Chicken Parmesan

This is one of Tyler’s all-time favorite dinners. It has been a popular choice in the past, but we haven’t been eating it since we started trying to eat healthier. I thought is was more that time to come up with a healthier version that still has all the requisite crisp-cheesy-goodness. The good news is, the new recipe has the ‘Tyler Stamp of Approval’ which is probably the highest praise I could get.

Sesame Chicken with Stir-Fried Vegetables

This is my version of the popular Chinese take-out, Sesame Chicken. I’ve lightened up the recipe considerably by not coating and deep frying the chicken. Omitting a step also shortens the preparation time by a lot, as well making this a quick, easy, and healthy weeknight dinner.

Hot Chocolate with Coconut Whipped Cream

This recipe is my most versatile chocolate recipe. It’s just healthy enough that you don’t have to feel guilty about having it for breakfast, but decadent enough for a most satisfying dessert. While you might not think that coconut whipped cream would be as good, let me assure you that it is. I love chocolate, I crave chocolate really so this recipe is perfect for a spur of the moment chocolate craving. It’s so fast, looks amazing, and is so chocolaty and good. If I’m really in a hurry, I just make the hot chocolate without the extras.

Satay Chicken Lettuce Wraps

These Lettuce Wraps are wonderful, I could go on and on. Suffice it to say, I’m hooked and we’ll be eating these often. I have a longstanding addiction to all things satay chicken. When we’re in Calgary we love to get Vietnamese subs in Chinatown and we always get satay chicken. I have been longing for one since November. Now I can have some of the same flavors at home with the addition of a lot more vegetables.

Chocolate Tart

Envision a sticky, chocolatey crust with a satin smooth chocolate filling. I just finished a piece and already I want another. You know how there is that “be good” voice saying “probably better not”. Well, she has nothing to say because this is pretty healthy as far as desserts go. Plus, one bite brings on a chocolate induced silence. Nothing but pure bliss.
