Quick and Easy Beef Stew Recipe

During the winter months (meaning November, December, and January here in Seattle) I get in the mood to slow cook yummy dishes that I dote over lovingly – dishes that bring me through the long winter nights.

But once February rolls around, and the daffodils bloom, and the days are noticeably longer (and warmer), the sunlight calls me to come outside to play. My fading interest in slow cooking is a sure sign that springtime is arriving.

So now that I’m into quick and easy, I wanted to share with you the quickest, easiest beef and root vegetable stew. Ever.

This beef stew took me 10 minutes to prepare. Chop. Chop. Chop. Once the pressure cooker was whooshing away, I was free to bike, play fetch with the dog, sit in the afternoon sun and read, whatever, for the next 40 minutes, only to return to a delicious, savory stew.

Mashed Cauliflower Recipe

This may not sound as tasty as mashed potatoes, but it definitely is, and as comforting, too. Surprisingly, it doesn’t have a cauliflower taste, and people who don’t like cauliflower will enjoy this dish. This dish goes great with baked salmon and a fresh salad.

Cauliflower literally means “cabbage flower” and is part of the cabbage family, as is broccoli. Cauliflower is great for you: it is low in calories and contains many nutritents including fiber, vitamin C, potassium, B6 and folate (although some of the folate is destroyed during the cooking process). It also contains bioflavonoids, indoles, and other phytonutrients thought to be protective against many types of cancer.

Storage fun fact: Store cauliflower heads in the refriderator, stem side up. This keeps moisture from accumulating on the florets which increases shelf life.

While is easier to digest than broccoli, cauliflower still benefits from light cooking. Avoid overcooking as cauliflower becomes mushy and releases sulphurous compounds which give off an unpleasant aroma and a bitter taste. Interesting, it is the sulfur compounds in cauliflower, and other cruciferous vegetables, that are most associated with its cancer protective properties.

Easy Salmon Recipe

I am often asked for an easy, tasty salmon recipe that kids will enjoy. This recipe, which has been passed down for over 60 years, fits the bill. Choose wild Alaskan salmon, along with it being high in healthy omega-3 fatty oils, it is sustainably harvested and has low levels of mercury and other toxins. Canned wild Alaskan salmon is a less expensive alternative and works well for this recipe.

Healthy snack idea…eggs!

Planning and preparing food for the week ahead is an important aspect to maintaining your goals for a healthy diet. Having healthy foods available makes it easier to avoid poor food choices.

Eggs are an affordable, nutrient-rich food. They contain the highest quality source of protein as well as nearly every essential vitamin and mineral. They also contain nonessential nutrients like choline, which is essential for normal brain development and memory, and lutein and zeaxanthin, two anti-oxidants from the carotenoid family, that contribute to eye health by  protecting eyes from ultraviolet rays, reducing the risk of age-related macular degeneration, and decreasing  risk of developing cataracts.

Yummy Raw Hummus Recipe

Sprouted legumes have a stunning amount of nutrients compared to their dried/cooked counterparts. By some estimates thiamin levels increase 5-fold, niacin doubles, vitamin E and caratene levels increase, and there is more vitamin C than in a tomato. Enzymes become activated making proteins and starches more digestible and, therefore, less gas-producing (always a good thing).

Cheesy salsa tilapia fillets

A recipe for adding fish to your diet: Tiliapia – a great choice!

Fish is an excellent source of high quality, easily digestible protein. Some, but not all, fish are high in omega-3 essential oil – like salmon or sardines. Adding fish to your family’s diet is a healthy choice…if you make the right choice. There are many issues to consider when choosing which fish to consume, including:

Apple Pie Doughnuts

For some reason, I have been on a doughnut kick lately. I usually bake my doughnuts, but frying anything is always better. And it’s not bad if you do not do it often..or at least I like to tell myself.

I like doughnuts because they are a sweet treat that you can eat at any time. They are also relatively easy to make, especially if you have a doughnut cutter. Buying a doughnut cutter is worth it if you like to make homemade doughnuts.

Once the dough is made, you are already halfway finished with the recipe. After the dough has stiffened a bit make sure you have a well floured surface ready. This dough can stick. Cut the doughnuts out and then they are ready to fry. See I told you…Easy!

French Beignets

A couple of weeks ago, I went to New Orleans for a quick getaway. All the way there, I kept thinking about getting a beignet from Café Du Monde. I love these things! Beignets are French deep fried pastries with powdered sugar on top. They are very popular in New Orleans.

Here is a look at my beignet from Café Du Monde….Doesn’t it look heavenly.
