Happy New Year!!!!!!!!!



On this first day of 2012, I resolve to do and be better than I did in 2011 with the intention that I will progress closer to being the person I was created to be.

Please take a moment to watch this video. It not only makes me incredibly happy, it reminds me that we are capable of so much more than we ever imagined. If we'll only get out there and try.

God bless you and keep you throughout the coming year. May all your resolutions be fulfilled.

Happy New Year Suzanne.

Personally, I think you acheived a HUGE amount in 2011 - I think if you sit down and write out all the things you did in 2011, you'll see there are a string of 'firsts' and great things done by you - should be proud of them all - I sure am of you for doing them.

Big hugs to you and yours xxx M

Collard Greens with White Beans - A Vegetarian Take on a Classic

Could a vegetarian version of collard greens ever compete with the traditional goodness of collard greens cooked with a smoked ham hock?

I was skeptical until I made this recipe. It is every bit as delicious. Taking the place of the ham hock is the rind of parmesan or other hard cheese. I keep a small plastic bag of cheese rinds in the freezer, they are the perfect flavor enhancer of stocks and soups, and now collard greens.

Similar recipes call for dried beans, but sine I live 10,400 feet above sea level, dried beans are always a challenge unless I'm using a pressure cooker. For this recipe, I opted for canned beans and am just as happy as can be.

This recipe is quick, easy, delicious, and so rich and satisfying a bowlful with a slice of garlicky olive oil toasted bread makes the perfect week night dinner. It is also a satisfying side dish.

Let's get cooking!

1 bunch of collard greens, touch center stems removes, leaves torn into large pieces

Dinner with Julia

What do Ina Garten and Martha Stewart have in common? Both women describe cooking through Julia Child’s Mastering the Art of French Cooking when they were young as foundation to learning to cook.
Julia Child is an inspiration to most home cooks of a certain age. I found her so inspiring that at one time, I had all of her cookbooks, including a first edition of Mastering the Art of French Cooking, and had read almost every biography written about her, My Life in France, being my favorite. And yet! I confess that until this week, my cooking adventures in Mastering were limited to her omelet recipe, her iconic recipes for onion soup and Beef Bourguignon.
When the Food52 Cookbook Club on Facebook chose Mastering as its cookbook for the month, I jumped at the chance to finally use Julia’s first cookbook for its intended purpose.
I decided to start with something easy, a poached egg. I purchased the best organic eggs I could afford, read the recipe several times, and began. After I’d tur…
