Cooking with the Moms
Do you spend every waking moment taking care of everyone...but yourself? Are you feeling stressed out? Does your back ache? Do you wish you could carve out even a few precious minutes for yourself each day? To bust through your stress and boost your health, we're joined this week by fitness expert, Joe Sweeney, author of I Know I Should Exercise...But and lifestyle guru at Rancho La Puerta spa in Tecate, Mexico. In addition to Joe's tips – breathing deeply 10 minutes a day, scheduling exercise like you'd schedule a dentist's appointment, starting small, making exercise fun – we also share a mom-friendly recipe for Squash-Apple Soup with Thai Red Curry and Mexican Red Rice.

When you were a kid, was Sunday Dinner part of your family's weekly mealtime routine? For this week's Cooking with the Moms, we reminisce about Sunday Dinner with two special guests: Janice's mom, Carol, and Liz's mother-in-law, Joy. We share tips for bringing families back to the dinner table – especially on Sundays, and we dish about fun ways to make mealtime more enjoyable. We also serve up two hearty recipes. The first is for Thyme Roasted Chicken and the second for Yorkshire Pudding, a British side dish similar to popovers.

On today's show, we take you on an amazing food and fitness adventure to Rancho La Puerta, a destination spa in Tecate, Mexico. The reason we're excited to talk about "The Ranch" is because we recently returned from a one-week visit where we gave a lecture on the Secret to Healthy Meal Makeovers and led a hands-on cooking class at the Ranch's beautiful La Cocina Que Canta (The Kitchen that Sings). We enjoyed meals of locally-grown, organic produce, fitness classes, early-morning hikes and so much more. One of the recipes we created for our cooking class was Grilled Salmon with Avocado Cilantro Sauce. Enjoy!
