Hu Kitchen

February 13, 2016

I owe my sister Caroline for this amazing find called Hu Kitchen near Union Square in New York City.  This is the first restaurant of its kind I have seen as far as its unique format and philosophy.  It is a marketplace offering several stations (a bar offering  smoothies, juices, coffee, and fresh baked goods, one serving warm bowls and sides, one serving more pre-made sides, and a section offering grab-and-go options).  There is seating at the bar, as well…

Holiday Food Roundup 2015

January 11, 2016

Hope your holidays were merry & bright!  Here in the northeast it was unseasonably warm for most of December.  Christmas Eve was sunny with a high of 65, so I prepped Christmas brunch with the door open and took a few breaks to sun myself on the patio.

Amazing Cafe

November 6, 2015

Because I live in Pittsburgh, I am constantly on the hunt for the tastiest, healthiest spots in town.  Even though we are a small city compared to New York and Chicago, we have an impressive food scene that is constantly growing.  Our best asset is our geographic location; southwestern Pennsylvania has lush farmland, perfect for growing produce and raising grass-fed cattle, chickens, lamb, quail, guinea hen, goats, and bison, just to name a few.  We also have access to delicious…

True Food Kitchen

November 4, 2015

For the past nine months, I have been studying to become a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner. I graduated just a couple of weeks ago and am so excited to have this certification, as I feel confident that I have the tools I need to keep my family healthy, advise friends, and hopefully you, either through my posts or working with you individually. The program requires that we attend three workshop weekends in Herndon, Virginia, which is a less than ideal suburb…
