As registered dietitians, one of the first things that we learned during our undergraduate studies was the importance of family mealtime. Although we have fond memories of growing up and having fun family dinners, it hadn’t yet dawned on us how much we’d notice this personally when we had our own kids.
What's the best part of the holidays? Having your babies help you in the kitchen!
My two-year-old wanted to help me cook and I couldn't find anything for her to do that didn't involve a hot pan, a burning oven, or a sharp knife! I took out the crescent rolls so she could play with the dough and that's when this fun idea came into my head.
These little crescent roll messages are so fun and the perfect project for any little one.
(Note: I used regular store bought crescent rolls for this.)
These garlic mashed potatoes are a household favorite. We love to make this recipe for the holidays. In fact, if we are celebrating Thanksgiving and Christmas at our house, the recipe is so good we usually make it twice.
The smell of roasting pumpkin seeds is the second best part of carving Jack o’ Lanterns for Halloween… the first best thing is, of course, carving funny faces into a pumpkin.

Get your party on, and your apron off! Healthy summer parties should be spent with your guests, not serving them.
Whether you’re a fan of the Giants or the Patriots, we're all fans of Superbowl food.
It’s fried, fatty, decadent and delicious - it's like Halloween for adults, but without the costumes! (Unless you're one of those super fans who dress up and paint their faces.)
We are down to the Final Four teams left standing in the NFL. This weekend the New York Giants will play the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Championship game, and the Baltimore Ravens will play the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship. The winner of those two games will play in the Super Bowl on Sunday February 5th.
Every year I compile a list of my top ten favorite kitchen gadgets and tools and forward it an email to all of my family and friends… this holiday season is no exception, only I’m sharing it with all of you wonderful and kitchen savvy mamas out there.
Want a change from the usual Thanksgiving turkey left-over sandwiches? How about a twist on an old favorite?
This is my favorite recipe for fried-rice, but with a turkey twist!
One of the side dishes that I look forward to most on the Thanksgiving Day dinner table is stuffing! Corn bread, seasoned, mushroom, andouille sausage, southwest style, cajun… seriously, I could pull a Forrest Gump here and and name a million and one different kind’s of stuffing that I love.
