Delicious Bowls: Marinated Sirloin Tips with Sweet Potato Rosti (Chipotle Mayo and Pecans)

Stack the disks of  sweet potato rosti, drizzle with the chipotle mayo and sprinkle with toasted pecans (torn basil and tarragon as garnish)
Add some roasted mushrooms and vine tomatoes - fresh tarragon and basil- This was a really great dinner - and low carb!

Brush with the same marinade as the meat before roasting

When we were living in New York City (in the late 80's) we discovered a wonderful restaurant called Trixie's.  It was the first time we had sweet potato fries and we loved them.  The Trixie's fries were topped with mayonnaise and sprinkled with walnuts.

Delicious Bowls: Sweet Pea, Halloumi, Smoked Pancetta and Almond Salad (Fig and Black Olive Tapenade)

These two ingredients make a wonderfully balanced tapenade

This is an easy weekday meal that I make often - leftovers are great for lunch!  With the summer just around the corner, it is great to bring to a pot luck or for a barbecue.  I added grilled portobello mushrooms to make this a heartier meal but they are completely optional.  The salad is great on its own and completely low carb.

Delicious Bowls - Rosemary Nut Crusted Halibut with Fennel Orange Salad (Tarragon, Relish Tartar)

Tastes like Spring!

It has been a while since I posted recipes and that is because I am in a bit of a transition process.  I am currently experimenting with a low carb diet.   I have had success in the past with eating low carb and with Spring just around the corner, thought it might be a good time to put it to the test once again.  So far so good! - I feel great!
