Gluten Free Banana Nut Muffins

I re-worked a recipe to make it gluten free. Tapioca starch could be substituted for potato starch.

Quiche Cups - Cheddar, Spinach

Makes 6 muffin shaped no-crust mini quiches. These are great to make ahead and have in the refrigerator as part of a quick, hot, healthy breakfast or lunchbox item for the kids.

* Baking Powder, 2 tsp (remove)

* Salt, .25 tsp (remove)
* Turbinado Sugar (for baking), .75 cup (remove)

Pumpkin Coconut Muffins

These muffins are a great source of fiber. This recipe makes about 18 muffins.

Is it cheesecake?

This is a great mid-morning snack that almost tastes like dessert! (You could also use the strawberry Chobani yogurt.)


Incredible! (1 rating)
Grandma's (but healthier) stuffed cabbage rolls

This is a healthier version of the gawumpki that my polish grandmother made when I was a little girl. I used the crockpot instead of the oven and I substituted ground turkey for ground pork, olive oil for butter, brown rice for white. The result is a healthier family favorite - even my kids like it!

Chicken Chop Suey

Chop Suey like mom used to make - (only just a little healthier!) The nutritional info. is calculated for 1 cup servings, but I eat 1/2 cup of this over 1/2 cup of brown rice for a great light meal.
