Filet of Sole

Just whipped up a very quick meal for a friend. He exclaimed, "The spinach is tasty." He enjoyed the filet of sole too, "The fish is so good the way you prepared it."...more

Quick 'n' Easy HOT! rice, shrimp, spinach

I have done a good job getting back to my regular diet since the Thanksgiving feast gorge fest. December 8, I created this hot and very delicious meal for my lunch: spinach, wild rice, egg, onion, and shrimp sauteed in garlic and hot chili oil. This dish is full of heat! The rice helps temper the heat....more

Best Ever Spinach & Feta Börek!

Nancy Anne HarbordThis is, without a doubt, the best börek I have ever eaten, anywhere. Either from my own fair hands or from someone else’s. I am frankly embarrassed at what I have served people in the past under the name of “börek”. Sorry about that!...more

Roasted Artichoke & Spinach Dip

There's a bazillion spinach dip or artichoke dip recipes on the internet.  Some have mayo & cheese, some have cream cheese, some have crab, some have sour cream.  But most of them have one thing in common: the artichokes are added straight from the can or package.   When you roast any vegetable you bring out SOOOOOO much more flavor....more

Play Dates

A lot of times when the boys have friends over they want it to be a “dinner” play date. As I am cooking for three anyway, I usually don't mind, what is one or two more. But since all play dates are not created equal, there are times the night doesn’t always end as planned....more

Spinach Ravioli

I usually have an idea in my head about what my next recipe will be (and it's always a really, really long list).  But, from time to time, I solicit suggestions from my family and listen to what they would like to see on the blog next (and by blog, I mean dinner table).  This recipe was the suggestion of Real Food Jr.  She loves raviolis and spinach so I figured this would be a no lose recipe.  And I was right!  She loved the raviolis and the rest of us did too!  You could pour marinara sauce on top or dip them.  It took some time to pu...more

Spinach & Feta Stuffed Chicken Breast

This recipe turned out so well that we ate half of one as an appetizer before dinner was even ready!  Besides spinach & feta, it also features goat cheese, pine nuts, and roasted red peppers.  Yum! Life's too short to eat crappy food.  :-)

Skinny BBQ Chicken Pizza

I love pizza!  Unfortunately, this mouthwatering pie that has become an American favorite is not the healthiest or most diet friendly meal.  Many times the ingredients on top of the pizza aren’t too bad for you (if the cheese isn’t overdone), its the crust that adds many unwanted calories.  So why not make a crust that tastes good, but is healthy, as well?  I’m always looking for ways to try to eat more super foods.  Knowing that Spinach is one of them, it has become a huge part of my diet…so why not make a pizza crust out of it?  Here’s a pizza pie to enjoy th...more
