SOS - I thought keeping basil in a cup of water would prevent it from wilting. Any other ideas?
DietIDdietitian Try placing fresh rinsed leaves between sheets of damp paper towels or tucked between the fold of a large damp tea towel. Store in the refrigerator. The jar trick might work better if you cover it...
Steamed, packaged lentils are my trick to making a filling salad
Basic salads are my pet peeve! I found these steamed lentils at Trader Joe’s, and the not only bulk up a salad with no extra prep, but they are super affordable! This box lasts me all week!
An easy way to get veggies into breakfast - use dosa batter!
My son wanted an uttapam with his breakfast. No problem! I was able to get coriander and tomatoes in without any protest!
When I’m craving sweets, I do this instead!
Pitted dates, a dollop of unsalted peanut butter, and a dash of cinnamon. The kids will eat these “date boats” for dessert too!
Daily harvest smoothie - this one was spectacular
Banana, parsnip, almond, dark chocolate, cashew, and flax seed. Not all the shakes are this delicious but this one really hit the spot!
DianaO Thanks for sharing! I may need to order some. My boys have been enjoying homemade chocolate smoothies but time doesn't always allow me to make them -- that one you had from Daily Harvest sounds...
reneeeats Yes this definitely hit the spot! Can’t say this is an affordable long term solution but it’s a great way to fill in gaps during busy weeks and also get tested recipe inspiration.
3rd snow day in a row means we make lazy breakfast- uttapam!
This is a traditional South Indian rice and lentil pancake. The trick is the Indian store sells ready to use batter. Just add diced tomatoes, onions, chili, or coriander. My kids won’t eat onions i...
DietIDdietitian Looks so good! How is uttapam different from dosa?
reneeeats The batter is a little thicker, and when cooking, just pour the batter and don’t spread it.
Love adding sumac to salads!
This spice is the perfect combination of spice and tartness, and elevated any homemade salad
DietIDdietitian This looks delicious! I love sumac too -- it's definitely underused, but it's so delicious, and a powerful anti-oxidant to boot! I often add it while sauteeing onions, and then use them as a...
reneeeats Great idea with the onions! I’ll try that next time
DianaO Such a colorful and gorgeous salad!
Dinner for 4 in 15 minutes for $15.
What my family of 4 (2 year old, 5 year old, and grownups) are eating for dinner! Ok, say what you will about Trader Joe’s salmon but sometimes when you are in a pinch, if salmon is part of your f...
DianaO You are amazing!!! Seriously salmon dinner in 15 minutes for $15 and pulled it off while doing email?!
Puff pastry for the win!
I was strapped for time and needed to host 25 people of all different ages. I saw all these great puff pastry tarts via NYTimes cooking and decided to try my own. - store-bought puff pastry
Apple roses for Valentine’s Day!
My mom made these delicious apple roses with store bought puff pastry, apricot jam, and honey crisp apples. Super easy way to get fresh fruit into dessert!
DianaO hey look delicious!
