If your weekday lunches need a makeover, this colorful tart makes a much more interesting partner for a cup of soup or salad. They're also the perfect appetizer—just cut into 2-inch squares and reheat. Too easy!
Here's a turkey sandwich with a twist: a creamy and spicy chili sauce. Do something new with those turkey leftovers!
I love carbonara. But sometimes I find the egg sauce a bit, well, slimy. To fix that I often dilute the eggs with cream. While this tastes pretty darned good, it happens to have a pretty darned bad effect on my hips. So lately I’ve been using yogurt instead. You can use any kind of plain yogurt in this recipe (from non-fat to whole milk). I’m still partial to the whole milk version, but again, I swap it out for lower fat when my mind is on my hips. I also swap out the traditional bacon or pancetta for the much lighter Canadian version.
Maple and yogurt make a wonderful sauce for chicken. The maple adds a nice sweetness, while the yogurt tenderizes the meat. This dish has an Asian flair with a touch of orange.
A quick pan roast is a great way to cook lots of fish. You need a good sauté pan or cast iron skillet and an oven preheated to 450°. Try this same recipe with stripped bass fillet, salmon or cod.
