Green Chile Posole (Low-Fat)

Rating: 4.5 stars 4
Turkey, hominy, tomatillos, and green chile; what can be wrong? Plus, it is very low in fat and calories.

Spicy Orange Chicken

Rating: 4.5 stars 146
My spicy orange chicken has the same flavor profile as its take-out counterpart: sweet orange, spicy chilies, and Asian condiments. I make this without oil, creating something much lighter and very tasty.

Spaghetti Aglio e Olio

Rating: 4.5 stars 458
Italian-inspired, inexpensive dish of spaghetti with garlic and olive oil.

Chocolate Sandwich Cookies II

Rating: 4.5 stars 178
These EASY to make cookies are absolutely fantastic. Moist and chewy - can't stop at one, or two,..... ...

Whoopie Pies VIII

Rating: 4.5 stars 163
Chocolate sandwich cookies with cream filling. I use reconstituted powdered egg whites for the filling instead of fresh since they won't be cooked.

Chef John's Gremolata

Rating: 4.5 stars 12
This gremolata recipe is a sharp, fresh, and very green Italian condiment perfect for garnishing those rich, stick-to-your-ribs dishes that dominate fall and winter menus.

Lime Cilantro Rice

Jazz up plain white rice by adding lime zest, lime juice, and cilantro.

Sun-dried Tomatoes I

Rating: 4.5 stars 128
Not a labor intensive process, but certainly a lengthy one. Once dried, store these tasty gems in the refrigerator.

Homemade Corn Tortillas

Rating: 4.5 stars 187
This is the real thing! A simple mixture of masa harina and water results in the most wonderful corn tortillas you ever tasted. The secret is to use a cast iron pan! You can buy masa harina at Mexican grocery stores or in the ethnic food aisle of large supermarkets.

Lauren's Apple Cider Roast Turkey

Rating: 5 stars 36
The most delicious roast turkey recipe ever! The brine is well worth the extra time the night before; the result is a juicy, perfectly seasoned turkey. A brined turkey cooks 20-30 minutes faster; keep that in mind when consulting roasting charts. Enjoy!

Yummy Grilled Asparagus

Rating: 4.5 stars 30
I created this last summer. It goes great with all grilled meats and fish.

Hibachi-Style Fried Rice

Rating: 4.5 stars 194
One of my favorite parts of hibachi is the fried rice and I was determined to make it at home. This recipe is quick and easy and is sure to be a big hit. I enjoy using left-over teriyaki chicken in my fried rice, but you can use any meat you want or no meat at all! With or without chicken it is equally as delicious and a great side dish! You can use more or less garlic, depending on your personal preference.
