    This Week for Dinner Podcast #41: Dawn Jackson Blatner and the Best Way to Cook Carnitas

    This Week for Dinner Podcast #41: Easy and Delicious Homemade Carnitas + an Interview with Dawn Jackson Blatner, RDN, dietician for the Chicago Cubs and winner of ABC's "My Diet is Better Than Yours"

    It’s Thursday, which means it’s time for the weekly podcast! Today I share a tip for how I make homemade carnitas that requires almost no effort, with a really fabulous result. Afterwards I have a nice long chat with Dawn Jackson Blatner, RDN. Dawn is a registered dietician that works for the Chicago Cubs and also recently won the ABC reality TV show My Diet is Better Than Yours. I am lucky to count Dawn as a friend and absolutely loved having her on the show. She shares a bit about her experience on My Diet is Better Than Yours, how her philosophy around flexitarian eating came to be, tips and tricks for having a healthy yet doable diet, strategies for feeding kids, the “C.R.A.P.” you should avoid, why she thinks potatoes have gotten a bad rap, and a great kitchen tip that will simplify your life. Also, recipes. Lots and lots of great recipes. I love this episode and I’m sure you will, too!

    How to Start a Podcast, Step by Step

    Last November I launched a podcast. And I love it. Podcasting is a blast and I love working on it more than I thought I would. That said, the learning curve for starting a podcast is STEEP. Once you’ve got it up and running, though, it pretty much runs itself (well, okay, not totally, but close). But to get to that point there are a lot of steps. As I went through the process I found there wasn’t one source that told me every step, although this post from Pat Flynn at Smart Passive Income was definitely the most helpful and a lifesaver. Even with Pat’s great tutorials, I still found I had many questions.

    How to Start a Podcast, Step by Step | from @janemaynard

    Today I am speaking at the Mom 2.0 Summit about podcasting and thought this would be a good time to write down exactly how to build a podcast step by step, how I personally did it from the ground up. There are as many ways to set up a podcast as there are stars in the sky (okay, maybe not that many, but close). So, you know, this is definitely not the only way, but I still think it will be helpful!

    Podcast Episode #39: Thursday Recipe & a Tip!

    This Week for Dinner Podcast Episode 39: Thursday Recipe & a Tip, Including the BEST chocolate chip cookie recipe ever and the kitchen appliance you NEED.

    It’s Thursday, which means today’s podcast episode is a quickie. First off, I share my most favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe. For the record, I’m not the only one who loves this recipe. Right after I finished recording the episode, my friend Carrie texted me to say she makes the recipe all the time since I brought her cookies when she had her baby and she thinks of me each time she makes them. Really, people, it’s the best recipe out there. I also wax poetic about my favorite kitchen appliance. Enjoy!

    Today’s podcast guest is, quite simply, lovely. For the show I sit down to talk with Helene Dujardin, talented food photographer and food writer who blogs at Tartelette. Helene and I get all deep, talking about how life often leads you where you least expect it, how she has used what she eats to help manage Ménière’s disease, different approaches to getting dinner on the table each week and more. In addition, Helene shares TONS of great recipes and kitchen tips, which is immediately apparent by the long list of links below. I am sure you will walk away from today’s podcast loving Helene as much as I do!

    This Week for Dinner Podcast #37: Thursday Recipe & a Tip – Chocolate!

    This Week for Dinner Podcast #37: Thursday Recipe & a Tip - Chocolate!

    Today’s Thursday Recipe & a Tip is all about chocolate. I could talk for days about chocolate. I limited myself to 11 minutes this time around, but I think I’m going to have to do more chocolate-themed episodes. Because 11 minutes is not enough time to tell you all the ways to make perfect chocolate in your kitchen. Anyway, today I share one of my most favorite chocolate recipes with you as well as the secret ingredient you can use in your cooking to make chocolate rich in flavor.

    Please note: In this episode I mention that the SoNo Baking Company is in New York, but I meant Connecticut. I grew up in the “tri state area” (which is essentially NYC/Long Island, Northern New Jersey and Connecticut). Apparently my subconscious considers all of that “New York.” 😉

    This Week for Dinner Podcast #36: Weelicious and One Potato's Catherine McCord

    It’s a Monday, which means I get to share an interview with you on the podcast! Today I have a little chat with Catherine McCord, food blogger at Weelicious, author of two cookbooks and founder of the new meal delivery service One Potato. Catherine is a dedicated mother who cooks at home pretty much every day, despite an insane working schedule for herself and her husband. In addition to her kitchen awesomeness, she’s just a really nice person that I am grateful to know.

    This Week for Dinner Podcast Episode #34: Allison Czarnecki

    This Week for Dinner Podcast Episode #34: Interview with lifestyle blogger Allison Czarnecki

    Hi friends! So, last week I took a little podcast break, but today we are back! Since it’s Monday I have an interview for you and it’s a doozy, in a good way, of course. My colleague, business partner and friend Allison Czarnecki from the lifestyle blog Petit Elefant joins me to discuss several great recipes and kitchen tips. Allison started her blog many moons ago and writes about style, family, home, travel and, of course, FOOD. Allison, our friend Marie (who was on the podcast previously) and I started a business together in 2009 and are pretty much bonded for life. On today’s episode we talk a lot about food but Allison also gets me in a silly mood, which just plain means trouble. Thanks for that, Allison.
