As a dietitian, home cook, and enthusiast of all-things-delicious, I'm often asked, "so what do YOU eat?" Here's a blog to answer that very question! My hope is that you'll find (even just a little) inspiration from some of my favorite recipes, restaurants, party-ideas and food musings for your own happy, healthy, food-loving lifestyle.

Northern Spy Food

It's been open a little over 2 years now. Northern Spy Food continues to be at the top of my list of restaurants to take friends. Delicious local ingredients help them create a rotating menu of seasonal comfort food. Portions are perfectly suited for sharing a variety of starters and mains; trust me, you'll want a taste of as much as possible once you see/smell/taste what's coming out of the kitchen. 

Another reason I love this place? They do vegetables BEAUTIFULLY. For me, there is nothing better than a touch of meat/cheese/decadence with a heaping plate of the healthy stuff. Last night we ordered Kale Salad, Marinated Beets with Goat's Yogurt, Crispy Gnocchi and the Hudson Valley Pork Special, which was pork belly with black-eyed peas and greens. With copious wine and dessert, the whole evening was only $60 a person. Reasonable for such a high quality, delicious meal!

goat's yogurt was pleasantly surprising

Crispy Gnocchi is a great shared indulgence!
