Trying to lose weight does not mean that you have to starve yourself. The most important thing is to stay healthy during the process. If you have started on a dieting plan or is currently in the midst of one. Below are some advice and tips on how to do properly.
1. Please, do not skip any meals. When you do that, your body's metabolism begins to slow down. This is because it is trying to conserve energy as fuel for your body, such as fat, becomes limited. By having regular meals, your metabolism is maintained and even increased.
2. You should take three small meals and two snacks everyday and not just one or two huge meals.
3. Start your day by drinking warm water with just a squeeze of lemon juice before breakfast to get the metabolism going, this can also help to prevent constipation and is excellent for the skin.
4. Another way to increase the speed of your metabolism and burn more calories is to drink hot water instead of cold water in the morning.
5. Chili helps to speed up metabolism - even the milder varieties.
6. Learn about nutrition and how to prepare healthy meals so that you will adopt healthy eating habits.
7. Learn how to make your favourite recipes but reduce the fats, salt, and sugar content. Substitute cream with non-fat yogurt, stir-fry without oil and use herbs and spices instead of salt to taste. When stir-frying, use chicken stock to cut down on hidden fat.
8. You can use vegetables like capsicum and zucchini to wrap flavoured fillings or minced chicken, white meat or fish. These are healthy and contain low fat.
9. Soya beans or tofu is one of the best sources of vegetable protein. Legumes are also good sources of protein, so include lentils, lima beans etc into casseroles and soups.
10. You can make delicious low fat mayonnaise by combining one teaspoon of Dijon mustard or satay sauce with low fat yogurt.
11. Take non-toasted muesli instead of the toasted ones. A plate of toasted muesli contains more fat than a plate of bacon and eggs.
12. Another way to reduce fat is to make omelettes without the yolks.
13. Try not to remove the skins of fruits and vegetables as most of the nutrients are concentrated under the skin.
Here are a few simple recipes which you can try. Enjoy!

Having a healthy colon is the key to long term health and finding good colon healthy recipes is one way to help keep your body healthy. While it might be difficult to actually locate recipes that are labeled to be healthy for the colon, you can learn to recognize them by the ingredients that they contain- namely fresh fruits and vegetables. In addition, a healthy recipe will contain little or no white flour and white sugar. Perhaps the best recipe for colon health, however is to include lots of fruits and vegetables in your meals as described below.
The large intestine or colon is where the results of the entire digestive process gather up to leave the body. Due to poor eating habits, most people have an unhealthy colon resulting in constipation. If your colon is not in tip top shape, food can get trapped in the lining and start to rot. It can also become hardened in there and can even be trapped in your colon for years!
Of course, food plays a big role in the health of your colon. There are many arguments for the pros and cons of a vegan diet, however when it comes to colon health, a vegetarian way of eating has many benefits.
Animal foods are hard to digest where plant foods are quite easy to digest. So, colon healthy recipes will include little or no animal foods and be based mainly on whole grains, fruits and vegetables. In addition to good colon health, using recipes made with these foods will have a pronounced effect on your overall health in general.
Vegetables and fruits are very colon friendly and can be processed or digested quite easily by the body. They contain a variety of vitamins and minerals as well as enzymes and fiber- all things that are essential to good health. Fiber, in particular, is good for your colon health as it adds bulk which helps to pass the food along the digestive tract.
One simple and easy breakfast recipe could be a fruit salad with oatmeal (not the packaged or instant stuff). Natural fruit juice can be quite healthy too although it does not have fiber and drinking a lot of water will help with the digestive process.
Always try to include a salad for lunch with lots of dark leafy greens. Stay away from the iceburg and try to include romaine lettuce and spinach as these have more vitamins. Broccoli, carrots, cauliflower and kale are great additions to any salad. Don’t forget the olives and artichokes for a little zest. Instead of bottled dressing which is probably loaded with sugar, try olive oil and vinegar- you might even mix in some fresh herbs and create your own salad dressing recipe!
For snacks, stay away from anything that comes in a package and go for raw nuts, fruit, veggies or even a nice fruit smoothie- made with real fresh fruit, of course! If you need something crunchy try spreading all natural peanut butter on celery (this can also help to satisfy any cravings for sweets).
Colon healthy recipes for dinner follow the same common sense rules. Try cutting down on the red meat and eating fresh fish along with a salad and perhaps some steamed broccoli, zucchini and carrots. If you need something more substantial try adding brown rice, corn on the cob or potatoes.
Just like with any other aspect of your health, eating nutritious healthy foods is a sure fire way to keep your colon, and your whole body, in good health.
Lee Dobbins writes for Colon Articles where you can learn more about keeping your colon healthy as well as get more information on colon healthy recipes.

