Slow Cooker Thai Beef Curry

"I love the intense flavors in the Black Pepper-Curry Chicken Sauté and Slow Cooker Thai Beef Curry. Both taste like restaurant quality meals, and it's amazing to me that a home cook can easily cook up that kind of flavor!" - Cynthia Moran

Cheeseburger Pizza

"I picked Cheeseburger Pizza and Loaded Potato Soup because besides being delicious, they're both fun and easy to make. Pizza and loaded baked potatoes are normally guilty pleasures but the Cooking Light Diet recipes provide something we can eat whenever want—and lose weight!" - Darci Rogojin

Slow Cooker Chicken Tikka Masala

"Slow Cooker Chicken Tikka Masala is a great dump in the crockpot meal that doesn’t taste like it’s a crockpot meal, and it’s great when I have a lot of people coming over for dinner." - Elena Harris

Bucatini Puttanesca

"The Bucatini Puttanesca is my favorite. The Glazed Chicken and Szechuan Noodles is a close second. Those noodles are amazing!" - Christy Lindberg-Price
