Cranberry-Orange Scones

The other morning I woke up in the mood to bake something for Jason and I for breakfast. It was the weekend so I figured that deserved a little something special. We are both suckers for breakfast pastries so I decided on these scones, knowing they were relatively healthy and wouldn't leave me in a sugar coma as my day was just beginning. ...more

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

Here is a figure and heart friendly recipe that lets you enjoy the chicken salad you love, without sacrificing your healthy diet: ...more

Put an Egg on It: Quinoa With Asparagus and a Fried Egg

Asparagus is one of those seasonal crops that people love partly because prime asparagus time is such a short window every year. Right now my stores have inexpensive asparagus, and if you love this spring vegetable, you need to be using it while the flavor is at its best. Luckily, asparagus doesn't need a fussy treatment to be spectacular. I think this simple Quinoa With Asparagus and a Fried Egg from Vintage Mixer sounds like a wonderful way to savor the flavor of asparagus, and it's a perfect Meatless Monday dish as well. ...more
