Pumpkin Chia Bars

So I have been experimenting with making my own chia bars lately. I love having healthy and nutritious snacks on hand that I can take with me to work, or grab after a workout or between meals.  When I had an open can of pumpkin purée from my pumpkin cooking extravaganza, I thought why not try some pumpkin spice chia bars too? They turned out better than I even dared!

Washington, DC Restaurant Review: Sticky Fingers Bakery

I’ve heard so much about Sticky Fingers Bakery in DC, but despite my numerous trips to DC I had never made the effort to check it out.  This time I had an evening to myself and decided to head up to Columbia Heights to see for myself what all of the fuss was about.

Spicy Pomelo Salad

On one of my recent trips to Thailand I was introduced to the wonder that is spicy pomelo salad and knew that when I got home I would have to try to recreate it. This is my attempt and I think it is pretty close!

Pomelo (also known as pummelo, pommelo, or shaddock) is now in season in the US and readily available in most grocery stores, so it’s the perfect time for it!

Washington, DC Restaurant Review: Sweetgreen

I wasn’t looking for a salad for dinner in DC when I was there the week before last.  No, far to the contrary. But after going to two Thai restaurants only to find that neither of them offered both gluten free and vegan food, I ended up at Sweetgreen

I’ve eaten at Sweetgreen before in DC and really enjoyed it, so I wasn’t entirely sorry.  This time I went for the spicy sabzi salad, the lentil soup and the cranberry ginger green tea.

Perfect Pumpkin Pancakes, Gluten Free

At least once every weekend we will have pancakes for breakfast.  A couple of Saturdays ago I was making a whole bunch of things pumpkin.  I had some pumpkin purée left over, so on Sunday I decided to experiment with pumpkin pancakes.  My partner declared them, “the best ever!” For him, who generally has little to say about food, that was a major, major compliment.
