Salmon w/ Curried Yogurt Sauce and Roasted Eggplant Puree

Seems like everyone has gone Greek.  And, no, I do not mean we all just joined a sorority.  Seems everyone is jumping on the Greek yogurt band wagon. What prompted my change from regular American yogurt to going Greek was the many more benefits Greek yogurt provides you. For starters Greek yogurt has substantially more protein than your ...

Pea & Dill Soup

Peas have not always been a particularly sexy veg.  In fact they have been made downright frumpy and dumpy by being canned with carrots, thrown in as an after thought to a frozen "mixed vegetable medley" and often turned into a grey-green swill that some establishments pass off as split pea soup. I however find peas positively stunning.  ...

Chocolate Pots

Yes.  Chocolate Pots.  The title of this post says it all.  It is literally a pot of chocolate.  A creamy, dark, delicious pot of chocolate.  A dense, luscious, rewarding serving of chocolate in a pot.  So, do you get it?  It is a pot of chocolate!! This is a recipe I stumbled upon and knew it could be adapted to fit my lifestyle.  I ...

Roasted Tomato Salad

This is an easy yet impressive salad with flavor that pops.  Plum or Roma tomatoes are most often the cheapest tomatoes you can buy at the market.  They are also the most bland.  But by roasting them you get this wonderfully concentrated smokey tomato taste. Tomatoes are a great source of lycopene.  Lycopene is a vital anti-oxidant that ...

Roasted Cauliflower Soup

How appropriate for me to love cauliflower.  After all it is a cruciferous vegetable and these vegetables, which include broccoli, cabbage and kale, derive their name from their four-petaled flowers which look like a cruicifer or cross. The health benefits of cauliflower and other cruciferous vegetables are amazing.  These veggies contain ...

Hot and Sour Crab Soup

Allow me to get on my "soup" box and proclaim how much I lurve this soup!!   It has so many different and profound flavors going on but comes together so well on the tongue.  Plus it has our body buddy ginger in it. Next time you are under the weather try this instead of Chicken Noodle Soup.  I had this tonight and it kicked the last of a ...

Chipotle Chicken Soup

Chipotle Chicken Soup This is a tasty spicy soup that is easy to make.  The chicken breasts can be cooked a day or two before or you can even use leftover chicken breasts from a roasted chicken dinner.  I am a bit strict about using a bone in chicken breast.  I find it to be much more flavorful than a boneless breast.  Ultimately though it ...

Easy Artichoke Chicken

This is a great one-pan wonder of a meal.  You can even assemble it in the morning, cover and keep in the fridge until it is time to pop it in the oven for dinner. Artichokes are essential when it comes to the healing Monday after the Sunday Funday.  Artichokes contain powerful antioxidants called flavonoids that protect the liver's cells and ...

Healthy Chick Salad

Let it be known that I do not put the chick in this chick salad.  The featured ingredient in my Healthy Chick Salad are chickpeas also known as garbanzo beans. Studies have confirmed that a fiber-enriched diet can greatly reduce the risks of both cardiovascular and coronary heart diseases and garbanzo beans are loaded in fiber.  Garbanzo ...

Peanut Butter Deluxe

You all know about the sick twisted love affair I have with peanut butter.  My obsession can be traced back to when I was but a wee thing and had my very first PB & J.  Skippy Peanut Butter & strawberry preserves  smooshed between 2 billowy slices of  Wonder Bread.  After that first sandwich I then proceeded to pretty much eat nothing ...
