Dark Chocolate Pear Jam-Canning Recipe

This jam is so rich and yummy its sinful. Would make a great topping for waffles, or pancakes or would even be delicious on a slice of toast. My 9 year old daughter describes it as heaven in a jar.

This dip can be made with any seasons you choose, I use salt free seasonings to reduce the sodium content.

Spinach Gratin

A lighter version of Rachael Ray's Spinach Gratin.

Baked French Toast

Make the night before and then bake in the morning, super simple and yummy french toast!

Indian Fish Curry revised

This is my revamp of a recipe submitted by LONESOMEDOVE120, I added more veggies because I like to have lots of veggies in my curries, and I added some additional spices for more flavor. I also included quanties in my recipe to make it easier for others to follow.

Cucumber-Onion Ranch Salad

Simple, fast and refreshing salad made from cucumbers, grated onion and ranch dressing. My mom made this weekly in summer while I was growing up, I have made a few changes by reducing the amount of ranch she used and adding some reduced fat sour cream, and also adding fresh dill when I have on hand.

Niki's Garlicy Dip for Sweet Potato Fries or any Veggies

Warning, this recipe contains lots of garlic, if you are not a huge garlic fan then you will want to use much less garlic.
This is so great with my oven sweet potato fries or on fresh veggies for a great snack.

Hamburger & Veggie French Onion Soup

A creation based on French Onion soup with ground beef and veggies added to the mix to make a more filling meal.

Vegetable Fried Rice

My healthy at home version of fried rice, any veggies can be used, I make mine different a lot based on the fresh and frozen veggies that I have on hand.

Buffalo Sloppy Joes

Lighter version of Rachael Ray's Buffalo Sloppy Joes, I use half the oil, only 1lb of meat (I think 2 is just way too much). I also left off the blue cheese and instead of eating them on a regular bun I use Arnold's Sanwhich thins (not included in calorie info)