So go ahead and serve your child some of these easy and healthy dessert recipes and watch them enjoy it.

Seafood recipes can be fun and healthy and let's not forget to mention EASY! Using your favorite seafood, such as shrimp, mussels scallops or crab and a few of the ideas given in this article you can continue to create unique and healthy seafood recipes time and time again.
Picking out a seafood recipe is an easy thing to do, with the help of the search engines you can find almost any kind of recipe that you like. Just using the phrase "Seafood Recipe" will return a mountain of sites that will take hours to browse through. Of course if your just looking for one really good recipe, you could easily find that in five minutes or less.
Now traditional clambake recipes and lobster recipes are good, but who has the time for the clambake or the money for lobster? As a working wife and mother, time is of the essence and if I cannot get dinner on the table in a reasonable amount of time, it's not worth doing, but I have to be able to please my family in the process.
One thing I am terrible at is measuring. I like to use a few favorite ingredients in any seafood recipes and adapt it to a healthier tastier way of cooking. And, the best part of cooking seafood is you can use whatever means you have available, whether it be grilling, saute or broiling.
Using shrimp as an example, we find that a pound of shrimp contains about 26 to 35 individual shrimp and costs roughly $8. That's pretty cheap for the base of a meal that your entire family will enjoy. Use a small paring knife to peel the shrimp and remove the veins, by passing the knife from the top of the shrimp toward its tail. That makes it much easier to open the shell, and then the shrimp should pop out right away. (Or, if you're willing to pay a bit more, you can purchase frozen shrimp already peeled.)
Put a teaspoon of butter and a teaspoon of extra-virgin olive oil in the bottom of a saute pan, add a clove or garlic (let's be honest - we are not peeling and mincing our own garlic here, we are using a teaspoon of already chopped garlic in the jar), a half of finely chopped sweet onion, some salt and pepper, some parsley and your favorite seafood seasoning. You can just as easily wrap all of your ingredients in foil and pop under the broiler for about 20 minutes for no-fuss cooking, or pop on the grill.
The shrimp should be served on a bed of wild rice cooked with chicken broth. Asparagus and tender baby portabella mushrooms, cooked together on the stove or over the grill with salt to taste and a dash of extra virgin olive oil, make an excellent side dish. These items combine to make a delicious dinner that is low in calories and quickly prepared (in no more than 45 minutes). Cleaning up shouldn't be a problem either.
Starting to cook with seafood items will become contagious pretty quick. It does not take long for the palette to crave a health and delicious seafood treat! Just the fact that it is such a healthy way to live and is so good for you are two great reasons to adopt this into your diet. As long as the seafood is fresh, there are really no health risks involved! To make sure this is the case, all you have to do is purchase your seafood from a reputable business, preferably located on the eastern seaboard of the continental US. There are so many recipes for you seafood fancies located online, just search for them and they will be in abundance. If all else fails turn to a local bookstore for some great recipe books.
When you are planning a family get together, definitely consider using a seafood recipe to make the occasion memorable. Most people when presented with a fresh seafood meal think that this is a special treat or a rare occasion.
Seafood recipes can be a total blast to prepare! When entertaining guest or family members, include them in the action. Most people have not had the chance to wrestle the live lobster before it is cooked, they are also not familiar with everything that goes into a New England Style Clambake. This is just one Quality Fresh Seafood item that can be prepared quickly and easily. There are also other taste seafood treats like mussels, clams, clam chowder, lobster bisque as well as King Crab Legs. To get some great ideas about what types of recipes are available, just visit the Seafood Recipe section on the website. And... as always, enjoy!

