Mom's Lasagna Made Easy
...and a bit healthier. My fabulous mom [gladly] gave up cooking when I took over the kitchen. I was more than happy to do all the cooking, but still craved her weekly rotation of dinners: homemade chicken tenders, breaded steaks, spinach gratin, mashed potatoes, fried plantains, and her lasagna.
Carrot Coconut Flan
Here's the SKINNY on this dessert: if my math is right, one serving has about 80 calories! Yup, 80 - and they're guilt free! That's because I did away with the traditional recipe and came up with a light, healthy and super yummy version. Don't be intimidated: flan isn't as hard as it looks!
"FIT" Chocolate Chip Cookies
It was with the biggest of chocolate chip cookie cravings that I swapped a few ingredients to make a healthier cookie that I wouldn't feel too guilty about. Five cookies later, maybe it wasn't the best of ideas. I'm told these are way good!
