Recipe Rescue – New Feature Starting this Friday

Since the launch of our website and the release of our cookbook in 2004 (can you believe it’s been that long?) we’ve been taking your favorite family recipes and giving them a healthy makeover. Unlike many of the so-called “healthy” recipes out there that are sugar and fat free, our makeovers – rescues if you will – are lower in sodium and the bad saturated fat, but they’re bursting with great nutrition and flavor.

Our mission has always been to weave good-for-you ingredients into everything we make … things like whole grains, nuts, vegetables, beans, and healthy oils. That said, we never sacrifice the great familiar flavors that you and your family love.

Starting this Friday, we’ll post a regular Recipe Rescue article to the blog. Here’s how the new feature will work:

  • If you have a recipe you’d like us to rescue, send us a copy at From cookies and casseroles to pasta and pies, we’ll consider them all.
  • Every few weeks, we’ll pick one recipe for the official rescue. We’ll add a dash (or two) of our makeover magic and then return the made-over recipe to the person who sent it.
  • To make sure our Recipe Rescue is a hit, we’ll ask that person to make the dish at home and then try it out on his or her family.

We’re so excited to feature your recipes and your family’s reaction to the changes. Stay tuned for our first installment of Recipe Rescue this Friday when we spotlight a family from Kansas and their favorite holiday recipe for spinach balls. Cutting the recipe’s 12 tablespoons of butter down to just four seemed like mission impossible but … (come back on Friday to see what happened)!
