Day 4: Spaghetti and meatballs


Today is my honey’s birthday, and we celebrated by enjoying a fancy dinner at home with our little family. I made spaghetti and meatballs from Cook’s Illustrated Best Light Recipes, and it was really delicious. (Well I did the cooking… the birthday boy and my step daughter rolled the meatballs).

This cook book has yet to let us down… The recipes aren’t super-low-calorie healthy, but they take dishes that would normally be super-bad for you and make them only kinda-barely-bad for you. And they taste really good…. The best part is that the directions are detailed enough to ensure that you don’t screw it up.

I highly recommend adding it to your cookbook shelf for challenge-friendly recipes.  Ooh…. and try their turkey burgers – they are kick ass.
