I want to know...what does everyone's perfect Thanksgiving meal consist of? Mine starts off with butternut squash soup, salad and bread, followed by the main course, turkey, stuffing, sides (gratin, string beans, roasted veggies), then followed by a few desserts such as pumpkin pie, apple pie and pumpkin mousse :-)
I hope you are all OK from Hurricane Irene!
Just curious, what were your Hurricane Irene comfort foods? Mine were:
LOTS OF THE ABOVE!
So, lately I've been thinking about a career change, but really don't want to spend years in school anymore. I always wanted to go towards Food and Nutrition. I LOVE blogging about healthy food and nutrition but I"d like to do more.
After doing some research online I found the Natural Gourmet Institute for Health and Culinary Arts. Has anyone gone here? Anyone know what the job placement is like? This is a $26,000 program and I wanted to know if anyone has experienced this and what is was like. Any feedback would be appreciated.
Thank you so much!!
I found this oatmeal/pudding from Kozy Shack and fell in love with it! First of all, it's made mostly from natural ingredients (I'm iffy on the inulin -it's suppose to be a safe fiber additive). Any who, with less than 20 grams of sugars and 8 grams of protein and 2 grams of fat and for only 180 calories this stuff is delish!! I was wondering if anyone had a homemade recipe for this. The ingredients are as follows: low fat milk, water, rolled oats, sugar, inulin, eggs, brown rice, barely, oats, brown sugar, modified corn starch, natural flavors, citric acid, carrageenan. Anyone have a method to this madness? Thank you!!
Fill in the blank:
Lately I've taken a big liking to ricotta cheese! I've been eating it for breakfast mixed with nuts and cinnamon, as a snack with celery, etc. I'm sure my affection with ricotta will dwindle off soon as I'm going into ricotta overload, but I want to know what interesting snacks/meals you guys do with ricotta....spill it ppls!
What do you crave...believe it or not, I've been on a jalapeno binge this whole week! I can't help it, I just want spice!!!
My friends bday is in a couple of days and I want to make her a chocolate cake. However, I have a few challenges.
First off, she is allergic to eggs, secondly, she is allergic to
gluten, thirdly, she is allergic to soy, and fourthly, she is allergic to nuts, so no almond flour or any other type of nut flour can be used.
I found out it is very hard to make a cake with these restrictions, but it's not impossible.
Would you happen to know of a recipe without these ingredients OR a site or anyone you would know that would have some insight on this?
I do know the cake would be very dense...but it's still worth a shot!
Thank you all!!
Anjum Anand is on a crusade to change the way we look at Indian food. Her mission is to familiarize Western cooks with ingredients and techniques as well as lightening up classic dishes to make for a more healthful eating experience. This Kashmiri Chicken from her recently released Anjum's New Indian does both by creating a simple to put together dish that relies on an array of spices and vegetables for flavor instead of fat.
