“And for all the dietary confusion we face, nutritionists have yet to say a bad word about vegetables”-Alanna Stang, Editor in Chief, Whole Living




A generation ago it was a fairly uncommon practice to abstain from a meat-based diet, but now you will not even raise an eyebrow if you tell your friends you are vegan, or vegetarian.

According to them, my father, uncles and grandfathers all included – steak has to be grilled, no matter what.

I disagree.

With the right pan and the right cut, a pan-seared steak can be amazing. So listen up. Here’s how you do the perfect, no fuss, steak in a pan. Continue »

Warm Up Your Weekend With Pot Roast

March has come in like a lamb and is going out like a lion. Even though we have spent much of the month reveling in unseasonably warm weather, busting out the barbeque might have been a bit premature. With temperatures expected to drop below zero this weekend, and a forecast for some flurries, it may be a good weekend to bring out the Dutch oven and indulge in one of our favorite seasonal dinners, classic pot roast.
