That means pie is more of a special-occasion dessert—unless someone’s made it for me.

Since I often feel that ice cream makers don’t add quite as many treats as I’d like, I’ve been known to take it upon myself to get the right ratio at home. I just buy some plain light ice cream, let it soften up for a few minutes, then stir in my own combination of nuts, fruit, chocolate or whatever suits my fancy that day.</p></div> http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/easy_ways_to_jazz_up_plain_jane_ice_cream#comments Food Blog Carolyn Malcoun Dessert Multimedia & Tools - Blogs Wed, 06 Aug 2014 13:41:33 +0000 suzie.qu_559209 283623 at http://www.eatingwell.com Cherry Recipes Make the Most of the Wonder Fruit's Benefits http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/cherry_recipes_make_the_most_of_the_wonder_fruits_benefits <div><a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/cherry_recipes_make_the_most_of_the_wonder_fruits_benefits" target="_blank"><img src="http://bed56888308e93972c04-0dfc23b7b97881dee012a129d9518bae.r34.cf1.rackcdn.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/148_148/BV8812_Ardito_0.JPG" alt="Cherry Recipes Make the Most of the Wonder Fruit&amp;#039;s Benefits Blog Post" title="Cherry Recipes Make the Most of the Wonder Fruit&amp;#039;s Benefits Blog Post" border="0" width="148" height="148"/></a></div> <div><p>Sweet cherries are here, and because most are grown along the lengthy West Coast the season lasts from mid-May in California to the end of the harvest in Washington in August. Intensely flavorful and juicy, cherries are not a hard sell. But their long list of powerful nutrients seals the deal: they’re rich in anthocyanins (potent antioxidants with anti-inflammatory properties) and boast plenty of blood-pressure-reducing potassium. They often grow in pairs, because multiple flowers bloom from a single bud and when they fruit, the cherries stay together.</p></div> http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/cherry_recipes_make_the_most_of_the_wonder_fruits_benefits#comments Food Blog Breana Lai Dessert Dinner Nutrition What's in season Multimedia & Tools - Blogs Wed, 23 Jul 2014 19:25:36 +0000 Sarah Hoff 283532 at http://www.eatingwell.com Sensational Do-at-Home Sangria http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/sensational_do_at_home_sangria <div><a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/sensational_do_at_home_sangria" target="_blank"><img src="http://bed56888308e93972c04-0dfc23b7b97881dee012a129d9518bae.r34.cf1.rackcdn.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/148_148/23484_Ardito_310.jpg" alt="Sensational Do-at-Home Sangria Blog Post" title="Sensational Do-at-Home Sangria Blog Post" border="0" width="148" height="148"/></a></div> <div><p>While I always have a decent selection of craft beers and a few bottles of wine in my fridge for the times when friends drop by for an impromptu summertime shindig, I’ve decided to make this The Summer of Sangria. </p> <p><strong>Don't Miss:</strong> <a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/5_party_wines_for_10_or_less">5 Summer Party Wines for $10 or Less</a> </p></div> http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/sensational_do_at_home_sangria#comments Food Blog Carolyn Malcoun Entertaining Holidays Multimedia & Tools - Blogs Mon, 07 Jul 2014 18:12:38 +0000 suzie.qu_559209 283414 at http://www.eatingwell.com Delicious Summer Dinners on a Budget http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/delicious_summer_dinners_on_a_budget <div><a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/delicious_summer_dinners_on_a_budget" target="_blank"><img src="http://bed56888308e93972c04-0dfc23b7b97881dee012a129d9518bae.r34.cf1.rackcdn.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/148_148/budget blog.jpg" alt="Delicious Summer Dinners on a Budget Blog Post" title="Delicious Summer Dinners on a Budget Blog Post" border="0" width="148" height="148"/></a></div> <div><p>I <em>love</em> summer.

The plain variety has less sugar and more protein than typical yogurt. But regular yogurt delivers twice the bone-strengthening mineral calcium. Greek yogurt also tends to be more expensive than regular yogurt, because more milk goes into making each cup.</p> <p>Pictured Recipe: <a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/apple_oatmeal.html">Apple Oatmeal</a></p></div> http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/which_is_healthier_greek_yogurt_or_regular_yogurt#comments Food Blog Diet Food & health news Health Lisa D'Agrosa Nutrition Multimedia & Tools - Blogs Mon, 17 Mar 2014 16:35:22 +0000 Nifer 282212 at http://www.eatingwell.com
