Diet Soup
Mmmm mmm good. You could pretty much add just about anything to make this soup your own. I did pre-shredded cabbage, pre-cut celery and onions, canned tomatoes, frozen green beans, pork boullion, water and about 3 tablespoons of olive oil which I think makes the difference between a watery soup and a hearty soup. Yum.

Asian Salad
Next time I will omit the butter and toast the almonds and sesame seeds just as others had suggested. I also cut down the oil to 1/4 cup and may try cutting it down even more the next time I make this. Tasty salad, all around, although I am still searching for ways to make this a bit healthier, maybe add more cole-slaw mix to give it more bulk. I used one bag of pre-prepped cole slaw mix and thought it was a lot of slaw. But once you add the ingredients and start mixing everything, the volume shrinks down quite a bit. So again, maybe adding an extra bag of slaw, cutting down on the oil, upping the amount of vinegar and soy sauce, and omitting the butter may make this somewhat more healthy. Oh, and I did add the seasoning packet that comes with the ramen, that added extra flavor. UPDATE: I still had tons of leftovers from when I made this a few days ago, so I added another entire bag of pre-mixed slaw, and again, it seemed like a lot, but when you mix it, the volume shrinks down. Definitely just as tasty. I will always use 2 bags the next time I make this, or, just use one bag of slaw, and just one package of ramen and cut out the butter and cut down on the oil as I had mentioned earlier.

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan
It's pretty good! Although I have to agree, not "five stars" good, it's a bit overrated. It definitely needs more kick, and it's obvious from the reviews that you can cater this to your own specific tastes. I think I will try increasing the amount of onion powder and celery salt and possibly consider adding garlic to the topping to give it a bit more "kick". Otherwise, good, easy recipe, I will certainly make it again.
