    Low Glycemic Index

    Hi All! I have some health issues that I have to eat low glycemic index- basically no white stuff (bread, rice), but lots of whole foods, and whole grains. Slowly digesting carbs. Anyone else have to or like to eat this way and have any good recipes or ideas? Tear

    Hey guys! So, I am celebrating Passover for the first time this year (thanks to my boyfriend and his family :) ) and if you aren't aware, this means no leavened bread for 8 days! And, a lot of matzah (which thank goodness, I like- especially with cream cheese and tomato...mmm...) So, here's...

    Matzo brei

    So, I have a lot of leftover matzo, courtesy of my Jewish boyfriend's family. I actually love matzoh, but I usually just eat it spread with peanut butter or cream cheese, which is delish!! I kind of want to try something new, though. SVS's recent post about matzo brittle got me thinking...

    What did you eat today?

    Just thinking about this.....I absolutely LOVED all of the food I ate today. I think it is interesting to see what people eat in a day, even more so than just for one meal. I sometimes try to balance out my day (like, if I have a dairy heavy breakfast, I'll have fish at dinner, etc....) if...

    I'd rather have my own!

    What do you make where you make it best? What's your dish that you'd always choose your own version of over anyone else's....even a restaurant. For me its eggplant parmesean. I take the time to slice the eggplant thin, squeeze the H20 out, bread and fry them in 100% olive oil, and bake...

    Do you drink?

    Do you drink alcohol? If so, is it an everyday thing? I'm just asking to get a general feel....I have a glass of red wine most nights with dinner, and I often go out with friends and have a few (okay...sometimes a lot) of drinks on the weekends. One of my friends hates having a glass of wine...

    Where's the best place to sell my jewelry online?

    So, I got a beautiful gift of Michal Negrin (an Israeli artist) earrings from a family friend. They retail for about $100, and they are unfortunately just not my style. (Chandalier (sp?) earrings, peach, gold, swarovski crystals in a flower pattern..really very pretty and well made)...

    Cleaning out the pantry for spring!

    So, like many of you foodies, I have accumulated a bunch of items in my pantry and freezer that I need to use up before spring starts. I love cooking with fresh ingredients during that time, and I have so many grains and frozen stuff that I would hate to see go to waste. I'm usually a once a...
