Since Thanksgiving is just around the corner, I read a great article in New York Magazine showcasing New York City’s top chefs. They talk about what their favorite childhood Thanksgiving dish was. Not only do you find out what their favorite dishes are, but it also includes the recipes as well. Mario Batali’s apple pie, Tom Colicchio’s sausage stuffing with golden raisins and sage as well as Alfred Portale’s roasted cauliflower salad with fresh goat cheese! (My sister loves everything goat cheese, so I know she’d love that recipe!) Click HERE for the article and gorgeous food photos.
Also, I wanted to give a shout out to my friend Keith Ahrens. Please take a moment to check out his new website and see some great new features. For those of you who don’t know, Keith has lost an astounding 200 pounds and is on a mission to spread the word on how to prevent heart disease. I profiled his success story, and he continually impresses me with his determination to keep the weight off.
And, I would like to introduce you to another website: www.angelabarton.com. Who is Angela Barton? Not a food blogger, or a chef, but a woman who in January of 2009 set out to not buy anything new for one year! She loved it so much she continues the practice. It’s about leaving less of a carbon imprint, learning to live with less and loving it, being resourceful and all the things she’s learned in the process. If you want to save more money, or just read about how she lives her life it’s a great read!! I left a comment and she put that comment in her blog post today, so I thought that was cool!
Have you read her book yet? I’ll let you know what I think of it when I am done.
In fact, now I am going to watch Biggest Loser right now, so come back tomorrow and I will share my awesome crock pot chicken tacos. I love coming home from work and having dinner almost done!!
