Fried Scallions

I love green onions a.k.a. spring onions or scallions, and although there is a slight difference between each, I use them pretty much interchangeably in my cooking. This week, though I stopped by a roadside stand near Kutztown and found lovely bunches of real-for-real scallions and brought them home.

Pretty, aren't they?

Once I had them, I wasn't quite sure what I was going to do with them. I prefer the more delicate and smaller green onion because I'm not a huge fan of raw onions in any form. I just couldn't pass up those scallions, though and so I plotted their consumption for a couple days.

I decided on a not-so-healthy way to eat them, telling myself that they were fresh and so the dredging of them in breadcrumbs and frying in oil would be canceled out somehow.

Oh well, ignorance is bliss.

I have to say, scallions do not want to be done up in a standard breading; no way, no how. They are slippery little suckers that don't want to hold on to anything you put on them and so, the breading procedure was delicate and difficult at best. I didn't bother with flouring them, I simply went straight to egg wash and dipped the onion bulbs in a lovely panko and Romano breading and fried them in olive oil.

They met their demise in a decidedly delicious end. Perfectly crunchy and nutty outside with the Romano cheese and sweet and slightly crunchy inside. Don't be bothered by the long ends that won't be eaten, they really are just for show and one bite will have the eater forgiving you for that waste anyway. The only thing I would do differently when making them again (oh, because I most certainly will) is that I may actually deep fry them so they are done on all sides a bit more quickly.

    Sunset over the workshop's cupola and weathervane

    There are many people that love the dawning of a new day--the freshness of the morning. I have to say that my favorite time of the day is just as the sun is setting--the twilight of a day. There is a restful peace in the air at that time.

    I particularly like twilight time between the months of April and October. Each month's twilight times have their own special nuance that strikes the strings in my heart with such a pang, I cannot even describe it.

    I could probably devote an entire blog just to each day's twilight sights and observations (I promise I won't though). That's how inspiring this time of day is to me.

    Oreo, the garden kitty, loves to socialize at twilight

    As we draw nearer to the first official day of summer, twilight often brings relief from the heat of the day. Twilight enters on cool calming breezes blown off the waters of the San Francisco Bay. Those breezes are always so delicious to my skin if I sit out in the garden and "just be". And on those cool wafts come the silent wings of dragonflies that swoop and dip in a canopy over the garden as they catch their evening meal on-the-wing. I love sitting under that magical moving canopy.

    "Montezuma" rose

    I know that in the world of film making, twilight is known as "golden hour" because of the amazing light that it casts and how beautiful it looks captured on film. Maybe it's my photographer's eye that has entranced me with the light of the ending day. I don't know.

    What time of day makes your heart flutter and sing inside you?

    Ile de France Goat Cheese

    I'm positive by now that it's no secret that my favorite cheese is goat cheese. A quick search on my blog turns up quite a few mentions of it. So, when I was offered the chance to sample and blog about goat cheese, you can bet I was thrilled. Ile de France happens to be the goat cheese I buy most often and the lovely package I received reinforced that for me.

    While I've used goat cheese in many recipes, from pizzas to tarts, my very favorite way to enjoy is is with a crusty and warm loaf of French bread, a bowl of tapenade and some good olive oil. I prefer my cheese rolled in herbs or pepper and this time I used freshly cracked garlic pepper to coat the bouchette of cheese in. It was, as always, perfection.

    The Ile de France website has all you need to know about this wonderfully tangy and creamy cheese - from recipes to pairings to history. Go and have a look and I'll sit back and enjoy my cheese.

    Lest anyone think I've not been blogging due to lack of inspiration, I present Arancini to thwart those thoughts. I'm full of inspiration, creating like mad lately, but with very few opportunities to photograph and write. I also had a couple nights of 'no cooking' with meals provided by Omaha Steaks from Martin's Aunt Joan - we even had dessert with them - lovely little caramel apple tarts that were perfect with vanilla ice cream.

    This recipe for Arancini is my submission to this month's Royal Foodie Joust. Last month's winner, Núria of Spanish Recipes, offered up tomato, bacon and rice as the three ingredients for this month's Joust. My first thought was rice and beans, but let's face it, that's not exactly a winning entry in such a tough competition unless it's presented in a truly fabulous way - which I don't seem to be very adept at. My second thought was rice balls, but not onigiri, which are wonderful in their own right, but not what I was looking for. I had thought on something more Hispanic in flavor, but Arancini seemed to fill the bill for me.

