This sauce recipe was based on a Jo Mama's World Famous Spaghetti sauce recipe that I modified for taste. When I make this sauce, it quickly disappears in my house. Everyone seems to loves this sauce.

This recipe is for chicken chimichangos baked in the oven. It is an easy dish to make and gets high ratings in my house. Compliment this dish with some mexican rice for a nice dinner under 400 calories.

A cleaned up, South of the Border Mexican Recipe. I have been told by friends that came over to eat before I started dieting that these were the best marinated fajitas they ever had. I have slightly revised the recipe removing some oils and reducing the calories.

Ferber's Authentic Chicken Vindaloo
Very Good 4.6/5
(17 ratings)

A slightly modified, but rather Authentic Indian recipe. My wife and I love Indian food, especially vindaloos. Now that we are dieting, I have scaled down our favorite "red" Vindaloo recipe. This Vindaloo has a nice combination between the tomato sauce and the mustard, with just enough heat.

This is a delicious, light, refreshing dessert. It's low cal and sugar and can be made with the lite pie filling in any flavor. Note that this needs to be made the night before to soften the graham crackers.
