Now, you can now have your cake (or chicken Parm!) and eat it, too, because I’ve healthi-fied every delicious indulgence under the sun — from vegetable lo mein and chicken enchiladas to chocolate milkshakes and peanut butter cups — in my new cookbook From Junk Food to Joy Food. Check out my makeovers for mac and cheese (find my recipe here), Buffalo wings and cauliflower in the videos below, and get cookin’.
