Summer is winding down, which means we're starting to work on fall and even holiday recipes in the SparkPeople test kitchen (aka Chef Meg's kitchen). Our healthy cooking expert created a no-fail creamy hummus recipe, with a whole-wheat flatbread to pair with it. And, for a quick, kid-friendly, late summer meal, you'll want to try the BBQ Chicken Flatbread.

I've heard rave reviews about her cilantro-lime steak salad. The trick is to marinate the meat in the morning, make the salad while you're waiting for the grill to heat up, and dinner is ready in no time!

Slimmer Sausage and Peppers: This hearty yet better-for-you dinner is perfect for a camping trip, a cookout with friends, or just dinner on a Wednesday night.  
cals: 292.5   fat: 11.6 g   protein: 15.9 g   carbs: 35.4 g   fiber: 2.3 g
 

Grilled BBQ Chicken Flatbreads: This recipe was created for kids, but adults will crave a slice, too. I like to add hot pepper rings for the grown-ups!
cals: 223.9   fat: 3.9 g   protein: 26.2 g   carbs: 21.4 g   fiber: 2.9 g
 

Chef Meg's Hummus: Start with this simple but flavorful recipe, then add in anything you'd like! Try it with fresh herbs like chives, cilantro, rosemary, or thyme.
cals: 65.2   fat: 1.8 g   protein: 3.6 g   carbs: 11.2 g   fiber: 2.9 g
 

Easy Whole Wheat Flatbread: Chewy, homemade flatbread makes any meal seem special. Use in place of pitas, bread, or crackers!
cals: 84.5   fat: 0.7 g   protein: 5.4 g   carbs: 15.9 g   fiber: 2.9 g
 

Cilantro-Lime Flank Steak Salad: Topped with lean, juicy flank steak, this salad is a delightful late summer supper. Marinate the steak in the morning and dinner will be ready in a flash at night.
cals: 361.4   fat: 10 g   protein: 25.3 g   carbs: 41 g   fiber: 3.9 g
