Sauce in a Snap

 April 2, 2014

I bet if you open your pantry, somewhere on one of your shelves is a box of pasta and a jar of marinara sauce. This quick-fix dinner staple seems to find its place in most homes across America. And why not?Well, put down the...

The Traveler’s Savior

 March 19, 2014

I need to take a second to brag...I was lucky enough to spend this past weekend under the Florida sun! I know you're jealous. Warm sun kissing your body while waves splashed at your feet sounds like nirvana (and it was!) However, before you get too envious of my...

Healthier St. Patrick’s Day Fare

 March 5, 2014

St. Patrick's Day is quickly approaching. When I was younger, this cultural holiday always made me wish I was Irish, and back in my elementary school days I may have even fibbed about my family's heritage! Thank goodness for my patient parents who embraced this...

Turning Leftover Rice into a Tasty Treat

 February 19, 2014

I rarely order takeout, but working three, 12-hour shifts in a row in the middle of an ice storm seemed to warrant a break from my kitchen duty. I decided to rely on some fresh Cantonese-style takeout for dinner on the last night of my 36-hour stretch.

Pot Roast, Skinny Shoreline Chef-Style

 February 5, 2014

Over the past month this bone-chilling weather has earned many names: the Polar Vortex, the Deep Freeze, and, my personal favorite, the Arctic Assault. No matter how you choose to refer to what feels like a giant snowball attack on our country, the general...

The Lazy Girl’s Soup

 January 22, 2014

The laziness bug has struck my apartment. Maybe it's because I'm working a bit more and sleeping a lot less, or perhaps this chilly, damp weather has been to blame. Regardless of the cause, I've been spending less time in the kitchen and more time lounging in my...

A Tasty Tradition

 December 25, 2013

The time between Thanksgiving and New Year's Day might be the most traditional time of the year. From family favorites on the Thanksgiving table to new, matching pajamas on Christmas Eve to ringing in the New Year with the same family and friends, the traditions...

A Healthy Holiday Favorite

 December 11, 2013

It's that magical time of year, when sleigh bells ring, the scent of fresh pine fills the air, and, for most of us, the numbers on the scale begin to creep higher and higher. With plates laced in chocolate decadence, velvety egg nog, and buttery baked goods to...

In Praise of Brussels Sprouts

 November 27, 2013

Brussels sprouts may be one of the most poorly represented foods. Yes, when simply boiled, the cabbage's cousin can be bitter, bland, and often gag-worthy. However, when this vegetable is joined with the bold flavors of smoky bacon, crunchy walnuts, and tangy...

A Signature Fall Salad

 November 13, 2013

I've never been one for salads. The only time I'm a picky eater is when a giant plate of raw greens is placed in front of me. Too much dressing and you end up with a soggy mess, too much lettuce and you can count on a grumbling belly 30 minutes later. And as the...

A Bowl of Soothing Comfort

 November 6, 2013

The horrible has happened: I have been hit with the first cold of the season. Even as a nurse who's equipped with a mile-long list of any solution for just about any medical problem, I've found that there's no better cure for the common cold than a steaming bowl...
