Incredible! 5.0/5
(5 ratings)

These aren't your traditional lentils. The wine and chicken base give this lentil soup a richer flavor while the herbs give it a nice, savory punch.

Easy Muffin Mix and Muffins
Very Good 4.5/5
(30 ratings)

A super easy mix to put together and store so you can make muffins easily and for very low cost and calories! I make the mix about once a month and then store it in a big #10 can (the size of a large coffee can) with a lid. On top of the lid I put the directions for making the muffins so that even my children can put them together.

(1 rating)

in a large pot heat 3 tbsp. olive oil over high heat until simmering, add chopped onion and garlic, saute until golden, about 4min. Stir in tomatoe paste(1tbsp)ground cumin, kosher salt cayene(pinch) or chili powder and saute 2 min. longer. Add broth, chopped carrot and red lentils. Brinig to a simmer, then partially cover pot and turn heat to medium-low, simmer until lentils are soft(30min). Using an immersion or regular blender puree 1/2 of the soup and return to pot(should be chunky, I blend the entire recipe) to serve squeeze fresh lemon juice and top with chopped cilantro.
I add turkey sausage or kielbas(not in nutrition value) for a complete meal.

Very Good 4.5/5
(51 ratings)

My dip has all the flavor of the original, but it's much easier on the waistline. I prefer to eat this "dip" with a fork or raw vegetables.

Very Good 4.3/5

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.
