Cooking with the Moms
Back in the late 1980's, a scientific study found that eating oat bran lowered blood cholesterol levels. What followed was a nationwide oat bran craze, and new food products hit the market including silly things like potato chips and even beer made with oat bran. Fast forward to 2012, and oats are still hot stuff! From conversations with our Facebook fans, it's clear consumers are still in love with oats and oatmeal, so we decided to devote this week's show to them. For expert advice on all things oats--their nutritional value, how to cook with them, what to top them with--we turned to fellow dietitian, oatmeal aficionado, and mom-to-be, Kath from the blog, Kath Eats Real Food. We also have two oatmeal recipes: Overnight Oatmeal and Whipped Banana Oatmeal.

Julie child would have turned 100 today. To honor her culinary legacy, we cooked up her recipe for Boeuf Bourguignon (a three-day affair!) This luscious beef dish is being simmered all over the blogosphere today as part of the JC100, a weekly blogger cooking challenge. We're thrilled to be part of it...and we're also thrilled to be sharing so much more with you today on our podcast including highlights from our Boeuf Bourguignon cooking adventure, our favorite Julia Child memories (and some of yours), an interview with Jessie Hartland, author of Bon Appetit: The Delicious Life of Julia Child, and a giveaway of the book.

We've cooked up a lot of amazing makeovers over the years, but this one for Key Lime Pie really takes the cake (or shall we say, pie)! Key Lime Pie is often made with ingredients like sweetened condensed milk in the filling and lots of butter in the crust. We reinvented -- and healthified -- both with our latest recipe for California Avocado Yogurt Key Lime Pie. On this week's podcast, we dish about summer entertaining, our Key Lime Pie makeover, our recipe for Avocado and Chicken Summer Sandwich, and the many reasons we love avocados...and summer.
