Bills Great Meals, a customized in-home personal chef service, is now available for busy Long Island families. Bills Great Meals is owned and operated by Bill McCabe and offers ‘palate-specific’ personal meals cooked with fresh ingredients in private homes.

Bills clients appreciate the service. “It gives us precious time together at the end of a busy day. No shopping . . . no cooking . . . no cleaning up. For us, it’s a luxury we can afford,” says Dr. Norman Haywood, a busy physician and client of Bill’s. Janette his wife agrees, “When we add up the food and restaurant bills we realize we are not spending any more than we did before . . . but we’re eating like kings.”

Chef McCabe meets with each client to determine their specific dietary needs. The menus are agreed upon and a cooking day is selected. I shop for all the food, come into the client’s home to prepare their meals. Then I refrigerate, freeze them and clean up the kitchen. “I leave nothing behind but a mouth watering aroma and great healthy food,” says Chef McCabe. “The cost is about the same that people are currently spending on food shopping and eating out.”

“Eating Healthier by Reducing Your Pesticide Consumption”

October 28th, 2013 by Chef Bill

Everyone is interested in eating healthier, but where do we start? One of the easiest things to do is to reduce our consumption of food that is known have the highest concentration of farm pesticides. The USDA publishes a list every year which has come to be known as the “dirty dozen”. Here are 12 of the most highly pesticide treated fruits and vegetables:
Apples, celery, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, grapes, hot peppers, nectarines, peaches, potatoes, spinach, strawberries, sweet bell peppers, kale/collard greens and zucchini.
If you’re sharp enough, you’ve noticed that this list totals 14 fruits and vegetables. That’s because the rating organizations have included a “plus” category for the kale/collards and zucchini. This plus category includes domestically grown summer squash and leafy greens, specifically kale and collards. While they didn’t make the top 12, they were found to be commonly contaminated with pesticides that are exceptionally toxic to the nervous system, including organochlorine, which has been banned for home use and withdrawn for many agricultural uses, but is still applied to certain commercial crops.
Use this list as a starting point for your diet. If you regularly eat these foods, try and buy organic or at a minimum, make sure you wash these fruits and vegetables very well prior to eating or serving them to your family.
Healthy Eating,
Chef Bill

Roast Turkey with Apples and Cider Sauce

October 3rd, 2013 by Chef Bill

Ingredients

• 1 (3 pound, boneless) turkey roast
• 1 tablespoon olive oil
• 2 teaspoons unsalted butter
• 2 (1/2-pound) Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and each cut into 16 wedges
• 1 cup low-sodium fat-free chicken broth
• 2/3 cup unfiltered apple cider
• 1/2 teaspoon arrowroot (cornstarch)
• 1 tablespoon water
• 2 teaspoons cider vinegar
• 1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Preparation
Preheat oven to 375°F.
Rub Turkey with olive oil and place skin side up on a rack in roasting pan. Combine seasonings; sprinkle over roast. Bake at 375 degrees, (45 to 60 minutes) or until meat thermometer reads 165 degrees.
Transfer to a platter and let stand, loosely covered with foil, 15 minutes before slicing.
While meat is standing, melt butter in skillet over moderately high heat until foam subsides. Add apple wedges and sauté, turning occasionally, until tender and golden brown, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer apples to a plate, and then add chicken broth and cider to skillet. Bring to a boil over high heat and meanwhile whisk together arrowroot and water in a small bowl. Whisk arrowroot mixture into sauce and boil until thickened and reduced to about 1 cup, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in vinegar, measured salt and pepper, and any juices that have accumulated on platter.

Cut meat into 1/4-inch-thick slices and serve topped with apples and sauce.

Happy Eating!
