Healthier Mixed Berry Sauce

With reduced sugar, this sauce relies on the natural sweetness of the berries.  You can use it to top pancakes and waffles, cakes, oatmeal, and ice cream. Experiment with more ways to use it!

Triple A Summer Salad with Ditalini

Triple A Summer Salad combines a lot of my favorite ingredients, but especially the “A”s: arugula, asparagus and artichoke hearts. The asparagus is sautéed to al dente, with a soft outer bite but still slightly crunchy insides. I add the artichoke hearts cold from the refrigerator. The arugula (along with the rest of the salad) […]

Pear pecan arugula salad is one of my favorites for the holidays. It can be made with any greens and topped with any dressing, but I prefer arugula or romaine lettuce when I make it. You can also make it with a mix of arugula and romaine, rather than choosing one or the other. I […]
