And if you frequent Thai restaurants, you probably do too! You can put just about anything in a Thai curry, so we Test Kitchen cooks always keep curry paste on hand so we can whip up a curry with whatever we have hanging out in the fridge. </p> <p>When we decided to use Thai curry paste in the March/April 2015 issue for our <em>Market Pick</em> column (that’s where we do four different takes on one ingredient), we in the Test Kitchen thought it would only be prudent to try as many curry pastes as we could get our hands on. </p></div> http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/how_to_buy_thai_curry_paste_plus_easy_recipes_to_make_with_it#comments Food Blog Healthy Cooking Blog Carolyn Malcoun Cooking tips Dinner Multimedia & Tools - Blogs Wed, 11 Mar 2015 14:36:27 +0000 suzie.qu_559209 285388 at http://www.eatingwell.com Host an EatingWell Oscar Party http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/host_an_eatingwell_oscar_party <div><a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/host_an_eatingwell_oscar_party" target="_blank"><img src="http://assets.eatingwell.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/148_148/BV6277_310x310_web.jpg" alt="Host an EatingWell Oscar Party Blog Post" title="Host an EatingWell Oscar Party Blog Post" border="0" width="148" height="148" /></a></div> <div><h3>EatingWell’s Oscar-Ready Party Menu for 2015</h3> <p>My family hosts an Oscar party every year and each time we try to outdo ourselves when it comes to the party food and menu.

They’re the ultimate budget-shopper’s protein (at less than 40 cents each), last longer than any cut of meat and can help you make the most of your miscellaneous fridge finds.</p> <p>Wilting greens? Sauté them with some sliced onion and finely chopped garlic and they become the perfect meal when topped with a poached egg. </p></div> http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/need_an_easy_dinner_put_an_egg_on_it#comments Food Blog Breakfast Carolyn Malcoun Dinner Family meals Multimedia & Tools - Blogs Tue, 04 Nov 2014 15:59:55 +0000 suzie.qu_559209 284396 at http://www.eatingwell.com Why Turkey Sausage Is a Weeknight-Dinner Lifesaver http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/why_turkey_sausage_is_a_weeknight_dinner_lifesaver <div><a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/why_turkey_sausage_is_a_weeknight_dinner_lifesaver" target="_blank"><img src="http://assets.eatingwell.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/148_148/MP8293_Ardito.JPG" alt="Why Turkey Sausage Is a Weeknight-Dinner Lifesaver Blog Post" title="Why Turkey Sausage Is a Weeknight-Dinner Lifesaver Blog Post" border="0" width="148" height="148" /></a></div> <div><p>I love sausage. More important, my 2-year-old daughter loves sausage, so if I can add it to something I’m cooking, there’s a good chance she’ll gobble it up. But we try to be mindful of what we eat, so I opt for turkey sausage. </p> <p>Why? Nutritionally speaking, it’s a leaner choice than pork sausage, with roughly half the calories and only one-fifth the saturated fat per serving. In terms of flavor, I think they’re almost equal: like pork, turkey sausage spices up every dish it meets with a savory blast. So I always keep healthy links of turkey sausage in my freezer. </p></div> http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/why_turkey_sausage_is_a_weeknight_dinner_lifesaver#comments Food Blog Carolyn Malcoun Dinner Family meals Multimedia & Tools - Blogs Tue, 04 Nov 2014 14:41:54 +0000 suzie.qu_559209 284393 at http://www.eatingwell.com Fresh Ideas for Fall CSA Vegetables: Carrots, Kale and Beets http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/fresh_ideas_for_fall_csa_vegetables_carrots_kale_and_beets <div><a href="http://www.eatingwell.com/blogs/food_blog/fresh_ideas_for_fall_csa_vegetables_carrots_kale_and_beets" target="_blank"><img src="http://assets.eatingwell.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/148_148/Fall-vegetables.jpg" alt="Fresh Ideas for Fall CSA Vegetables: Carrots, Kale and Beets Blog Post" title="Fresh Ideas for Fall CSA Vegetables: Carrots, Kale and Beets Blog Post" border="0" width="148" height="148" /></a></div> <div><p>I thought I had it good with my CSA midsummer, but the first weeks of September are truly a vegetable-lover’s gold mine. </p> <p>Not only am I still getting perfect summer tomatoes, peppers and eggplant, but cooler-weather crops like beets and dark leafy greens are back in rotation too.
