Cherry Upside-Down Cake

As a kid, I hated upside down cakes covered with masses of sticky glazed pineapple. Feared by many, it always popped up on buffet tables at family gatherings. I’ve never been a big fan of canned fruit since, so my upside down version is made with a thick, rich homemade filling of fresh cherries that is simple and superb.

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

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.

Citrus Almond Chicken

Citrus goes great with this crunchy, quick to make chicken cutlet coated with heart-healthy almonds. Marinate the chicken overnight in fresh lemon juice to get the best results…

Parchment-Wrapped Fish

Parchment paper sounds fancy, but it’s really just paper you can use in baking. I use it to construct a little paper bag to make an ultra healthy, super fast fish bake that is a tradition in French cuisine. You can always use aluminum foil in its place, however fish always tastes better to me cooked in parchment.

Orange Beet Mimosa

Orange juice makes everything sweet and sunny. Beets add jewel-like color as well as added nutrition to this classic brunch drink.

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.
