The other day I tuned in to The View and a certain “celebrity” chef from a particular food-focused network was teaching Sherri how to healthy-up her lasagna. This included replacing white flour lasagna noodles with whole wheat ones (fine) replacing the ground meat with seared salmon (um…) and the ricotta cheese with no-fat cottage cheese. Sherri asked the person preparing the dish why they would sub cottage cheese for ricotta. A brief pause betrayed a moment of “I have no idea. QUICK! Make something up!!” And the reply? To millions of ladies trying to slim down? “Its better for you.” Oh, really?
When my husband and I first met, I fell in love with his spontaneity. I was teaching middle school and the day before I left Brooklyn for Thanksgiving at my parents’ house, we got a beer at the bar we met in and I asked, “Want to camping in February?” We’d practically just met at the time and without pause, he said, “Yes!” A true testament to his sense of adventure.
If you are feeling amorous this Valentine’s Day, consider an easy-to-prepare, romantic dinner for your lover, prepared at home for under $100. These are the recipes that I wrote for the Daily Connection and the cooking segment I shot will air on NBC in Washington D.C. at 3pm on Friday. Not in DC? That’s okay! I’ll post a link to the video as soon as it airs!
