Back in the land of really flat states, beef is the go-to protein for any meal that’s not chicken. Soy products and tofu are looked upon with something akin to suspicion – people who eat these things and enjoy them are considered colorful at best and possibly socialists at worst. Because of these attitudes, I […] Read More

The benefits of eating an organic diet are widely known, the part that’s never talked about is how to afford it. Organic food is more expensive that non – and there’s really no avoiding that fact. When deciding how to spread the grocery budget around, the way to get the most bang for your organic […] Read More

When I was in college, I fell in with a rough crowd of vegetarians. They had an interesting outlook on food – after giving up meat for a variety of perfectly valid reasons, they then filled their diets – not with fruits and vegetables – but with various fake meat products. Eating with them was […] Read More

Box-free macaroni and cheese

A friend of mine, who should really know better, recently discovered that she doesn’t know how to cook. Turns out, boiling water and opening a box doesn’t really help with, say, baking. It’s also not good when trying to switch to a diet with less processed foods and processed foods are the only kinds you […] Read More

Cinnamon rolls a day ahead

Nothing is better than waking up to aroma of fresh, hot cinnamon rolls drifting through the house. Warm, slightly spicy, gooey, delicious. Unfortunately, getting up extra early to make the dough, let it rise, roll, cut and bake them negates the luxury of fresh breakfast rolls. And cinnamon rolls from a can are just sad. […] Read More

Nuts in a bowl

For reasons best known only to the same person who decides which skirt lengths are fashionable, spiced nuts have been deemed a “winter holidays only” snack. As someone who loves nuts in pretty much all their forms, this seems very unfair – to both me and the nut industry as a whole. Having a craving […] Read More

Kale for the end of winter

This is a good time of year for soup. This is also a good time of year to have a recipe on hand that can be cooked in one pot on any heat source in a fairly quick amount of time. In the event of a power outage, having something to whip up can be […] Read More

Show of hands from everyone who resolved to eat healthier in 2011. Even if you didn’t raise your hand, having another way to get whole grains into your diet is never a bad thing. The latest government food pyramid recommends that we all make “half our grains whole”, which is always good advice no matter […] Read More

Somewhere between the Christmas parties and New Year’s Eve, a person still has to eat one or two regular meals. Since time is of the essence for most of us, a filling, quick side dish is always a good addition to the recipe collection. The lemon orzo pasta below is a great option for a […] Read More

A gingerbread treat for Santa

It has long been proven that the area of the brain that holds our memories is very near the area that processes scents. Which is why certain scents can transport us back in time to the first day of school, a swimming pool on a hot summer day or our grandma’s kitchen during the hoildays. […] Read More
