If you're looking for an elegant, easy to make side dish for your holiday table (or any night of the week!) Stuffed Delicata Squash with Quinoa, Pomegranate and Pistachios is the way to go!  It also holds up well to baking which makes it an excellent choice for both qu...

I'm not sure I can recall another time when we needed to shovel a foot and a half of snow already by mid-November! Ya think if we get a heap of snow on the front end of the season we'll have an early spring? I've given up trying to predict New England weather, but I do know all this cold weather makes me crave carbs. And guess what my friends, that's not always a bad thing!

Carbs, just like fat in previous years, have unfairly...

Tacos are king... and limiting taco goodness to Tuesdays is NOT gonna cut it when there are SO many drool-worthy ways to indulge... like my latest autumn version here ~ Roasted Pumpkin and Black Bean Tacos!

Soft, warm, chewy, flavorful... what's not to love about homemade naan bread?! I've taken it a step further by adding pureed pumpkin, caramelized onions, crushed fennel seeds, peppercorns and dried sage leaves to create this version that truly celebrates fall! Completely plant-based too!

Hi there, I'm Catherine! 

I'm so happy you stopped by my little corner of the internet. So, are you hungry? Me too! What to eat, is the question. As an organic produce grower, classically trained personal chef who eats mostly plants, and a dietetics student, I'm always thinking about food.... how it looks, smells, tastes, makes us feel and affects our environment. I regularly geek out on the science behind what makes plants scrumptious and why we should eat more of them. I love to share my experiments with YOU! So grab an apron, sharpen your knife and let's go!
