Judging from the sheer volume of used espresso grounds, eggshells and empty San Pellegrino bottles over here, it's easy to see that it's been a productive weekend. (Taking the trash and the recycling out right after I post this...) But before I hop back into the fray, I wanted to share a couple things with you! As a general "heads up" (cliche I know I'm sorry) I wanted to also ask you guys what you think about the little banner graphic headings I've been adding to the posts here recently, please let me know if you like them or not in the comments below this post. I'll keep doing them if you like them, but if they're just getting in the way of your enjoyment, I need to know that too!
First of all, here's a kale recipe which also includes a funny video (and which will include even more photos as I make the prepared-ahead version again today). Hmm I need to make sure I send the kale recipe to my folks. Dad has been crazy about kale since WAYYYY before it was ever "cool". I can remember seeing him hover around a pot of boiling greens at my Great Grandmother's house as a thick chunk of salt pork bobbed in there among the long since bright green greens. Fun fact - those were great greens too, but these days I tend towards less cooked and sometimes even raw (kale slaw variations are a real favorite) preparations. This particular recipe also includes a new tips section for smaller households (new census data seems to suggest that many of us are living in ones, twos or threes) and convenience. (These tips are also useful if you're that ONE person in your household who has made the commitment to eating healthier... while everyone else refuses to change.)
Very excited to share this much-anticipated interview that went up on DragonDoor.com yesterday. I'd actually started working on Dr. Steven Horwitz's interview some time ago, but found that the audio of our telephone interview was so dense with info that I would need extra time to best present it, organize it (I ask questions outside of a logical order sometimes, and these have to be swapped around so that the reader doesn't want to jump through the computer and hit me in the face), and then distill it down to the most critical elements.
