How about making Chicken Cordon Bleu

Pound boneless skinless chicken breast till thim.
Place 1 Laughing Cow cheese wedge on the breast(whatever flavor you like)
Add 2 thin slice of lean honey ham lunchmeat.
Roll it up and put toothpicks in it to hold and bake in the oven at 375 for about 25-30 min (depending on the size of the breasts)

serve with roasted asparagus spears and baked sweet potatoes

low-cal meal but a little fancier than the norm!

yummy!

If you like Asian-inspired flavors, I think this looks really special/fancy: Martha's Beef and Scallion Rolls (use low-sodium soy sauce if that's a concern). In the picture it's served with some veggies (broccoli and bok choy) sprinkled with sesame seeds, and I bet it would be good served on top of brown rice, if that's something you eat. I just found the recipe the other day and haven't made it yet, but it's on the list for next week!

For dessert definitely something with berries (reds and purples are very Valentine's day!). I don't really bake or make desserts so I've got no ideas for you there.

I love to make a version of this where I dip it in egg whites, then coat it with wheat germ and then bake it. It give me the illusion that it's the real deal.

How about filet mignon and seared sea scallops or grilled shrimp? We're doing that tonight. You could do some roasted asparagus to go along with it.

Grilled lamb chops, I always think lamb chops are tasty and relatively healthy (good portion size!).

Do you need to increase the oven temp or baking time for crispiness?

I like to make a big shrimp cocktail as an appetizer, because it's low calorie, heathy, filling, and yet decadent too.

Baha Shrimp Cocktail

My absolute favorite shrimp cocktail is one I've had at mexican restaurants, and I duplicated it very closely at home.

Cold, cooked shrimp (other firm, sweet cooked and chilled seafood can be substituted or added - like scallops, chunk crab meat, lobster...)
Pace Picante sauce and/or fresh salsa or pico de gallo from the deli
Tomato Juice and/or lime juice to thin the salsa (if desired)
cilantro
sweet onion (red onion or scallion)
avocado (entirely optional, but so good. The calories add up fast, so use it sparingly or budget the avocado in).

Basically you mix the salsa into the shrimp, making sure you have enough to cover the shrimp. Thin it with a little tomato/lime/lemon juice if desired (restaurants serve it very soupy like gazpacho, but I usually don't add that much). And add the other ingredients to taste. Careful with the avocado because it is high in calorie and fat - but it's a good fat and a little goes a long way. Dice it as small or as large as you'd like and stir it in. If you don't like avocado or don't want to spend the fat/calories, leave it out.

You can spice it up with cayenne or tobasco and add a little splenda if it is too tart.

I know it's not a very precise recipe, but it is so awesome. In it's simplest form I have just mixed shrimp into deli fresh salsa. It is really good, and a nice change of pace from the horseradish classic (which I love too).

I tried this last night and it was delicious! Definitely a keeper!
