We don’t cater to a specific diet, as we believe seasonal eating is inherently healthy and calls for everything in moderation. When something is picked locally, just a couple days before you eat it and it bursts with flavor, there is no need to compensate with unhealthy ingredients, but sometimes you just need some butter. Because butter makes everything better.
At the moment all of our subscriptions are catered to an omnivore diet, but because you can easily remove recipes from a Plan and add in a recipe from our catalog, substitutions are pretty easy. We generally try to avoid a large volume of dishes that include meat, dairy, or gluten when we’re creating our Curated Plans. If this is an important feature to you, please let us know.
Anca has reluctantly agreed to be “Goose” in Huckle & Goose, which makes Christine “Huckle.”
The site was concepted by co-founders Christine and Anca. The Colophon page has a list of all the wonderful people involved with bringing the site to life.

Meal plans are referred to as “Plans.” A Plan is simply a collection of recipes. A Curated Plan is a meal plan that Huckle & Goose has created (and carefully curated). Curated plans are named after the date they are released and are labeled with your Subscription type. You can reorder, duplicate, add or delete recipes from Curated Plans, but you cannot change the name.
A Personal Plan is a Plan that you have created, either from scratch or by duplicating a Curated Plan. You can view all of your Personal Plans by clicking/tapping the Plans link at the top of every page, and selecting “Personal Plans” in the sidebar.
Plans are sent out at around 12:01am EST on Fridays so they’re ready for you in the morning.

Search the fridge before you go grocery shopping. If you have an ingredient to use up, you can easily search for that ingredient in our database and add it to your plan.
Washing veggies right before dinner adds another 10-15 minutes to your prep. To save you time during the week, wash and properly store your farmers’ market loot right when you come home. Begin by washing all your herbs and greens and wrapping them in damp paper towels. Put them in a ziploc bag and store in the fridge. Do not wash your berries until right before you need them so they last longer. Store tomatoes at room temperature, not in the fridge or they’ll turn mealy and lose their flavor. For full guides on how to properly store produce, see here, here, and here.
When you have your shopping list for the week, take your petite entourage with you to the farmers’ market (don’t forget their totes). Exposing children to vegetables and fruits before they are cooked is a major piece of the my-child-is-not-a-picky-eater puzzle. Have them ask the farmer questions, let them choose their own veggies, ask them what colors they see, have them count the apples they put in their tote. If they realize that food doesn’t just magically appear on their plates and it requires hard work, time, and each one has its season, they may actually appreciate their peas and carrots.
