I love to cook and I watch all the cooking programs when I'm not outside with my new doggie Chevy. I used to love gardening, but I live in a condo now and just have a small yard and do what I can.

Holiday Shrimp Salad
Incredible! 5.0/5
(2 ratings)

I made this a couple years ago for Thanksgiving and my family has been asking for it again ever since. So I made it for this year's Thanksgiving get-together, but I lightened it up some. I could have bought fat-free or lower-fat mayo too, but it was out of my price range this week! :(

I know it sounds like a really weird combination of ingredients, but it comes out very good!

This is a version of one of my versions of cioppino. Cioppino can be described as a seafood stew or soup and is an Italian dish. There are many different recipes floating around and there is no wrong or right way to do it when you think about it... I just think if you dont add garlic you ruin it ;) -dont forget to laugh! My grandfather was from Italy so there are some italian foods that I can make... This is my version of one that I LOVED growing up. This is a single serving dinner or lunch. It is great when you serve it with toasted whole wheat bread to dip with. It takes just under 20 minutes to make. The calories are low enough that you can add your own little twists for a personal cioppino spin-off of your own!

Very Good 4.8/5

There is almost no fat in this recipe. Recipe can be doubled to 48-52 shrimp which is enough to feed a crowd! Cooking time is estimated depending on the size of the shrimp. Serve with pineapple or a fruit salsa.

Easy way to whip up a seafood curry. Any paste can be used, and a seafood mix can be replaced with prawns, shrimp, crab, calimari, fillets, or any other single fish or mixture you want, If coconut flavoured light evaporated milk cannot be obtained, just add a few drops of coconut essence to an ordinary can of fat reduced evaporated milk

Instant coffee in the batter intensifies the chocolate flavor. Beating the sugar and eggs together gives the baked brownies a crackly surface.

I LOVE chicken & dumplings so when I found this I added my own spin to it and lowered the fat and calories. This is the best chicken and dumplings I've ever had which is amazing since I'm never satisfied with my cooking! You can have a full cup of this hearty comfort food for only 284 calories and 3.8 grams of fat! The sodium could be reduced if homemade biscuits are used instead of the canned biscuits, but if sodium isn't a problem this is a very fast and easy way to make chicken & dumplings!
