Summer Peaches Are Here

By Elana Horwich

June 19, 2013 | 9:00 am

I always figured peaches were a super sugary fruit as they are so darn good. But it is not so. Peaches:

  • are often less than 100 calories, making them a guilt-free snack.
  • have a low glycemic load, meaning this fruit has only a subtle impact on your blood sugar.
  • contain small amounts of beta-cryptoxanthin which has anti-cancer and anti-aging properties.

When given peaches, make peach cobbler. Here's my Famous Guiltless Cobbler recipe.

    This salad is named after world class chef Jeff Thickman of Florence, Italy. He is a family friend and was in town this week. I invited him, his partner Igor and friend Lissy down to Santa Monica and was planning on treating them to Shutter’s for lunch and a view. Last minute they... read on

  • Popcorn Cauliflower [Recipe]

    June 10, 2013 | 9:00 am

    There’s not much to spiel about here except that when I was researching online to find out what temperature other cooks used to roast cauliflower, to my dismay I found that most put too much “stuff” in their recipes. Cauliflower already has a unique flavor and, when roasted, the... read on

    Chances are if you are serving couscous, you are making something else that has onions in it. Well, save those onion peels...the outer layer and the skins. They have great flavor. Scrounge up some celery, a carrot, something green like a bay leaf or a piece of parsley and you'll... read on

    May 27, 2013 | 8:59 am

    I became an expert at making this dish in my first years in Rome when my pocketbook was nearly always empty (no complaints on my side, I was a bartender thousands of miles away from the traditional life everybody expected of me and couldn’t have been happier) and when my curiosity... read on
