As all the fun and excitement of the holiday season begins to fade, January can seem like a bleak month. So now is the moment to aim for more fun with your healthy cooking. First of all is the cooking method.
"Who wants steamed chicken for dinner?" If you asked that question in a room full of hungry people, it's a pretty good bet that nobody would speak up or even timidly raise their hands.
Some people say January could not be a worse time of year for resolving to eat more healthfully and get fit. I understand those arguments. And I can actually answer such protests from those resisting healthy winter foods with a single word: Soup!
Even as you're getting ready to celebrate the arrival of 2015, you're also probably thinking about your New Year's resolutions. I believe that the best way to begin a new approach to eating is with breakfast.
New Year's Eve is one of the best occasions I know for a special, elegant meal.
If you grew up almost anywhere cold in North America or Europe, one of the most evocative sensations of the holiday season is the smoky-sweet smell of chestnuts, roasting irresistibly on charcoal-fueled street-corner stands.
