Sunday Night Chicken

Sunday Night Chicken by Stacy @Nutrition as Nature Intended

PagesSunday Night ChickenSunday nights are usually not a popular night. The realization that the weekend went by way too quickly is upon us, and most of us have to get ready for school or work the next day.

Ginger Maple Pumpkin Butter

Ginger Maple Pumpkin Butter by Stacy @Nutrition as Nature Intended

My mom asked me the other day to make her more jam for her breakfast. Unfortunately, the berries that work best for making jam are completely out of season. As we brainstormed different options, we came up with pumpkin butter! Traditionally, pumpkin butter is made with a lot of refined sugar...not the best way to start the day. After…

Ras el Hanout Spiced Crackers

Ras el Hanout Spiced Crackers by Stacy @Nutrition as Nature Intended

PagesRas el Hanout Spiced CrackersThe spice jar I reach for most often in the kitchen is Ras el Hanout. It is a spice blend that literally means "top of the shop” or "head of the shop", because it is the best spice mixture a merchant has to offer.

Balsamic Pears with Honey Black Pepper Cream

Balsamic Pears with Honey Black Pepper Cream by Stacy @Nutrition as Nature Intended

PagesBalsamic Pears with Honey Black Pepper CreamEveryone who knows me knows that I love pepper…I put it on everything. People seem most surprised when I add fresh cracked pepper to fruit (sidenote—it is so good on cantaloupe). When I saw a recipe in Health magazine for balsamic poached pears, I knew I had to play around with it. The…

Orzo with Asparagus, Mascarpone and Chives by Stacy @Nutrition as Nature Intended

PagesOrzo with Asparagus, Mascarpone and ChivesThe other day I asked K to pick up a bunch of asparagus. Now, I meant one bundle of asparagus. He thought I meant a lot of asparagus so he brought home three bundles. Reminds me of the time I asked him to bring home zucchini and he bought a cucumber. Cutie :). So, having a lot of…

Latkes by Stacy @Nutrition as Nature Intended

Every year my family has a Hannukah party on Saturday night. Our friends and family get together to celebrate and EAT. The star of the night is always the latkes. I am sure every Jewish family thinks their latkes are the best—but my family's really are! The key is the large amount of chopped onions we add to the potato mixture. It…

I first had tomato jam at FIVE restaurant in Berkeley this summer. It was served in a dollop on top of goat cheese orzo “mac and cheese” with morel mushrooms. It added a sweet flavor that balanced perfectly with the cheese. Because I was inspired during the summer, I was able to make the jam with great seasonal tomatoes from my…
