How To Cook Pork Roast So It Stays Juicy

Pork loin is lean, tender, and easy to cook. Because it’s low in fat most people have tendency to overcook it, so I want to share how professional chefs deal with this problem. Plus, this dish is also delicious cold – so make a double portion for sandwiches or a quick dinner served with salad…

Double Chocolate Zucchini Brownies

My granny always had so much leftover zucchini in her garden, it was a challenge to use it all. Zucchini is very high in water and fiber content. It’s the perfect way to moisten brownies without adding extra fat and get extra fiber in your diet … and this recipe is consistently among the most downloaded ones here on SkinnyChef.com

Brown Sugar Ice Cream

I’m always on the hunt to find ways to use leftovers. This is the prefect way to treat your family to a frozen dessert and pump up the servings of whole grains at the same time.

Pickled Cucumber Salad

This cucumber salad gets its name from the apple cider vinegar. It lends a sweet and sour tang to this dish that reminds me of fresh pickles. Cucumber salad also makes a great topping for your turkey burger or salmon cakes in place of pickle relish.

Fish Fingers

I created this recipe since that little people will find fish more appealing! Many parents aren’t sure how to cook fish and this recipe not only makes it easy, but is a big hit with kids. I noticed that the frozen fish stick are usually loaded with trans-fat and other unwanted preservative – things that don’t help little bodies grow strong.

Skinny Chef Recipes That Kids Love

Cooking healthy meals for kids might seem like a challenge, but building a recipe collection of go-to meals can mean food that everyone will eat and a whole less stress. Once you arm yourself with these easy kid-friendly recipes that I’ve tested on many clients, friends, and family members with picky kids, your worries will be over. Guaranteed.

Quinoa Risotto

Risotto is prized for its creamy texture and rich taste. Quinoa is naturally creamy and makes a lighter, whole grain version of this popular Italian comfort food. Spinach adds extra nutrition and flavor.

Orange Sherbet

This healthy version of orange sherbet reminds me of the ‘push-up’ pops I used to have as a kid that were filled with creamy sherbet, refreshingly cool during the hot summer months.
