Black Pepper Tofu Stir Fry

Black Pepper Tofu Stir Fry

I had my monthly book club last night. Except I didn’t read the book. In my defense, I started the first few pages and at another mom’s club event, one of the moms cued me in that the book wasn’t worth reading. If only I’d known that before spending $9.99 on the book. Ha! But,…

BBQ Bean Tacos with Pineapple Salsa

BBQ Bean Tacos with Pineapple Salsa

This post was created in partnership with Shipt. All opinions are our own. The other day we received this comment on our Instagram: “Impressed by your ability to maintain quality, healthy cooking with a newborn. We have a 4-week old and it’s still lots of freezer meals and super simple dishes! Would love a post on how you’re making it work!” @robinfitzergerald Our answer to Robin: Grocery delivery. In this day and age, you can order everything from toilet paper to peanut butter to dog treats online. And our secret to keeping it all together is that we do. We love supporting local businesses; we spend time at the farmer’s markets and local stores. But for weeknight meals and boring errands like toilet paper, it’s online ordering. There is seriously nothing better than getting groceries at my front door (except for the incessant dog barking), and I marvel at it every single time. Those grocery bags at my door are the physical representation of getting hours of my day back. Instead of getting my 2-month old in his carseat, driving to the store, maneuvering a cart wandering the aisles, standing in line, paying the cashier, maneuvering the cart to my […]

“Get Your Greens” Naan Pizzas

“Get Your Greens” Naan Pizzas

    This post was created in partnership with Sub-Zero. All opinions are our own.  Fresh food matters As you may know, we’re all about the way that eating fresh food can transform your life. Today we’ve got something special for you: an interview with a local farmer who is turning our food system upside down. He believes fresh food should be accessible to all people, not just the ones who can afford typical farmer’s markets. We’ve partnered with Sub-Zero on their Fresh Food Matters initiative to bring you an interview with Jonathan Lawler, Executive Director and Farmer with Brandywine Creek Farms here in Indianapolis. He’s got some strong opinions and a huge passion for his work. Here’s Jonathan: The interview: farmer Jonathan Lawler Sonja: The first time we spoke, you made a few bold statements: “I don’t sell at farmer’s markets. I only produce five crops. I think kale should be illegal.” Let’s take a step back: why as a local farmer don’t you sell at markets anymore? What are the crops you grow, and why only five? Jonathan: Brandywine Creek Farms is considered a large-scale produce farm. Our model serves a much wider market than what farmers markets offer us. […]

Chickpea Fattoush Nourish Bowl

Chickpea Fattoush Nourish Bowl

This chickpea fattoush nourish bowl was created in partnership with Village Farms. All opinions are our own. Alex and I were born in the 1980’s; we were those 8-year-olds who planted trees for Earth Day and worried about alternative fuel sources. But it wasn’t until adulthood that we realized that the food we eat can also affect the Earth–in both positive and negative ways. Today we’re foodies who typically wouldn’t be caught dead making a dish without of season, non-local tomatoes. We stand in support of our local farmers and against out-of-season, tasteless big-box store tomatoes. However, at the same time: we realize that in order to feed our world, we need diversity in food growing practices. As idealistic as it sounds, we’re not going to feed the world with 100% local veggie farmers. It’s estimated that by 2050 we’ll have an additional 2 billion people in this world, and to feed them we’ll need to double the amount of crops we grow. To make that happen, Alex and I believe that organizations of all kinds are going to have to lean and green up their growing practices: from small and local farmers to large and national businesses. To celebrate […]

Grilled Vegetable, Balsamic, and Goat Cheese Pasta

Grilled Vegetable, Balsamic, and Goat Cheese Pasta

I got home from work yesterday and I had 40 minutes to get dinner on the table and eat before we were dashing out the door to have Lily (our bulldog) meet Harlie (our new bulldog) on “neutral” territory. I know, I know. My circus just got a little bit more circus-y. I just pray…
