I have to admit I do not cook pasta very often, except in the summer as it makes an easy and inexpensive dinner. With today’s rising food prices, I think about what we eat. This is actually quite easy as my husband shops the bargains.
Soup isn’t just for winter, though a bowl of hot soup on a cold day always sounds comforting and wonderful.
I make hot soups during the summer because my husband loves soup. I have a few soups that are suitable served cold or at room temperature. My soups often have lots of veggies and different beans.
I have to admit that I rarely make desserts. We get our sugar fix with fruit, but every once in a while I decide it is time to enjoy a real dessert. Most of the desserts I do create include fruit, as it is a healthy and delicious way to get our servings of fruit.
It is so important for all of us to nourish our bodies with healthy choices in food. Being health oriented, I have spent years researching different foods, making sure we get adequate vitamins and minerals in our diet.
It does seem like every so often a new type of diet is created, books are written, new recipes online and a new way to boost sales of different foods emerge.
With summer here, are you looking for ways to eat well without heating up the kitchen? Salads are great, but if you’re pretty active you need something more substantial than lettuce, tomatoes and cucumbers to keep your energy up.
The long, warm days of summer have arrived. There’s no better way to spend them than sipping your favorite beverage with friends, outdoors. As for me, I always love a refreshing seasonal cocktail.
There are many specific diets you can select from depending on your health issues, choice or desired weight.
One of the nice things about getting a little older is that you finally have time to focus on your passions. In the kitchen, this means that you have the freedom to break away from the dishes that you are famous for and try something a little more surprising.
