Our office kissed summer Fridays goodbye last week, which makes Fall pretty official around here...95-degree weather and all. Here's a fun recipe I came up with over the Labor Day weekend to start September on a sweet note.
Ever since I got really into cooking, I’ve always made it a point to figure out the fastest way possible to make a dish. In fact, in looking through my recipe index, I think it’s safe to say most of my recipes can be made in as little as 15 minutes and most in no longer than one hour. If we’re talking about weeknight cooking, especially for those who have very little time to get a decent, healthy dinner on the table, I call that a win. Sometimes, though, isn’t it nice to just take it slow?
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!
NICE TO MEET YOU.
