There are times when you want the tart flavor of a balsamic vinaigrette to dress your peppery arugula, and there are other times when you want a thick, rich salad dressing that doesn’t exactly scream health food. For the latter times, I present to you this avocado ranch dressing. It’s rich and delicious, but by using some sneaky ingredients it actually isn’t that heavy. Avocados are having a little bit of a cultural moment (you can get them on any […]

hollandaisesauce1_960

  Did you guys know there is a healthy version of hollandaise sauce that tastes even better than the real stuff? No butter is used in this recipe. Instead, plain yogurt is used as the base. The lemon juice gives it a nice flavor. Careful not to heat the sauce too quickly in the end, because the eggs will cook too fast and you will end up with a chunky sauce! Patience is your best friend for this recipe. Add pepper […]

  Normally when you ask for an iced coffee at a cafe, you get a cup of coffee with ice cubes in it plus or minus milk. I was surprised when I asked for one in Germany while on vacation and I got an iced coffee with vanilla ice cream in it. Let me tell you, the ice cream made it so much more delicious! I especially like to add ice cream to my iced coffee on really hot days, […]

What is it about heat that has us craving salads? I live down the street from a salad place, and the first hot day of summer is always the same: lines down the block. I like salad as much as the next person, and sometimes it’s nice to vary it up a little. Here’s an interesting salad using broccoli slaw, broccoli’s little brother and coleslaw’s cousin. (Does that also make coleslaw broccoli’s cousin?) Anyway, this recipe has multiple advantages: it’s […]

Ingredients 2 cans crushed or diced tomatoes 7oz can diced green chilies ½ […]
