These sweet potatoes are sliced and roasted in the oven, then drizzles with balsamic and topped with parmesan cheese and fresh herbs. They can be enjoyed as a side dish for eight, or as a meatless main for four people.  These would be beautiful on your Thanksgiving table if you would like to serve this as a side.

And speaking of Thanksgiving, I know the holidays can be a stressful time. Between traveling, extra calories being consumed and stress of having to take care of so many people, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed.  That’s why it’s so important to take care of yourself during this time of year. In addition to making healthy and delicious food, hit the gym to work out any stress. It’s a guaranteed way to feel great, quickly.

Simple to Make Healthy Dog Treats


10746_518595488182074_2097744876_nI’m sure many of you have furry friends … I found this recipe floating around facebook and thought you might want to try making these simple doggy biscuits.
Stop giving your dog treats from China that is killing our dogs! Here is a Pumpkin Recipe that is healthy for them –
Pumpkin Dog Biscuits

* Brown rice flour gives the biscuits crunch and promotes better dog digestion. Many dogs have touchy stomachs or allergies, and do not, like many people I know, tolerate wheat.

2 eggs
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
2 tablespoons dry milk
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
2 1/2 cups brown rice flour *
1 teaspoon dried parsley (optional)
Preheat oven to 350.

In large bowl, whisk together eggs and pumpkin to smooth. Stir in dry milk, sea salt, and dried parsley (if using, optional). Add brown rice flour gradually, combining with spatula or hands to form a stiff, dry dough. Turn out onto lightly floured surface (can use the brown rice flour) and if dough is still rough, briefly knead and press to combine.

Roll dough between 1/4 – 1/2″ – depending on your dog’s chew preferences, – and use biscuit or other shape cutter to punch shapes, gathering and re-rolling scraps as you go. Place shapes on cookie sheet, no greasing or paper necessary. If desired, press fork pattern on biscuits before baking, a quick up-and-down movement with fork, lightly pressing down halfway through dough. Bake 20 minutes. Remove from oven and carefully turn biscuits over, then bake additional 20 minutes. Allow to cool completely on rack before feeding to dog.

Makes up to 75 small (1″) biscuits or 50 medium biscuits

Other ingredients: 12 teaspoons of Nutella, 1 egg yolk, 1 tablespoon milk. It is very easy to make and it will only take you 30 minutes.Nutella-Croissant-1

Steps: prepare the yeast, mix the yeast, flour, milk, cover and let stand 15 minutes.

Meanwhile prepare the dough. In a bowl, mix the flour with the salt and sugar. Add butter, egg and mix until you obtain a firm, smooth dough. Knead a dozen minutes. Then add the yeast and continue to knead for 5 minutes. Put the dough in a clean bowl, cover and let it rise until it doubles its volume. Roll out the dough to a thickness of 5 mm so to obtain a circle.

Using a cutting wheel, cut 12 triangles and put a teaspoon of nutella on the base of each triangle . Start to roll the dough base until the end. Then transfer them to a plate covered with baking paper. Allow them time to double their volume again.

During that, mix the egg yolk with the tablespoon of milk and brush the surface of your croissant with the egg-milk mixture. Cook them in a preheated oven at 180 degrees for 20 minutes. Enjoy!
