Summer Shrimp and Pineapple Stir-Fry

By Posted on Leave a comment on Summer Shrimp and Pineapple Stir-Fry
Stir-fries have always been one of my staple dinners. They are quick, versatile, and pack a variety of flavors and textures into a one-pot meal. Moreover, they are typically full of nutritious ingredients. Stir-fries are made up of mostly vegetables, making it easy to follow AICR’s cancer-protective New American Plate model: fill 2/3 of your plate with plant-based food and 1/3 or less is animal food.

    Herb Roasted Turkey Breast with Vegetables: Thanksgiving Made Simple

    By Posted on Leave a comment on Herb Roasted Turkey Breast with Vegetables: Thanksgiving Made Simple

    A couple of years ago I wrote about making a AICR’s Thanksgiving porchetta-style turkey breast, as an alternative to cooking a full turkey. I loved the flavorful spices in this dish and the ease of making a turkey breast instead of an entire turkey; it saved time and it works well for a smaller crowd.

    This year I wanted to make a more simplified twist on that same recipe and make a one-pot Thanksgiving turkey that also included vegetables. This roasted vegetable and herbed turkey dish is packed full of flavor, easy to make, and is a healthier version of your traditional Thanksgiving meal.

      Easy Meal Prep for Holiday Cioppino

      As we head into holiday season, now’s a good time to start thinking ahead about menu planning. One of the most stressful things about holiday meals is the pressure to cook a big meal (often with multiple courses) for a group. You are faced with timing the cooking of multiple dishes, ensuring you are meeting the dietary preferences of multiple people, and (most importantly) making sure it all tastes good. This can all be a little daunting.

      This year I plan to make one of my favorite holiday dishes: a traditional Italian-American Cioppino. Cioppino, also referred to as a “fisherman’s stew,” originated in San Francisco and includes a variety of fish and shellfish in a flavorful tomato-based broth. I love making this dish during holiday season because it is a nice, lighter alternative to the more common poultry and red meat dishes. It is also always a crowd-pleaser, and looks far more complex than it really is. Read more… “Easy Meal Prep for Holiday Cioppino”
