We’ve been eating quite a lot of salad lately, and being the protein addict that I am, I’m constantly looking for new ways to make it into a full dinner.
I was first introduced to Chinese Chicken Salad years ago, by my dear friend Helen. We’ve been friends now for close to 30 years and good salad is only one of the many things she has taught me about. My version is a little different from hers, since she’s not gluten ... read more →

With a few edits to the classic Cobb, this tasty traditional salad becomes nutritious high protein fare packed with healthy veggies. This Cobb Salad is a great make ahead dish. Prepare individual ingredients earlier in the day or the night before and then assemble the salad just before serving.
Traditionally, blue cheese is one of the main ingredients in Cobb Salad, however, I’ve eliminated this ingredient to create a delicious dairy-free dinner. Of course, Cobb Salad is traditionally gluten-free, so that was ... read more →

Are you spending too much time on the computer? That’s a question I’ve been asking myself a lot lately. After reading this article in The Atlantic and finding out about this new site that calculates the amount of time spent on twitter, I’ve really been pondering this matter.
I haven’t been pondering it too much though. Instead, last weekend, I took a break and left my computer off for 48 hours. Wow, I did have quite a surprise on Monday morning, ... read more →

With baseball back in the picture and our afternoons filled with practices I find myself looking for quick entrees that offer a lot of protein without a lot of work. This Chipotle Lime Salmon is one of those. My husband loved it, pronouncing it blog-worthy after his first bite. Continue reading

Mushrooms are one of my favorite foods. I bought some recently on a trip to the store, though I had no idea what would become of them.
The next day I took out one of my favorite cookbooks, A Cook’s Book of Mushrooms and began to flip through the pages. I found a great recipe, made a few changes (replacing sugar with stevia, etc.) and whipped it up for dinner. Although it looks complicated and has a few steps, this recipe ... read more →

Fun and easy dishes will include chocolate chip cookies, double chocolate brownies, currant scones and apple crisp.

Leftover turkey? I opened the fridge this morning and noticed I still had a pile of cooked bird from Thanksgiving. While I am more than happy to have a surplus of food during these times, I must admit, I was perplexed as to what to do with it.
Turkey chili of course. Here’s a recipe that I threw together, literally, in the crockpot. Feel free to adapt this chili to your liking and make it up as you go along, like ... read more →

It’s too darn hot here to turn on the oven; the high today is supposed to get up to 100°. The solution? Fire up the grill and throw on some chicken breasts ever so briefly. The mustard lime chicken pictured above is a tangy hit of protein on a hot summer’s day.
I hope it cools off a bit tomorrow as my son plays in the finals of the little league tournament. His team (the “B” team ... read more →

My favorite thing about the picture above? The cilantro on the Mango Chicken and in the glass cup is from my garden. Now, that’s something to get pumped about considering I barely have a yard. And what little yard I do have is taken over by a trampoline for the boys.
We live close to town which was really important to me after living in Manhattan for 17 years. I wanted to be able to walk to ... read more →

As some of you know, I write an op-ed column for The Daily Camera, covering political, economic and environmental issues. As we face increasing food prices and shortages worldwide, food becomes a more important aspect of such aforementioned matters.
This week, my column was called, The Politics of High Fructose Corn Syrup. In it, I discussed our government’s gigantic corn subsidy and our country’s growing waistlines. When I awoke this morning, my husband asked if I had received ... read more →

I have discovered a great new website, myfeasts.com. I found it through tastespotting.com, my all time favorite site. If you ever find yourself in a “dinner quandary,” I highly recommend a visit to tastespotting; the photos are gorgeous and provide much meal planning inspiration!
Alas, I digress, this post is about myfeasts.blogspot.com. The site is a bit of a mystery, as I could not find an “about” page. Was I just missing it? Or is ... read more →

You missed the Orange Ginger Chicken…
This Paleo/primal-friendly Orange Ginger Chicken recipe is a great way to roast an entire chicken. The recipe is also child friendly –Orange Ginger Chicken is my younger son’s all time favorite dinner recipe.
My husband called and said he had to work late tonight. However, the boys and I were much too hungry to wait. So, before we ate, I snapped a photo of dinner and emailed it to him. I kept a plate ... read more →
