Healthy Roasted Garlic and Chive Cottage Cheese Crema

I don’t know about you, but I’ve never been one to shy away from bold-flavored foods…

Extra, extra onion on every sandwich. (I wish I were kidding. If you’re ever at a sandwich shop and you hear someone order their sandwich with double extra onion, walk up and say hi because it’s probably me.)

At least one more clove of garlic than every recipe calls for.

Tunafish for breakfast…why not?!

What I Ate Wednesday #4

DSC_7097(small)

Breakfast, Part 1 (pre-workout): Cottage Cheese  I can’t believe it’s been about a year since I last did a What I Ate Wednesday post! (Here are my first three: 1, 2, and 3.) I’d like to say I’ll try to do more of these posts, but in reality, my daily eats generally aren’t always interesting (I’m still stuck on my cottage cheese in the morning! :) ). There is a random day that is pretty fun though, and this day was one of them…enjoy!...

What I Ate Wednesday #3

DSC_7738(small)

Breakfast, Part 1 (pre-workout):  Cottage Cheese   This is my third time participating in Jenn’s What I Ate Wednesday (here is my first and here is my second)…I know I don’t participate as much as some people, but I hope I’ve given someone out there some meal inspiration!  It’s actually more of a challenge than it seems to photograph everything you eat in a day (it’s really time-consuming and makes you think more than you normally would about what you’re ingesting), and this has caused me to gain even more respect for bloggers who post every meal they eat, every day of the week (Kath immediately comes […]...

What I Ate Wednesday #2

Breakfast, Part 1 (pre-workout):  Cottage cheese (I really wasn’t kidding when I said I eat it every day ;) ) This is my second time participating (here is my first) in Jenn’s What I Ate Wednesday and this month is all about loving your veggies…fun, right?  I knew right away that I wanted to participate.  If you’re a food voyeur (I know I am), dig right in!...

What I Ate Wednesday

Breakfast, Part 1 (pre-workout):  Cottage cheese (my favorite way to start the day :) ) The lovely Jenn of Peas and Crayons has been hosting What I Ate Wednesday for a while now and it’s always looked like fun, so I decided it was time to participate!  (Plus, who doesn’t like to see what other people eat?  Like Jenn mentioned, I think there’s a little bit of a food voyeur in all of us.  ;) )...

Stuffed Tomato Salad

IMG_4153 (Small)

Campari tomatoes are deep red, round tomatoes that are usually sold on the vine.  They’re sweet and juicy and I think they taste a lot like cherry tomatoes (they also look similar to cherry tomatoes, only larger).  Campari tomatoes are the perfect tomatoes for stuffing because in addition to their great flavor, they’re big enough to get a decent amount of filling inside. The filling I use in this recipe is a combination of three cheeses (mozzarella, Parmesan, and cottage cheese), which I puree until smooth.  The end result is a cheesy mixture with a consistency similar to ricotta, but much more flavorful.  If you’re […]...

Cauliflower-Spinach Gratin

img_0759-small

Gratin of any form is wonderful comfort food.  In place of the milk/cream, I used a cottage cheese purée in this gratin.  The day after making this I turned the leftovers into creamy cauliflower soup by puréeing what was left (I added a little water to thin it out), heating it up, and topping it with a sprinkle of chives.   Cauliflower-Spinach Gratin   (Yield:  4 servings)   ~3 c cauliflower, cut into bite-size pieces 3 c fresh baby spinach or ~3/4 c frozen baby spinach 1 small onion, diced 2 cloves garlic, minced ½ TB olive oil 1/3 c low-fat cottage cheese 1/3 c […]...

Cheese Blintzes

img_0412-small

Blintzes make a perfect weekend brunch.  Imagine this…it’s Saturday morning, you’re slowly waking up to the sunlight streaming in your window and the birds chirping…you get up and brew your coffee (what’s better than the smell of coffee brewing in the morning?) and your stomach starts to growl, leaving you wondering what to eat.  Since it’s a little too late for breakfast (it is Saturday, you’re entitled to sleep in!) and too early for lunch you decide to have brunch.  Luckily, this recipe only takes about 15 minutes to make.     Cheese Blintzes   (Yield:  Serves 2:  makes 4 blintzes total, 2 per serving) […]...

BLT Crustless Quiche

img_0535-small

What is the difference between crustless quiche and frittata?, you might be wondering.  As far as I can tell, not much.  The only difference that I know of, is that crustless quiche (like regular quiche) is made of a custard mixture (eggs and some form of cream or milk), while frittata is made of eggs.  The end products end up being slightly different…quiche has a lighter and more delicate texture, while frittata is denser.   In my recipe for crustless quiche I lighten it up by replacing cream with a purée of low-fat cottage cheese and milk…it actually has a very creamy consistency and does a […]...
