Stupid Easy Turkey Chili

I feel rather naughty with this post because growing up, we weren’t allowed to use the word stupid.  (Breakin’ the rules, breakin’ the rules!!)  My mother decidedly banned it from the house and if any of us unruly children called each other the “s” word, it was a quick spanking and off to bed with…

Beans beans the magical fruit, the more you eat the more YOU……

If you’ve been following me for any time at all you know that I am a bean freak!  I will eat beans morning, noon and night and don’t really care about the musical side effects.  My husband doesn’t either and on certain very special bean-laden evenings we have terrific toot-offs.  (All of which he wins,…

Score MAJOR brownie points this Mother's Day!

I knew I’d get you with that title because honestly, who doesn’t want to wow their mom, wife, grandma or even daughter this Mother’s Day??? Up until a year ago I held cooking classes every month.  They were wonderful and we cooked all types of food from Thai, Indian, Italian, and Greek to learning how…

Kick your kale into high gear!

Do me a favor right now and take a BIG DEEP BREATH.  (It’s OK, I’ll wait.)  Now one more.  Feels pretty good, right?  That’s the deepest thing we are going to do today.  Recently, I’ve been talking a lot about fear, competition, empowerment and all that totally rad, transformational kinda stuff.  And though we’ve got…

Spring Turnip, Bok Choy Blossom and Pork Stew

I’ve been wanting to write this post for some time now.  However, when the idea first popped into my head about a year ago I immediately shot it down, deciding, “I couldn’t possibly!”  (Insert British accent here.)  Every few months it would appear like an excited puppy asking to be played with.  “Now?”, it asked.  “How…

Makin' sweet chocolaty luv….

If you haven’t already noticed, I’ve been all about revealing secrets recently. So here’s another one…Chocolate is the best boyfriend I’ve ever had.  Seriously!  He protects me from heart disease, high blood pressure and with his natural mood enhancing chocolately goodness, in just one bite he takes me from drab to fab! He never says no to me, is…

Secrets to Super Sexy Salad

I could eat salad every day….and do, actually.  I’m pretty sure Gray and I eat a small farm’s worth of greens every week.  Sometimes when I think about all the cabbage, red leaf, green leaf, butter lettuce, arugula, radishes and fresh herbs I ingest, I really do wonder, “Where does it all go?”  And after a…

CSA Adventures: Turkey Meatball Soup

Another fabulous post from my the newest JamieLiving health coach, Tanya McCausland! We are in the height of winter vegetable season and I totally love it! The main reason is that I’m a serious soup junkie.  And of course winter veggies like carrots, celery, celery root, onions, cauliflower and hearty greens are just BEGGING to…

Roasted Chicken Cassoulet

Cassoulet is for serious people.  Make no mistake, when you put 5 kinds of meat (traditionally pork sausage, pork shoulder, goose, duck and pork skin) into a single dish, you are not messing around.  I, on the other hand, am not a serious person and tend to take things as lightly as I can.  Life just…

CSA Adventures: Asian Bok Choy Salad

My mom is the ultimate improvisational cook – something I truly strive to be. One look in the fridge and cupboard and she can whip up a delicious dinner that will knock your socks off. Me? More often than I would like to admit I sigh, throw my hands in the air and make a…
