Low Fat Poppy Seed Dressing with Spinach Strawberry Salad

Sweet and tangy poppy seed dressing works with any salad but is especially good with summer ripe strawberries and nutrient-packed spinach. Ideal for an outdoor summer or late spring brunch.

Mac and Cheese

An American classic that hits the waistline and hips pretty hard! My version softens the blow of cheese by mixing in non-fat cream cheese and parmesan.

Pear Hazelnut Muffin

Pears are plentiful in the fall. If you happen to have a few bruised pears at the bottom of your fruit bowl, this is a great way to rescue them! If you don’t have hazelnuts, almonds work just as well. I store all my nuts in the freezer to keep them from becoming rancid.

Mexican Wedding Cookies

Powered sugar coat these cookies baked with walnuts. Instead of white flour, I use whole grain flour, for a healthier twist. If you happen to have peanuts in the kitchen, they work just as well in place of walnuts.
