Dilly Salmon Packets with Asparagus

Provolone and Broccoli Rabe Beef Sliders
Pleasantly bitter broccoli rabe gives sliders a sophisticated edge and introduces a likely unfamiliar veggie in a delicious way.

Simply seasoned with salt and pepper, paprika, and Worcestershire, these succulent sliders are flavorful enough to please both kids and parents. Use Broccolini for a milder flavor. To create a truly terrific burger use quality 93% lean ground sirloin and premium whole wheat buns. Lean ground sirloin and reduced-fat cheese help keep fat and calories in check.

For this quick family dinner, a small amount of salty ham is crisped and used as a topping. That way you can use far less and still get a big flavor impact.
Sweet Onion Risotto with Sautéed Kale
Using short-grain brown rice instead of Arborio gives the risotto a pleasant heartiness and a dose of whole grains without losing the creamy goodness of the classic dish.
