Hungarian Goulash

When I was a little girl, nothing seemed colder than a Pittsburgh winter. After school, I would burst through my Granny’s kitchen door, tear off my snow-covered, slushy boots, and inhale the warm perfume of meat stewing in a tomato paprika sauce. This Hungarian goulash is based on my family’s recipe that I enhanced with the addition of sweet, caramelized onions.

Tuna Noodle Skillet

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

Chicken Saltimbocca

I call this ‘jump in your mouth’ chicken, since that’s the meaning of Salta-in-bocca! It has jumped into quite a few mouths since I started cooking it. This low-fat version is as delicious as the full-fat one since it’s flavored with fresh sage and prosciutto and it has become a favorite among private chef clients.

Chicken and Vegetable Stir-fry

Most kids love eating take-out Chinese from those neat paper cartons. Here’s a heart-healthy version you can prepare at home that still has that great savory flavor! Take out the chicken to make this vegetarian.

Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad

I love the tart and tangy flavors of the traditional Caesar Salad. My version still has all the flavor minus the fat you’ll find in most restaurant or store-bought Caesars! Leftovers make a perfect quick and healthy office lunch.

Creamy Low-fat Asparagus Soup

In the spring, my husband and I both crave asparagus. Oddly enough, both of our hometowns were famous for asparagus growing at one point in history. This soup looks just like cream of asparagus and feels rich on the taste buds but is in fact really light on the hips!

Chicken with Garam Masala

Nothing is more fragrant than homemade Indian food cooked with healthy spices! If you can’t find Garam Masala, substitute with your favorite curry powder.
