Forget all this chatter about how it's hard to cook dinner, especially a vegetarian dinner. Erin posted earlier this week in this group saying that it's easy to think of a piece of chicken, a side of broccoli and rice as dinner. And that it's harder to come up with vegetarian dinner ideas. She's right. But once you do a little reimagining of what dinner can be, you'll realize there are tons of options out there, from frittatas to a hearty bowl of soup, to a big salad with lots of veggies and beans. My favorite answer when I'm pressed for time, but I still want a healthy home-cooked dinner: a sandwich or wrap. I make a quick green salad, oven fries or roasted vegetables to go with it and I'm set. Here's a collection of healthy, easy vegetarian...

I have been in the mood for pasta. So when I got home last night from a weekend out of town, I knew what I was going to make...Bean Bolognese.

Try it and some of our other fabulous meatless pasta recipes in this collection. Enjoy!

Tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo and I don't have plans to go out. But I am going to cook up a Mexican feast. To me, it's just another great excuse to cook Mexican, and maybe drink a michelada (my favorite chile, lime, beer concoction.) I'm going to make Butternut Squash & Bean Tacos with Green Salsa (see the photo below). This recipe was created by cookbook author Vanessa Barrington for a story we did for EatingWell magazine on heirloom beans. (I may just use canned beans, unless I get my act together and put on a pot of pintos to simmer when I get home tonight.)

If you’re inspired to cook for Cinco de Mayo, check out this slideshow of meatless Mexican dinner recipes including those...

Ever since I was a kid I've looked forward to Thanksgiving. As soon as Labor Day passed, my sister, my mom and I would scour magazines and cookbooks to find new recipes. Every year we tried a couple of new dishes, some of which became instant classics in our family. Take our cranberry sauce: we loved the one I brought home from nursery school so much we've made it every Thanksgiving since.

To this day, planning my Thanksgiving menu is a balancing act. I want to eat my favorite dishes, but the food editor in me wants to try something new. So my solution is this: rather than breaking entirely new ground (no smoked turkey and sage sushi...
