Cucumber Sandwich Boats

Fillings - Whatever you want. You can do tuna stuffed; salmon; any luncheon meat and cheese, chicken salad, ham salad. It's up to you. The 'crunch' satisfies enough so I don't need chips. Zero bread. Gluten free!

No Bake Energy Bites

This recipe is completely flexible. Add or change whatever you don't like. Use Gluten free chocolate, it's AMAZING!

Stuffed French Toast Rollups

These taste like a Bagelful to me. Try it and you might be as happy as I was with this recipe. When I first posted this recipe, I had only ever tried it with just cream cheese. This morning (2/10/14) I had the pleasure of trying it with the jelly. When you make these, be sure you do not put too much jelly. They become overly sweet. I like the flavor combo, but I do not the extreme sweetness. Either knock off the cinnamon sugar at the end, or get sugar free jelly... or try it without the jelly, and put fresh strawberries, maybe. I made myself 2, and I am having dificulty getting through the second one. I used country bread and the rolls did better holding together this time... They are just way too sweet. For me. Kids loved them.

3-2-1 Duncan Hines Magic Mug Cake

Microwaved and ready in just a few minutes. What's more magical than that??? Recipe from DuncanHines website.

Fudgy "Roll" Cookies

3 ingredient cookies. Sounds crazy, but its AMAZINGLY fudgy and good!! Tastes like a fudgy brownie to me. Try it and see!

Lasagne con spinaci, Mozzarella e panna acida

No, I am not Italian... It just sounds yummier in a different language! It means: Lasagna with Spinach, Mozzarella and Sour Cream

I came about this last night, when I realized I did not have any Ricotta or Cottage Cheese! - Ugh!!

Manicotti con Spinaci e Funghi

Spinach and Mushroom Manicotti. You can choose to leave out the mushrooms or spinach if you choose.

Made a version of this... using sour cream, because I ran out of Ricotta the other day... Husband said he could taste the sour cream, but that it was still good! I used Mozzarella to thicken the sauce up.. I also had to use lasagna noodles, since I was out of Manicotti. LOL!!! Still. All in all. This was fabulous! - and even more fabulous the next day!

BLT-PCG Sammich

Thats a bacon, lettuce, tomato, potato, cheese sammich.

Potato & Cheese Grilled (PCG) Sammich

I love baked potatoes. I love grilled cheese. So I thought, Why not combine both?! YUMMMM!!

Breaded Parmesan Chicken (Diabetic friendly)

Source: dLife

Chicken coated with stuffing mix, parmesan cheese and a unique blend of spices.

Perfect with couscous and steamed vegetables!

Tuna Pasta Salad

I bought and made boxed pasta salad... I tasted it and decided it "needed" something, so I threw in some extra stuff... Everyone liked it. I made my version the next day and everyone seemed to like it more... So here's my take!

Brownie S'mores

Brownies... S'mores.. .What could be better? Oh! How about having it in less than 2.5 minutes per person!

Shepherd's Pie (not-quite diabetic friendly)

Jamie absolutely loves Shepherd's Pie

Breakfast Buritto

Add a healthy buritto to your morning! Half a buritto will serve any child or adult fine. This recipe makes 3 whole burittos, which you cut in half to make 6 servings.

1 half buritto per person. Serve hot and with orange juice to make a healthy meal.

You can eat these on your commute to work or school. They are yummy and easy. I hope you enjoy them

My son and I had for breakfast just this morning... And we can send the kids to school tomorrow with the other 4 halves!! Easy peasey!!

Chicken Pot Pie

Instead of canned soup mixes, I use gravy mix. It's much easier. It gives more flavor. The family loves it. I usually use canned biscuits for simplicity, but often find myself making my own. I am not sure how many this actually serves. I typically am serving 8 people and have leftovers to boot!

Classic Belgian Waffles

Yield: 10 (4 by 4-inch) waffles

Triple-Strawberry Dessert

Thanks! To Betty Crocker for this recipe!! YUMMY!

I can easily see this being made with Blackberries or raspberries.. And it would look amazing with one of those big fat berries on top!

Chicken Salad Wrap

This is something I tried at the Portland Mall, Maine. Their's had celery and pecans in it. It was goooood! I decided to reproduce it. Here's my take (no pecans or celery)

Up-side-down Fettucini Bake

My friend Mike gave me this recipe and it is gooooooddd!!

Honey Mustard Salmon

Pink Salmon steam cooked in the microwave for a very fast meal. It's yummy with the honey and mustard on it. From Zero to done in under 10 minutes. Serve with a yummy side salad and a baked potato. VERY yummy meal.

There are other recipes like this, but mine appears to be healthier.

My motto on this - Simpler is better.

You do not need to add salt, pepper OR lemon. It's great as it is..

Chocolate Dipped Frozen Bananas

A friend of mine made this and needed to add much more butter to get the chocolate to a dipping consistency. I think she might of done something wrong.

Just take it slow and easy :) And you will do just fine!!

These are, as Rachel Ray would say, YUM-O!!

Becca's Potato Mac Salad

I love potatoe salad - when its just potato and egg. I love Mac salad when it's just mac and peas.. So I combined the two and got this! LOVE IT! Kids gobble it up!!

Tuna Noodle Casserole

This is a fast and simple alternative to the Tuna Noodle Helper Casserole. My kids love it. I came up with this on my own, after realizing how much SALT I was putting into my kids' bodies by doing the kitchen Helper meals... Not this recipe isn't perfect, but I think it is much better the the boxed stuff.

kielbasa, onion, peppers, pineapple in a crock pot

Basically, I remembered this recipe online that had kielbasa, onion, peppers and pineapple in it. I remember it was on skewers, but I don't do skewers cos of the little guys. So I went and bought everything, with the thought of putting it all in a crock pot... So that's what I am doing! It's going to feed a LOT of people!!!

Hearty Slow Cooker Maple Oatmeal w/ Fruits

This heart healthy and hearty breakfast is a great way to start your family's day!

Cornbread Pudding ((Not a dessert))

I first had this about 15 years ago. I first thought it was wayyy to rich and be too hard for me to recreate. My mom assured me that it was NOT hard at all, and that it is FOOL PROOF as long as I didn't overcook it. So I trusted her, made it, loved it. Every Thanksgiving and Christmas, I serve this.

Breakfast Burrito

All the yummies of breakfast wrapped in a small tortilla wrap. Makes 3 servings.

Banana Vanilla Dream Smoothie = 1 MEAL

Take Herbalife Vanilla Dream and a couple bananas and some water, and what do you get? A interestingly enough DELICIOUS Meal Shake!

Chicken, Rice and Carrot ONE DISH Crock Pot recipe

One dish. Simple. Yummy. My kids like this dish. I learnt this recipe from my paternal grandma. She had a lot of children and said this was an often fix in her household while gramps was off working - he was a door-to-door salesman.

Monster Cookies

My little monsters LOVE these cookies. This is quarter of the recipe I usually make. It makes from 36 - 60 cookies, depending on the size. I use a very small icecream scooper that is aprox 1 inch across.

"Italian" Chicken Breasts MEAL

I have 8 children living with me. I have to do things BIG. They all have huge appetites. This is one of their favorite meals that I prepare during the winter.

Easy and filling. Satisfying as well!
