Healthy recipes by KewlBites I am so honored to be working with the Alliance for a Healthier Generation! The Alliance is an amazing organization which was created in 2005 by the William J. Clinton Foundation and the American Heart Association, and we share the goal of inspiring kids (you and me included!) and families to take health into their own hands, and – most importantly – to make it fun! As a Champion for the Alliance, we’ve been visiting schools across the country seeing all the exciting, healthy changes schools have implemented in the cafeteria, on the track field, and in the gym, with the network of support and tools that the Alliance is providing to millions of people and thousands of schools in all fifty U.S. states.
REC(ession)IPES: Lemon Squares Makes 24 squaresTotal price: NY $2.02Price per square: NY $0.08 I’ll be honest: I didn’t love these and didn’t at first think them blog-worthy. When I mentioned to our guests that I wasn’t thrilled with these and apologized,* though, they all told me I was wrong and that they were delicious. Well, sure, duh, of course they would because our friends were not raised by wolves. I wasn’t fooled.
Praline Cheesecake with Hazelnut Crust Recipe by Sue Knechtel: Greely, Ontario, Canada as noted in Bon Appetit, November 1992, pages 194 & 196. Ingredients Directions The Dutch Table I just finished reading this month's issue of Saveur, a high quality magazine dedicated to all things food. It is one of my favorite monthly reads, with articles that focus on eats from all over the world, exotic recipes within reach and writers that offer great cultural backgrounds on dishes, traditions and tools. This month's cover boasts "90 Handheld Meals From Around The Globe" and an article about "World's Best Breads and Condiments": it's the Sandwich Issue. With the huge variety on sandwiches (broodjes) and bread toppings we have in Holland, I was convinced we would be mentioned at least in one, if not in both articles. After all, the sandwich plays such an important role in the Dutch food culture that there are not one but two national Tastiest Sandwich of the Year competitions.
Strawberry Smoothies Recipes You are here:Home»Strawberry Smoothies Strawberries are a favorite fruit of many. While their name includes “berry,” they actually aren’t a berry.

Lori's Skillet Smashed Potatoes Recipe I recently spent a weekend in the backwoods of Mendocino County. Let me emphasize that when I say backwoods, I'm not kidding. We're talking a few miles off the nearest paved road where a high-clearance 4x4 is a necessity, past numerous cleverly-rigged hydroponic hippie buses (this is clearly where old buses go to die), beyond a pack of car-chasing, fang-toothed guard dogs, and eventually down into the riverside sanctuary that is my friend Lori Narlock's cabin. Before I get into the details of our weekend, I'll just say (feeling more than a bit guilty), I hardly lifted a finger all weekend - Lori cooked for our cabin of six females, meal after delicious meal. Today I'm going to feature her skillet smashed potato recipe - first because they were delicious, and second to demonstrate how equal part thoughtfulness, experience, and prep work can culminate in delicious meals, even under rustic conditions. How rustic you might ask?

No cookie cutter? No problem: Easter Eggs Cookies Have I ever mentioned before that I love cookie cutters? Love ‘em! I have the basics, the funky and the unusual. Graduated circles? got ‘em. German Chocolate Fudge Cake - Lemon Sugar Oh, this cake. This cake. This cake made me say bad words today. See, I like to make my life extra-stressful sometimes. I’ve told you before that my Mom and Dad still have Sunday dinners at their house, and my siblings all get together and eat, play, act like we’re still kids and watch our own kids wreak havoc on my parent’s house once a week.
