Chicken Breasts with Red Wine Sauce
Very Good 4.4/5
(135 ratings)

This is a lighter take on the classic Italian preparation of Chicken Cacciatore (or Chicken Hunter Style). Our made-over version uses white meat rather than dark and less oil to cut almost 60 calories per serving and reduce the fat and sodium of the traditional recipe.

Gratin de pommes de terre au jambon
Incredible! 5.0/5
(2 ratings)

AKA Scalloped Potatoes and Ham....Worth every calorie!
Cooking the onions with the flour and cream make each bite a revelation....You can leave the ham out and substitute carrots instead.

Irish style (steel cut) oats are a great food, but take a long time to cook, so they're difficult for a weekday breakfast. Using the slow cooker overnight solves that problem. Chinese 5-spice powder (a mixture of cinnamon, ginger, two types of anise and cloves) gives it a wonderfully exotic flavor. We make a large batch and freeze it in cellophane wrap lined muffin pans, then bag the individual pucks. Depending on the size of your muffin pans, one or two oatmeal pucks in the microwave for a few minutes makes a quick and tasty breakfast.
