Cooking Not Take Out

With money tight for everyone, more and more of us are cooking at home. If you’re like me, you quickly have run out of recipes (because you used to eat out all of the time!?!?). Thanks to my friend, Kim, I have discovered NoTakeOut.com.

NoTakeOut.com provides a daily recipe every day Monday – Friday and you can subscribe to the newsletter so the recipes come right to your mailbox. The recipes feed a family of four and NoTakeOut.com gives you a shopping list, a pantry list, tools you’ll need and wine and dessert suggestions! Since Chicago has become Seattle as far as weather is concerned, today’s recipe is for a new fangled (in a good way) chicken soup. The recipes are quick and easy and the instructions are very specific so anyone (and you know who you are) can cook!

Past recipes are listed on the site as well as interesting pieces about food and the food industry. I love that NoTakeOut.com embraces meatless Mondays (now if only Jeff would. too!). Did you know that at the international summit on global warming, United Nations emissaries cited meat production as a primary source of greenhouse gas? Dr. Rajendra Pachauri, chair of the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change called eating less meat “one of the most important personal choices we can make to address climate change.” And, it’s good for you, too! By skipping meat one day per week, the average American can lower his/her saturated fat intake by 15%! To learn more about Meatless Monday and to find more meatless recipes, just click here.

Thanks for reading Bright-Yellow and keep the suggestions coming!
