EatingWell: Worried About Food Dyes? 4 Tips to Avoid Them By Brierley Wright, M.S., R.D., EatingWell Nutrition Editor When you consider how many fake-colored foods abound, especially “kid-friendly” ones, I guess it’s not so surprising that Americans are now eating five times as much food dye as we did in 1955. (Think beyond candy to rainbow-colored breakfast cereals, electric-blue yogurts and fluorescent drinks.) Portobello Mushroom Burgers (in the oven) I have somewhat been neglecting my 2012 kitchen creation bucket list. Looking for quick and healthy ideas for supper tonight, I went back to the list. How great to cheer up this rainy day than portobello mushroom burgers! I’m not dedicated enough to flip these babies on the BBQ so I’m grilling the burgers in the oven. image source: 4 portobello mushrooms 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar 2 tbsp olive oil 1 tsp dried parsley 1 tbsp minced garlic salt/pepper

Store-bought carbonara sauce can taste good, minus the guilt from the purist in you. There will be times when you will painstakingly make the perfect carbonara sauce from scratch.

I was a little bit worried when I saw people saying that it took 18 hours to make fruit leather in an oven, but it only took mine a little bit under 5 hours. Not too bad!

Meathead Goldwyn: Making Chinese Char Siu Pork or Ribs at Home is Easy I love love love the "barbecued" pork and ribs in Chinatown. They have a distinct pork flavor, a glossy sheen that implies the sweet glaze beneath, and a glowing red-pink color that penetrates the surface. Unlike traditional Southern American low and slow smoke roasted barbecue, there is no smoke flavor, even though there is a pink ring beneath the surface of the meat. How do they do it? The Best Grilled Portobello Mushroom Burgers I set out to make a great tasting grilled portobello mushroom burger that even a meat lover would love. The mushrooms are marinated then grilled and topped with melted Swiss Cheese, grilled red onion, tomatoes, spinach, and avocado – yum!! The only thing my husband said would make these burgers better is adding bacon... maybe next time. I wanted to give the mushrooms a meaty flavor, so I marinated them with balsamic, soy sauce and Montreal steak seasoning. These were so good, perfect for meatless Mondays or any night of the week.
