Farro and Kale Salad with Pomegranate Vinaigrette

Hello foodies! It has been a LONG time since my last post - it feels good to be back! I’ve been busy in my dietetic internship on my way to becoming a Registered Dietitian (whoo!). I’ll officially be done at the end of March, which means more […]

Kale Flower Salad

“Flowers in a salad??” you might ask. These delicate, slightly sweet flowers add a pop of color and flavor to your hardy green salad. My kale plant has grown quite large in the past few years, but this is the first year that it has bloomed. […]

Scottish Oat Scones and a Pause

My Friday morning ritual involves a bitter cappuccino paired with a sweet and flaky Scottish oat scone. In my current work situation I do a lot of grocery shopping at my local food coop (PCC Natural Markets), so I like to treat myself on Friday mornings after my shopping. […]

Apple Pie with a Twist

Stir-Fried Zucchini with Farro

Sautéed Green Beans with Smoked Paprika and Almonds

It’s official, I’m obsessed with my America’s Test Kitchen Vegetarian cookbook. Every recipe so far has been a success. It’s been a while since my last post! I started a new job, which has been consuming my energy, but I think it’s time to get back to […]
