The Food Dish
With cold winter weather settled in and healthy New Year’s goals warming up, dinner should not only be comforting and delicious but nutritious and nourishing, too. If eating less or eating better is on your to-do list this year, dig into these low-calorie meals that are sure to satisfy.
This slow-cooker dish makes wonderful leftovers, hot or cold. Fresh garlic and ginger strengthen the immune system and aid the body in fighting off winter colds. Look for a lean pork roast to reduce calories; I usually buy tenderloin.
· 1⁄2 cup lite soy sauce
· 1/3 cup brown sugar
· 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
· 1 teaspoon sesame oil
· 3–4 garlic cloves, sliced thin

Gooey Caramel Pull-Aparts
Recipe by Six Sisters
- 16 frozen dinner rolls (Rhodes rolls are the best)
- 1 pkg. (3.5 ounces) cook n serve butterscotch pudding (not instant)
- 1/2 cup chopped pecans (or walnuts)
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 6 Tbls melted butter
Thaw frozen roll dough in a zip lock bag for about 2 hours just until thawed. Don’t let them rise. Cut each roll into 6 pieces. We have found that scissors are the easiest way to cut the dough. Just make sure they are sanitized.
Grease bundt pan (or 2 bread pans). Sprinkle nuts on bottom. Arrange 8 of the cut rolls over nuts. Sprinkle 1/2 package of dry pudding over rolls. Mix sugar and melted butter together and drizzle half over rolls. Then repeat with the other 8 rolls cut up, pudding, and sugar/butter mixture. Can sprinkle with a little bit of cinnamon.

From orange creamsicle to mint and classic milk chocolate, fudge comes in all shapes and sizes. (Just check out these no-bake Reese's fudge bars we love.) So this holiday season, we at LDS Living are on a quest to find the most delicious fudge recipes!
Here are the rules (you must abide by each for your recipe to be considered):
1) Recipes must be original. Renaming other recipes simply won’t do; we’re looking for your best recipes. Family recipes are great, but if you’ve improved on a commercial recipe until it’s totally your own, that’s okay, too.
Warm up this winter by thinking beyond simple chocolate with these eight tasty twists on traditional hot cocoa.
Cold weather and hot chocolate go hand-in-hand. But don't get bored this year with plain chocolate cocoa--instead, try one of these alternative recipes which feature different forms of hot chocolate like truffles and thick Italian cocoa, as well as special flavor cameos like raspberries and Oreo cookies.
Inspired by Willy Wonka's chocolate river, this creamy cocoa is thick, but still smooth enough to swallow (like a pudding). In fact, The Say at Home Chef advises that this particular "hot chocolate" is also amazing to try cold.
