Everyone loves comfort food, and Ellie’s got recipes that are good to eat and really good for you too.

It’s comfort food made very healthy and extremely delicious.
Food and family belong in the same sentence, but sometimes the old favorite recipes could use a modern makeover. Ellie’s updating some great classics--chop suey, sloppy joes and double chocolate pudding pie--with all the love intact, just more healthy and even more delicious.
There is no need to slave away in the kitchen to make great tasting meals. Ellies cooking fuss free--a great Thai style halibut and coconut curry, pasta with red pepper and feta sauce, artichoke and arugula salad, and Raspberry Fool, the simplest, yummiest dessert ever. No fuss has never been so easy.
Ellie works her magic on everyone’s all-time favorite recipes, making them healthier and more delicious than ever. Great American classics like Cowboy Steak with fries, grilled onions and tomato cucumber relish, and oven-friend chicken with collard greens. Delicious down-home goodness that’s as good for you as it tastes.
Ellie takes time out in the kitchen to create leisurely laid-back food: herby Greek-style stuffed peppers, cornmeal crusted tart with layers of roasted vegetables, and crunchy pecan sandie biscuits. Delicious "time on your hands" food that's healthy and delicious.
Ellie plays culinary cupid and shares her favorite romantic recipes: figs with ricotta pistachio drizzled with honey, green herb dip with crunchy crudites, heart-shaped portobello panini, cherry almond chocolate clusters and you-and-me chicken pot pies.

Ellie makes super-fast and super-easy suppers: chicken in mango barbecue sauce, Southwestern cole slaw, tortilla pizza two ways, and shrimp salad with cucumber and mint. Healthy meals in minutes to eat with friends or family any day of the week.
Just because its good for you doesnt mean it has to break the bank. Whether its a party for friends, midweek supper or dessert to share. Ellie shares her budget-busting recipes to suit any occasion. Salmon cakes with creamy ginger sauce, Asian-style three-bean salad, penne with roasted tomatoes, garlic and white beans, and a pear crumble. Delicious healthy recipes that work on any budget.
One for now and one for later means double delicious. A spectacular meal of herbed roast served with roast cauliflower and broccoli with garlic heads thats transformed into a sweet potato hash with poached eggs and for dessert plum tart with almond pastry. Delicious healthy food for today and tomorrow.
Ellie shares her two time-crunch strategies to stay on the healthy straight and narrow – in advance and in a flash: tasty super-fast chicken satay with spicy peanut sauce, sesame stir-fried greens served with fragrant jasmine rice. And to stash in the refrigerator, delicious make-in-advance portobello lasagne rollups and easy tomato sauce. Two perfectly delicious, perfectly healthy balanced meals that make it to the table fast.
Even when time is tight you don't have to skip meals. Ellie makes three delicious meals and a high-energy snack to see you through the day. Broccoli, mushroom and cheese breakfast strata, spinach salad with warm bacon and apple cider dressing, succotash with grilled scallops and parsley drizzle, and a cherry and walnut glove-compartment snack. Easy, perfectly balanced recipes to get you through am to pm.
Why order takeout when you can make your own equally delicious dishes made in the same time as it takes to arrive at your door?
