{Nourish} Cool Weather Cobbler

Cool Weather Cobbler with Cranberries and Ginger @KatieCavutoRDAs far as I am concerned, every season deserves a cobbler or crumble of sorts. While I tend not to have much of a sweet tooth (pass the potato chips, please), I love fruit and roasted fruit may just top the list of my favorite desserts–they simply feel more savory to me. This cool weather cobbler is packed with fall flavors including savory spices like ginger and cinnamon. Apple and pears cozy up together with antioxidant rich, immune boosting cherries and cranberries for a colorful, sweet and tart, treat that is really satisfying. The crumble is bolstered by the richness of almonds and pumpkin seeds which add texture, satiating healthy fats and an added boost of nutrient density. A touch of maple syrup is all you need to accent this naturally sweet dessert that is honestly so good for you I would eat it for breakfast too! Bonus, you can swap the fruit depending on the season. Peaches, rhubarb, berries–they would all work beautifully in this recipe! Continue reading “{Nourish} Cool Weather Cobbler”

{Nourish} Wild Blueberry, Lemon and Hazelnut Quick Bread

Hazelnut Lemon Wild Blueberry CakeCake for breakfast makes everything better, right? We think so and that is why I whipped up a batch of my favorite gluten-free quick bread this week! We are still adjusting to our new kindergarten schedule. Wow, the hour we lost each morning makes a huge difference in our routine. I am setting an alarm clock for the first time since Hudson was born and let me tell you, I would far rather wake up to his voice and snuggles than even the sweetest of sounds my phone can muster. And, as you can imagine, breakfast is a bit more rushed than it used to be so creativity and planning have become a priority. A variation of this bread has been a staple in our house for a year or so and it has become the perfect make-ahead breakfast item for busy mornings and we can all feel good about eating it plus, Hudson thinks it’s cake so he gobbles it up without complaint!

{Nourish} Chocolate Cashew Butter Zucchini Muffins

Gluten Free Chocolate Zucchini Muffin What does it take to get me back in the swing of the blog? Um….the very best muffin recipe I have ever baked!!! Seriously.

This one bowl recipe was not only easy to make–it is chock-full of really good-for-you ingredients.

{Nourish} Irresistible Quinoa Breakfast Cereal

Quinoa Breakfast with Strawberries, Pistachio and Chocolate

My mission as a chef and dietitian is to inspire people to create meals that taste great and are great for you too. But let’s be honest, creating a unique flavor combination can often feel overwhelming. That is why I teamed up with Curate Snacks! They have spent endless hours in the kitchen curating unique ingredient pairings and flavor profiles for their new line of bars. These bars are proof that wholesome and delicious are not mutually exclusive! I love how Curate combines nourishing ingredients to create wonderfully surprising, flavorful combinations that are really satisfying and taste great. From the bright pop of orange zest to the crunchy texture of quinoa and the smooth creaminess of almond butter, the flavors and ingredients in the Curate Irresistible Dark Chocolate bar, inspired me to create this breakfast cereal. Bonus, you can probably whip this up with ingredients you have hanging around your house!
