It’s almost the weekend and I’m already thinking about dessert—specifically brownies.
Yes, I could make brownies from a box (we’ve all done it, I know there’s nothing to be ashamed of.) But when I’m cooking for friends, I like to bring something homemade to the table, maybe on the healthier side, and definitely something people will love.

With the weekend on the way (and maple sugaring season in full swing here in Vermont) I'm definintely going to be making some pancakes and waffles this weekend. EatingWell's Healthy Pancakes are a great basic recipe, but some of the pancakes with more pizzaz (Like Blueberry Ricotta) are a fun weekend treat. And our house waffles recipe, EatingWell Waffles, from our EatingWell for a Healthy Heart Book, are just as good as the butter-filled kind and I feel so much better about eating them.

What about you? Do you love sardines or hate them? Would you...read full post »
I've been following celebrity chef Jamie Oliver's efforts to improve school lunches since before I wrote about his TV show "Jamie's Food Revolution" in the September/October 2010 issue of EatingWell Magazine. He'd encountered resistance the first time around, but now, his new effort to improve LA school lunches has taken a more serious turn of events. The Los Angeles Times reported that Oliver was banned from filming his ABC series "Jamie's Food Revolution" in LA schools because he failed to submit a proposal about his plans to officials. The district pulled filming because it was concerned by how it might be portrayed on the show....read full post »
I don’t know about you, but bananas are a staple in my house. In fact, it’s the first thing my son asks for every day when he wakes up. (It would be wrong to leave a bunch in his crib, right?) I can’t imagine what would happen if we had no bananas, which are one of the best fruit sources of potassium (a nutrient associated with healthy blood pressure) and boast good doses of vitamin C, cell-building B6 and fiber.
