I’m doing well with my resolution to make a different Real Simple recipe every week. Of course, it’s only January, so I’m hoping I can keep it up. My latest effort was absolutely delicious—Spicy Grits With Chorizo, Leeks, and Corn.
There’s been a lot of buzz lately about kale and how good it is for you. It’s chock full of vitamin C, beta-carotene, calcium, and antioxidants. (It’s on our list of the 30 Healthiest Foods after all.) But it seems to be one of those foods that people either love or hate. Luckily, there are a couple of easy (and tasty) ways to add it to your diet.
If you always find yourself panicking at the end of the day about what you’re going to throw together for dinner that night, have no fear—we’re here to help you out. We recently launched a handy little app for iPad, iPhone, and Android, called No Time to Cook?, that has hundreds of quick and easy (nothing takes longer than 40 minutes) recipes for weeknight meals. Find dinner ideas—including everything from meatballs to stir-fries to pasta—by main ingredient, total time, or special considerations like low-calorie, family-friendly, and one-pot (don’t worry, vegetarians, there are recipes for you, too!).
Another goal that came up a couple of times when we asked what you wanted help with in 2011 was getting your recipes organized. While this is more of an on-going task instead of a 10-minute task, the payoff—not having to hunt for that mouth-watering chicken soup recipe—is worth it.
