Proud2Cook Sautéed Greens with Caramelized Onions and Raisins

By Birdie--Sweet and savory, an under-appreciated pairing. While it may seem weird to cook raisins with your greens, trust me—it’s a match that won’t disappoint!

Proud2Cook Fettuccine Alfredo

This sauce, famous in the United States, was created in the restaurant Alfredo in Rome and known as linguine with triple butter.

Proud2Cook Pumpkin Pancakes & Waffles

As served at Pixar's Luxo Cafe, with minor tweaks by Recovery Dad, and based originally on the Fanny Farmer Cookbook recipe.

The Problem with #FoodPorn

By Angela Hui--At their core, eating disorders are all about obsession. Your illness is the voice that never quiets, whispering incessantly about the size of your thighs, the pounds you still think you need to lose, and most of all, food.

Proud2Cook Ultimate Banana Bread

Recipes for ultimate banana bread abound, but because they include an overload of bananas for flavor, the bread’s texture is often soggy. We wanted a moist, not mushy, loaf that tasted of banana through and through.
