Two Fat Als » Green Tea Mint Lemonade
When I asked Alex what we should say about this soothingly refreshing beverage, he responded that we should call it a “delicious summer treat.” But for Al, everything is a delicious summer treat. I might have gotten the same response if I’d inquired about beer or grilled salmon. He loves all foods and beverages Summer. Who doesn’t? Me, for one. Predictably, this Green Tea Mint Lemonade is the exception. Ingredients (serves 6-8): 1/2 cup packed fresh mint 1 cup sugar 2 cups water, divided 1 cup fresh lemon juice 8 cups iced green tea (or other iced tea) Instructions:Combine mint leaves, sugar and 1 cup water in a small saucepan, then bring to a boil, stirring occasionally.

Chicken Noodle Soup - Sweet Potato Chronicles I'm a big believer in not feed­ing kids "kid food" — know what I mean? I never order from the kids' menu in restau­rants. I think a par­ent is their own worst enemy if they never allow their kid's palate to extend beyond noo­dles, cheese and ketchup (how my daughter's tastes run if left to her own devices). Why not add dijon mus­tard to the sauce? Hey, why not chilis for that mat­ter? Now, how I actu­ally behave.… yep, it's another story. pho­tos: Maya Vis­nyei It's hard on a per­son. I think the key to soup for small chil­dren is either going for some­thing smooth and creamy that will cling to the spoon, like black bean or mush­room, or if you're mak­ing a broth-y soup, make the pieces of meat and veg­etable small enough to be picked up by a small spoon. Chicken Noo­dle Soup Method In a large pot, sautee onion, gar­lic, car­rots, cel­ery, thyme and bay leaf in olive oil over medium heat until soft, about 6 minutes. Add stock and allow to boil.

Easy Homemade Granola January 26, 2009 | By Adam Roberts | 36 Comments Now that I’m a health guru you might suspect that I made granola last week because of my new fitness regimen. But you’d be wrong, very wrong indeed; I made granola last week because of the newest cookbook in my collection, a gorgeous cookbook that I bought for my friend Lisa’s 30th birthday and that I secretly wished I’d kept for myself. But then the publisher offered to send me a review copy and I was in heaven. The book in question is “Baked: New Frontiers in Baking” by Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito of the Baked Bakery in Red Hook and next to Martha Stewart’s Baking Book this may quickly become my favorite baking book in my collection. Granola? The answer, I suppose, is that I’ve never really found a granola that I love. No, I was looking for a life long commitment here.
