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.
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.
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!
These are super delicious, very filling burritos. Great for breakfast, or more often in my household, dinner! In my opinion, charring the tortilla over the burner makes the recipe, it adds a smoky depth that really brings out the flavor of the tortilla.
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.
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
This is a recipe I adapted from Lex Culinaria (http://gorgeoustown.typepad.com/lex_culinaria/). It truly is a light, low carb, delicious summer dinner. I like to serve it with a wilted spinach salad and bacon vinaigrette.
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!
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.
