In Season :: Shells & Brussels Sprouts

Jeanine here, and growing up, I was force-fed vegetables just as much as the next kid. Broccoli was at the top of my hate list, closely followed by mushy cooked carrots (which I still won’t eat to this day), but I never had to face brussels sprouts. My mom didn’t like them as a child, so she… read more

In Season :: Blood Orange & Bourbon

Does anyone else crave citrus in the winter like I do? Jeanine here, and I’ve been on a citrus kick for weeks now… first in salads, then main dishes and now, in perhaps my favorite food group of all, the cocktail. I just love how the blood oranges add natural sweetness, and also a pop of color. We drink… read more

In Season :: Citrus Cod en Papillote

Are you all ready to get crafty with your food? This one takes just a little bit of wrapping skills… but if I had to guess, I’d say that after the holidays you’re all DIY pros, so this should be a cinch! Jeanine here, and I just love this method of cooking fish — the result is… read more

In Season :: Curried Sweet Potato Soup

It’s true, we don’t have the harshest winters here in Austin, but the last few days have been rainy, grey and cold (cold for us anyway). Perfect soup weather in my book. I (Jeanine) made this a few nights ago and have been eating the leftovers ever since. When I think healthy comfort food, I almost… read more

In Season :: Sweet Potato & Pomegranate Salad

It’s the day after Christmas, and food is quite possibly the farthest thing from my mind. Among other holiday indulgences, I’ve eaten more cookies than I’d like to admit and I’m, well, full. But the holiday season is still a week from over, so I (Jeanine) think it’s the perfect time for a healthy reprieve…… read more

12 Tastes of Christmas :: Pistachio Truffles

I don’t know about you, but I (Jeanine) am not sure how the Christmas season snuck up so fast this year! Holiday parties are in full swing and I haven’t baked one cookie, shopped for one gift… and I have a tree somewhere in a storage unit (I’m allergic to the real thing). So, today, I have… read more

In Season :: Kale & White Bean Crostini

‘Tis the season for holiday parties to begin… I don’t know about you but I (Jeanine) am still pretty darn full from Thanksgiving. So today I thought I’d offer up a healthy holiday appetizer idea. Of course, healthy still has to taste really good, so here’s what I did to make these little bites delicious:… read more

In Season :: Poblano Cornbread Stuffing

I (Jeanine) come from a very traditional midwestern family where some Thanksgiving traditions are not to be messed with. I don’t know how some of these culinary delights came to be, but I’m sure many of you can relate… the infamous canned green bean casserole made with canned cream of mushroom soup and canned fried… read more

In Season :: Quinoa Stuffed Acorn Squash

Now that Halloween is over, the countdown to Thanksgiving has officially begun. For a lot of us, (myself, Jeanine, included) turkey day is no longer about the turkey. But I realize that for many, the idea of hosting a vegetarian or two at your holiday table is still a scary and stressful thought. The first… read more
