Bacon and eggs, turkey and stuffing, macaroni and cheese. Each of these foods are delicious when eaten alone, but complement each other when paired, making them even better together. Such is the case with strawberries and rhubarb. Grimacingly bitter eaten on its own, rhubarb needs the sweetness that strawberries provide.

My family and I eat pretty healthy. That said, we could eat more fish and less red meat. The American Heart Association advises we eat fish that is rich in omega-3 fatty acids at least two times each week. It's also important to note that a serving size is 3.5 ounces – about the size of a deck of cards.

Once in a while, I have to have a fast and easy chocolate fix. Now, that could mean a quick trip to the store to buy a chocolate bar to curb that craving. But, no. I'm talking a chocolate dessert that I can nibble on for a few days. Plus, it's a great recipe to get the kids involved in baking because of its simplicity. And don't forget to give them the paddle and spatula to lick off all that chocolate batter.

Ever since food and cooking became my profession rather than a hobby (17 years but who's counting?), I've lived by the motto, "Eat everything, in moderation." That goes for things I love to eat more of – cheese, bread, dessert – and foods I'm happy to eat less of – hot chiles, cilantro, raw alliums. Allium is the family that includes onions, shallots and garlic.
