Recipes I've Shared:

Lima Bean Hummus

Slight edit to a recipe from Eating Bird Food's website http://www.eatingbirdfood.com/2012/09/basi
l-lima-bean-hummus/. Lovely light green color, good for sandwich spread and to hide lima beans!

Cucumber, Tomato, Bell Pepper Mint Salad

Modified from The Omni Diet by Tana Amen, RN: this is the "Beautiful Brain" Cucumber Mint Salad.

White Bean and Cucumber Salad

Had a lot of cucumbers to use up, so I threw together this salad. You can omit the chicken for a vegetarian dish.

Coconut Chocolate Chia Pudding

Tasty way to get Omega-3's. From Women's Running Magazine, March/April 2012 p. 59.

Cinch! Chipotle Chocolate Truffles

This is based on the chocolate truffle recipe in Cynthia Sass' Cinch! Diet book. I doubled the quantity and replaced her almond butter with peanut butter, and I didn't quite get the 10 truffles out of the batch that I was supposed to. Easy to make and tasty. Must be refrigerated though.

Turkey Lentil Soup

Used up post holiday leftovers with this soup: made my own broth from turkey bones, celery from the veggie tray, onions, peppercorns, lemongrass, ginger and star anise.

Vegan Banana Shake

Modification of a recipe from the Carb Lovers Diet

Cheesy Broccoli Pasta Casserole

This started as mac and cheese and evolved.

Chicago Style Spinach Pizza with Whole Wheat Crust

Improvised this recipe from a pizza dough I make regularly and inspiration from Chicago Fire Pizza in Sacramento. I make the pizza dough in a food processor, so the preparation time reflects that--it may take longer if you mix by hand.

Chocolate Banana Bundt Cake

This is a combination of two of my favorite banana cake recipes. The banana liqueur adds a great punch of banana flavor.

Pasta with Tuna, Artichoke Hearts and Capers

This is a great pantry staple, easy to pull together and very flavorful
