That's so funny! I was almost going to post "besides the cauliflower mashed potatoes" It's a semi-formal thing, so I'm looking for a side dish that would be a bit nicer than mashed potatoes...

Thank you, though! I shoulda posted that the first time like I was going to.

R u having company? I typically do a squash/zuchini type side dish, its starchier veggies, so its my sort of "compromise" and most people like them. I steam or bake/roast with seasonings on them. the powder for ranch dressing is a nice seasoning. Sometimes i'll roast in the oven the squash, zuchini, onion slices and potato slices, then just pick the potatoes out of mine (have to cook the potatoes a little longer, so start them then add the other veggies, or cook them a little before you add to the mix).

I also do the S.B. smashed califlower (with sauteed onion and garlic for added flavor, and with laughing cow cheese, can't remember if S.B. calls for that, but i put it in or i put in a little more than it calls for, one of the 2).

or, i just make the potatoes too and make the other for myself. depends on who the company is.

oh, while i'm thiking of ways to cook veggies, the other day, i marinaded asparagus in balsamic vinegar, then grilled, very good!

my dh loves california blend (broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots) you can top it with cheese. it looks more formal, and you can get a bag of it from the freezer or the produce area. the only thing is carrots are SB P1, but they're easy to pick out.

I love this thread! I'm with the majority of you, especially slightly. I don't really like to cook, but I will do a little, if I have to. The recipes so far seem very doable. Thanks guys!!

I realized that I forgot to add one thing to the quasadilla recipe - You can also add a jar of drained chiles. (I use banana peppers.) That gives it a bit more of a kick - if you like that. My husband likes spicy foods, and I can't handle too much spice...so i try to meet him somewhere in the middle.

Here's another easy recipe, I dunno how bad BBQ sauce is for you, but one of the easiest things we do is throw some chicken breasts in the crockpot, throw some BBQ sauce in and cook on low all day while at work. I know BBQ sauce has a lot of sugar, but cooking it this way makes the meat so tender, i can scrape off virtually all the sauce and still enjoy the chicken. I don't like dry meat, so i'm a big fan of ways to cook that leave the meat tender. I always throw in a couple extra breasts to use for sandwich next day or cut up for a salad the next day.

edit - I have found a BBQ sauce that has really low sugar. Its at my grocery store from a local BBQ place, but maybe its sold elsewhere, i don't know. Just in case - its Smokehouse BBQ and it has a pig on it. Incidentally, it is my favorite bbq place in town and i was ecstatic to see the nutritional info. i think only 3 grams of sugar. http://www.smokehousebbq.com/sauce.html

Great Recipes!! Slightly, I made the same chicken bbq meal the other night...I didn't have any bbq sauce I used a can of tomoatoe sauce, White vinegar, brown sugar, worster sauce and a little spicy mustard and cooked it just until it started to boil and then added it to the pan with the chicken. I am sure you could just skip the stovetop if your were doing it in the crock pot. I felt better b/c I could control how much sugar went into the sauce.

Hey girls, I dunno that this looks "easy", but for a girl that grew up on cassaroles, this sounds good to me. Any thoughts on something to replace the "heavy cream"? Other than that, I think this meets all my requirements for healthy. Of course, I'd use FF Cheddar Cheese.

I thought maybe laughing cow cheese....

Ah, nevermind, I found this website:
http://www.gourmetsleuth.com/equival...ndex=H&tid=494
that I plan on putting in my favorites, that tells substitutions. some milk and butter, that i can do...
wonder if it'll mess with the consistancy of the cassarole....
