"This was surprisingly good! My husband, a barbecued pork afficianado, thought it was really good considering it wasn't smoked. I try to make pork barbecue with pork loin because it's so much leaner, but usually the meat is too dry. This way it was delightfully moist. Two tips: First, the barbecue sauce you choose makes or breaks the flavor, so choose one you like, or experiment until you find one with the right mix of sweetness, spicy, and tang. Second, chop the pork as well as shred it before returning it to the pot. The smaller pieces are much more tender than long strings of pulled pork."

"This is my husband's and son's favorite meatloaf recipe, because of the touch of brown sugar. And it's so easy! I use ground turkey or extra-lean ground beef instead of the beef-plus-port, plus EggBeaters in stead of the egg, and Heart Smart Bisquick instead of regular, all just to shave off some calories. No one can tell the difference. Use a cookie sheet or jelly roll pan lined with foil. With a smaller pan you won't have room to separate the mini-loaves."

"I made these to eat while we were watching one of the football playoffs, and they were a big hit! Usually oven-fried boneless chicken is kind of soggy--not too crisp--but because these were chunks, they were crisper. The chicken itself is very plain, not Thai, but that means you can offer a selection of dippers: BBQ sauce, honey mustard, etc., as well as the peanut sauce. The peanut sauce was great and a nice change. I used cornflake crumbs (near shake n bake in your supermarket) instead of crushing cereal. I didn't have plain yogurt on hand so I used fat-free sour cream instead and it was fine. Watch the peanut sauce! Mine burned on the bottom (the rest of the sauce tasted fine), and the pan was a mess to clean."

"I grew up on oven-baked chicken, and if you like oven-baked chicken, this is one of the best. It's not KFC, but it's a terrific lighter alternatives if you're trying to eat healthier."
