Roasted Cauliflower and Pomegranate Salad with Honey Sesame Dressing

Roasted Cauliflower and Pomegranate Salad with Honey Sesame Dressing

It can be hard to eat salads in the winter, at least for me. All I want to reach for is rich, warm foods that stick to your ribs. I blame evolution. My body hasn’t caught up to modern technology and wants to pack on the pounds to survive the winter cold. That must why lately I just want to eat cookies and hot chocolate for dinner, right?

Anyway what this means is that I need my salads to be extra tasty and a bit special this time of year, and today’s salad is just that. The cauliflower is roasted until just tender with za’atar, a Middle Eastern spice blend made with thyme and sesame. Then the whole salad is dressed with a delicious, easy dressing made with tahini (sesame paste) and honey. Delicious and special enough for a holiday dinner.

Spaghetti Squash with Mushroom Ricotta Herb Sauce

Spaghetti Squash with Mushroom Ricotta Herb Sauce

At least a couple of times a week, all I want is pasta – warm, hearty, stick to your ribs pasta. However most of the time I don’t want the extra calories, added fat, or extra carbs from eating a big bowl of pasta. So on those nights, I usually reach for spaghetti squash or zucchini noodles instead. Paired with a rich sauce like today’s mushroom ricotta herb sauce, this skinny alfredo, or a simple carbonara – and you can enjoy a delicious and rich meal without all the calories. Consider adding some shrimp or chicken for added protein or using half spaghetti squash/half pasta if you aren’t watching carbs.

Slow Cooker Sunday: Chicken Quinoa Soup with Kale

Slow Cooker Sunday:  Chicken Quinoa Soup with Kale

Hearty warm soups are my dinner of choice right now, and this soup doesn’t disappoint. The quinoa adds even more protein to the dish, making it a soup that will fill any eater. I like to use poblano peppers in it to give it the slightest touch of spice in the background, but bell peppers work great as well. You could also add a can of diced tomatoes to deepen the flavor. Also since this freezes great, make up a big batch and save individual portions for quick meals in the future.

Carrot and Zucchini Bread

Carrot and Zucchini Bread

Sometimes we all need a little extra motivation to get out of bed, especially this time of year when it is easier to stay cuddled up than brave the cold air waiting for you the minute you get up. Ugh, I just want to stay in bed all day. My new strategy – make something delicious that I am excited to eat in the morning and program the coffee machine so that I can smell fresh coffee before even getting up. It’s kind of working, and this delicious zucchini and carrot bread is helping. It’s the perfect blend of traditional zucchini bread and carrot cake, and tastes great with a light spread of cream cheese warmed up in the morning.
