Recipes I've Shared:

Mexican Flavoured Quinoa with Black Beans

I'm trying to make more vegetarian recipes and I had all of the ingredients for this kicking around my house. It turned out pretty good! Makes 2 good sized servings.

Roasted Potatoes with Blue Cheese Walnut Butter

I got this off of the Flat Belly Diet cookbook but I played with the ingredients a bit. It's also really good with a bit of fresh dill if you have some handy. You can play with the walnuts and blue cheese to get the calories you want.

Watermelon Curry

Sounds strange, but is soooo good!!

Pear Bran Muffins

This recipe is a Southbeach Diet recipe. The pear adds a nice moistness. You could also substitute apples.

I always use whole wheat flour, not whole wheat pastry flour as I never have that on hand. You could also subtract two tablespoons of whole wheat flour and add two tablespoons of cornstarch as a substitution.

Buttermilk: I pour 1 TBSP of vinegar in the bottom of my measuring cup and then add the milk. This sours the milk if you don't have buttermilk on hand. The vinegar activates the baking soda.

Sugar: I've also used regular sugar in this recipe which would increase the calorie count but is good for people who don't like artificial sweetners.

Tabouli Greek Salad

A great lemony salad that's perfect for lunch.

Vinaigrette Salad Dressing

A quick, tasty vinaigrette dressing. Great for garlic lovers.
