Indian Chicken Cauliflower Wrap with Cilantro Lime Cream
This Indian Chicken Cauliflower Wrap was inspired by my good friend Cheryl. She invited me over to her house this spring and served a fantastic lunch. Everything was amazing from her house, to the table setting to the delicious food! It was a fun afternoon! She told me later she wanted me to experiment with the wrap and create a recipe for the website, so I did! She knows how much I love to play around with food.

Garlic Scapes and Garlic Spears: Air Fried, Grilled and Roasted
It's Garlic Scape 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.
What are they?
Well for those of you who don't know about Garlic Scapes and believe me there are quite a few people who have never heard of them - they are the flower stalks that spring out of the garlic plant bulb. Farmers remove the bud in late June to encourage the ...
Asian Sautéed Radish Salad with Farro
The idea for this Asian Sautéed Radish Salad with Farro really just evolved over the period of about a week. I had heard about roasted radishes on Connect (Weight Watcher's Social Group) and how they taste very different when roasted. So I decided to try them and they were delicious!I As I was eating them, I thought, "This would be good as a salad with farro." From there the salad took on a life of it's own. I tried roasting the different vegetables together in the oven. They were pretty ...
Cilantro Chicken Black Bean Wrap with Lime Cream
This Cilantro Chicken Black Bean Wrap with Lime Cream recipe is adapted from one of my tea room recipes, Cilantro and Black Bean Salad. This was such a popular salad at my former tea room, Afternoon to Remember in Newcastle, California. The original salad recipe you can find in my afternoon tea cookbook, Twelve Teas to Remember. Unfortunately it wasn't a very point friendly salad with the mayonnaise and oil in the dressing thus the reason I decided to update it into a healthy wrap. It can be ...
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 also ...
This 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.
Tomatillo Green Salsa
I've been making this salsa for years. It was 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). It's great with chips, over enchiladas, and in my Chipotle Cilantro Dressing. It's mild but you can make it hotter if you use this as a base and add 1-2 finely chopped chipotle peppers (look at far salsa in background, it's a little redder in color-that's the Spicy Tomatillo Salsa). I ...
Whole Wheat Pizza Dough for Individual Pizzas
This is a quick and easy pizza dough recipe which I adapted to make it more smart point friendly. The reason the recipe quantity is on the larger side is because it's nice to have these in the fridge or freezer. When you want to make a quick pizza, they are ready to go. Divide the dough into 16 balls. Use what you need and save or freeze the rest for later. Individual pizzas also work well in my house because everyone likes something different. I like mushrooms and peppers on mine (hubby ...
