Pimento Cheese, Not Your Grandma's Spread

Pimento cheese is one of those foods that has been so corrupted by the food industry that it has become synonymous with other crappy foods like Spam.  I'm not even certain what store bought pimento cheese might contain, nor do I want to find out.  It's a shame because pimento cheese can be a delightful treat, even if it does Read the full post…

Plum Good BBQ Sandwiches

In a few days it will officially be fall but the temperatures are still warm enough for me to continue swimming for a few more days.  The breeze was a little cool but that didn't stop me from swimming several laps this morning and I felt great afterwards!  Have you exercised lately?  With fall's cooler temperatures and fewer insects, you Read the full post…

Shingles Vacine and Treatment

A friend of mine was recently diagnosed with shingles so I felt I should discuss this nasty virus once again.  If you ever had chicken pox, you are at risk for getting shingles and believe me, you don't want it.  Shingles is a painful rash with blisters that scab over and may take 4 weeks or more to heal.  The Read the full post…

Vegetarian Tacos are muy delicioso!

There are times when I think I could easily become a vegetarian, especially when I try a new dish that is as good as the vegetarian tacos I had at Local Lime restaurant in Little Rock and the tofu fried rice at Sai Tai here in Jonesboro.  My husband and I celebrated our 23rd anniversary this past weekend by spending Read the full post…

Vacation Lessons For A Healthier Life

  I'm back from a lovely beach vacation and I wish I was still there with all my heart.  Wouldn't it be nice if our every day life was as nice as a vacation?  If we could relax, eat well, sleep and exercise just enough without having to worry about bills, work, illnesses and school, our lives would be perfect.  But Read the full post…

Other Blogs

[ Post by Lisa Tedder ][ Post on February 16, 2012 ][ In Diet Tips and Better Eating Ideas ]

I am always reading.  I check the news on MSN, I read the local paper, books and magazines.  I also watch local TV and national news, and Good Morning America.  I can’t go to sleep at night until I’ve read for a few minutes, either fiction or non-fiction.  I like to keep up with what’s happening.  Since I was up early this morning (5 a.m.) but not functioning enough to write, I checked out a few other blogs.  I don’t follow many blogs but recently I came across two that I think are worthwhile to share.

Both are well written and interesting, especially from a foodie’s point of view and from a healthy one too.  I am always looking for new ideas and better ways to cook at home and these offer ideas in abundance.  You may want to check them out as well.  The first one is written by a man in Canada who has discovered a love of cooking and eating well.  In other words, a man after my own heart.  Some of his recipes do NOT make the heart or waist healthy list, but some do.  Some of his recipes contain ingredients that will not be found in our little hamlet such as birds eye chilies.  (Readers, correct me if you’ve seen birds eye chillies locally, though after my chipolte experience, I’m not sure I want to see them.)  Indeed I was surprised to see that he even had one of the same recipes that I do – Pizza Dip.  I have not tried any of his other recipes but I will soon such as the cucumber and feta rolls.  Check out closetcooking.com by Kevin Lynch.   He has a sly sense of humor as well, as he claims to cook in a tiny closet sized kitchen.

The other blog I was immediately attracted to because the writer, a mother like me, tries to find healthy ways to feed her family and aims for a rainbow a day for good nutrition.  She has a vast collection of recipes including some which are vegan or gluten free.  I am trying her creamed corn buttermilk bread tonight.  I like that it has whole wheat flour in it.  Look for her at ricekernel.wordpress.com.

Both blogs have gorgeous photographs of which I am jealous.  Hopefully my own photos will continue to improve as I learn more about my new camera.  Anyway, I think you will enjoy these blogs if you like to cook as I do.  Check them out today and try something new this weekend!

I’d like to mention a new local magazine that two friends of mine have collaborated on – Mid-South Latino.  This bi-lingual magazine is aimed at the growing Latino population in Northeast Arkansas and Southeast Missouri.  I am honored that they have chosen to include my articles in their publication.  If you are interested in reaching the Latino market for your business, you can contact Susan Ishmael or Alex Lorenzana at MSL@masterprintgroup.com.

    It is difficult to photograph food – I find myself with the same problem. Most kitchens do not have amount of natural light needed for a fantastic photo. Who would have thought that learning to bake would require learning how to edit a photo!
