I would make a wretched vegetarian, but I’m cooking/preparing food for a client doing the Standard Process Cleanse this month. The general idea of this cleanse is consuming all vegetables (at least 1/2 consumed raw) and fresh fruits with a few allowances for small servings of psuedo-grains (lentils or quinoa only), scant amounts of healthy […]

This shredded chicken recipe may be the easiest recipe I make.  It makes a great filling for a taco bar, topping for salads, nachos, enchiladas, quesadillas, or appetizers.  You can cook it as written below as dinner for your family or scale it to serve large parties.  The simplicity does not equal the resulting flavor.

Spanish rice is that loose term for any rice dish that is sort of red and is typically served alongside Mexican food.  My college friend, Marti, used to get giant casseroles of Spanish Rice from her childhood nanny which fed people for days.  Locha’s rice was legendary.  Or maybe we were just hungry and almost […]

Baby Bok Choy is my favorite new vegetable.  They are so adorably cute, delicious, fast, and easy!  I think the flavor is a little like softened celery – very, very mild.  Baby Bok Choy is very low calorie, and packed in Vitamins A, C, and K.  Nutrient dense and prepared completely in 10 minutes. Baby […]

My kids love Chicken Clagiving night.  That’s what they named our version of not Thanksgiving – with Roasted Chicken, Gravy, Homemade Stuffing, and Mashed Potatoes.  The key to stuffing (or croutons if you’re making those), is to have your bread thoroughly dried out.  This is almost never a problem for me since I’m inclined to buy […]

Winter is here, and with it comes my favorite, soup season.  Second only to cooking with cognac season.  The best soups start with bones, so as  you bake those holiday hams, chickens, and turkeys – be planning your best soups yet!  Beans are another food group I didn’t consume until at least 25, so in […]

This grilled chicken salad was inspired by my favorite salad at La Duni Restaurant, the Pollo Asado a la Menta Limon.  I forgot about the onions on the side and the guacamole, both of which are superb additions.  I think La Duni puts the mint in the salad dressing, but I minced it and mixed […]

No picture sadly, but I’ve missed writing recipes.  I have a backlog of photos without recipes written down and recipes without photos.  At this point I find I’m killing myself with wasted time, trying to remember how I came up with that delicious dish 3 months ago.  So while it may not be pretty, the […]

If you are suffering from boredom and inertia in your weekday meals, I have found the perfect recipe for you to add into your repertoire.  Since the arrival of our third child, sweet Baby Hiatt, my time in the kitchen has been fractioned.  I see glimpses of the future where I will gain a little […]

To combat the inertia threatening to lock me in a culinary bell jar, I’ve been rereading an old stack of the now defunct Gourmet Magazine.  Looking for a flavor, an ingredient, a style I’d forgotten about, anything really.  I stumbled across a 2008 recipe for cumin-scented stir fried beef with celery.  The recipe looked intriguing […]
