Sweetheart Cupcakes

Make these cupcakes for your loved ones to help protect their heart. The oat flour helps to control cholesterol and beets have antioxidants to protect arteries. Give them a sweet treat that you can feel good about.

Hungarian Nut Roll

Hungarian nut roll is one of my family’s most treasured recipes – but this version has less fat since it’s made with skim milk and low-fat margarine. Fresh yeast is usually found in the dairy section, but you can substitute with 2 (.04 ounce) packets of dry yeast

Pizza Dough

I’ve tested so many different pizza dough recipes and this one is a combination of them. A great pizza has a crispy outer crust with a soft textured dough on the inside, baked perfectly in the hottest of ovens. If your oven doesn’t go up to 500° F or higher, I suggest purchasing an inexpensive pizza stone. Use your creativity to top this tasty crust. If you are using meats, seafood, or dense vegetables, pre-cook them before topping your pizza.

Leek Quiche

I tasted this elegant, rich quiche while traveling in France. I’ve lightened this version by substituting with some low-fat dairy products. It’s a healthier option for celebrations or holidays and if you need a change from the traditional Thanksgiving dishes, this is a great substitution.

Concord Grape Pie

This is one of the most unique family recipes I have. I’ve never seen or tasted it anywhere except for in my Granny’s kitchen. My granny had a small grape arbor, covered with concord grapes and fuzzy yellow bumble bees that were attracted to the honeyed scent. Every September she would pick the grapes to make jams, juice, and pies. When I serve it, people think it’s blueberry pie but are really surprised by the intoxicating grapey first bite!

Cranberry Orange Muffins

Sweet oranges and tart cranberries are a pretty pair! I always keep a bag of cranberries in my freezer year-round since they disappear from the produce isle after the winter holidays.

Roasted Lemon Thyme Chicken

Use the left-over lemon rinds and a handful of herbs to stuff your chicken. The meat will capture the aroma of fresh herbs without all the extra work of chopping herbs for basting.

Tuna Noodle Skillet

A perfect after-school meal for hungry kids. Clean-up is easy, then it’s time for homework!