Eating right and maintaining a healthy weight is not all that difficult. In fact, I am very sure most of you already know pretty well what is best. By cooking healthy meals from weight loss recipes and participating in sports activities, you should find losing weight not a problem at all.
Start by adopting an approach for losing weight naturally. Stick to a diet that is high in complex carbohydrates and fibre, but moderate in protein, and low in fat. I have included some free weight loss recipes for you to demonstrate how to achieve that.
Many people believe that "no fat" means "non-fattening." However, the truth is, you are often getting just as many calories from the no-fat version, and those calories may not coming from fat. So, do not be misled and start to believe that you can eat any amount of the foods that are advertised as "fat-free". Instead, eat healthy food prepared using the weight loss recipes.
The best way to respond to hunger is with healthful snacks such as a slice of whole-grain toasted bread. Instead of skipping meals, eat snacks. Just remember that if you want to lose weight naturally, you have to keep track of every food you eat and of every activity that you do. Learn to cook healthy and delicious from weight loss recipes. That is also one way to motivate yourself.
Below are some simple weight loss recipes for healthy snacks:
Avocado, cheese, and flavoured tuna
1 small tin of flavoured tuna
1 avocado block cheese (your choice depends on your preference)
How to Prepare:
Quite easy. I just thought it up the other day and I haven't tried it yet but it sort of gives a substitute instead of using cracker biscuits.
Slice the cucumber to reasonable thickness. Put a slice of cheese on the cucumber. Then some avocado then finally some flavoured tuna on top. Great snack!
Zero Carbs Chicken Wings
3 lbs. chicken wings
6 T. Hot Sauce
1 Stick Butter
2 qts. cooking oil
Lawry's Seasoned Salt
How to Prepare:
WINGS: Cut whole wings at joints and discard tips. Sprinkle wings liberally with Lawry's Seasoned Salt. Deep fry until golden brown and crispy. Drain on paper towels.
SAUCE: Combine melted butter and hot sauce in a large bowl, mix well. Add wings and coat evenly.
This recipe is for mild wings-add extra hot sauce for more heat. Serve with bleu cheese and celery.
Bacon and Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms
8 oz cream cheese,
softened 5 or 6 slices of bacon,
1 small onion, chopped - or less
15-20 large mushrooms
How to Prepare:
Preheat oven to 350.Take the stems out of your mushrooms, reserving 4 or 5. Clean your mushrooms well and set aside.
Chop your onion well, and chop up the reserved stems.
Fry your bacon til crisp, reserving the grease. Cook your onion and stems until tender in the bacon grease. Drain the grease and add onions/stems to the softened cream cheese. Crumble your bacon in cheese mixture. Combine well. Scoop some into each mushroom cap. Bake for about 10-15 minutes on baking sheet with edges, then broil to brown the tops. YUMMY! Great refrigerated and reheated in oven the next day!

Everybody loves Pizza worldwide right? The delicious savory smell of the cheese and the tomatoes and all the other toppings and herbs. If you're not already heading off towards the direction of the refrigerator, stick around and listen up for a moment. The problem is that most Pizzas have a relatively high saturated fat content - and that's bad news if you are trying to look after your heart health, or you are battling against high blood LDL Cholesterol levels.
The British Heart Foundation recommends a total daily fat intake of 95 grams for men and 70 grams for women. If you eat a half of a typical stuffed crust 14 inch pepperoni Pizza you will consume approximately 75 grams of fat. So you could regularly way exceed your daily fat limit with the additional dietary fat intake from other foods during the rest of the day. If you have been told to avoid cheese you may despair as you suffer that craving for your favourite food - Pizza!
What if there was a type of Pizza that was not only friendly to your heart health, but actually REDUCED your Cholesterol level, the more you ate (within reason). Sounds too good to be true? Well the good news for pizza lovers everywhere is that it is now possible. Unbelievable - a heart healthy Pizza packed with healthy ingredients that is kind to your heart and health.
A new type of Cholesterol lowering cheese.
The breakthrough came with the introduction of a new type of cheese, which has all the flavour of a mature cheddar, but can be used as a topping for Pizza or Lasagna. In the United Kingdom this product is known as miniCol. This is a healthy alternative to 'normal' cheese and is perfectly safe to eat or cook with, for people with concerns about cholesterol levels.
The difference between traditional cheddar and miniCol is that miniCol is made from milk, which has had virtually all of its dairy fat removed and replaced with wheatgerm oil, which is high in polyunsaturated fat and plant sterols. Most plants contain Sterols which are natural substances found as component parts of certain vegetable oils. Plant sterols are effective in lowering cholesterol by blocking the absorption of cholesterol from the diet, and also by stopping the re-absorption of cholesterol produced by the liver. Studies have shown that miniCol is proven to be capable of reducing blood cholesterol levels.
You can find out motre information about miniCol here: href="http://www.emmi-minicol.ch/news/">http://www.emmi-minicol.ch/news/
Pizza Margherita Recipe (enhanced)
This recipe is for a basic 14 inch Pizza Margherita, but you can easily add further healthy toppings such as tuna, chicken or extra lean beef (raw meat to be marinated and precooked). Because you make it yourself you know and control what goes into it. The manufacturers recommended daily amount of miniCol Cheese is 65 grams per person, so the recipe contains 130 grams - enough for 2 servings.
You have two choices for the base - you can either make your own using one of the excellent home bread making machines now available, or buy a pre-made pizza base from the grocery store.
Dough (enough for 2 Pizzas)
- Water - 1 cup
- Strong Bread Making Flour - 3 Cups
- Dried Milk Powder - 2 Tablespoons
- Sugar - 2 Teaspoons
- Low Sodium Salt Substitute - 1 Teaspoon
- Yeast - 2 ½ Teaspoons
All you need to do to make the dough is to throw all these ingredients into the breadmaker and hit the 'pizza dough' button. An hour or so later you will have a ball of dough ready to roll into a pizza base.
Rest of Pizza
- Tomato Paste Tube
- 4 cloves of garlic - finely chopped
- 1 Teaspoon of Ground Black Pepper
- Mixed Herbs - 2 Tablespoons
- 1 Onion - chopped
- 2 tomatoes- sliced
- 1 onion - sliced
- 1 Green Capsicum - sliced
- Olive Oil
- 130 grams of 'miniCol' cheese - grated
Assembling and cooking the Pizza
- Cut the dough ball into 2 halves. You can freeze one half for another time.
- Spread some flour onto the worktop and coat the dough
- Use a rolling pin and roll out the dough to the size of the Pizza cooking tray
- Spread a small amount of Olive Oil onto the pizza baking tray and rub around with some kitchen towel (this will stop the base from sticking)
- Place the pizza base onto the baking tray
- Spread Tomato paste from the tube evenly around the pizza base
- Sprinkle the freshly chopped garlic evenly into the tomato paste
- Assemble the tomato, onion and capsicum slices evenly around the pizza base
- Sprinkle the black pepper over the ingredients
- Spread the grated cheese over the top of the ingredients
- Sprinkle the mixed herbs onto the top of the cheese - done
The completed Pizza should be baked in the oven at 200 degrees for approx. 10 minutes and served with fresh salad and a glass of red wine.

