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.

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 […]

Rosemary Lemon Chicken - Juggling With Julia

Let’s close our eyes, shall we? C’mon, let’s do it. Let’s imagine mild, Spring-like weather. The smell of damp earth. Birds singing so loudly in the early morning that you can’t fall back asleep.

Happy National Nutrition month! I’ll be highlighting healthy, easy dishes all month long (nothing new there).

I told you I was going to do it! I re-created the awesome chicken salad I tasted at the Brazilian Grill last weekend. Though my taste buds might never forget the flavors, my brain had a little trouble recalling the ingredients. Fortunately I have the inside scoop on my pathetic memory, so knew enough to […]
