    Recipe #373844

    This is my son's favorite meal. I make it with shrimp for him for his birthday every year. GREAT for company because it is so easy and yet taste wonderful! I cook this in the microwave, but I'm sure you could do it on the stove too. Times are what work in my microwave. Please use your own good judgment on times to use in your microwave. (In my quest to eat healthier, I now make it with light butter, light cream and reduced fat Parmesan cheese. It still tastes wonderful, but there isn't any guilt!) PLEASE NOTE! This is an "authentic" Alfredo sauce recipe! Real Alfredo sauce *only* contains butter, cream, Parmesan cheese and pepper. It will be thin and there is no garlic in it! If you want a thicker sauce or one with garlic like modern restaurants serve, please look elsewhere! Recipe #52892 and Recipe #8596 are two good places to start.

    Recipe #76

    I fall back on this recipe when I need some chicken noodle soup prepared in under 30 minutes. I prefer to broil my chicken tenders about 6 minutes per side or until juices run clear. This produces the moistest, tenderest chicken, in my opinion. I serve it with Recipe #96447.

    Recipe #210534

    I am tired of the cost and similar taste of all the canned soups out there, but I wanted something that was almost as easy to fix for lunch. As an added plus, my son said it was the best vegetable soup he had ever had! I've used all the combinations of the 3 types of vegetable mixes and have liked them all. I like adding the chickpeas for my protein, but the family prefers the chicken.

    Recipe #447640

    A tasty, low cal breakfast. I like cooking the veggies a little before adding the egg as it releases the flavors more.

    Recipe #455217

    I have found that it works great to make the "filling" up a head of time. Just prep and put in the refrigerator until needed. This is one of our favorite meals. NOTE: The friend who gave me this recipe uses canned cooked chicken. I'm sure the other precooked chicken tenders they sell now would also work.

    Recipe #3978

    A quick, easy meal with lots of flavor. Was served this at a friend's house when we were a guest there. Feel free to increase the curry powder if you like it hotter. This is very mild curry. You can also substitute cooked shrimp, lobster, or real crab for the imitation crab meat. Serve over Saffron Rice.

    Very filling, tasty, and easy to make. For best results, buy a good, very smokey bacon from a butcher shop.

    Recipe #12662

    You can do this chicken in advance and serve it cold. It is a quick easy recipe that turns out nice moist chicken

    Recipe #10465

    Can it get any easier? This chicken is so tender and moist! From a French's ad in Family Circle Magazine. Makes a tasty meal when there is little time to cook. Also would make a good sandwich. ***NOTES*** 3/1/2009, I just saw this recipe printed in a new magazine and they now have you add one tablespoon of flour to the crushed French Fried onions. It helps the pieces adhere to the chicken better. 10/19/2010, one of the reviewers offered a new tip: substitute a flavored mustard for the egg if you enjoy the tanginess of mustard. Great idea!

    Recipe #209181

    Healthier and tastier way to serve fish. I have used flounder, catfish, grouper, perch and tilapia with great results.If your fish is not getting crispy try broiling it for a minute or so to get it crispy. Oh and parmesan from a can is ok but treat yourself and use freshly grated. You will be oh so happy you did.

    Recipe #151785

    This is one of those "from the dietitian" deals. I don't know where she gets this stuff, but it's pretty darn good. The hospital where she works always has good food and I actually don't mind eating there. But then again, when you're in the hospital on a 1200 cal. diet instead of your totally flexible at-home carb counting diet, you'll eat just about anything except the baked hamburger steak.

    Recipe #152742

    My new addiction! Tried it at a potluck supper and just had to get the recipe.

    Mmmm good! Beef dip from Cooking Light.

    Recipe #16948

    We made this the other night and loved it! I think next time we'll double the sauce...it's SO good...

    Recipe #834

    A fast dinner that is tasty and satisfying.

    Recipe #100309

    This delicious ham is a nice break from the burgers and chicken we do. The glaze is so good!

    Recipe #26792

    Quick and easy! Enjoyed by kids and grown-ups alike. When you're looking for something tastier than plain burgers. My own creation.

    Recipe #74532

    Our DD and SIL recently came down for a visit. As a birthday treat, they prepared supper. They served this delicious steak as their entree along with Amarillo Cheese Fries & Dip and a wonderful tossed salad. (Prep. time does not include refrigeration time).

    My ex husband always did steaks like this. It is so tasty, that I cannot eat a steak any other way. I am basing servings on my family. Prep time does not include the marinating of the steaks.
