Vibrant Winter Kale Salad

A few weeks ago my friend Kathy made an amazing winter salad for an event she was catering. Filled with good-for-you foods like kale, brussels sprouts, carrots and cabbage, after the munchkin and I finished our second plate of it I was like, Kathy, you have to share this recipe...

5 Star French Onion Soup (Stovetop or Slow Cooker)

When I made this soup on Sunday it was one of those chilly Vermont days where all we wanted to do was snuggle up inside and enjoy some quality time together as a family. So we lit the fireplace and I got this soup going on the stove top. It took 4 1/2 hours from start to finish,...

Maple-Glazed Tofu with Sticky Rice and Greens

Quick, easy and tasty, maple-glazed tofu is one of our favorite weeknight meals. Plus, the munchkin gobbles it up. (Always a good thing.)

Cider-Glazed Carrots

If you're looking for a healthy side dish to put on the table this week, these cider-glazed carrots might be for you. My son loves them and actually gets mad if he asks for seconds and there isn't more.

Savory Corn Cakes

Fluffy, slightly sweet and perfect for dipping, these savory corn cakes were just the thing for an impromptu game night meal. But they would be great for any meal really - breakfast, lunch, dinner, even snack time.
