Gujarati Saag Paneer

Aside from the bountiful choices of fabulous flavors found in Indian and Southeast Asian cooking, its appealing aspect of extremely healthy food draws me back to it time after time. In the West Indian state of Gujarat, the emphasis is on vegetables and freshness.

Most Gujaratis are strictly vegetarian and it is from this region that I draw inspiration for some of my gluten free recipes as well as recipes for overall enjoyment at both small and large gatherings. The majority of… Continue

We started with this Creamy Cheezy Chicken and Broccoli casserole. The use of lower fat soup and mayonnaise really took the calorie count down, but kept the casserole creamy and luscious!

Egg and Roasted Pepper Sandwich

I love the combination of peppers and eggs. Both of my Nanas would often make this dish but it took the form of a scramble. In any form I love peppers and eggs. On top of a toasted slice of whole wheat bread I spread some goat cheese. On top of the cheese I placed a big slice of roasted pepper. On top of the pepper I slid a fried egg. Salt and pepper and a couple shakes of green Tobasco and I was set. So easy. So delicious. So satisfying.…

This traditional Greek meze is easy to make at home. The ingredients are simple but used the right way will yield amazing flavor. I begin by straining non-plain yogurt. You can use the plain yogurt of your choice. The process is the same as

making yogurt cheese and the consistency is up to you. I didn't want it quite as thick as yogurt cheese so I strained it for… Continue

Baked Goat Cheese Salad

If you like goat cheese, this is the salad for you. Crispy coating covering a warm, creamy center. Set atop fresh salad greens tossed in a zesty vinaigrette, this baked goat cheese salad turned into part of the main course. With a side of roasted sweet potato, S and I split the 8 oz. of cheese and found it rich and filling.

The recipe is from the fifth season of America's Test Kitchen which I've been watching on a DVD set from the library. The videos from the library are free. This… Continue

Chicken Provolone Flatbread with Caramelized Onions and Roasted Red Peppers

It's been busy with us. Over the fourth of July holiday, we decided to take a road trip to the beach. With gas prices, I was eager to find ways to save money, so I packed our lunch for the trip out and the first day. Simple sandwiches and fresh fruit, we saved money on two meals and a few snacks. After the trip, we had some leftover sliced provolone but no meat... Daniel isn't fond of cheese sandwiches so I had to figure out a way to use it… Continue

Cheese Consumption In The United States

According to recent figures, the United States has the 7th largest per capita consumption of cheese. In 2004, that position in the world rankings equated to 31.2 pounds of cheese being eaten by every person in America. That's a lot of pizzas! In fact, if all of that cheese consumption was pizza-related, a person would have to eat over 80 pizzas in a year. Not surprisingly, the Italians and Greeks rank higher than America in the cheese… Continue
