Cooking with the Moms
When we think of creamed spinach, our minds wander back to the 1950s and 60s. We're not sure why, but creamed spinach has a certain, shall we say, retro feel about it. It's also loaded - and we mean loaded - with more saturated fat and calories than a nutrient-rich vegetable like spinach deserves! One of our Facebook fans just asked us to give creamed spinach a healthy makeover, so we got cooking and came up with a recipe that's sure to get your taste buds asking for seconds and thirds! Our Crazy-Good Cream-less Creamed Spinach is perfect for the holidays...or any time of the year, and it has a fraction of the bad-for-you fat found in traditional creamed spinach. We share this healthy new side dish recipe on this week's show and also dish about our holiday food adventures.

On December 3rd, Liz's son, Simon became a Bar Mitzvah. Liz is so proud; she's still kvelling! On this week's show, we chat about the service and the evening party, marvel over the gigantic soccer cleat-shaped cake that was created by Wilson Farm, share a Recipe for Success that Liz whipped up just for Simon, and also share a Hanukkah recipe for Sweet Potato and Ginger Latkes. Tune in for a lesson on Yiddish and all the other fun news from the Bar Mitzvah day.

Every year around this time, Janice attends her annual neighborhood cookie swap. Last year, she brought our Ginger Drizzle Cookies from No Whine with Dinner. The year before, it was Our Favorite Chocolate Cookie from The Moms' Guide to Meal Makeovers. Last night as a dozen friends gathered to exchange cookies and gossip, Janice treated her fellow cookie swappers to something new: our latest makeover for sticky, gooey, over-the-top decadent Seven Layer Bars. On this week's show, we bake up a batch of Lightened-Up Seven Layer Bars and serve up a taste of Janice's sweeter-than-ever swap.
