Single Serving Lemon Poppy Seed Cake

Friday was my birthday.  While I had a lovely evening with my husband grabbing drinks, appetizers, and seeing a wonderful ballet, I did not get cake or blow out candles.  So the next morning, I decided to make myself a cake.  And because I didn’t want to be left with an entire cake to nibble…

Gluten-Free Stir Fry with Freezer Finds

Last Tuesday, our refrigerator broke. Luckily, we have a backup in the basement, but it is small and got filled to capacity with practically our condiment selection alone.  Needless to say, I did not go to the grocery store for additional produce to squeeze into the remaining space.  

How I Raised a Child Who Eats His Veggies

Before I go any further than the title, let me be clear: my son, like many other little kids, loves his treats and sweets.  And he doesn’t look at a salad and think “I’ve been wanting that all day! Thanks, Mommy!” HOWEVER…

Tea & Turmeric Latte

First of all, I am obsessed with the name I just titled this drink (there’s a lot more in there than tea and turmeric, by the way.)  I’m thinking a future YouTube channel where I chat with all my healthy friends about food trends? But I digress.

There was a small Moroccan restaurant in the East Village of New York City that my husband and I went to several times before he was actually my husband.  It is the only Moroccan restaurant I have ever eaten in to this day, but I have never forgotten the deliciousness of the famous “tagine.” (tuhJEEN)….

Paleo Cauliflower Wraps

The other day I got my 3 year old to eat cauliflower for breakfast without knowing it.  Sure, I put butter (grass-fed) and jelly (organic) on it, but he ate cauliflower.  For breakfast. And he didn’t know it. How did I do such a thing?  I magically turned the cauliflower into round, flat patties, sort…

Firecracker Noodles (Caitlin Style)

Tonight, we were supposed to have leftover chili.  But we had an impromptu trip to our local gourmet hot dog restaurant last night.  Thank you Franktuary!  While I didn’t have a grass-fed hot dog this time, I did devour their kale miso salad with local pastured kielbasa.  It was delicious.  I also had a decent…

First Post!

Hello!!  Welcome to my very first blog post for Caitlin’s Cupboard.  Let me take a moment to introduce myself.  My name is Caitlin.  And I have a cupboard. Obviously. I am a certified health coach, a licensed massage therapist and a health nut. I have worn many hats in this lifetime, but the Mom Hat…
