Very Good 4.8/5
(22 ratings)

This is a recipe that yields approxiamately the same amount as a 1.25 oz packet of commercial seasoning. This is not low sodium, but much better than the packets...

Italian Herb Seasoning
Very Good 4.4/5
(50 ratings)

Forget buying packets of seasonings. They're expensive and often full of salt. Save sodium and money by making this easy herb blend. Use it in sauces, soups, stews, on meats... anywhere you want to add Italian flavor without fat or sodium!

I don't like fish much, but I love this baked tilapia recipe! I think the sauce can be used with other fish/seafood.

Olive Tapenade
Very Good 4.3/5
(54 ratings)

Tapenade is a traditional sauce or condiment from Provence, in the south of France. It adds a punch of flavor for very few calories. You can buy premade tapenade, but you'll spend more money and be consuming more sodium than if you made it at home.

Vanilla Flavoring
Very Good 4.7/5

"Vanilla extract" usually isn't made with real vanilla. The good news is that it's really easy--and affordable--to make your own.

Very Good 4.8/5

looked through the existing recipes and didn't find one that was identical; used less olive oil - so save a little pasta water to help thin to taste. not outrageously spicy but quite tasty.
