Jen's Ruby's Chicken

This is my rendition of a local favorite dish. My mom makes a similar dish. It's similar to a marsala chicken, made with white wine instead of marsala wine.

Perfected Ham and Split Pea Soup

This is my adaption of the Betty Crocker Split Pea and Ham soup. This has been a favorite of ours for years. Who knew it was so healthy!

Mexican Chicken Bean Soup

This was an easy throw together meal - minimal prep time, maximum flavor!

Easy Crepes

Quick batter, easy to cook, delicious with sweet or savory fillings. We use low fat cottage cheese and fruit jelly for a quick meal that everyone will enjoy.

ANOTHER Beef Stroganoff Recipe

Made with "real" beef (not ground beef) and braised for a long time to fully tenderize the meat. Absolutely delicious! Just like momma used to make (but healthier!) lol

Pork Chops with wild leeks and mushrooms

In West Virginia where I live, Ramps (also known as wild leeks) are in season. I am not originally from here, and felt I must try them. Ramps are similar to a green onion, with more of a garlicy taste to them. They are quite delicious. This recipe was a combination of several that I found. If you don't have any ramps or wild leeks, leek or even onion could substitute. I think next time I will cut out the butter and cook the bacon first - then brown the chops in the bacon fat.

Country Baked Steak

This is the most delicious tender throw it in the oven and forget about it dinners. One of my absolute favorites! (Not one of the most healthy, but worth every calorie!)

Stuffed Chicken

Absolutely delicious filling! Same as recipe posted by ALISON_T; but with the ingredients slightly adjusted to give the calorie count I wanted. Next time I will pound the chicken and marinate it for a few hours in the olive oil/lemon juice/ herb mixture to incorporate even more flavor.

Easy (Healthy) Jambalaya

This is an easy way to "doctor up" a box meal and make it taste just like homemade. I always add just a little hot sauce to my bowl. It is a one dish meal but I sometimes serve it with a salad.

Hearty Chicken Tortellini Soup

This is my own version of a healthy but filling tortellini soup. It leans more towards the traditional flavor of chicken noodle soup, but the spinach and totellini add a new layer of flavor.

The Best Chicken Divan Ever!

This is NOT a healthy version of this recipe. Next time, I will experiment with this family recipe to make it healthier without sacrificing flavor.

Jen's Bruchetta Chicken

This was adapted from several recipes I found here - with a few minor changes. This was SO easy to make and DELICIOUS. My version is a little spicy. It's surprisingly filling! I like to use the Rotel cilantro and lime variety when I can find it.

Tuna Noodle Casserole

Great comfort food, quick and easy traditional meal.

Pepper Steak

This recipe came from the Light & Fluffy noodle package. It's delicious and tender when prepared according to the directions. I always thought it was healthy, but now I KNOW it is. I often substitute broth for the water and bouillon. Also, don't be intimidated by the long cooking time; an hour of it is non-active. If your meat is cut larger, allow a bit longer for it to get tender. Also, this tastes great if you omit the can of tomatoes too!
