Recipe: Mini Meatloaves

Anything that is mini-sized is cute, don't you think? In cooking, making miniature versions of foods is also a great way to keep portions in check. As an added bonus, it often speeds up the cooking time. Those are just a few of the benefits of these mini meatloaves. Cooked in a muffin tin, they come together in less than half the time of a traditional meat loaf, are sized-just-right so you get to have 2 of them in a serving, and are cute and fun to boot, if I do say so myself!

Recipe: Chicken Cordon Bleu

Chicken Cordon Bleu is one of those dishes that you want to serve to company because everyone seems to love it, and it has that fancy feel. It is also surprisingly simple to make. The only problem is that traditional versions are typically loaded with calories.

Eat Two of These WHOLE Pizzas for Less than 250 Calories! (Recipe)

It's Friday! Woo-hoo! If you're like me, Fridays brings back memories of pizza parties and sleepovers. I remember as a teenager when I thought eating anything with fat was a bad thing (this is called fat phobia and many of us who were around in the '90's had it thanks to the marketing of fat-free everything), I thought that the only way to make pizza healthier was to elimate the fat in it by topping it with fat-free cheese.

Video: Dinner Makeover

Hi y'all! Do you know what this month is? It's National Nutrition Month! This year's theme is "Savor the Flavor of Eating Right." It's great to celebrate good nutrition this month, but healthy eating is obviously something we need to be doing on a daily basis. So, I thought I'd share this video that I made in honor of National Nutrition Month a couple of years ago on "How to Get Your Plate in Shape." In it, I makeover a less than healthy dinner into a nutrient-packed meal!
