Orange Chicken
Very Good 4.0/5
(134 ratings)

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.

Easy Peanut Butter Cookies
Very Good 4.4/5

Makes 14-ish cookies, sized about 1.5 to 2 inches in diameter each (I don't follow instructions too well - there's just NOT a teaspoon-sized cookie in my repertoire!)

This makes a lovely, creamy mayo without any nasty chemical additives or preservatives. If you can use pasteurised egg, so much the better - and it costs next to nothing!

Incredible! 5.0/5
(5 ratings)

Simple and straight forward, this recipe could be made the day ahead of time, the morning of to save the marinade time. I make two pounds at once, marinade over night, and freeze off in portion sizes the next day while i skewer my kabob for dinner. That way, all you have to do is pull it out the night before and skewer it the next day just before grilling or baking.

Single Serving Mixed Fruit/Yogurt Smoothie
Very Good 4.4/5
(73 ratings)

Editor's note: Use your favorite milk or yogurt in this recipe. Use ice cubes instead of water for a frozen treat.

Most of the smoothie recipes I've seen are for 3-6 servings. This is a good smoothie for just 1 person. It can be made with a stick blender instead of getting the big one dirty for just one drink!
