Very Good 4.6/5
(40 ratings)

Cookbook creator says: Good old-fashioned cooking that men especially will love. Hubby had seconds and he's a picky eater! Turn up to 500 degrees last 5 minutes if it hasn't browned slightly and that will do it. Menu idea: Serve with brussels sprouts as side, jazzed-up pudding for dessert.

Hummus
Very Good 4.0/5
(548 ratings)

A healthy and filling middle eastern dip! Eat it as an appetizer or snack with some pita. Why buy your hummus ready made from the store, when you can make it yourself?

This is a unique recipe to me, simple yet scrumptious. Not coating the outside is different---it makes the patties brown very appetizingly.

This is a healthy revision of one of my old pocket pita recipes. I've trimmed fat and sugar to come up with a pocket that packs 14g protein, is filling, and won't bust your calorie budget for the day.

Cranberry Relish is very refreshing in the summer. An excellent accompaniment to a Thanksgiving turkey, and a lovely side dish for most any pork or turkey sandwich.

Chili Spices

Want to know the secret to great chili? Start with great spices--and skip the packets at the supermarket, which are full of sugar and salt. Make your own to save money and skip the salt.

This is just a very basic chicken salad for topping off greens or slapping between a couple slices of bread. It's a basic recipe which, in the past, I've done with much more mayo - the milk thins out the mayo and helps spread the flavor out in this variation. Adding dried cranberries or chopped nuts makes it even better, but doing that, one should remove the relish and add a little more milk (maybe up it to 3 tablespoons of milk). This is a -big- recipe because it keeps for many days in a sealed container.
