This is so simple... and great for calorie control... and so nutritious and delicious... I layered the Angelfood cake on the bottom of the pan...topped with Strawberries, etc.. and it makes a pretty dessert that my family really enjoys...

Baker's Corner Extra Rich Crunch Chocolate Cake

This is my creative version of the Deluxe Moist Devil's Food Cake using cut up Nestle Crunch Jingles (bell shaped) folded into the cake batter before baking. Note: this is a good way to use-up candy left over from Christmas or another holiday.

Grandma Mary's Strawberry Jello dessert (Jello Mold - 16 srvgs total)

This recipe was passed down from our "Grandma Mary" who has since passed-away. But it will forever to us be known as "Grandma Mary's Jello". It's a great light & tasty dessert that's easy to make.

This fruit & yogurt smoothie has a special addition of creamy peanut butter for extra protein and a unique nutty flavor. My daughter really liked it - and it's healthy. Great for Breakfast or a snack.

Pasta Roni Butter & Garlic Angel Hair Pasta -2% milk & "NotButter-lite"

This is my "lite-prep" version to prepare this box side-dish. The milk is 2% fat and "I can't believe it's not butter-lite" are used to prepare this.

Reames Classic Chicken Noodle Soup

This was a really quick and easy recipe for making chicken soup and my family really enjoyed it.

Slow Cooker Ground Beef Meatballs for sandwiches

This meatball recipe can cook for hours in the slow cooker /crockpot after the meatballs are browned. It's easy and low cal since the Ground Beef used is 90/10 Sirloin. We just used jar sauce but the extra spices and meat cooking in it add to the flavor.

DonnaGrace's Turkey Easy Turkey Chili

This starts in an electric skillet - and finishes in a crockpot. It's a quick throw-together turkey (low calorie) chili with a lot of flavor.

Diet Orange Chicken

This is a really easy 3 ingredient recipe for chicken - and low calorie too.

Grandma Lillie's Banana Bread

My grandma Lillie gave me this recipe for Banana Bread and it's so easy and one of the best tasting I've ever had. This can be made with butter or margarine -although I made it with Margarine-butter will work too -it just changes the calorie count/nutritional value a little... and Buttermilk can be substituted for the "soured milk" made with the 2% milk and 2 tsps of white vinegar. Nuts can be added too.

Bacon "potato" dip

This actually doesn't have "potato" in it... it just tastes like a baked potato... with the cheese and bacon on it... Heat it up and keep it in a crockpot for parties, etc...

DonnaGrace's Turkey Chili

This Ground Turkey Chili can be made in a Slow Cooker/Crockpot and the recipe can be reduced for less servings. I found making this amount works well for having leftovers for lunches, etc or can be frozen for future dinners.

Tastefully Simple Quick Corn Bread Mix-for 12 muffins (w/2% milk)

Tastefully Simple offers this Quick Corn Bread Mix and indicates that the serving size is 1/8 of the loaf - But if you make this into 12 muffins - it goes further to feed your family and reduces the calorie count for the "serving size". It's really easy and you just have to add milk and oil to the mix.

Famous Dave's Kahlua Fudge Brownies-from Donna

This is a recipe that closely resembles the Kahlua Brownie Dessert from Famous Daves. These brownies are really rich and best served with whipped cream and ice cream - but even though they have a lot of calories - if you share one-serving between 4 or more people it's a nice treat when you have extra calories for your day.

Leftover Turkey Casserole

This was a great recipe for using leftover turkey and it was really easy. It didn't take a lot of time to put together either. My family includes 2 teenage boys and we tend to like to have leftovers for lunches, etc., so this recipe can be cut down for a smaller family.
