Eggs Florentine For Two

Learn More About This Recipe +

Healthy eating in the new year doesn't need to be tasteless and boring-this baked version of eggs florentine tastes like a deconstructed version of spanakopita and has to be one of the tastiest things I've eaten in a long time. Garlicky spinach, salty feta and creamy eggs are a fantastic way to ring in 2015!  Instead of using the traditional hollandaise sauce which can be a little trickier (and calorie filled!)  to make, this quick and easy cheese sauce can be whipped up in only a few minutes with 1% milk and only a bit of Parmesan.

Serve these eggs with toast or a soft fresh bun to sop up any bits of yolk and if you are feeling extra decadent, bacon on the side is always a good choice. This dish can be easily doubled or tripled, just use a bigger dish to bake it in!

Spinach and eggs have never tasted so good.

Pasta Carbonara

When the weather is chilly, sometimes you need something warm, filling, and a little indulgent to fill you up. This pasta is perfect when you only have bits of things left in your fridge and easily halved to serve two people. What I love about it is that the dish is so easy to change-swap out the bacon for ham or some spicy salami, add some sauteed mushrooms or green peas and skip the green onion. It's all up to you, really. Make it your own! The only thing that is non-negotiable is the cheese; make sure to use freshly grated Parmesan cheese, not the sawdust-like stuff in a can for the best results.

Candy Cane Kisses

Learn More About This Recipe +

Sometimes you have leftover bits of chocolate or candy cane and need a way to use them up. These meringues are light, delicious, and flour-free! They are actually really easy even though they may look complicated. The trick is to use gel paste food coloring that you paint/smear onto the inside of the icing bag. Whip up a bunch for your New Year's party or serve them with chocolate ice cream for a fantastic treat.

Before you start, make sure that your mixing bowl and beaters are very clean and free of any oil or grease. This is very essential when making meringue, because any speck of grease will keep the egg whites from whipping up. This is why it's important to use peppermint extract instead of oil in this recipe.

Smearing food coloring paste inside the piping bag makes for pretty red stripes in your meringue, but you can also skip this step if you wish. If you're feeling adventurous, you can try using red on one side and green on the other, or green instead of red. A small paint brush or butter knife dipped in the food coloring paste works really well for this. Store the baked dry meringues for about a week in an airtight container, if they'll last that long!

Light and minty, these are a great way to use up egg whites

Gougeres

Learn More About This Recipe +

Light and cheesy, these little bites are fantastic for a holiday party - and the best part is, not only are they easy to make but you can make them ahead and tuck them away in your freezer, ready to heat at a moment's notice. Hailing from French cuisine, gougeres created from choux dough, which is used to make eclairs. This version, however, is savoury and contains cheese. Most versions contain emmental or gruyere but you can use sharp Cheddar or as in this version, smoked gouda. Try serving these tasty bites alongside soups or stews, eat them on their own, or take them to a holiday party as an appetizer. The hard part will be keeping yourself from eating them all first!
