Recipes I've Shared:

Breakfast Cookies (Vegan)

Have 2 or 3 of these instead of a chewy granola bar. :)

Bacon Cheeseburger Casserole (smaller/lighter batch)

Using less cheese and meat, but same amount of pasta

This is one of my favorite smoothies. You can leave out the honey if your bananas are very ripe and sweet but I love the combination.

Chicken Pot Pie with Biscuit Crust

This is a combo of my Chicken Pot Pie filling and my mother in-law's Biscuit Style Crust. They go together fabulously. This is awesome with a double crust, but if you are watching your fat intake, it is also yummy with just a top crust. Also, the homemade gravy is wonderful, but if you have leftover gravy or prefer to use canned or jarred, this is even easier. Enjoy!
