Cooking with the Moms
Gooey and gloppy are just two of the words that come to mind when we think about classic casseroles. Typically made with creamed soups and lots of butter and full-fat cheese, casseroles get a bad nutrition rap because they have a tendency to stick to the ribs... and to the waistline. For this week's show, we decided to add a contemporary twist to casseroles by skimming away some of the bad fat and the excess calories and by incorporating some good-for-you ingredients (things like light soups, vegetables, whole wheat pasta blends)... and we do it without sacrificing the time-honored flavors. Our featured recipe is Silly Salmon Noodle Bake.

For today's show, we hop to one of the hottest food trends for 2010: meat-less meals. Vegetarian diets are growing in popularity. In fact, 3.2 percent of U.S. adults, or 7.3 million people, follow a vegetarian-based diet. To join the bandwagon, we created two new vegetarian recipes: Very Veggie Chili and Silky Chocolate Caramel Pie. The chili features Galaxy's really delicious soy-based Veggie cheese (completely cholesterol and saturated-fat free) and the pie is made with a surprise ingredient: tofu!!
