Chef Meg's Latest Recipes

By , SparkPeople Blogger
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.
