Lighter Shrimp Scampi from Cleo Coyle

Print Friendly and PDF

This is my lighter take on the traditional version of shrimp scampi, and I use the term "traditional" loosely. Why? Because you will not find "shrimp scampi" in a cookbook of authentic Italian cuisine. This dish was born in America. When you order it in a restaurant, you'll usually be served a gratin of large shrimp that have been split, brushed with an obscene amount of garlic butter and then broiled.

This scampi recipe is not from any particular menu, it's simply my improvised, lighter version. The meal is satisfying yet healthy. Garlic, olive oil, fresh parsley, and seafood: all good stuff. You can make it even healthier by using a spinach, whole wheat, or low glycemic index pasta or even zoodles. When Marc and I make it, we practically inhale bowls of it. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do...

Almond Milk Custard with Roasted Blueberries from Cleo Coyle's Coffeehouse Mystery Once Upon a Grind #dairyfree #lowcalorie

Print Friendly and PDF

This easy, low-calorie stovetop custard can be served warm on a cold night, or chilled for a refreshing summer dessert. It's not only delicious, it’s guilt-free because it's made with wholesome, nutritional ingredients like almond milk, eggs, and the superfood blueberries. 
Click for Cleo's Free Recipe PDF.

We love how the lemon zest and vanilla work together with the nut milk to produce the light and lovely flavor of a homemade pound cake, and the roasted blueberries make an elegant topping. 

Why roast them? Because it brings out a "blueberry pie" sweetness without additional sugar. The roasting also creates a softer, cooked texture, which beautifully complements the finished custard.

How to Roast a Chicken with Lime and Rosemary by author Cleo Coyle

Print Friendly and PDF


Roasting a chicken is a basic cooking skill that's easy to master, and Marc and I are happy to share one of our favorite ways to do it. This recipe is wonderfully versatile, too. Feel free to replace the lime and rosemary we love in this recipe with any citrus or herb you prefer or have on hand. As for our choices...

Typically, you'll see rosemary paired with lemon in chicken recipes, but we've always been bigger fans of limes. Their tangy, bright taste brings a lively and lovely flavor to a gently roasted bird. We hope you enjoy the combination as much as we do.
