Pear Walnut Bread -- Juggling With Julia

I’m no techie. I use technology, but I don’t get technology. Even blogging technology. Especially blogging technology. I do get baking. Behold Exhibit A. Pear Walnut Bread. Chomp. But the rest? I don’t know a host from a permalink, and don’t ask me about SEO or plugins. I could not easily explain these to anybody. Still, I continue on, blogging […]

Chicken Sausage, Spinach, and Barley Soup -- Juggling With Julia

It’s finally April 1st! Did you torture your kids with tricks today? Greased the doorknobs, booby-trap the kitchen faucet, or tell them they had a snow day? Though I’ve abstained from all of that so far (I hate to see tears before school), last night I was beginning to think someone was starting April Fool’s Day […]

Coconut Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies with Greek Yogurt -- Juggling With Julia

Today’s post has a dual purpose. For one, we’ll be talking about these amazingly chewy coconut oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. They’re full of yummy coconut and chocolate flavor, chewy with oatmeal, and have just half the butter thanks to the addition of Greek yogurt. FYI, the mastermind behind this flavor combo, and my official sous […]

Lightened Up Chicken Parmigiana -- Juggling With Julia

Who doesn’t love a good parmiagiana? Savory sauce and ooey gooey cheese over fried chicken cutlets. A calorie calamity? It’s sure got potential. However, this is one of those dishes where a few minor adjustments sacrifices nothing in the way of flavor, but make big differences in the nutrition profile. And that’s great news. Unfortunately, […]

Apple Cranberry Baked Oatmeal -- Juggling With Julia

Blessed be friends with a sharing spirit. Because of this blog, I’m constantly showered with recipes, stories, questions, and bacon (an entire category in itself). It’s no surprise that’s where some of JWJ’s best recipes got their start. I tweak them here and there, to accommodate my tastes and my pantry, but it’s unlikely they […]

Smoky Spiced Tilapia with Mango Avocado Salsa -- Juggling With Julia

Just so we’re clear on this, tell me: we are all trying to eat more fish, right? I mean, it’s got to be on just about everybody’s list. You know. The list. The one in our heads enumerating all the things we intend to start doing to make ourselves healthier. Practice yoga. Floss. De-clutter. Those are mine (what are yours?) Eat more fish. That’s also […]

St. Patrick’s day. Tomorrow?! Quick, what are you making? I don’t even know myself. We’re headed to a friend’s home for a little St. Patty’s day feast. She is really into it, and last year made an incredible rainbow layer cake. I’m still in awe, and am wondering what she’ll do to top this? If you’re in the same boat as […]

Reduced Fat Basil Cheddar Scones -- Juggling With Julia

It’s been a long time since I’ve tried my hand at scones. It’s not that they’re complicated or anything. It’s just that my first attempt – (French Toast Scones with Maple Bacon Icing) -was so amazingly delicious, I feared any type of encore would fall flat. After 2 and a 1/2 years, though, I was […]
