Grilled Mango with Balsamic Glaze

Thanks to my friend Rob, you’ll be able to taste this unusual lip smacking combo. I added a pinch of chili for warmth and heat which breaks up the sweet punch of balsamic and mango.

Zucchini Fritters

Granny always had plenty of zucchini, and she would serve these fritters hot – but I like to prepare them ahead and offer them room temperature for a late morning brunch buffet.

Grapefruit Salsa

Salty olives and refreshing pink grapefruit make a summery salsa. Serve it with homemade crab cakes, salmon cakes, tortilla chips, or toasted whole wheat pita.

Eggplant Manicotti

Manicotti, which means “muff” in Italian, are idea for filling with cheesy ricotta. Slices of eggplant mimic this pasta-free way to enjoy the same flavors you’ll find in the original recipe. Adding kale to the filling boosts nutrition, lowers calories and fat.

Roasted Lemon Asparagus

Asparagus pokes through the cool dirt of early spring though it can be found in grocery stores year-round. Look for the thick stalks for this recipe, or if you are using pencil-thin asparagus decrease the cooking time by 2-3 minutes.

The Perfect Stuffing For Thanksgiving

In this video, find out how to pull off a “skinny” Thanksgiving stuffing with all the flavor and less fat. Even though Granny calls it stuffing, this Thanksgiving classic is baked outside the bird.

Kale Chips

Making kale chips is fast, easy, and cost effective. Any type of kale works, just be sure that your washed kale leaves are dry before adding olive oil for ultimate crisp chips!

Superfood Slimming Salad

Whether I’m looking for an energy boost, or a tasty unique meal, Superfoods always come to mind because they do both best.
