Plants-a-palooza has come and gone and now it’s time to reflect on lessons learned. Please chime in with your comments here, on Facebook or via Twitter. (And, yes, I have an affiliate link in here. If you buy, I benefit. You don’t pay more, though.) Lesson #1 – I don’t use herbs enough. Talk about low-hanging […]

I never publish blog posts on Sunday, but I’ve got too much going on this week to hold back tonight. Also, consider yourself informed that this post is full of advertising, although you won’t see any links until after midnight tonight. Here’s the exciting deal I’ve been waiting to share with you … It’s the […]

We spent last week in the South Carolina Lowcountry, just inland from Hilton Head Island. It’s a lovely spot to Spring Break, because along with all the tourist fun centered around Hilton Head and the beach, we get to experience the gorgeous May River and all the fun (i.e., food) that the lowcountry has to […]

I’m having a party, and you’re all invited! Get ready for Plants-a-palooza 2014! One of my personal goals is to increase the DIVERSITY of the plant material that I eat.

Incidentally, […]

Family “Feast”

Long ago, I wrote about one of my family’s favorite dinner rituals – Salad Night.  Another of our absolute favorites is something we call “Feast.” D and I started this tradition many, many years ago now.  We would usually shop together and just wander around the market selecting quick, easy, fresh, seasonal, eat-with-your-hands kinds of […]

Curried Celery Root Whip

Curried Celery Root Whip. Say that five times fast. I bought some celery root this weekend with the intention of mashing it and serving it with lamb chops.  I boiled the roots on Sunday in anticipation of serving them Monday, but when I pulled them off the stove, they just called to me and asked […]

If you read my Facebook posts, you may recall that my middle child’s pre-K class hosted a “Spring Fling” last week.  The organizer did a great job ensuring loads of delicious, enticing and healthful fare was served.  The Rudolphs were tasked with a veggie that starts with an ‘R’ and we opted for Romaine Boats.
