One of my favorite things about fall is apple season. Apples are crisp and sweet and make for a great grab-and-go snack. They are also packed full of cancer-protective nutrients like fiber and the flavonoid quercetin, an antioxidant that has anti-inflammatory properties.
This year I decided to do something different with my bundle of apples and make homemade fruit leather. Fruit leather is a great snack for any age, but is a particularly good kid-friendly alternative to fruit rollups.
Although most of us know the importance of eating a solid breakfast every morning, busy schedules can make it hard to set the time aside. Grabbing a bar or a banana can provide a quick fix, but often leave you feeling lethargic and hungry soon after.
Overnight oats are one of my weekday favorites because they are hearty and satisfying and can be grabbed while running out the door – even after hitting the snooze button a few extra times. They also only take 5 minutes of prep time the night before. Read more… “5-Minute Pumpkin Spice Overnight Oats”
“Let’s keep it nice and easy.” I’m with Frank Sinatra on this, in cooking as well as in love. To give fish big flavor, pan-searing filets coated with crushed black peppercorns is as nice and easy as it gets. Good for salmon and swordfish, it turns even bland tilapia into a treat. (Chicken cutlets and a lean cut of beef like iron steak like it as well.)
Chefs who obsess about ingredients go on about salt, specifying when to choose coarse or fine-grained salt and whether to use kosher, sea salt—and from which waters—or pink salt from the Himalayas. On pepper, “freshly ground” is pretty much all they say. Read more… “Nice and Easy, Fresh Peppers with Fish”
