Very Good 4.8/5
(9 ratings)

If you can find ready-made pizza dough, this comes together really fast. I'm fortunate to live near a Trader Joe's where I can buy freshly made pizza dough that doesn't come in a can.
I also make my own Italian seasoning, using equal parts oregano, marjoram, basil, thyme, rosemary and whatever else you like.

It's delicious!

Blueberry Flax Seed Muffins
Very Good 4.5/5
(228 ratings)

Low-fat buttermilk and applesauce help lower the fat, and the whole-wheat flour and flax seed add fiber. These healthful muffins freeze well!

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.

Spring Rolls
Very Good 4.3/5
(80 ratings)

This recipe is really easy; it's really more of a process than a recipe. Rice paper wrappers, which are available in the ethnic sections of most larger supermarkets these days, are a great way to wrap your veggies and protein for a quick snack or light lunch.

Spicy Chicken and Cheese Nachos
(no ratings)

A good weekend dish for sitting around watching football that while not fat free is still much better than most nachos and cheese dishes.

I add jalapenos on top of the cheese before baking at 350 for 10 minutes. This is a large, very filling meal but half the calories of those served in a Mexican food restaurant. Not a staple meal but a nice treat every now and then - with half the guilt.

Skinny Chicken Philly Cheese Sub
Very Good 4.1/5
(74 ratings)

Warm meat, gooey cheese, and grilled vegetables--what's not to love about a Philly cheese steak? How about the more than 1,600 calories in each one! This take on the classic skimps on fat but not flavor.

Iced Coffee (Unchained Recipe Contest)
Very Good 4.4/5
(79 ratings)

Faster, cheaper and just as rich and delicious but so much more healthy than the restaurant versions. Try substituting the unsweetened chocolate Almond Breeze almond milk for a chocolately treat.

My aunt Gwen was a great cook and she kept go-to, quick recipes that were always as good as her spent-all-day-making recipes. This was one of my favorites from her go-to, quick list.
