Spinach Turnover Recipe

15 Dec

Spinach Turnover Recipe is a flavorful, healthy, filling dish that everyone is sure to love.  If you have some picky eaters, this is a great way to get them to eat their veggies.

Recently, I’ve been watching old Julia Child cooking videos from her TV show “The French Chef”.  I came across this recipe for Spinach Turnover, and instantly wanted to make one.  Now, I don’t own any of Julia Child’s cookbooks, something I intend on  fixing soon, so I had to write down this recipe straight from the video.  It is kind of a long recipe, but it’s not too complicated to make, and it tastes delicious!  If you should have any questions about the recipe, you can easily search for Julia Child’s cooking videos.  This one in particular is found on PBS.com and is called “The Spinach Twins”.  The video should help clear up anything I did not make clear in the recipe.

Dijon Mustard Filets

2 Dec

Dijon Mustard Filets are delicious, low-fat, low-calorie and cook up fast.  Fish is a wonderful addition to your diet and your health, the perfect weeknight meal.

I love when I find delicious low-fat, low-calorie and easy to make recipes.  Dijon Mustard Filets delivers all of the above.  Eating fish is one of the best things you can do do improve your diet and health.  Our household doesn’t eat fish nearly enough, and most of that is due to the fact that I can be a bit picky when it comes to choosing the right fish to cook.  I’ve had the privilege of eating the freshest fish, straight from the ocean, so I sometimes I have issues with the fish sold in supermarkets.  If I can’t find some decent fresh fish at the counter, I usually buy frozen wild caught Alaskan fish.  My favorite fish, which work wonderful with many recipes including this one, are Halibut, Cod, and Petrale Sole.  Not only do these fish taste great and are easy to cook, but they don’t make your house smell fishy when cooking them.
