Tangy Citrus Cole Slaw

"This is a dairy-free slaw. Very refreshing for a hot summer day. I serve this with Carnitas, black beans and rice. It is a nice counterpoint to the rich meat. Made this one up myself..."

  1. This was light and fresh. I made mini meatloaves and this was such a great accompanyment to a summer meal. I did not have the serrano chili so made it without. Even my kids ate seconds. Thanks.


I read cookbooks like they are novels. I would be hard pressed to pick a favorite, but I love all of Nigella Lawson and Jamie Oliver's books as well as the Best American Recipe series. The book that I couldn't live without though, is the one I started in a notebook at age 15 while I was an exchange student in New Zealand. I am a research fanatic, and have to review at least five recipes for a dish before I decide which one to use. More often than not, I use elements from multiple recipes. My husband and I welcomed a little girl in December of 2006, and I am having a great time making her baby food. I am looking forward to teaching her how to cook and love food as much as I do. I have lost about 50 pounds since giving birth (gained 20 with the pregnancy) and feel very fortunate that this is the case - especially since I have not been working on if very diligently. My weight loss and my daughter have inspired me to try and eat in a healthier way, by using fewer processed ingredients and more whole foods. I am opposed to artificial ingredients such as Splenda. I am a Flight Attendant by profession (which is where sassySTEW comes in - although it could also apply to cooking). I do event coordinating and some catering on the side. <a href="http://photobucket.com" target="_blank"><img src="http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b161/tisht/freezer.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"></a> <a href="http://s7.photobucket.com/albums/y254/Missymop/?action=view&current=newtaginethbanner.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y254/Missymop/newtaginethbanner.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/IWasAdoptedfall08.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket">
