Cooking Healthy Just Got Simple

Kosterina 100 percent organic olive oil

Beauty Brite DisclosureCooking healthier is something I’ve been trying to implement on an ongoing basis for several years now. Extra virgin olive oil is one thing I’ve been trying to incorporate into recipes in place of vegetable oil and other various types of cooking oils.

Kosterina has this beautifully packaged extra virgin olive oil that I’m currently using in my kitchen. The bottle itself is so beautiful that I haven’t even bothered pouring it into the decorative bottle I usually put olive oils in (that pretty green one in the picture). I’ve just left the original Kosterina bottle on the counter with the other decorative ones that I have there. The clear bottle contains vegetable oil and the shorter one is filled with marsala cooking wine that I use when making Chicken Marsala, a favorite dinner dish in my family…. [read more]

Bake Desserts Like A Pro

Beauty Brite Disclosure

I happen to be the Mom who spends most of her time cooking tasty treats in the kitchen for my family and friends.   I personally enjoy cooking and love all things food related! Cooking is such a passion; then we sit down at the table and share about our day. What was our “highs” and “lows” for the day? After dinner, we usually enjoy some great desserts. Even though I love cooking, I have a hard time “baking”. I never buy the right things and just have a hard time creating delicious masterpieces. Baking has NOT been my favorite part of being in the kitchen, I decided to try and fool proof baking box called, Rise Baking.

Great Gifts For The Emerging Chef

Great Gifts For The Emerging Chef

Beauty Brite Disclosure

My daughter is 6 years old, which means she is at the age to show interest in cooking and baking with her momma. She is already asking to help whenever I’m cooking dinner, and it is so much fun to have her by my side in the kitchen. I admit, I still get anxious whenever we are working with knives or hot water or oil. Not wanting to have to run her to the ER whenever we cook dinner, but also not wanting to stifle her creativity, I often wish I knew more kid friendly recipes that she could take the lead in preparing.

Ready to “spice up” your vegetarian dishes? My friend recently turned to a vegetarian diet and I know it can be hard to find things similar to what you are used to. (I remember struggling to find products low in sugar to fit my son’s strict dietary needs.) I have been on the hunt for great tasting organic marinades and dressings for her to enjoy! I know eating right is so important but so is having great tasting foods!… [read more]
