Does all this healthy food living mean I can no longer be a gourmet food gal? No way! I’m simply learning to prepare foods differently, using alternative ingredients, to make the final dish a bit healthier. Though occasional, there will still be the traditional favorites still prepared for my family and friends. No kitchen of mine will go without the lovely smell of braised short ribs on top of a dollop of rustic mashed potatoes, shrimp & cheese grits, and Spanish Paella. But tonight we’ll be cooking braised chicken with creamy leeks.
