Happy Holidays

Happy Holidays, everyone – from my family to yours.

I decided to take this week off from recipe development, and my recipe posts will resume Tuesday, January 3rd. In the meantime, to keep your mouth watering, be sure to check out Saveur’s 20 Favorite Instagrams of 2016 (unexpectedly, I made the cut this year).

I always find the holidays to be a period of reflection. For example, here is a post I wrote around this time last year, summarizing lessons I’ve learned since switching my diet in 2010.

Finally, while I’m not one to make New Year’s resolutions, our family did come up one this year: for every box of stuff we get in the mail, we are going to donate a box of household items through the GiveBackBox.com program.

See you in 2017!

  1. Hi Russ,
    I’m glad you are taking a week off! Take one off more often. You are the best cook/recipe man I’ve ever encountered. I have all of your books and will buy everything you print. I’ve tried a ton of your excellent recipes. I want you to enjoy the process and please don’t get burned out! I don’t think you should even HAVE a schedule. I think you should post a recipe when you are darned good and ready! Thanks for everything you’ve done for this family cook. My family is healthier and happier at dinnertime because of YOU!

    Happy New Year!


    1. Thanks Tammy, I appreciate your kind words! It felt good to take some time off (and to focus on exclusively writing my upcoming book), but keeping up these weekly recipes is a big source of inspiration for me – it keeps me going! Happy New Year to you and your family as well!


  2. Wow! Congrats on ‘making the cut’! You’re in good company. I sure do appreciate your recipes with clear instructions and great photos!


  3. 1. Congratulations!
    2. You have the CUTEST boys.
    3. I love, love, love the Give Back Box idea! We have way too much junk-what a great way to give back and avoid accumulating more!
