Tomato Salad with Goat Cheese and Roasted Pepper

Need your vitamin C? Look no further, between fresh tomatoes and red bell pepper you’re getting a huge helping of vitamin C with a this sweet and savory salad. Fresh goat cheese adds a note of creaminess without too much fat.

Orange Spiced Tea

During cold winter evenings, my granny would gather a knitted blanket onto to her lap and sip her favorite tea. The odor of orange punctutated by the dark musk of cloves would fill our small living room as she siped, slowly turning the pages of her latest travel book. My version of her favorite tea has cinnamon for added spice and flavor.

Cherry Almond Muffins

If fresh cherries are out of your budget or out of season, the frozen version will work just as well! Cherries are a good source of antioxidants and they plump nicely when baked in muffins.

German Spice Cake

German’s are famous for their gingerbread and this cake is my moist version using the same spices that make the cookies so flavorful. Serve this at your next winter celebration with mulled hot spiced tea.

Yucca Home Fries

Yucca Root or Cassava is a waxy root that grows in Southern America, Mexico, and the Caribbean. Some studies say that yucca is a powerful anti-inflammatory, and helps to ease arthritis pain, but I love it since it’s high in fiber, crucial for intestinal health.

Devil’s Food Cake

This cake might seem like the devil’s work, but the ingredients are angelically light! Indulge yourself with this not-so-naughty chocolate cake!

Artichoke Dip

This is my favorite college party dip gone skinny! I bring it to the neighbors for movie night with toasted pita chips.

Spinach and Goat Cheese Triangles

These are similar to the spanakopita that my Greek neighbors in Pittsburgh used to make for parties, weddings, and graduations. I use goat cheese instead of feta, because I love its creamy texture and tart flavor. I substituted melted butter for butter-flavored cooking spray to achieve the ‘skinny effect’.
