About this Cook
I am a Registered Dietitian with a passion for food! Although I spend most of my time counseling and caring for patients in a hospital setting, I love to put my food and nutrition knowledge to work in the kitchen at home. I believe that all foods can and should be a part of a healthy diet. I love trying new foods and cooking with new ingredients. Right now, I am focusing on trying new seasonal fruits and vegetables. The challenge of finding a delicious recipe for some unfamiliar foods has been a fun and interesting adventure.

Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato Soup
This soup was a great way to use up the tomato surplus from my garden. I roasted the tomatoes alongside the red peppers to increase the delicious, smoky flavor. To roast: I halved the tomatoes, used a skewer help seed them, gave a light spray of canola oil and placed cut side down on the grill until the skins started to wrinkle and the tomatoes softened a bit. Once they cooled, I peeled off the skin, chopped and added the tomatoes as directed in the recipe. I cut down on the cooking time to account for the fact that the tomatoes were pre-roasted. My only complaint is that there was a bit too much Thyme for my taste. I'll probably cut that down to a 1/2 teaspoon next time. Otherwise, the recipe was fantastic. Will definitely make this again!

Sauteed Swiss Chard with Parmesan Cheese
This is a new favorite in my house! I used the rainbow chard which adds beautiful color to your dinner plate. I've also used this same recipe for spinach and broccoli rabe. Works quite well.
