NBC Television “Daytime Alabama: Alison Lewis, Brooke Smith and Kale-Lentil Soup

012110 014

So many ask people ask me about my television work. I love to do food television, and have been fortunate enough to do so many shows in the past year. I thought I would show a glimpse of us in action from yesterdays tapings for NBC 13 “Daytime Alabama” in Birmingham, Alabama. On one of the shows I featured “kale”. Everyone loved the recipes and was so excited to learn about kale and ways to use it in quick and healthy recipes. I made an awesome Kale-Lentil Soup filled with kale, lentils, garbanzo beans , andouille sausage and farro. I also made a Kale Saute with dried cranberries, walnuts and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar that I developed for Clean Eating Magazine. It was so much fun, and I thank Brooke Smith, Wes, Nicole and Alatia for all their great work and so much fun!

Classic Hanukkah Favorite-Easy Potato Latkes


My dad has been making Potato Latkes on Hanukkah since I can remember. Now, we always celebrate with my family at my sister, Natalie’s house. My brother-in-law, Eric and my dad make the latkes together. It’s always a fun night, especially for the kids. We are celebrating it this weekend for the last night of Hanukkah. We tried this recipe at home last night, and it came out great! I was testing Cashew Chicken for Clean Eating magazine, and we served it with these Potato Latkes, kinda funny how things work at my house–the life of a Recipe Developer.
