Recipes I've Shared:

Caramel Cheesecake with Praline Sauce

This is by J. Curry, May 1999. Cannot find nutritional info for it on the web so am entering it. It is light, very tastey. It is not a dessert you'd bring to a dessert table as the stronger flavors would overwhelm this, but it is wonderful when it is the highlight itself.

Note: nutritional info is done with Splenda brown sugar blend to the best approximation I could manage. Purists, ignore the substitute without comment, and just know some of us need it.

Everything But the Kitchen Sink Pot Roast Stew

Dear Hubby whipped this one up in a flash, and used up a lot of pantry items that were in need of using up. Unorthodox, yes, but tasted very good.

No Crust Vegetable "Pot Pie"

This is a recipe I've made for 20 years and is filling and satisfying. There may be lots of Veggie Pot Pie variants out there, but I wanted to see what the calculator would come up with. This is crustless. You serve it with Drop Biscuits instead of a crust.

The best fit: Whole Wheat Drop Biscuits

Turkey Quinoa Veggie Meatloaf

Adapted from 'Braised Savoy Cabbage Rolls Recipe' in Relish magazine. The rolls were wonderful: dear hubby said I could make them every day... but they were too time-consuming and fussy. We had extra fillings so added more and made a meatloaf that friends rave about to this day. The madeira-braised onions really makes this a standout for flavor, and a company-quality recipe.

Salsa Verde Soup - serves 6

Very easy soup shared by S.I.L. I don't know where she got it but couldn't find the exact same recipe on line so am entering here. It has become a winter-staple for us. It comes together very quickly. The garnishes really 'make' this soup.

This can serve 6-8 people, but for the sake of having firm values for the recipe calculator, making it 6 servings.

This soup has heat to it. Note that the better the salsa brand and broth, the better ther final results.

The Salsa Verde used in the recipe calculator is Herdoz, 16 oz. Of course, you can control the sodium by making your own salsa verde.
