Some crazy dudes climb straight up mountains to get a natural high. Others jump off the backs of them in search of the same buzz. But we have a much lazier answer, we just grab a bowl of curry. Yes, curry. Studies link curry consumption and the release of endorphins – dig in for your hassle-free Himalayan high.

We’re obsessed with Greg Brady’s tiki necklace, Magnum’s moustache, uke lessons and all things Hawaiian. So, it should come as no surprise that Lisa dreamt up this Coconut Chicken, a quick and simple, golden baked coconut and panko crusted chicken served up with sweet ‘n’ salty apricot dipping sauce. We will be celebrating National Apricot Day by devouring this Coconut Chicken with Apricot Sauce!

You know what they say…Beans, beans, they’re good for your heart….

With that in mind, we have our favorite Bean Recipes for you to enjoy today. Don’t forget to rinse them first!

THE TRADITIONAL WAY TO RINSE

1) Sort through the beans to remove any stones or debris.

2) With the beans in a colander, rinse them well with cold water, running your fingers through to reveal any more bits of dirt.

3) Transfer the beans to a large bowl filled with enough cold water to cover them by 2 inches. In hot weather, prevent the beans from fermenting by refrigerating while they soak.

4) Soak for 4-24 hours, until the beans have swelled to double their size.

5) Before cooking, drain the soaked beans and rinse once more before cooking the beans in fresh water.

THE QUICK-SOAK WAY TO RINSE

1) Rinse and pick over your beans for stones or debris.

2) Place beans in a pot and cover with 2-inches of water. Over high heat, bring to a boil, boil for 1 minute, remove from heat, cover pot and let sit for 1 hour.

Lisa and I have gigantic sweet teeth. In fact, we take great pride that neither of us has ever uttered the phrase, “Too sweet for me.” Grab a giant class of milk because you’re about to have the sugar rush of a lifetime when you dig into these rich chocolate brownies that are topped with soft chocolate-chip cookie dough. Clearly our idea of dessert isn’t a bowl of applesauce.
