Tip of the Week: Double up for tomorrow



If you're cooking dinner tonight, save yourself time by doubling the batch. If you plan on grilling four chicken breasts, grill eight and save the four extra for tomorrow's dinner. You can make chicken salad or cut up the breasts and toss it in pasta and marinara sauce. If you're roasting veggies, double the batch and save half for tomorrow night's salad, pizza or tacos.

The Dish On …



"Dearie: The Remarkable Life of Julia Child" by Bob Spitz



A fearless, ambitious, supremely confident woman, Julia Child’s story is more than the tale of a talented woman and her sumptuous craft.  It is also a saga of America’s coming of age and growing sophistication, from the Depression Era to the turbulent '60s and the excesses of the '80s to the greening of the American kitchen. Julia finally gets the biography she richly deserves. An in-depth, intimate narrative, full of fresh information and insights, this book is an entertaining, all-out adventure story of one of our most fascinating and beloved figures.
