Golden Edition Deal-A-Meal Cookbook page, 54/55. This was my very first tuna melt ever. I really liked it! I have had this over and over since. And now a days it's even better, cause you can use light whole grain bread! 5 stars!

Golden Edition Deal-A-Meal Cookbook page 110/111. I really love these! They are GREAT! I do not use plastic wrap. And I make several versions of these. One I like best is, 1 TB of Parmesan cheese, with 1 Laughing Cow Light Wedge, instead of 3 TBs of Parmesan Cheese, and 1 TB of Walden Farms 10 calories Pesto, and Italian seasonings in place of the oregano! It is a awesome combo! Also I do not use margarine, so I do not have to close a Fat window. I just use a few drops of water (not spoons, drops). If you use the pesto, you don't need any water or margarine at all!

Golden Edition Deal-A-Meal Cookbook page 118/119. These get three cupcakes. They are very tastey, and easy to make. However, it is hard to find these kind of microwavable muffin pans. And the serving size is very very tiny. So that is why they get only 3 stars.

Golden Edition Deal-A-Meal Cookbook page 126/127. This was good. I particularly liked the topping with the bread and bacon. However, I am not a huge mac n' cheese fan. And because of prep time, and portion size compared to exchanges used (calories) I give it a 3 out of a possible 5 stars rating. If you are a big mac n' cheese fan, you may feel it is worth your time and effort however.

Golden Edition Deal-A-Meal Cookbook page 128/129. 5 stars for this baby! It's one of our families favorite. Maybe it will become one of yours too! It does have several ingredients however. So it may take some time to make. But, the taste definitely makes up for the time. Also it is very eye pleasing if you serve it according to the directions.

Golden Edition Deal-A-Meal Cookbook, page 136/137. This is probably mine, and my families most used recipe out of this book. It's so easy and yummy, it's pure comfort food, and is made often. Even through years we weren't trying to lose weight we would come back to this recipe again and again. However, I will say for time, and my own taste, I usually leave out the poultry seasoning, and use more garlic. The only veggies I use are zucchini and onions. I have added mushrooms often though too to it. With out a doubt this one is a 5 star recipe.

Golden Edition Deal-A-Meal Cookbook, page 141/142. My families favorite recipe in the whole book! I can not count the number of times my mom has made this. It is a staple for company food. It's very easy to double, quadruple, and so on this recipe for large dinners. And every one loves it! No one will suspect it's "diet"! 5 stars!

Golden Edition Deal-A-Meal Cookbook, page 142/143. This is really comfort food. The only thing I didn't like about this was the small portion size. I would have liked to have had a bigger portion. But, it is very tasty! 4 stars!
