Cookies for Breakfast!

January 24, 2015 | Posted by Stephanie Banyas

Cookies for breakfast? Yes, please! Actually, cookies are typically a part of my breakfast every day (unless, of course, I am having a candy bar or a bag of gummy worms with my coffee instead). I am, without a doubt, the least healthy eater on the B-team…but January is all about clean eating on BobbyFlay.com, so I challenged myself to create a wholesome treat that would give an energy boost and satisfy my morning need for sweetness, without any artificial flavors, colors or preservatives. Oh, and I really wanted my co-workers and all of you to love it too.

Brothy Seafood Goodness

January 22, 2015 | Posted by Christine Sanchez

With bone broths in the spotlight, temperatures hovering in the teens and the B-Team focusing on clean eating for the month of January, I decided to get brothy. Few things are better than a warm soup on a cold night -- and broths are a wonderful and easy way to create flavor while keeping calories and fat in check.

Delicious (Vegan) Chocolate Pudding

January 17, 2015 | Posted by Charlotte March

This month is all about cleaning eating for the B-Team (and many of those who hit the holidays a bit too hard!). For me, that means not just cutting out the booze, but also ditching the dairy, meat and gluten. Basically, I'm abstaining from all of my favorite things. But even with this “deprivation,” I don't have to skip dessert.

How to Get Your Grain Bowl On

January 14, 2015 | Posted by Sally Jackson

Make no mistake, the bowl is definitely having a moment. Açai bowls, grain bowls, savory porridge bowls…all the cool kids are eating them (at least that’s how it appears on Instagram). Is it trendy? Yes. But is it also an awesome, endlessly customizable, easy method for delicious clean eating? YES. I’m definitely on the bowl bandwagon.

I believe I can FLY...Barre

January 11, 2015 | Posted by Stephanie Banyas and Elyse Tirrell

A few weeks ago, we decided to give FlyBarre a try. We arrived at FlyBarre’s Flatiron location on 21st Street in Manhattan dressed in our workout clothes and ready for the challenge… Or were we?

Savory Yogurt Bowls

January 9, 2015 | Posted by Christine Sanchez

If you're only eating yogurt with honey and fruit, you're missing out! Savory yogurt is popular in many cultures that have yogurt as part of their cuisine. In Turkey, cilbir is a savory breakfast involving yogurt and a poached egg doused with paprika or chile butter. In India, yogurt is used in multiple savory ways: added to curries, as a marinade for meat, sometimes acting as a cooling agent for all the lively, hot spices, other times adding a richness to round out a dish. You'll find strained yogurt, labneh, throughout the Middle East, often stirred with garlic or drizzled with olive oil and za'atar.

A Smoothie that Drinks Like a Milkshake

January 4, 2015 | Posted by Stephanie Banyas

One of my favorite drinks in the world is the Blueberry-Pomegranate Milkshake that is served at Bobby’s Burger Palace. I love the glorious color, the fruity scent, and the creamy texture -- it’s so thick that you have to use an extra-wide straw to drink it! I wish I could drink one every day. January is all about clean eating on BobbyFlay.com, so I decided to do an experiment: Could I take my favorite milkshake and make a wholesome version of it, with a similar flavor profile and texture, that’s healthy enough to drink on the regular?

Burn Baby Burn...Calories, That Is!

January 2, 2015 | Posted by Stephanie Banyas

Rolling Stone magazine named it the "hot" exercise of 1993 and indoor cycling has maintained its status as one of the most popular group classes at fitness clubs all around the world. I, personally, have been taking Spin classes since 1994 (ummm, I started when I was 10, I swear) when it arrived at my local Equinox in NYC. From the moment I adjusted my seat and handle bars and started pedaling, I was immediately addicted!. Fast forward 21 years, and indoor cycling continues to be more popular than ever and is still a big part of my workout routine (I take classes 3 to 4 times a week.) I am happy to say, it still challenges me and keeps me fit and I love it just as much today as I did the first time I tried it!

December 29, 2014 | Posted by Christine Sanchez

According to a Southern tradition dating back hundreds of years, starting the New Year with black eyed peas brings good luck. Keeping that tasty ritual in mind, I think I have the perfect New Year’s Day brunch dish. Yes, I know that is quite some statement but I really do believe I know what I am talking about.

How to Deseed a Pomegranate

December 26, 2014 | Posted by Charlotte March

Pomegranates are a hallmark fruit of the holiday season. They look like an edible Christmas ornament -- one with an incredible inner architecture of bright, gem-toned seeds, bursting with flavor. One small problem: pomegranates can be a total pain in the you-know-what to deseed...if you don't know the trick, that is! Once you know the technique, less than a minute of work stands between you and a bowl of juicy pomegranate seeds.

Throughout the December holidays, we all do our very best to keep family traditions alive. Whether this is through family decorations or specific dishes or cultural customs, these traditions are what make our holiday gatherings truly special.

Laurence's Latkes

December 19, 2014 | Posted by Sally Jackson

It seems there are a million variations on the humble latke, from the outlandish to the old school. The one thing that everyone seems to agree on: you can’t celebrate Hanukkah without them (that and that their grandmother’s latkes were the best around…).

Sweet Memories (aka IT'S COOKIE TIME)

December 17, 2014 | Posted by Stephanie Banyas

When I was growing up, Christmastime was cookie time. At about six years old, I became my mother’s baking sous chef -- and my love of baking has only grown since then. While I was way too young to actually bake the cookies, I got to help with most of the prep: chopping the nuts for Italian Horns and Thumbprints in one of those old fashioned nut choppers, removing the Hershey’s Kisses wrappers for Peanut Butter Blossoms, and mixing the colored icings for the rolled sugar cookies.

The Perfect Fruitcake

December 15, 2014 | Posted by Stephanie Banyas

The poor, maligned fruit cake…probably one of the most hated cakes in the existence of baking. Is it any wonder? Would you want an incredibly dense, overly sweet, horribly boozy “cake” chock-full of fluorescent-colored candied fruit pieces?

Get Your Holiday Braise On

December 12, 2014 | Posted by Christine Sanchez

Let’s talk about the braise, baby! This festive, wintry dish of braised lamb shanks with toasted orzo, roasted garlic and slow-roasted tomatoes is a beloved Bobby classic from his former New York restaurant, Bolo. I worked in the kitchen and absolutely loved this dish -- but you certainly don't need to be a restaurant cook to make it!
