Check Out My Recipes in The Cooking Light Double Holiday Issue

Are you ready for the holidays? Yes, I know it's only October 25th, but Thanksgiving is in 31 days. OK, now that I've got you in a good panic, let me help.

The double holiday issue of Cooking Light magazine is on stands, and you need to get a copy. Why? Because it contains 332 healthy recipes and tips to make your Thanksgiving dinner a healthy, smashing success.

Plus, I've got several recipes in this issue. See the string beans and mashed sweet potatoes on the cover? Those are my recipes!

This hefty issue gives you with everything you need for your holiday dinner: Scores of delicious appetizers, drinks, entrees, sides, and desserts. If you're wondering which recipes are mine, here they are. (Please note that all photos are courtesy of Cooking Light.)