    Normally Arancini is made with leftover risotto, but as my arborio rice had gone missing since the move and I didn't have the energy to head to the store for that single ingredient, I made these with regular long-grain leftover rice. They were just as delicious as the risotto kind and the kids are asking me to make them again very soon.

    Makes 8

    4 cups leftover cooked rice OR leftover risotto
    1/2 cup Parmesan cheese (if you use rice or if the risotto didn't have any added already)
    1 teaspoon Kosher salt
    2 large eggs
    1/2 cup cooked and crumbled bacon
    8 - 1" cubes mozzarella cheese
    2 Tablespoons water
    1 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
    1 cup all-purposed flour
    2 cups thick Marinara sauce

    Combine rice, 1 egg, Parmesan, salt and crumbled bacon together until well blended.
    Form into 8 evenly sized balls. Flatten each slightly and add a cube of cheese to the center of each ball, making sure to wrap the cheese completely within the rice.
    Bread each rice ball by dipping in flour, egg wash (the other egg and water mixed well) and then breadcrumbs until well coated. Fry each in deep hot oil until golden brown. Drain well on paper toweling and serve with warm Marinara sauce.

    **The consistency of these should be like dough - they should hold their shape easily. If they don't stay together well, try adding another egg to the mixture.

    Feel Good and Be Well

    Senior couple on cycle rideCan it be that simple? Feel good and be well? Maybe. There are a few people out there that strongly believe that positive emotional and mental well-being is the secret to living a long, healthy life.

    Emmanuel Lopez, a.k.a. Motivatorman, a good friend of mine and eternal optimist who uses movies to motivate, wrote an intriguing post last week, “Who Wants to Live Forever? - Highlander“. He suggests that healthy living has more to do with a positive mindset and attitude, and creating positive, emotional energy than diet and exercise.

    Motivatorman cites several news stories covering long life and healthy living. He points out that a positive attitude seems to be a common denominator among the healthy, abnormally aged elderly found in the world’s Blue Zones.

    And from a Japan Times’ article, Emmanuel references 97-year-old author and physician, Shigeaki Hinohara’s first healthy living tip, “Energy comes from feeling good, not from eating well or sleeping a lot.”

    Although Emmanuel focuses on the importance of a positive mindset to living healthy and long, he makes sure to end his post with:

    So whether or not you want to live forever why not recognize the benefits of adapting a more conscious lifestyle. Be more aware of your lifestyle choices in the areas of diet, mindset attitudes and relationships. They all lead to a youthful and energized state of mind.

    So what do you think, Readers? Is feeling good the tipping point for total health and wellness?

    What do you think will happen if we simply focus on developing a positive attitude until it becomes habit?

    S club party is one of s club's big hits ever and you know there ant no party like an s club party.

    I am single, in my 50’s, what is the best advice to find a date?

    midagemanDating is not restricted to any particular age group. Anyone can go for a date. If you are 50 and single then you are more mature and experienced than anyone else. You know exactly what you are looking for in your date. Here are some tips that you can easily find a date.

    The first thing you must do is boost up your self esteem. Anything that makes you feel good about yourself like getting into physical activity, join a health club, try a new makeover, buy fashionable clothes etc. Now you are ready to find a date.

    The best place you can look out for is your hobby center. It is the place where you love spending your time most. It can be your club or your library or maybe you love being online. These places bring in like minded individuals together. And maybe there is a lot more common between the two of you to ask for a date.

    Looking for a date near your home can be better option too. Being in the same area can connect you very easily. People know you well and will not hesitate to think about you.

And you can chat with as many members you want and finally chose the one you find right for you. Once decided then you can go for a date.

    How To Stay Healthy While Being Middle-Aged And Unemployed

    yogaWith the failing economy of today, many professionals find themselves laid-off, unemployed, after having dedicated the biggest part of their life to their career. It might be really hard for some unemployed people to keep up good life habits and stay in good shape. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle, good habits and stay in a positive mindset are all necessary steps to an overall healthy life and will help you to get the strength to go back on the job-hunting market.

