Now that the holidays are over, it’s time to get back to regular eating. Some of you may have even started following a New Year’s resolution to eat healthier. It’s a tough resolution to follow, but a good fish recipe is a powerful secret weapon when it comes to battling unhealthy foods!
One of my favorite ways to cook fish is Mediterranean style. These dishes are healthier because they typically don’t use red meats, and olive or canola oil takes the place of butter in the cooking process. Mediterranean dishes also include combinations of fruits, veggies, whole grains and other white meats; very clean cooking.

In case you haven’t been to this store, our Byerly’s in St. Louis Park has a cooking school where we host 10-15 cooking classes each month. Each class strives to teach you something new about food and cooking techniques to make you more comfortable in the kitchen.
I teach many of these classes and have found more and more people interested in baking without gluten. Gluten intolerance and celiac disease are increasingly common and people who are unable to eat gluten really miss those baked goods.

A warming drink is always a cozy comfort on a cold day. Mix up a batch of this mulled cider so it’s ready and warming in the slow cooker and you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy your own party, too.

Looking for a twist on ginger cookies? Milk chocolate chips add another dimension to these chewy spice cookies. They’re rolled in sugar, which makes the outside crisper but can also make the bottoms darken too quickly, so watch them carefully as the end of the baking time nears.

You don’t have to roast these nuts on an open fire—just pop them in that handy oven right in your kitchen. Nuts are great to serve at parties and these jazzed-up nuts are also a great homemade gift. Plus, protein-rich and loaded with vitamins and minerals, studies show that eating nuts regularly might be protective against certain diseases—most notably, heart disease.
