounted registration to the event in exchange for writing this post. Opinions expressed are my own. I was not compensated for my time. In just a few short days, I will be heading to Vermont to attend […]

Summer is officially over though the weather here in Georgia usually has other plans for keeping summer around a while […]
