These are really good, and really filling. The recipe actually calls for oil, but I made them healthier by swaping the oil for applesauce. You can cut the sugar down a little more if you wish, I use under a 1/4 cup and they turn out fine. The original recipe also calls for regular buttermilk, but I chose lowfat to make it healthier. Recipe is supposed to make 8 pancakes, but I usually get 10-12 depending upon how big I make them. So I chose to put the servings at 10, which is one pancake each. So if you eat two pancakes each then it actually will serve 5-6 people. Or if you are like my kids, who the first time they ate this they ate 3 pancakes each, which meant I only got 1, my baby got 1, and my husband didn't get any! Anyways, they are delicious! Prep time is approximate, I didn't really time myself. The original recipe didn't have a prep time. Cook time is per pancake. Also note that I didn't measure out the batter, I just pour it onto my griddle until I get a pancake at about the size I want. So you may only get 8 pancakes by measuring, but I got 8 the first time and about 12 the second time I made it.

Smoky from the cumin with a hidden serving of vegetables, this dip is equally delicious in a burrito as it is spread on tortilla chips.

We love shredding this sweet and savory chicken to turn it into tacos, but it's also delicious as is with a side of grilled veggies.

Orange Chicken
Very Good 4.0/5
(133 ratings)

With this dish you get a serving of fruit in every portion. Dice the orange if you prefer smaller pieces and--if you're feeling creative--use a vegetable peeler to create curls of orange zest.

These muffins are great. You can use non-fat yogurt or low-fat, if you wish, I usually make it with non-fat yogurt. You may also cut back on the honey, or use some agave nectar instead. I usually make it with the pecans and raisins, but you can choose to leave them out. These muffins are so good, even my kids love them! They are low in fat and calories too!

Cocoa Crusted Pork Tenderloin
Very Good 4.0/5
(195 ratings)

This dish inspired by Costa Rican spices seems exotic, but it uses spices and ingredients you already have around the house: coffee, cocoa and cinnamon. You'll wonder why you've been relegating these flavorings to dessert!

These are so delicious you should make a double batch so you can freeze some for later or share with friends. I normally substitute the sugar with splenda for less calories.
