Raving about Recipes

For dinner last night, I wanted to do something simple and clean, and I had some chicken breasts I wanted to use but couldn’t decide what to do with them.  In swoops Christie at the right moment with this fabulous recipe for Pomegranate Chicken!

I marinated it for an hour before throwing it on the grill.  It was herby and flavorful, and I’ll totally make it again!  Alongside it, I made a salad but was a little heavy-handed with the gorgonzola.  Oops.

In other recipe news, I was honored to be asked to contribute a recipe for the Woman’s Day website!  They wanted a lightened-up version of a classic comfort food, and it just so happened I made pulled pork the day I got the request.  What goes better with pulled pork than lightened-up coleslaw?  Check out the page – my humble little recipe is in good company alongside some tasty-looking fare from some other fab bloggers!  Thanks, Woman’s Day!

What’s your favorite simple foods dish or comfort food?  Have you ever tried to make a healthified version of a typically calorie-dense recipe?
