Hi foodie friends! If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook you know that I just launched my writing website at katiecurtis.net. Janine Isabelle did a great job designing both sites. It feels really fun to share essays and notes on writing, but I missed hanging out in foodie land too, so I love having a space for both things on the web this year. (The two sites have links at the top connecting them so you can go back and forth). I looked at the way I love to use blogs for inspiration both in the kitchen and to grow in learning, to become a better mom, writer, friend. I hope to give content on both sites that inspire your hearts and your stomaches.

So before I unpack from a week of skiing, allow me to procrastinate on all that laundry by finding yummy, healthy recipes.  I still need yumminess in my life even if the holidays are over.

Here are a few lighter recipes I found on the web that I can’t wait to try:

Chicken and Barley Stew with Dill and Lemon.

Balsamic Chicken and Vegetables.

Barley Vegetable Soup.

This Healthy Shepard’s Pie.

Vegetable Gumbo.

Greek Lemon Chicken Soup.

Potato Corn Chowder.// Using milk instead of cream. This is my husband’s favorite.

This Leek and Potato Soup.//Using milk instead of cream.

Green Lentil Curry. Yum.

All these Food & Wine Quinoa recipes.

And since we left to go skiing right after Christmas, here is a little look back on our Christmas season. Faneuil Hall Christmas lights got us in the Christmas spirit, Challah Egg Nog French Toast was amazing, Mac & Cheese bar on Christmas Eve was too (lobster and bacon stirred into Smoky Mac & Cheese. Both are definitely new traditions since I can’t wait to have them again), skiing and games up north, and lots and lots of cookies. There was sickness and exhaustion, too, but great memories were made.
