Slow Cooker Reuben Sandwiches

I recently stumbled upon a recipe where someone put lunchmeat in a crockpot with beef broth. I wish I could remember the source, so I could give them credit. That recipe inspired me to try other lunchmeats in the slow cooker…and that’s how the Slow Cooker Reuben Sandwich was born. No need to spend hours …

Thai Roasted Chicken with Coconut Milk and Basil Mashed Sweet Potatoes

One of my favorite Zesties wants to break free of traditional flavors to go Thai. I often find that home cooks are willing to try something new, but convincing the rest of the family is tricky. When you serve something unfamiliar, the kids and better half may turn up their noses before they even take …

Chopped Oriental Chicken Salad

Skinless chicken breasts and thighs are roasted in an oriental dressing with crunchy peanuts and sesame seeds to create this low-cal, 6-point chopped oriental chicken salad. I love chopped salads. In fact, I don’t even understand why non-chopped salads exist. Sure large slices of tomatoes and red onions are pretty for presentation, but it’s awkward …

Tender Juicy Beef Ribs

Orange Habanero Fish en Papillote with Orange Garlic Wild Rice

I’m a huge fan of fish en papillote (fish in paper). It’s the easiest, healthiest way I know to prepare the perfect piece of juicy, flaky fish. You wrap a filet in parchment paper with veggies and in just 15 minutes, dinner is ready. The presentation is pretty spectacular, too. Recently, Saucy Mama announced that …
