I had the opportunity to do another cooking segment on Fox News – WJBK. Today I prepared all vegetarian dishes for their “Meatless Monday” segment. Below is a link to see the video. The recipes are also listed on their website.
Thursday May 2 – Sunday May 5 2013
I will be doing demos today at 2:30, Sat at 12:30 and Sun at 12:30. Hope you can make it! It’s a great show that they put on with lots to see, do….and shop
I just posted a new pic from today. What a great group of people I got to demo for! Can’t wait for tomorrows.
As many of you know, I am a firm believer in using the freshest and healthiest ingredients in my cooking. It’s not always possible, but I do my best.
Last night I had the honor of teaching an Asian Fusion class at Whole Foods Market in Ann Arbor (through the Ann Arbor parks and rec dept.). For those of you who aren’t fortunate enough to have a Whole Foods in your market, or aren’t familiar with it, it is a state of the art, full service natural foods grocery store. They have everything from an in-house bakery, deli, smokehouse, sushi and noodle bar, certified organic produce & hormone and antibiotic free meats…and much, much more!
Going to Whole Foods is not just a shopping trip, it is an experience. Thank goodness for stores like this that offer us the opportunity to easily access so many healthy ingredients and products! I have provided you with some links below to their website, and my teaching info for future classes through AAReced. Have a healthy cooking weekend!
You don’t have to have the perfect plot to grow a garden! If they can create one in the city, on the top of a building with cinder blocks…..so can YOU! Last year we tested our (small) garden. We have a lot of deer and critters around our house, so we weren’t sure how it would do. With our make shift raised bed, stakes and chicken wire, we were able to create a simple, but successful garden. This is why we feel confident about expanding our garden this season. I have been saving my egg cartons to start growing my seeds indoors (which we will be doing this weekend). Now is the perfect time. I am hearing that a good time to plant (or transplant seedlings) outdoors is Mid-May. Our new garden should be ready by then. Can’t wait to share the progress with you. Good Luck with your own gardens!
It’s been a busy week! I shot 16 new cooking videos this week. Some are already edited and up on my Youtube (www.youtuebe.com/fortunecooking). The rest will be up this week. With the change of seasons, comes a change of ingredients in season. I will continue to try to work with the freshest ingredients and show you many ways to utilize those foods that are in season!
Had the handymen out today to measure and prep to make my new raised bed vegetable garden. I am so excited to get growing! So far I’m thinking herbs, tomatoes, peppers, carrots, green beans, snap peas and cucumbers. I will be sure to document my progress and utilize in some summer recipes and videos!
Have a good weekend,
