We’re in the middle of mega festivities with Passover, Easter, and Earth Day all in the span of a week… Passover was a hit. With our daughter leading the Seder, I had flashbacks to my childhood. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Ahem. Now we’re gearing up for a low-key, non-plastic Easter, which […]
In our quest to economize we’ve been making an effort to meal plan. I like the idea of using everything in our fridge (sending less to the compost bin) and reducing the amount of time we spend each day trying to figure out what to cook. (Every minute counts in our busy lives!) Week one […]

The grown-ups in our house can’t get enough of this kale salad. My little helper and I have been making a giant batch each week. David and I gobble it up and feel incredible the next day. This salad is pure, raw brain food. Now if only we could get our three-year old to try […]

Cooking up a batch of cottage cheese apple pancakes (recipe from Mollie Katzen’s Moosewood Cookbook). Much more healthy than regular pancakes and such fun to make together.
