Spicy Pan Fried Shrimp with Asian Dipping Sauce

Spicy Pan Fried Shrimp with Asian Dipping Sauce by Kristi Rimkus

This is my own version of Bonefish Grill's Bang Bang Shrimp. I prefer to pan fry with Panko crumbs to reduce the calories, and my dip is on the lighter side, but still hot and spicy.

Easy Veggie Pizza with a Nutty Whole Wheat Crust by Kristi Rimkus

Why go to the local pizza joint and spend a ton of money on a greasy pizza, when you can make a healthier version at home? A bread machine makes terrific dough. Just top it with your favorite veggies, a little sauce, and cheese, and you've got a fresh, delicious treat!

Light and Delicious Tuna Melt

Light and Delicious Tuna Melt by Kristi Rimkus

My mother loves her tuna melts, but the typical tuna melt is loaded with fattening mayonnaise, and tons of calories. I decided to lighten up the fat and calories in Mom's favorite dish by using a light mayonnaise, and adding double the amount of veggies. Now she has a terrific, healthier version of her favorite sandwich.

This is such a colorful appetizer. In reality, it's a deconstructed version of a very popular spinach salad, usually served with fruit, dried cranberries and a vinaigrette. Creamy blue cheese, dried cranberries and toasted walnuts top endive, or apple slices. Easy and delicious!
