Herb Roasted Garlic
Very Good 4.5/5
(37 ratings)

Garlic is good for more than keeping away vampires. It's also quite good for you and full of flavor. Roasting garlic mellows its flavor and gives it a creamy texture.

Broccoli Slaw
Very Good 4.8/5
(21 ratings)

A delicious take on cole slaw without the mayo from a friend of mine. Contains almonds and sunflower seeds. I brought it to a party recently and people were saying how good it was, not realizing I had made it. That's pretty high praise! You can cut this recipe in half, too. (you could also try Splenda, although I haven't done that yet).

Low Calorie Banana Muffins
Very Good 4.4/5
(285 ratings)

My whole family loves these! Although they may seem small (considering the size of muffin we can get in a bakery) but we always add a helping of fruit or yogurt for breakfast. Yummy!

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!

Raspberry-Lemon Scones
Very Good 4.0/5
(50 ratings)

Scones are perfect for weekend house guests, hostess gifts, or picnics. Traditionally made with loads of butter and cream, mine use far less butter--and wheat flour.
