BY CHEF JOHN BESH: Often, in the first week after Mardi Gras, we have the compulsion to suddenly review our New Years Resolutions: get back on that diet, remember to exercise, give up something, be it sweets, alcohol, or caffeine. Despite its Catholic roots, our culture still associates Lent with a time to better to ourselves and spend more quality time appreciating our family and friends. Take that appreciation to a new level this Lenten season! You can achieve all your goals with some of my favorite Lent-friendly recipes below - healthy, family-friendly, and fun to gather around the table to share!
