Butternut Squash: low in calories and healthy

Oct 18th, 2014 Posted in Healthy Recipes | one comment »

I love to experiment with veggies, especially in the fall when there are so many varieties.


Today I steamed a butternut squash for about 10 minutes, cut it in half, scraped out the seeds  and let it cool. You decide on the texture. I like my squash a bit firm so I steam for 10, you may want more steaming time.




The stuffing

1/2 cup of whole wheat breadcrumbs

2 teaspoons raisins

2 teaspoons slivered almonds

1 clove chopped fresh garlic

1 small chunk of fresh ginger, chopped

Salsa Recipes: Green and Traditional Red

Aug 30th, 2014 Posted in Healthy Recipes | no comment »

I decided that salsa needs some experimentation, especially related to the spices so I bought both regular large ripe red tomatoes today at the farmer’s market and tomatillos for a green salsa.


Traditional salsa is easy to make

Traditional salsa is easy to make

2 Large red tomatoes chopped

1 small onion chopped

1 clove chopped garlic

Chopped fresh spices such as cilantro ( hand full) is what the recipe calls for but I used handfuls of chopped basil, a sprinkle of fresh thyme and sage.
