I’m writing this from the local coffee shop where I’m enjoying some special time with my daughter, Nicole. What could make the day more wonderful? Well, how about knowing that there’s a tasty beef chili with bacon simmering away in the slow cooker
Happy New Year! I hope you had a wonderful holiday. I’m kicking off the new year with this savory chicken stir fry that’s flavored with a beautiful medley of Indian spices.
It’s the day before Christmas Eve, and I’m officially in holiday mode as I plan the upcoming Christmas meals. If you’re looking for a last-minute, extra-special recipe for your holiday table,
This quick and easy ragoût is one of my favorite go-to meals on busy days. I usually workout at 5:00 in the evening. After an intense workout, the last thing I feel like doing is spending a lot of time cooking dinner. So on workout days, I either prepare dinner in the morning and set it in the slow cooker or I turn to one of my recipes that come together fast, like this incredibly tasty ragoût.

When I was a child, I remember my mom bringing home an unusual fruit one day. It looked a little like an apple but not exactly. She said it was a Chinese apple. I didn’t know it at the time but that was the British term for pomegranates. She was so excited to show it…
Autumn in New York usually means a slight chill in the air, a visit to the pumpkin patch or apple orchard, and afternoon walks to admire the vibrant fall foliage. It doesn’t mean softly falling snow. But this morning I looked out the window only to see that it was snowing. I’m not ready for winter yet! Thankfully, the tiny snowflakes soon turned into rain.
I’m so excited to share this recipe with you today! These pork chops are mouthwateringly tender and cooked over a bed of sweet carrots and onions in the most intense savory gravy. The flavor is like a gourmet meal, but your slow cooker does almost all the work for you. And that also means that there isn’t a pile of pots and pans to clean up after dinner.
Quick one pan meals are one of the best time-saving strategies for getting healthy meals on the table on busy weeknights. This quick one pan, Spanish style chicken with cauliflower rice is super easy and big on flavor.
Sometimes recipes are born in times of adversity. That’s how this easy paleo chicken with baby spinach and mini sweet peppers entered the world. I had planned to roast a turkey breast for dinner. But when I turned on the oven, I heard a pop! Hmmm….That didn’t sound good. I also noticed the power to the stove had gone out. Obviously, the breaker had tripped. I reset the breaker, but when I turned the oven on, again I heard that pop! That was it. My oven was dead.
Who doesn’t love a good massage? Well, my kale is loving one right now as I’m getting ready to prepare a delicious kale salad tossed with pistachios, cherry tomatoes, and juicy Kalamata olives. But why am I massaging the kale first? If you’ve ever had a raw kale salad, you might have noticed that the kale was a little bitter and its texture a little coarse. However, if you massage the kale for only about five minutes, it will begin to soften and wilt. This seems to break down its dense cellulose structure leaving it easier to digest and much tastier.
Potatoes are a real comfort food and what better way to enjoy them in the summertime but in a rich, creamy potato salad? There’s just something about a cool dish of potato salad that makes a summer meal a true delight. At the same time, though, I used to shy away from eating potato salad. I used to think something this tasty couldn’t be good for me. After all, it’s potatoes and mayonnaise. We all know what potatoes do to our waistline, right? And commercially prepared mayo is processed with all kinds of ingredients that we really don’t want to eat. Fear not!

I rarely eat pasta anymore so I usually quickly pass by the pasta aisle of my local natural organic grocery store. Since going on a gluten free diet, I just never was thrilled with the taste of gluten free pasta. Maybe I just have high standards when it comes to pasta. Before going gluten free, I ate…
