On today's show, we ring in the New Year with recipes and tips for sticking to your New Year's Resolutions. Of course we don't know what your resolutions are but we can take a guess!

To help families eat right in 2009, we have a recipe for Confetti Chicken Wraps a healthy alternative to fast food (because it's super fast) and Smooshed Sweet Potatoes, a kid-friendly dish that's sure to help everyone get more veggies on the table.

There's nothing better than getting together with family and friends to swap holiday cookies. Even though we're dietitians, when it comes to holiday treats, our attitude is more elf than scrooge.

In this show, we offer tips for hosting a holiday cookie swap and share two of our favorite recipe makeovers: Ginger Drizzle Cookies and Peppermint Meringue Snowballs (which are perfect for people on a gluten-free diet).
