Udon with Peanut-Hoisin Sauce

I think I sometimes take for granted how great it is to have a happy, healthy kid. Ellie was a little bit sick a few days ago and it was pretty much the saddest thing ever. She only had a fever of 101 and it was very short-lived, but [...]

Avocado and Dill Pasta Salad

I have found the dish I want to bring to every potluck from now on. Except I don’t really go to potlucks. But if I did, I’d bring this always.  So full of vegetables, and the dressing is INSANE (in a good way). It has been one heck of a [...]

Soba Salad with Sesame-Miso Dressing

I really love soba noodles.  It all started with the recipe for Otsu in Super Natural Cooking, and grew from there into a mild obsession. I pretty much insist on eating them at least once a week, and I love the way they provide a pleasantly earthy backdrop for [...]

Broccoli White Cheddar Mac and Cheese

mac and cheese

I ran TWO DAYS in a row! Without screaming in pain, without making my hip worse, and without going crazy and pushing myself way too hard. I was signed up for a trail race in Pacifica on Saturday morning, and all week I was pretty sure it wasn’t going [...]

Tortellini Salad

I definitely made the most of this three day weekend. In addition to penguins, grocery shopping, and paper-grading, I got to go for an awesome 14 mile run to celebrate Aron’s birthday. It was the longest run I’ve done since Boston, and it felt fantastic. I also did a [...]

Mashed Potato Cakes with Broccoli and Shallots

I was planning on blogging a healthy dinner yesterday, but what I ended up making was kind of boring. There was nothing wrong with it…it just wasn’t exciting. I think lime juice and cilantro would have helped it tremendously, but I didn’t have either of those things in the [...]

Maple-Miso Tofu with Broccoli and Delicata Squash

This has been a pretty perfect week for running. There was that awesome 8K on Sunday, a beautiful morning run on Tuesday (where I took this picture)… and today Ellie and I conquered 9 miles (9:09 min/mile)! She was alert and smiling the whole time. I think she likes [...]

Broccoli Cheddar Pizza

This weekend included some pretty great things. Pizza (obviously). Lots of time with this guy. And this girl (even if she was asleep for a lot of it). Yogurt! We don’t have a decent yogurt place in our town, which is fantastic and terrible at the same time. Breakfast…made [...]

Nasi Goreng (Indonesian Fried Rice)

I really, really love Southeast Asia. I’ve been to Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, and Vietnam, and would happily go back, preferably for an extended period of time. I still haven’t been to Indonesia, but that doesn’t stop me from wanting to explore some of their food. I looked [...]

Almost-raw vegan creamy broccoli soup

I may have slightly over-indulged in home-made coleslaw and milk chocolate ice cream this weekend. I definitely do not subscribe to the “oh crap I ate so horribly I better go to the gym and work it all off” mentality (and Megan wrote a great post that explains exactly [...]
