This is a delicious recipe that my family has loved for years, and it is really easy to make. It tastes even better the 2nd day.

My mother always made the best pot roast. But because she was dealing with four kids and a hectic life, she would put it on the stove and forget about it, until one of us would hear her shriek, "Oh my God!! Check the pot roast!" Most of the time, we could catch it just in the nick of time before all the broth boiled away. I swore, when I grew up, that I was going to keep the freaking broth topped off and avoid the drama... but as it turns out, that's the secret to phenomenal pot roast!

I created this dish for dinner one day when I was pressed for time with ingredients I had on hand and it was an instant hit! A low carb delight as is, but you can serve over wide whole wheat noodles or brown rice if you are not watching carbs.

25 years ago, I produced a series of cooking videos. It's how I learned how to cook. I still use the recipes from that series, and they have become family favorites!

These are a great way to kick up flavor in a salad or oatmeal. Unfortunately, they also taste really good by themselves or on vanilla ice cream. You can fit them into your food plan, but realize a serving equals 5 pecan halves. Use them SPARINGLY!

This recipe came out of the Columbus Dispatch (Ohio); I have adapted it to bring down the calories. It takes a long time to cook in the oven, but your house will smell like heaven and everyone will be quite impressed because this one is really tasty!

This is one of many variations I've developed to make a quick and tasty dinner with boneless chicken. The secret is to use Seasoned Flour - you can find it in the baking aisle, usually with fried chicken mix.

I'm making this as a light cake for Easter Sunday dinner. I will fill it with Orange Butter Filling, glaze with Apricot Glaze & dust with chopped almonds.

Julia Child recommends using this for the Orange Spongecake as a filling. I am using half the recipe for the filling - it is plenty! Can also be used as a filling for tartlets or cookies. If you add 1 stick of softened butter to 1 cup of icing, it will make a butter cream icing. Not exactly a diet food, though!

Julia's classic - I love this soup because its magical and very inexpensive; take some potatoes, leeks, and salt, simmer them in water for 45 minutes, and voila! Delicious soup! I've subbed half of the water for vegetable stock too, and that was similarly delicious. Enjoy!
