Slow Cooker Strawberry-Rhubarb Conserve
Good 3.9/5
(21 ratings)

It looks like jam, but it's bursting with whole fruit and thick enough to eat with a fork. Serve over pork roast, on top of yogurt or cottage cheese, or on your morning toast.

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.

Apple-Cinnamon Slow Cooker Oatmeal
Good 3.2/5
(64 ratings)

Healthy, Fruity Breakfast Hand Tarts
Very Good 4.2/5
(20 ratings)

Ditch the toaster pastry. They're loaded with sugar and fat--and not much else. My hand tarts are full of fruit, and if you make them ahead of time your kids can grab them and go.

Not-Fried Shrimp with Japanese Cocktail Sauce
Very Good 4.4/5
(33 ratings)

Biting into a perfectly crispy fried shrimp is so satisfying. The 10 grams of fat per serving? Not so satisfying. This dish has all the crunch, with much less fat.

Creamy Green Enchiladas
Very Good 4.2/5
