I needed a recipe that would use a bunch of veggies harvested from my garden, so I came up with this refreshing orzo salad that is both colorful and crunchy. A very refreshing vegetarian salad for those hot summer days.
You know what? I realized the other day that since I started my blog one month ago, I didn’t post any single recipe featuring meat. But don’t get me wrong, I am no vegetarian. I don’t feel the need to eat some every day, but I do love meat. To prove that to you, I wanted to share this ...

This is the bowl of vegetarian ramen I've been working towards ever since I first ventured into the vegetable-based foothills of Mount Ramen two years ago. It has a rich, creamy broth that's layered with flavor and thick enough to coat the noodles as they're slurped from the bowl, plus little pools of glistening, flavorful fat, and four different toppings that deliver on texture and flavor. This is hands-down the best bowl of ramen I've ever made. And it can all be yours, with a little bit of heavy-duty climbing, that is.
Hey Everyone! How are you liking my Healthy Habits blogs so far? Did anyone try out the GNC protein shake I recommended? As promised in my Healthy Habits: My Typical Meal Plan post, here is the recipe for my all-time favorite meal for dinner: almond chicken. It's super healthy and it's really easy to make (remember, if I can make it anyone can). I found this recipe online over a year ago and have been loving it ever since! It makes me think I'm eating fried chicken fingers, but it's actually just healthy chicken breast breaded in wheat flour and almonds. Put it this way-my 8 year old sister devours these like she would a McDonalds Happy Meal, but they're healthy! I make this recipe at least once a week. It keeps well for a few days in the fridge so I usually just heat them up on a cookie sheet in the oven when I want the leftovers. I cannot explain how yummy it is to eat yet easy it is to make. Like I said, I've made it at least once a week for over a year now (OK, I'll admit it, it's one of the only things I actually can cook) so it's like second nature for me to whip these up. Here's the whole recipe (serves 4) courtesy of EatingWell.com:Ingredients Canola oil cooking spray 1/2 cup sliced almonds 1/4 cup whole-wheat flour 1 1/2 teaspoons paprika 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper 1 1/2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil 4 large egg whites 1 pound chicken tenders Instructions Preheat oven to 475
It's hard to believe that we're already in February. I don't know about you, but I've had quite the crazy start to the new year. My work life has been busier than ever, filled with restaurant photo shoots, corporate headshots
Cabbage is a satisfying vegetable to grow in the garden like carrots and parsnips. It is relatively undemanding and available from July on in the garden. In the fall after hard frost, when you have harvested everything from the garden, it will keep in the fridge for at least a month. We consider it a staple, like carrots or onions, that we almost never have to buy.Cabbage, by many, is considered a poor man's vegetable and thus there are millions of recipes from around the world for wonderful cabbage soups. The following was inspired by the Frugal Gourmet Cooks with Wine, with my adaptations.
