Baked Garlic Parmesan Chicken
Gave it four stars instead of five because it's unnecessarily greasy with the olive oil. I've made basically the same thing for the past 25 years using fat free Italian dressing to dip it in. It's delicious and a lot lower fat that way.

Yummy Sweet Potato Casserole
I am 50 years old and my family has made basically this same casserole all my life - it's very common in the South. A TIP: it's much more flavorful if you use baked sweet potatoes - baked for at least 1.5 to 2 hours to bring out their full flavor - than if you boil them. It's also a lot easier - just cut the cooked potatoes in half and scoop out their goodness - no peeling! And do not substitute other nuts for pecans. It's just not the same without the true southern nut meant for sweet potatoes!

Fettuccine Alfredo V
If you're concerned about the healthfulness of this dish, try using low-carb or whole grain pasta, Smart Balance instead of butter (no transfats and quite a good taste), Evaporated skim milk (straight, not diluted) instead of the heavy cream, and less cheese. Many reviewers seem to think this is too much cheese anyway - just use a good quality parmesan, NOT that pre-grated pap! I have not actually tried these changes with this particular recipe yet, but have with similar recipes with good results.
