Years ago I would often have people over for dinner. We called these events dinner parties, and I would usually invite anywhere between two to five couples. I would spend all day in the kitchen, cooking up a storm and still be busy when the company arrived…
I love the changing of the seasons. Don’t you? This time of year I get to pull out my flannel shirts and thick socks, which after a summer of bare shoulders and toes feels cozy and warm.
What if I told you there was a healthy chocolate mousse recipe? No “what if?” There is, and I’m sharing it right here, for free!
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.
