Healthy 8-Veggie Superfood Soup

When January arrives, I think most of us, at some point, even if it’s just vaguely in the back of our minds, resolve to try to adopt some healthier habits for the new year. Which is ironic because January seems to be the month least favorable for good health, in…

Skinny Gingerbread Cupcakes with Sweet Cinnamon Glaze

These cupcakes are heavenly. I got them wrong a few times – I tried them with a low-fat cream cheese frosting, which was way too heavy for my taste and just didn’t work. But then I tried a light, sugary sweet glaze with cinnamon and almond extract. Wonder of wonders.…

One-Dish Dijon-Herb Roast Chicken with Root Vegetables

One-dish chicken recipes are really the best of both worlds. A one-dish chicken recipe is a hearty, healthy, delicious, comforting, meal that can please a crowd. Plus, preparing a complete meal in one pot means it’s simple whip together, with quick and easy clean-up (hardly any dishes to wash!) What I love…

“Cinnamon Bun” Apple Tartlets

Good news and bad. Bad News: I completely failed in my mission to create a Healthy Cinnamon Bun that still tasted like an actual cinnamon bun. The problem is that an actual cinnamon bun really seems to be nothing without tons of butter and lots and lots of sugar. Let’s…

Healthier Risotto with Shrimp, Butternut Squash, and Parmesan

Risotto is one of my all-time favorite dishes for all the following reasons: white rice slowly cooked in white wine, lots of butter, and lots of Parmesan cheese. But it’s also a once-in-a-great-while treat, mainly because of all the high calorie and not-so-healthy reasons listed above. So I’ve spent some…

Four-Cheese White Lasagna with Chicken and Kale

I’m amazed I managed to get this lasagna on the table this past weekend, what with all the Lifetime holiday movies that were showing. That’s right, I’m publicly admitting to my November through December addiction to sappy, cheesy, predictable holiday movies. (In case you also harbor a secret love for…

Skinny Sweet Potato Home Fries

I know sweet potato casseroles – usually made with lots of butter and marshmallows – are a sugary, super sweet American classic, especially around Thanksgiving. But I’ve never really liked syrupy, sugar-covered casseroles, so I’ve never cooked my sweet potatoes this way.  To me they taste like dessert, and I…