Are you a smoothie lover? Looking for some new smoothie recipes that use bananas? If so, I would like to share 6 of my favorite banana flavored smoothie recipes with you.
Why are banana smoothies good for you? Bananas are high in potassium and low in sodium making them the ideal healthy fruit. Bananas are great for reducing depression, achieving bone and intestinal health, and for regulating high blood pressure.
All of these smoothie recipes use bananas, along with some additional ingredients. If you are looking to cut calories, you can substitute the milk with skim milk, or the ice cream with low-fat yogurt.
If you like your smoothies really sweet, try adding 1-2 tablespoons of honey to your recipe. I always serve my smoothies in a chilled glass but you can serve them any way that you like. You can drink them straight from the glass, use a straw or eat them with a spoon. It is best to always serve your smoothies immediately.
1 c. cubed peeled ripe mango
3/4 c. sliced ripe banana
2/3 c. milk
1 tsp. honey
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
Combine all of the above ingredients in a blender and process until smooth.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana
1 medium banana
1 1/4 c. milk
1 c. chocolate ice cream
1/4 c. creamy peanut butter
Cut the banana into 1" pieces. Wrap pieces in foil and freeze. Unwrap the banana pieces. In blender container combine banana, milk, chocolate ice cream and peanut butter. Cover and blend until smooth.
5 oz. Frozen blueberries
2 c. ice
1 c. water
Put all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.
1 c. milk
2 scoops vanilla ice-cream
1 ripe banana, sliced
2 Kiwi fruit, peeled and finely diced
Blend the milk, ice-cream, and banana together in a blender till smooth. Add the Kiwi fruit, blend briefly, then pour into glasses.
1/2 sliced cantaloupe melon
1 peeled banana
1 c. vanilla ice cream
1 tbsp. honey
Mix all of the above ingredients in your blender and blend until smooth.
Boysenberry and Banana
3/4 c. boysenberries
1/2 c. low-fat boysenberry yogurt or vanilla yogurt
1/2 banana, sliced
1/2 c. grape juice
Add all ingredients to a blender and puree until well blended (about 1 minute).

