I've loved escargot as long as I can remember. Even though it's quite difficult to get some to even try it, this recipe has changed more minds about snails than any other I've used. Beware, this is in no way a low fat recipe!
This is a recipe I got from iVillage. They are delicious! Plus baking tomatoes doesn't only make them scrumptious, it also brings out those healthy lycopenes and helps you absorb them more efficiently.
I learned this recipe from a friend in Louisiana, it's been a favorite in my house since day one! I've changed it some over the years so I know it's not a traditional recipe, hence the Creole "Style" title! I usually serve it up with some cornbread muffins and sweet tea. Delicious!
A fat free version of artichoke dip that claims to taste as great as a the full fat dip we all love. I found this recipe on Yahoo Food and wanted to save it to try it later. I think when I try it I'll had some spinach too.
This is an original recipe by Thomas Keller posted on GastroChick.com. This soup is so amazing I could never take credit for it. So many recipes for French Onion soup skimp on the time to caramelize the onions, but the lengthy caramelization is what provides that amazing depth in a loving, patiently prepared, French Onion Soup. I hope you enjoy this as much as I have.
Note from GastroChick:
Keep an eye on your onions when cooking, if you notice there is too much liquid in the pan turn up the heat and make sure you dry them out a little otherwise they will boil instead of caramelize.
As my name depicts, I'm a huge proponent of heirloom variety fruits and vegetables. This is one of my favorite ways to enjoy these lovely, unique fruits. As soon as they come back into season I'll post a photo of this beautiful salad.
I found this recipe on a charming food blog called The Bitten Word, I highly recommend it - both the pudding and the blog! It's a nice, low fat but satisfying pudding. Coupled with artfully arranged sliced nectarines (or any delicious fruit) it makes a beautiful light summer dessert. If you do refrigerate the pudding be sure to give it a nice whip before serving, it gets very thick!
Collard greens are very high in fiber, thiamin, niacin, Vitamins A, C, E, and K, folate, potassium, calcium and manganese. Unfortunately, when they're cooked with salt pork, lard, or other fats the nutritional content just flies out the window. This is my lower fat version.
Perfect for those cold winter nights. If you're looking to spice things up a little bit more, adding spiced rum is fantastic. I've done it with both juice made from concentrate and fresh apple juice and both are delicious
