Good morning. I’ve got HUGE news! My recipe, Enchilada Chicken Roll-Ups (see above), is featured on the Skinnytaste blog TODAY! CHECK IT OUT!
For those of you who don’t know, I’ve had the absolute honor and privilege of working with Skinnytaste author Gina Homolka (and advising dietitian Heather K. Jones, RD) for the past few years. I help with nutrition analysis, recipe proof reading and meal planning for the cookbooks and do some recipe development for the Skinnytaste blog. Crazy, right?!?!
I absolutely love Gina and her blog. For those who aren’t familiar, her motto is, “Delicious healthy recipes from my family to yours”. And boy is she right. Her recipes are healthy and delicious. They appeal to kids and adults alike. She has a magic touch when it comes to packing in flavor and nutrition without making you feel deprived or like you’re eating “diet” food.
Her recipes work because they are easy to follow, use easy-to-find ingredients and promote portion control (though if you need a higher calorie meal, you can double the recipes ;)). She incorporates her culture, tradition and travels into her recipes all while keeping things familiar and family friendly. Oh, and her photographs will leave you wiping drool off your face.
Don’t just take it from me. Both cookbooks are NY Times Best Sellers and her most recent book, Fast and Slow, was nominated for a James Beard Award!
If you don’t have the Skinnytaste Cookbooks yet, you can get them on Amazon:
She also has a Meal-Planner which you can get HERE
