Very Good (1 rating)
Redeye Mole Chili

The original Rachel Ray recipe included simmering 2 ancho chiles (stemmed and seeded) in the broth for about 10 minutes - then putting in food processor. My family isn't much for heat - so I left this out and added crushed red pepper to mine.

NOTE: Coffee may make this a little bitter (esp with unsweetened cocoa). Next time I will use 1 Tablespoon instead of two.

Chicken with Onions, Lentils and Couscous

Adapted from a Rachel Ray recipe. Hers was made with chicken legs - roasted with the skin on. This one uses skinless/boneless chicken breast so you can cook it all on your cooktop instead of the oven - and I use less olive oil.
I used Isreali Couscous (I don't know if there is a difference) - it was the first time my family tried Couscous and they all loved it!


Incredible! (2 ratings)
Scoopable Asian Chicken Salad (Hungry Girl)

This was on the back of the Mann's Broccoli Cole Slaw package. It called for a low-fat sesame ginger dressing...I used the Orange cranberry vinagrette I had in the pantry. The dressing is NOT included in the Nutritional Infomation as I may change the dressing next time... I thought about adding raisins or craisins, but decided I'd leave that up to my family...

According to nutritional info, this is 3 WW Points (without the dressing - be sure to calculate for that).

Pasta Primavera with Parmesan Cheese

Very simple! Very Quick.
Reduce fat by leaving out olive oil - but I think it needs it.

Mediterranean Pasta and Tuna Salad

This recipe came from the Heartland Penne Pasta box. I used 1/2 the pasta it called for and kept the other ingredients at the same quantity. Hubby and Little one loved it.

Chicken Chili - uses left over chicken

Use Cooked chicken and left over potatoes from another dinner so that this is a quick and FILLING dish.

Microwave Red Velvet Cake

Microwave in Tupperware cooker for 15 minutes or until edges pull away from cooker.

V8 Peach Mango Banana Pancakes

I don't use any sugar in this recipe. But you could add some sweetner to the dry ingredients before blending.

Steph's Quick Tuna Cassarole

Quick dinner. Add any veggies you like.

WW Fudgy Cocoa Brownies - Revised

This is from the WW Desserts cookbook. Sounds like a hassle to make - but it isn't. AND they are worth the effort.
--- This has been updated because when I typed in the ingredients previously, I put them in the nutritional info but not the typed list. Sorry for anyone who tried this previously... I promise they are awesome!

WW Toffee-Apple Blondies

These are really good - they come from the WW Dessert cookbook....

Italian Wedding Soup

Very Easy - Very Good.

Lentil Soup

This recipe was adapted from Food Network.com. It is super easy. The ingredients below call for low-salt chicken broth - the nutritional info uses regular chicken broth. You choose.
You can serve it over pasta if you like. We eat it as is.

Whole Wheat Orange Pancakes

This is adapted from SP recipe for Whole Wheat Pancakes. We use OJ instead of milk and it gives them a different flavor and texture.

If you do not want to use the egg, you can exchange it for 1 tsp of oil.

Ground Chicken Stroganoff

Green Beans add color - you may choose your own veggie. I LIKE this over PASTA. If you prefer rice or noodles, then you can do that too. Just change the nutritional info to match.
