Lemon Parsley Chicken

Of all the proteins I serve them, my kids enjoy chicken the least. My go-to quick meal often involves a rotisserie chicken from Whole Foods and the kids usually gripe and complain about it.  Same with my whole smoked chickens and baked chicken parts (which, incidentally are basted in duck fat* and I happen to think […]

Pesto Chicken Zusketti

You guys know I have three kids, and I have alluded to the fact that my two “bigs” are wildly different eaters.  My daughter, M, who is almost 5, despises anything creamy – hummus, guacamole, yogurt, nut butters.  As in, when my son eats yogurt she gets up from the table so she doesn’t have […]

Explore More : June 7th

Sorry about missing out on Explore More last week.  It was the last day of school for my kiddos and madness ensued. Have you read my post about Daphne’s Cafe and Market on Hilton Head Island?  It’s a Paleo / Primal eater’s vacation mecca … homemade bone broth, grassfed cream, and now she is brewing […]

Explore More – May 17th

April showers bring May flowers.  What do May flowers bring? The MAYpocalypse?  MAYhem?  End-of-School-a-palooza? Whatever term you use, you know what I mean. Spring sports are ending.  Dancers are recital-ing.  (In some cases night after night after night.)  School years are coming to a close and class parties, plays and other events come with the […]

As promised in yesterday’s post, here are Sarah’s gorgeous Whole 30 meals and goodies.  I know that she would be happy to reply to questions you have for her in the comments, so if you want to know something, ask away and she will either reply directly or in a future blog post. Moroccan Meatballs […]

My friend Sarah is an unabashed foodie.  A former colleague, she used to write a fabulous blog about food, restaurants, and entertaining and I loved, loved, loved reading it.  (Hint, hint, Sarah!) I left our mutual place of employment when my first child was born but thanks to social media, Sarah has remained in my […]

My son turned six this month and we hosted a super-fun birthday party for him and his friends.  Entertainer Tone Lane a/k/a “Mr. Tone” dazzled and amazed the kiddos. When you eat like we do, hosting friends and large events can be something of a challenge.  I want to be a gracious host and I […]

Explore More : April 21st

I’m going wild this week, bringing you Explore More on Sunday night instead of last Friday. (The hubby’s been traveling like a madman and I’ve been doing well to get my teeth brushed each day.) Apologies for the tardiness, but I had so much information that I knew I couldn’t skip a week! I’ve GOT […]

Turnips in Mustard Sauce

Really, I’ve been teasing these things for so long you’d think they were manna from heaven. I love, love, love turnips.  I love making Mark Bittman’s version of mustard glazed ones – with a few tweaks – when I have the time. Time is not a commodity I have a lot of right now, so […]
