Recipes I've Shared:

Russian salad (with salmon and mixed vegetables)

This is a variation of a salad that my mother thaught me to make. She in turn, got the recipe from a French cookbook. I modified the recipe by substituting home made mayonnaise with low fat mayonaise and adding dijon mustard. My mother used to serve it stuffed in a large tomato, but for the sake of economy, I just serve it with sliced tomatoes.

Very Good (1 rating)
French lentil-brown rice medley

medley of lentils and brown rice cooked in chicken broth. Can be made vegetarian by substituting vegetable stock for chicken broth.

Swiss Chard torte with goat cheese

This recipe takes a little bit of time, but first few steps can be prepared ahead of time.

* If using mature swiss chard, separate stalk from base of leaf and chop and steam stalk for a few minutes until slightly tender. (I precooked mine in microwave steamer).

Multi-grain French toast

Using a hearty multi-grain gives this French toast lots of texture and is very filling. I topped mine with a berry sauce which I made with 1 cup of berries and a little honey to sweeten.
