Cooking Light’s Best 25 Recipes

Chocolate mint bars

Cooking Light is celebrating its 25th anniversary by publishing, both in print and online,  its best 25 recipes. As they say, “25 years, 25 dishes. We’re going back in time to count down our best of the best, from 2011 to 1987.”

The collection, gathered by its recipe archivists, has some interesting features. We noticed that five include chicken (including Bourbon Smoked Chicken and Malaysian Chicken PIzza). There were an equal number of non-meat entrees ( Bucatini with Mushrooms, Risotto with Porcini Mushrooms and Mascarpone, and Pasta with Roasted Butternut Squash and Shallots) as fish-based entrees (Fried Catfish, BBQ Roasted Salmon, and Greek-style Scampi). 

The group that perhaps intrigued us the most, though, were their versions of  recipes that are usually considered too decadent for healthy eating: Chicken Tetrazzini, Fettuccine Alfredo, and Chocolate Mint Bars.

Check out the entire collection, and don’t forget that EYB has indexed Cooking Light issues back into 2009 to make your personal searches much easier.
