Roasted Radicchio

I adore Radicchio, the bitterness and the bright red color make me happy.  They also signal nutrients that aren't widely consumed in the rest of my day so I work it in whenever I can.  My family tolerates it in small doses so I need a few tricks up my ...

Braised Beef

Thursday 24 March 2011 . (0)

You know those days when you think you have nothing in the fridge for dinner? I had a package of frozen beef short ribs, a few slices of pastrami, a half a little of chicken broth an onion and a head of kale.  What the heck can you make with that? Especially since I had. Continue Reading…

Quinoa Tabouli Salad

Monday 21 March 2011 . (1)

Traditionally Tabouli Salad is made with bulgur wheat but in the interest of gluten free and higher protein try swapping it with quinoa.  It will taste almost the same but each mouthful with provide a little bit more.  Make an extra cup of quinoa to use in a frittata later in the week!

Moroccan Chicken Tagine

Monday 21 March 2011 . (0)

Tagine is just a fancy word for stew or braise and the technique couldn’t be easier. Marinate meat in sweet spices, add dried fruit and stir in some chick peas.  This dish does very well in a slow cooker but I like to make it on the stovetop and in the oven because browning the. Continue Reading…

Tex Mex Steamed Salmon

Monday 14 March 2011 . (2)

Steaming is an ancient, low-fat way to quickly cook food and a $9 bamboo steamer basket is all you need.

Mayan Slow Cooker Pork

Tuesday 8 March 2011 . (0)

Ancient Mayan people have been hunting wild boar and simmering it with arrowroot (original tapioca) as well as wild thyme and pumpkin for centuries.  The early versions wouldn’t have had the benefit of bottled tomatillo sauce but we do! Be sure to choose very mild salsa if you substitute it for the salsa verdez, this. Continue Reading…

Versatile Sticky Brown Rice

Monday 7 March 2011 . (0)

Making the switch from white to brown is only a sticky problem if you ever started on white rice in the first place.  That said, I have had more success with choosing a short grain brown rice to convert fussy families to the good stuff.  Something about the sticky texture of the short grain is.

Better Spaghetti

Tuesday 1 March 2011 . (0)

Spaghetti is the quintessential family food and whether you choose to prepare the sauce with ground beef, ground turkey or use a meatless ground product, the opportunities are endless.  This recipe is adapted from my first book Cook Once a Week, Eat Well Everyday and it uses grated vegetables to bulk up and thicken the.
