It's been too long since my last post, apologies to all my regular visitors. I have all the standard excuses: work was crazy, my
son's extra-curricular activities have kept us running, and some evenings I was just too tired.
The longer I went without a post, the harder it seemed to get

When your mom told you "Breakfast is the most important meal of the day," she wasn't far from the truth. For those of us trying
to lose weight or live a healthier lifestyle, breakfast is a must. And no, coffee doesn't count!
Why is breakfast so important?

Did you make a healthy resolution for the new year? How's it going? Are you taking small steps? Did you start with picking
healthier versions of ingredients in your cooking?
Now that you're thinking about what you're eating, it's time to start thinking about how much. Restaurants and f

Chicken is a protein staple for many of us trying to lose weight or live a healthier lifestyle. I would bet serious money that the vast majority of us have groaned over the idea of yet another piece of grilled chicken. This is why I love Hunter's Chicken, cacciatore

Regular readers know that I started cooking as part of a larger effort to lose weight and get healthy. I was significantly overweight
and needed to make a change. But, it wasn't as if I hadn't tried before. My previous efforts had failed, primarily, for two reasons; I felt I had to complet

I had to share this! I was in Los Angeles last week for work. While there, I met a dear friend for dinner at Susan
Feniger's Street. I'm a huge fan of what Chef Feniger does with food. Her dishes are creative, beautiful, made with fresh ingredients and incredibly tasty. Chef Feniger wa

Thanksgiving is my absolute favorite holiday. Certainly, there's the
food. But the food is simply a vehicle for bringing us together with family and friends to mark the accomplishments and trials of the year, to remember those that have touched our lives and to give thanks for all of it.

I'm sorry it has been so long since I've posted. September and October were incredibly busy months for me in my "real" job, culminating
in three business trips in the last three weeks of October. I'm really looking forward to things quieting down. I'm not there yet, but I'm close

Green beans are a favorite in this house, but they can get old kind of fast. So, I'm always looking for ways to dress them up a
little different. This easy and delicious version, combining a little oil and butter, garlic, balsamic vinegar and cherry tomatoes with the beans. In fact, this i

My apologies to the regular readers out there, I know I haven't been posting much. It's not that I haven't been cooking, it's just that I am in the middle of a very busy time at work. Between that and personal obligations, I just haven't had a lo
