Roasted Red Pepper Salmon with Spinach

Posted on September 29, 2010

This high protein salmon dish with Roasted Red Pepper Tomato Soup from Pacific Foods was a big hit with my husband, and children as well.

The sweet, smoky taste of the sauce (which simply uses the above soup) along with healthy spinach and salted salmon, results in a sophisticated entree that is not too challenging to make –a lovely dish that will wow your guests.

Thanks for all of your votes in the first round of Pacific Foods Everyday Chef Challenge!  Because ... read more →

Rosh Hashanah Recipes

Posted on September 17, 2009

Rosh Hashanah is tomorrow at sundown and although I’m a tad behind in my planning, we are getting ready.  Thus far, I have put together the below menu.  I’ve been perusing Claudia Roden’s The Book of Jewish Food for additional ideas, as she is one of my favorite cookbook authors.  Of all time.

Although I will not be making the challah that is listed below, I thought others might enjoy using this recipe for the holiday.  I think the recipe ... read more →

Even though summer is coming to a close, I’m still into my green juices and smoothies; more than ever, in fact.  This is one of my favorites and I owe credit to Meghan Telpner as it is based on one of the recipes from the Green Cleanse on her site.

I’m running out to the airport with one of these in hand to refresh and revive me on the dash to Denver.  Soon I’ll be in NYC doing signings and I ... read more →

One of the great benefits of the CSA (in addition to receiving produce ... read more →

Spinach Salad with Pistachios

Posted on May 13, 2008

Well, Mother’s Day was gorgeous. A warm and balmy 70°, we went for a lovely hike and after that, I prepared a big dinner for my husband, the boys, our friends Chris and Larry and their little ones. We had Chicken Marbella (delicious) and a big spinach salad. Chris helped me to surreptitiously photograph the salad above as the hub does not like it when I take food pics whilst we have guests visiting for a meal. ... read more →

More Spinach Salad, Mom!

This salad recipe with spinach is a good way to get the little ones their greens. Child friendly, it’s wonderfully healthy Paleo/primal fare.

Children eat salad? Yes, it’s true. The boys eat this in heaps. The secret is fruit. My boys love fruit. I can generally get them to eat anything if I spike it with a little bit of fruit and insist they finish an entire portion before they get more. Common sense approach to avoiding ... read more →
