tip of the day


Oregano is the "pizza herb" of southern Italy that we're all familiar with.  But, you probably didn't know how good it is for you! Oregano is high in antioxidants and in {the overlooked} vitamin K.  It is also a great source for iron, magnesium, and fiber. It can even be used to cure stomach and respiratory ailments, and will make your sore throat feel better.  So don't be dainty! 

the recipe: 
cooked carrots

Now, I know there are no measurements for this recipe, and that's because the spices are "to taste" and the rest is determined by what's in my fridge or how many people I'm feeding.  

sliced carrots
diced onion
salt and pepper

Fill the bottom of a large skillet with about 1/2 inch of water, and bring to a boil.  Add carrots, onion, oregano, and salt & pepper.  Cover and simmer until carrots are tender.
