Parker’s Low-Calorie Cotton Candy

Did you say low-calorie cotton candy? Here’s what happened. My husband’s that guy who is secretly aware of everything I know and think. He’s also the guy who gets a kick out of shows like The Profit, reads books on memorization techniques and spends Monday through Friday basking up to his eyeballs in the world of finance. Snooze-fest! […] Read more…

Skinny Baked Brie

I’ve loved baked brie before I even tried it. I remember sitting in a restaurant and seeing a group of beautiful, older women gossiping over mimosas and brie, and I thought, “Maybe – if I’m lucky – someday that will be me and my best friends.” And while that still hasn’t happened, I do have […] Read more…

Skinny No Carb Lasagna

When I go low-carb, I mean it, so recipes like my Skinny No Carb Lasagna are crucial to my success. Why? Bottom line, I get super bored (when I eat the same food over and over again), and if I don’t switch it up, my commitment dwindles. In other words, I want to eat something […] Read more…

Skinny Grilled Cheese Waffles

You are so confused by those four words: Skinny Grilled Cheese Waffles. I can feel it. Confused, or a little grossed out. Maybe both. I’m sure you’re wondering what has to be wrong with me to want to make Skinny Grilled Cheese Waffles out of waffle dough, but you only feel that way because you […] Read more…

Shrimp and Turkey Quinoa Stir Fry

So, shrimp and turkey quinoa stir fry? Sounds simple enough, now that I know how to say quinoa. I used to pronounce quinoa like, “key-no-ah.” Oh, it was fantastic. I kind of wish no one had ever corrected me, and for the rest of my life, I’d go around ordering the “ava-ca-da” “key-no-ah.” Yah, I […] Read more…

BBQ Chicken Ranch Salad (Using Yogurt Dressing)

There’s a dirty rumor going around about salad: “If you want to eat healthy, and you’re eating at a restaurant, just order a salad.” Well, it’s about time someone puts this rumor to rest. If you want to be healthy, or if you’re trying to lose weight, you should pay attention to what is going […] Read more…

Low-Carb Buffalo Chicken Soft Tacos

You had me at buffalo chicken. Here is the very interesting thing about running a low-calorie or “skinnified” food blog with a focus on caloric intake. I’ve left out an entire group of people who are attempting the dreaded low-carb diet to burn fat. It’s not caloric intake for them :: not as much, anyway. Rather, it’s […] Read more…

Skinny Pizza Dough

There’s this place in Manhattan called John’s Pizzeria, and while it doesn’t sell Skinny Pizza Dough, it does sell the best pizza you’ll ever have. It’s right off W. 44th Street, close enough to catch a show afterward. The building stands as an old Cathedral with kaleidoscopic stained-glass ceilings and an upper deck that looks […] Read more…

Skinny Enchilada Lasagna

I get it: this need we have, this craving, for Skinny Enchilada Lasagna. Come on, we all feel that inkling, that deep-seated desire, that going nowhere have-to-have. A low calorie, low fat alternative to the normally unhealthy Italian and Mexican foods we all know and love. Believe me, I’m not knocking Italian and Mexican food. […] Read more…

Skinny Turkey Lasagna

Y’all, it is tough to make Skinny Turkey Lasagna, because you’re staring at ingredients like cheese and noodles. And let’s be honest, not everyone is in love with veggie lasagna and not everyone should have to be. Look, I love veggies – to the point where I am going to secretly stuff veggies down your throats at every opportunity […] Read more…
