Thought of the Week

Put up in a place where it's easy to see
The cryptic admonishment "TTT."
When you feel how depressingly slowly you climb,
It's well to remember that Thing Take Time.

- Piet Hein

How are those New Years Resolutions coming? I'd like to add one to them for you, if you don't mind: Be patient.

Column Reprint: Tuna

I have to make what is, for a food writer, an embarrassing confession: my favorite fish, far and away, is canned tuna.

Yep, canned tuna, stuff of school lunchroom sandwiches and casseroles made with goopy canned mushroom soup. Love the stuff. Love, love, love the stuff. And I'm not alone. Tuna is the third most commonly purchased foodstuff in the country, after sugar and coffee. Canned tuna is served in more than ninety percent of American households, and accounts for fully twenty percent of all fish and seafood consumed in the US. That's a lot of tuna!

Cooking Low Carb: Flax Pancakes

I came up with these pancakes one lazy Sunday morning when pancakes and bacon just seemed like the thing. They worked out perfectly the very first time; my husband rated them a perfect 10. Four grams of non-fiber carb per pancake may seem a little high, but look at that protein count - one pancake has as much protein as three eggs! Between that, the fiber, and the healthy fats, these suckers will fill you up, and keep you full for hours and hours.
