What's for dinner?

I am downright giddy.

Remember my friend, Chef Annie Volk? She’s back and she’s ready to celebrate with me. I told her that I’m pretty darn psyched about all that's percolating in my practice and I asked her to come up with a special recipe. Something that will nourish your soul and make your toes tingle even though the holidays are “over”.

It happens doesn’t it? We put so much energy into the holidays being perfect and then, the ball sort-of drops when it’s all over. So this little number is a bit of inspiration and fresh air for you, your family and your friends. It's a simple recipe to anchor your meal. It's got a little bit of sweet and a lot of savory (...just how I like it).

In the comment section, let's tell Annie what you're really hungry for. Are you craving a special dessert or do you need a simple fish recipe? She's right here to help, just let her know what you need.

Now, Here's Chef Annie:

This is a fun recipe. The flavor combination of celery, onions, sage, thyme and sweet cranberries kind of remind me of traditional thanksgiving stuffing. I often make this recipe in my holiday cooking classes for those of us who don't/can't/won't eat bread.

I like to pair this dish (like most of my meals) with a lemon, salt and oil massaged kale salad or with a citrus mashed sweet potato.
