Miso Sweet Potatoes with Tofu

I know it’s a little crazy but I actually have TWO recipes to share this week.  HOLD THE PRESSES.  I’m sharing the healthy one first because it seems like it’s been awhile since anything healthy has graced this blog. Other than the fact that I’ve actually been cooking things, […]

Laksa

I try to eat at least a couple servings of vegetables every day, and usually I have no problem doing that.  Saturday, however, I realized as I got into bed that the mushrooms in this soup were the only vegetable I had all day.  Oops. I guess that’s what […]

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 […]

Sesame Eggplant Stir Fry

So I’m running a marathon on Sunday,  my seventh!  I’m incredibly excited, even though I know there’s pretty much a 0.000032% chance that I’ll PR.  It’s okay, though.  I signed up way back in August when I had no idea what life with a baby would be like, and […]

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 […]

Coconut-Cilantro Quinoa Bowls

Welcome to the latest installment of “things to do when your due date is a week away with no baby in sight.” 1. Hit the gym. Be super tempted to stay on the elliptical until you go into labor. 2. Make bagels. Decide that while they’re pretty good, Peter Reinhart’s […]

South Indian Rice and Tofu Soup

This was originally a Jamie Oliver recipe for seafood and rice soup, using lots of spices and some coconut milk (but also seafood and white rice). Since I don’t eat seafood I added tofu, and I wanted brown rice instead of white. I also wanted to up the vegetable […]

Udon Soup with Vegetables and Tofu

A few weeks ago, I bought a book of knitting patterns for babies. I am a total novice knitter, so I wasn’t expecting to actually complete anything, but I’ve now made two hats! I was only planning on making 1, but the first one turned out to be kind […]

Pesto Barley Salad

This was the first weekend in months that did not include a run. I hoped this day wouldn’t come, but I think my running days are over for this pregnancy. The last few runs I went on were really uncomfortable, and my back ended up absolutely killing me. I […]

Eggplant and Tofu in Miso Sauce

I guess I should come clean, since Mike called me out in the comments of the last post, and publicly admit that I went to Bi-Rite Creamery twice in less than 24 hours (and for those keeping count, yes, that’s 4 scoops of ice cream in less than 24 […]
