adapted from the recipe at the Liluna.com blog
so named by my daughter ;) a healthy chocolate chip cookie with whole wheat and applesauce!
Just wanted to add a little depth to the family favorite! Usually use more ketchup on top, but ran out.
wanted some healthy ones for groundhog day ;) Adapted from the recipe that comes with your vita mix. ;)
quick - almost like crepes though
with whole wheat tortillas
adapted from the recipe in the Xagave cook book for Whole wheat carrot pineapple cake
from Canadian Lentils site -
this is a combination of recipes off the internet
this is from a recipe in my hubby's favorite cookbook "Where's Mom Now That I Need Her?". We used ground turkey instead of ground beef and added some cabbage. Yum! This is also about 3 times the regular recipe. Makes enough for leftovers.
this is from Cookinglight.com. I changed some of the ingredients to be a bit more diet friendly (you'd think they would have too, but it was a penny pinching recipe. ) enjoy!
adapted from Wringing out My Sponge blog. She suggested adding honey instead of the stevia and applesauce - I did that. I also substituted 1 cup of oat flour instead of 2 cups almond flour/meal. You could do the 2 cups of the almond, but I found this worked great!
This is from Vita-mix's recipe book. An easy way to enjoy a favorite! Fill with cottage cheese and strawberries and top with whipped topping....YUM
actually - this was a toss whatever I could think of in the pot for soup. Turned out pretty good. Enjoy!
great way to have fish!
This is from Dana Thornocks Lean and Free 2000 cookbook. It's her blender pancakes with added protein...low fat and sugar free
a protein twist to our favorite breakfast - no sugar added!
wanted some cookies with a little bit of a kick to them...
This is a recipe lightened up that my brother brought back from England while in the Air Force. He loves it, my sister-in-law hates it simply because of the idea of boiling the meat. Great at as a filler for burritos and topping for tamales, good for lots of variations as well. Mixed canned veggies are the regular recipe. It ends up kind of like a stew.
the homemade way to have a great protein bar. You can do whatever flavor protein you like, I did a mixture of vanilla and chocolate, we've done just chocolate, but whatever you use, enjoy!
this is a variation on a family favorite
these are our favorite!
I wanted something different, these turned out great!
a yummy alternative to restaurant
a good fall/winter soup with leftovers from Thanskgiving. If you don't have leftover roasted veggies, just add them raw to the broth and cook with the barley.
this is adapted from the recipe off Food52.com for Meta Givens. Different approach to pumpkin pie.
this is a try at the pecan part - but then discovered I didn't have any. Did walnuts instead, and no crust.
this was a recipe off their site that I adapted to lower fat and more protein and 4 x the batch
wanted to see how many grains I could cook into a cereal. turned out great! Next time I might add corn and flax...
made with white rice instead of brown
this is adapted from Pioneerwoman's pork roast http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2011/11
my daughter wanted to make this. turned out good.
enjoyed the recipe posted by budget mom, but left out the butter and used truvia instead of sugar. I think it would do even better with 2 servings of protein...
I tried to find a recipe in all the tons on here that had everything I wanted to put in. There were lots that had parts, but not all I wanted, so we had to build our own. Turned out great, so enjoy! We served them with chopped lettuce and FF sour cream.
yummy way with crackers
would have been good with nuts too
a quick an simple dinner
a way to use up veggies and have fish too - served with brown rice
The bacon just adds a flavor without lots of fat.
this is version two of the one posted by JESSICAB1221.
a breakfast idea instead of cream of wheat. Served with honey or berries...yum
A recipe from Vita Mix for tomato soup
one of our favorites
a great way to have a 'baked' chicken feel.
sort of lower fat, but not really. a recipe my son brought home from school, yum!
a family favorite made over - yum!
using a generic mix and white beans with egg substitute - quick and easy sugar cookie!
now a family favorite .. could make with chocolate pudding as well for a more chocolate taste. Can also try bananas with it.
