Recipes I've Shared:

Peruvian Chicken Cau Cau

Lightened up version of this classic Peruvian dish. It's very hearty and a complete meal in one pot.

Shredded Chicken and Lentil Stew

Easy one-pot meal, which is great for a cold winter night! Serve with a dollop of low-fat yogurt and garnish with cilantro for flavor. I add a little hot sauce for extra heat.

Chocolate Chip-Walnut Biscotti

A delicious Italian treat.... great served with hot chocolate or coffee!

Fresh Berry Tart with Toasted Nut Crust

Great use for all those summer berries!

Shrimp Salad with capers, tomato and celery

Easy, light, and low-carb/low-cal salad. Great served over a bed of romaine lettuce.

Apple-Oat and Peanut Butter Bars

Healthy snack bar, great for the trail or post workout! Also good as a light breakfast, with a cup of tea. Substitute your favorite nut-butter for equally delicious results!

Almond Cinnamon-Raisin Granola

Delicious as a snack, or with some yogurt and fruit for breakfast. Just be sure to measure out the portion size, because it can be addicting!

Spanish-style Black Beans

Simple bean dish. Goes well with my Mexican Baked Quinoa! Add a little shredded low-fat cheddar cheese, some chopped lettuce and tomato, and you've got yourself a deliciously simple vegetarian entree. Yum!

Mexican Baked Quinoa

This recipe was adapted from my favorite recipe for Mexican rice, but since I'm not eating white rice anymore, I figured why not attempt it with a healthier grain? I'm glad I did, because it turned out awesome!

*Just a note, the preparation does involve a food processor, but you can always use a blender.

*Also, if you have some kind of oven-proof saucepan, use that for the whole stove-top preparation to avoid pouring the hot mixture into an oven-safe dish. I need to get one for myself, pronto!

Mexican-style Tuna and Avocado Salad

Easy, quick lunch that I whip up at least once a week. If you're adverse to onions or spicy peppers, you can leave them out and it's still delicious!

Carrot-Ginger Soup

This soup is so simple, with the main ingredient being only carrots, and no potatoes or cream to thicken it. I'm sure there are many directions in which the flavors could travel, but I prefer to make it with a predominantly Indian taste. Feel free to adjust the spicy-level as necessary. I like it with a moderate to intense heat, but you can add more or less cayenne and crushed red pepper to suit your own taste. The final product should be smooth and evenly blended, so you will need some kind of food processing device to get it right.
