TV Tuesday #40 – How To Naturally Heal Dry Cracked Hands


I know some of you will think this upcoming episode to be a little silly, but what can I say… it works! This hand moisturizing technique does involve a pair of socks, but you’ll just have to trust me.

Like the oil pulling episode we did, you might feel a little weird while you’re doing it, but it works. And after all, isn’t that the point, solutions that work?

This little trick is one we keep coming back to when our hands are a little worse for wear. For those that love to ski, hands gets tend to get chapped from being in the cold and wet weather, than they crack and can even bleed. This strange little trick this works. Do it a few times over a period of a few days and your hands will start to look and feel better and heal naturally.

TV Tuesday #39 – Kitchen Basics: How To Perfectly Braise Meat

A recent issue of Bon Appetit had the headline on the cover “The Cooking School Issue.” I was excited. Maybe there was something fun in there I could share with all of you. Out of 5 techniques they demonstrated, this is by far the most practical.

Braising is a simple 4 step technique that will render perfectly cooked and tender meat every time. Braising relies on heat, time and moisture to break down tough connective tissue in meat, which makes it ideal for tougher cuts of meat. This means you can use cuts of meat that would otherwise be tough or lacking in flavor and turn them into an elegant meal, suitable for the grandest of guests. The best part is, this 4 step technique takes relatively little time for the quality of flavor you get in return. And even if you are a beginner cook, you can still turn out a restaurant quality meal. That’s the part I love the most.

TV Tuesday #38 – Fast and Easy 10 Minute Coconut Spinach Soup

Every one needs a meal that can come together quickly, when the hunger hits. Though salads can come together easily enough, sometimes something hot is in order.

That’s where this 10 minute coconut spinach soup comes in.

The thing about soup is that it can take hours or minutes. Whether you’re putting together a beef and lentil soup, a French onion soup or a vegetable based soup, the cooking times can vary anywhere from 2 hours to 10 minutes. This soup is the latter of the two.

This is for those times when you have that crazy hungry look in your eyes…

TV Tuesday #37 – How To Make Homemade Veggie Stock In 1 Hour

A good bone broth can take somewhere between 12 to 24 hours of simmer time. But sometimes, a quick simple veggie stock that can pull a back up to a bone broth is good to have on hand. If you’re vegan or vegetarian, then it’s essential. An organic store bought vegetable broth will run you about $2.50 a liter. Why not make your own? It takes minutes of hands on time (I’ll even show you how easy it really is) and the rest is just stove top time. Too easy!

This recipe makes 4 liters and with very few inexpensive ingredients you can stock your freezer and save yourself a few bucks while you’re at it. Not to mention, the health properties of homemade are always better than store bought.
