Chile Relleno Casserole

This version was made with only 8 eggs: it is better if you use a full 10-12.
The heat in the green chiles is minimal when they are canned without seeds, but you can kick it up or down depending on your salsa selection. I like a plain medium-heat chunky salsa.
This has been one of my favorite foods since early childhood, when my father used to make it for Rose Bowl parade parties in Pasadena, and it was always my Birthday-Dinner request.-- I hope that you enjoy it!

Sweet and Savory Baked Sweet Potato Wedges

This recipe is great with sweet potatoes or with baking potatoes-- they are slightly crisp on the outside and soft on the inside.
This recipe is calculated for 8 side-dish-sized portions, but it is delicious and filling enough to serve as 4 entree-sized portions instead.
Enjoy!

Christmas Fettuccine

A pretty pasta sauce that tastes rich and creamy while containing multiple vegetables.
A new household favorite!

Decadent Asian-Style Noodles in Peanut Sauce

This recipe is not the healthiest thing on this site. However, when paired with a hearty helping of roasted or steamed vegetables, it makes a decadent delight with creamy hints of sweet and salty that complement the spiciness.

After-Workout Crunchy Sweet Seafood Salad

After I work out, I am starving-- I could eat an entire herd of buffalo. So I have started to come up with recipes that are reasonably fast to prep, and that have a LOT of protein, some healthy fat, and some crunchy freggies to get me full and satisfied stat!

Renaissance-Festival-Style Apple Dumpling

My all-time Favorite sweet treat at the Renaissance Festival: recreated in a slightly healthier way for when I absolutely Must have dessert. Provides a bit of flaky pastry, a bit of spiced apple-y sweetness, and a convenient single serving to prevent overindulging. Lovely!

Jeanne's Rice Pudding

This is a satisfyingly sweet and delicious treat that fills the whole house with the smell of baked cinnamon and apples.

It makes a good breakfast or healthy dessert. If you have leftover rice from dinner, this can be mixed up and baked the night before to be ready for a quick-warm-up breakfast.

Curried Crunchy Garbanzo Snacks ( Chick Peas )

This recipe is for when you absolutely must have something crunchy, salty, and nutty to snack on-- and you don't want to break your eating plan. Amazingly low-cal, low-fat, and high in protein-- a good snack to have around for holiday and super bowl parties!

They are also delicious with other spice blends when you aren't feeling the curry: I have posted a spicy maple version as well!

Baked Mint Curry Tilapia Fillets

This is an excellent sweet, spicy, healthy dish for cool fall days. Use Tilapia for high protein and mild flavor, but the recipe can be used for chicken breasts or other lean protein. Serve over brown rice or Quinoa.

Crunchy Healthy Nuggets

This recipe is from an article on Sparkpeople.com, so I was surprised not to find it in the recipe database. I added the dash of salt and pepper to taste. I also recommend cutting the chicken into really small chunks-- it worked better for us!

A tasty recipe for those days when the temptation is strong!

Hearty Vgetable Minestrone

I added water several times while cooking this: both the pasta and the barley will suck up water. Add the barley Earlier, add the noodles about 15 minutes before you serve. Use low-sodium canned vegetables or frozen vegetables to get this on the table in a flash on a grey rainy day: you have just enough time to change into clean dry socks before it is ready!
