Huevos rancheros or “ranch eggs” is a classic Mexican dish that is great for a quick dinner. Traditionally, it's made with a red tomato-based sauce. Here we use tart and tangy green salsa instead. Serve with: brown rice and slices of avocado.

For the first time in our lifetime, Thanksgiving and Hanukkah will be celebrated on the same day, Thursday, November 28, 2013. (This won’t happen again for another 77,000 years!) For my multicultural family (my dad is Chinese and Buddhist, my mom’s a Jewish New Yorker), the convergence of these two holidays is special because both commemorate freedom and gratitude. Another perk of this rare holiday combination means two food-centric meals merge into one delicious menu that honors both celebrations.

Smooth, creamy and custardy, a flan is a delectable dessert to enjoy at the end of a special meal, especially Thanksgiving or Christmas. But just looking at that photo with the irresistible baked-sugar glaze on top, I assumed flan would be tricky to make at home—until I tried this healthy recipe for Flan de Queso. (That’s translated as Caramel Cream Cheese Custard, just so there’s no confusion).

Next time you open your pantry, take a closer look at the packaging of your food.

You probably see a cacophony of health claims and healthy–sounding words: High in protein! With omega–3 fatty acids! Contains probiotics! High in calcium! Whole wheat! High fiber! Gluten–free! All–natural! Organic!

When it comes to food, “creamy” is such an enticing word, isn’t it? It promises deliciousness and conjures up satisfying comfort food.

Without using any heavy cream, this recipe delivers on velvety goodness while being kind to your waistline. In fact, it’s even heart-healthy!

This vegetable-packed minestrone soup recipe is inspired by a popular Weight Watchers vegetable soup recipe. It makes a big pot of soup, so keep some in the refrigerator for up to 5 days and freeze the rest of the vegetable minestrone soup in single-serve portions. That way you always have an easy, delicious vegetable soup to start your meal or to eat for lunch. Think of this vegetable minestrone recipe as a starting point for other healthy soup variations, too: toss in leftover chopped cooked chicken or whole-wheat pasta or brown rice to make it more satisfying.
