Roasted Squash Soup
Very Good 4.0/5
(61 ratings)

Try a two for one: The next time you are turning on the oven to 375 degrees, roast the squash, cool it slightly, peel and package to freeze. You'll have butternut squash on hand whenever you need it, and you can have dinner on the table in no time!

Mini Apple Tarts
Very Good 4.3/5
(83 ratings)

Instead of a whole pie, try making bite-size tarts. The diminutive desserts cook quicker and are automatically portion controlled. Plus, they're easier to make for a crowd, and there's no need for a fork and plate.

Love pumpkin pie? Hate the guilt? The preservatives of the store made brands? This is an easy to make and bake pumpkin pie, best of all using fat free milk, egg whites, and low fat pie crust cut the calories and fat more than in half! This tastes great and is excellent with fat free cool whip!!! Feel free to make it full fat if you dare, or add a little bit more spices for more of kick. Great for thanksgiving!! Enjoy!

Green Bean and Mushroom Casserole
Good 3.9/5

A re-working of the traditional Thanksgiving side dish. Extra Mushrooms and garlic hide the fact that you are using low-fat dairy products.
