Chinese Hot Pots

Every Asian country has their own version of noodle soup. Actually, EVERY country I can think of has a signature noodle soup! China alone, has hundreds of variations based on regional culture and resources. In China soups are thought to hold healing properties and noodles are a system of longevity. A noodle soup is therefore taken very seriously, as are most dishes!

Defining Healthy

Roasted Red Pepper Aioli and Steamed Artichokes.

January is the most diet-friendly month of the year. After New Year's Day there are no major (American) holidays involving food.

A Second Helping of Salad

Gnocchi and Wilted Spinach Salad.

Ok, ok, OK, ok, okay, OKAY! So this isn't the lightest salad to start off the New Year. I admit it! BUT it IS the salad that will have everyone asking for seconds and thirds. A double helping of greens, people, doesn't that count for something?
