Celebrate the Culinary Arts in our Weekend Gourmet Blog Carnival!

Share your Fave Home Cooking Recipes with Weekend Gourmet Blog Carnival!

Nothing will beat our health care crisis faster than getting into the kitchen and working with whole foods, fresh from the farm. Preparing healthy meals can be done in advance, and the frugal use of leftovers can insure you avoid the take-out food and fast food drive thru window.

I was remarking to my husband, just yesterday, how wonderful it is that I no longer suffer from severe knee pain. Six years ago, I was crippled with pain. Today, I live a pain free life. My husband also, went from high blood pressure and pre-diabetes, to radiant health and neither of those issues.

And, the only price we paid was to be a little more careful about what we ate!

The saddest conversation I ever had was with a woman who really wanted to lose weight, but when I told her what was required, she woefully admitted she was not willing to cook for herself. If only she had realized that it doesn’t have to be laborious or tedious. The fact is, with the advent of the personal chef industry, there is no excuse for not adding home cooked meals to your diet. If you are unwilling to do it, hire it done!

Most Mondays on this blog, we offer this Weekend Gourmet blog carnival, where real food bloggers show you how it’s done. Check our past Weekend Gourmet carnivals for ideas and recipes that you (or your personal chef) can try in your home!

Bloggers, please share your fresh food recipes with our readers! And, don’t forget to link back to this post from your blog!

Readers, you can join in the fun by sharing recipe links in the comments, below. And, if you try a recipe, please come back and give us a review. That will encourage more people to try these Weekend Gourmet recipes!
