Raw vs. Cooked Veggies

Ever wonder whether raw or cooked veggies are superior, nutritionally speaking? Well, the truth is that it varies based on the individual vegetable!

Recipe: Mini Meatloaves

Anything that is mini-sized is cute, don't you think? In cooking, making miniature versions of foods is also a great way to keep portions in check. As an added bonus, it often speeds up the cooking time. Those are just a few of the benefits of these mini meatloaves. Cooked in a muffin tin, they come together in less than half the time of a traditional meat loaf, are sized-just-right so you get to have 2 of them in a serving, and are cute and fun to boot, if I do say so myself!

Recipe: Chicken Cordon Bleu

I remember as a teenager when I thought eating anything with fat was a bad thing (this is called fat phobia and many of us who were around in the '90's had it thanks to the marketing of fat-free everything), I thought that the only way to make pizza healthier was to elimate the fat in it by topping it with fat-free cheese.
