Mama’s Favorite Chicken Saute

Mama's Chicken Saute My mother made this dish for our family dinners whenever we wanted comfort food. I always think of her when I make it. It has chicken and egg--symbols of the life cycle.

Buckwheat Crepes

Buckwheat Crepes Full of fiber, vitamins, and minerals, buckwheat is a grain that is too often overlooked. Most people have never cooked with it or encountered it in restaurants.

Stuffed Turkey Rolls

Stuffed Turkey Rolls I pack these turkey cutlets with my Savory Stuffing, roll them up, and secure them with kitchen twine. The finished rolls are sliced and fanned out on a plate to make a beautiful presentation. Because I marinate the turkey before cooking, it’s juicy and flavorful. The selenium in turkey can increase your resistance Read More

Turkey in Turmeric Sauce

Turkey in Turmeric Sauce Turmeric, an anti-inflammatory, is a main ingredient in Indian curries. With its bright yellow color, turmeric pairs beautifully with poultry and fish. Its mild flavor goes well with garlic. Coconut milk has been much maligned for its saturated fat, but new research has revealed that its medium-chain fatty acids increase HDL, or Read More

Meatloaf with Flaxseed

Meatloaf with Flaxseed This Middle Eastern–style meatloaf is actually a ground beef and pine nut filling between two layers of a seasoned meat paste.

Tomato paste gives this Read More
