When you’re in a hurry, cook a curry! Despite what you may be thinking, making a curry for dinner can actually be accomplished in very little time. Curry sauces used to intimidate the heck out of me. I had thought it was required to make this elaborate, involved sauce from scratch and that the whole […]

Summer Vegetable Curry

Main Dish

With the low-carb craze these days, one of the most frequently asked questions I get is about potatoes. Many people see potatoes as one of the worst “carbs that turn to sugar” offenders and so have pushed all types of potatoes aside and off their plates. Quite honestly this just makes me sad! Because usually, […]

Mexican Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

All opinions are my own. Thanks for supporting the brands that support Casey Seiden Nutrition! The Fourth of July has come and gone, so we are firmly […]

BBQ Broccolini Salad

Main Dish

Do you eat differently when your partner isn’t around for a meal? Danny is traveling for work this week and when the husband’s away, my favorite, semi-strange (to him) foods in funky but delicious combinations have their day! That usually means more beans, greens that aren’t spinach or kale, and some more pugent flavors. This […]

Bitter Greens Bowl

Main Dish

When I’m at a loss for ideas and need an easy, “gimme” dinner, I can pretty much always count on eggs! It’s rare that I don’t have a dozen in my fridge and I use them in everything from breakfast to baking, and when in a pinch, dinner. Frittata’s are the lazy couple’s answer to […]

Asparagus and Turmeric Dinner Frittata


It’s March and somehow we’re still getting snow! Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely LOVE the snow, but it feels a bit more appropriate to have a snowfall in January and February with sub-zero temperatures, rather than a snow flurry followed by a fifty-degree sunny day- oh well! At least the weather is giving me […]

Tuscan Bean and Swiss Chard Soup

Main Dish

One of our New Year’s goals was to eat seafood at least once per week. Usually Danny and I do a fairly good job at this, but when we do dive into the ocean we tend to come up with the same things- smoked salmon, shrimp, or canned tuna or spicy tuna sushi. To be […]

Honey Sriracha Salmon with Veggie Slaw and Soba Noodles

Main Dish

What’s one food that your significant other just can’t get on board with? For my SO it was beans. If a black bean landed in a salsa at a Mexican restaurant, he would painstakingly pick each one out! It’s not that he’s one of those, “a meal isn’t a meal if it’s missing meat” kind […]

Chickpea Kale Bowl with Thai Almond Sauce

Main Dish

One of my all-time favorite summer vegetables is eggplant. I absolutely love how versatile it can be- from eggplant rollatini and parmesan, to babba ghanoush or curried eggplant, this fiber-filled veggie is a staple in my kitchen throughout July and August. Although the temperatures have been brutal in NYC, I dared to turn on my […]

Eggplant Tomato Stew


Living in New York City means that opportunities for grilling and dining al fresco in the comfort of your own home are rare if not non-existent. So, when traveling home to the Northern Kentucky area over a gloriously sunny weekend in June, I took full advantage and enjoyed a meal that included all of the […]
