Chipotle Orange Shrimp

Summer BBQ, here we come! Orange is the perfect summer flavor and the Vitamin C protects your skin while you are grilling in the sun.

Pasta Bolognese

Pasta Bolognese

I love Parmesan but if you’re on a tight budget tangy Romano cheese is an ideal substitute at half the price. I use reduced fat cream cheese in place of heavy cream that usually appears in the traditional version.

Double Chocolate Brownies

Chocolate Zucchini Brownies

My granny always had so much leftover zucchini in her garden, it was a challenge to use it all. I invented this recipe when she gifted me a huge bag of zucchini one summer fresh from her garden. Zucchini is very high in water and fiber content. It’s the perfect way to moisten brownies without adding extra fat and get extra fiber in your diet.

Chocolate Avocado Milkshake

Chocolate Avocado Milkshake

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!

Blueberry Pops

Blueberry Pops

This fruity pops are sweet since they combine two antioxidant rich foods, blueberries and spinach. If you visit my SkinnyChef.com website, you can watch the Better TV segment where I feature this recipe!

Brown Sugar Ice Cream

Brown Sugar Ice Cream

I’m always on the hunt to find ways to use leftovers. This is the prefect way to treat your family to a frozen dessert and pump up the servings of whole grains at the same time.

Orange Sherbet

Orange Sherbet

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.

Hearty Vegetable Ham Soup

Hearty Ham Soup

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.

BLT Pasta

BLT Pasta

I created this recipe for my friend, the Fresh Grocer, Tony Tantillo. It’s an Italian spin on classic American flavors of bacon, lettuce, and tomatoes. I also added fresh fennel for extra flavor and texture.

Quinoa Risotto

Quinoa Risotto

Risotto is prized for its creamy texture and rich taste. Quinoa is naturally creamy and makes a lighter, whole grain version of this popular Italian comfort food. Spinach adds extra nutrition and flavor.
