A New Year and National Honey Month

It’s been quite some time since I have updated Nutritioulicious with a new post – my apologies for the delay. It’s not for lack of what to write – I have a backlog of recipes, food news, and interesting topics to write about. Unfortunately time has been what’s missing these days. Charlotte and Sabrina are now 8 1/2 months old and we just moved into a new house in a new neighborhood. And today is Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year! Talk about good timing! Rosh Hashana marks t… read more »

Walk It Off

The following is a guest post by Robert Inderwies, certified personal trainer for Energetic Juniors. If you’re trying to lose some weight, the thought of being in a gym for a lengthy period of time can be like weight loss kryptonite. Why not be kind to yourself and simply start walking?

Kids Love Watermelon

I’ve mentioned before that I love watermelon - it’s definitely a summertime favorite. So last weekend when my sister brought a baby watermelon from the Union Square Greenmarket, I was really excited.

We showed Oliver the baby watermelon and asked him if he knew… read more »

Iced Orange-Cranberry Biscotti {Recipe}

A few weeks ago I told you about the delicious anniversary dinner I made for my husband. Included, was a special treat – I baked! I was inspired by fellow registered dietitian and Recipe ReDuxer (and co-creator) Deanna Segrave-Daly‘s June ReDux recipe, Iced Lemon Biscotti Bites. I rarely bake, but Deanna’s recipe didn’t seem too difficult and I had all of the ingredients on hand, so I figured I’d give it a shot. In typical fashion, I couldn’t leave well-enoug… read more »

Mushroom Tartlets Made with Love

A few weeks ago, my husband and I celebrated our third anniversary. There was a lot to celebrate this year – the birth of our twin girls, the building of a new house (yes, we’re moving, but not too far from the city!), and of course the love we have for each other. In honor of such a special occasion I decided not only to cook dinner, but also to bake a sweet treat, something I rarely do.  While packing up my cookbooks, I found a recipe for Upside-Down Mushroom Tartlets that I had cut out a few years… read more »
