I got this idea from a internet newsletter. However the one in the newsletter just didn't appeal to me. I knew that JoAnna had a really good Mac Salad that started like Mac and Cheese. So here is my frankenrecipe were I pieced together Jo's awesome Mac Salad, and what I thought would make a really neat autumn comfort style Mac and Cheese dish.
JoAnna created Creamy Cheesecake for her daughter in law, Angie, last month I tried Olive Garden's pumpkin cheesecake, and knew I had to replicate this recipe. I know Angie's creamy cheesecake was just the place to start, and boy was I right! This is my adaption of that recipe to make a gloriously delicious yet healthy version of Olive Garden's pumpkin cheesecake.
A TOPS friend of mine in Long Island used to make this for every TOPS occasion, it was exceptionally delicious. But, she would never share the recipe. Here's my healthy version as best as I can come close to her's.
This is sooo yummy, you won't miss pumpkin pie. And is as filling as a dessert can be!
Chocolate is my daughter Lela's favorite dessert. This is a healthy way for her to enjoy chocolate, and plenty of it!
This is sooooo good. The portions are HUGE. Reese's has nothing on this!
My husband, Vince, is big on meat and potato meals, and loves cheese, so this should be right up his alley. And thankfully I won't be worried about his health with this yummy but healthful version of Shepherd's pie.
Wish you were in the tropics, sipping on pina colada's basking in the sun, with tropical breezes passing by you?

If you like white chocolate, and you like strawberry shortcake you will love this. It's the most luscious, rich and creamy strawberry shortcake you'll ever make.
I took this to my book studies goody night and got rave reviews. One man said, Man, I never new eating diabetic, could taste so good!
I also think it holds together better, and taste better the second day. I like to leave it overnight in the fridge before cutting into it.
A healthy version of my mom's family favorite Shepherd's pie.
I never thought that Chocolate and Pumpkin went together......but once I tried it, I was hooked!
My husband Vince loves Oreo Cookies, this is a healthy version of my take on a Oreo Trifle.
My mom, Theresa, used to love Buster Parfaits from Dairy Queen when I was growing up, so this is for her!
This recipe will fill your house with a scrumptious aroma as the apple pastry bakes! What a wonderful way to welcome card party guests to you house--just put this into the oven as your friends arrive...then wait for the compliments!

Remember when a beloved United States president promised Americans "a chicken in every pot"? I bet he'd cast his vote for this truly creamy and chicken-y soup--and it'll win in a landslide at your house. (My son Tommy told me this soup was easy for a college boy to fix--and tasted like a chicken pot pie.)
Serves 4 (1 full cup)
This is so simple, and delicious as well, and you can't beat the calories.
This is my grandmothers famous Nacho Casserole that I have made over "healthy". No easy feat! But, grandchildren for miles around came running when this was on the menu!
I just love this custard, it is one of the most comforting desserts I can think of.
A wonderful replacement to traditional fatty, high calorie cole slaw. Great hot or cold.
If you like bread pudding, and you like peach cobbler, you will love this. It's a combo of the two. YUM!
When I took this to a Backyard BBQ, every one agreed this was definitely luscious and heavenly! Since it has ingredients that are available year around, you can have this bright salad even on the coldest of days while these flavors will make you feel you're on a tropical isle!
This is one of my favorite side dishes I've invented yet. It's sweet, it's savory, it's low calorie, and it's delicious! What more could you ask for?]

If you like Strawberry Milk Shakes, this is a must try. It's the thickest, creamiest, most luscious strawberry milk shake you will ever make!
So yummy! The aroma is so believable you may have to check the oven to make sure you aren't baking cookies!
The first time I made this, my sister asked, who was baking a cake? That is how powerful the aroma is.
This is so yummy! On a cold winter night, snuggle up with a large mug of this, and you'll feel warm comfort, and satisfaction.
It's just like grandma used to make! In fact it is my grandma's recipe, that I have done over healthy.
This custard was the only food I could tolerate while pregnant, so it's a great sick, or pregnant food choice as well!
You can save 10 calories by leaving out the bread. And it's still very good, and almost creamy.
