Tex Mex Calzones
Very Good 4.3/5
(282 ratings)

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.

For even more nutrition, look for "whole ground corn meal" or corn meal that had not been de-germinated. This recipe cuts the oil and doubles the fiber for a great-tasting muffin with 1/2 the calories of regular corn muffins.

Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup
Very Good 4.6/5
(75 ratings)

This is an adaptation of my favorite chicken tortilla soup recipe. If you have the calories to spare, make some tortilla chips in the oven to eat with the soup and top with a bit of sour cream, cheese, avocado and anything else you like! It is very flavorful on it's own, though. Be sure to use high-quality enchilada sauce, as some brands can be greasy. I like to add other veggies in sometimes, such as carrots and squash.

Cocoa Crusted Pork Tenderloin
Very Good 4.0/5
(196 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!

Silky Smooth White Icing
Very Good 4.2/5

Those who know me well will say that I am not a snob--except for when it comes to icing. I want the real stuff! To me cakes are ruined with fake whippy icings made with shortening.
