If it is fall in New England, it is time for apple picking! If apple picking is not your thing, a visit to an orchard or farm stand will enable you to buy a wide variety of apples! You can’t forget to enjoy apple cider- hot or cold a wonderful fall treat as well.
But don’t forget to try the apple cider donuts! I mean try them at everyplace you find them since they are as different as every apple pie you have ever tasted!
One of the best apple cider donuts I had the pleasure of enjoying was at Russell Orchards …
eggplant panini from acefitness.org
The sandwich has been a luncheon trademark for as long as I can remember. Satisfying and nutritious, there are endless options waiting to be stuffed between a couple slices of bread for a mid-day meal. From club sandwiches to tea sandwiches to wraps and flat-breads; one of my most beloved has to be the Panini.
Crispy on the outside with a golden crust and a warm, melty inside makes the panini irresistible.
And now you no longer have to eat-out to get your panini fix. The Giada Gourmet Panini Maker from Target is what you’ve been waiting for. It’s …
lemonade from cooksillustrated.com
Pink or yellow, sweet or sour, fresh or frozen: it doesn’t matter how you spin it, lemonade and summertime go hand-in-hand. I remember sitting at the end of my driveway selling lemonade from a cooler, arguing with my sister about who gets to collect the cash. I was about seven years old and making anything over $10.00 a day was a fortune.

black pepper from newsduniyaonline.com
Some people are shy when it comes to adding a peppery punch to their tuna salad. But personally, I like to spice things up in the kitchen.
Last week, as I was whipping up an omelette, I noticed the sub-par abilities of my pepper mill. I cranked and cranked, but the pepper only scantily dusted my breakfast.
And so, my hunt for the perfect mill began.
As I was browsing Williams-Sonoma online, I came across the Trudeau Graviti Electric Salt and Pepper Mills. Forget the old, out-dated mill that requires you to grind by hand. The Trudeau mills do all the …
grilled pizza from chow.com
Summertime means bbq‘s in the back yard every night. So finding new things to throw on the grill is a must, because no matter how tasty the burgers and dogs might be you have to add some variety to the mix.
There are so many things you can grill up for dinner from bbq chicken to swordfish steaks to kabobs of peppers and eggplant. I’ve even heard of grilled watermelon as a substitute for a burger. But one of my favorite things to cook on the grill has to be pizza.
Grilled pizza takes practice. You can’t just do …
trudeau pot clip from ChefTools
A common pet peeve of mine, and I’m sure most cooks can agree, is the mess that’s left behind on the counter from your wooden spoon or spatula. Cooking anything from pasta sauce to scrambled eggs requires stirring, and inbetween stirs what do you do with your utensil?
I’ve gotten in the habit of trying to balance the spoon or spatula across the pot while my food simmers, but it’s a risky maneuver. At any moment the spoon could fall onto the burner leaving a burn mark in your wooden or rubber friend.
And the designated saucer you …
The American Cancer Society recently released the results of a new study on diet and exercise and the effect it can have on cancer recurrence. Read more about the newest guidelines for cancer survivors here.
For me, one of the most interesting points was mentioned in the Q&A section:
Should cancer survivors include soy-based foods in their diet?
Soy foods are an excellent source of protein and can be a good option for meals without meat. Soy contains many phytochemicals, some of which have weak estrogen activity and seem to protect against hormone-dependent cancers in animal studies. Other compounds in soy have antioxidant …