I thought I'd see how they did lower fat...the frosting isn't lower fat though - you could put whipped topping in instead and it would be great. Based on a recipe found in Smells like home, and Smittens Kitchen
This is a take off GMBLOVE's recipe. I used cooked chicken and fresh ingredients - just didn't do it in the slow cooker.
one of our favorites
this is adapted from KARICHELLES apple cinnamon breakfast. YUM
from cooking light - without the gourmet cheese, the color makes you think it's more cheesy, but the butternut is great
made with honey instead of sugar - surprisingly good! Got this from The Other Side of Fifty blog.
low fat and fillling!
a cheat, but still yummy
Low fat and high protein.
got this from a site called a former chef...don't have any wine, which is what his called for. Used red wine vinegar and vegetable broth. Turned out excellent!
a fast way to have the great flavor
a great way to avoid processed sugar syrup - from Dana's Lean and Free 2000
my favorite way to eat zucchini!
got this off the internet - lightened it up and added protein.
a yummy way to lower the fat of your burgers and add flavor.
yummy way to combine the two. Roasting the squash gives it a carmelized flavor.
a quick way to have stroganoff if you don't have leftovers
these are low fat and amazing!! Great way to use up that Zucchini out of the garden, if you have enough to spare.
another variation on our family staple
a change up on the mushroom casserole
a change from my usual mushroom casserole
wanted to see if I could make them without flour for my gluten free friends. These turned out great - and they're low fat!
these are low fat and low sugar - great when you are craving chocolate. Got this from Blisstree.com.
a family favorite made homemade fries
This is a family favorite, lightened up with Greek yogurt! adapted from a recipe in the Joy of Cooking.
these taste great, and cook so fast! It was crazy how the baking soda made it foam. Would be fun for kids to make and see the reaction to the starter. Got this recipe from Authentic Homemade.com site, where they also had a couple more sourdough recipes. If you aren't cooking them right away, don't add the baking soda till just before cooking.
This is a tradition for my mother-in-law's bday. I keep having to find a new recipe. This one was easy and turned out great. NOT low fat or healthy in anyway, but it did have whole wheat and raw sugar...got this recipe from the Pioneerwomancooks tasty kitchen site.
a version of the spice recipe with chocolate chips
great way to have french toast.
a great recipe and simple. I got it from Sourdough Home.com
I was craving something chocolate and needed some protein too.
Originally found this by DREAMYJ - but made a few changes.
the alternative to the family favorite. Love it!
a little mixed to go with savory rice
when you don't have time to cook the regular brown rice...this works
As found in Grains Rice and Beans by Kevin Graham. I love beets, so this was a no brainer for me. Really simple...really good!
a take off of NEETCHI's recipe. Added some veggies, used my own homemade apricot jam and thickened the sauce. YUM
Using the no sugar added pectin - just a little splenda blend. yum!
adapted from quetzalgirl's pineapple ones. I forgot to put the pineapple in...
a twist on the roasted chick peas - a sweeter side
wanted to try something new - like the crunchy taste! I found the idea off a site called Selfish Vegan.
just a little twist on the regular stuff
a non fried version - needs some work, but still good
This was adapted from a recipe in a book called Wonderful Wheat. I lightened it up a bit, and it's wonderful. ;)
another version of lower fat brownies from a mix
a yummy turkey dish
I know there are lots out there, but this is my version. Now a family favorite
I wanted some cookies, but I didn't want to bake. I also didn't want lots of fat. Found several recipes on the internet, and kind of combined them. One was Lynns Recipe adventures, that had no peanut butter.
had some swiss chard to use up, so tossed this together. Yum!
Yummy quick dinner in one pot. Found this on Skinnytaste.com site, took out a little of the fat and added a bit more protein.
my version of the casserole made in a dutch oven
the all time summer favorite with my family, lightened up.
a family favorite lightened up
in the summer we cook a lot of dutch oven - it's outside! This was an experiment on lasagna to see how it would be with chicken and cooked in the dutch oven.
I got this recipe from a book called American Wholefoods Cuisine and adapted it to lower fat ingredients.
A great way to have a light dinner with many different kinds of fillings. The honey would be if you wanted desert crepes. Leave out for savory or dinner crepes. This recipe is nice because you only have to let it sit for 15 minutes instead of like 30 to 60 before.
a family favorite with no added sugars
a great way to cook in the summer but I don't like coconut frosting, so we didn't put any on. I'm sure you could add it after things cooled off. Lift out the cake and overturn on a plate to frost.
excellent way to cook in the summer!
our favorite summer dinner!
This is from a recipe I found on the internet. They claimed it was the most amazing key lime pie ice cream ever...and while it's good, I don't know that it's that amazing. Of course, I lightened it up quite a bit. The original recipe also only made enough to fill a 1 1/2 qt freezer, and mine was 4 qt, so I doubled it and then some. It might have been more milk than is listed because I had to fill to the 'fill here' mark on the freezer. I only had one can of the fat free sweetened condensed, or I would have done both cans that way. Also, I usually use skim milk and figured it needed the 1%, since the recipe called for whole. You could try the skim and see if you like it.
this is great on wraps or with artichokes...anything you would use Mayo as a condiment for. YUM
My family loves this version of the standard. Amazing how you can add pretty much anything you want. normally would add avocado...do that if you have it!
