Recipes I've Shared:

pineapple mango smoothie

Can use any combo fruits or juices. Frozen fruits are better for the consistency of the smoothie

High Fiber Bean Burritos

These can be made in batches and frozen. I use Santa Fe Tortilla Company whole grain tortillas from Sams which have 100 calories ea.

Baked Oatmeal

delicious with or without the fruit

Cranberry Pork Roast

Slow Cooker Recipe

TOH Cole Slaw

Good but needs some more sugar or artificial sweetener

Chicken Salad

Great to spread on Sandwiches

oreo pie

I only had a full sugar pudding and a sugar free so this is the result of that combo when made into a pie with 2 boxes of pudding mix in it (and no cool whip).

TOH Zucchini Bread

I think you could reduce the sugar on this recipe to 1 C and still get good results.

Beef Fajitas

Each fajita has 144 calories with no cheese or 162 calories with 1/2 cheese. The recipe says 8 Azteca tortillas but there are 2 tortillas in a serving on these so the nutritional information is calculated with 16.

mom's oldfashioned granola

great for sprinkling on yogurt (servings are small) or if you want as a cereal, 1/2 C equals 264 calories

Blueberry Scones

made with fat-free yogurt instead of cream. Who could tell the difference?

TOH Chicken and Dumplings

recipe book p. 120; serve in bowls, each person gets 1 chicken breast and 1/8 of other stuff. These are large servings so put in 3/4 of a serving if you eat less.

TOH Chicken Pepper Fajitas

2 oz. of Fajita mix without tortillas is 85 calories.

Crock Pot Corn Chowder

Flavorful and Filling

Tortilla Soup

uses the Bear Creek dried Tortilla soup recipe.

Sweet and Sour Chicken

This has 268 calories for 8 almost 2 C servings with 4 oz chicken each or 214 for 10 almost 1 1/2 C servings

Mom's Egg Casserole

This recipe is great and in it's original form is delicious.

corn bread

applesauce lightens and sweetens

Lydia's Chicken Casserole

serving is 1/8 cassserole. Maybe is about 1-1/4 C

TOH Applesauce Oat Muffins

Can leave out cranberries or put in other fruit. Incredible muffin!

TOH Beef Minestrone Soup

I think this makes about 8 1 1/2 C servings. Each one is 184 calories. You can add salt to taste. Calories would be less if 93% lean ground beef was used.

Jan's Broiled Salmon

This makes 4 6 oz servings so the calories are a bit higher.

Beef Stew Soup

2 C equal 1 serving I make this from leftover pot roast ingredients

Kims Chicken Tortilla Soup

2 C = 250 calories with 1/4 C of cheese and 1 corn tortilla made into strips = then it serves 6 or serves 8 1 1/2 C servings for 200 calories

My Chili

This fills a 7 quart crockpot full. You can easily halve it for a smaller group. Servings are about a cup and a half if tomato juice is added. See tip.

Amazing Spaghetti Pie

Pie with a twist, a creamy white layer, Makes 6 generous servings per pie. My family adores this recipe. If you don't want 2 pies, cut everything in half, or freeze the second.

Colorful Grilled Vegies

I made the baked version of these great vegies with steak on Christmas day. They are wonderful and versatile. Can be grilled or baked and use any combo of vegies desired. If made without potatos and with 6 C total of carrots, cauliflower and broccoli florets and red pepper, the calorie count is only 90 per serving.
