The world today is getting increasingly more fast paced by the minute. Everyone appears to be very busy and does not even stop for a moment when they are on the move. Being like that makes someone ignore other little things, and either lose a bit or fully forget time for themselves. One good example is preparing food for themselves, particularly when living alone. However, along with innovations in gadgets and other things,there has been alternatives in enjoying quality food that’s fit for a good meal in a fine dining restaurant – in the actual comfort of your home or office.
People have been hiring their personal or private chefs – and it has been an excellent alternative in going to fancy restaurants, fast food, or instant meals. Still Hungry?
Joel D, on the birth of his daughter:
“The idea of being a parent is exciting but it’s a little scary; what if you get it wrong? There’s so much you have to know and so many things you have to decide.”
Parents’ lives change when a child is born. Right from the start they need to make decisions: bottle or breast feeding; carriage or stroller; nanny or day care, work or stay at home; and the list goes on. As children grow older, the decisions don’t stop; they change — school, meals, allowances, after-school activities, friendships, holidays. Although solutions to these individual daily dilemmas are important, it’s the parents’ overall style and attitude that count as they influence, teach and socialize their children. Keep Reading
Many professional athletes take every possible step to reach their optimum level of health and to maximize the intake of the proper vitamins and minerals that the body needs to operate at a high level day in and day out. However as people become more in tune with the improvements that a good diet can have on ones health dietitians and personal chef services become increasingly sought after. The increase in this focus on diet as an improvement on total health is three fold. It increases the human bodies ability to sustain energy over long periods of time, lowers the overall effects of stress on the body and allows faster recovery.

So, you all have heard I am doing a cross country trip with my family for the month of December 12 – January 12th 2012. We’re ringing in the New Year in Austin, Texas – celebrating the Festival of Lights in Arlington and Great Falls, VA and Christmas in Washington DC! My husband’s birthday will fall somewhere between New York City (where we’re eating for a few days) and Chicago… In the meantime I am keeping copious food notes via Foodspotting when I have a brief moment of internet and/or clarity. Thus far, the 22nd of December, I realize I haven’t posted since 2 weeks before my trip began (and the crunch of getting ready to go!) So here’s my news and a link to get you on the journey, with me. You can also check out my twitter stream – I’m mControl and happy to be your guide this month!
Chef52 beta, is coming soon… to a tummy near you.
Gluten-free challah represents a bit of a ‘Holy Grail’ for #GF Jews. There’s no obvious substitute for tearing apart and sharing bread with your friends and family, and for many who are gluten intolerant, it becomes painfully obvious each Friday at sundown when they must hover for Shabbat prayers around a cutting board bearing a hot, delicious braided challah.
One writer stated, “The first time I had to sing the hamotzi over a rice cracker while everyone else ripped apart the bread, I cried.”
Edited to add: I was recently ‘schooled’ on my #GF flours – and spelt is a TYPE OF WHEAT!!! Leave it to the non-GF girlfriend to blow it! So it is NOT GF! Further… my Tom Sawyer Flour is made of RICE flour (I suppose that’s sort of an ancient grain) not spelt, at all. And while I could simply change all the text to reflect my new found information, I’d rather remain transparent and let you all know, I’ve learned from my mistakes! So while my friends won’t be crying over their rice buns they may be breaking their rice flour challah if they follow my recipe!
And I know there are a good many others who’d enjoy a yummy Challah or brioche that is GLUTEN FREE! There is such a deep and abiding cultural importance to baking bread, steeped in rich traditions for our family and we longed to find a bread we could share with every family member during the holiday. Challah is a very specific style and type of bread – and one I feared would not translate to ancient grains. But the more I speculated, the more excited I became at the concept. Hello? Ancient Grains. Ancient recipes. Duh. Spelt! BUT – :::screeching brakes sound::: what about that innate ‘rippability’ that only the best challah embodies? Would spelt flour give me that? I have Tom Sawyer’s GF flour that is made entirely with spelt! *edited above now that we have learned first our flour is not made from spelt but rice and second that SPELT is NOT Gluten Free (more…)
Parents, from generations, have been telling their kids to have a healthy breakfast. Medical Science has now confirmed it that children who eat healthy breakfast show better progress in education and sports in comparison to those who do not. Healthy children, in other words, have a habit of eating nutritious breakfast food. In this one of my many breakfast articles, I would try to explain why breakfast is important for children health.
Unlike most other meals that we prepare, making breakfast does not ask for a lot of time, and a high level of expertise. It is a portable meal. Your child can grab a healthy bit on his way to school. Believe it or not, but breakfast is definitely the most FLEXIBLE meal of the day. (more…)
We devour our food first with senses other than taste before we actually try a dish. So I’m fair certain I don’t have to tell you how important it is to take great food photos, particularly if you are writing a foodie blog. I know I eat first with my eyes and it’s much harder to get me all hot and bothered over a dish if an unappetizing photo sits next to it. Just like in a restaurant – if the dish presented looks incredible you begin salivating before lifting your fork – you want to photograph it to remember its perfection and when you look back at that photo on your iPhone, you hope the lighting is able to show your friends just how good the dish actually was.
I know tons of blog writers feel that they don’t have the time or perhaps even, the proper resources to accomplish beautiful food or product photographs, but I’m telling you that if I can do it, so can you. And I learn something new every single day that helps my pictures get better and better! I hope you’ll agree and share your tips with us in the comments! Learn More
