Recipe: Apple Muffins

Post by Olivia Blodgett, Registered Dietitian

Lately, I have been doing a lot of baking for my daughter and since she is only one, I want to avoid adding any added sugars to the foods that she eats. I have been playing with blending up raisins in water in place of liquid sweeteners and have found that the result is perfect! There’s still some sweetness but I feel better about giving her the whole fruit, which includes the fiber and also some trace minerals, like iron instead of simple sugars like honey or cane sugar. I thought these muffins turned out delightfully and will be making them on repeat throughout the fall and winter. Enjoy!

Recipe: Pizza Dough

Post by Olivia Blodgett, Registered Dietitian

It’s time to give away another one of our secret cooking class recipes! Our recipe for pizza dough is so simple but it’s SO good and it’s just not fair to keep it to myself. Our pizza class was always hectic, hot (the fire alarm never failed to go off several times during class) but super fun and so delicious. This is one of those recipes that I find myself referencing often at home. Making your own pizza dough is well worth the minimal effort it takes and is such a fun thing to do with dinner guests. I’m looking forward to a pizza party myself, tonight!

Recipe: Mongolian Soy Curls

Post by Olivia Blodgett, Registered Dietitian

I made this dish for personal chef clients this week and was asked to post the recipe. I love working with soy curls both for their nutritional value (they are a great source of protein), their versatility and their texture. If you live in Portland, soy curls can be purchased in the bulk section of New Seasons. If you aren’t local, you can purchase them online here. They are a great pantry staple to always keep on hand for a quick meal!
