Ultimate French Onion Soup
(no ratings)

Not "healthy" but you can lighten it up by using reduced sodium broth, margarine or "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter" in place of the butter, and reduced fat cheese.

So you think you hate lima beans? Have you tried baby lima beans? They are small, tender and lack that "pastiness" that got stuck on your tongue when you were a kid. I remember that crooked, silly face I always made right before I had to swallow every bite. And I do mean, EVERY STINKIN' BITE! Trust me for a minute and just try this recipe 'cause lima beans are really good for you!

This recipe is an adaptation of a recipe I saw in the Today Show. It is easy and tasty. It is also not expensive to make. The servings are generous. The small amount of salt really intensifies the flavor.

Credit for this recipe goes to Courtney at Bodies in Motivation (

I owe the idea behind this recipe to my dog training mentor, Ralph. Slightly sweet, nutty, deliciously pumpkiny, and buttery soft, it’s an amazing fake-out recipe when you want to impress someone. I’ve made a few adjustments from Ralph’s original recipe to make it organic and come together more quickly. Gnocchi dough is great to have on hand in the freezer for unexpected dinner guests. This recipe serves 2 for a main course, or 4 as a side dish.

When I want chocolate mousse, only the real deal will do. This version is low in fat, but it's still creamy and rich. The hardest part is waiting for it to cool!
