Menu Plan Monday (November 26-December 2)

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving weekend! My Turkey Day meal went great  - a couple of minor glitches, but that’s par for the course for my first time cooking a big holiday meal.

In the meantime, I had lots of leftovers from Thanksgiving dinner – enough for meals Sunday night and tonight, and I still have more in the fridge. I had already pl… read more »

Baked Mac n Cheese Primavera {Recipe ReDux}

I’m interrupting the scheduled programming of Thanksgiving Day preparations to bring you this month’s Recipe ReDux.

But I’m excited to be running the show and I can’t wait to sit around the table with my family and expre… read more »

Spiced Pumpkin Bread {Recipe}

Get the essence of fall from this healthier pumpkin bread, spiced with cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger.  In eighth grade my classmates and I were allowed to take a cooking elective. This was long before I was interested in becoming a dietitian. I certainly never thought I would be a cookbook author and spending the majority of my time in the kitchen whipping up new recipes. I don’t remember most of what we made in that class, but I do have very vivid and fond memories of making pumpkin bread i… read more »
