In real estate terminology, John’s letters do not enjoy the benefits of location, location, location. They’re small, tucked back by the concordance, somewhere after Paul and before Revelation.

At any rate, I love making soups that utilize kale, especially this recipe that marries the texture of kale with the flavorful seasonings of sausage, the heartiness … [Read more...]

One of my favorite things to do while home on a weekend is to cook something warm during the chill of fall. If you're like me, you enjoy the taste of comfort food, but maybe don't want all the repercussions that sometimes come along with food that brings us all that "comfort": sugar, fat, sodium, preservatives, etc. So I love it when I come across a recipe that is comforting, but also healthy at … [Read more...]
