Posted for the Central and South America stop on the Summer '08 Zaar World Tour. Chicharrones are a popular fried snack in Peru, and some chefs there are serving them with quinoa in the coating. This is a lighter version, using the technique of oven-frying to keep the coating from soaking up oil. The quinoa has a wonderful crunch, even without frying. Creator Robin Asbell used red quinoa for a dramatic look (this is a stunning photo in "The New Whole Grains Cookbook" and I'm sure a Zaar photographer can take an equally beautiful one using red or regular quinoa).

Recipe #309310

From the Essential Best Foods Cookbook: Recipes Featuring the Healthiest and Most Delicious Foods. Add an Indian flourish by swirling in cumin seeds sizzled briefly in hot oil. You can use additional chopped cilantro if you prefer to keep it practically fat free.

Recipe #330176

Erin Go Bragh!!!

Recipe #290151

From Nancy Clark. Cook time is the time for the bars to harden.

Recipe #283364

The Irish Pub Cookbook says a similar mousse using Guinness is served at the Guinness Storehouse at St. James' Gate in Dublin. Top it with a white chocolate mousse for a look-alike of a creamy pint.

Recipe #269057

Millet is an ancient African staple food, always served soft enough to eat with the fingers. In this recipe from "The New Whole Grains Cookbook", you infuse the grains with spices and aromatics before cooking for maximum flavor, and the sauteing step helps keep the grains separate. The brilliant golden millet can be replaced with quicker-cooking whole wheat couscous or even rice. The cooking time doesn't include chilling time.

Recipe #309363

The vibrant green hue will impress your friends and family that you're being OH so healthy, but close your eyes and taste a strawberry-banana milkshake! The easy way to get three of your daily fruits and veggies - both times I made this I felt great afterwards! These green drinks are expensive at smoothie places and the grocery store, so why not make your own at home - no juicer necessary. Originally I created this for the Ready Set Cook #11 contest but it was too ugly too enter.

Recipe #289081

This is my favorite thing to order at Smokey Bones, a place popular for BBQ and watching sports. Darden Restaurants closed a lot of the locations and sold the rest to another company in 2008. This is my own copycat version of the salad, not an official restaurant recipe. This is very filling even as a vegetarian salad without the chicken or shrimp; at Smokey Bones they give you an unrealistically huge portion - making this recipe only serve four. Use any dressing you like; I really love Recipe#318828 however it's not an exact replicate of Smokey Bones' dressing.

Recipe #325828

Inspired by my favorite appetizer at the Chili's restaurant chain but these are baked,not fried. Two full egg rolls per person makes a nice dinner for T.V. night. For a dinner party you can also cut them in thick slices sushi-style. These can be frozen before they're cooked or afterwards.

Recipe #283090

I was surprised to see this traditional Southern drink wasn't already posted here, except alcoholic and low sugar versions. These refreshing drinks are popular at the Arnold Palmer Invitational Golf Tournament.

Recipe #292452

My sister Shawn is famous for these enchiladas, and her husband Rob makes the killer margaritas to match. My husband and I like them with Sangria. It's the ideal entree for dinner guests because it can be completely prepared in advance. You can substitute whatever meat you have...ground chicken or turkey, steak, shredded pork, Krab, etc. as well as any creamed soups. I was even out of sour cream and substituted fat free cottage cheese which worked fine. Be creative and please share your ideas here!

Recipe #164392

Mmmm...serve with crusty rolls to soak up the juices! This quick version of Puerto Rican Stew from Eating Well Magazine uses tilapia or any white flaky fish. The traditional dish uses bacalao, or salted dried codfish.

Recipe #251196

Take a trip to India tonight! Adapted from Looneyspoons: Low-Fat Food Made Fun, this flavorful Vegan dish serves 4-6 as a one-pot meal or 6-8 as a side dish.

Recipe #326579

From the ski resort at Lake Louise in Alberta, Canada.

Recipe #310390

An alcoholic version of the Arnold Palmer, a refreshing drink made with half lemonade and half iced tea.

Recipe #292565

This "dinner in a bowl" is good for you and your pocketbook. Two colors of cabbage entice your eyes, and fill you up — one chicken breast feeds the whole family!

Recipe #336758

A recipe from nutritionist Tara Gidus.

Recipe #283357

Creamy, cheesy, spicy...and cooks up easily in your crockpot even if you don't have a kitchen. At your desk at work? Yes! Anywhere with an electrical outlet! This is not one of those "dump and go" recipes as you can't leave your crockpot unattended, but a tastier alternative to boxed mac and cheese. It is not, however, better texture or taste than from-scratch mac and cheese on the stove. This recipe was created for a crockpot cooking contest and truthfully, you will love it even more it you make the recipe in a pot on the stove. You can always transfer to a crockpot for party-style serving. Enjoy!

Recipe #330913

A healthier rendition of the popular Indian dish, that doesn't use gobs of butter and tons of heavy cream. Adapted from Eat, Shrink & Be Merry!

Recipe #243805

The ingredients are very sinful but you can't go wrong with this. When layered this is very impressive.
