Holiday Dinner! // Cook With Me // Healthy Cooking!

Holiday season is the time when we all gather together with friends and family to share love and warmth. That’s when we enjoy a lot of food and stories. Who said that you can’t serve a delicious and healthy meal during the holiday season?! I want to share with you one of my favorite dinner recipes which I put together; it is light, full of flavor, and is so easy to make. The combination of Cornish hen, colorful and sweet potatoes, and garlic-lemon roasted zucchini, makes this dish so delicious, nutritious and healthy. And, besides, it’s all served hot. All that is left is to add a good cup of hot tea! Any leftovers would make a great lunch the next day.
