Reducing your risk of breast cancer could be as easy as opening a can of tuna. A review of 26 studies published a few weeks ago in the British Medical Journal found that women who eat more omega-3 fatty acids had a lower risk of developing breast cancer.
Research also shows that omega-3s are good for the heart, by lowering triglycerides and bood pressure.
One of the best sources for omega-3s is fish. We all have a can of tuna gathering dust in the cupboard, but here’s how to dress it up a little more than the usual bland tuna salad. This …

mandoline from zappos.com
Working in a restaurant over the past several months has taught me a lot about chef-worthy kitchen tools. One of the most used kitchen gadget is the mandoline. Not the musical instrument kind of mandolin, but the fruit and vegetable slicing mandoline.
When it comes to shredding carrots for salads, or potatoes for hash browns, the mandoline is the only tool to use. The different settings allow you to make wider or thinner sized slices, or longer or shorter slices, so that you’ll have the perfectly sized shred for anything you’re making.
And the OXO Hand-Held Mandoline Slicer takes shredding to …

One of the many fabulous summertime perks is having a lush, green garden. If you have a green-thumb then you’re probably eating home-grown veggies and enjoying beautiful flowers by the vase full. And, of course, one of the easiest and most commonly garden-grown treat, herbs!
Herbs add some serious flavor to food. Fresh basil adds a punch to pasta sauces and is unbelievably good on homemade pizza. Home-grown dill will have you eating coleslaw every night. And add fresh mint leaves to you’re iced tea, or simply chew on them to freshen breath!
If you’re an herb-lover then the Herb …
One of my favorite comfort foods has always been pasta. No matter how you serve it, with butter and melted parmesan, or doused in sweet red marinara sauce, it’s always satisfying and delicious. It may sound strange to some but one of my favorite ways to have pasta growing up was casserole-style, mixed with tuna fish, mayonnaise and dill pickles, mmm. And I can’t forget to mention my mother’s scrumptious pasta salads that are the staple at most of our barbecue’s all summer long.
As of late, pasta has gotten a bad rep. Many of us hold the noodle accountable for …
It is only since coming to Boston that I had my first Passover roll. I had never heard of it before and growing up it was something we never had. Boy do I wish my mother had this recipe. But since coming to Boston this recipe has become one of my daughter’s favorite recipes and they disappear as quickly as they appear so it means I am constantly making them often during Passover.
When I make the batter, it would also make a good basis for a hot cereal but I have not figured out …
Sometimes staying in for New Year’s Eve is an enjoyable option as opposed to going out! Sometimes you just want a nice quite New Year’s Eve with good food and drink at home! I can always go out for dinner another night!
I always plan a complicated menu and started to this time as well when I realized I wasn’t in the mood for spending hours in the kitchen.
I just wanted to relax and enjoy the day and make something wonderful yet simple that would have that WOW factor after all it was still New Year’s Eve! Then I found this …
