These are recipes Ryan and I have tried recently. We're mostly trying to focus on meals that are fairly healthy and low-calorie. For my own memory, I'm making comments about each recipe, including what both Ryan and I would rate it. Enjoy!

Very Good 4.3/5
(12 ratings)

Cookbook creator says: I give it a 3.5, and Ryan gives it a 2. He thought it was too salty - not sure if that was because I used too much salt or if it was the sauce. A pretty easy meal, and something different.

Very Good 4.7/5

Cajun Chicken Caesar Salad
Very Good 4.4/5

Healthy Chicken Vegetable Casserole
Very Good 4.1/5
(560 ratings)

Cookbook creator says: I give this a 3.5. It was very tasty but preparing it took longer than I would like. A week afterwards, Ryan doesn't remember it well enough to rate it, but I think at the time he said he liked it. We might try this again in about a month.

Very Good 4.0/5

Very Good 4.4/5

(no ratings)

Cookbook creator says: Ryan and I both give this one a 5. It's from a recipe my mom had, and it's a fantastic comfort meal. It's pretty caloric, though, so it's not an all-the-time meal (anymore!).

Very Good 4.5/5
(35 ratings)

Cookbook creator says: I LOVED this recipe and gave it a 5. It's full of flavor, probably because of the golden mushrooms and cream cheese. I also loved that it was a crockpot recipe. :-)

Very Good 4.4/5

Cookbook creator says: Ryan and I both give these a 3.5. I cut them too thin the first time, and they burned. When they're cut more like wedges, they turn out much better.

Cookbook creator says: This was simple to make and very tasty. Both Ryan and I give it a 4. Ryan said it tasted like the sandwiches from BW3's. Fewer calories, of course!

Easy Slow Cooker Lemony Garlic Chicken Breast
Very Good 4.1/5
(268 ratings)

Cookbook creator says: I give this one a 4, and Ryan gives it a 3.5. I'm not really sure of the need to brown the chicken in the skillet before putting it in the crock pot. Next time, I think I'll just put the uncooked breasts in the crockpot and cook for longer. Very tender and tasty.

Cookbook creator says: We both give this a 3.5. It was a very easy side dish to make. I'll definitely use it again. It went nicely with chicken alfredo.
