Avocado in a milkshake might sound unusual, but in Vietnam it’s a traditional treat that you can order in local restaurants. Enjoy a creamy, rich shake while getting a serving of vegetables to boot!

This healthy version of orange sherbet reminds me of the “push-up” pops I used to have as a kid that were filled with creamy sherbet, refreshingly cool during the hot summer months.

Winter is the perfect time for soup and this one can even help you to keep your New Year’s resolution. High in protein and low in fat, this chunky soup will help you to feel full without packing on the pounds.

Broccoli with Garlic Sauce

Broccoli Garlic

Most kids love Chinese take-out and will gladly eat broccoli. I make this for the “bid kid” in my life- my husband. He hates veggies, but he coo-coo for Asian flavors that perk up this crisp tender, nutritional packed veg!

Zucchini with Sage

Zucchini Sage

Sage is a very strong herb when used fresh, but its flavor mellows when sautéed in olive oil. The Italian call sage cooked in butter, “black butter” and serve it over pasta or meat.

Balsamic Asparagus

Balsamic Asparagus

Asparagus is the quintessential spring vegetable but is easy to find year-round. Balsamic mixed with chicken broth and cornstarch adds a sweet-and-sour flavor to this dish. Top with grilled, sliced chicken to make it a meal.

Snow Peas with Orange Zest and Garlic

Orange Snowpeas

I wrote this recipe for my good friend Phil who enjoyed it during Tammi’s wonderful Christmas dinner shared in Vermont. Anyone who has minimal cooking experience will like this recipe and even my husband, the reluctant cook, prepared it for us all. Just be sure not to overcook the snow peas.
