Lentil Stuffed Peppers We were heading back to my daughter’s dance studio when my son stopped to tell me he had three reasons why he was lucky: 1. I have the food I need. 2. My family. 3. A happy heart. Three simple things. 3 Reasons I Am Lucky You can hear him for yourself…and if you listen through to the end, you will also hear me trying to figure out how to work Evernote. What’s most important is a happy heart, mama. Kermit the Frog. Naturally. The same frog who brought us rainbow connections has taught my children a valuable lesson that many adults overlook. I thought of rainbows as I sautéed vegetables to create the filling for these Lentil Stuffed Peppers. Yield: Serves 4.Prep Time: 20 minutesCook Time: 30 minutesTotal Time: 50 minutes The term "eat the rainbow" comes to mind when I made these Lentil Stuffed Peppers: it's chock full of colorful vegetables, plus nutrient rich lentils, it can be a side dish or a meatless meal on its own.

How to Make Kettle Corn Without a Kettle | Food52 If you're like us at Food52, you look to the seasons for what to cook. Get to the market, and we'll show you what to do with your haul. Today: The snack everyone wants to eat this time of year -- and how to do it with only 4 ingredients and no special equipment. Kettle corn is a multigenerational food, much like peanut butter and chicken fingers. (Before you disagree with me about the latter, try to tell me you wouldn't eat these.) It's a food you can make with your kids, for them -- on top of them, if you're Nicholas Day. You can give it to your kids before, during, or after they trick-or-treat tomorrow. If you do not have these ingredients in your pantry already, you will get them. I bet you're wondering where the seasonal ingredients are, and why, if I wanted to give you nostalgia-inducing seasonal fair food, I didn't just give you caramel apples. Kettle Corn Serves 4 to 6 1/4 cup neutral oil (like vegetable)1/4 cup sugar1/2 cup popcorn kernels 1 teaspoon coarse salt, or to taste

The Easiest Thanksgiving That Anyone Can Make BEAN BOWLS WITH POACHED EGGS I used to journal all the time. It helped me process. Especially in high school when boyfriend problems were a huge deal, you fought constantly with your mother, and who gets to ask who to the winter formal dance was high drama. A girl's got to get through those hard times. Journaling made thoughts and feelings seem legitimate once they were down on paper. Later, I started journaling in letter format, writing in a voice as though someone may read my words. Writing here has taken the place of the writing I used to do for me. This is a simple, modest bowl of a meal. P.S. BEAN BOWLS WITH POACHED EGG // Serves 4 The texture comes out like a stew and you want some of the liquid to be in the pot. I cooked my beans from scratch and drained off the excess liquid before adding the broth from there. Drain and rinse the beans from soaking. Add the sweet potato to the warm beans, give it a stir and cover the pot. Bring a large pot of salted water with a splash of vinegar to a low boil.
9 Tips To Be More Professional in The Office Being more professional in the office can help you in many ways. You can gain respect from others, and it can help with being promoted. Read nine of my biggest tips on being more professional at work. Consider The Dress Code There’s usually a dress code set for a workplace. This is different for men and women, and can be different for each company. If a company has a dress code that states employees must at least wear pants and a collared shirt in the office, then I would suggest wearing suit pants and a dress shirt. Work More Than The Minimum Hours Most offices usually have a minimum working time period. The ability to do this will depend on your commitments outside of work. Maintain a Professional Attitude Being professional at work is not just about arriving on time and dressing appropriately. This means what you think about and what you say should be considerate of your work environment. Arrive On Time to Meetings Meetings at work are common. Separate Personal Time and Work Time
How to repurpose your old iPad It's no big secret that Apple will take the wraps off a couple of new iPads tomorrow , most likely an updated full-size model and perhaps a Retina Display-enhanced iPad Mini . If you're planning to buy one of them, you may find yourself pondering what to do with your current iPad. Sure, you can make back a few bucks by selling it on Craigslist or eBay, but maybe it would make more sense to hang onto it. After all, an iPad can do some pretty cool stuff when you dedicate it to a specific task or set of tasks. Here are my picks for how to extend the life of your old iPad: 1. The digital photo frames of yesteryear were small, low-resolution, and a pain in the neck. You can see this in action via the iPad's built-in Picture Frame mode , which instantly creates a slideshow using photos from your albums, Camera Roll, Photo Stream, or a combination. 2. You may not think of your iPad as a music machine, as that big screen would seem to lend itself more to books, movies, games, and the like. 3. 4.
Soba Noodles with Peanut Dressing, Cucumbers and Scallions | My pantry is cluttered with odd ingredients, a reflection of impulse purchases made after seeing recipes for “ultimately authentic” dishes I feel I have to make immediately. As I often don’t make these dishes immediately, I end up collecting tubs of tamarind concentrate and palm sugar (purchased for pad thai) and shrimp paste (for satay sauce) and fermented black beans (for mapo tofu). Often these ingredients sit untouched for months (years), or they get dipped into, stashed in the fridge, forgotten, and ultimately unnecessarily re-purchased when I see that next completely authentic recipe I have to make immediately. It’s a vicious cycle. A few unseasonably hot days last week had me craving chilled soba noodles with dashi, a favorite summer meal I first tried at Morimoto, where they make it with green tea soba noodles — SO good. This Virginia spring has come on strong, sparking the onset of diminished motivation in the kitchen much earlier than usual. soba noodles, dried or fresh 1. 2.
