Holiday Fruit Side Dish
This delicious, comforting, healthy side dish is a welcome addition to any holiday meal. It's so easy to prepare & so yummy, that you'll want to serve it all year round. I created this dish in the early 1970's when I cooked my very first Thanksgiving meal & I've been serving it ever since. No matter who I invited over for the holidays, they always asked me if I was going to serve this, and of course I said yes!
Serves 6 to 8
Lemon Pesto Salmon
Revised & updated 2/6/2021 - Easy to put together & goes from oven to table in no time. The cooking method insures that the salmon is very tender, succulent, delicious & the cleanup is basically nonexistent. which is always a plus! For a complete meal, serve with Jasmine Rice on the side.
Refreshing Mango Salsa Salad
This salsa salad pairs up nicely with both Mexican & some Seafood dishes. It's so healthy, amazingly easy to prepare & if you have more than 2 people to serve... just double, triple or quadruple the recipe & you can serve the whole gang!
Creamy Dreamy Herb Dressing
Relatively low in calories compared to traditional creamy style dressings, you'll want to add this to your salad dressing rotation for sure!
Yield: 3/4 cup
Roasted Herbed Baby Potatoes
These potatoes are super easy to make, are so delicious & the various colors add a special touch to any meal you serve them with!
Serves: 4 to 6
Bagels & Lox
This is one of my favorite indulgences. Years ago I used to eat both bagel halves in one sitting. Now, with the price of lox up in the stratosphere & in order make this meal lighter & healthier, I only eat half the bagel & compliment it with a side salad with a little dressing on top. Without the side salad this makes an easy breakfast, with the salad it's great for brunch or lunch.
Gourmet Cheese Fondue
This recipe was given to me, in the 1980's, by the famous Melting Pot restaurant. It's the best cheese fondue I've ever had. You can serve this as an appetizer, a snack for a few people or a light meal. It's really easy to make, fun to eat & cleanup is so easy. You're going to love it!
Serves: 2 to 4
Pears with Raspberry Sauce
This tastes totally decadent, like something you'd eat in an expensive restaurant, yet it's healthy & easy to make. It makes a wonderful breakfast, anytime snack or healthy dessert.
Serves: 2 to 4
Avocados Stuffed with Crabmeat Salad
I love this recipe for so many reasons, not the least of which is that it's so easy to prepare. It's healthy, delicious & makes a great appetizer, snack, light lunch or side dish.
Serves: 4 to 8
Creamy Carrot Soup
This is one of my favorite soups, especially in the Fall & Winter months! Not only are all the ingredients healthy for you on so many levels, but it's very creamy, so delicious & easy to make. I love to serve this with warmed up, crusty, multigrain rolls & butter.
Serves: 3 to 4 as a light meal or 4 to 6 as a starter
