I spend a lot of time in the kitchen, a lot of time. We cook almost every meal, every day. That's 21 meals a week and a lot of hours spent cooking together and alone. It's high time I bring in some humor. Something to make us us laugh and feel like those hours are mere minutes. I'm kind of a big kid at heart and a big fan of making light of our serious cooking adventures. Not to mention I love any gadget that's going to get the kids excited about helping and trying to cook something new. Check out all the ways I'm bringing silly back into the kitchen. - By Macki West

We love to grill, and fire it up pretty often. Mostly we cook boring chicken, but with Jafta's rapid ascent (descent?) into foodie obsession, we're always up for trying something new. So I did my homework-this is an excellent grilling book, and so is this one - and it turns out meat is not the only thing that does well on the grill. Anyone up for grilled fruit? Veggies? Dessert? Check out the gallery below for some of the things we may try later this fall. (We live in SoCal. Grilling season is year-round. Booyah.) - By Kristen Howerton

The latest statistics show that diabetes affects 25.8 million people in the United States alone, or about 8 percent of the population. That's quite an alarming figure, especially when it seems like healthy eating is a huge focus for many people these days. But others may not realize just how serious a problem diabetes can be. Diabetes results in a number of other serious health conditions, including kidney failure, non-traumatic lower-limb amputations, and even blindness among adults - in fact, it is the number one cause of these conditions in the United States. It is also a contributing factor to heart disease and stroke.

From what not to eat when you are pregnant, to the endless lists of the latest must-have superfoods, discussion about healthy eating tends to focus on what we eat.
Much less attention is paid to the question of how we eat it.
Yet a growing body of research suggests that changing our attitudes and practices around meals and mealtime rituals may be every bit as important as obsessing over what it is we actually put in our mouths. Mindful eating (also known as intuitive eating), a concept with its roots in Buddhist teachings, aims to reconnect us more deeply with the experience of eating - and enjoying - our food.
