Who I Am

My wedding day 9.19.09

I consider this blog a mechanism to channel food and cooking anecdotes while sharing nutritional knowledge accumulated as a Registered Dietitian.  It’s a personal attempt to recapture my creativity and summon my love for food, nutrition and health. Unfortunately, my day job doesn’t allow such delights; but it does pay the bills.

While I no longer counsel patients in a hospital or directly fight childhood obesity, I am committed to a field that is powerful enough to prevent disease and illness, while captivating senses and provoking memories.  I’m also cultivating an appreciation for locally produced foods and sustainable agriculture – taking a more systems approach to food; searching beyond the plate, asking questions, and learning where my food comes from.

I live in the food-phile city of Philadelphia in a suburb of Philadelphia after spending 5 years roaming the restaurants in the City of Brotherly Love… and, most recently, exploring the fabulous array of farmers’ markets the city has to offer.  This blog has helped me to realize that the most enjoyable type of food is the kind created in one’s very own kitchen using fresh, seasonal offerings that provide optimal nutrition and help protect our land and our environment.

Check out CC&T Namesake for more information about the creation of this blog.  The “Responsible Eating” page details my commitment to eating locally, seasonally and ethically whenever possible.

Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Great blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally confused .. Any ideas? Kudos!

  4. Now I have a place to look for healthy recipes with some commentary on things from someone who has tried them out! BTW, since you are a registered dietician, one of the books that we love that we found at our healthcare provider (Kaiser Permanente) is the Mayo Clinic Cookbook. There are a lot of fantastic recipes in there that we’ve come back to over and over.
