Asparagus, Ham and Peppers Egg Casserole

This is a low carb version of the traditional egg casseroles. The veggies can be swapped out with whatever you have on hand.

Anni's Lowfat Mayo

I hate all of the low fat mayos so I came up with this version which is less calories and fat and much better tasting. I use it a a basis for coleslaw and salad dressing by adding some buttermilk to thin it down.

Green Bean & Corn Salad

This is my basic pantry salad, great for the winter when fresh veggies are scarce. In the summer great with fresh veggies from the market

New Year's Black-Eyed Peas with Country Ham

If you have never had black-eyed peas from dryed you are in for a treat.

Green and Beans with Country Ham

This is an updated lower calorie version of an old family Southern favorite. If you are fortunate enough to have a country ham you must use some of the little bits that are trimmed off to flavor your greens. If you don't have country ham then any ham will do. Go for the lean parts and this will be a healthy recipe.

Ranch Chiles Rellenos

From EatingWell
Serve with Ancho Chile Salsa

Dark green, shiny poblano chiles are the traditional choice for chiles rellenos. They have great flavor, but may be too spicy for some tastes. Anaheim chiles are reliably mild substitutes. You can stuff chiles with almost anything: cheese, shrimp, smoked fish, tuna and sour cream, grilled vegetables or crabmeat. For a larger crowd, the recipe can be doubled. Serve the chiles rellenos with beans and rice.

Anni's Broccolli Pasta Salad

A lighter version of the traditional broccolli salad with ham and cheese but with added brown rice penne. Make a great liunch to keep in the fridge and eat on all week.
