Recipes I've Shared:

HOT CHICKEN SALAD SANDWICHES

Below I list the ingredients from the original recipe and from adaptations my mom and I made. The nutrition information is from the adapted lighter recipe.

Rice Krispie Sugar Cookies

I made this up combining and altering two main recipes. They are pretty good and taste wheat/nutty.

Fiber Chocolate Muffins

This is an adaptation of a recipe using a brownie mix. I did not have a mix and wanted to try the recipe, so made the brownie base from scratch and then added the yogurt, pumpkin,baking soda, oat bran and changed half of the oat bran to fiber one ground. I loved them! And the are 0-1 point each with the WW system.

Pizza Dip

Banana Chocolate Chip Scones

I had to add 1/4 to 1/2 cup more flour, likely because I was loose in measuring the banana, so it was too much and the dough too sticky. But they turned out GREAT.

Banana Blueberry Coffee Cake

Using blueberries picked TODAY (July 2008) during Michigan blueberry season.

Oatmeal Date Bars

Taste great served warm, with brownie type texture
adapted from recipe already on Sparkrecipes

Turkey Cabbage Roll Casserole

This is a slightly adapted recipe from a candida cleanse recipe website that my husband and I have enjoyed, even though he doesn't typically like cabbage! It is not TOTALLY sugar free, but only 1.8 grams per serving, or less depending on the tomato juice you use.

Low-Fat Carrot Cake Muffins

These carrot muffins are made with applesauce instead of oil to help retain their moisture while lowering the fat content. Studded with pineapple and raisins, they would make a sweet treat for breakfast or an on-the-go snack.

Pistachio Yellow Cake Cupcakes

Also good with Pillsbury Reduced Sugar Chocolate Frosting; Can also use carob chips, which saves a little on calories, fat and sugar.

Pumpkin-Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins

Nutrition info is without glaze

Coconut Cake with Buttercream Frosting from Cooking Light

Garnish the cake plate with sugar-frosted cranberries and rosemary sprigs.

Double-Chocolate Cupcakes from Cooking Light

These cupcakes are easy to make, and because simple ingredients are used, it's best to purchase premium cocoa powder and dark chocolate. Since they're studded with dark chocolate chunks, just dusting them with powdered sugar is enough to decorate these treats. Bake them in muffin cup liners. A dozen of these are a terrific holiday treat to bring to coworkers at the office.
