Avgolemono with chicken (Greek chicken soup)

This is a delicious twist to chicken soup. I first had this at a Greek restaurant, fell in love with it and went in search of a recipe. This is a combination of a couple of recipes I found. Next time I make it I think I'll take a short cut and use store bought low sodium chicken stock. You really need to use fresh lemons, the bottled juice just isn't the same.

Grilled Corn salad with fresh herbs and veggies

One of the best things about summer is the fresh vegetables that you can get at a farmers market or your own garden (or if you're lucky like I am, a neighbor's garden). Grilling really brings out the flavor of the corn and zucchini, and it's so easy to do.
The other great thing about summer is the herbs. You can use any combination you like. I used basil, cilantro, oregano and lavender, but use what's available and what you like.
This is a really easy salad to make, the prep work just takes some time but it's really worth it.

Chick pea Salad

This is a nice light salad that is perfect for a picnic since there's no mayonnaise in it.

Springtime Frittata

This is a delicious and easy meal to use left over Easter ham and veggies. But you can make it anytime and substitute any of your favorite fresh veggies! It's great for any meal, breakfast, lunch or dinner. I like to make it for dinner and have some left over for lunch at work the next day.

Braised Salmon in White Wine

This is a light, quick and tasty dinner for one. but it can easily be adapted for more by doubling or tripling the recipe. It's easy to adapt to different tastes by simply adding other spices to the salt and pepper. I like using a caribbean spice blend. Serving suggests; serve with brown rice (not included in nutritional information).

Black beans and brown rice

Makes a great side dish to mexican or caribbean style chicken.

Hungarian Chicken Paprikas

This is a Hungarian dish that is very easy and tasty. Can be served with whole wheat noddles, rice or if you want to slurge a little cook some frozen perogies.

Apple Spice Cake

This is a really easy and quick cake using a boxed cake mix, to have in the fall when it's apple season. Preparing the apples takes the most time, so recruit help from the family!

Orzo Salad

New Year's Day Good Luck Salad

I adapted a recipe I seen on The Food Network to combine two foods that are thought to bring good luck when eaten on New Year's Day to make this salad. Italians believe Lentils bring prosperity in the New Year, and in the South people believe Blackeyed Peas do the same thing. This is really good and easy to make.
