Raspberry-Lemon Scones
Very Good 4.0/5
(50 ratings)

Scones are perfect for weekend house guests, hostess gifts, or picnics. Traditionally made with loads of butter and cream, mine use far less butter--and wheat flour.

Tropical Grilled Chicken
Very Good 4.5/5
(149 ratings)

We love shredding this sweet and savory chicken to turn it into tacos, but it's also delicious as is with a side of grilled veggies.

Sweet and Spicy Nuts
Very Good 4.4/5
(25 ratings)

These are addictive. They're sweet, salty, spicy, and crunchy. Cut back on the sriracha/chili flakes to tame these fiery nuts. Use smoked (not hot or sweet) paprika.

Very Good 4.0/5
(6 ratings)

For when you live in the middle of nowhere and run to the convenience store because you just HAVE TO HAVE CHOCOLATE! (I know you all do this at one time or another!) In our area, the closest actual grocery store is 20 minutes away, and there aren't too many healthy options at the convenience store. This is a good sweet & salty snack.

Not-Fried Shrimp with Japanese Cocktail Sauce
Very Good 4.4/5
(34 ratings)

Biting into a perfectly crispy fried shrimp is so satisfying. The 10 grams of fat per serving? Not so satisfying. This dish has all the crunch, with much less fat.
