Cole slaw (juniors)

junior's is a great restaurant. It is a dinner with a huge menu. Unfortunately their coleslaw has sugar but no mayo so it's a push. There is 1/2 tsp. of Mustard seed in this but Spark doesn't have it

This is a one skillet meal. You can service it in the skillet

Whatcha Got? Throw it in the Pot. Easy, yummy, healthy treat. Every week we get our half share of stuff from our CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) Farm. We don't know in advance what it will be but tonite it will be soup.

Quick and Easy Chicken Provencal

This great dish serves up in 20 minutes. The vegetables are braised right in the pasta water in the last few minutes of cooking the pasta. The original recipe called for 3 Tablespoons of pitted olives but I've left them out, Without them the recipe tastes fresher and you save on a little fat. Add a salad and you have a whole meal.

Shrimp, Peas and rice

Great way to use up frozen shrimp. Low calorie one dish meal.

Pumpkin Spice Muffins

It's amazing but the pumpkin does the job of the oil and eggs required by the mix. The muffin dough is dense so the muffin tops are not smooth but the muffins are absolutely delicious.

Non Dairy New England Clam Chowder

Taste like it loaded with cream without the calories

Barbeque Baked Chicken

This was adapted from an recipe for Carmelized Baked Chicken. We wanted a sauce and the flavor is delicious.

Whole Wheat Pasta with Braised Greens

This recipe is the perfect choice for Meatless Monday. Braising greens are a mix of greens that include kale, chard, collards, mustard, bok choy, raddichio, and turnip greens. In the cold, dark days of winter, the farmer's markets are full of baskets of these thick, green leaves in various sizes, shapes, and shades of greens. They're really great because you get several varieties of dark, leafy, chock-full-of-vitamins greens that are so versatile. Plus, they're delicious - each bite bursts with flavor and texture.

Grilled veggies with penne

Low calorie, fulfilling veggie main dish

Shoyu Chicken

Shoyu Chicken is a popular Hawaiian dish. It is often served with rice. The word shoyu is Japanese for soy sauce. Let the chicken soak in the marinade for at least an hour, the longer the better. Prep time includes marinating time.

Basil Garlic Pork Chops

Great for casual dining. Quick and easy.

Mango Shrimp

This great recipe comes from and it is superb. We use Manilla mangos. They are small and yellow, have the smallest easiest to remove pits and sweet and creamy. Shegdingit has great instructions on easily preparing the mangos.

Souvlaki Chicken skewers

We had this in Greece and I have done my best to reproduce this delicious chicken with yummy Greek yogurt sauce

Fluffy mac and cheese

My family has grown up on this. 2% cheese works great. So does skim milk

Pasta Primavera Redux

Fresh Veggies are the best! We belong to a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) and never know what kind of fresh veggies will show up. I made this great fresh meal from this week's veggies.
