Garlicky Pesto

I love garlic. It is like a great, divine god of the food world. Pesto is a lovely concoction – not only with garlic, but cheese, fresh roasted nuts, a lovely olive oil and Basil (the mother of all summer herbs). Despite the sacred flavoring this little number will bring to your pastas, tomatoes and […]

Spa Water (for Less Belly Fat?)

The past few weeks I kept stumbling upon “Sassy Water” (literally, through the StumbleUpon app on my iPad). Sassy Water was made popular by the Flat Belly Diet (here is WebMD’s take on the diet). I’m not a dieter, and never will be, but I was curious about this phenomena. Sassy Water that helps reduce […]

Spinach Garlic Rollups

What makes it easier to eat healthy, leafy greens than a little cheese, dough, garlic and butter? Not much I’d say. These little savory rolls really hit the spot and are wonderful when served with pasta or salad, particularly a little Caprese (Tomato, Mozzarella and Basil) salad. This really is a simple dish with a […]

Lavender Mint Sun Tea (ME)

In the South, we love our sun tea. And while it takes some time and patience, there isn’t much more to do when it is hot and sweltering in the wet summer heat. I don’t know why sun tea tastes better, it may be the slow wait as it turns a golden hue and the […]

Watermelon Mint Punch

This beverage is like summer in a glass, only without the steamy heat. It is cool, crisp, refreshing and (if the proper optional ingredients are added) can make you all the more merry despite the oppressive summer temperatures. Watermelon is a summertime staple in the South to be sure, and this is one of my […]

Baked Lemon Cake Donuts

These thick, tangy cake donuts are a little healthier than the standard fare – baked instead of fried, nonfat milk and Greek yogurt used in place of other fattening ingredients. I didn’t have a donut pan at the time I made these, but I highly recommend one. I have one on order for my next […]
