Five on Friday: August's Top 5 Recipes

Each Friday, we share five things that are getting buzz around the Cooking Light offices—from what we’re reading around the Web, to what’s hot on Instagram, or even our latest favorite ingredient.

To celebrate the end of August, this week's Five on Friday features the month's most popular Cooking Light recipes (on sister site and Pinterest).

1. Eggplant Parmesan: The perfect celebration of this late-summer veggie, our 5-star version of eggplant parm is a fraction of the calories compared to traditional versions.

3. Hasselback Potatoes: Not exactly a recipe, per se, this is more of a technique. Nonetheless, this baked-potato-meets-oven-fries trick is getting lots of love on Pinterest.

4. Popcorn Balls: This superfast snack is great for after school (or work, no shame!).
5. Tomato-Basil Soup: Creamy tomato soup comes together quickly thanks to canned fire-roasted tomatoes. Pair it with your favorite grilled cheese sandwich. Yum!
