Roasted Tomatillo Green Salsa
Fresh roasted tomatillo salsa is simply the best! I've been making this tomatillo salsa recipe for years. It's super easy, very few ingredients and takes little time. This recipe is also in one of my previous cookbooks, Entertaining with Amy (definitely not a smart point friendly cookbook and thus the reason I ended up joining Weight Watchers). For a lower carb option serve with fresh jicama chips!

Healthy Black Bean and Lentil Chili
Cozy up to the fire on a cold rainy day with a cup of this delicious Instant Pot Lentil and Bean Chili! Simple, easy to make, yet filling. I love to serve it with my homemade focaccia bread. Because lentil chili is low in calories and points, you can serve it with a few pieces of luscious bread and a salad on the side and still stay within your calorie/point range. Freeze it into small portions for a quick, healthy meal later.
Great to make for a party! Instant Pot Chili appeals ...
Garlic Scapes and Garlic Spears: Air Fried, Grilled and Roasted

It's Garlic Scapes Season (also called Garlic Spears) here in the Northwest! My favorite time of year! Even my youngest son gets excited. I brought home 3 bunches today! They are available only a few weeks out of the year. You can also find onion scapes as well this time of year. Look for them at your local farmer's market as well as in the produce market at higher end grocery stores.

Balsamic Roasted Vegetables
Roasted Vegetables are my secret way to stay trim. They are full of vitamins (not empty calories) and they keep you full throughout the day. Throw whatever vegetables you have on hand in a large roasting pan. Add a few tablespoons of oil, some balsamic or spice and roast in the oven.

This healthy and tangy Citrus Vinaigrette is a delicious fresh tasting vinaigrette which you can use over any greens. I like to make it in a cruet so it's easier to shake. It keeps for about 2 weeks in the refrigerator. You can make it a creamy dressing by adding a few tablespoons of non-fat Greek Yogurt. It goes perfectly with my Chicken and Roasted Beet Salad. Just add a few tablespoons and what a delicious meal!
Spicy Roasted Vegetables
These spicy roasted vegetables are so easy to make, take little time and keep you full all day! This is my "Go to," snack of choice. You can experiment and add your own vegetables and spices. I make up a big batch on Sundays to have them throughout the week. You can also vary up the vegetables depending on what is in season. If you don't like them spicy, leave out the chipotle seasoning and jalapeño. I eat them alone as snacks, add them to salads along with some chicken for protein, and ...
This mango salsa is so fresh! Make sure you get a good ripe mango for best taste. It's great over salad, with chips and my favorite is tucked away in a fish taco. Yum! I like to spice it up with an entire jalapeno but you may want to try it with 1/2 of one first.
Trying serving this Mango Salsa with my Chipotle Fish Tacos. A delicious combination!
