Recipes I've Shared:

Quinoa edamame salad

The best quinoa salad I have EVER made!!!! So easy!

Spinach salad with hearts of palm, tomatoes, and avocado

This salad is a fan favorite and always goes when I have company! FYI - The calorie content per serving is higher than in reality because I can usually stretch the dressing to use for 2 salads... It is too much for one salad but I always make more because I make this salad often.

Beef and Bean Chili - from Chef Jeff Nathan

There is nothing low cal about this recipe... I just entered it in to see how many calories it was. BUT - It's great chili and every once in a while, why not?

Sun Dried Tomato Spread

Great with Pasta, in wraps, as a condiment with protein dishes....

Passover Matzoh Brie (sweet)

This is a Passover favorite in our house!

Fresh Pesto

When the basil I grow in my hydroponic herb garden overflows, this is a great way to use it up!!! Great on fish, pasta, potatoes, or as a spread on toast or crackers!

Sushi salad

This is a side dish that is an interpretation of a california roll in salad form. YUM!!!

Chicken Soup

The longer you let this cook the better it will be... I let mine cook on a very low flame overnight.

Cholent in Crock Pot

I do not use potatoes in my cholent - the classic recipe omits the carrots & uses potatoes instead. I prefer it this way AND it is much healthier!

Savory Butternut Squash with Leeks & Onions

This is a very low calorie dish that is wonderful comfort food in the winter. I buy the pre-cut squash which cuts the prep time tremendously!

Baked Sweet Potato Chili Fries

LOVE these!! Make them all the time & the kids love them too. Just the right amount of sweet, salty, & spicy.

Pumpkin Crumb Pie - Reduced Calorie!

This is a delicious crustless Pumpkin Pie recipe I created by replacing the crust with the crumb topping from my favorite cobbler recipe... YUM!!!


Incredible! (1 rating)
Best Challah Recipe EVER!!!!!

I use a heavy duty mixer to do the kneading (has a 7 pound flour capacity.) If you don't have one of these the dough will be very difficult to work with unless you add more flour (which will change the texture of the finished product a bit.)

Butternut squash & sweet potatoes

Yummy comfort food in the cold winter months. Serve plain over rice or as a side dish. Makes a really large serving!!! If you eat it as a side dish - halve the serving & nutritional info!!!

Asian Inspired Barbecued Salmon Salad

So easy to prepare. Healthy & delicious!!

Root Vegetable Soup

Delicious on a cold winter day. Makes a ton & it freezes well in freezer bags! I cheat & buy the pre-peeled yams & squash so there is virtually NO prep time!
