Spaghetti Puttanesca

One of my favorite pasta recipes not exactly low-fat but full of good, heart-healthy fats.

Energy Balls

Provide quick energy whenever you're running out of steam, or after a hard workout when you need a quick fix for your blood sugar. They are NOT low-cal, they are intended as a snack to tend you over when you don't have time to prepare something. Full of fiber and healthy fats they do the trick.

carrot and zucchini "tagliatelle"

This is a great way to lighten up your pasta dish, and to add more veggies into your day. Might be a good way to "sell" those veggies to your pasta-loving kids, too.

Dark German Molasses Bread

This bread is typically made with beet molasses in Germany, but any other kind of dark molasses or blackstrap will do.
It is quite rich in fiber and very filling. The molasses makes it additionally rich in trace minerals.

Heavenly Sour Cream Cookies

This recipe came along with a pair of cookie cutters in the shape of angel's wings that you can hang on the rim of your coffee cup.

I didn't plan to share this recipe, just entered it to calculate the calories, but was asked by a teammate to share it. I apologize if anyone objects to it not being healthy or low-fat.

Risotto with Mushrooms

A delicious creamy Risotto preferrably done with chanterelles, but any of your favourite mushrooms will work! You could also replace the chicken stock by vegetable broth for a vegetarian version.

Katrin's Vichyssoise

A cold soup made of potatoes and leeks, perfect for hot summer days.

Meatballs a la Koenigsberg

A traditional german recipe that originates from the east prussian cuisine.

Basic European Pancakes

I'm calling these "European" Pancakes as opposed to the ones i have come to know as American Pancakes, because mine are thin and about 8" in diameter, instead of small, thick and fluffy.
They are known all over Europe, the French call them Crepe, the Dutch Pannenkoeken and the Austrians and Czech Palatschinken.
They can be sweet or hearty - i add apple slices for my favourites.

Middle Eastern Watermelon Salad

A refreshing middle eastern salad that gets its zing from the fresh mint leaves. I know this is very similar to another recipe on, but i found this dish calls for lemon juice instead of balsamic vinegar.

Lemon Mousse

A light and fluffy dessert served with raspberries

Crustless German Cheesecake

A relatively low-carb variation of my old-fashioned german cheesecake

Vegetarian Lasagna with Spinach & Soy Meat

A hearty Lasagna version with granulated soy meat instead of ground beef
