    I do this all the time because I don't have much choice: Make dinner in 15 minutes or less. You too? Gone are the days when I used to lovingly labor for 2 hours on a Turkish fish stew with pomegranates. Now I need to get something in front of my son pretty much the moment I walk into the door.

    Here are 5 of my favorite go-to dinner recipes, things I can whip up in a jiffy but that are still definitely homemade.

    In her new book, The Kind Mama, Alicia Silverstone covers everything from her pregnancy to her beliefs on circumcision and vaccination. Though the book has only been out for two days, it's already got tongues wagging, as does a recent interview the famous vegan actress did with People about her parenting philosophies, in which she says she's "not against Western medicine. The problem is we’re using it as a first step for everything, even when it’s not needed."

    Alicia deserves applause for bravely putting that sentiment out there! She's right: We are far too quick to jump to conventional medicine "fixes" -- which can be disappointingly closer to temporary bandages than true cures -- for too many of our ailments.

    Inspired by an Asian recipe, Hudson Valley based Chef Ryan McClintock brought this green bean dish to the Italian side with a fresh herbaceous handmade aioli. Aioli is basically the best mayonnaise you've ever had -- with a twist. Pair the warm green beans with salt cured radishes for a bitter and sharp combination. Once the aioli is added, this makes a great vegetable dish or starter.  

    You can taste Ryan's dishes at the highly regarded farm to table restaurant Global Palate in West Park, NY, where he is Sous Chef. Here is the recipe for these delicious warm blistered green beans and salt cured radishes with a cool aioli you'll want to put on everything.

    Thinking of going vegan in 2014? Maybe you should look away from these photos. Or maybe you should take a closer look, just to say goodbye to some of the yummiest foods ever invented. You know, just to make sure you're making the right decision. Do you realize what you're giving up? It just makes me sad. I mean, don't get me wrong. I admire your resolve, really, I do. It's just that ... I cannot possibly conceive of going vegan as long as I know these foods are out there.

    We can talk about why America is the most indulgent, wasteful, decadent country in the world another day. Today we're talking about why it's a mistake to go vegan. Did I say talking? I meant looking at pictures.

    I have a complicated relationship with eating meat. I do it, and I find it to be delicious. The complication comes in when I am confronted with the death of animals, for whom I loudly (and often) purport to have a great fondness. If I really loved animals, I probably wouldn't eat them. But I do. Because I lack the moral fiber to make that change and because also bacon is delicious.

    This makes me a rapist and a pedophile. Don't take my word it, ask former Smiths' front-man Morrisey. The known crazy-person (and crooner who you shouldn't listen to while on a road-trip or you WILL careen into a ditch while sobbing about your eighth grade boyfriend) went on another rant about the evils of meat-eating culture. Which, you know what? Fine. I get it. I see that it's an ethical problem. But saying I'm no better than a rapist or a pedophile? That's not just undermining your argument -- it's undermining your species.

    Other than the odd rumor that she does the extreme Master Cleanse or that she ate a seriously calorie-restricted, protein-packed diet to shed her baby weight after Blue Ivy, Beyonce has never really been all that vocal about her diet. But now her husband, Jay-Z, is sharing all the details about a plan they're doing together. The power couple is going vegan! Well, at least temporarily.

    Jay broke the news on his blog yesterday, explaining that the timing for them to try the switch to a plant-based diet couldn't have been more perfect. After all, he celebrates his 44th birthday today!

    Thanksgiving is quickly approaching, and I can't wait to sit down with a plate full of my favorite Thanksgiving dishes. I don't want to go to dinner empty-handed though, so I searched Pinterest for a Thanksgiving side dish that seemed to be popular and discovered a turkey-shaped veggie tray that has been pinned thousands of times.

    No offense to vegetarians, but for me, one of the tell-tale signs that I'm eating something extraordinarily delicious is if I don't even realize it contains not an ounce of meat. This creamy, cheesy, absolutely amazing baked pumpkin fettuccine alfredo, courtesy of How Sweet It Is, is the perfect meal to try as we -- believe it or not -- wind down from pumpkin season and shift into gingerbread, eggnog, and all-things peppermint season.

    Okra has a public relations problem. Bring it up with most people and they'll wrinkle their noses. Okra? Eww! That weird, slimy vegetable? Why not eat your own mucus? The word "nasty" comes up a lot. And that's how I used to see okra, too. But lately friends of mine have been urging me to give it another chance -- so I have. And you know what? Okra haters are missing out. It doesn't have to be slimy, but it can be fantastic. Here's what you should know about this poor, misunderstood vegetable.
