This dish is an easy introduction to the flavors of Creole cooking, which has its roots in the aristocratic
society of New Orleans, and combines classic European cooking techniques with a range
of flavor influences, especially African. Don’t confuse Creole with Cajun cooking, which is based on
the country-style cooking of Louisiana’s Acadian settlers. Serve this with 1⁄2 cup brown rice.Submitted by CHEF_MEG
Warm meat, gooey cheese, and grilled vegetables--what's not to love about a Philly cheese steak? How about the more than 1,600 calories in each one! This take on the classic skimps on fat but not flavor.

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.Submitted by CHEF_MEG
Consider this a riff on that Southern favorite, chicken and waffles—only our chicken is baked
and we ditched the waffles. We use decidedly Southern pecans and real maple syrup to evoke that
“breakfast for dinner” feeling.
This is a makeover of a member’s recipe. The original used sugar-free artificial pancake syrup,
which we swapped for real maple syrup. We also use panko (Japanese breadcrumbs) to give the
chicken a crispier crunch. It’s better than fried chicken!
Since this dish doesn’t contain any fruits or vegetables, be sure to serve it as part of a balanced
meal. Add a cup of skim milk, a serving of steamed or roasted broccoli, and a side of fruit. Or, if you
really miss the waffles, serve it along with a whole-grain version.Submitted by CHEF_MEG
