We came from here: http://cubits.org/MidAtlanticMusings/thread/view/621/

With the approach of autumn, cooler weather and shorter days, our thoughts are sure to be turning to comfort foods like soups, stews and other hearty dishes, so we've moved to a new thread to get started talking about that. Also, if anyone has some good recipes for making these types of dishes in a little less caloric fashion, please share! Whistling

I had Couscous...it was a box mix but I really liked it. Along side a tossed salad with a few almonds and blackeyed peas made a full meal for me. Meatball sandwich with leftover corn on the cob for hubs...nice easy meal, I like that Whistling
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

I picked up a Cooking Light book at Lowe's this afternoon. There are a lot of good looking recipes for cakes and cookies, breads and biscuits etc. Hoping to try some soon, a lot look like they will make nice gifts Thumbs up

I get on a baking kick every fall. I try to take all of my recipes and adapt them to be healthy ones. A lot of them work out. Some don't. I don't use fat free anything, just low fat. I don't use margarine at all or artificial sweeteners. I just use less sugar and will use fruits too. I use a lot of healthy flours and grains and lots of nuts and tons of interesting spices and dried fruits and fresh herbs.

Tonight we'll have mustard baked salmon, sauteed green beans with sliced portobello mushrooms and garlic mashed potatoes.


Salmon filets with a mixture of the following over the top: (I just scoop the amounts that I want with the Creme giving most of the volume
Salt
Pepper
Creme Fraisch
Dijon mustard
Whole grain mustard
Capers
Shallots

Bake in oven for about 25 minutes.

I was asked to make the cranberry-orange scones (made with heavy cream) from the Imperial Tea Garden recipes. My DH is using the excuse that the grandsons that will be here tomorrow just love them. (He eats most of them)

LOL Funny how that goes, huh Teri? Hilarious!

Wow, your dinner sounds wonderful. Do you make your own creme fraish? I used to buy it from trader joe's. Now I have started using lowfat Greek yogurt instead.

I'll be having something quick from the freezer. I'm working on all of these tomatoes making sauce, roasted tomatoes, tomatoe basil salad and blanching some tomatoes to freeze for winter dishes. It's very RED around here in my kitchen today.

Thanks for posting your great recipe!! Thumbs up

I got a variety of sustainably caught seafood - cod, haddock, scallops, salmon, shrimp and even a pound of lump crab meat. (I bought a big freezer so I will be eating well this winter!) So I'm gonna be wanting good seafood recipes you folks might have. Healthy ones. I found a one I'm trying with the cod tomorrow for dinner - a bunch of interesting spices in a yogurt based marinate and roasted tomato on the side.

Dang I wish I like salmon...just can't get a taste for it no matter how it's fixed...

Great Catch Tam! Hilarious! Sounds wonderful.

Stormy, sometimes I use the already packaged creme fraiche or, if I have enough time, I make my own from ingredients that I have in my frig.

Tammy, my husband does not like salmon ordinarily, but he'll eat it done this way or broiled and topped with ginger, brown sugar, honey, orange zest and orange juice. It makes a nice brown sticky crust and the flavors permeate the entire filet.

I don't know why it is, but the only meat or fish that I enjoy with something sweet added is pork or ham. No, that's not true, of course I love turkey & cranberries. Generally, I prefer my meals to be all savory. Years ago I used to eat duck l'orange and various cherry and apricot sauces, but I've gotten away from them and find that I don't really have a taste for them anymore.

Apples still find a way into many of my pork dishes and stuffings, berries still make it into my salads and pineapple always adorns my ham. But in general, the "sweeter" dishes are not ones that I prepare anymore.

Over time I've found that I am eating simpler and simpler food. Fewer spices per dish, much fewer sauces, and a lot less dairy products seem to be the order in my kitchen these days. I guess that I've been naturally migrating towards a mediterranean style of eating without really trying too. My last trip to Europe really influenced a lot of my present cooking. Fewer ingredients, bought fresh and prepared well seemed to be the order over there and it really appealed to me.
