Stone Wave Baked Apple Crisp

Great recipe from the Stove Wave recipe book. This little thing is a great tool for quick meals!

Chunky Chocolate Cookies

Semi-homemade with Duncan Hines Dark Chocolate Fudge cake mix.

Spicy Peanut Glaze

This sauce goes great with chicken and fish - especially good with grilled salmon. I also mix this with a 1/4 cup cooked pasta, some grilled chicken strips and sugar snap peas for an awesome lunch! Calories and fat are cut significantly by using PB2 powdered peanut butter. And it is JUST as yummy!

Lemon-Rosemary Chicken Breasts

Found this recipe on the Betty Crocker website. I LOVE lemon and rosemary is my favorite herb. Couldn't go wrong with this combination!

Chicken raisin pear walnut salad

A light lunch inspired by another SparkPeople member. Added a couple extra ingredients for a yummy and healthy lunch.

Grilled Lemon-Rosemary Chicken

From Betty Crocker....yummy! I serve with grilled red potatoes (with the same spices/lemon juice and a touch of tomato sauce) and a frozen mixed veggie.

Grilled Red Potatoes

These go great with the Mediterranean Turkey burgers and they're easy to make on the grill or in the broiler. You can lower the sodium by using a good grey sea salt (Celtic Grey is lower in sodium) instead of table salt. You can also add lots more flavor with some additional herbs. I chop some basil, rosemary, sage, whatever I can clip from my herb garden.

Lavender Pear Martini

I found the company that makes the pyramid shaped lavender tea bags they use in Ruby Tuesdays for this drink so now I can make them at home for a fraction of the cost!

Celle's Caprese Salad

Slightly modified from the recipe on the back of Sorrento's fresh mozzarella package.

Chicken and Zucchini Marinara

This has been a family favorite for years! But I've modified it a bit to lower the fat and calories. I used Ragu Light Tomato & Basil instead of marinara and you can lower the fat and calories even further by using part skim mozzarella.

Banana Oatmeal Pancakes

same as ELAINEHN but using yogurt and milk instead of cottage cheese and 2 servings instead of 4. Added lite maple syrup too.

Pina Colada Coconut Flounder

Slightly different take on the usual coconut flounder, the flavors from the Pina Colada mix kick it up a notch!

Fluffy Meatballs and Spaghetti

Use your favorite tomato sauce to cook these melt-in-your-mouth meatballs! The nutritional info allows for a full cup of cooked pasta per serving.

Zucchini Cheese & Bacon Muffins

It's always a hit at our house. I used to make it all in one pan but lined muffins tins are much easier - and it helps with portion control! These are great for lunch with a salad or as a snack. You can lower the fat a bit by using egg substitute and a lower fat cheddar, but I didn't have any on hand. I've also tried using 2 Tbsp canbola oil and 2 Tbsp light sour cream instead of the 1/4 cup oil but it does affect the texture a little - making them a little bit drier.

Rosemary Garlic Brown Rice

Modified ANYANA's recipe for less Parmesan and lighter broth to cut calories and fat.

Basil Tomato Chicken Skillet

This is from the Better Homes & Gardens Eat Well Lose Weight cookbook. I used fresh tomatoes instead of canned, added onion, spaghetti, and increased the chicken (my husband will never agree that four oz is a serving!)

Scallops with Lemon Basil Sauce

I altered Levelyn03's recipe a bit because I wanted the sea scallops seared rather than sauteed and I preferred olive oil to butter. Also, there wasn't enough sauce so I added more lemon juice and a bit of chicken broth. And because I am a maniac for anything lemon I also added some lemon zest. My husband never liked scallops and he really liked this dish. I also cut it down to 2 servings because that's all I cook for. Great job LEVELYN03!

Avgolemono

A slight variation on my husband's old family recipe.

My Homemade Taco Seasoning (Low Sodium)

Same ingredients as the packets but without the massive amounts of sodium! Makes 4 servings of 2 tablespoons each.

Asian Peanut Barbecue Glaze

You can substitute apple cider vinegar for the rice vinegar. And the PB2 cuts the calories by more than half!

Pasta with ground turkey and tomatoes

Super quick and filling. You can add additional veggies and switch to whole wheat pasta.

Mediterranean Turkey Burgers

I combined two other members' recipes, used turkey instead of chicken, and a basil/tomato feta instead of plain. My husband doesn't ask for beef burgers anymore!

Flounder Filet Stuffed with Spinach and Feta

This came from RecipeZaar; the only change I made was in using fresh spinach instead of frozen and I used tomato and basil feta instead of plain. It made it sooooo tasty! Next I'm going to try this stuffing in chicken cutlets. Great served with Lemon Garlic Spinach and a brown rice pilaf with raisins.
