During the land’s wintry deep sleep, when the hardy greens of spring are only garden plans on a page, I turn my culinary and nutritional attention to root vegetables. They’re what’s in season, and I love them all. Roasted carrots, parsnips, beets and sunchokes. Baked and stuffed russet potatoes. Celery root salad. But the sweet [...]

Real Maple Syrup Facts and Recipes

Growing up, I used to drown my mom’s fluffy pancakes in a sea of Log Cabin® Syrup. The “other” syrup, the tiny bottle of amber-hued “real” maple syrup stayed in the pantry. It was expensive, and was brought out only for the occasional recipe calling for it. It wasn’t until I was grown and cooking [...]

Breast Cancer Fighting Walnut, Barley and Greens Vegetable Soup

You’ve probably heard the stats. About 1 in 8 American women will develop invasive breast cancer at some point in their life. What you may not have heard is that what you eat can dramatically improve those odds. This week I made a vegetable soup from one of Candice Kumai’s recipes in her new book [...]

End of Summer Skillet Vegetable Salad

Toward the end of summer, when the days are still hot and farm fresh vegetables are abundant, a healthy dinner can be fast and easy. I love this skillet salad. Chopped and diced fresh vegetables are quickly seared in a smokin’ hot cast iron skillet, then tossed with a cilantro-lime dressing. By adding a can [...]

Fast Food’s Impact on School Kids’ Grades

If you have a school-age child, you are likely doing much to help them succeed. You read with them, double check their homework, and offer emotional support. You attend parent-teacher conferences and review grades and test scores. You don’t want your child to just “pass” to the next grade. You want your child to excel [...]
