Eat– for Good Health

My husband Gerry says I like to be thin more than most people.  He knows me well, but I’m human.  Sometimes I need to drop five pounds.  Like now, before I read my latest release, A Brand New Address, at Lady Jane’s Salon Orange County (September 8) and take part in a book signing on Friday, October 3rd.  Here is a delicious side dish– SPINACH WITH PINE NUTS AND RAISINS:

spinach recipe


  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons golden raisins
  • 1 tablespoon pine nuts
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 10-ounce bag fresh spinach,  tough stems removed
  • 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon shaved Parmesan cheese
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste

Directions:  Heat oil in a large non-stick skillet or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add raisins, pine nuts and garlic; cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add spinach and cook, stirring, until just wilted, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in vinegar and salt. Serve immediately, sprinkled with Parmesan and pepper.

    Kathleen, I’m seeing spinach on menus everywhere! Your recipe looks delicious. By the way, congrats on your book. I read A BRAND NEW ADDESS is a top seller in the new adult sweet romantic suspense category!
