tips: work lunch salad dressing

I’m always finding a way to incorporate last night’s leftovers into a tasty next day work salad. Here, I added a drumstick and asparagus to leafy greens and veggies for a hearty lunch treat.

Meal planning, for me, is about balance. I eat everything… but in moderation. My mother had high blood pressure, so I learned early on how to forgo salt for other alternative spices. Heart healthy grains and low in fat are two other lessons that were reinforced throughout youth. If you haven’t noticed by now, I [...]

In lovely, small family tradition, this meal transforms last night’s leftovers into a delicious island-style brunch. ¬†Years ago, I lived near a little brunch spot in Manhattan Beach, California that was open from about 10:00-3:00 and served Hawaiian Brunch. From what I remember, there were only a few things on the menu… chicken teriyaki with [...]

So the real title of this meal should be: Sesame Teriyaki Chicken with Fennel Mushroom Peaches – but it was too long for my format! As the only child of a single, working mother, coming of age in the 80′s I ate a lot of meals that started in a box, can or the microwave. [...]

mediterranean chicken with dandelion green pastina

You might be familiar with dandelions growing rampant in your back yard, but did you know that those greens are packed with vitamins (A,C,E & more beta carotene that a carrot, just to name a few).
