Slow Cooker Cilantro Lime Chicken
I was trying to find something new for low-calorie lunches for work and this fit the bill perfectly! After reading the reviews of how salty the recipe can get with a packet of taco seasoning (and trying to keep to a low sodium diet), I omitted the packet and used McCormicks Salt-Free Southwest Seasoning. I halved the recipe and only used about 2 Tbls. of salsa (since that is loaded with sodium), and threw in a whole can of low sodium petite diced tomatoes. I also had some red onion and added about 1/4 cup of those. Those were the only changes I made and it was so delicious. Served on a whole wheat tortilla with light sour cream and low-fat cheddar cheese made for yummy lunches that were the talk of the office!

Absolutely Fabulous Greek/House Dressing
I have been searching for a recipe like this for years after falling in love with the dressing at a favorite Greek restaurant back East. I made it as written the first time and it was really good, but then made some slight changes to make it my own. First off, what home cook makes 4 quarts of dressing at a time?! I scaled it down to 10 servings and got enough dressing for 4 large entree salads. For the vinegar, I used a combination of white wine and white balsamic vinegars, plus some fresh lemon juice to make it almost equal parts oil and vinegar. The last addition was some fresh, smashed garlic. I put it all in a medium sized canning jar and shook it up, then left it in the refrigerator overnight and shook it like crazy again the next day! I also use this dressing to marinate tomatoes for "Mama's Best Broiled Tomato Sandwich", found on this website.

Parmesan Garlic Bread
I was so pleasantly surprised by this recipe. I thought it was going to be your standard "herbed butter", but it was so much better! The addition of parmesan cheese (I used freshly grated) really punches up the flavor. I did tweak it slightly, based on what I had on hand. I didn't have any rosemary or garlic salt, so I substituted oregano and just used a total of 1 1/2 Tbls. garlic powder. Oh, and I didn't melt the butter, I just softened it and mixed everything in with a fork. This is now my new "go to" toasted garlic bread recipe!!
