I have an endless infatuation with Mediterranean salad recipes. For Dummies has a terrific primer of flavors from the Mediterranean coast ranging from the warm spices of Morocco (cinnamon, ginger, cumin and paprika), to the flavors of Greece (basil, dill, fennel, feta cheese, garlic, and oregano).
I jumped for joy when the nutrition world decided that eggs were no longer cholesterol villains. Eggs have been a long time weight management staple in my house. They’re low in calories, high in protein, and packed with nutrients (check out the link above if you don’t believe me). Besides, they’re completely delicious!
I’m on the lookout for super satisfying, healthy recipes all week long. As a food blogger, checking out what other cooks are up to comes with the job, and a task I completely enjoy.
You’ll find more than a few panini recipes in my sandwich repertoire. However, when it comes to expert panini making, apparently I missed the mark. According to Wikipedia, a true panini is not made from sliced bread, but with “ciabatta, rosetta and baguette.” But since when do I follow food rules.
Mug Cakes have made a re-appearance recently, and it’s fine by me. I like any treat that has automatic portion control. If I can enjoy myself without extras left for the next day, then my waistline is happy, and so am I.
A Mother’s Day breakfast in bed is every mom’s dream. You picture yourself sleeping so far past sunrise that you wonder if it’s lunchtime. The kids are taken care of, and you grab a good book to read while you soak in a tub you’ve filled with bubbles. Completely heaven!
