Recipes I've Shared:

Peanut butter-flax-oat-chocolate energy balls

This recipe was shared on a breastfeeding board as a way to get in more oats and flax-- easy home made energy bar like snack with ingredients I always have on hand. It's also very forgiving if you don't have all the ingredients around!

5 Minute Lime Pie- NO Gelatin

Slightly modified from an old Light&Tasty magazine recipe

Butter Bean Salad

This is based very closely on a Rachel Ray recipe, just tweaked to my own preferences and with less oil. It doesn't need to sit for more than 15 minutes or so for flavors to blend, though it does get better with more time to marinate.

Dierbergs Banana Bran Muffins

Basically the recipe off the side of the bran flakes box, but a little bit lightened up.

Vegetarian Bean and Noodle Soup

My husband and I both got colds on an airplane flight. This our vegetariann version of a classic chicken noodle soup, except no chickens had to die! Yummy and easy enough to make from scratch even with a nasty cold.

Quick Yeast Roll

Slightly lightened up Betty Crocker recipe (based on what I had on hand)

Cranberry Muffins

Lightened up Betty Crocker version, no boxed mix

Frosted Banana Bars

Betty Crocker classic, lightened up

Emma's Eggnog

The Hungry Girl egg nog, made with the soy milk I had on hand.

Greek Salad Dressing

Fast, Easy, Tasty Salad Dressing

Cinnamon Apple Cake

This is a cake from Light and Tasty Magazine. My husband's FAVORITE fall dessert (although he'd eat it any time I'd bake it). A good way to use up the overabundance of apples that always pile up during the season.

Breakfast Bars

These make a great breakfast for kids and adults. They're easy to make, and packed with a lot of good for you stuff. They're also really filling, and great at room temperature or warmed in the microwave on a cold day. They also freeze and reheat really well.

Sweet Potato and Lentil Stew

This is actually from Betty Crocker, but it's so easy, tasty, and healthy. My husband and I both love it. It's perfect for cold winter nights, and we usually have most everything on hand for it already.

Morning Glory Muffins

I love morning glory muffins, but don't like the bakery ones full of fat and who knows what else. These are the ones I came up with to satisfy my craving. They avoid tasting like cake, and are pretty nutritious. My husband likes the coconut as is, but I would prefer less, and just sprinkled top. They would be good with some pineapple in them too.


Incredible! (1 rating)
Squash, Cider, and Apple Soup

I found this in the paper, and have very slightly modified it. It's from an man named Haedrich, but I don't have any other information to give him due credit!
My husband took one bite and said "Wow. . . this is fall in a bowl." It really is delicious on cold fall nights.

Tomato Basil Couscous and Lentils

Adapted from The New Vegetarian Cookbook

Apple Muffins

The original recipe came from thenest.com, but I modified it a bit and came up with these. I have a feeling they'd be good with some orange zest in them, and maybe some more cinnamon (but I LOVE cinnamon!)

Sauerkraut Salad

A much healthier version of the sauerkraut salad served at the Brick Haus restaurant in Amana.
