Cooking with Chef Kathy


Skinny Avocado Pizza

Skinny and by skinny I mean puff pasty thin crust, baked with pizza pesto, which is a burst of gazillion flavors such as garlic, cashews, cilantro, cumin, turmeric just to name a few.

Sweet, zesty, savory, and a little gooey. You name it. Topped with avocado, red tomatoes, and red onion.

Pizza Toppings

Balsamic Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Rather than frying them, these brussels sprouts are roasted at a high temp so that wonderful caramelization develops and they’re so fast and easy to make.


Sweet Soft Cherry Bread with Cherry-Almond Glaze

This is a soft, sweet, and easy quickbread to make. It's perfect for Valentine's Day.

The glaze is optional but adds so much extra cherry flavor and I highly recommend it.

Both the bread and glaze contain almond extract, which is a perfect complement to cherries.

Healthy 30 Minute Sriracha Teriyaki Meatball Bowls

Healthy 30 Minute Sriracha Teriyaki Meatball Bowls. This recipe is fast, fiercely flavorful, and fun to make! It’s win-win din-din all around.


For the meatballs:

Mason Jar Chicken Cordon Bleu

This isn't "canning" with hot pots of boiling water.

Assembling ingredients in mason jars and cooking in the jars.

Finished jars can go in the fridge for breakfast/ lunch/ dinner/ snacks that are handy for later.

Reuse the containers over and over. Always have a fresh meal handy (these don't go in pantry or freezer, it's FRESH food).

Garlic Parmesan Roasted Shrimp

The easiest roasted shrimp cocktail ever made with just 5 min prep. Yes, it’s just that easy! All you need is olive oil, garlic, freshly grated Parmesan and some pantry spices. That’s it.


Taco Stuffed Peppers

The cheesy meat mixture was stuffed into the pepper bowls together with very generous amount of sour cream. After baking, the stuffed peppers were topped with more cheese and avocado slices. A touch of freshly ground black pepper finished off the dish nicely.

Brown Sugar Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Glaze

Cinnamon rolls are pretty much the ultimate comfort food! They smell incredible, they taste like heaven, and they make everyone happy.

Soft-Baked White Chocolate Chip Cranberry Cookies

Perfectly soft and thick white chocolate cranberry cookies. One of my favorite flavor combinations ever!

Making your baked cookies soft, thick, and chewy has never been easier. Add a touch of cornstarch to your cookie dough and prepared to be amazed.

White chocolate and dried cranberries are an impeccable combination, and these cookies are LOADED with both.
