Silky Smooth White Icing
Very Good 4.2/5
(35 ratings)

Those who know me well will say that I am not a snob--except for when it comes to icing. I want the real stuff! To me cakes are ruined with fake whippy icings made with shortening.

Tex Mex Calzones
Very Good 4.3/5
(280 ratings)

An Italian favorite gets a below the border twist. Chef Meg made just a few tweaks before giving this one her seal of approval! She adds the spices early in cooking to help boost flavor and added a full pound of turkey for a more filling meal.

Light & Healthy Apple Hand Pies
Very Good 4.2/5
(20 ratings)

Ditch the toaster pastry. They're loaded with sugar and fat--and not much else. My hand tarts are full of fruit, and if you make them ahead of time your kids can grab them and go.

Black Bean Hummus
Very Good 4.2/5

Smoky from the cumin with a hidden serving of vegetables, this dip is equally delicious in a burrito as it is spread on tortilla chips.

Tahini-Lemon Dressing
Very Good 4.2/5

Use this on falafel or a salad. Add fresh or dried herbs and it becomes goddess dressing. The toasted sesame oil imparts a stronger sesame flavor to the dressing.