I adapted this from A Year Of Slow Cooking. This is triple the recipe, but that's because i filled the crock pot and she used ramekins inside...I can't quite wrap my brain around that, but anyway this was my attempt. Enjoy!
Had some chicken thighs and was in the mood for sweet and sour. Not quite the same look as a restaurant, but still yummy! Served over brown rice/bean mix.
a great way to cut back on sugar.
I wanted french toast and needed the protein...turned out excellent!
yummy on waffles
adapted from the single serving chocolate brownie by slowset - from no pudge fudge brownie....
adapted from a recipe on Sunshine and Bones.
I decided to try cottage cheese...what a difference! yum
We were going to bbq, but this sounded better. Served over brown rice, it was excellent.
decided to try an experiment with biscuits.
low fat way to make cake quick!
wanted cookies and used black beans instead of white ones. Turned out good! Thinking a titch sweet though - could probably use less honey and brown sugar.
Wanted to make the Olive Garden Zuppa, but didn't have regular potatoes. Yum!
This makes a great cheese sauce - add more cheese if you aren't worried about fat!
my take on a yummy recipe from Daily Unadventures inCooking
not pretty, but good!
I wanted to try some additions to the regular wheat berries - yum!
we had these at a restaurant and just had to try them baked. Sooo good!
these turned out better than anticipated...can't taste the beans!!
this is adapted from Kraft's easy baked taco pie.
lower sugar version - no refined sugars. This is adapted from moveitorgainit's recipe.
I decided to dry what I could this year, no added sugar or oil!
Our family favorite on Sundays
Yum! A meal in your hand.
This was adapted from a recipe by wen130. I didn't do as much chicken and didn't have some other things, so I did my own thing. Turned out yummy!
This is my take on a recipe from Mommy's Kitchen for Old Fashioned Banana Cream Pie. I can't imagine what the full version would be calorie wise!! ugh. Her's called for mering on top, I like whip topping, so that's what I used.
This is a real treat, enjoy!
we had leftover lamb from Easter, and the kids wanted stroganoff. Wa-la!
This is adapted from Pioneer Woman's blackberry cheesecake. I tried to cut back on the butter, and didn't have enough low fat cream cheese. I think it would probably work great with two low fat and one fat free - it would have cut down the fat quite a bit. Also, the topping probably needed more cornstarch...it definitely could use more sweetner. I added 4 pkgs of sun crystals, I think it needs 6. Enjoy!
this is a recipe from myrecipes.com. It was only for 8 rolls, I 4x it, and changed some of the ingredients to make it lower fat. Turned out yummy! I also didn't roll them like cinnamon rolls, I rolled them like cressents. Easy!
this is a family treat, as I only make them once a year. My son would just eat these if we let him...all the time.
had this for lunch today, yum!
another recipe...but nothing quite matched what I did, so - here we are. Interesting stuff - really grows on you!
a different take on the sweet potatoes...definitely need to peel them first...lol
made this with leftover stuff from making lasagna and cleaning out my fridge
this was an experiment that failed...sort of.
wanted some cafe rio, but at home
this is a different recipe. .but it turned out good. Not too sweet, but still tasty.
great with my savory brown rice and mushrooms. This was adapted from someone else recipe here, but I can't remember whose it was.
our family loves this with bread or celery
wanted some banana bread!! This is from the Fresh Loaf site, adapted from the 10 minute banana bread. Wow!
a family favorite
a quick and simple way to have pizza
Found this recipe online - a site called radiant. It looked really easy, so I've adapted it to me. It's really yummy.
This is a mix of a recipe on here and my own addition. We love corn bread, but it has lots of sugar and fat. The recipe has very low fat. Enjoy!
yummy meat alternative
Adapted from SWEETDRMS2NT recipe - added a banana and more chips. Made more cookies... YUM
Yummy low fat version of the family favorite.
yet another strawberry spinach salad - but it turned out great. I love the combination of spinach with fruit and nuts. Might try with feta or other nuts as well.
from a magazine recipe we've had forever - also called the Ultimate carrot cake...just divine!! Can be made lower fat, but this is how we made it for bday.
A lighter version than my moms - and homemade. She used french bread when I was a kid, and the filling was more like sloppy joes. This is a more traditional kind, though it doesn't have pepperoni or lunch meat in it.
