Butternut Squash Mac and Cheese
Very Good 4.1/5
(177 ratings)

Butternut squash helps slim down this macaroni and cheese. You can't taste it, and it boosts the nutritional value of the dish!

Very Good 4.3/5
(3 ratings)

I make a double batch of meat loaf so I can use it throughout the week. Basic recipe - old family favourite - easy to switch up with different spices. Sometimes to switch it up instead of topping with tomato soup I'll use salsa. Great with boiled potatoes and brocolli - good ol fashion cooking.

Slow Cooker Kentucky Burgoo
Very Good 4.1/5
(56 ratings)

This spring time stew is a must have at any Derby party! Traditionally made with pork, beef, chicken, and rabbit, I've added more veggies and lightened the meat. The best part: This is a slow cooker recipe, so the burgoo will be ready when the horses are loading into the gate.

Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Soup
Good 3.5/5
(26 ratings)

Did you know that just three buffalo wings have 10 grams of fat? (Who eats just three?) This soup has all the spice, creaminess, and tang you crave--with a fraction of the fat.

Chicken Breasts with Red Wine Sauce
Very Good 4.4/5
(135 ratings)

This is a lighter take on the classic Italian preparation of Chicken Cacciatore (or Chicken Hunter Style). Our made-over version uses white meat rather than dark and less oil to cut almost 60 calories per serving and reduce the fat and sodium of the traditional recipe.

Creamy Green Enchiladas
Very Good 4.2/5
(61 ratings)

I love enchiladas! These are full of vegetables in addition to the cheese and creamy sauce. Each one has a full serving of veggies, plus almost 20% of your daily fiber.
