  1. Every foodie and/or home cook needs one quality baking dish, and this Le Creuset Heritage Stoneware Rectangular Covered Casserole will not disappoint!  Let's be honest— foodies love anything Le Creuset because their stuff is so durable and looks pretty, too!
  2. Foodies are notorious chocolate snobs and this chocolate is a real winner!  Using only coconut sugar to sweeten their products, Hu Chocolate does chocolate right.
  3. Walnut wood everything is all the rage right now, so why not upgrade your favorite foodie's utensils to a rich and durable walnut finish?  Functional and beautiful!
  4. This gorgeous brass wire cart would be a great gift for a any cookbook hoarder; beautiful enough to display, but functional with ample storage and accessibility!
  5. Foodies love all-natural personal products, too!  This deodorant from Primally Pure actually works and smells great!  And don't worry— foodies won't take a deodorant gift personally.
  6. While foodies do love cookbooks, they also love browsing for new recipes online!  Protect their precious laptop beautifully with this leather laptop case!

  9. Pretty cups are great to have on hand for entertaining! And I'm really into pink right now— have you noticed?
  10. Non-toxic, durable, nonstick, and easy-to-clean, these pans are epic!  The ridges in the pan provide perfect air flow underneath food to ensure even, thorough cooking.
  11. Last, but certainly not least, are Stasher Bags!  Perfect for storing smoothie ingredients in the freezer or snacks in your purse, these reusable silicone bags are super versatile.  Oh, and they're dishwasher safe!

There you have it!  What are you getting your favorite foodie this season?

Eat (and gift) well,


What Is Meal PlanNing Anyway?

I think meal planning is an intimidating concept for many.  Actually, I don’t think, I know!  Clients are always wondering — What is meal planning?  How do you do it?  When do you do it?  Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how you look at it), there is no one or right way to meal plan. 

Maple Roasted Delicata Squash and Onions

Fall is finally here!  Fall is my favorite season by far for many reasons — beautiful foliage, cooler temps (i.e., the ability to cuddle up in a cozy sweater all day), and of course, the availability of pumpkin everything!  While I am admittedly a sucker for all things pumpkin,  I also love branching out and experimenting with other delicious fall produce, particularly other squashes!

Enter the small-but-mighty delicata squash, which is quite possibly the most delicious squash in existence.
