Grilled Lemon-Pepper Zucchini

Rating: 4.5 stars 52
I like to serve this easy summer-vegetable dish with grilled chicken and rice. I suppose you could switch the type of seasonings you use if you'd like a different flavor, or even change up the vegetables to suit your liking.

Awesomely Easy Sesame Asparagus

Bonnie's Low-Carb Green Bean Casserole

Rating: 4.5 stars 3
This luxurious, flavorful, rich casserole is great for the holidays or as an occasional treat... unless you are following a low-carb diet - then it's a weekly must! A favorite with both sides of my family and always gone at potlucks, it is my go-to 'take a dish' that everyone requests!

Southern Candied Sweet Potatoes

Rating: 5 stars 913
Sweet potatoes are cooked in butter and sugar until tender and caramelized.

Spicy Brussels Sprouts

Rating: 4 stars 23
A spicy brussels sprouts recipe.

Steamed Cabbage

Rating: 4.5 stars 3
This is delicious! It's the only way my family will eat cabbage other than in coleslaw. Hehe. I like to serve it with sliced avocado.

Skillet Summer Squash

Rating: 4.5 stars 24
The good old-fashioned country way. This is definitely NOT diet food. You don't drain the bacon fat off after you brown it. If you really have to, you can substitute butter, but it won't be the same. You can also use this recipe with a combination of yellow and pattypan squash.

Mediterranean Barley Salad

Rating: 4.5 stars 60
A great chilled whole-grain salad to serve with grilled chicken, or on its own for lunch. Can be improved with a combination of whole grains, but the barley works on its own.

Indian Kale with Chickpeas

Rating: 4.5 stars 5
This is a delicious way to cook kale if you are running out of ideas, and it goes great with Indian dishes like dal. Make sure not to overcook the greens!

Indian Rice Pilaf

Rating: 4.5 stars 33
A delicious rice dish. Guaranteed to appease the masses and make 'em say, MMMMMMMMM Give me more!!!
