    I recently went apple picking and was so overexcited about picking that I ended up with 18 pounds of apples. That’s a lot of pie! To try something different, I made these muffins. The recipe is slightly modified from the South Beach Diet Cookbook. They aren’t overly sweet, so I like to toast them up and add some margarine.

    Recipe #437925

    This is a really easy BBQ sauce that comes together in just a few minutes. It's a perfect balance of tangy and sweet and can be used on anything from ribs to chicken fingers.

    Recipe #433377

    This is adapted from a recipe Emeril made on his show Emeril Green. Marinating the Portobello caps really boosts the mushroom flavor. The tangy lemon mayo sauce balances the richness of the blue cheese. Grilled red onion adds just enough sweetness and crunch. This is a great vegetarian alternative to the standard veggie patty.

    Recipe #432918

    This is a light, refreshing salad I created to cope with the summer heat. I really like the combination of tart grapefruit with buttery avocado and crunchy almonds. The shrimp adds enough protein for this to be considered a meal. Since it's summer, I tossed the shrimp on the grill for an added smoky flavor, but shrimp sautéed in a little olive oil would be just as delicious. The dressing is very light and just enough to tie the whole salad together. My grapefruit was fairly sweet, but if yours are too tart, you can always add a little honey to the dressing.

    Recipe #432287

    I came up with this marinade from ingredients I already had in the house. Marinating meat is a great way to pack in a lot of flavor without adding too many additional calories. Be sure to cut skirt steak against the grain for tender slices. Since it's a fairly fatty cut, I served this with some simple roasted carrots to keep the meal light and summery.

    Recipe #431149

    My husband is completely addicted to pies. Unfortunately, it's a little hard to have a whole pie hanging around the house with only two people to eat it. Here's a lighter alternative to a traditional fruit pie. Berries are the best choice for low-carb diets. On top of being low in sugar, they are rich in vitamins and antioxidants.

    Recipe #429893

    I adapted this recipe from Food & Wine Magazine to lighten it up a bit. Adding a little oil to the patties kept them nice and moist. The satay-style peanut sauce adds a spicy kick. Since ground chicken can be fairly bland on its own, this was an extremely flavorful way to punch it up.

    Recipe #429733

    This recipe is from Martha Stewart's Baking Handbook. I was looking for a lighter muffin recipe to try and stumbled across this one online. The zucchini keeps the muffins extremely moist without having to add a whole lot of oil. The cranberries pop in the oven and add a sour, gooeyness that I just love. If fresh cranberries aren't in season, the frozen ones work just fine.

    Recipe #429021

    This recipe is courtesy of my Mother-in-law. It's the easiest, most delicious crock pot recipe ever. Normally I shy away from canned ingredients, but the sofrito has so much flavor, it really doesn't need anything else. I serve the chops with a side of brown rice.

    Recipe #427250

    It's really hard for people who have to limit sugar and carbohydrates in their diet to find interesting snacks to munch on. Nuts and cheese are easily overused when you need to eat a protein based snack every few hours. In my experience, food boredom usually equals diet failure. Roasted chick peas take on the crunchy texture of roasted peanuts and you can spice them however you like. My take on the snack vaguely resembles the taste of Cajun French fries.

    Recipe #426630

    This yogurt is a salute to Red Mango. It isn't pretending to be ice cream. It tastes like tangy yogurt in frozen form. The result is creamy and completely refreshing without guilt. I opted for 2% to make sure the yogurt had the right consistency and didn't turn icy. I paired it with a slice of grilled pineapple and some homemade granola (Recipe #424610 ) for a healthy sundae.

    Recipe #424886

    Granola is inherently thought of as "health food" but when you flip over the bag and read the nutritional info, it can actually be very high in calories. This is my slimmed-down version. I use sugar-free maple syrup since that's all I keep in the house, but regular maple syrup would work perfectly fine. Sprinkle the finished product on ice cream, fresh fruit or yogurt.

    Recipe #424610

    Although avocados are full of "good" monounsaturated fats, they do pack on about 30 grams of fat per medium-sized fruit. That's an awful lot of overall calories for a small amount of food. I've used only one avocado in this guacamole recipe and swapped out the rest for small white beans. You really can't taste the difference! You can still enjoy the taste and health benefits of avocados without overdoing the caloric intake. I'm serving mine here with homemade cumin-dusted whole wheat chips.

    Recipe #422798

    In honor of Cinco de Mayo, I'm offering up my own spin on Huevos Rancheros. This is a lightened-up version that's great for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The fresh salsa is a refreshing alternative and really brightens up an otherwise heavy dish.

    Recipe #421971

    This is a great little side dish for a BBQ and much healthier than the typical mayo-based macaroni salad. Olive Oil is packed with mono-unsaturated (good fats) and can help to achieve balanced cholesterol levels. I usually serve this at room temperature, but I've also served it hot and topped it with grilled chicken for a quick weeknight dinner.

    Recipe #421785

    There's a time and place for pickled beets, but I prefer the effects of roasting them. They turn soft and buttery and form a nice backdrop for a salad. The peppery arugula and creamy goat cheese work well with beets and walnuts add the perfect amount of crunch. I served this salad alongside a grilled steak. It was the perfect, fresh side dish.

    Recipe #420222

    The inspiration for this dessert came from a Ralph's Famous Italian Ices flavor called Coconut Raspberry Tart. My husband came home from the Italian ice stand and raved about the flavor so much, we decided to recreate the same idea in pie form. I love coconut cream pie, but the typical buttery crust and rich custard are entirely too heavy for a health-conscious diet. This version is lighter and fluffier, but most importantly, equally as delicious. The raspberry layer adds the perfect tart element to balance out the sweetness of the filling. * PLEASE NOTE: the measurements in this recipe are for a mini 7" pie pan (serves 4). For a standard 9" pie pan, simply double the recipe (serves 8).

    Recipe #420073

    This is my own recipe for sausage & peppers. Using turkey sausage as opposed to pork can save up to half the amount of fat as the original dish. I use a splash of my own homemade pasta sauce for an extra flavor boost, but you can easily substitute straight-up tomato sauce.

    Recipe #418075

    I'm sure there are French chefs out there with rather strong opinions as to what classifies as a Bouillabaisse. I'm certainly no French chef. I was looking for a healthy way to enjoy seafood. Since its winter here in NY, a piece of grilled fish just didn't seem hearty enough to do the trick. My mom gave me a few different recipes that I pieced together to create my own version of this delicious fish stew. Feel free to substitute the seafood for whatever looks fresh at the market that day.

    Recipe #415088

    I lightened up this chicken salad by using fat free yogurt in place of half the mayo. I stick with regular mayo as opposed to light mayo. The light stuff has half the calories as the original, but it loads up on artificial ingredients and thickeners to counteract the loss of calories. Plus, it just tastes strange. I like the salad on a whole wheat bun, but you could just scoop it on a bed of lettuce to cut back on carbs.