We know we should eat healthy. We want what is best for our family. So why don't we eat the way we are supposed to eat? Let's take a look at some of the reasons why we tend to make unhealthy choices along with some helpful suggestions for healthy dinner recipes.
No Time to Make and Eat a Healthy Dinner
In today's society, we are always on the go - working, running errands, driving our children to and from school and extracurricular activities; the list is endless. Grocery stores are turning into food malls. With all the aisles and selections to navigate, we may feel we don't have time to go grocery shopping.
Because most people only have a few minutes to get dinner, they usually choose fast food, which is a convenient, albeit unhealthy choice. As a nation, the U.S. is getting fatter and unhealthier. What we need to combat this dilemma are healthy dinner recipe choices that can be prepared fast.
Quick and Healthy Dinner Choices
There are literally thousands of cookbooks on the market and many of them have exactly what we need: quick and healthy dinner recipes. But if you absolutely can't find the time to make a healthy dinner at home; go to the grocery store. Most supermarkets have an area where they sell roasted chicken and deli meats such as sliced turkey. Both these options can be part of a healthy dinner. Grab a loaf of healthy whole grain bread, a bag of apples, and a gallon of milk and you have something much better for you than a quarter pound hamburger with greasy fries.
Healthy Dinners Save You Money
So you've decided that fast food isn't the way to go. What about a sit-down restaurant? The food looks mouth-watering good! At only $12 a meal, you can have enough to satisfy you for hours. They serve steak, potatoes, pastas... and the desserts are to die for! When you look at their fantastic dinner menu you may want to think about what all the sugar, cholesterol and fat will do to your body.
As far as cost goes: It doesn't cost $12 a person to eat at home. In fact, it doesn't have to cost $12 for an entire meal for 5! What is more, you don't save time this way. How long does it take to drive to the restaurant, wait for a table, wait for the food to be prepared, eat and drive home? In that amount of time you could have made an inexpensive, healthy dinner and eaten it at home.
How to Pick a Healthy Dinner Recipe
- Use recipes that contain low-fat ingredients like fresh vegetables, fruits, lean meat, whole grains and skim milk.
- Choose the freshest ingredients possible.
- Organic foods are grown without the use of pesticides and hormones and are the best food for your body.
It is all about having the best ingredients on hand at home to select and prepare a healthy dinner recipe for your loved ones.
Preparing dinner at home benefits you in more than time, money and health. It allows you priceless, quality time with your family. Sharing a nutritious meal around the family table is one of the many ways of enjoying healthy dinner choices.

Your kids are probably the most important thing in your life. That’s the way it should be. One thing you want to do raising them is preparing them to be as healthy as they can be. Along the way you need to remain creative to keep them from getting bored with their food. Today there are more opportunities than ever to find qualified sources for good healthy eating recipes that may bring renewed enthusiasm to them when eating.
Looking for Healthy Eating Recipes Online
Today online there are many resources in the area of recipes. Among those you will find many sources such as recipe swapping online communities, many books for reasonable prices, government suggestions related to some study, and if you look hard enough you might even find a random recipe generating web page. This hasn’t been proven, but likely exists somewhere.
Not all recipes are the same though. Some taste great but are packed with saturated fats that may linger in some ways when your children are old. Finding healthy eating recipes for the kids in your family might prove a little more challenging.
The Eating Pyramids May Help
There are a several food pyramids that suggest healthy eating balance among different food groups. The USDA offers MyPyramid.gov with resources that somewhat help plan what is needed for food intake based on your childrens age, gender, and activity levels.
The faculty at Harvard’s School of Public Health offers some guidelines to medical professionals that claim to be more in tune to health needs. They definitely distinguish between good and bad fats, as well as suggest more carbohydrates from whole grains. Reading more on this may help you better decide on healthy eating recipes that your children will like.
The Importance of Diet in Physical Fitness
Physical fitness comes from eating well, exercising well within it, and then resting as well. Without these three put together, there will be an imbalance. Too much food without burning it may leave healthy eating recipes useless. Finding the balance between diet and energy burning will indeed help you raise healthier kids as a result.
Kids Have Always Been Picky
In your search for new healthy eating recipes that your children will like, keep in mind that their tastes will change along the way. And taste is what it’s all about. Paying more attention to what they like and don’t like over years will give you a second sense about what healthy eating they will eat. Often sweeter tastes in the early years go well.
Healthy eating recipes that will fill these years well may be better when the sweet taste comes from fruits. Over the years, use your sense when looking for innovative ways to keep your children eating healthy. It doesn’t hurt to look for recipes that might bring new ideas into your own cooking.
One place to look towards healthy eating recipes your children may enjoy is where you are now reading. You should also find more tips on what makes things healthier, and years down the road you can sit back and appreciate the outcomes in your children.

