Eggs, how do I love thee?
Seriously now, is there anything better than a roasted potato? Unless of course we are talking about mashed potatoes, then we might have something to debate about. As I have proclaimed here before I AM A POTATO HO and proud of it. It's hard not to be when they are so darn versatile.
This is one of the go-to dishes I make for my family of six.
Well folks, not much going on this week. I’m still 800 million degrees, which I guess is normal if you’re a human incubator. I’ve become a stretchy, elastic waisted pants spokesperson, because ohmygah maternity jeans are the most incredible thing I have ever worn , excepting for the sweat pants I model almost daily. (Seriously, they need to make jeans this comfortable for non-knocked up folks.) The weather has suddenly de-humidified itself and is now safe for this 800 million degree gal to go outside and actually enjoy it . And I had my first untamed, uncontrolled, almost explosive fire in the kitchen.
Sooner or later, all my conversations inevitably turn to food. Don’t believe me?
If you ask me, Nutella should be considered one of the four main food groups. This chocolate-hazelnut spread has it all: healthy fat and protein from nuts , heart-healthy antioxidants from the dark chocolate , a touch of sweetness to fulfill that...um...sugar requirement...okay, so it's not quite ready for a starring role on the food pyramid.
I’m sure you’ve heard of cakes that you make in a microwave in MINUTES.

Now, I have a chocolate chip cookie recipe that I swear by. I love it, I think it is incredible, and I haven’t changed my mind about that.

I think by now most of us know what should be on our dinner plate in terms of healthy, well-rounded nutrient-laden meals, but it is my considered opinion that our breakfast plate should include cinnamon rolls now and then.
One of my absolute favorite things is a Green Smoothie. It’s a fast, easy, and delicious way to get a big dose of vitamins and minerals, plus it tastes FANTASTIC!! Don’t let the color’s fool you!!
I was getting kind of sick of ordering delivery pizza (this happens at least 2-3 times a month). It was time to put a spin on gourmet pizza, but I just didn't know what it would be. Without pizza dough or an oven that is capable of creating the perfect pizza crust (I don't have an oven that can go up to a 1000 degrees), I decided I would use potatoes instead. This recipe is elegant enough to serve at a dinner party, but easy enough that you can cook it within 5-15 minutes. For 4 small, personal sized pizzas 4" in diameter, you will need:
Every winter Fresh Direct offers up bags of Meyer Lemons for just $2.99 each, and every year we find a new way to use them in the kitchen. The lemon is sweeter and lower in acid than other lemons, with a thinner peel. Here are some recipes we've tried out this year:
