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.

Banana Bread

Almost everyone I know loves banana bread. This low-fat version is great for breakfast or to pack in your lunch for a healthy afternoon treat. Use oat flour instead of all purpose white flour to make it heart healthy!

Don Juan Olgado’s Birthday Cake

This traditional South American cake is especially popular for birthday celebrations. I love dulce de leche, a rich, gooey milk caramel sauce that just happens to be low in fat. Try dipping wedges of crispy apple for a sweet low-fat snack. You can purchase dulce de leche in a store that carries Latino groceries or make it yourself – see my dulce de leche recipe.

Shallot Dressing with Greens

Shallots are a sweet and mild, the perfect substitution for garlic or onions. This dressing keeps well over night in an air-tight container

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!

Fudge with Pecans

Every family has a favorite fudge recipe. This fudge still has that chocolately, rich smoothness but is much lower in saturated fat and a snap to make, no candy thermometer necessary.

Artichoke Dip

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