"My family loves this dish—even my picky 5-year-old," says RuthAnn Clore of West Peoria, Illinois. Our Test Kitchen helped her slash the fat in her recipe for a sweet corn bake with fewer calories but all the flavor of the original.
I have to watch my fat intake, so I'm always looking for ways to make my cooking as healthy as possible. I adapted a family recipe to fit my diet. The better-for-you broccoli bake takes advantage of several fat-free or reduced-fat products. It calls for fat-free mayonnaise, reduced-fat cheese, reduced-fat crackers and reduced-fat reduced-sodium condensed soup.—Carolyn Creasman, Gastonia, North Carolina
Even Janet Hornsby's kids would eat their spinach when served this dish, but she wanted to serve it without the guilt. We slimmed it down so she could do just that. The new recipe has a whopping 80% less fat and saturated fat, and the calories and cholesterol were reduced by more than 60%.—Taste of Home's Test Kitchen
This sweet holiday side dish is buttery, sugary and big on pineapple flavor, but now it's not nearly as bad for you as the original. In fact, you might not want to wait on the holidays. —Nancy Brown, Dahinda, Illinois
