Cooking with the Moms
If you're an avid cook or baker, you've probably come across a recipe (or two or three) that calls for egg whites, or egg yolks, but not both. This means you'll be challenged with figuring out how to best store the liquid-y leftovers so they don't go to waste. On this week's show, we crack the code on the best way to store leftover whites and yolks, how to use them in various recipes, dispel the myth that egg yolks are unhealthy, and we serve up a new recipe for Raspberry Creme Brulee without even a single drop of cream!

Spring has arrived early here in New England, but that hasn't stopped us from savoring the memories from our winter vacations last month. Janice traveled to Cabo San Lucas in Mexico where she enjoyed lots of sunshine and Liz and her family hit the slopes of Park City. We chat about food and fitness adventures on this week's podcast. We're also joined by Patricia, a mom of two girls from Rhode Island, an avid podcast listener, and a wonderful Meal Makeover Mom fan who popped in to say hi and cook two recipes with us: Salmon BLTs with Avocado (inspired by one of Liz's Park City meals) and Baked Parsnip Fries with Rosemary from the March issue of Bon Appetit magazine.

March is National Nutrition Month, so join us as we celebrate this year's theme to Get Your Plate in Shape. On this week's show, we have lots of tips for fine-tuning the foods you place on your family's breakfast, lunch, and dinner plate ... and two new recipes, courtesy of our friends with Easy Baked Chicken --- a healthy alternative to fried chicken --- and Chewy Blueberry Oatmeal Cookies, which are made with heart-healthy canola oil versus gobs and gobs of butter.

One of the best things about winter is all the citrus fruit available at the market. As long as there's still a nip in the air, we'll keep grabbing for oranges, grapefruit, lemons, limes, Clementines ... and Liz's hands-down new favorite fruit: Cara Cara navel oranges. On this week's show, we section, squeeze, zest, and slice into the season's best citrus with the help of fellow registered dietitian, Karen Ansel. In the February issue of Eating Well magazine, Karen contributed to The Power of Citrus with the latest research on the health benefits of citrus and tips for using this super fruit in everyday home cooking. Tune in for Karen's savvy citrus insights and for Eating Well's Leek & Lemon Linguini recipe -- which we topped with grilled shrimp.
