What to do with that Sunday ham bone? In the winter, split yellow pea soup, yes! But in the spring? Too heavy! Here is a quickie recipe that features two of earth's most giving foods: kale and beans.  We need to get both into our diets as often as possible ...

Tuesday 19 April 2011 . (0)

Big family meals call for double duty dishes that save time and effort.  I love this method of making mashed potatoes because it not only nets the most nourishing, sweet mash around, but also eliminates peeling time. As a bonus, you get 12 potato skins that can be filled with cheese and baked as a. Continue Reading…

Vidalia Onion and Carrot Salad

Monday 18 April 2011 . (1)

This salad is wonderful made ahead up to 2 days and it adds such a bright color to the table that it gets a center spot! I rarely peel carrots, a good scrub with a clean scrubber will do and if I have kids around, I pawn off the job of grating to them. Serving. Continue Reading…

I have used this recipe with canned pumpkin or leftover squash and they each have their highlights. Either way, they taste like pumpkin pie for dinner.  Try going with mascarpone cheese and demerara sugar instead of the usual  maple syrup.  And don’t wait for Pancake Tuesday! Serves 4 Prep time: 20-25 minutes 1 cup cooked. Continue Reading…

Any variety of  leftover cooked squash can be turned into outstanding soup in a heartbeat.  The beautiful part of this soup is that it is tasty, filling and clocks in at about 200 calories per bowl which is perfect for those “I just can’t stop eating” days!

Substituting baked squash for rice or potatoes is a great way to lower the carb and calories of any meal.  Squash is lower on the Glycemic Index scale as well so you won’t have a surge of insulin to deal with either (unless you have baklava for dessert…don’t do it!) Serving Size  : 4  +. Continue Reading…
