Chocolate Chip & Banana Muffins
Very Good 4.5/5
(2 ratings)

These are very-easy-to-make muffins with a slight banana aroma and mouth full of chocolate!
The original recipe came from Food&Wine magazine. I have reduced the amount of sugar significantly as the ripen banana is usually very sweet. And I made three times less muffins than the original recipe called.

An improved and more flavorful version of my "Tuna Waldorf Salad with Pear". The Greek yogurt really makes the salad fresher and lighter. Though the calories in this one are slightly higher but it is due to increase of protein.

Lentil Soup with Smoked Turkey
(no ratings)

Low calorie, high protein, easy-to-make soup. Flavorful and delicious! You'll not believe how smoky-tasty it smells while cooking! We usually smoke the whole turkey on Thanksgiving so I cooked it with the turkey leftovers. I also prefer to serve it with soft goat cheese on top, it melts in warm plate and adds a very mild dairy creaminess to the dish.
