I love a good contest (especially when I win) and I love to cook and encourage others to do the same. So I’m thrilled to announce the Attune Foods Cooking Challenge Recipe Contest that kicks off October 1st. [See below for more info] Attune is challenging you in the months of October, November and December to submit a recipe (or more) in the treats, savory, and homemade gifts categories, respectively. I’ll be submitting my own recipes on the Attune blog and would love to see some of yours submitted as well. Read below for more details, including info on the fantastic prize. You’re gonig to want to enter this one, and as I always say, “Can’t win if you don’t enter!”

Ready, set, cook!

Show your cooking creativity with our three months of Cooking Challenges Contest. We have a hunch your oven will be working overtime getting ready for those holiday celebrations, family get-togethers and intimate soirees. Take the cereal beyond the bowl and show us what you’ve got for some sweet prizes!

Each month, we will select one winner of that month’s cooking challenge. The winner will have their recipe printed on the product packaging used in their winning recipe, and

win a $200 gift card to the grocery store of their choice, along with $200 donated on their behalf to Share Our Strength, a non-profit working towards ending childhood hunger inAmerica.

If you have a blog, share your recipe with your readers, letting them know you’ve entered the attune foods Cooking Challenge there as well as including it in the entry form with a link back to your original post. Make sure to include a statement at the bottom of your blog post, “My opinions are my own and this post is in conjunction with my entry into the attune foods Cooking Challenges Contest.”

Sweet Apple Walnut Wheat Berry Salad

Sweet Apple Walnut Wheat Berry Salad

Usually it takes me weeks to finish a big bag of apples from an apple picking trip. I’m an apple-a-day kind of girl nearly year round, but when apples are busting at the seams of my refrigerator, it’s a little overwhelming! I was trying to come up with a savory dinner dish that would helpshow me more

My Mediterranean Diet

My Mediterranean Diet

Recently I was working with a client who had been caught up in following the latest fad diet and celebrity cleanse. We had just finished talking about using the term diet to indicate “ways of eating,” and not a calorie restricted meal plan one goes on (and then off) in an effort to lose weightshow me more

I don’t know why, but I seem to be in a cooking funk (not Funk) lately…no pun intended. This month has been overly crazy for the two of us, and I think it is sapping all of my creative cooking energy. Yes I’ve still been cooking, but it’s been the basics in our kitchen withshow me more

McDonald’s Vegan Burger

Growing up, trips to McDonalds were limited to the few times each year we’d drive from Massachusetts to Long Island to visit my grandparents and stop for lunch. That was fine with me, since I don’t remember being one of those kids who begged and pleaded to go to the golden arches (at least Ishow me more

Nashoba Valley Winery and Apple Cinnamon Muffins

This past weekend Funk and I got to finally celebrate Jess‘ birthday, which was rain-delayed after hurricane Irene’s arrival a few weeks ago. Fun fact about our friendship with Jess: she used to work with Funk at UMass when they were undergrads, but then lost touch. Jess and I met a few years later throughshow me more

My Day as a Dietitian and How to Become One

(source) Tomorrow officially marks my 7 year anniversary as a dietitian. Cue the confetti! I still remember the morning I took my RD exam at some local college’s testing center. When the screen shut off and notified me that I had passed, I ran outside to where my mom was sitting, quietly cheered (people wereshow me more

Quinoa with Apricot Almonds and Asparagus

Quinoa with Apricot Almonds and Asparagus

I just realized this great quinoa salad is filled with “A” ingredients: asparagus, almonds, and apricots! I made a massive batch of this quinoa salad last week so we’d have enough leftover to come home to after a weekend away.
