Recipes I've Shared:

Mexican Chicken and Rice Soup

This is a yummy and easy meal. 3 WW points plus (or 4 depending on the amt of chicken!) :D
Add avocado, cheese and tortilla chips at your discretion.

Pumpkin Dessert Squares

Less fiddly than a pumpkin pie but just as yummy; if not YUMMIER! Everyone asks for the recipe when I bring this somewhere. Not necessarily "healthy" but I wanted to have this in the files so I can include it in my calorie counting!

Dark Chocolate Coconut Granola Bars

Creamy Rice Pudding

Even pared down from the Kitchen Boss full-cream and yolks-only version that made me crave rice pudding, this is still an indulgence!

Accidental Sloppy Joes

Tried to make burgers but they fell apart! :( Decided not to fight it and threw in tomato soup and paste, and ... YUM!

Quinoa Guacamole Salad

You should try this, at least once. It is so so so good!

Mexican Quinoa Salad

You should try this, at least once. It is so so so good!

Stack Cooker Apple Cake

Cake in 10 minutes! Using my awesome Tuppeware Tupperwave Stack Cooker; man I love that thing - and 1/6 of a cake under 100 calories!!!

fANNEtastic food's Oatmeal Banana Coconut Cookies

From the great fANNEtastic food, one of my favorite food blogs- here is a link to the original recipe:

Aunt Big's Gingersnaps

From my favorite cookbook, How to Cook Everything - these are sooo yummy and great with some spicy Earl Grey tea!

The Best Homemade Tortillas

Store-bought tortillas are so expensive, and so full of salt! One 12" tortilla can contain 20% of your daily sodium, yuck! These are worth trying, at least once - I promise you'll love it ;)

YUMmy Apple Cake (or Muffins)

You wouldn't even know that this is low fat; it tastes just as yummy as if you used butter and more sugar :P.
From a fellow Sparkie's Apple Cake recipe, modified for an even lower calorie count!

Kristy's Scratch Lasagna

I just have to say that if you can make rolled cookies, you can make pasta - no fancy equipment required! Fresh noodles are infinitely better, and you don't have to bother cooking them before assembling the lasagna, which makes them waaaay easier to handle!

Sunshine Soup

A yummy, golden soup with soft and sweet butternut squash and pearl barley to warm you up on a winter's day.

I can't eat enough of this, it's soo good!

Whole Wheat Honey Flax Bagels

My own recipe, adapted from a plain bagel recipe in my favorite cookbook ;o)

Old School Whole Wheat Bread

Nothing beats this;
Makes 3 loaves or 3 dozen buns.

Low Fat Guacamole Dressing

I made this up when I wanted to have some guacamole on my taco salad last week. It is SO so good; I highly recommend trying it at least once!


Very Good (1 rating)
Summer Fruit Salad for One

I made this tonight while trying to fight a serious craving for a cinnamon bun! It was pretty yummy!

Chicken and Mushroom Skillet

From a Canadian Living cookbook. Made it for dinner tonite, and I'd make it again! There was lemon zest in the original that I've omitted b/c for me it was the only thing I didn't like about it. Otherwise a great dish!

Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies

How To Cook Everything's recipe, but 1/4 cup less butter, splenda for the white sugar and half whole wheat flour. Still an indulgence!

Homemade Pita Bread

From the best cookbook ever, How to Cook Everything! I don't put my oven to 500 as the recipe instructs; my oven is a good 50 degrees too hot as it is and my fire alarm goes nuts at 400! The pitas just take a minute or two longer and they are no less yummy. Can be made with all white flour; 142 cals and 1.6 grams of fat.

Apricot Yogurt Cookies

Another one from The Ultimate Low Fat Baking Cookbook! Not bad.

Caesar Fakeout Dressing for One

I came up w/this today for my salad as I was craving a caesar-y flavor. Would also be good w/a little dijon added!

Bran Flax Muffins

From the back of Bob's Red Mill Flaxssed Meal, modified just a wee bit (the dried apricots and whole wheat flour). I LOVE these muffins, they are super yummy, and @ under 3g of fat, with 4.5g of fibre and all those vitamins? Is there a better muffin?!

Banana and Apricot Chelsea Buns

15-20 minutes kitchen time plus rising. This is a yeast bread recipe, after all!
From "The Ultimate Low Fat Baking Cookbook". I love baking and this book is my savior!!! These are a yummy fix for my cinnamon bun cravings!

Rachael Ray's Fajita Chilaquiles Casserole

This looks so good I just need to see if I could get away with eating it! Not sure precisely how much one serving is (as I haven't made it yet) but I figure it could be split into 6 no problem!
