Roasted Carrots

Roast carrots are easy to make and taste good every time. If you can splurge on fresh herbs, it will be well worth it. 

Celery Apple Salad

Serves four as a side dish. With the addition of a protein, this could easily serve two as an entrée. Consider things like cold-cooked shrimp, shredded cooked chicken, or even cold sliced steak. Perfect for a warm day.

Veggie Stir Fry (EASY)

This colorful dish is super simple to make. You can include whatever assortment of veggies you like. I’ll give you a list of suggested options. You can serve this with something cooked on the grill; chicken, fish, or even steak.

Exotic Egg Salad

This is great as a light lunch time meal and a great holiday recipe. The juxtaposition of the sweeter apricots with the curry has the exotic taste I was looking for.

Cream of Mushroom Soup

A rich and easy cream of mushroom soup.

Sweet and Spicy Acorn Squash

I love my acorn squash roasted with just butter in the center and a sprinkle of sea salt and pepper. But I know tons of people want brown sugar in the middle and more. So this version can satisfy the sweet tooth and add an optional spice/heat factor.

Dauphinoise Potatoes (aka Potato Gratin)

Don’t let the name intimidate you.  This is a wonderful potato casserole from the southeast part of France.  Wonderful for holidays and dinner parties. 

Green Bean Casserole

Just like the one your mom made, only healthier. Everyone loves the green bean casserole. Here I'll show you one one that doesn't take much longer to make and it’s real food, not processed!

Sea Salt Crusted Snap Peas

A variation of my sea salt crusted snow peas recipe - but with snap peas!

Baked Spinach and Artichoke Dip

Talk about comfort food. This is the pure definition. Thankfully fat doesn’t make you fat so you can eat this at parties and not feel the guilt.

Grilled Eggplant Parmesan

A nice, summery meal that can also be eaten in cooler months. You can make this in a grill pan or on an outdoor grill.  This is much lighter and lower carb than the breaded and fried version.

Broccoli Cheese Soup

I designed this broccoli cheese soup for the average cook. It only takes a few minutes to chop the veggies and then put it in the pot and let the magic happen. All you have to do is stir it. How easy is that?

Celery Salad with Dried Fruit, Nuts and Parmesan

Well, of course I’m not the only one who every dreamed of a celery salad so I found all kinds of them and formulated my own, simple version. Turned out great.

Zucchini Fritters (or Pancakes)

Fried till golden using coconut flour.

Veggie Drawer Quiche

Everybody needs the perfect recipe that uses up the little leftover bits of vegetables you have in the drawer. Instead of letting them go to waste, you can whip up this quiche. I served it for dinner. You can serve it for breakfast, lunch or dinner! Some people even like it room temperature or cold.

Exotic Teriyaki Mushrooms

These mushrooms are a super side dish. Perfect for a quiet dinner for two. Or make a giant bowl and serve on a holiday.

Brown Butter-Sage Cream Sauce

Best served over ravioli; especially a pumpkin ravioli or a butternut squash ravioli.

Zucchini Noodles (Zoodles)

You’ll never miss the pasta if you start serving these with your Italian dishes. They are pretty, too!

Cauliflower Pancakes

The other day, potato pancakes came to mind and I they could probably be made with cauliflower. Turns out they can!

Cauliflower Mash

The touch of nutmeg in here really makes the dish. Try this as a substitute for mashed potatoes. It’s really quite delightful
