Recipes to try in 2010

In 2010 my goal is to try a couple new recipes each month. I don't know how to cook much and all the cooking I've seen from women in my family is greasy, high fat, high sodium, high everything....With all the info available on sparkpeople/sparkrecipes, it's time I actually took advantage of it!

Hawaiian Pizza: 'SparkRecipes Un-Chained' Contest Finalist
Very Good 4.4/5
(77 ratings)

Cookbook creator says: This is one of the first recipes I want to try for 2010. I've decided that I don't really try cooking the things I enjoy eating. Learning to cook something other than recipes using all prepackaged items has to be a step up. And PIZZA? Hell yeah! Worth a try.

Stuffed green bell peppers from Mom's recipe..a great Sunday meal!

Note: You can use ground beef instead of ground turkey, but the nutritional facts will be different--the facts posted are for turkey. I find they taste just as good with the turkey.

whenever money was tight and it was close to payday, but she had no money, my mother would make this old standard. It would last for a few meals, it was warm and comforting, you could feel the love in every bite.

I was stopping by a Hispanic neighbor's apartment, and they were serving these tasty economical eggs, pinched with tortillas and eaten without silverware.

I love this salad at Applebee's. I knew I had to find a way to make it better for you. This is does not have as much of a kick but is almost half the fat and calories.

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.

This recipe technically makes a single serving, but it's a generous one by my standards (about 15 shrimp) It's so quick and easy, but packs some serious spice! My measurements in the kitchen are never really exact and yours don't have to be either. You can adjust to make it as hot (or not) as you like.
