Fresh, Homegrown Herbs Will Perk up Your Food

Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme. You don't have to traipse all the way to Scarborough Fair with Simon and Garfunkel to get your own fresh herbs. They're super easy to grow yourself! In this video I show you how my purple cabbages, used to decorate my window boxes, ended up being in some very tasty salads. While you're watching this video about my herb gardens, I'm going to be bugging those computer nerds to hurry up and invent “e-smell" so someday you can sit back and take in the delicious aroma coming from my garden and kitchen. Until then...let's get planting!

I was lucky enough to visit Italy for a week. One thing I noticed was every little restaurant had an herb garden right outside. We stayed at a villa. They had a huge garden and when they needed something they just stepped outside and picked it. Oh, my goodness. "Magnifico" flavors just burst out. Take 25 seconds to watch this video my husband shot.

Absolutely Delicious BBQ Chicken

Posted by Pam Young

Apr 24, 2017 5:00:00 AM

 

 

Do you like the taste of marinated meats? Since I’ve been living in the low-carb world, I’ve been marinating a lot. My low-carb physician is the one who suggested it. As the years have passed, I came up with the idea of using the pickle juice from my favorite pickles. If I like the pickle, why not put that flavor into chicken, pork or fish?

 

So I always save my pickle juices and use them on the meat of the day. Since I love Bubbies Dill Pickles, I love the brine and it’s especially delicious for chicken. This cooking video will show you exactly what I do.

In chapter twelve of "The Joy of Being Disorganized" it reminds its readers to “quiet your adult mind long enough to hear your inner child's voice.” Having a clean, cozy, peaceful home includes letting that fun-loving child in you remember what you love to eat! In this cooking video, you'll get a wonderful recipe for bone broth and a tasty chicken salad made from what was left on the bones after making the broth.

Every single tasty morsel of meat is simmered along with some yummy vegetables seasoned just right.

When the voice of your inner child starts on a whiny, crave, it just means you need protein. Having bone broth and chicken salad on hand will stop the craving within 20 seconds and your inner child's voice will stop its belligerent rant.

Best Deviled Eggs Recipe

Have you ever noticed, if you take a plate of deviled eggs to a potluck, they disappear fast? They are such a famous treat and this recipe is really delicious! I don't use Penzey spices anymore and have switched to Savory Spice Shop. They have a better Italian Seasoning! I showed this cooking video in 2015 and I wasn't about to re-shoot it because I no longer use Penzey.

Yummy Artichokes with a Little OOPS Thrown in!

Posted by Pam Young

Mar 31, 2017 4:00:00 AM

 

Hey, come and join me as I play in the kitchen with my low-carb friend the artichoke. Not friends with Arti yet? You will be! Did you know that artichokes have more antioxidants than any other vegetable, are high in fiber and even are good for the liver? Some people actually use artichokes for a hangover remedy, but of course I hope you don't have to enjoy them for that reason! The ancient Greeks and Romans even considered artichokes a delicacy and an aphrodisiac. Who are we to argue with Aristotle? We'll use a few sharp tools and cut our way around the bright green leaves snipping off the pokey ends as we watch out for flying tips. This recipe is gonna be a favorite soon!

So come on into my kitchen and watch me cook them.

Absolutely Delicious, Low Carb, Burritos

Posted by Pam Young

Aug 26, 2016 3:45:57 PM

If you love Mexican food, but instantly think about all the carbs in most of it, you can un-carb any high carb dish, with minor replacements. 

Watch this video from my kitchen as I prepare burritos that'll take you right over the border in a low-carb way.

 

 

 

 

Olah! Oh, by the way, if you are serious about living a low carb lifestyle, I recommend Gary Taubes' book "Why We Get Fat and What We Can do About it." It was this science writer for the New York Times that completely change my husband Terry's and my life. Subsequently I took two years to write The Mouth Trap: the butt stops here! Documenting my switch to a happy, healthy way to eat. Just click on the cover to learn more.

Super easy, fresh, delicious, healthy, and inexpensive salad dressing

Posted by Pam Young

Aug 12, 2016 6:30:00 AM

Why buy bottled salad dressings when it's so simple to make them in your own kitchen.

It takes more time to choose a bottle and the store and pay for it, as it does to make it. See for yourself in this video from my kitchen.