    First of all, it is essential to keep a positive attitude towards life, no matter how hard it might be to find yourself unemployed after 20 years of steady employment. Keeping a positive mindset will allow you to not fall into depression-related habit like smoking, binge drinking, eating fast food, not being active, etc. Use the opportunity of having more time on your hand to start exercising, to eat healthier, to do all those little daily things that used to be a drag and transform them in a healthy routine you can keep up every day. A new life awaits you, and it might be the time to change your lifestyle into a healthier one, considering you are approaching the middle-life, and should start thinking about taking care of yourself. You are not getting any younger, let's face it, and should be aware that without positive changes in your lifestyle (unless you are already leading a healthy life), you might be at risk for heart diseases and other conditions like arthritis. Keeping a routine of activities will help you resist the temptation of staying in pajamas in front of the television all day. Activities that can help you maintain a routine are, but not limited to:

    • Exercise

    • Taking up a class (like yoga, for example)

    • Reading, educating yourself

    • Rediscovering a hobby, etc.

    Don't mope around and pity yourself. Consider your unemployment as an opportunity. Working the same job for 20 years might have made you accumulate a certain amount of stress. Get rid of that stress. You don't have to get up in the morning to go to work. Use that opportunity to sleep in just a little bit more. Sleep deprivation is an important health condition and many 9 to 5 workers are subject to it. Sleeping a little more means you will wake up in a positive mood the day after, which is good if you are thinking of starting a workout routine. Exercising and eating healthy will give you a better physical and mental health, which are two important attributes if you are thinking of going back on the job-hunting market.

    Workout Advice For Those In Their 40s

    stairsAs a man or woman in your 40's, it might be hard to find the time and right type of exercises that might contribute to a healthier lifestyle. It is proven that exercise keeps you young, improves your strength, balance and mobility as well as reduces your stress level. The important thing that people over 40 years old needs to understand is that you need to know how often, how long and how hard you can exercise to keep the benefits at their maximum without compromising your health.

    Once you took the decision to start working out in your 40's, you need to make sure you start slowly, but surely. If you were not used to exercise a lot when you were younger, there's no need to rush at an older age. Your exercise routine needs to match with your skills level! It might also be a good idea to consult a health professional before starting any kind of new exercise routine. Heart problems, arthritis and other health conditions, which are frequent amongst the 40's and older population, need to be taken in consideration when constructing a new workout routine. It is also necessary to be aware that certain parts of your body need more attention at different cycles of life. Hiring a personal trainer might be a good idea if you like going to the gym, as personal trainers knows what's best in terms of workout.

    Small regular activities might also help you burn small amounts of calories that will add up at the end of the week. Things like:

    • Going up the stairs more often

    • Walking to do your errands

    • Run to the mailbox etc.

    These are a good way to boost up your metabolism and burn a couple of calories. Cardio workout is also a good idea, as we all know heart diseases are more present among people 40 and older. Doing cardio exercise will help the efficiency of your blood vessels and capillaries which will help your overall health condition. Four or five half-hour periods of cardio exercise are recommended. Strength training is also a good idea, but you need to be aware of your physical abilities and not lift too much weight. When your body becomes accustomed to doing 10 to 12 repetitions, you can start thinking of lifting heavier. Always listen to your body to not overdo exercises. You don't want to injure yourself!

    Always remember to not overdo exercise and to listen to your body, and you should be on the right track! When in doubt, always seek professional help to ensure you are benefiting from your workout

    How can I protect myself from sexually contagious diseases being a newly divorced middle aged man?

    condomsNowadays, the sex life of the middle-aged generation is becoming more and more active. It is important to understand what are the risks attached to a more active sex life and understand that it's never too late to start protecting yourself. Safe sex is a subject that had not been extensively discussed in the youth of the middle-aged generation, but now is the time to discuss protection against STDs, with the apparition of Viagra, online dating and the popularization of divorce.

    There is this popular belief among older men that condoms are not necessary after menopause or if they know the partner's history. The thing is there is no more valuable protection against every STDs than the use of condoms. The condom is not only a great item of protection against pregnancy, but also helps prevent the transfer of sexual diseases. Making sure you are aware of your newly found partner's sex history is a good way to be reassured concerning her health, but nothing will ever come up to the level of protection that a condom will bring you.

    STDs are far from being what they used to be. There has been an increase of antibiotic-resistant diseases in the past few years. It is really important to practice safe sex, but it is also important to consult a doctor as regularly as possible to be ensured that you are still in good sexual health condition, as many STD's might not show, or show very-little symptoms, which doesn't mean the condition cannot be passed on! Common STD's are:

    • Chlamydia

    • Genital Herpes

    • Gonorrhea

    • Syphilis

    • Genital warts

    Looking up after yourself is also a good way to maintain your immune system at its best. Exercising, eating well, avoid cigarettes and large alcohol consumption are all different ways to maintain your body in good condition, which will boost your immune system and help you fight viruses you might get.

