Easy Sweet Potato and Pepper Hash with Eggs - quick, easy, and full of good stuff!

Pumpkin and Black Bean Chili (with Beer!) - a vegetarian dish that's "sweet, smoky, spicy and soothing" - delicious!

    I'll admit it - I added beef (marinated it in the beer ahead of time). I regret nothing - it was delicious!

One Skillet Lasagne Toss - some days, anything that uses more than one pan is just too much effort; here's a simple, hearty dish for days when fast and easy are called for!

Lightened General Tso's Chicken - America's Test Kitchen managed to cut 37 grams of fat per serving from this take-out favourite... so you can eat twice as much! ;)

Healthy Bacon & Pumpkin Pasta - creamy, savoury, and definitely lighter than a traditional cream or cheese sauce

Balsamic Glazed Pork Tenderloin - prepared in a slow cooker this turns out tender, juicy and, best of all, it's EASY! (bonus cherry tomato salad side dish on the click-through too)

Chipotle Butternut Squash Soup - warm and spicy soup makes a great meal in cooler months. Serve topped with a dollop of sour cream and either bacon pieces or cheese. Mmm...

Picadillo - spicy and tangy ground beef with potatoes, this version of Cuban picadillo is a great, party pleasing dip; but it also doubles as a perfect meal for two!

Italian Drunken Noodles - with sausage, basil, bell peppers and tomatoes.

Butternut Squash Lasagna Rolls - topped with a bacon, white wine, and shallot reduction. Originally a Cooking Light recipe - this one's been slightly adapted to be even healthier (and it freezes well!)

Slow Cooker Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup - extra thick and creamy, this is more of a hearty stew than a true 'soup'. Tips: cook on LOW 4-6 hours or you'll end up with mushy stew (time depends on how many ingredients were cold/frozen at start), reduce butter to 1/4 cup, use milk (skim-2%) instead of half and half, feel free to use 2 cups (or more!) frozen veggies in place of the carrots and celery

Thai Green Curry Turkey Meatballs - make these meatballs as an appetizer with dipping sauce, or use the alternate curry sauce recipe and serve over rice as a main dish

Homemade Spaghetti - the sauce simmers for 3-4 hours to create a great comfort meal. Heart-healthy tips: use low-sodium diced tomatoes, paste, and broth; use extra-lean ground beef (or substitute ground turkey, tofu, or even beans); use organic vegetable broth/puree to add some fiber and vitamins (the non-organic tends to just be flavoured water with almost no nutritional content); use 'smart' white or whole wheat pasta - still delicious, you won't even notice most of these substitutions!
