The perfect pad thai

Sarah Henning

http://www.lawrence.com/users/photos/2014/mar/27/271105/ I’ve been a longtime lover of pad thai. A connoisseur, really. It’s one of my go-to treat foods after a marathon or ultramarathon. I’ve devoured it in probably every state I’ve ever visited. Honestly, if a restaurant has it on its menu, I’ll try it at least once, no ...

That's a wrap, winter

Sarah Henning

http://www.lawrence.com/users/photos/2014/mar/20/270746/ Sometimes, especially times like these when we are just starting a new season (hello, spring!), I end up taking an old favorite and changing it up a bit. You know, so it looks all fresh and shiny but pretty much tastes the same (because, as you know, I’m a ...

Blueberries get a faux summer treatment

Sarah Henning

http://www.lawrence.com/users/photos/2014/mar/12/270358/ I keep pretending the glimpses of warm weather we’ve been getting will actually last. And then Mother Nature comes in and rains (or snows) on my parade. She might have control over the weather, but I have control over the kitchen. And this week I wanted a summer dessert. ...

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 ...

Mini polenta pizzas a quick alternative to the real thing

Sarah Henning

http://www.lawrence.com/users/photos/2014/feb/19/269310/ A few weeks ago, I wrote about [National Pizza Day][1]. And while our family loves making homemade pizza so much that we probably do it once a week, sometimes you just don’t have the time to do it. I mean, if we don’t give the dough time to rise, ...

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 ...

Ginger cookies with a healthy twist

Sarah Henning

http://www.lawrence.com/users/photos/2014/jan/27/268085/ So far this month, I've written about tricks for eating healthy, frozen food helpers, the pros of eating dessert and how to plan healthy snacks. 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 — ...
