Pork Tenderloin with Crimini Mushrooms and Port Sauce

Why is it that I never quite feel motivated to keep with my resolutions every January to stay healthy and exercise? Probably because it is cold and I have a rotation of kids home sick for a variety of ailments. This year was no different. Even worse as I was home sick with a variety […]

Healthy Breakfast: Baked Eggs with Kale and Mushrooms

Just a few days ago I looked at the calendar and realized that Christmas was on Tuesday and not on Wednesday. My kids were thrilled with this realization, but I went into full panic mode!

Quinoa: The Gluten-Free Thanksgiving Side Dish

If you haven’t noticed, I am on a quinoa-kick. I discovered this wonderful non-grain a few years back, but I didn’t really know how too cook with it or what to do with it. And so, the internet search began. It only took a few recipes for quinoa to receive my love and adoration. I’ve […]

Daring Cooks: The Incredible, Edible Container

We had a great challenge this month, something I’ve been experimenting with a lot, myself. The edible container. Maybe it was in college when I encountered my first taco salad in a crunchy tortilla bowl. Heaven! The nutritious salad cancelled the negative effects of the fried tortilla shell.
