A quick, nutritious, low-fat recipe that's inexpensive to make, yet has a ton of flavor. The medley of beans pairs nicely with the wild rice. Serve with a loaf of fresh bread and you're in heaven!
Chilled coconut milk and honeydew with an infusion of mint and melon liqueur makes a delightful start to a meal. Served in a chilled small soup cup and garnished with a sprig of peppermint. Every time it gets wows! Volume varies with the size of the melon. I use 5-ounce servings.
This is a recipe direct from my Irish/Welsh ancestors. Keep in mind, sugar and other ingredients were hard to come by before the early 1900's.
A Mexican style coleslaw that is great served with chips or as a condiment.
This is a delicious diabetic and diet-friendly recipe for quiche. I created the recipe for two servings for my wife Laura and me. I put it together on Saturday evenings; cover each bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate. When I get up on Sunday morning, I let Laura sleep in while I make the coffee and put the quiches in the oven. We love the crusty texture that is created on the outside edges when cooked in the Pyrex bowls. The inside stays moist and tender.
I have boiled, roasted and grilled more tomatoes, peppers and garlic trying to find the perfect salsa I get my favorite Mexican restaurant. While I came up with some pretty good salsas, this is finally it. The color and consistency tipped me off as to where I was going astray. And while I had to move away from the fresh tomatoes, it was worth it.
This is a quick easy soup recipe that has been in the family for years.
Do not know why she called it Chopped Pickles, no pickles in it, but this is good!
Persimmon, radish and cucumber stud this tasty salad of salted napa cabbage, onion, and fresh ginger.

If you're looking for the simple one pan dinner, please keep looking. This meal requires many pans and really gets things hopping in the kitchen. It's a great meal to make with family or friends. This is a wonderful, low fat curry dish with a slight sweetness. It is a delightful meal for those who love curry!
I created this recipe today, combining aspects from similar recipes I had seen on Allrecipes and elsewhere ... and accommodating the contents of my larder. If you like cauliflower, this is a great fall/winter warm-you-up. Portions are an estimate, but it made a small vat of really aromatic soup. Enjoy!
My Mom's sauce was handed down to her by my Nona (Grandma). It has been in the family forever and now I give it to you. This sauce is the best you will ever taste and the easiest you will ever make. I hope you like it.
I'm tired of store-bought non-fat salad dressing. What the heck is guar gum?! This recipe uses refrigerator and pantry ingredients for a good, clean dressing that is non-fat but packed with flavor. Especially great for seafood salads.
As far as organ meat goes, heart is probably some of the most tame you can try. When I first had this, I honestly thought it was an elk roast, or perhaps moose. It was that good! Bear in mind that it is a very low-fat cut, so over cooking will dry it out quickly. This is one I have made a few times for a Sunday roast. When I didn't tell people what it was, they assumed it was just a beef or venison roast!
This a great summertime salad that I discovered while trying to be fat-free for my Doctor. Yeah right.. Anyways I had to make a side salad for a barbecue and this is what I made.. Tastes great even in the fat-free version.
This salsa can be made by anyone that owns a decent knife & a cutting board. You don't need to know a thing about cooking, just know how to chop. I've had just 4 people eat the entire batch, it was so good. It tastes even better the next day!
A lighter version of a true Texas-style chili.
