Sweet and Sour cole slaw. Low fat. Great with barbque, hotdogs. Keeps a couple of weeks- as much a pickle as a salad.

Kid friendly chili
Very Good 4.7/5
(9 ratings)

This chili is not too spicy. The chili powder makes the flavor smokey, not spicy. My rugrats love it, and beans have a HUGE amount of iron...good for rugrats and parents a like.

This soup can be whipped up in the time it takes to boil potatoes. It is a soup with substance and yet is light enough for a hot summer night. Serve hot or chilled like a vichyssoise.

Crustless Spinach, Onion and Feta Quiche
Very Good 4.5/5
(1010 ratings)

Technically this is a crustless quiche, but the addition of flour makes for a delicious crusty bottom and sides.

Crockpot Chicken Tortilla Soup
Very Good 4.6/5
(177 ratings)

This tortilla soup tastes better than anything you can get at a restaurant. And it's healthy too! Don't let the long list of ingredients fool you. All you do is dump everything into the slow cooker and walk away.
