Meatballs: Not just for spaghetti

Meatballs go hand-in-hand with spaghetti, but they also can add a wonderful flavor and texture to soup. Pair them with cheese tortellini and you’ve got an amped-up version of Italian wedding soup.

Build a better brownie

Along with death, taxes and Meryl Streep landing another Oscar nomination, add this to the “life’s certainties” pile: the spontaneous “Omigod” that follows a first bite into a Palm Beach Brownie.

Stress is contagious, but it’s not all bad for larger society

As a tax preparer, Stephen Yu deals with clients who can’t locate records or are panicked because they haven’t filed in years. Unfortunately, Yu picks up on their stress and sometimes takes it home, especially during tax season. He becomes irritable, distracted and can’t sleep.

Chicken Stir-Fry is a weekday winner

A stir-fry is an easy go-to dinner. To stir-fry means to cook foods quickly in a small amount of oil over high heat. The only real work and time is in chopping and slicing the ingredients. The spicy peanut sauce is the highlight of in today’s recipe with its mix of crushed red pepper and gingerroot. Adjust the sauce to your own taste. Serving the stir-fry on whole wheat angel hair pasta is a nutrition boost, providing 4 grams of fiber per serving.

Boneless leg of lamb makes for prep-and-leave-it ease

I push vegetables; I encourage meatless mains as often as possible. But sometimes you just need to splurge. Our family adores lamb. Grilling makes it even better. For a small group, I’ll make lamb chops; for a larger crowd, boneless leg of lamb impresses and proves super easy.
