Summer Solstice Cold Asian Noodles

Monday, June 25, 2018

This is the solstice, the still point of the sun, its cusp and midnight, the year's threshold and unlocking, where the past lets go and becomes the future; the place of caught breath. ~Margaret AtwoodGiven that NASA just recorded the fourth warmest May in 138 years of modern global record-keeping, and the fact that Thursday, June 21, is the official 2018 summer solstice (the midsummer date based on the planet’s rotational axis, making it the longest day of the year), it seems appropriate to feature a refreshing cold pasta dish for celebrating the summer solstice, since the heat wave making it's way across the Midwest and Northeast could break records this week.

Quick and Easy Summer Zucchini

Monday, June 18, 2018

Given that Colorado Springs has been experiencing above 90 degree weather in early June, quick and easy fresh vegetable pasta seems an appropriate Tasty Tuesday recipe. Unfortunately, our spiralizer seems to have been misplaced in our move from high on Cheyenne Mountain to downtown Colorado Springs. The good news, although not quite as pretty, very thin mandoline-sliced zucchini also works just fine.

Monday, June 04, 2018

Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage. -Lao TzuThree years ago my foodie friend April Steinert, wrote about vivid, voluptuous sweet cherries on her blog about life, food and spirits.   It proved to be a healthy, quick and easy, lick-the-bowl-clean seasonal recipe responsible for a tremendous amount of reader thank you notes. We tagged it as a fresh cherry season "must serve" once or twice every year.

Nouriishing Bone Broth

Tuesday, April 24, 2018

Bone broth is even hotter hot now than it was when we presented it in 2016 as a Tasty Tuesday recipe. It’s being called the multifaceted superfood by many. It's now available in bone broth shops in New York and available for home delivery in a number of cities. Bone broth, with 10 mg of protein per serving, is also available in k-cups for your Keurig for about $2.00 per cup. ​

Homemade Tortillas

Tuesday, March 27, 2018

Last week's Friday Pearl focused on niacin (vitamin B3) and the role it plays in optimal skin, digestive system, and nervous system health. We also discussed how US diets consisting of excessive corn and corn products are frequently linked to niacin deficiency, while our friends in Mexico rarely suffer from this deficiency. The difference being, their traditional preparation of corn tortillas involves soaking the corn in lime (calcium oxide) prior to cooking. Heating corn in alkaline solutions results in the release of bound niacin, dramatically increasing its bioavailability.

Spring is here. The 2018 spring equinox officially starts at 10:15 this morning. For those of you who might have forgotten, the first day of spring in the Northern Hemisphere is the date when day and night are almost the same length with each lasting about 12 hours. And, Easter Sunday is always the second Sunday after the spring equinox.
