Oh my goodness.  I am in love with Giada De Laurentiis’ new website Giadzy.

You have to register, but I really don’t mind that at all especially with all of her new content.  She has a lot of different topics.  I love the crispiness of the site. Clean. Simple.

The recipes are great too.  I can’t wait to purchase the cheese for this:

10 Minute Cheese Platter

from Giada’s site:

I’m a big believer that cheese platters don’t have to be complicated or expensive. In fact, it can be the easiest part of your party prep! Just follow this simple recipe: one hard cheese (like parmesan) + one semi-hard cheese (like cheddar) + one soft cheese (like goat or brie), then dress it up with some simple crackers and a few dried fruits or nuts from the bulk bin. The magic is in the presentation, so feel free to crumble some of the cheeses, cut them into spears or even roll the soft cheese in black pepper for extra wow-factor. It’ll be the easiest thing you do all day!Giada makes something so simple seem so elegant, and yummy.

I can’t wait to try it.

NoBloPoMo 2012 – Day 8


I love watching the Food Network. Love it.  If I am home,  it is on,  if only for background noise.  I was watching it the other day, and Giada came on.  She is a wonderful cook and teacher.  I think this because, after watching her show on a Frittata, and how simple it was, I thought I could modify it for my Prism diet.

Giada’s recipe called for 8 egg whites and cream…  Giada de Laurentiis frittata recipe 

My version:

1 cup Egg Beaters whipped
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese shredded
2 cups Arugula fresh
1 green onion chopped
3 oz smoked salmon chopped (be easy not to break up the salmon)
Salt (be careful due to the smoked salmon and Parmesan cheese) and Pepper to taste
Pam cooking spray

Heat a non-stick skillet (use a pan you can place in the oven) to medium -high heat.  Also, turn your oven on to 350 degrees. 

Spray your pan, and saute the green onion for about a minute.  Then add the Arugula and wilt (saute for about 3-4 minutes, don’t move it around too much).  I poured the eggs (whipped) in gently not to disturb the Arugula.  When the egg is slightly cooked around the edges, place the salmon in gently.  Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over the egg.  Add some black pepper.  Place in the oven to finish off the cooking for about 15-20 minutes or until the top is golden brown.

You can have this entire Frittata for 280 calories (if you use the 80 cal smoked salmon 3oz and egg beaters)!!!

Not the best of photo’s…but you can still see all of the goodness.
