MRS's quick tips for fast salad dinners would leave me with a growling stomach at 3AM. Her suggestions sound more like snacks to me and less like hardy meals.

Also, I was curious about her use of non-stick pans. I have always thought they were kind of creepy, with bits of Alzheimer's and teflon warnings floating in the back of my mind. Is there a difference between various kinds of non-stick pans, are some healthier than others?

I agree with TJ's pasta. And for just a few dimes more you can buy it organic.

Thanks for making the point about the nonstick pans! Last time I was in Bed Bath & Beyond I noticed some new lines that claim to be non-toxic, but who really knows.

I included MRS's Q & A because I was making an "uneducated assumption" that she was speaking with authority that her "heavy Anolon (which is a brand name) non-stick skillet" was safe. But, I can't really find anything to substantiate that.

You're 100% right about fumes from Teflon. Here's the 2003 Environmental Working Group link:

I'll report back if I discover a "safe" non-stick.

Does anyone know if there is such a thing as a non-toxic non-stick pan?


I agree that all of her recipes look delicious and not a big deal to execute. Thanks for giving me the impetus to start trying more of them.
