Meal Plan / Week 30 October 2019

This week began and ended with muffins – Pumpkin Spice to kick off the week, and Pear Blackberry to end it! Both were amazing and I strongly recommend you give them a try. We also enjoyed large dinner salads, one vegan and the other topped with poached chicken. I also […]

 

Pear Blackberry Muffins

The batter recipe from “Run Fast. Cook Fast. Eat Slow.” is so versatile; after using it for the Pumpkin Spice Muffins, I decided to use it as a base for a new variety that leveraged pears, another wonderful fall fruit. I had a vision in my mind of how wonderful […]

 

Whipped Avocado Salad

I dreamt up this bright Whipped Avocado Salad on our flight home from Paris. It’s filling enough to serve as a weeknight family dinner – you can add grilled chicken breast or a warm soft-boiled egg if you’re looking for something a little heartier, but it’s not necessary.  

 

Pumpkin Spice Muffins

It’s October, and that means Pumpkin Spice everything! I was craving something sweet and spicy, and did a little happy dance when I saw a recipe for Pumpkin Spice Superhero Muffins in my favorite cookbook “Run Fast. Cook Fast. Eat Slow“. I made a few changes to keep these yummy […]

 

Meal Plan / Week 29 October 2019

We returned home from our once-in-a-lifetime 10 day vacation to France late in the week. We spent time in Paris and a small town a few hours southeast, walking an average of 9 miles per day. We ate nearly as much as we walked, including baguettes and other foods I […]

 

Vegan Enchiladas with Cashew Cheese Sauce

This recipe comes from “The Dairy-Free Kitchen” by Ashley Adams, a cookbook I adore because it reintroduced a whole lotta creamy, yummy favorites back into my diet (vegan cashew sour creme, maple walnut scones, and salmon in almond cream sauce, I’m talking ’bout you!) It’s really two recipes in one, […]

 

Savory Paleo Vegetable Quiche

We served this easy quiche for dinner alongside a fresh salad, but you could just as easily serve it for breakfast or lunch. You can change it up by mixing and matching any veggies that you have on hand – asparagus instead of broccoli, for example. We adapted this recipe […]

 

Stir-Fried Spicy Asparagus

We adapted this veggie side dish from a recipe by David Tanis in The New York Times, and in our humble opinions, it’s perfect. Simple, fast, and versatile – serve it with fish, pasta, rice, meat – we’re definitely making it again!  

 

Chicken Baked with Potatoes and Cherry Tomatoes

This recipe comes from Julia Moskin in The New York Times. It’s a simple meal, inspired by Italian techniques. I left the chicken to marinate while I prepped the potatoes. My teenager is responsible for washing the dishes after dinner; he was definitely psyched that this was a one-pot meal! […]
