Recipes I've Shared:

Chickpea Sauce

This was pulled from the back of a Mrs. Miller's Noodles package.

Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

this has been adapted from a recipe i found on allrecipes.com. the original recipe, called "nanna's banana bread", was submitted by sharon parenteau.

the original recipe called for walnuts, but we have nut allergies in our house so i substituted chocolate chips.

the original recipe also calls for the batter to be baked in a 9x5 loaf pan for 55-60 minutes - in case you'd rather go that route.

we serve this over brown rice. the rice is NOT included in the calculation.

Weelicious Maple Pork Tenderloin

we serve this over plain couscous. the couscous is NOT included in the calculation.

Weelicious Baked Ziti

recipe credit goes to weelicious.com.

Weelicious Orange Chicken

recipe credit goes to weelicious.com. in this version i used low sodium instead of regular soy sauce. i also couldn't find snow peas at our store, so i substituted sugar snap peas.

i served this on top of brown rice. the brown rice is NOT included in the calculation.

Weelicious Chicken & Wild Rice Casserole

The credit for this recipe goes to weelicious.com - a great website for easy and healthy family-friendly recipes.

this could be made even lower in fat by using fat free sour cream and cheese. personally i chose to leave the cheese as is and used light sour cream (instead of the full fat the original recipe calls for). you could also lower the sodium by using plain wild rice instead of the zatarain's new orleans style wild rice that i calculated here.

it's pretty simple to make and is very filling! hope you like it as much as our family does!

Apple Cinnamon Chip Cookies

This recipe was given to me by a friend. She told me that it came from a recipe book she got while working for Hershey.

Recipe from Runners' World Magazine - June 2009 issue

Scalloped Cabbage

This is my Grandma's recipe - calculating it the way she makes it just to see how much damage I do every New Year's Day. :) Obviously this could be made in a lower fat/calorie way.

Could definitely be slimmed down, but I'm entering it in the old-fashioned way just so I know how to count it on Thanksgiving. :)
