Simply Perfect Scones

Simply Perfect Scones

I had a really great food experience last Sunday. I woke up at 7:30, attended church at 9, and entertained friends for brunch at 10:45. Brunch included warm, quiche-like breakfast casserole, lemony-dressed mixed greens, and warm-from-the-oven scones. It probably seemed like I’d been slaving all morning, but I was cool as a cucumber as...

Orange Sesame Chicken and Noodles

Orange Sesame Chicken and Noodles

I love 30 minute “all in one bowl” dinners for weeknights, especially ones that lack arbitrary ingredients. Sesame seeds are the most random here and they’re easy to throw on the grocery list. This one is light and healthy PLUS my 2 year old daughter devoured it. Even when noodles taste Asian she gobbles...

Oatmeal, Date and White Chocolate Cookies

Oatmeal, Date and White Chocolate Cookies

Truly, I blame some of my cooking/baking addiction with two things. 1, my kitchen TV. Sometimes a girl has got to mentally switch off, and nothing does it for me like a little tube. I could sit in the living room and watch OR I could watch in the kitchen, and end the sesh...

Light Banana Pudding Parfait

Light Banana Pudding Parfait

I wrote a post, I think still on this site, for banana cream pudding using packaged jello pudding mix and Nilla wafers. It was one we used in the school kitchens. So good. So full of preservatives and other unreadable ingredients. Here’s a more fresh, natural and low-cal take on the old favorite.

White Bean Tuna Salad

White Bean Tuna Salad

When you read the title on this post, I hope you didn’t imagine the typical mayo-drenched  tuna salad you begged your mom not to pack for your school lunch. This is really more of a bean salad that contains tuna and fresh veggies—one loaded with protein, vitamin C and iron, at that.

Everything Bagel Chips

Everything Bagel Chips

Do you ever feel like you’re just sick of spending money? Not on fun things, like clothes at Target, but rather annoyingly expensive things like gas, food, and heat? This annoyance sparked the notion of a pantry cleanse, which let to these bagel chips (in case you find it difficult to follow my train...

Glazed Cinnamon Chip Mini Scones

Glazed Cinnamon Chip Mini Scones

Before I laud the absolute deliciousness of this naughty scone, I need to talk about it’s appropriateness. In my life of trying to make the right choice 80% of the time and splurging 20%, this scone falls into the 3%. I haven’t made a scone in months – but when occasion called, I refused...

Fried Dough – Zeppole

Fried Dough – Zeppole

Remember how I mentioned this week about our Seven Fish dinner? You’d think the star of the show would be the sauce full of seafood that simmers for hours: well not in my book. My cousins and I used to steal these from my Mom-mom, fresh from the oil, and tear into them with...

Low-Cal Caramelized Pear Parfait with Greek Yogurt-Maple Cream

Low-Cal Caramelized Pear Parfait with Greek Yogurt-Maple Cream

My Grower’s market lately is as depressing as this weather. Too many cauliflower and not enough fruit. Granted my state of pregnancy has changed my tastes in that quesadillas with American cheese is all I want to eat for every meal, but still. One fruit that’s hanging around and often overlooked? Pears! Sure, they’re...
