kacie- i know what you mean about the diet, looking at these all day long is terrible for my waistline! If you're looking for healthy dishes, our fast & easy dinners are generally well balanced (although we've been known to splurge) - also there's Lite'n it Up, a Healthy Recipe group over on TeamSugar. There are some great finds there!
