Do you see that caption there in the bottom right corner…What to Eat This Week: A 7 Day Menu??? That’s my article!!!…On the front cover of January’s issue of Pregnancy and Newborn!
You may remember back in July when I wrote an online piece for the magazine…well, the menu captured enough interest that they extended the invitation to me for a print piece!
I’m over the moon with how it turned out…it spans 4 pages! They even used some of my photos (see the table runner under the ravioli…that’s mine!).
I love how they incorporated my information on vitamins…the sidebars really catch the eye and provide insight into why I chose the foods I included in the 7 day menu of breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and snacks.
They gave me a lot of room to creatively produce a seasonal menu that I am proud of. I was even able to include some uncomplicated recipes.
For all my readers with child, and for those of you who are just interested, you can read the whole menu here. I hope you, and all the magazine’s readers, find it to be helpful. It makes me smile (and blush, a bit) to think that there are women out there that I might be helping!
Thank you again, Pregnancy and Newborn. And, for any other magazines that might be searching for nutrition writers (oh, I SO wish they were reading my blog!)…Ask me! Choose me! I would love to write more articles this year.

When the lovely editor of The Runcible Spoon asked me to contribute to their holiday issue I was so stoked! The Runcible Spoon is a fab-o, super hip food zine based in Washington, D.C. The goal of the zine’s founders “is to capture the pleasure of eating food and present it to you in a half-collage, half-illustrated, half-magic little magazine.” For each issue (there have now been 6), a community of offbeat writers and bloggers contributes stories, restaurant reviews, and recipes “with the hope of one thing: to get you daydreaming about food, glorious food — and cooking, of course!”
When I was approached about contributing to the fall issue, I pitched the idea of a slow cooked meat recipe which sort of signifies cold autumn football Saturdays for me. I love the idea of a slowly simmering, rich, meaty meal on the stove while cozying up on the couch to cheer for our favorite teams. Thankfully, the editor liked my idea and allowed me to contribute my original recipe featuring homemade pork meatballs made with red wine and apple cider. When I saw the finished product last week, I was so excited! The illustrations and fun collage on my page are adorable! I love the small touch of red yarn under my name, introductory paragraph, and recipe title that resembles the stitching on a football! And, I love the sweet picture of the boy and girl looking dreamily at each other coming out of the Le Creuset roasting pan.
Check out the whole zine here…it’s worth the read!
Would love to know what you think. And, if you make the meatballs…how’d you like them?
