Fave tweaked comfort foods

Fave tweaked comfort foods

I've now lost 210 pounds and gone from a size 28 to a size 4. I was born on a ranch in SD and grew up on home cooking. We ate for every occasion. And emotion. I'm collecting, sharing, making and tweaking some of my very favorites.

you could easily reduce the fats in this by using egg whites and subbing low cal baking margarine, silken tofu, or applesauce instead of crisco or butter) I have before, but my 10 yr old was baking for the first time and she stuck with the recipe!

Cookbook creator says: If it gets too thick, I add V8 juice. Also, you can just dump all of this in your crockpot and cook it on low all day. (I don't even brown the meat, just put it on the bottom and layer up. The lid stays on, the heat stays even, the bacteria stays out. But....that's just me.

No Bake Graham Cracker Cheesycake
Very Good 4.6/5
(468 ratings)

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.
