New Years Resolutions 

2012 is here and it's time for the highly anticipated or dreaded, New Year resolutions. Many of us start off with grandiose goals, not realizing that success requires consistent dedication and commitment.  That's probably why elliptical machines are never available in gyms in January and their popularity begins to fade in February.
It's not that we don't want to succeed or aren't capable; it's just we end up neglecting our "resolution" time towards something or someone else. As we all know, when duties or responsibilities call, we're usually there. Therefore, I propose making 2012 the year of realistic, achievable goals. So, instead of declaring that you'll work out at the gym every day, consider changing your lifestyle. Stairs will take you to the same place that an elevator will and baby steps will eventually lead to success.  

Tasty Collard Greens

"A classic recipe for collard greens that uses smoked turkey to add some flavor. Greens are simmered in chicken stock, then spiced with a dash of red chile flakes."

Original Recipe Yield 10 servings

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 5 cups chicken stock
  • 1 smoked turkey drumstick
  • 5 bunches collard greens - rinsed, trimmed and chopped
  • salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
  1. Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add garlic, and gently saute until light brown. Pour in the chicken stock, and add the turkey leg. Cover the pot, and simmer for 30 minutes.
  2. Add the collard greens to the cooking pot, and turn the heat up to medium-high. Let the greens cook down for about 45 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Reduce heat to medium, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Continue to cook until the greens are tender and dark green, 45 to 60 minutes. Drain greens, reserving liquid. Mix in red pepper flakes if desired. Use liquid to reheat leftovers.
