WHAT WE'RE EATING: Winter Breakfast 2012

They say the best way to start a day is breakfast and around here, we agree. But, like any of you busy bees out there, sometimes we just don't have time to slow down for a hearty meal. So this What We're Eating is a roundup of the foods and dishes we'd eat if we had more leisurely mornings where we can savor our time and every bite. My choice works for a simple snack too, but as for Cristina's favorite frittata? Perhaps it's best left for a relaxed Sunday.

What's your favorite morning meal?

WHAT WE'RE EATING New Year's Eve 2011

If you're taking on the task of throwing a New Year's Eve fete this year, we gathered up some inspiration for you in shades of green. We thought, why not start 2012 off a little bit healthy after this past month of eating sweets and stuffing cookies in our (*ahem), your faces? Plus, these recipes work well into spring as they are verdant and fresh. Happy eating and cheers to you!

In the world of beauty, December is joyful, spirited and inevitably, our busiest time of the year. Come the weekend, we all look forward to a chance to wind down, take a deep breath and forget for a moment the mile-high stacks of products and the late evenings working hard. For some of us it's yoga to relax, for others it's spending a Saturday reading, but for the rest of us. . .especially in this chilled air, it's a holiday sip that we look forward to. Hey, a Hot Toddy with fresh lemon has been known to ward off a cold.

So we share with you our favorite seasonal concoctions.

WHAT WE'RE EATING Thanksgiving 2011

Being the foodies that we are, we've decided to throw together a little potluck at the office the day before Thanksgiving. Everyone is bringing in their favorite dish and the verdict? It's going to be a "side show" filled with plenty of carbohydrates and a dash of sugar. We recommend a week of dedicated exercise after a party like this. 

What about you? Does your work do anything in honor of giving thanks?

Every now and then, we'll offer you a roundup of yummy recipes that use our favorite ingredients of the season. This time, it's a pumpkin here, a squash there, and some apples and cranberries for a bit of sweetness. As we may have mentioned, here at JMC we sit around the big wooden lunch table every day and the topic of conversation that comes up often? Food. I guess what parts of brains aren't dedicated to cosmetics and products are saved for all things edible.

So enjoy! And keep us posted if you happen to whip up these amazing dishes.
