Hi friends, long time no talk!
I apologize for the radio silence on my end recently, but sometimes.. life happens. And well, life has definitely been happening lately. To say that this past month has been a whirlwind would be an understatement. Anddd it doesn’t appear to be slowing down any time soon.. by the time this post goes live, I’ll be en route to Chicago for the annual Food and Nutrition Conference & Expo (FNCE). I have been looking forward to this weekend ever since I last attended the conference 2 years ago (I had major FNCE fomo last year) and I can’t believe it’s finally (already!) here. I’m so excited to connect with fellow dietitians, catch up on the latest nutrition-related research, and feed my inner nutrition nerd – literally and figuratively. Fingers crossed that life slows down enough that I actually have time to sit down and share a recap of what I learn this weekend!
In the meantime, it’s back to regularly scheduled programming here on the blog.. and that means it’s time for another round of Recipe Redux. (more…)
This Sheet Pan Apple & Brie Stuffed Chicken is elegant enough for a special occasion, but easy enough to whip up for a no-fuss weeknight meal. Plus, it’s all cooked on one pan… meaning minimal clean-up required!
Life hacks are all the rage lately. And honestly, there’s never been a trend I could get behind more. After all, who isn’t looking for ways to save time, money (and their sanity) in today’s crazy hectic world? (more…)
This Roasted Autumn Harvest Salad is hearty enough to stand on its own, but also makes for a colorful side salad. Loaded with roasted delicata squash, beets and apples, it’s the perfect way to showcase flavorful fall produce!
What do you consider the “start” of winter?
I mean, I know technicallllly the calendar says that winter doesn’t start until December 21st, but let’s be real, does anyone actually go by that?
If not, where do we draw the line? Does “winter” start the first day of December? The day after Thanksgiving? The first snowfall? (That last one may be problematic for you Southern folk.. or those living in the unpredictable climate of Upstate New York) Winter in October? Yeah, no thanks. (more…)

If you know me at all, then you know that I have a major sweet tooth. I’m the girl that will leave part of her dinner untouched, and yet jump at the first mention of dessert. I like to think that I have a second stomach and it’s reserved exclusively for dessert.
That being said, It should come as no surprise that I was a fan of baking long before I was a fan of cooking. In fact, it wasn’t until a few years ago that I finally began to experiment with dishes that DIDN’T revolve around sugar. These days, I tend to spend more time cooking than baking (probably a good thing considering cupcakes are probably not the most nutritious dinner option), but you’d better believe I still take advantage of any opportunity to bake up some sweet treats.
