Recipe: Lemony Brussels Sprouts Slaw

Brussels sprouts are usually thought of as a veggie that needs cooking but they can be very delicious without any heat.  Sometimes I want an easy recipe, that doesn’t require too much “work” aka I want the directions to read: combine ingredients in bowl.  Eat and enjoy.  So, if you’re like me but still want […]

Myth: Pizza is a vegetable

TRUTH: We’ve all seen the recent, sensational headlines in the media that Congress declared pizza a vegetable last week and it’s simply not true.  This myth spread like wildfire in tweets and blogs everywhere.  So what’s the truth?  This all started because federally funded food and nutrition programs need to classify foods.  For instance, the […]

Crack, smack, dope and…coke?

I’m not referring to the white powdery drug cocaine but the sugary drink kind, known on the streets as Coca-Cola. (Insert dramatic music and blood curling scream here). Seriously people, this is not a joke. Ok, it’s kind of a joke. I’m not poking fun at those who crave sugar – it is totally legitimate […]

Recipe: Pumpkin Pie Pockets with Vanilla Cream

I’m a sucker for a vegetable dessert.  I am.  I used to swear by canned pumpkin for this recipe (not canned pumpkin pie, but canned pumpkin).  However, it’s very easy to use a real pumpkin the taste is so much better. Pumpkin Pie is often made with tons of cream and sugar (what’s not to […]

Recipe: Chestnut and Wild Mushroom Stuffing

I love stuffing when it has a nice crisp crust and a soft inner layer.  I like it hot, with gravy and cold, the next day, in a little panzanella-type salad with some cranberry relish.  Some Thanksgiving enthsiasts will tell you that cooking stuffing inside a bird is the only way to do it but […]

Myth: Coconut water is a must have for rehydrating

TRUTH:  Whether you’re talking about rehydrating from a hangover or rehydrating after a workout, coconut water’s popularity has gone from zero to 60 in only 5 years.  And by zero to sixty, I mean a $0 industry to $35 billion.  No joke.  When you push all the clever marking ploys aside, coconut water is…well, water […]

A Tale of Two Turkeys

In September of 1620, the passengers of the Mayflower set sail from England to Massachusetts.  The first year was difficult; they spent most of the winter on the ship and emerged around March when the weather improved.  Luckily for the Pilgrims, a Native American Indian, named Squanto, taught them to cultivate corn, fish, tap maple […]

Recipe: Roasted Mustardy Cauliflower

Cauliflower is an important winter vegetable that should not be overlooked. Though I’ve heard claims such as ‘it has no taste’ or ‘its boring’ – I beg to differ.  Cauliflower is a cruciferous vegetable and it’s available in white, orange, purple and green.  So, the colors don’t have to be monochromatic and the taste definitely […]
