It's true - the kitchen is the heart of the home. Ever notice how people always gather there?Whether baking treats,making dinner or spending time with family and friends, the kitchen ismy favorite place to be. Sincemy day job is Consumer Test Kitchen ProjectManager for the NestlÈ Test Kitchens, you can bet I love to stir things up. This column letsme pass along to you some ofmy best recipes, tips and baking secrets.

New Year's resolutions can be tricky to keep sometimes, especially when it comes to eating healthier. For a lot of folks, that means eatingmore salads and veggies sticks - which can get boring after a while. But the good news is that there are plenty of wonderful ways to use healthful ingredients tomake recipes you'll really enjoy.

Here are a few of the ways I've found to add good-for-you foods to my menus:

Fruit

Whole and cut-up fruit adds dietary fiber as well as vitamins to yourmeal. Canned fruit is fine, just make sure to use fruit canned in 100 percent juice or water, rather than syrup.

• For breakfast, top some creamy, low-fat Greek yogurt with sliced strawberries, peaches or whole blueberries. Add a little drizzle of honey for a touch of sweetness.

• Jazz up a salad withmandarin oranges, pineapple chunks or halved grapes.

• Instead of a rich dessert, try baked apples or pears, or a refreshing fruit salad.

Vegetables

Eating vegetables with a wide range of colors gives your body more nutrients, such as fiber, folate, potassiumand vitamins A and C. So have fun eating a rainbow of veggies such as sweet potatoes, corn, spinach and eggplant.

•Make a veggie pizza topped with green peppers, onions, tomatoes andmushrooms.

• Add shredded carrots or zucchini intomeatloaf or pasta sauces.

• Plan some vegetablemain dishmeals. Stir fries, soups, and veggie lasagnas are just a few ways to have a heartymeal with healthful benefits. There are plenty of ways to enjoy eating well. This recipe, for example, uses whole wheat tortillas tomake quiche cups instead of pie crusts. And by using lowfat evaporatedmilk instead of regularmilk, you double the calcium and protein,making even your parties healthier.
