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

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 […]

I finally took the plunge and got a Vitamax, thanks to a great deal on QVC and credit card cash back. I’m so excited and for the 3 days I’ve owned it, I’ve used it at least once a day. So far I’ve just made juice, smoothies and fruit popsicles. I’m looking forward to doing […]

We are so excited to be able to offer more comprehensive menu planning tools and resources. Once we launch the new site, I will no longer be sharing my weekly menu plans here […]

Menu Plan Monday – August 11

Figs2014

We finally have figs! The harsh winter destroyed many a fig tree, but luckily mine survived. They are ripening much later than usual and I don’t have as many as previously, but that is okay. I’m just happy to have figs! Now to harvest them before the birds, deer and whatever other animal decides to […]