This is really good with chopped apples and celery too...
don't forget the eggs like I did...lol
wanted something sweet...love it warm!
really yummy and great for protein. I usually add mushrooms and spices too.
nice in a crock pot
Nathan's Lemon cake was on cooking light - a recipe they lightened but didn't do as much as I did. Turned out kind of flat - but still yummy.
this is a version of the one that sparkheba has called romano olive oil crackers. I added mrs dash instead of chili flakes and gluten to try and add protein. I think I need to add more, but they turned out okay.
family favorite lightened up
this is adapted from several recipes on site. turned out pretty good!
we meant to have rice, but it got scorched, so we improvised...almost looks like a Chinese dish
we use biscuits for so many things, there had to be a low fat alternative! The yogurt works really well!
loved the one posted by chef Meg, so I adapted it for me. Needed to cook longer, but turned out yummy!
when you don't have the time to make it from scractch...
there are so many choices out there...but we like this one. Zucchini is the surprise ingredient...
our foray into the granola...I'm sure there will be changes in the future, this is my first attempt.
tried something new with our favorite country style ribs
maple flavored to go on the maple jubilee jumbles
adapted from a recipe my sister has in a cookbook called Cooky Primer. I just absolutely LOVE these cookies and wanted to see how they'd do lightened up. They turned out great! Use your favorite frosting with maple in it to top them. I used the spiff y whip stuff again, and it's light. You could do a drizzled frosting and not add too many calories. I didn't add the frosting here so you could figure your own.
I was in the mood to experiment and wanted something sweet but not heavy...these are NOT very sweet, but yummy.
a twist on the chicken tamale casserole
the next best thing to making tamales! Got from myrecipes.com was in cooking light November 2008
was in the mood for something more than regular mac n cheese
a yummy winter soup
this is an attempt to low fat something totally bad for you...grin
I got this from the Pioneer Woman's site. She thinks it's to die for, I think it's okay. You might see what you think
I think the Sara Lee people just cut the bread thinner...but it works.
These are so yummy! Bite size good.
discovered a yummy way to make a dressing to replace mayo. Yum!
I wanted sugar cookies and decided to try this. Turned out great!
I had this soup mix and decided to try it my style. turned out great!
I had this soup mix and decided to try it my style. turned out great!
yummy! Especially when served with strawberries and whipped topping
This is my favorite soup. I order it every time we go there. I don't like the salad because they put too much dressing on them, but anyway -- I've used the links though this time I used the tube that you fry up - you can do regular Italian sausage too, I was trying to cut the fat.
a real creamy way to eat this great stuff!
Thought I'd try it with something else
This is my adaption from one found here at sparkpeople by SNAVELA1. I didn't use the same amount of olive oil, and I used fat free canned milk.
well...ended up just cutting them into small squares - it was too hard to push down with the heart cookie cutter. Maybe you'll have better luck! I got this from MyRecipes.com. They're called Crispy Chocolate Hearts.
my family loves the veggie lasagna sauce, so this was a version and they loved it.
this was a recipe that looked good...we tried it.
the beans give it the texture without any difference! My kids had no idea it wasn't cream cheese. I would totally leave out the cream cheese next time. It didn't need it!
From the Fork You! Blog. Yum! and sooo easy!
These are almost as good as the store bought...with lots less salt and no fat!
fast and simple
thought I'd try it with broth...turned out YUMMY
an old family favorite
the surprise is that they're made with black beans instead of oil or butter!
a yummy way to have tuna and rice
best blend I've come up with!
we love fondue, but it's hard to get the cheese sauce right
people say this is taco soup, but it's more like chili to me.
My hubbies invention
we eat this with low sodium chips or by itself
I got this a LONG time ago from a friend who had worked for the cookie company.
These are a great treat...with chocolate topping. Not low fat...
yummy roast with potatoes
my daughter calls these smothered pork chops...
This is a big family favorite! Use fat free cheese to really bring the fat down. I was tempted to use corn tortillas, but they're not quite the same.
Like a stroganoff, but lighter and more liquid
A delicious option for guests!
a mix of noodles and eggplant to lower the carbs and raise the protein
this was a twist on the spinach artichoke dip we love. Turned out excellent!
this is our favorite stuff
we were craving eggnog shakes, and used our homemade eggnog - fantastic!
a delicious low fat alternative!
yum! Love low fat turkey sausage!
a yummy way to use leftover ham
a family tradition for thanksgiving - lightened up.
