I love this recipe! It can be used as a sauce for grilled meats, a dressing for salads or steamed vegetables, or as a marinade for tofu or other lean proteins. You will always find it in my refrigerator.

What a treat these burgers are! I love how the tangy flavor of the sauce and the peppery notes of the greens play off the savory burger.

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!

A delicious combination of flavors that will remind you of summer even if cooking the dish in the dead of winter since most of the ingredients are available year round. You can add any other type of favorite veggie to this.

Pork tenderloin makes prep easy and keeps dish lower in fat. Fresh red pepper and snow peas make it colorful and whole wheat pasta adds fiber. In spring, substitute asparagaus for the snow peas or simply add it for more volume. This is based in part on a Weight Watcher's recipe.

Oatmeal Pancakes
Good 3.9/5
(167 ratings)

A hearty pancake that provides over 6 grams of fiber per serving. I like to add blueberries to the batter. Very kid-friendly recipe!

Incredible! 5.0/5
(3 ratings)

This salad goes really well with my maple cider dressing (which I entered separately). It's a great fall treat. Use white cheddar cheese, if you can find it, for a really nice flavor!

Fall fruit adds a twist and replacing mayo with low-fat yogurt makes it a little more healthy. This is great for leftover chicken.

Roasted Beet Salad
Very Good 4.4/5
(172 ratings)

Think you dislike beets? Not after trying this recipe! Roasting brings out the beets' natural sweetness, and the feta offers a salty contrast.
