Recipes I've Shared:

Greek Chicken and Spinach Orzo

This is derived from/inspired by a recipe I found on allrecipes. I increased the amount of spinach and added the olives, sun dried tomatoes, and feta.

Lower Fat Buffalo Chicken Dip

This popular dip is lightened using light cream cheese (neufchatel) and nonfat yogurt. The serving size given is per one ounce (by weight) so you can easily multiply by the amount actually consumed.

Goetta (made with ground beef and pork sausage)

Goetta is a German-American breakfast food popular in Cincinnati. It is usually served as a side dish (as sausage would be,) but we tend to eat it as a breakfast in its own right. This is my version, which has evolved from a similar recipe I copied from my mom's recipe box years ago. The original called for ground beef and pork (not sausage), less onion, fewer bay leaves, and less lots less pepper. I like it highly seasoned, thus the adjustments.

Asparagus Bisque spa-style

I copied down this recipe years (decades) ago. It was purportedly a spa recipe, but I don't recall which one. At any rate, it is tasty!

Hodgson Mill Buckwheat Pancakes (prepared)

This recipe uses the quantities for making "12-14" pancakes listed on the box, but the my yield is 8 large pancakes, serving size 1 pancake. I use a medium size ice cream/cookie scoop to portion the batter.
