Another yummy way to eat more cauliflower




After creating an indulgent, new recipe last week, I felt compelled to make sure this week's recipe had us back on track. In actuality, even though I call it healthy-ish, it probably is the right approach to take for good-for-you eating. This

Cauliflower & Mushroom Risotto

Incredibly delicious & healthy in one bowl




Last week I diverted from the healthy eating routine most people follow in January. Now, it's back to some dishes that will help you recover from holiday indulgences. One of my favorite ways to do this is eating more vegetable-focused meals. I

Simple & delicious; a fine pairing




During the holidays we hosted a work gathering at our home. With a group of a dozen people, I made all of the dishes for this cocktail reception. I wanted all of the foods to be eaten easily while standing. No one wants

Deconstructed Poached Pear

The perfect beginning or ending to a meal




This recipe came to me due to a lack of fruit and a lack of patience. My initial plan was to purchase small pears, such as forelle. Sadly none of my local grocery stores had any in stock. Instead I purchased

New & Improved Creamy Carrot Soup

Who knew carrot soup could be so luxurious?




I am very much a fan of shortcuts when necessary or practical. I keep store-bought pickled beets in the fridge for afternoon snacks and don't feel badly that I haven't made them. I use packaged puff pastry to save time when

Classic Cucumber Salad

Just like Mom used to make it, kinda




On Tuesday I re-posted the first cucumber salad recipe I shared on Think Tasty. In the introduction I referenced today's salad as new. In all fairness, this isn't a new recipe at all. It's just new to Think Tasty. My

Nice and creamy, but also nice and healthy.




It's only been a year since I initially shared this recipe, but it is a perfect partner for this week's new recipe. This recipe for Creamy Cucumber Salad is my favorite version of cucumber salad. The new recipe, which I'll publish

Individual Spaghetti Squash Lasagnas

A healthy, yet hearty, alternative to regular lasagna




I don't think I've met a squash that I dislike. Whether it be a squash of a summer nature, such as zucchini, or a winter squash, such as butternut, I love them all. Each of them has its own delicious qualities.

by Michele Pesula Kuegler July 5th, 2018| Breakfast Dishes, Healthy Cooking, Recipes, Vegetarian

You'll want to eat more than one; no guilt in that!




As I mentioned on Tuesday, a good number of the meals I eat have an egg focus. Most often these meals involve eggs whites. I make scrambled egg whites, egg white omelets, or just simple fried egg whites.

A simple spring dish that has complex flavors




All of our palates change with time, I assume. I know mine has. It's a topic my husband and I often discuss: what dishes didn't you eat as a kid that you love now? One of the items on my "wouldn't

Kale & Black Bean Ch-alad

Hearty. Flavorful. Vegetarian.


What's a girl to do when her husband is on the road for the week and she's at home? Cook dishes that he wouldn't enjoy! That was the exact basis for this dish's creation. Being a solo diner for the week, I knew I wanted to