    The best ways to protect yourself as a middle-aged man is to be educate yourself on the common types of STDs, so you really know how they are transmitted, what are the symptoms and how to treat them. Always carry condoms on you, you never known when you'll need one, so prevention is still to best way to be prepared. Regular check-up at a sexual health clinic are highly recommended. If you are having a regular partner, make sure she get's checked-up as well, you can never take too much precautions.

    Smoking and it’s Impact on Your Health

    You cannot buy a pack of cigarettes without seeing the warning lables, you cannot watch TV without hearing about it, you can’t claim to not understand the serious health issues that smoking will cause. No longer can people play the ignorance card when it comes to quitting smoking for their own health. Scientists, doctors and lawmakers all agree that smoking is killing people at an alarming rate. There are so many carcinogens and poisons in a cigarette that they are still trying to find all the negative effects of.

    Back in the mid 1900’s people believed that smoking was fabulous, it was the ‘in’ thing to do and there were no negative effects. By 2000 it was common knowledge that cancer, bronchitis, gangrene, heart-disease, heart attacks and a lowered immune system could all be cause by just being a smoker. You don’t have to smoke a whole pack a day, your just as at-risk as the person who smokes 3 packs a day. Your body is constantly battling the poisons in cigarettes, which means it’s wasting energy at all times trying to stave off your addiction.

    If you stop smoking right now you will live longer, thats a fact. Every cigarette you smoke reduces your life expectancy. If you don’t know why to quit smoking, or think that if you stop smoking the withdrawals will be bad, look at the longer-termed effects if you continue to smoke. Think about the hundreds of thousands of people a year who are diagnosed with cancer just from cigarettes. There are many ways to quit smoking, there is a way that is right for you, you’ll simply have to keep trying to stop smoking until you find the method that works for you.

    Below I’m going to just 10 of the illnesses, cancers and other health conditions that smoking can either directly cause, or secondarily increase the chances of you suffering in your lifetime.

    • Cancer

    • Heart Disease

    • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

    • High Blood Pressure

    • Gangrene

    • Heart Attacks

    • Slow Recovery Time From Injuries

    • Increased Respiratory Strain

    • Cardiovascular disease

    • Fertility Problems

    All of those are either directly caused from smoking, or their likelihood of occurring is greatly increased from smoking. If you wanting to stop smoking now, this should be your wake-up call. Your life is the most important thing to you, you should do everything you can to quit smoking, whether it be  cold turkey, or using a stop smoking aid, there are plenty of reasons to stop smoking merely for yourself. Make it a selfish decision, make it a life-extending and lifestyle improving change to better yourself and live a fuller, richer life.

    Cj by Cookie Johnson: Chatting with Michael Glasser About Denim for Women with Curves!

    In the denim world, few people have the street cred or could be called a legendary figure like Michael Glasser. He’s pretty much a historical figure,” a visionary” as he likes to put it about how to fill a niche and create a demand for a product that’s as basic yet so trend-sensitive as denim. Having started Seven for All Mankind (with Jerome Dahan and Peter Koral); then creating Citizens for Humanity with Dahan again. Changing up his business model and based on his talent in vision in design, Glasser created a “dream team” for denim design and created the brand Rich & Skinny (because when you wear it, you feel that way) that creates a luxe feel and appearance with superfine fabric, body styles and unique washs that are truly one of a kind.

    Through his own formidable blue jeans/geneaology, Glasser had uncovered this missing link market for the woman who wants a designer look, but doesn’t fit into the standard, slim cut of premium jeans. After a few meetings with Cookie Johnson about the premise for this line, Cj by Cookie Johnson was born to answer that demand: a new premium denim line embracing real bodies in both fit and style.

    What’s really incredible is that this line is for all women— regardless of age, size or ethnicity. This is for the real woman— who has curves, a butt and a waist. It’s got style, comfort, and serious versatility with presentations like the “boyfriend”, “straight”, “boot cut”, “high-waist trouser” and coming for fall, the “legging” — a super skinny jean.

    Now at this point you are thinking- yeah sure, uh-huh and you are thinking what has shee been drinking. This line fits from 24-38 meaning from 0-18. This is salvation for all you ladies out there from size 12 and up. You can have a sexy, slinky, and amazing pair of premium denim that will last, wear well and make you look fantastic.


    As Glasser and Johnson have both stated, this line is about targeting the missing demographic which is the middle American woman whose average size runs 12-14 and maybe a little bigger who has curves, has a real body and deserves to have some fabulous jeans— along with the skinny girls.
