1. Vegetable Lasagna - Deceptively decadent yet healthy.
I love good lasagna, but I truly get tired of eating so much cow. I also know that an exclusively vegetarian lasagna would never
past muster in my home. By hiding a few carrots, onions and green pepper, I succeeded in creating a lovely, cheesy, and well rounded meal that had its share of vegetables and plenty of satisfying meat flavor. It's not low calorie, but it isn't heart attack food either. It has the cheeses we love; mozzarella and Parmesan, and ricotta, but it also has a bit of low fat cottage cheese. This takes the healthy-brag factor to a new high, without sacrificing flavor or texture. It's decadent, yet healthy!
Make it for yourself and see what you think! It is pretty, authentic tasting, and although there are a few steps, its is fairly fool proof.
2. Chocolate Chip Cookies - Go inside out!
Betty Crocker rock when it comes to cookie recipes, and this one is no exception. I had a few Christmas colored chocolate chips left over that I used and substituted pecans for walnuts. The kicker here is using the white chocolate, or some other color of chips instead of plain chocolate. It makes a boat load of them, too. Freezes well. And if you're truly into ignoring common sense, dip them in some melted chocolate, too! Have fun!
