by in Recipes, March 28th, 2017

Chicken, Sausage, Pepper and Onion Fake-BakeThere’s something so satisfying about serving a warm casserole for dinner, especially when it covers all the bases by combining a protein, grain and vegetable. But there’s more to love about the casseroles we’re talking about today: You can almost always prep them ahead of time or double them up as you go. Make one for now, and save the other in the freezer for later or for a friend.

by in In Season, Recipes, March 25th, 2017

Roasted AsparagusSomething new has happened in our house this year. We’ve become a two-bundle family — in terms of asparagus, this is.

And it’s for the best. Now if I could just decide on which of these dishes to start with.

Can You Guess Which Country Is the Healthiest in the World?Pasta lovers, rejoice. Living (and eating!) like an Italian could be the key to a long, healthy life.

Geographically, Italy may sit in the southern part of Europe, but its health is apparently tops. The Mediterranean nation is No. 1 on the newly released Bloomberg Global Health Index, a ranking of 163 countries by healthfulness around the globe.
