A couple of weeks ago, we introduced you to Chef Meg, SparkPeople's newest resident expert. (Miss that post? Read it here.) You all had wonderful compliments and great suggestions for her.

In addition to the two recipes and videos you saw here on the dailySpark, Chef Meg has plenty of others available on SparkRecipes--and we'll be adding more each week.

We've taken 20 of her made-over and original recipes and compiled them in a downloadable, printable cookbook. And, like everything else on SparkPeople, it's 100% FREE!

Try Chicken and Vegetable Satay, Blueberry-Flax Muffins and Mama's Red Beans and Rice, among others.

She included vegetarian and meat dishes, sweet and savory bites, baked goods and slow cooker meals--with two recipes for the leftovers! Some of these recipes feed a crowd and some feed just a few. (NOTE: By clicking on the title of each recipe, you can see the full nutritional info and the recipe card at

    Any chance you can add the whole nutritional information for these recipes? As is, they are pretty unusable (just Calories and Fat). Not to mention that a lot of them look like they have as much Sodium as anything in the Chinese Joint down the street... - 8/26/2009   7:27:00 PM

    Haven't tried one yet but my son would probably love the chicken and vegetable satay so I will try that. I have cooked more with SP than ever before. I'm really focused on healthy eating. - 8/26/2009   4:09:49 PM

    In the Taco soup recipe it calls for a 14 oz. Tomato Sauce but in the directions it talks about Tomato Paste. Which should it be? - 8/26/2009   3:58:24 PM
    GO_ROBIN: If you click on the link for each recipe in the cookbook, you can get the full nutritional info! Hope that helps. - 8/26/2009   3:58:04 PM

    Wonderful idea! Thanks! Just one comment, though. I'm diabetic and would have appreciated full nutritional info for the recipes as I have to track carbs. However, it's not a deal breaker! I have recipe software on my computer that I can input the recipes into to get the nutritional info. (In fact, I guess I could also use the recipe builder on this site for that.) - 8/26/2009   3:56:24 PM

    OMGoodness! These look so yummers!!! Can't wait to try some of 'em!!!

    Here's a challenge for Chef Meg... Some of our favourite cookbooks are the Weight Watchers 5 in 15 (5 ingredient, 15 minute) or 20-minute newsstand books (mags?). I would love to see what yummy things Chef can whip up w/ a few ingredients & not a lot of time... - 8/26/2009   3:05:13 PM
