Comin' at you live, from New England, it's…


I’m Katrina, the fiery, sarcastic redhead behind The Northeast Ginger.

I hate how fake social media has made us as a society, and it drives me insane that most bloggers only put their best self in public view. I’m here to change that.

My style of writing is authentic AF because quite simply, it’s not my job to sugar coat shit for you; I’m not Willy Wonka.

Yes, my content has swears in it (oh, the horror!!!) but that’s the real me. And the good news is that if it’s not your thing, there’s a million other blogs to choose from.

You still with me? Awesome. So let’s jump right in to the introduction part.

Guest Recipe: The Primal Food Dude’s Keto Chaffles

Hey readers! Anthony here, or as I’m better known: The Primal Food Dude (Follow my cooking and Dad adventures on IG @theprimalfooddude). I’m a chef, restaurant owner, health coach and I happen to be married to the owner of this blog, The Northeast Ginger. If you’re new to the Keto World, you’ve probably never heard […]

Recipe: Spaghetti Squash Lasagna

I love spaghetti squash because it’s a nutritious vessel for just about anything! It makes a great pasta substitute, has important nutrients like folate (a key nutrient for pregnancy) and it’s pretty affordable. Today we’ll use one squash as a base for lasagna and we’ll end up with four adult servings, plus 1-2 younger kid […]

Recipe: Buttermilk Ranch Dressing

One of my goals for 2022 is to make all my own dressings + condiments, like this homemade Buttermilk Ranch ✨ In our house, we live by the 80/20 rule, which is, “eat clean, grass-fed, organic + wholesome 80% of the time; eat whatever the fuck feels right 20% of the time.” It is a […]

Recipe: Feta-Cucumber Dressing

If you’re still using store bought dressing, you’re doing it wrong. The majority of conventional dressings are full of harmful shit like artificial dyes, seed oils and sugar. What’s the point in eating a salad if you’re just covering it in ingredients that fuel inflammation and disease within your body? Can you find a handful […]

Recipe: Steak + Cheese Style Sloppy Joe Bowls

If you’re looking for an easy fall meal packed with nutrients, I got you boo: Steak + Cheese Style Sloppy Joe Bowls. You could easily serve this on a roll, if that’s your thing. I served ours with some homemade “chips” – take 1/2 a Japanese Sweet Potato sliced thin into rounds, coat in butter […]

Recipe: Beef + Butternut Stew

If you have a crock pot, you’re one step closer to being able to cook a nutrient-dense meal for your family. I prefer to use a cast iron dutch oven, but if I weren’t home all day, I’d opt for a crock pot. Simply add these ingredients to your pot + cook. Boom. Hearty, nutritious […]

Murder She Read: How To Join My Virtual Book Club

When I was in my 20s, me and a couple of my pals used to get together to get drunk, and instead of being honest about the binge drinkers we were, we’d tell everyone we were at a book club meeting. Cuz that’s way more believable? Now that I’m in my 30s, I’m like, “hi, […]

15 Easy Ways to Declutter Your Life in 2022

Have you ever had a long, stressful day at work, only to be reminded when arriving home that you left your house in complete disarray? Dishes in the sink, dishwasher needing to be emptied, trash that needs to be taken out, mountains of laundry to do, dinner to make…Doesn’t it all feel utterly overwhelming? That’s […]

Murder She Read: September Book Discussion

There’s nothing quite like cozying up under a blanket while you dive into a good book. And with the recent change in weather, I’ve found reading to be particularly enjoyable. But I’m not going to lie to you…this most recent book just didn’t do it for me. Have no idea what I’m talking about? Check […]
