    Pumpkin is an excellent source of vitamin A, beta-carotene and potassium.  Beta-carotene, which can help reduce cancer risk, is thought to provide anti-aging benefits.  Studies also suggest that chemical compounds in pumpkin can regenerate damaged pancreatic cells, possibly increasing insulin production and helping diabetics.  So, this season after you’ve carved the face on your favorite pumpkin, opt out of throwing away the inside and make one of these recycled treats.  Your body and skin will thank you!

    With a family of 6, I rarely have leftover fruit, but today I magically found a lonely ripe mango sitting on my counter.  Instead of throwing it in a smoothie (my most favorite thing to do), I decided to experiment with its sweet flavor and create a cucumber mint salad.  The mint creates a refreshing smack that you typically wouldn’t associate with mango, but the cucumber, lime and strawberry pull it together perfectly! 

    INGREDIENTS
    1 very large cucumber
    1 cup fresh strawberries
    1 ripe mango
    ½ lime ... Read More

    We at Dinner Matters hope you had a fun and flavorful Thanksgiving! It's always hard during the holidays to watch everything you eat, and it's especially hard on Thanksgiving Day.

    When you hear Carolina, you think barbeque, right? 

    Well, here at Dinner Matters, when we hear Carolina we think…barbeque too! We love a good pig pickin’, slow cooked flavors, and meat falling off the bone. But, we also love the lighter side of barbeque, something packed with flavor, and easy to do.

    Our Mesquite Grilled Salmon fits the bill. Four simple ingredients and five easy steps. We like to pair this with brown rice and French green beans to keep it healthy all the way through!

    This week’s game takes us to Pittsburgh – and who can’t help but think about a delicious Primanti Brothers Sandwich! For those who have not had the scrumptious pleasure – imagine your favorite deli sandwich, topped with fries and coleslaw. The complete deal – but maybe just a little filling…

    Our healthy twist on this favorite is a flank steak in a simple, yet flavorful Asian-style marinade, paired with spicy sweet coleslaw. While here at Dinner Matters, we don’t normally make this into a sandwich – we think that the thinly sliced steak, on a soft ... Read More

    While the beginning of Fall has added a touch of chill to the air, we've been lucky to have a few warmer days to remind us of those last lingering days of late summer when we fired up the grill, enjoyed good food and spent time with great friends. 

    This week, we're keeping it going with our Grilled NY Strip Fiorentina - Aromatic rosemary, sweet balsamic and a little punch of garlic bring a simple grilled steak to new heights. 

    The Fiorentina sauce is easy to prepare ahead of gameday. All you'll need to do is grill your ... Read More
