Quick and Easy Creamy Mushroom Chicken
Very Good 4.4/5
(69 ratings)

I created this dish for dinner one day when I was pressed for time with ingredients I had on hand and it was an instant hit! A low carb delight as is, but you can serve over wide whole wheat noodles or brown rice if you are not watching carbs.

Cyn's Mock Potato Casserole
Very Good 4.6/5

You'll never believe that this creamy, rich dish doesn't have any potatoes! It's also high in protein for a side with 10 grams per serving!

Nancy's Tilapia (or Chicken or Veal) Piccata
Very Good 4.8/5
(44 ratings)

This is my own creation. Sweet, mild, healthy, non-fishy tilapia is complimented by lemon, capers, butter, broth, and white wine in this satisfying and deceptively easy meal. I like my piccata lemony with touches of onion, garlic, and capers to round out the taste. This is a basic recipe for 1 lb. of filets. Please reduce this recipe accordingly if you use fewer filets, unless you want the leftunders as lunch or another dinner, like I do, if all is not eaten during the first go-‘round. I am a strong believer in flexibility, so experiment and substitute most any flaky white fish, pounded-flat veal or chicken cutlets, according to your creativity, pantry contents, budget, ingredient-availability, and personal tastes. I would greatly appreciate your feedback on this recipe, including any suggestions, comments, and input. Thank you for reading and trying this recipe! SparkPeople rocks my world!

Creamy Burrito Bake
Very Good 4.5/5
(45 ratings)

This is a very easy dish. The fat and calories can be lowered even further with low fat sour cream, cheese and soup. Ground turkey would work well.

Nancy's Ol' Fashioned, Easy, Simple Chicken Soup...Un-Chained Recipe Contest!
Very Good 4.1/5
(30 ratings)

This is (a) an improvement on Corner Bakery Cafe's Mom's Chicken Noodle Soup; (b) a large pot of vitamin-rich, naturally sweet, nutritious, chicken soup that (c) is very easy to make, (d) freezes well, (e) feeds about a dozen hungry people, and (f) I make throughout the year after having and making many different variations on a theme for many years

Although it can take a little time to get the chicken off the bones, it's SO worth it! Also, if you don't want to use a whole chicken or shredding it just isn't your thing, you can use chicken parts or whole breasts instead, cut off the big chunks, and dice or shred them. They'll take less cooking time, too.

There's nothing better for you, especially when ONLY chicken soup will do! It's not ambrosia (nectar of the gods), but it's as close as I can get! I appreciate your feedback and input. Enjoy! SparkPeople rocks my world! Nancy, a/k/a KEEPITMOVING

Very Good 4.1/5

I just made this up with the ingredients I had on hand. I think it turned out pretty tasty.
I didn't realize how healthy it was before I entered it in the recipe calculator- 19% of your daily iron, 8g fiber, and 10g protein, all with only 211 calories. Not too shabby.

Spicy Eggplant Curry
Very Good 4.1/5
(8 ratings)

This is a quick and delicious meal with a kick that delivers the sweetness of soft eggplant with a kick of jalapeno (optional). I like to make this in bulk and then freeze it. It's a real staple in my diet.

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 is a lasagna made with Eggplant, instead of traditional pasta noodles. This is really a great tasting dish. This has been confirmed by the kids who will eat it, without knowing they are eating eggplant. I was once told that if the kids eat it, it must be pretty good. I hope you try it.
