For the past few weeks I’ve been challenging myself to eat 500-calorie dinners 5 nights a week from our new book EatingWell 500-Calorie Dinners. I have a small confession to make: I haven’t been sticking to the menus...exactly. I have been keeping my dinners to 500 calories, but I’ve also been making a few substitutions here and there. Check out my menu for this week here.

I keep swapping in one thing over and over. No, it’s not wine. And it’s not ice cream. It’s one of my secret weapons for making this diet work for me. It’s ...

I’ve never been able to diet. I can’t do it because I enjoy eating too much. (And since I’m a food editor, it is a hazard of the job!) Plus I never want to feel like I’m depriving myself. But like most people, I have a few extra pounds around my middle that I can’t wait to trim.

I like to say that my favorite food group is cheese. I know cheese is not an actual food group, but it’s so delicious it ought to be. Even though it can be high in calories and saturated fat there are still ways to enjoy cheese as part of a healthy diet. Plus, all cheese is a rich source of calcium, so sampling the abundance helps to strengthen your bones. (Try these 20+ recipes for bone health.)

I was inspired to offer the following recipes and tips for healthy ways to enjoy cheese after I recently went to the Vermont Cheesemakers’ Festival, a special five-course cheese dinner. Here are some pictures from the festival:
