Gremlins, I Mean Ghrelins -- 04/22/2011

I hope you had a chance to watch the video I made last week of Pandy and me making pan seared fish and wilted spinach salad in her kitchen.  Cooking with friends is fun, just like lots of other things that friends do together, so I hope you give it a try yourself. (No, that is not us!) In the process we made a delicious, healthy meal and sat down to eat it with place mats and quiet conversation like good little girls.  But today I wanted to discuss something I started to talk about on theOrange Tree Lane blogsite last week..somthing a little more sinister than the pretty visual picture just painted for you.

The Inflammation Trigger -- 04/20/2011

It’s getting personal.  I ran into an old friend, an old neighbor, and found out that a mutual friend in his mid fifties died suddenly and unexpectantly of a stroke last year.  I can still picture the last time I saw him, which was about that long ago… his fit and trim form, talking about how proud he was of his kids and happy with a great job.

I could easily be a vegetarian, but I cook for some hard core carnivores so red meat once or twice a week is my compromise. It’s not usually my favorite night for dinner, but I didn’t remember how good the Rubbed Steak with Polenta was until I tried it again this year. It’s so good and simple to make that I’m going to make it for dinner guests next time!  This week enchiladas sounded really good so I entered “enchiladas” in the search bar on the recipe page and then picked one of the recipes that came up so I could improve and include it in the weekly menu.  I ended up making some improvements to the Easy Beef and Kale Enchiladas that I hope you will like, one of them being the option to use chicken. I’ve been wondering also how to avoid buying $3.69 boxes of organic chicken broth and was so excited to try something new.

Little Helpers for Big Heros -- 04/06/2011

It’s May 26, 1940 and Hitler is coming to annihilate 340,00 British troops cornered on the coast of Dunkirk, France.  King George VI bends his knee in Westminster Abbey and admonishes his subjects to cry out to God for mercy along with him.  Without the ensuing “Miracle of Deliverance”, as Churchill put it, who knows what the outcome would have been of the war itself?
