Combining Creativity with Health and Economics

Typically create a recipe based on what’s in sale/in season. Must try sautéing eggplant and lean ground turkey in your fav tomato sauce and add mozzarella and/or ricotta when serving. The turkey was $1.99/lb and the ricotta $2.99/2 lb container and mozzarella $1.99 until Saturday at Shoprite. Lower fat choices available. Details below and on…

Grilled Veggies

When time is of the essence and I happen to be using the grill, I just toss any variety of frozen veggies I have in a little olive oil and grill them on a nonstick perforated grilling pan.

Shot of B-12🤸🏼‍♀️

An average of once/year, I sauté a few onions and liver (reminiscent of a dish I grew up with but also a huge natural shot of B-12 amongst other nutrients). This time I have chosen to grill cabbage to serve along side it. All very simple. Love the crispy edges on the cabbage. Truly a…
