Grilled Eggplant with Miso Dressing

Miso is a savory fermented paste made from soy beans, rice or barley. There are many different varieties on the market, ranging from light to dark, depending on how long they are aged. Look out for the low-sodium variety, since this thick, peanut butter looking paste can be quite salty.

Spinach Strawberry Salad with Poppy Seed Dressing

Sweet and tangy poppy seed dressing works with any salad but is especially good with summer ripe strawberries and nutrient-packed spinach. Ideal for an outdoor summer or late spring brunch.

Chocolate Sorbet

Low in fat but high in cocoa powder, this bittersweet chocolate sorbet is for true chocolate lovers only. Spread it between two low-fat grahams to make it into an ice cream sandwich.

Buttermilk Ice Cream

Buttermilk is one of my favorite things to use in the kitchen. It has a strong, cheesy taste if you drink it from the carton, but turns magically into a rich lemony cool treat when frozen.

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.

Cherry Peppers Stuffed with Mozzarella and Basil

I love the sweet and hot flavor of pickled cherry peppers, ideal for preparing quick and tasty appetizers. You can find them in the deli case of most grocery stores or in a specialty Italian deli. They are great to have on hand to enliven salads, sliced into steamed broccoli and cauliflower or to tuck into a hearty sandwich.

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.
