Cooking with the Moms
This month, we had articles published in two magazines: Kiwi and Everyday with Rachael Ray. For Kiwi, our story on The New Dinnertime Rules featured rules like "No TV or Cell Phones," "One Family, One Dinner" and "Take a 'No Thank You Bite,'" and we made the point that better nutrition can be achieved when families eat together ... happily (something you can more easily achieve with realistic food rules). For Everyday with Rachael Ray, we contributed a recipe for General Tso's Chicken to their Makeover Meal section ... a recipe lower in fat and sodium (and filled with veggies) than the meal you'd find in most Chinese food restaurants. We dish about both articles on this week's show, and we hope you'll tune in!

What do you get when 1,000 foodies converge on NYC? The answer: The annual meeting of the International Association of Culinary Professionals. A mouthful for sure ... which is why the organization is affectionately referred to as the IACP. We recently attended their annual meeting in the Big Apple, and we share the highlights -- the lectures we attended, the celebrity chefs we met, the food we ate, the new friends we made — on this week's podcast. We also serve up a recipe for a Kale Omelet from the gorgeous cookbook by Virginia Willis, Basic to Brilliant Y'All.

It's not every day you get to ride around Boston in a Duck Boat (unless you're a tourist), but last Wednesday during National Whole Grain Sampling Day, we joined our friends at Oldways and the Whole Grains Council to spread the word that oats, wild rice, quinoa, farro, popcorn and other whole grains are a healthy, delicious, and convenient addition to anyone's diet. We serve up a whole lot of info about whole grains on this week's podcast, feature an interview with Cynthia Harriman from the Whole Grains Council, and share a recipe for Over-the-Rainbow Brown Rice.