This is my favorite way to eat carrots. We've done all sorts of combinations, with mushrooms, yams, etc. Good stuff!
This is adapted from JESSICAB1221's self crust pumpkin pie. I wanted to do it without sugar, but still added the brown sugar and less water, mixing the flours. She did excellent, and this turned out great too. YUM
We wanted some cheese ball to help offset the candy we were making...
hashbrowns with eggs and cheese
this turned out REAL yummy! It would even be good warm.
turned out strange...I accidentally put the baking soda in, and I think it made them strange. They came out kind of like biscuits...really puffy!
made on cookie sheets...these serve a crowd!
I never would have put these ingredients together, but it's really good! I make the rice ahead of time in broth, which adds to the protein factor. You could make it with vegetable broth or water to make it vegetarian. I got this recipe from 101cookbooks.com - it's adapted from hers. (basically 3 times her recipe)
a yummy crust alternative - if you can find the right calories - this is a guess at the calories because the ones I used didn't have the nutrition information. Trader Joes is pretty standard...
This is our favorite -- we gave up on the noodles cause they always seemed to get soggy. Love it with rice. We use wild rice sometimes, that's great too. You can pretty much add whatever you want, it's a great left-over soup.
before sonic made them popular, we made our own!
this turned out really good! used NO oil. I've also found you need to be picky which kind of garbanzo beans you use. Look at the labels carefully.
This is a family favorite and easy to make! One of those toss together what's left in the fridge dinners. You can also do the crispy noodles ontop, but they add fat. We serve this over Savory Rice so it adds more protein. Very filling!
turned out really yummy!
These are my favorite holiday cookie. I got the recipe from 101cookbooks, and she had altered them a little. I altered them a little more, adding low fat cream cheese instead of all the butter, making them a lower fat alternative. They still aren't a diet cookie by any means, but they are simply the best!
Yum!! I found this recipe many years ago, and found some doughnut pans at a store. We've made these many times since I don't like anything but cake doughnuts. You can frost them, but that's more calories and sugar. These are good dipped in sugar free hot cocoa, or skim milk!
Yummy way to mix protein and carbs
yummy made easy with krogers teriyaki sauce!
great for leftover turkey
these are basic drop biscuits
really easy when you don't have all day
yummy on a cold winter night!
a better alternative to McDonalds...
Great on a fall day!
A twist on the regular potato soup.
combination of baking chicken and rice, always good!
this is the best stuff...and low in fat too. My family loves it, we always have to make enough for lunches. can add veggies as desired, we've done mushrooms and onions - tonight was simple.
simple pasta meal
We love these sandwiches...hard to believe they're so high in calories - could use a lighter cut or less meat.
I wanted more of a fall flavor. Yum!
Adapted from a recipe for Pork shoulder stew - didn't want to cut it up.
really easy and quick!
this was adapted from a recipe found in Kraft Foods. It didn't turn out as pretty, but it was still yummy - though a bit rich. I had to use 1% milk instead of skim and low fat cream cheese instead of fat free. The chocolate was a bit much, so it would probably be good without it.
We like some meat in our sauce! Ground turkey is great stuff. My kids thought it was chicken...
Received some sea trout and wanted chowder...
Regular mac n cheese with yogurt instead of butter...
yummy way to cook chicken and rice with little mess
This is low fat and low sodium - great on a cold night with homemade tortilla chips, low fat cheese and fat free sour cream.
This is low fat and full of protein!
a try at an alternative to the yummy fall treat. These are too big to eat by yourself, so that's why the servings are 24...12 apples
yet another combination!
this is good for a quick fix.
this makes a great substitute for regular syrup and tastier too
a lighter twist to the traditional - my kids even liked it
not for the light hearted, though this is a lightened version of the recipe. Yummy with whipped topping or ice cream.
Great over rice!
Yummy alternative with ripe fruit
Adapted from another recipe on the sight...no butter! Yummy.
needed to use up some cabbage and came up with this...after making it the first time, I would use a spicier meat, like a sausage. We used Worcestershire sauce because it was too bland.
Add a little more sweetener and it will be perfect. I couldn't believe how good it turned out! Enjoy!
home made stroganoff with sour cream and mushrooms. For my family to use, we're all tracking our food! ;)
wanted something warm this morning, and this hit the spot!
got some Japanese eggplant that I wanted to use up. Made it like Ratatouie, (sp?) but it was good.
I saw a recipe that had shrimp in the mac n cheese and wanted to try it. The greek yogurt makes it sooo creamy!
a quick way to have pasta
A Strange twist to the normal, but good!
