Take Five Italian Minutes (Cinque Minuti) For Five Favorites

It’s the fifth month of the year already?! Spring is spreading across the nation, grass growing, and flowers peeking out from winter. And, as happens every month, another five favorites to share. A few videos, recipes, entertainment, and healthful tips make up this month’s featured favs.  


Beginner meatloaf. Even if you don’t enjoy cooking, this recipe might encourage you to try making an easy meatloaf. Whether you are cooking for yourself, a family, or aspire to be the next Ina Garten, everybody has to start somewhere. This favorite household dish is an easy way to test out your culinary abilities. 


10 Simple Food Swaps to Save Calories. I’m always looking for a way to improve ingredients in recipes that lean towards the healthy side. God knows I cook enough with less than healthy ingredients, so a little balance from time to time is good, and saving calories is a bonus. Check these out – you may find these swaps easier than you think to incorporate into your recipes.


100 Best Movies on Netflix. Netflix is the best excuse for adopting a couch potato attitude. With some restraint (ruling out series binge watching) it can be a good source of entertainment. The link leads to 100 Netflix movie choices — some old, some new, all with a good overview description to whet your appetite. This list covers just about every topic, for any style of movie-lover. Scroll through to find a few to add to your viewing pleasure.


Seasonal Eating. CUESA (Center for Urban Education about Sustainable Agriculture) is dedicated to cultivating a sustainable food system through the operation of farmers markets and educational programs. Their website has a lot of great information about food and food programs. Also some very interesting recipes such as  Apple-Fennel Pizza, Lavender-Cured Confit Duck, and Golden Beet Salad with Vanilla Mandarin Dressing and Smoked Trout. If nothing else, it’s an interesting site to explore. Here are a few links to get you started:
