Radish & Baby Kale Farro Salad

We're winding down from a fun and somewhat crazy summer over here.  Lots of visits with friends, backyard barbecues, patio parties, and as usual, THE BEST, apple cider doughnuts around (Thanks, Chichester General Store in Chichester, NH!). You guys, there were even chocolate chip pancakes as big as our faces! So, as we gear up … Continue reading Radish & Baby Kale Farro Salad

Quinoa Tabbouleh

I discovered my love for tabbouleh when we were living back in Brooklyn, and I had unlimited access to some of the very best Middle Eastern food around.  Two of my favorite local spots made versions of it that I loved- one made it with more parsley than bulgher wheat while the other was heavier … Continue reading Quinoa Tabbouleh

Tomato and Olive Farro Salad

One of the biggest perks of living in our town is the beautiful community pool.  When we lived in Brooklyn, summers were really challenging: It would be 95 degrees, and I'd drag both twins and all their gear and snacks in a stroller to the local public park sprinklers, often only to find whoever was … Continue reading Tomato and Olive Farro Salad

Grilled Lemon Garlic Shrimp Skewers & Spinach Pesto Pasta

I love being a member of our local CSA.  It provides the freshest local produce, and it forces me to get inventive with the ingredients because, well, there is only so much kale salad a person wants to eat (or at least, that my husband wants to eat).  Spinach is an early, recurring item in … Continue reading Grilled Lemon Garlic Shrimp Skewers & Spinach Pesto Pasta

Southwestern Quinoa Bowls With Grilled Vegetables

I am pretty darn lucky in the friend department.  Wherever I have lived, I've managed to score the nicest mom friends.  The kind of friends who will bring one of your kids to school so that the other sick kid doesn't have to get dragged out of the house.  The kind of friends who will … Continue reading Southwestern Quinoa Bowls With Grilled Vegetables

Sesame Marinated Chicken Thighs & Sesame Noodles

I don't know how you do it.  You moms out there with multiple children enrolled in multiple sports that have multiple practices and multiple games every week.  Amazing.  My hat is off to you.  Me? My kids can each pick one or two activities that each require one time slot per week.  And, quite frankly, … Continue reading Sesame Marinated Chicken Thighs & Sesame Noodles

Roasted Carrot Soup

I'm a soup kinda gal.  When people ask how I stay fit for running, I tell them that my summer/spring salad lunches and my autumn/winter soup lunches are partly my secret.  In the summer months, I make mason jar salads with layers of veggies, beans, and grains.  I can pop them in the fridge on … Continue reading Roasted Carrot Soup
