Who else wants to dive right into this bowl of vegan cauliflower mac and cheese?!

And it’s made with an easy, thick and velvety vegan cauliflower cheese sauce poured […]

3 Easy Back-To-School Lunch Ideas

It seems like every parent I know (myself included) is frequently stumped over what to put in their kids’ school lunch box. It’s a balancing act between making lunch nutritious and interesting, while still packing items your kids will actually eat. Since Phoebe’s first day of school is today, I thought it would be perfect timing to […]

Halloween Monster Cupcakes

This morning as we took the kids on a walk around the neighborhood, we spotted the first few houses all decked out with giant spiderwebs, ghosts hanging from trees, and witches guarding front doors on their broomsticks. It definitely made me start getting in the spirit of things — which is perfect timing since today’s […]

Guacamole-in-a-Bag: The After-School Snack That You’ll Love Too

In case you’ve been living under a rock, school is officially in session! And whether you have kids or not, ’tis the season for simple healthy snacks that will give you (and your dependents) the energy to go from work or school to whatever activities the evening may hold. We loved partnering with Patricia’s Table […]

Easter Brunch Fruit Smoothies

We had the BEST time cooking up Easter treats with our favorite little sous chefs at Patricia’s Table earlier this month (did you catch these Easter Egg Pancakes?) I had to share the adorable and completely delish fruit smoothies that we mixed up with the kids. Patricia, the owner of our favorite kids’ cooking school, says […]

Easter Egg Pancakes

Lately I’ve started letting Phoebe “help out” in the kitchen: she was my devoted sous chef on last weekend’s pizza dough, and she singlehandedly added all the ingredients to a batch of zucchini muffins the other day. It definitely gets messy and undoubtedly takes longer than if I just cook something myself, but we have […]

Back-to-School Snack Ideas

Phoebe starts pre-school this Thursday. It’s only a couple mornings a week, but it already feels so surreal watching her try on her new backpack and adjust her pigtails as she gets ready to join the ranks of the “big kids.” How did 2-years-old come so quickly? Along with preschool comes another new milestone: school snacks! Such a […]

How to Cook With Your Kids

When I was pregnant, I read the book Bringing Up Bébé about the benefits of the French parenting style. In one scene, the author recounts an experience where she watched one of her friends bake a cake with her 3-year-old daughter — a relaxing weekend tradition that is de rigueur in many French households. Ever since, I’ve carried around a […]

From Camille’s Kitchen :: Peach Shortcakes with Lavender Cream

Even in today’s world where you can get pretty decent strawberries, citrus, and other produce all year round (imported of course, but totally edible), peaches are one of those items that should be reserved for summertime only. The flavorless and mealy stone fruit that pop up in grocery stores out-of-season barely resemble the sweet, luscious […]

Tuesday Tastings :: Nutty Vegan Granola Bars

I cooked a lot over the holidays, and I even took photos of a few things I thought I might share with you guys (Christmas morning sticky buns, braised short ribs, and other such decadence.) But alas, they’ll have to wait for another day, because I am just over overindulgence right now, and really feel like I can’t […]

Little Things :: A Fall Menu for Kids

For me, Fall is all about getting together with friends and family. The summer is spent gallivanting around with no school and no schedule, and you miss a lot of the routine get-togethers and weekly catch ups with the folks you love. So as the air cools off and things kick back into gear, its […]

What Phoebe Eats

Gourmand. A person who loves good food (and occasionally enjoys it too much) — one who is flavor-obsessed, often dreaming about what to make for dinner while enjoying her lunch. Yup, guilty as charged, and it probably comes as no surprise that I’ve been impatiently waiting for the month when Phoebe could move past milk and […]
