Man is their marketing good. Just so happens so is this lovely amaretto liqueur. Great way to end a Monday!

The Complete Vegetarian Cookbook by Jack Bishop, which I received as a Christmas gift this recent holiday season, inspired this recipe. I’m not one for following recipes, but this book is an easy guide and once you make it a single time it will stick with you and become part of your culinary repertoire. Risotto

This recipe will not disappoint. Not only is it healthy and deelish, but it is great for entertaining. It does not seem like a lot of ingredients, but it sure looks like it when the salad is complete. You can feed an army (or a famished family of four!). This recipe follows my 10 prep

I suggest making this recipe when you need a filling lunch or dinner, only have 20-30 minutes, and $5 in your pocket. Literally! Here’s what you need: Serves 2-4 ½- pound angel

Okay, okay. I know what you are thinking. You are asking, why are you cleansing? Plenty of people I speak with tend to think that when you say, “cleanse”, it directly correlates with weight loss by swigging on a lemon, maple syrup, and cayenne pepper concoction. While yes, I have indeed tried that unbelievable torturous

Cantalope with organic cottage cheese. If you’re asking yourself what the black specs on top are…yes that would be fresh ground black pepper. Seem weird. Probably, but this is how my grandma and mom would eat it so I guess you could say it’s a family recipe. Try it!

All you need: Whole grain bread Horizon light cream cheese Alfalfa sprouts Tomato Red leaf lettuce (or any lettuce besides iceberg) Avocado Basil Red wine vinegar

This is the recipe my moms moms mom gave her, with one exception! This variation is vegetarian! Since it is Italian and passed down through the generations I am going to print exactly how my mom gave me the recipe. Quite hilarious! Start it with onion, garlic, hot pepper flakes, basil: dried. Saute that together

I love Giada DiLaurentis from the Food Network, and have a couple of her cook books. I normally stick to certain recipes I have in my repertoire and/or just make due with what we have left over in the fridge, but last night was different. I delved into Giada at Home and discovered this recipe

Congrats on your juicer purchase. It will really change your mornings, or those afternoon snack cravings. I am by no means a nutritionist, but by juicing you are extracting the nutrients out of the fruits and vegetables. The left over pulp if primarily fiber.

So I am a pretty healthy person consuming a vegetarian diet and exercises regularly. I eat vegan when I can, specifically and especially on #MeatlessMondays. I believe that anything in moderation is a good rule of thumb. That being said, I do appreciate comfort food. Today in LA was rainy, windy and a down right

This is one of my family recipes. I mastered it when I was in school and now make it about once a month. Some of you may have had pasta fagioli before in restaurants, but my Italian side of the family has adopted the pasta fazool version. This pronunciation comes from Italian-American slang for the

Not only is that the question of the day, since the news came out about Lance Armstrong being stripped of his seven Tour de France titles and being banned from the sport of cycling all together by USADA. He was faced with the decision to head into arbitration since his lawsuit was thrown out, and

Chad Johnson vs. His Wife Head butting your wife (or husband, however you want to see it) after only a little over a month of being married is what I like to call a jump start to a successful life together. The long time receiver was released from jail on $2,500 bond and subsequently the
