Haluski-Style Cabbage and Onions
Incredible! 5.0/5
(1 rating)

In this Slavic dish, cabbage and onions are roasted with celery seed and butter, then tossed with egg noodles. Delicious? Yes. Healthy? No. So I lightened it up a bit.

O.K. 2.0/5
(1 rating)

I'm a sucker for a good slice of pie. The trouble with baking pies is that then there is an entire pie lurking on the counter or in the fridge. And when there's a whole pie to tempt you, portion control is difficult.
My pint-sized apple pies, adapted from a recipe from my mom, solves that problem: They're instantly portion controlled. Plus, little ones can easily help.

Marinated Flank Steak
Very Good 4.4/5
(97 ratings)

Flank steak is lean, affordable and flavorful, but it's often tough. Marinade it and cut against the grain to keep it as tender as it is tasty!

Oh Boy, Salad!
Very Good 4.4/5

This was my great-grandfather's favorite salad. He didn't like lettuce, so when he saw this salad coming out, he always said, "Oh boy, salad!" thus the name.

Incredible! 5.0/5

From the Kitchen of Camille Engel... My friends and family LOVE this recipe. It is great served alongside chicken or salmon. Serve it as a dip with tortilla chips (or jicama slices for a no-grain healthy dipper.)

Cruciferous Crunch Salad
Very Good 4.9/5
(7 ratings)

I love broccoli crunch salad, but have loathed the 400 calories per cup of some of my favorites. I've tried multiple times unsuccessfully to create a healthier version that still tastes like my favorite and that helps me enjoy eating these cruciferous powerhouses without the payback. I think I have finally got it.

Kudos to LIBRARYCAT for the initial recipe I found on Sparkrecipes that led me in the right direction. I still wanted something with less calories and sugars. . .and a bigger portion.

Have fun!
