Cooking with the Moms
The damage from Hurricane Sandy takes our breath away. Many of our friends and followers are hurting as a result, and even though we can't personally be in touch with everyone, we're sending positive thoughts their way. As busy moms who always seem to be juggling something, we've been known to complain from time to time, but trust us when we say that you will never hear us complain again. Liz still has no power...but she's not complaining! On this week' show, we chat about the hurricane and how we prepared for it, offer another glimpse into Janice's kitchen renovation, and share a recipe for Pumpkin Gnocci. We hope you'll tune in.

Every autumn, farmers' markets and local farm stands display their finest seasonal vegetables: winter squash, pumpkins, sweet potatoes, and carrots. Over the weekend, dietitians from across the web had a chance to show off their best "orange" recipes as part of the monthly Recipe Redux blogger cooking challenge, and over 60 dietitians did just that. We joined the fun with a recipe for Orange Cauliflower Tex Mex Casserole. One dish that caught our eye (and our stomachs) came from Food Confidence, a blog written by fellow dietitian, Danielle Omar. So on this week's show, we serve up Danielle's hearty autumn Roasted Butternut Squash with Lentils and Walnuts recipe and offer umpteen reasons why it's a good idea to add nutrient-rich, orange foods to your family's diet. We hope you'll tune in...and we hope you'll eat more orange!

At this year's annual meeting of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, we sat in on educational session, met up with old and new friends, attended a food photography workshop, and sampled an array of better-for-you food products from both big and small food companies. We shared a bunch of highlights on this week's podcast, so tune in for all the food and nutrition news from FNCE 2012.
