Steak Kabobs....

Okay we are 3 days into the New Year so how are the Resolution's going for Ya??
Me, I stopped making them year's ago, why you may ask, since I am a A personality type I already had them on a get it done list...:):):) Yep sometimes Anal retentive about things, but oh well we are all made different....

So in keeping with my get done list I am posting this year's first food blog and it is a goodie...

Like steak? who doesn't, but you get tired of it just plopped on a plate, so I made these Kabob's for a client of mine, and added some crunchies too, like zucchini chunks, Portebello Mushroom's, Bell Peppers, then poured a Ginger/Garlic Marinade over it all and baked them @ 350 for app. 35-40 min. till med and veggies were soft. Whala you add some rice, or noodles and you have a complete dinner in under a hour, I bet you are spinning around in your kitchens now saying maybe this year won't be so bad after all, I am so Happy I could be of help,, remember I am The Diva of all that is Delicious and Healthy, so keep reading my blogs each week and please share them with your many other foodie friends, who doesn't like more fellow foodies and friends. Always a Diva Gianna

Beef Stew!!

December 17, 2014


Beef Stew

The cold brings out the best soups and stews season...Brrrrrrr! My beef stew is delicious full of flavor and low in calories. Can't beat that with a stick...

I usually use beef chuck roast and cut it up myself because buying stew meat costs more because of the convenience of it being cut up. 

Ingredients:
Yukon Gold Potatoes 1 to 2 lbs peeled and quartered
Celery 1 pkg. washed and quarter. ( Do not use the ends or the leaves in stew it will sour it.)
Carrots ( Pre- Boil ) so they are 1/2 ...

Stuffed Pork Chops

Pork the other white meat? Yes indeed, and it has as many ways to fix it as chicken, with less calories too.

This dish pictured here is one that I created for my clients, it is a Apricot& Coconut Rum Marinade with a apricot stuffing.
Now you may think low calorie no way, Yes Way as the kids say, I make the marinade with a all organic no sugar marmalade and a 1/2 cup of coconut rum, add a little olive oil and garlic and stir all together, brush the pork chops with it after they...

Greek Chicken!!!

October 12, 2014


Greek Chicken

Being half Greek & half Italian allows me to combine seasonings that add flavor to all my dishes. Both my parents were self -taught Chef's and very good ones. My Dad was a Personal Chef to our local parish out East and cooked for the Cardinal himself, my Mom was the go to person for family meals in their restaurants.

Cooking and creating new recipes has always been in my blood and I find myself doing it in my head when I see something I like but want to change it up a bit to make ...
