There’s a day for everything it seems. Some we can relate to, some not so much. National English Muffin Day – April 23 — is especially exciting for those of us English muffin lovers!
There is a certain pride and sense of accomplishment that comes from making a nice meal for yourself. It’s an opportunity to experiment with new ingredients and flavor combinations, or to stick to your old favorites, without having to worry about impressing anyone. You get to make exactly what you feel like eating. Cooking for one is like meditating, or writing in a journal, or exercising: it’s a form of self-care that is not completely necessary, but makes life more enjoyable.
Sometimes, when you’re busy at the end of the day, it may seem easier to order and pick up takeout than it is easy to cook up a delicious, plant-powered meal. But some of the tastiest one-dish recipes can be whipped up in 30 minutes or less.
The holiday season is officially upon us! Our Cool Food Panelist Katie Workman shares her own ways to keep balance during the busy holiday season.
The holidays are quickly approaching but National Stuffing Month is already here! That’s right – November is National Stuffing Month. Depending on your personal experiences, “stuffing” could mean various things to different people (or they could call it “filling” or “dressing”).
We all have places to be and things to do during the busy back-to-school season. Making time for family meals is important, too. As a Together Counts™ partner, we recognize that 20 minutes at the dinner table as a family can make a big impact on establishing healthy eating habits for your children. While our schedules are ever changing, preparing family dinner doesn’t have to be another dreaded item on your to-do list. Knowing how to navigate your grocer’s freezer aisle will help you get a budget-friendly, balanced meal together in no time.
A healthier you includes squeezing more fruits & vegetables into meals and snacks. No sweat! They’re super convenient when purchased frozen and perfectly-portioned for each meal occasion.
The holidays are over, and with any luck you have tossed all the leftover sweets that were lingering on your kitchen counter. Long gone are the sweet potato casseroles, the mashed potatoes and the cranberry sauce that were jam-packed in the fridge. It’s January, and it’s time to take back your freezer and fridge!
Our spokesperson Katie Workman—NYC mom and cookbook author— has shared her favorite holiday mealtime hacks, including how best to utilize frozen and dairy products for cost-effective and delicious holiday meals. From television appearances to radio interviews and blog Q&As, Katie shared her tips and tricks for mastering shortcut cooking and baking during the holiday season. See below for a full recap, and be sure to put these time- and money-savers to use this season and during holidays to come!
Thanksgiving might be the best food holiday of the year, but the anticipation and high expectations can also make it the most daunting. This year, take the stress and worry out of the holiday by prepping the menu ahead of time. Whether you make the same dishes year after year or are creating new traditions, menu prep in advance of the big day is essential.
