And on a side note, can we please talk about resolutions? I asked on facebook a few days ago what everyone thinks about resolutions and was surprised to find that I’m not alone in my not setting them. For me I’ve just found that resolutions really don’t stick. Instead I’ve been setting small goals throughout the year and working towards those. It’s actually been working great. One of my goals last year was to take better care of my body. I just wanted to make better decisions about what I’m eating, how much, drinking my water and keeping priorities in order. I can’t even begin to tell you how happy, healthy and peaceful this last year has been. It’s nice to feel more balanced. I’d love to hear what you all think about setting health goals versus dieting resolutions and more!


What Is Hash?

Hash is a dish made from cooked meat that is cut into small pieces and then cooked again.

Hash is usually made with potatoes.


What Is Cilantro?

Cilantro is a green plant known as coriander or Chinese parsley.

All parts of the plant are edible, but the fresh leaves and the dried seeds are the parts most traditionally used in cooking.


What Kind Of Potatoes Are Best For Hash?

Waxy potatoes are the ones that hold their shape the best after being cooked.

Yukon Gold, Red or new potatoes turn nice and creamy when cooked, but don’t crisp up very well.

Russets develop the crispest, craggiest crusts and will stay crunchy.