Our Family Favorite
these turned out excellent!
This is a family favorite for summer! You can cut the fat by cutting half the bacon, but my hubby likes his pork!
small but yummy!
These are a family favorite at Christmas, and I knew I would need to lighten them up if I wanted to eat them without guilt. The cottage cheese was an experiment, and they turned out really good! I used less cheese than I usually do, and could probably do with less chicken soup, but it turned out great. Definitely not something you'd eat a lot of though!
from the Joy of Cooking
This is our favorite soup for cold nights. It's easy to throw together and add to however you like. Can serve with cheese and bread. Great stuff!
well..it was a try. I'll have to try again with oil perhaps. And I'll make the frosting instead of david... ;)
decided to find a way to eat eggplant - something my family hasn't really tried before.
found a recipe at AllRecipes.com I thought I'd try. I used oatmeal instead of bread crumbs and egg substitute instead of eggs. It said it made 4, but I filled 6 of the old tupperware meat patty trays with it, and they were still too thick. Personally, I think thin is better. You could possibly make at least 10 patties. Once frozen, they held up rather well thin. They probably need some more spice though. If anyone has a suggestion, I'd like to try it. I think they have potential, but they are still lacking something.
a family favorite, lightened up.
my son wanted to order pizza hut pasta...I mean really!
an experiment with the instant potatoes
yummy - fastest way to have a favorite
These turned out really good! Dunk them in a mug of hot chocolate for a really yummy treat.
yummy shrimp chowder type soup -
this is supposed to be the real thing that they make over there...
this was a revision of a recipe I saw online. Turned out really good...
This is a recipe we found for making baguettes, and it's sooo easy. I make the dough in my bread maker, but the whole idea is that you don't have to knead it.
This turned out a little different, but taste good on sandwiches!
I found some turnips at the store and decided to try them. This was my first experiment...turned out good!!
wonderful! A little fat intensive, but pair it up with something light and it's wonderful. I'm not sure of the calories, I tried to find the right count.
My personal trainer sent me these...I think it depends on how much you like the protein powder. My hubby and I loved these with mashed potatoes...grin. I also didn't follow exactly the recipe. I used a sweetener instead of honey, but apparently didn't use enough and had to add lots more water than it called for. Interesting. Will need some work...
This is a family tradition, it's our Yule Log. It's not low fat, but it's yummy!
My daughter-in-law suggested the artichokes...it was good.
Yummy! Usually just do Navy Bean soup, decided to switch it up today, and it turned out excellent. Makes enough for a crowd.
so that I could feed everyone on two cans of soup...kind of just dumped what we had in with it.
I wanted to be able to eat the chocolate cake with my family, so I tweaked it my way. I added the protein powder to the frosting...I was going to add it to the cake mix, but forgot before I dumped it into the pan. You might want to try it...I'm sure you could do the frosting out of the protein mix and cool whip lite or free...it would be yummy.
my boss makes this every holiday season, and it's wonderful, if a little heavy on the dressing. I put this in to figure out how many calories I was eating...If you have a better version, I'd love to know. I'm sure there are spices, but I can't tell what they are. Enjoy!
This is great, and no meat -- though there was some in the sauce. I buy whatever's on sale, so, the sauce varies with the pan. This makes two big 9x13 pans. We did one pan with the mushrooms and one without. Enjoy!
These are the best! They turned out so good...next time we are going to try substituting unsweetened applesauce instead of all the sugar.
Usually we add onions, but we were out. We put dried onions, garlic and the sauces into the cooked hamburger. Turned out great!
This is great with any pork dish or gravy. Wild rice is just amazing!
This turned out sooo moist! It's wonderful. All the recipes I found said to do the slow cooker, but I didn't have time for that and it was partially frozen. Cooked it in the oven, and it turned out perfect.
instant potatoes with veggies, cheese and bacon -- what could be better!? We loved it...
We had tons of this, gonna make something with the leftovers. Turned out really good, not soupy, but still good.
This is our family favorite with a twist...butternut squash. If you like thicker soup, like creamy, add some instant potatoes after it's mostly finished cooking. Excellent with cheese on top too.
found one that was pretty much what I had at a restaurant. Need the real calorie count! Enjoy...
Decided to try a tomato Alfredo sauce so my whole family would like it. Sauce tastes great...have to see how it is after cooking!
This turns out really yummy with heated unsweetened applesauce on top. Good stuff!
made this up this morning to see how it went over with the family. They actually ate it!