The recipes are designed to be easy to prepare as well as healthy and fun to eat!

Everyone has a different idea as to what makes a good chili. To hardened professionals a good chili may be little more than a well spiced bowl of meat, while others make a chili that more closely resembles spicy vegetable soup. To most people, the standard chili contains beef, tomatoes, beans, and chili powder.
But, what if you don't like beans?
Or you're going low carb? Or you just don't want to fart? The following is a tasty, healthy, chili recipe. No beans included.
2 onions, diced
1 red pepper, diced
2 pasilla peppers, diced
3 lbs beef chuck (cut to 1-inch cubes)
2 Serrano peppers, diced
4 tbsp virgin olive oil
2 tbsp paprika
2 tbsp coriander
2 tbsp dried oregano
1 tbsp cumin
1 tbsp Del Arbol chili powder (or Mexican Red)
6 garlic cloves
1 cinnamon stick
2 (28 oz) cans whole tomatoes, crushed
1 can beef broth
3 tbsp canned chipotle chile, diced
grated pepper jack
dollop of sour cream
In a large pot, heat half the olive oil with the diced onions and peppers. Cook at medium heat for about 10 minutes or until the onions begin to caramelize.
In a separate skillet, use the other 2 tbsp of olive oil to brown the cubed beef. After the beef is browned, use a spaghetti strainer to drain off the beef renderings into the trash (Hint: Wad up about 5 paper towels into your trash, pour the renderings into the towels. Otherwise there is a chance the renderings will melt the trash bag.)
Add the browned meat to the onions and peppers, and cook for another five minutes.
Add the rest of the ingredients (except vinegar): paprika, coriander, oregano, chili powder, cumin, cinnamon, garlic, tomatoes, beef broth, and chipotle. Kick the heat up to high, until the chili is boiling. Reduce heat to a simmer (usually lowest heat), cover and cook for an hour and a half, stirring occasionally.
After 1.5 hours, remove meat, shred with a fork, and add it back to the pot. Cook for a final 10 minutes uncovered, and add the red wine vinegar right before serving. Garnish as desired. Serves Six.

Use Kosher salt. It has less sodium than regular table salt. But the healthiest alternative is using lime juice, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar and other various herbs and spices instead of salt.

Fry, bake, broil or roast your meats.

Use peanut oil or at least canola oil.

Use cooking spray.
7. Instead of cooking chicken with the skin:
Consider removing the skin from chicken before cooking and marinate to add flavor and moistness. By removing the skin you eliminate artery clogging cholesterol.

For more than twenty years, Barefoot Contessa, the acclaimed specialty food store, has been cooking and baking extraordinary dishes for enthusiastic customers in the Hamptons. For many of those years, people have tried to get the exuberant owner, Ina Garten, to share the secrets of her store. Finally, the energy and style that make Barefoot Contessa such a special place are shown here, with dozens of recipes and more than 160 breathtaking photographs, in The Barefoot Contessa Cookbook.
Ina's most popular recipes use familiar ingredients, but they taste even better than you would expect. Her Pan-Fried Onion Dip is the real thing, with slowly car-amelized onions and fresh sour cream. Tomato soup is created from oven-roasted tomatoes and fresh basil to intensify the flavors. Meat loaf is as good as your grandmother's, but it's healthier because it's made with ground turkey and fresh herbs. The light and flaky Maple-Oatmeal Scones are baked with rolled oats, whole wheat, and real maple syrup. Now these and other famous Barefoot Contessa recipes can be prepared at home.
Ina says that before she owned a specialty food store she often spent a week making dinner for six friends. Her experience at Barefoot Contessa has given her hundreds of ideas for creating wonderful parties in a few hours. And they're all in this book. Crab Cakes with Rémoulade Sauce can be stored overnight in the refrigerator and sautéed just before the guests arrive. Cheddar Corn Chowder can be made days ahead, reheated, and served with a salad and bread for a delicious autumn lunch. The ingredients for Grilled Salmon Salad can all be prepared ahead and tossed together before serving. The batter for the Raspberry Corn Muffins can be mixed a day before and popped into the oven just before breakfast.
Ina Garten teaches us how to entertain with style, simplicity, and a relaxed sense of fun. There are notes throughout the book for giving cocktail parties, lunches, and dinner parties where everything is done before the guests arrive. And there are easy instructions for creating gorgeous party platters that don't even require you to cook!
With Ina Garten and The Barefoot Contessa Cookbook, you have the perfect recipe for hosting parties that are easy and fun for everyone--including the cook.
