Happy Thursday, everyone! Amazingly, this is the very last morning of my current clinical rotation. Putting aside the overall challenges of the DI itself—new schedule, lots of oversight, lack of privacy—my seven weeks at this site have been a wonderful learning experience, with supportive and caring dietitians as teachers. I’m still struggling to wrap my…

I’m almost embarrassed to admit how often, when I’m midway through making a recipe, I need to do a little Googling in order to confirm that I know what the recipe is actually supposed to be. What can I say: no matter how much I cook, I’m always a student in the kitchen. Anyway, that’s…

When I went to Prague last summer, I brought reading material that consisted almost entirely of food writing. One of the books was Molly Wizenberg’s A Homemade Life, in which she describes, among other things, the role that food played in her courtship with her former partner, Brandon. There are many sweet anecdotes about intimacy…

It’s no secret that baked oatmeal is one of my favorite, make-ahead breakfast options. I love warm oats, and for most of the last few years it’s been no trouble to cook them on the stovetop, traditionally. When I’m rushing out the door, though—and lately, that’s how mornings seem to go—simmering even rolled oats can…

I’ve been all about batch cooking lately, for obvious reasons: new schedule, the organized, back-to-school September energy, minimal fondness of weeknight cooking. But no amount of meal prep dims the pleasure of throwing together something spontaneous and surprisingly good. That’s how this dish of coconut brown rice, black beans & sweet potato with cilantro cashew…

This low-key curried quinoa lunch salad isn’t new.
