Asian pears are beautiful this time of year, and add an unexpected sweet-crisp accent to this hearty vegetarian stir-fry. And I’m always looking for new ways to enjoy tofu, since it’s such a blank canvas and it’s fun to try different methods for it. You won’t be disappointed – the stir frying crisps it up so deliciously! Continue reading
Here’s a beautiful, colorful winter salad to perk you up in the chilly months. It’s even better the next day after the flavors get to blend together overnight. But don’t let that stop you from enjoying it right away… it’s also fantastic immediately! It’s super filling because both butternut squash and chickpeas have lots of fiber. Continue reading

I have made this vegetarian recipe for years and it even makes my carnivorous mother happy. Continue reading
Ah, the New Year. Don’t we all wish for something lighter to eat after all that holiday indulgence? How about lovely flaky white fish fillets topped with crunchy crumbs with a slight hint of garlic and lime? This dish is never heavy like a fried fish dish might be. It’s a favorite adapted from Cooking Light (here’s the original recipe), which I’ve lightened it up even further by leaving off the melted butter and simply spraying the breadcrumbs with cooking spray to get them to crisp up. I highly recommend Japanese panko crumbs for this – they’re sort of pre-crunchy already – but you can use any breadcrumbs you like. Also, this is seriously easy. Five minutes of prep, and 20 minutes later you are enjoying the crispy crunchiness!
