Incredible! (5 ratings)
Devil's Food Cupcakes

Reduced Sugar cake mix made with pumpkin and a dollop of cream cheese in the center of each cupcake.

Hamburger Barley Soup

Just threw this together and Robert and I both loved it, so I quickly wrote down the ingredients.

Laurie's Texas Style Slow Cooker Chili

Healthy, hearty and delicious. The sodium content is quite a bit lower than indicated in the nutrition breakdown as the breakdown doesn't account for the fact that you drain and rinse the beans.

Butterscotch Rice Krispie Squares with Sunflower Seeds

My husband loves these. Great for me as I don't have to bake cookies.

Robert's Favourite Hamburger Soup

Robert is always asking for hamburger soup, so I finally developed a recipe that he likes. He loves it in fact.

Laurie's Beef Stew

Started in a pan and moved to the slow cooker, this stew is tender and tasty. You can substitute any beef, but I prefer a meat that doesn't need to be tenderized.

Peach Crisp

Lower fat and sugar than my mother's recipe, but delicious just the same.

Turkey Tomato Sauce

Less than 100 calories and 5 grams of fat per 1/2 cup serving.

Scrambled Eggs with Ham & Cheese

My own version with low-fat cheese and egg-beaters substituting for some of the eggs.

Spanish Rice with Beans 'n' Beef

My mom's spanish rice with the lean ground beef drained and rinsed to lower the fat and beans added to increase the fiber. Yum!!

Yellow Rice Pilaf

Made with cumin, coriander and tumeric this pilaf is very aromatic and delicious.

Low-Fat Scalloped Potatoes

Made with low-fat Bechamel sauce and 1.5 oz shredded sharp cheddar cheese.

Spaghetti Squash Parmesan

A simple recipe, but we love it!

Hummus

Uses fat-free plain yogurt to reduce the fat.

WW Low-Fat Chocolate Chip Muffins

Use unsweetened applesauce to reduce fat in these mini-muffins.

Meatloaf

My own basic recipe - a favourite of ours. Sometimes I add a layer of dijon mustard on the top and substitute dijon for the ketchup in the recipe as well.
