This spread is so simple and so tasty it is a real treat. I’ve put it on muffins, English muffins, stirred into plain non-fat Greek yogurt, and even spooned over some low-fat ice-cream. It’s versatile, satisfying, and won’t break the calorie bank. Hard to beat if you ask me.

I. Love. This. Pasta. I’m almost tempted to leave this post at that, but that wouldn’t be enough to tell you about it’s lightness, the brightness of the lemon, how quick and easy it is to make.

My friend Susan is a total inspiration to me in terms of cooking. She has a boldness in her cooking that I admire. She seems to be able to tackle any cuisine with confidence and she pulls it off. I happen to be a huge fan of sesame noodles and order them everywhere that I […]
The simple truth behind this dish is that it was the product of my near obsessive need not to throw away leftovers and I had some turkey meatballs and tomato sauce left over in the fridge but I didn’t really want to eat meatballs again so soon. Now, a true bolongese sauce is made from […]
