This hearty two-bean chowder is a healthy comfort food, perfect for the cold winter weather we've been having. Mashing a portion of the beans is a healthy way to make the soup thick and creamy like a chowder.

Green Eggs and Ham

Tuesday, March 1, 2011


I made green eggs and ham again to celebrate Dr. Seuss' birthday which is tomorrow {March 2}. This time I used spinach juice instead of green food coloring to make the green eggs. The natural dye of the spinach turned the eggs a beautiful green and you won't even taste the spinach.

The origins of chicken cordon bleu are unclear but it is thought to be an American dish, not French, as the name implies. I baked the chicken to make the dish lighter, and added a creamy mushroom sauce to complete this rich, comforting (and guilt-free) meal.

Ham and Asparagus Rolls

My sister-in-law and her girls taught me how to make this healthy and kid-friendly snack. The rolls are easy to make and they're a great way to disguise asparagus. And your kids can help you make the rolls.

Cauliflower and cheese is the British take on the popular comfort food: macaroni and cheese. What a clever way to disguise cauliflower. We recently had some friends over for dinner and I made this dish...nobody missed the pasta! I can't wait to try this with broccoli, carrots and other vegetables. What veggies wouldn't be good with a cheesy Mornay sauce?!
