Hope you enjoy them as much as I did!

Recipe News: Chocolate Milkshake Recipe: 4 Chocolicious Chocolate Milkshakes

It was inevitable, I guess, that once chocolate syrup was poured over ice cream in a dish, that it would one day wind up in a glass. For the past fourty years or so, millions of people have enjoyed a frosty chocolate milkshake as part of a traditional fast food meal of hamburger and French fries. Of course, it’s just as delicious all by itself, but the fast food restaurants have caught on to our absolute love for the chocolate shake.

  • Chocolate Cherry Milkshake

  • Chocolate Cheesecake Milkshake

  • Chunky Monkey Milkshake

Recipe News: Inexpensive, tasty recipe for Valentine’s Day

Think tender, delicious pork tenderloin baked wrapped in bacon. I was planning a dinner party for this past weekend when I stumbled over the pork tenderloins on sale at the Safeway for $2.99 pound (good through Tuesday, February 10th). Pork should not be overcooked. I got mine out of the oven at 155 degrees and let them rest wrapped in aluminum foil which would take them up to 160 degrees. (This is the recommended temperature). I brined my pork tenderloins for about 4 hours, this is not a necessity – just something I like to do to add moisture and flavor to my meat and poultry when I can.

  • Roast Pork Tenderloin wrapped in Bacon

Recipe News: Recipe Doctor: Garlic Mozzarella Cheese Balls

Q. The garlic rolls at Tomatina restaurants are "to die for" but oh so greasy. I would love for you to do your thing and make a more healthful version using a bread machine (I'm not much for the kneading of bread).

A. I've had this signature appetizer at Tomatina, and it's more like, "would you like some roll with your garlic?" So, I'm going to tone down the garlic a smidgen and take the olive oil down a notch as well. I'm making the dough with half whole-wheat flour and a tablespoon of olive oil, some water, a teaspoon of sugar (to feed the yeast), some salt (to control yeast growth) and of course "¦ the yeast.

I decided to make these garlic balls more satisfying by adding some part skim mozzarella cheese to the middle of the balls. When I tasted these rolls at Tomatina's last year, I remember thinking some melted mozzarella in the middle would be the perfect touch. My culinary predictions don't always work out but it did this time.

Recipe News: Favorite recipes line up for the Super Chili Bowl

Since the NFL season began back in September, the Howards have maintained a delicious homage to their favorite football team. Each week on their Web site, chicagofootballchili.com, they've pitted two original chili recipes against each other - one symbolic of the Bears, the other representative of the opposing team. For example, the Dec. 22 challenge pitted Urlacher Christmas Chili against Green Bay Packers Beer and Brats Chili. You already know the ending.

Dan and Dawn Howard, of Lockport, run a Web site that featured different Bears chili recipes versus an opposing team's chili recipe all season. Now the two are gearing up for the Super Bowl.

"It was a very successful first year," said Dan. "We've had about 6,500 views of our site. As first-time Web site builders, we weren't really sure what to expect traffic-wise, but 500 views over the season would have thrilled us."

Overall, the couple has published 42 original chili recipes this year. That includes two new Super Bowl recipes currently being featured.

  • Chicago Style Deep Dish Pizza Chili

Recipe News: Creamy tomato & cheese, but lighter: Recipes slash fat content up to 81%

TOMATO SOUP and a grilled cheese sandwich make a popular meal, but its calorie count and fat content could surprise you. OliveGarden.com's recipe for cream of tomato and basil soup contains 482 calories and 34 fat grams per cup, but I slim it down by using a mixture of tomato puree, mashed potato and half-and-half in place of two cups of heavy cream. I also substitute chicken broth for white wine.

My alterations to this soup cut the calories by 74 percent and slash the fat by 80 percent.

The "Taste of Home" cookbook's recipe for three-cheese grilled cheese has at least 703 calories and 59 fat grams per sandwich, but I lighten it up by choosing light wheat bread and reduced-fat cheeses. My version keeps the gooey texture but eliminates the butter. Those changes trim the calories by 66 percent and slice off 81 percent of the fat.

You can have one of my three-cheese grilled cheese sandwiches plus a cup of my cream of tomato and basil soup for 365 calories and 17.7 fat grams.
