Budwig Diet Smoothie

Budwig Diet Smoothie by John Spottiswood

Someone turned me on to Dr. Johanna Budwig recently. I read a bit about her research and her diet online. While there isn't a lot of hard evidence behind it, she was definitely ahead of her time in recognizing the importance of good fats, and the harmful effects of bad fats, in our modern diets. She strongly encouraged the…

Tzatziki Sauce

Tzatziki Sauce by John Spottiswood

This is a great traditional greek sauce. Serve it on flatbread with fava beans, kebab, falafel, or anything else you can think of. It's super simple to make and you can experiment with adding different spices. The yogurt has a mellowing impact, so you can add just about anything without ruining it!

Hummus

Hummus by Frosted Flaker

This is a great snack for any time of year. I personally serve it with Kalamata olives and sometimes even diced cucumber and/or bell pepper. Keep in mind that after blending, fine-tuning the mixture with slightly more tahini and/or lemon juice is often needed (see step 3). As a footnote, tahini is what gives the hummus its creamy…

Creamy, crunchy, spicy and sweet, this salad covers all the flavor bases and provides a wonderful base for the linked Ginger Sesame Salmon recipe. It's beautiful too.

A simple but fantastic salad with a very nice dressing. Oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes add depth and flavor to this salad. We all really enjoyed this. Another amazing dish from my good friend Marci Chan!

Arugula with Packham Pears and Borage Blossoms

Arugula with Packham Pears and Borage Blossoms by Warren Weber

Nutty arugula and sweet pears make this salad an excellent after-dinner course. Prepare the salad before dinner; a squeeze of lime over the pears will keep them from darkening. Bartlett, Comice, or Bosc pears can be substituted for the Packhams. Select ripe pears that are firm but not mushy. Dress with Pear Vinaigrette.

Hawaiian Crest Salsa

Hawaiian Crest Salsa by Smokinhotchef

I came up with this recipe at the spur of the moment to accompany the shrimp recipe I was preparing for a late lunch get-together with several of my sisters and my brother Ken. I had just visited the supermarket, so I had lots of fresh ingredients on hand. My sister Gayle said this recipe reminded her of Hawaii and crisp freshness…

Favorite Creamy Coleslaw

Favorite Creamy Coleslaw by Frosted Flaker

For me, this has just the right balance of slaw to dressing. A true creamy slaw delight. Keep in mind this produces a VERY creamy version of coleslaw. To reduce the creaminess, simply add a bit more cabbage.

Guacamole

Guacamole by Beth Roan

Thank goodness colors have changed since the 70's. Remember when guacamole green was the color of most people's kitchens?? My sister and her boyfriend had a guacamole cook-off and Kyle's was the winner. I had been scared of guacamole ever since I was about 8. I finally decided to try it and I have to say it was way better than what I…
