Spicy Chickpea Soup
Rating: Unrated
Chickpeas are rich in both types of dietary fiber, which are important for maintaining heart health and for stabilizing blood sugar levels. Pam Anderson uses them as the base for this Indian-flavored creamy (though cream-free) soup, which she prepares by first pureeing it, then simmering it, to save time. "Pureed beans give you richness without having to enrich the soup," she says. Slideshow:  More Healthy Soup Recipes 
Good News Pam Anderson likes to serve sliced tenderloin—a very lean cut of pork—with a tangy raisin-and-ginger-flavored sauce that tastes much more decadent than it actually is, thanks to a secret ingredient: cornstarch, which gives the sauce body while avoiding added fat. More Pork Recipes
Perfect Roast Turkey

Preparing a brine is an important part of learning how to cook turkey. Note that you'll need to brine this turkey for 10 to 12 hours before roasting it. Don't worry if a small portion of the turkey is not submerged in the brine. Slideshow: More Holiday Turkeys Plus: Ultimate Thanksgiving Guide 
Light and Crispy Waffles
Rating: Unrated
When we made these simple waffles from Pam Anderson's cookbook, Cook Smart, their rich buttermilk flavor and crisp yet light texture won over even longtime fans of yeast-based waffle. The recipe can be doubled, tripled, even quadrupled, just don't stack the waffles—they will become moist and limp. If necessary, recrisp the waffles directly on a rack in a 200°F oven. More Brunch Ideas
