Easy Chicken Cutlet Dinner

Published January 8, 2008.

After making numerous bitter or burnt versions of our Parmesan-Crusted Chicken Cutlets, we found the secret to success was how the cheese was grated. Serve alongside our aromatic cumin and coriander flavored Rice Pilaf with Vermicelli. Round out the meal with an Orange and Radish Salad with Arugula, and perhaps finish things with our Double Chocolate Pudding.

An Italian Holiday Party

Published December 1, 2007.

Serve the antipasti before sitting down; we've made several suggestions but feel free to add your own. The Fettuccine Alfredo should be served immediately, but it can be prepared while the roast pork is resting; start the water boiling and the cream sauce reducing when you remove the pork from the oven. For easiest preparation, blanch the broccoli rabe well ahead of time, You can make the tart several days ahead and the tiramisu up to 24 hours before serving.

Lighter Comfort Foods

Just because you want to eat healthier doesn't mean that favorites like fried chicken and mashed potatoes are off the menu. Oven-fried chicken breasts are dredged in egg whites, which add no fat, and then crushed Melba toast. Our lighter mashed potatoes get their richness from 2 percent milk, low-fat sour cream, and just a small amount of butter.

Pasta Caprese Menu

Published April 20, 2007.

The tomatoes, pasta, and basil in Pasta Caprese didn't pose many challenges. The problem was the mozzarella. In every version we tried, it clumped into a gooey softball-sized wad in the bottom of the pasta bowl. To prevent a cheese meltdown, we found an unlikely solution in the freezer. Serve alongside our Simple Green Salad with Orange-Lime Vinaigrette and Summer Berry Pudding.

Light Sandwich Menu

Published April 11, 2007.

Three simple steps eliminate the twin problems—watery texture and bland flavor—of tuna salad: Use quality, water-packed tuna, drain it and break down the chunks with your fingers, and season the tuna before adding mayonnaise. As for the egg salad, dice the eggs before combining all the ingredients to keep the salad from turning pasty. Both these salads can be served in a sandwich or on a bed of lettuce for a light meal. Serve with our Light Peanut Butter Cookies.
