As soon as my youngest son gets off the bus, he is starving, so every afternoon I make him a hearty snack. It's actually gotten a bit out of hand and I can blame no one but myself. I started out with simpler snacks, but somehow snack time has evolved into a major event each day. Some of my son's favorite after school snacks include Buffalo Chicken Dip, Skinny Spinach Dip and Hot Chili Cheese Dip. Of course, there are days when I'm feeling a bit lazy and just lay out a plate with cheese, crackers … [Continue Reading...]

Extra virgin olive oil, which is cold-pressed only once, … [Continue Reading...]

[rss-cut] Burma (or Myanmar) is the largest country in mainland Southeast Asia, and is surrounded on its borders by Indian, China and Thailand.

This Ghanaian Black Eye Pea Curry is sweet and spicy, perfect served over a bowl of rice. After the flurry of our Christmas Eve Open House, celebrating the holiday season with family and friends, and some much needed downtime in warmer weather, I am trying to get back into some sort of routine. I've been laying low since the New Year, reflecting on the year that just passed, and the year ahead of us.  I no longer make New Year resolutions - instead, I seek inspiration for the coming year … [Continue Reading...]
