Glazed Turkey Burgers – simple but good!

GLAZED TURKEY BURGERS Easy, simple ingredients…high protein, very low carb and figure-friendly.  A moist and delicious turkey burger that will work to keep you full for hours. (So sorry about the photo – it’s OLD!  But the meal is great!) I’ve cooked them on a counter-top grill or baked them in the oven.  These make…

Chicken Salad with a touch of curry and lime…

CURRIED CHICKEN SALAD Never enough variations on this theme… This one is not spicy, just mellow and sorta sweet with the crispy almonds, and succulent grapes.  The flavors get more pronounced as it rests, so making it ahead is always nice. Wrapped up in some buttery lettuce leaves or on a whole grain roll for…

Talk about a makeover!!

CHICKEN POT PIE IN CREPES So beautiful!   Homey-old-fashioned gets updated and elegant in this dish. I’ve taken my family-favorite casserole and removed the carby crust – kept the gorgeous filling and simply rolled it in my higher-protein-lower-carb crepes. You can’t go wrong with this.  Even if you didn’t tackle the crepe making and just…

Turkey? Yes. Stuffed? Yes. But it’s not a stuffed turkey!

SOUTHWEST TURKEY BURGERS I eat mostly vegetarian, but my husband doesn’t.  I’ve cut way down on the amount of red meat I fix him, but the ground turkey is a great substitute in things like this.  He loves these, actually. Without the bun, these are very low-carb, so you get a high-protein, filling meal.  These…

What’s not to love?! Individual lasagna with a spiced up twist…

TEX-MEX LASAGNA When you’re talkin’ about comfort food…Lasagna has to be pretty high on the list!   This one has a spicy twist and is perfect for those wanting to get away form the carby noodles. I like to do it in individual servings so that each person gets a gorgeous little lasagna all their…

Don’t be chicken…go south of the border!

CHICKEN CHILE RELLENO ROLLS Moist, spicy, cheesy…and really pretty quick! Serve with a bowl of cool pico de gallo and some Spanish rice for your family. ~~~~ . . Vegetable cooking spray 3/4 pound chicken breast halves (4 pieces) Kosher salt and black pepper Filling: 3/4 cup shredded Colby Jack cheese 3 tablespoons finely minced…

So familiar!

COMPANY CHICKEN Please don’t judge the recipe by the photo!  (I still didn’t know what I was doing with my camera…one of these days I’ll make it again and we’ll make prettier!).  This is such a good recipe – it’s been in every hometown cookbook and continues to be a favorite. Sounds odd and weird…

Just another meatloaf recipe…ho hum. NOT.

CHILE TURKEY MEATLOAF (For some reason this photo makes it look dry.  It is SOOOOOO not.) Super-duper moist and flavorful – it’s my husbands favorite meatloaf EVER.  This was a half-hearted-throw-everything-in type meatloaf at the last minute for dinner but Hon raved about it so much I had to scramble to save a piece for…

One dish meal…

CHICKEN CASSOULET In this comforting recipe, the chicken is complimented with bacon, onions, tomatoes and white beans. It gets thick and rich and very tender. Instead of the traditional bread crumb crust, I topped it with some shredded cheese. Prepare a wonderful, crunchy green salad and maybe a plate of whole-grain crackers for your family…

Elegant dinner – with very little fuss!

CHICKEN & MUSHROOM IN WHITE WINE If you want something that looks like you took forever making it – but didn’t – this is it.  It would be great for a dinner party or dinner in your pajamas. Try omitting the mushrooms and using broccoli – sounds good to me! ~~~~   Vegetable cooking spray…
