    I love hummus and this recipe lets me enjoy it more often without the higher calorie count of some recipes. Serve with warm pita bread and sliced veggies for a nutritious snack.

    Recipe #427554

    From an old Gourmet magazine, this dish serves 16 but can be cut in half to make a family side dish that will last for leftovers!

    Recipe #428627

    This is one of my favorite breakfasts. If you haven't tried Greek style yogurt, it is thick and creamy even the non-fat tastes rich. Paired with granola, honey and a handful of fruit, it's a perfect start for your day!

    Recipe #427550

    These are the best I've ever tasted...but be careful...one is amazing, two even better, but better halt there!

    Recipe #283258

    This recipe goes with fish entrees, has a delicious lemon zip and is easy to make! From Cooking Light.

    Recipe #427438

    Simple ingredients and the addition of feta cheese make this salad unique.

    Recipe #286405

    This is the time of year to make corn salad and this is a tasty and easy to make version. If you have the time, fresh corn is fantastic and I have also made this with a bottled Caesar dressing.

    Recipe #304459

    Delicious chunky cookies that are easy to make and disappear in a snap! My long-time friend Barb brought them to our New Year's Eve party and they were the hands-down favorite of a huge buffet table. Cook's note: The pretzels should be about the size of the chocolate chips, not pulverized. You want to taste bits of pretzel as you munch. This is a crunchy cookie. I use a food processor and just pulse until the desired size is achieved.

    Recipe #275652

    These are easy with the help of your bread machine and taste way better than the store bought rolls. Directions are given for a 1 1/2 lb. machine. Note: in my photo the rolls are pictured with "Recipe #287863", which is delicious! 6/20/10 note: Many reviewers have noted the dough seems sticky. I always watch my machine as it starts to knead the dough and if it is looking sticky at the time, add more flour then. However, I am changing the recipe from 3 Cups flour to 3 1/4 cups flour today so definitely don't add additional flour unless the dough looks too moist.

    Recipe #296559

    This goes nicely with my Chicken Breasts Con Rajas or any south of the border meal. I have recently been to a talk by Michael Pollan author of "In Defense of Food," who advocates getting away from processed food and today as I was stopping to grab a box of prepackaged Mexican Rice mix I looked at the ingredients and realized this is exactly what he means. This recipe is quick, fresh and definitely not full of preservatives! In a pinch and when tomatoes are out of season, I use canned chopped tomatoes and it still tastes great! Happy Cooking!

    Recipe #288256

    Refried beans made simple in a crock pot...a great and low fat alternative to canned beans. If you like variety, black beans can be substituted for part of the pinto beans. Note: Since reviewers commented on the salt, I've reduced the amount. If you think this may still be too much salt for you, add it at the end and to your personal taste. Enjoy!

    Recipe #290034

    This recipe uses southwest ingredients to make a tasty and tender porkchop that is still low in calories. It is also easy to put into the marinade in the morning and simply cook later in the day for dinner.

    Recipe #370278

    With the yogurt this is a delicious and refreshing summer drink. Choose lime flavored yogurt or other tropical-flavored yogurts are also tasty! It also makes an excellent summer cocktail without the yogurt and with the addition of rum. Serve in margarita glasses for a festive touch.

    Recipe #370256

    This is a quick, weeknight version of chicken curry and uses the meat from a store-bought rotisserie roasted chicken to save time.

    Recipe #289110

    An easy to make green bundt cake...perfect for Christmas or St. Patrick's Day and delicious any time!!

    Recipe #288501

    The islands meet Mexico in these wonderful summer libations!

    Recipe #373409

    Puréed fresh corn adds unique sweetness to this dessert. Tossing the raspberries with a small amount of flour prevents them from sinking to the bottom of the cake. From the July 2002 Cooking Light Magazine.

    Recipe #307797

    This rice is colorful and tasty and a little more special than an everyday side dish. It goes well with lamb, ham or pork.

    Recipe #283864

    This is family favorite sauce. It cooks on the stove a couple of hours and makes the kitchen smell delicious. It is thick and filling, just add a salad and slice of garlic bread for a complete meal. If I am in a rush, I use frozen chopped onion and fresh garlic in a jar. Note: you can vary the size cans of tomatoes and sauce to your taste.

    Recipe #281612

    These are the foolproof garlic mashed potatoes that everyone loves. This recipe appeared in a 2002 Sunset Magazine article. If the potatoes are done early, cover and keep warm in a 200 degree oven.
