Weight loss is a common vow when the New Year rings in, so
keep the Berry Healthy Café (350 Walt Whitman Road,
Huntington Station 631-923-2478) in mind as you pursue that.
The casual eatery focuses on healthym nutritious fare, including
fresh fruit smoothies, frozen yogurts and warm savories like
toasted wraps/paninis, chopped salads and soups. Their mantra
is eat wiser, live healthier, and they prove it
can be done on the run, too.
IM MELTING: Our editor got in the holiday spirit this
year by making her first-ever batch of Melting Snowman Sugar
Cookies. She said the recipe is simple, but its the
decorating that takes up most of your time. Youll need:
a recipe for basic sugar cookies, white icing, several tubes
of colored icing (one should be black or brown), and marshmallows.
After you bake the sugar cookies, cover them with the white
icing. Pop a marshmallow into the microwave for 10 seconds
at most, and then plop it on the cookie. Decorate the marshmallow
with the dark icing (a black food marker works too), giving
your snowman a face, and use the dark and colored icings on
the cookie to give him arms, a scarf, and anything else youd
like. If youre feeling really festive, dig through a
bottle of sprinkles and use the orange ones for a carrot-like
nose. In the end, youll have a yummy treat thats
appropriate all winter long.
