'A family meal nourishes the body and soul, unites a family and defines love.'
My fondest childhood memories are of sitting around the dinner table with family and friends and consuming not only the beautiful food my mother prepared but the day's events, stories and laughter. For many families mealtimes were once the only gathering of the family, but this time-honoured tradition is sadly diminishing: the television remains on, the phone rings and everyone eats at different times suited to their own individual pursuits.
Please take some time to prepare some of the following meals for your family. They are wholesome, easy to prepare and great to share with your family. You can find more great recipes like these in my cookbook.

Green Chocolate Smoothie
Smoothie history isn't something you often think about when you contemplate drinking a delicious smoothie, but did you ever stop and wonder, where did smoothies come from? Who started making these great tasting drinks?
What is the smoothie history?
Smoothies are generally accepted to be a cold, blended drink with a thick consistency. They can be healthy, made from fruit and vegetables or dessert like beverages made with chocolate and ice-cream.
Smoothies differ from juices in that smoothies are made from whole ingredients blended together, and contain not only fruits, but other ingredients such as yogurt, ice, honey and milk.Read the Recipe
