Healthy and Flavorful Stuffed Baked Potatoes

Sometime it feels like sides dishes get left out, and people ask me all the time for side dish ideas. These Stuffed Potatoes are low-fat and easy to make. The touch of Greek Yogurt and Gruyere add great flavor and texture. They go perfect with meat, fish or pork, and best of all, the kids love them. See me on Thursday 11:30 central time on NBC 13 “Daytime Alabama” making a few of my favorite side dish recipes.

Kid Favorite Dessert: Easy Funnel Cakes

IMG_2387

My oldest son, Alec, is running cross country this season which is quite the challenge. He runs 5 days a week after school (2 to 5 miles) and has a track meet almost every weekend. It’s quite impressive for a 12-year-old. At most of the meets, they sell funnel cakes so he has been begging me to come up with an easy recipe to make funnel cakes at home. We worked together to create this simple Funnel Cake recipe, and it’s really pretty tasty. I tried to make it as low-fat as possible.

Simple Baby Back Ribs

Birmingham Alabama is a great place for ribs. I always cook my baby back ribs on the grill, so when I was asked to create a recipe for wintertime and indoors, I was a little nervous. These Chipotle Baby Back Ribs came out great. The Baja Chipotle Marinade is awesome, and these ribs fell of the bone. These are so easy that anyone can make them.
