Simple Supper Prescription

It has been longer than I can remember since I posted a recipe. I could say life has been busy with travel and running and well life and that is true. Particularly during the spring and summer as I ramped up the miles for my birthday 100 at High Lonesome. There were weeks where dinner…

Roasted Squash and Lentils

This recipe has been sitting half finished for awhile but this description  of how thing s have been of late still holds true. At times life seems to be relentless and if I’m honest a little brutal. In moments like this I often fall into what I call “subsistence eating”. I fall out of love…

Sauce of the summer: Fresh Tomatillo

This blender concoction takes only a few minutes and tastes delicious. With two productive tomatillo plants this summer Rob and I ate a lot of it. Of course it’s right at home atop tacos –  tempeh, cauliflower, mushroom, it made the rounds this summer. However it is good for so much more. Want to gussy…

End of Summer: Garden Clean Out Bread Salad

It’s been a busy summer. Trying to max out traveling while working the busy time of year at our local community college has left me pretty exhausted. Dinners when we have been home have been utilitarian to say the least. Without the garden and a pantry that approaches preparation for the apocalypse, I’m not sure…

Race Ready Rice Balls

This certainly isn’t an original idea. Half the world has been “fueling” on rice for generations. However it was definitely new to me back in 2015 when I got the chance to run the Ultra Trail Mount Fuji. I have a bit of a tricky stomach on race day. It’s not as bad as some…

Tagine Tuesday- Cauliflower & Chickpea Tagine with berbere

Maybe it’s because Rob gave me a gorgeous red tagine for my birthday, or because the flavor profiles of these dishes are so versatile and go well with a variety of veggies. Or perhaps I just plain love these spices, but whatever the reason I have been making a bunch of riffs on this classic…

Crispy Kale & Quinoa Bowl with Kimchi

We just wrapped up our second winter camp and it was full of laughter, great weather, and of course great runs. I  was so glad to share the Kahtoola Uphill with folks again. It is such a unique event, uphill races are definitely becoming more popular, but it still is a new experience for most…

Super Powered Crispy Treats

Just in time for those Halloween cravings – and spooky headlamp runs as the days get shorter – I give you super-powered crispy treats. This fall with multiple invites I contemplated finally checking off the R2R2R. That’s right folks while I have had hours of joyful suffer-fests in the Canyon I have never done this…

Antioxidant Bowl

Summer is flying by before my eyes. Even though the days are long sometimes my time in the kitchen is short. This recipe may use a few too many pots to be truly simple but it is quick to put together if the veggies and grains are cooked ahead of time. Everything of course is…
