4 (8-ounce) steaks 1/4 cup(s) olive oil 4 tablespoon(s) freshly cracked peppercorns, crushed, not ground to powder! 1/2 cup(s) sweet butter 2 tablespoon(s) good Cognac 1/2 cup(s) (strong and dark) veal stock, something to keep in your freezer Salt and pepper


Impressive Dental Richard Phillis, D.D.S. Craig B. Anderson, D.D.S. CLINICAL OBJECTIVES

For steak: Preheat the oven to 425ºF. Moisten the meat very slightly with oil, then dredge each of the steaks in the crushed peppercorns to thoroughly coat. Don’t be shy with the pepper. Heat the remaining oil in the skillet over high heat. Once the oil is hot, add 1/4 cup or 4 tablespoons, which is half of the butter. Place the steaks in the pan and brown on all sides, about 5 minutes per side. Transfer the pan to the oven and cook until desired doneness, about 5 to 7 minutes for rare, 10 minutes for medium rare, and so on. Remove from the oven and remove the steaks from the pan to rest. Have I told you yet to always rest your meat after cooking? I’ve told you now. For sauce: Return the skillet to the stove top and carefully stir in the Cognac. As much fun as it is to create a column of flame as you add flammable material to an incredibly hot pan, it’s not really desirable or necessary — especially in a home kitchen. Unless you’re a pyromaniac, I recommend carefully adding the Cognac to the still-hot pan off the flame, stirring and scraping with the wooden spoon to get every scrap, every peppercorn, every rumor of flavor clinging to the bottom of the pan.

Celebrity Diet Secrets

Glee’s Amber Riley Ditched Fast Food And Dropped Two Sizes Amber Riley’s character on Glee, the bold and confident Mercedes, isn’t all that different from Amber herself. On and off camera, Amber didn’t see her larger frame as a setback because she believes, “it’s truly what’s on the inside that counts.” She recently told People, “I’ve always been comfortable with my size. I just decided it was time to get healthy.” After stomach pains brought 26-year-old Amber to the doctor, she said, “I decided I was going to make a change and eat healthier.” She ditched fast food, including burgers, because she says they “were attacking my stomach.” Within seven months of eating healthier and exercising regularly, the singer and actress is proud of her weight-loss milestone — “I dropped two dress sizes!” Weight loss is definitely an added perk to switching to a healthy diet and Amber beams, “I’m a lot more comfortable in dresses, especially gowns.” The actress has always been a role model for body confidence, but it sounds like this Glee star is feeling even more confident in her new, slimmer frame.

Practiced in India for more than 5,000 years, ayurvedic tradition holds that illness is a state of imbalance among the body’s systems that can be detected through such diagnostic procedures as reading the pulse and observing the tongue. Nutrition counseling, massage, natural medications, meditation, and other modalities are used to address a broad spectrum of ailments. As a traditional medicine, many ayurveda products have not been tested in rigorous scientific studies and clinical trials. Safety concerns have been raised about Ayurveda, with two U.S. studies finding about 20% of Ayurvedic treatments tested contained toxic levels of heavy metals such as lead, mercury and arsenic.

Family Life

5 Ways To Make Your Child Miserable The best parenting advice I ever got was from a cousin who had two sets of twins. Upon the birth of my first child, she said “Heed my words -- NEVER make a happy baby happier.” I didn’t get it at first, but more than ten years later this has become my parenting mantra. For many parents (me included) it can be hard to accept that our help won’t make our children’s lives just a little bit better. But believe me. It won’t. And to illustrate my point I’ve compiled a list of the 5 most common tantrum-inciting things you can do to an otherwise content baby or toddler. Just try one. You’ll see. 1.

Moving your sleeping child from their car seat into the house so they can have a more comfortable nap.


Waking your child to change them out of a wet diaper in the middle of the night.


Adding to a picture they’re working on ... just to make it “prettier” (or neater, or more colored in the lines). Step away from the crayons.


Paying for expensive seats to a live kids show and insisting they watch every last second of it.


Adding salt, cheese or ketchup to your child’s food without asking first.

Cover Story

Rebecca Romijn’s Hot Yoga Workout The actress credits her smokin’ post-baby bod to steamy Bikram yoga sessions. Try this four-asana sample of a typical 90-minute class.

Balancing Stick Targets butt and legs. Stand with feet together, arms by sides. Step forward with right leg and hinge forward at hips as you reach both arms overhead, interlacing fingers and pointing forefingers up. Simultaneously lift extended left leg behind so that body is as close to parallel to floor as possible from fingertips to left foot. Hold for 15 to 20 seconds. Then repeat sequence.

Half-Moon Targets arms, abs, obliques, and butt. Stand with feet together, arms by sides. Extend arms overhead and interlace fingers, pointing forefingers up. Side bend to right at waist, keeping chest facing forward, and hold for 30 seconds. Straighten up, then repeat to left for 30 seconds.

Awkward Pose Targets shoulders, butt, quads, and calves. Stand with feet hip-width apart, arms by sides. Squat until thighs are parallel to floor as you reach arms forward. Hold for 20 to 30 seconds, then return to start. Rise up on balls of feet (heels off floor) and lower into squat, knees bent 90 degrees, as you reach arms forward at shoulder level. Hold for 20 to 30 seconds; return to start. Repeat.

Full Locust Targets back, arms, butt, and legs. Lie facedown on floor with arms by sides, palms up, and legs extended on floor behind you. Lift chest and arms off floor as you squeeze glutes and lift thighs off floor, bending knees slightly. Hold for 10 seconds. Lower, rest for 20 seconds and repeat. Repeat again on each side.

Sudoku How To Play A Sudoku is a number grid. The aim of the game is to fill in the missing numbers. There’s only ever one correct answer. You’ll see the big grid is split into nine mini-grids. In every row in each mini-grid, you must have each of the numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9. These can be in any order.

Fitness Questions

What is CrossFit training and is it appropriate for the average person? CrossFit is an intense exercise program featuring dynamic exercises like plyometric jumps, and Olympic lifts while using non-traditional weightlifting equipment such as kettlbells, sand-bags, suspension systems or water-filled implements. The program is structured in such a way that participants are challenged to do a certain number of repetitions in a workout in a specific time frame; the more advanced CrossFit participants will actually compete against each other to see how fast they can complete the daily workout and post their results on the CrossFit website. Due to the intensity and explosive muscle action of the exercises in a CrossFit workout, there are many benefits for the average exercise enthusiast; however, the intensity of the exercises which deliver the benefits could also increase the risk of injury if not done correctly. Before beginning a CrossFit program, work with a personal trainer to learn how to perform the movements required for the workout. Checkout the site to find a gym with a certified trainer near you.
