The first time my (now) husband cooked for me, it was a pretty interesting experience. I politely cleaned my plate, but I made a mental note then and there to always think carefully before accepting any future offers of a homemade meal. Luckily, a lot changes in eight years. My husband, after years of being

Many of us in the U.S. are staring down the barrel at a three-day weekend. Not just any three-day weekend, but one that heralds the beginning of summer and all of its requisite picnics, barbecues and pool parties. Of course, ice cream is the quintessential summertime treat, but what if you're looking for something a

It's a terrific time of year to be a foodie. Even the smallest, most modest farmers markets and roadside stands are brimming with vibrant, fresh fruits and vegetables. It's always exciting to spot pints of ruby red strawberries among these spring arrivals - or to visit a farm and pick your own. Beautiful, juicy and

Ever peer inside the vegetable drawer and discover something you'd forgotten about? Something fresh and colorful you'd purchased with good intentions, but never quite got around to preparing? Something that, if not dealt with soon, will probably be destined for the compost bin? Happens to me all the time.

When was the last time you had s'mores? I'm not talking about a S'more Pop-Tart or a bowl of S'more Crunch Cereal (anyone remember that?). I'm referring to crispy, gooey, chocolatey, honest-to-goodness s'mores (short for "some more" as in, "try one and you'll beg for s'more!"). This delectable dessert was the stuff your childhood camping

Compromise. It's a fine art when trying to balance somewhat responsible eating habits with really good food. Especially when you find yourself undeniably hooked on good-tasting but not-so-healthy eats, like bar food. Case in point: I'm addicted to the boneless wings with spicy garlic sauce at Buffalo Wild Wings. While on a five

Spring has sprung! The weather in many parts of the world is finally beginning to warm up, and with the sunny days and warm breezes comes my craving for summery mixed drinks on the patio. Though it's not quite warm enough to justify pulling out the blender for slushy drinks like frozen mojitos,

Sweet tooth. Most of us have one. Some of us (okay, it's me) have an insatiable one. This is why I'm always on the lookout for sweet treats that I can make in small portions, individual servings, or that keep well so I can stash the leftovers away for future sweet tooth moments. And this

Have you tried spaghetti squash? It's an amazing vegetable whose meat, when cooked, separates into little strands that resemble spaghetti noodles. It's wonderfully easy to cook (just split, seed, microwave, and comb out the "noodles"), and its light flavor can be paired with everything from your standard red sauce to a vibrant pesto to a

After a week of coffee-and-granola-bar breakfasts, I'm dreaming of spending Sunday morning languishing in bed for as long as possible, only heading to the kitchen when hunger calls to prepare these amazing Whole-Wheat Oatmeal Pancakes. We discovered this recipe one weekend after debating the nutritional merits of pancakes and trying to justify a high-calorie, carb-heavy
