Orange Chicken
Very Good 4.0/5

With this dish you get a serving of fruit in every portion. Dice the orange if you prefer smaller pieces and--if you're feeling creative--use a vegetable peeler to create curls of orange zest.

Wildly Addictive Peanut Butter Granola
Very Good 4.3/5
(34 ratings)

A store near my daughter's house in California has peanut butter granola in the bulk food section. But I couldn't find it anywhere near my house in Illinois, so I found this recipe online and made my own. Now I'm glad I couldn't find it at the store. It's cheaper and I can control the ingredients that are used.

Layered Mexican Dip with Baked Lime Chips
Very Good 4.5/5
