The winter holidays are just around the corner. And we're sure you're as busy as we all are trying to prepare gifts, holiday dishes, and our homes to entertain our family and friends. This past Thanksgiving we posted an allergy-friendly recipe, so we wanted to continue that tradition and share a dish from Laura's new book: The Diabetes Comfort Food Diet Cookbook. We chose the Roasted Vegetable Macaroni and Cheese recipe, because its diabetes-friendly and a great comfort food for the snowy nights to come. We hope you and your families enjoy a happy and healthy holiday season!
One recent article that really stood out for us discussed eliminating the infamous (and sometimes dreaded) “kids’ table.” I don’t know about you but, as a child, I remember spending all of my holiday dinners at the kids’ table! So, should we lose the kids table or continue to use it?
We've been searching for great gifts to give to our coworkers, friends, and families this holiday season. We love the idea of making gifts in place of purchasing gifts. And sometimes all you need is a batch of freshly baked cookies to make a great gift. We found this wonderful recipe for PB&J Cookies from our friends over at Cooking Light and we can't wait to wrap them up in festive holiday gift bags and send them on their merry way!
Let’s set the scene. Just two years ago, my kids refused to eat turkey and mashed potatoes as well as all the other traditional Thanksgiving fixings. Well, we’ve come a long way during the past two years as my children tasted, refused and sometimes even protested about trying new foods. But this past Thanksgiving served as a milestone holiday for my family.
I don’t know about you but I still have quite a bit of turkey leftover from Thanksgiving dinner. We’ve been eating sandwiches all weekend and wanted to try something different to use up the last of the turkey. Luckily, with a bit of recipe searching I was able to whip up a quick, and tasty, Leftover Turkey Soup...
With Thanksgiving just around the corner, the idea of family meals surely must be on your mind. For many people, Thanksgiving conjures warm feelings because it’s consistently about meals featuring family members, good friends, and yummy food. Are these the same thoughts that come to mind when thinking about family meals? Are you even able to have family meals especially during the regular work/school week? Most people now know that family meals are not only beneficial but also very much encouraged by the experts. How does this translate to your daily life?
With Hanukkah just over a week away, we wanted to share a fun recipe that is sure to be a hit at your upcoming holiday party! We've swapped the potatoes for cauliflower in this dish, however, you could easily split the recipe to have half potatoes and half cauliflowers. The choice is yours!
