Sometimes you just get lucky and you have really, really talented friends. I’m one of those people. Not only is my friend Valerie Curtin a brilliant actress and an Academy Award nominated screenwriter, she’s an amazing cook. I’m proud to share her easy Beet & Beef Borscht recipe made two ways: in the Instant Pot and traditional stove top. And guess what? It’s only 3 Weight Watchers Smart Points for those counting.
I met Valerie years ago years ago when I landed my first writing job on the TV series “9 to 5.” We’ve been friends since. She has an extensive list of credits which you can of course Google, but here are just a few to whet your appetite: she’s appeared in the films Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore, All the President’s Men, Silver Streak, and her work as a writer includes And Justice For All, Toys, and Best Friends. Most recently, she’s written a brilliant play and I’ll post more on that when I can!
So, there you have it. Now you can prepare and enjoy her Beet & Beef Borscht with your family and friends… and when dinner is over — catch a movie afterwards.
