Astrology.Com Daily FoodScopes -- Thursday August 16, 2012

Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Turns out a favorite restaurant dish is a lot easier to make at home than you thought. Roasted bone marrow and parsley salad looks and tastes amazing, but you can actually reproduce it in your own kitchen for a fraction of the cost.

Black beans and corn are tasty, good for you and extremely cheap. Today, during the height of summer heat, serve them as the heart of a salad. Romaine lettuce, cucumbers, parsley and other crisp greens make great accompaniments.

Gemini (May 21 - June 21)
Feel like you're spending more money each and every month? It's time to get it under control before it goes too far. One good place to start is your restaurant bills. Cutting back on take-out, eating out and outside coffee will save you dough immediately.

Cancer (June 22 - July 22)
Keep your eyes and ears open for any constructive criticism when it comes to a favorite dish of yours. A coworker might suggest something unusual, like adding a dash of macadamia nut oil to your salad dressing that turns out to be positively genius.

Leo (July 23 - August 22)
Do everyone a favor and put away your cell phone if you're dining with friends. After all, what's the point of having a face-to-face interaction if you're just going to spend the time staring at a small screen and tapping messages to other people?

Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
Domestic tranquility is a big priority for you -- when a person steps into your house, they're immediately struck by what a welcoming retreat the place is. Complete that feeling by creating your own spa water -- float cucumber, lemon or orange slices in chilled H20.

Libra (September 23 - October 22)
In cooking (and in life), every mistake is an opportunity. Brownies came about when a chocolate cake recipe didn't work, and that's one example of hundreds. So give yourself permission to experiment and to let yourself both succeed and fail.

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
Knowing when to apply pressure is the secret to creating great grilled paninis and tofu with a crispy, golden crust. You don't need fancy tools, either -- you're great at improvising. Cans atop a cutting board work for sandwiches. A heavyweight spatula gives the right amount of press to create great fried tofu.

Laugh it off if you get caught doing something mildly embarrassing today, like eating beans out of a can or eating ice cream with a knife. You're loaded with charm, so you can actually use this moment as an opportunity to connect.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
You're not the type who gets swept away by food crazes, and thank goodness. Some of your friends have crates of acai berry juice going bad or are committed to cleansing in a deeply disturbing way. You listen to your body and you care about health.

Not everyone has your tolerance for the unusual. While you may want to try an ultra flavorful spice or super authentic Mongolian barbecue, others want easier, less complicated meals. Seek out an adventurous dining companion for your more daring forays.

Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
You have tender feelings, but sometimes you have to set some boundaries in order to foster your health. If you find that eating refined wheat leaves you feeling bloated and moody, it's time to limit your contact to rare or none at all.
