Our Lady of Weight Loss

We are visiting my 93 year-young mother on Mother’s Day. While she lives along, drives and is A-okay in every way, she no longer cooks! (Not that she was much of a cook to being with … oops, don’t tell her that I said that.) Anyway, I was agonizing over lunch. What to cook up and bring with us? I was reading recipes on the Internet for hours and hours and then it dawned on me – the biggest ‘duh’ moment ever. “For goodness sake,” I said to myself, “You’ve written two fantastic books that are chock-a-block full of recipes.”Here follow some of my personal favorite recipes from Our Lady of Weight Loss: Miraculous and Motivational Musings from the Patron Saint of Permanent Fat Removal as well as All Is Forgiven, Move On: Our Lady of Weight Loss’s 101 Fat Burning Steps on Your Journey to Sveltesville. These recipes are beyond good; they are GREAT … and they are basically one-bowl, easy to whip up recipes with easy to find ingredients. They are “to die for,” as we like to say in New York City!Simple Salmon SaladIngredients:1 lb. Salmon fillet, poached and cooled to room temperature2 celery stalks; finely chopped.1/2 red onion, peeled, finely sliced2 tablespoons capers (strain out the pickling juice) (I love salty capers; you might want to put 1 tablespoon in and see how it tastes before adding the 2nd spoonful.)juice from 1 freshly squeezed lemon2 tablespoons, fresh dill, choppedsalt n’ pepper to taste!Directions:Combine all ingredients in bowl and serve, on a nice 7 grain or whole wheat bread (read the label; no high fructose corn syrup please!) Alternatively, on an artfully arranged bed of lettuce.

Let it chill overnight. Something yummy and crunchy to look forward to!!!*Plump Your Raisins (not thyself)Place raisins in bowl and add enough warm tap water to cover them. Let them sit for a few minutes, absorbing the water, as they happily and peacefully plump up. After they are sufficiently plump, carefully and with love squeeze out excess water!

(Jsalt n’ pepper to tasteDirections: Take hard-boiled eggs and cut the long way. Remove yokes from eggs and put in medium sized bowl. Add reduced-fat mayo. Mix in the rest of the ingredients until smooth and yummy.Then take a teaspoon of egg mixture and neatly place in the whites. (Do your best NOT to lick your fingers!)If you like, sprinkle a little bit of paprika on top! The red looks so nice against the yellow. Very artistic!
