Cooking with the Moms
On today's show, we're adding a healthy, kid-friendly twist to comfort food. Comfort food can be notoriously high in fat, calories and sodium and somewhat lacking in the good nutrition department. The result: All those stick-to-your-ribs bites end up sticking to your waistline. Our two recipes – Chicken & Broccoli Casserole with Crunchy Almond Topping and Slow Cooked Barbecue Beef are easy to make and are guaranteed to appeal to your entire family.

Seafood isn't exactly the number-one food kids clamor for, so on today's show we share tips for getting your entire family hooked for life! Seafood – salmon, shrimp, tilapia, catfish – is a great source of high-quality protein, rich in heart-healthy omega-3 fats and contains nutrients that promote good health. Our two recipes, Almond-Crusted Tilapia and Shells with Shrimp & Edamame are sure to appeal to your kids, even if they're picky!

On this week's show, we let our hair down with two dessert recipes that feature one of our favorite foods: chocolate! Chocolate is one of those foods that says, "I love you." (It's too bad Brussels sprouts and broccoli don't elicit that same warm & fuzzy feeling). To show all the special people in your life how much you love them, try our Chocolaty Coconut Party Torte and our Chocolate-Dipped Strawberries – two recipes with some surprising and healthy ingredients.

In today's show, we turn the dinner hour into the dinner minutes. Recently, we discovered the amazing ease, health benefits, and convenience of cooking in a pressure cooker (not the one your grandmother used but the modern-day style that won’t explode!). To help busy families get nutritious meals on the table quickly, we have two recipes: Butternut Squash Risotto, bursting with great flavor and immune-boosting vitamin A, and Shane's Fabulous Lentil Soup, a kid-friendly recipe we got from pressure cooker guru, Jill Nussinow (AKA The Veggie Queen).
