Chicken Paprikash

A family favorite, chicken paprikash is a creamy Hungarian stew that my granny excelled at preparing. Her chicken was moist and delicate, so be gentle when cooking your bird and never let the pot come to a full boil!

Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

Butternut squash has a naturally, creamy consistency that blends into a thick and hearty soup without adding excess fat or cream. Make it fun for kids by topping it with plain, unbuttered popcorn!

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.

Tuna Fish Salad

I’m always looking for a quick, protein-packed lunch when I’m on the run. Skip your office or school cafeteria food and stuff this healthy salad in a whole wheat pita and add sprouts.

Gazpacho with Shrimp

Soup fights hunger because it’s filling and low in calories. This is the perfect summer/spring soup made in a blender. Fresh and light, gazpacho can be packed for lunch in a thermos, for an impromptu picnic or even for a day on the beach. Add cooked shrimp to round it out for a fast, late-night dinner when you don’t have time to cook.
