Healthy doughnuts (seriously)

Sarah Henning

http://www.lawrence.com/users/photos/2014/mar/06/270079/ I love to bake. LOVE it. Thus, I probably have every type of baker’s tool lying around somewhere in my kitchen cabinets — Silpat, candy molds, springform pan, French spatula, etc. And I’ve used everything I own at one time or another save for a single item that I’ve ...

Dreaming of June with beets

Sarah Henning

http://www.lawrence.com/users/photos/2014/feb/26/269697/ I’ve been in the mood for beets lately. Like lots and lots of beets. Maybe it’s just my appetite’s way trying to get me to think warm thoughts. You know, because the local beet crop will kick in in June. Ah, June. Do you guys remember what June feels ...

Sarah Henning

http://www.lawrence.com/users/photos/2014/feb/19/269310/ A few weeks ago, I wrote about [National Pizza Day][1].

Eat Your Veggies: (Healthier) cut-out cookies

Sarah Henning

http://www.lawrence.com/users/photos/2014/feb/13/268946/ For Valentine's Day, my little guy wanted to make something special. He’d already devoured [my deconstructed chocolate-covered fruit salad][1] (turns out he likes white chocolate?), so we decided to make something else from scratch. Ever since Christmas, he’s been constantly asking to make cut-out cookies, but we just hadn’t ...

Eat Your Veggies: National Pizza Day

Sarah Henning

http://www.lawrence.com/users/photos/2014/feb/10/268773/ Sunday was National Pizza Day—something I didn’t know a thing about until various types of social media informed me. Thank goodness for Twitter, am I right? Needless to say, my pizza-loving family was happy to abandon our previous meal plan and make pizza. About the time we decided to ...

Eat Your Vegetables: Snow day prep

Sarah Henning

http://www.lawrence.com/users/photos/2014/feb/04/268409/ Ah, the rush for EVERYTHING at the grocery store, the night before the storm. Having lived in both Scranton, Pa., and West Palm Beach, Fla., my husband and I intimately know the “storm food rush.” In Pennsylvania, we were hopelessly laid out to dry by lifetime residents — little ...

I thought I'd end this month's healthy eating pep talk with a delicious treat that works as both a snack and dessert. And — ...

Snack time

Sarah Henning

http://www.lawrence.com/users/photos/2014/jan/20/267757/ In the month of January, I’ve discussed several of the finer points of cleaning up your eating in the new year: shopping and dining strategies, the freezer as your friend and letting yourself eat chocolate. Now, it’s snack time. Acknowledging that, yes, chances are you’ll eat between meals goes ...

Room for dessert

Sarah Henning

http://www.lawrence.com/users/photos/2014/jan/13/267331/ This January, I’ve been making it a point to write about healthy eating and how to get started if your resolutions included cleaning things up a bit. And, honestly, I could never, ever think about eating — healthy or otherwise — without thinking about dessert. The need for something ...

Inspiration on ice

Sarah Henning

http://www.lawrence.com/users/photos/2014/jan/06/266941/ Last week, [I wrote about the little things][1] you could do to help make it toward your goal of eating better in the new year.
