Welcome to In the Kitchen!

I’m Julie – a chef, registered dietitian and cookbook author with a HUGE passion for food and good cooking.

I believe the best way to eat well is by cooking with whole food ingredients, preparing them in simple ways and enjoying food in community. My cooking style is fresh, wholesome, comforting and all-inclusive. My greatest passion is helping others build confidence in the kitchen and taking the “chore” out of cooking, one recipe at a time.

So join me In the Kitchen! I'll be using this space to share recipes, cooking videos and photos of goodies I create to support us being healthier together.

Stick around – you’ll find something new and delicious each week!

Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

It’s a new year, but my love for hummus hasn’t faltered. I’ve been making this recipe for years now, and it never disappoints (if I decide to share). The best part – besides eating it – is the fact that all ingredients are tossed together in a food processor and blended until smooth and creamy.…

Mashed Cinnamon Winter Squash

If you’re looking for a dynamic side dish with simple ingredients that’s also simple to make, look no further. This mashed winter squash is creamy, earthy and slightly sweet with a burst of cinnamon, and it couldn’t be more delicious.
