A Day To Remember… And Celebrate.

Whether today is spent reflecting on the lives of loved ones lost in our military’s service or you are celebrating the unofficial kickoff of summer, today’s a huge day. When I contemplate Memorial Day, I think about all the people who didn’t make it back home. My 92-year-old father-in-law served in the Army and had…

Fresh From the Market Mushroom Soup

Too many hours working at a computer and the long commute has resulted in far more convenience foods than I want to admit. (Lots of curries over rice and sandwiches with gluten-free bread.) I’ve shared about how few vegetables are currently part of my diet in recent client conversations. Happily, Wednesday was the farmer’s market…

My Schedule Definitely Doesn’t Look Like Yours

Have you ever felt like “prescribed” fitness plans are designed to help you fail? While you can logically appreciate what they’re teaching, it doesn’t quite work with your own schedule. In my case, meal prepping is my MAJOR oddball! You see, many nutrition plans espouse the benefits of going shopping for groceries on Saturday or Sunday, then spending hours…

Pear-Date Chutney: sweet and spicy goodness.

Farmer’s Market Finds: Pear-Date Chutney Recipe

Yesterday afternoon, I took a trip to the Civic Center Farmer’s Market in San Francisco, eager to snap up some of the last minute finds before the vendors finished packing up and going home. True, if you get there within the last hour, the selection is much more limited. The upside? They frequently don’t want to…

Roasted celery root, parsnips and turnip with rosemary.

Roasted Celery Root, Parsnips and Turnips with Rosemary

One of my favorite things to do in a grocery store is to go over the produce section and experiment with something I’m not used to cooking. It’s EASY to stick with the same old staples: carrots, potatoes, celery… yawn. Turns out there are other root veggies that are easy to prepare! Yesterday’s grocery store finds led…

Pumpkin butter on toast.

Pumpkin Butter: A Sweet Finale

Happy Friday! At last, my pumpkin extravaganza is drawing to an end. How better to celebrate this event than with homemade pumpkin butter? Oh She Glows is a DELIGHTFUL vegan website I’ve utilised over the years. She had a pumpkin butter recipe I wanted to try my own take on. (See her version at her website…

Pumpkin and Kale Sauté.

Pumpkin and Kale Sauté

One would think I’d be getting tired of cooking and eating pumpkin this week. Fortunately for me that isn’t the case! I’d been excited about the idea of this sauté once I planned to do something other than cooking with puree. The recipe is a twist on a sweet potato dish from Sun Basket. Ingredients 1 small sugar…

Pumpkin curry soup with toasted pumpkin seeds.

Homemade Pumpkin Curry Soup

This week has been all about my affair with pumpkins. I’d rather eat them then carve them! Once I had the puree and seeds prepared, it was time to harness them for delicious eating enjoyment. I scoured the internet for recipes for pumpkin soup, ultimately devising my own take on a pumpkin curry soup. This recipe is…

Salted and curried pumpkin seeds.

Sure Fire Ways to Fall in Love with Pumpkin: Getting Seedy

Yesterday I posted how to make your own pumpkin puree, and was left with two cups of delicious seeds. I split them in half, wanting some plain salted seeds for garnish and another batch of seasoned seeds for snacking. The first half I allowed to dry before salting and roasting. Once dry, I tossed them with…
