The most amazing remedy in the world--and you don’t have to cook a thing. If you take showers, you can do this one.

Wise Guy Chili

My Uncle Ralph, a true wise guy, used to make the best chili.

A very heart healthy cooking recipe.

Quinoa Tabouleh with Avocado

Cooking with Quinoa!
I was never a big fan of tabouleh because I did not care for the wet texture of it. My husband loves it so I had to figure out a way to work it into my cooking. So I tried the classic recipe with quinoa in place of bulgur and viola! I fell in love with tabouleh.
