Quinoa Tabbouleh in Lettuce Cups

This is a simply delicious way to add a tangy antioxidant punch to a Summer BBQ. Parsley and tomatoes are loaded with antioxidants and fiber.

Grilled Cheese Anyone?

Halloumi cheese is a firm sheep cheese that has a tangy, salty taste like feta with a sheepy flavor. It holds its shape while grilling and even browns well. Trader Joes carries it sometimes and it’s worth seeking out. I grilled the cheese slices until browned and served them over micro greens and kale with…

Creamy Lemon Kale Salad & Ranting About Apple IOS 8

Asparagus Chèvre Quiche

Asparagus is in season! Nestle these lovely gems in a thyme scented chèvre custard for a slice of heaven. This isn’t a low fat recipe but it’s packed with protein and looks impressive at a brunch or on the dinner table. Serve with fresh seasonal fruit and a side of fresh snow peas or greens….

Arugula Pesto Stuffed Portobello

My husband and I have a standing joke about vegetarian meals. I usually will ask for a vegetarian meal at medical meetings or awards dinners when my only other choice is beef. The joke is that 90% of the time the main vegetarian dish will be a portobello mushroom. Apparently the chefs can’t see past…
