Seaweed – the Little Green that Could

Uncategorized By November 21, 2014 Tags: , , , , No Comments

For those of you out there who are fans of sushi, or Asian cuisines in general, you are no strangers to seaweed, usually referred to as nori. Although commonly presented in Japanese dishes as standard or hand sushi rolls, it does play many other roles, showing up in everything from soups to snacks. Being an enormous seaweed fan myself, I recently noticed a couple of products on the market and decided to look at what was available and just how good seaweed actually is from a nutritional standpoint.


Checking Out the Chia Seed

Chia seeds – apparently they are no longer for growing little green bushes on top of clay pots shaped to look like human heads or sheep. Yes that long-time superstar of 2am infomercials has made its way to the big time and into our diets. I have heard a lot of people going on about chia, not only about how incredible it tastes, but how very good it is for you as well. So I figured, “Why not?” Let’s do this!


Guest Post – The Mysteries of Spanakopita Revealed

Uncategorized By November 10, 2014 Tags: , , , , , No Comments
So my dear friend (and excellent cook, might I add) asked me about the possibility of her doing a guest post on my blog and I thought, “What a great idea!” I’m sure my readers would be interested in learning more about whatever incredible food knowledge she might have. So here she is in all her cooking glory, talking to you about the most delectable Greek specialty there is (sorry baklava fans, but I’m partial):

Hello, my name is Sondra and my very good friend said I could make a post about my favorite dish. My
very favorite dish of all time is Spanakopita. Say it with me now, Span-eh-co-pita. Translation: Spinach Pie. Why do I like it so much? Well simply put,
it’s because I’m Greek. I grew up with Spanakopita being made in my house all
the time. It was especially made around the holidays and with the holidays
coming up, I’ve been a little nostalgic lately. I try to carry on the tradition
and I make a lot of it during the holidays for friends and family. My father
and I also make it for our church events, because at my church it’s not an
“event” unless you have lots of food.
