Creamy Chicken with Mushrooms

Do you ever crave something warm and creamy? Well, this dish fills that need. Yes, it is a need for me which says enough itself. Desperate times call for desperate measures. I tweaked a few recipes and this is the result. A yummy, low-fat, easy to make chicken dish. The wine really makes it special.

Easy Turkey and Cheese Quiche

Put it together in 10 minutes and wait for the smiles when it comes out of the oven. You can choose ham if you prefer. I used what was in the fridge. Also, you can add frozen, drained spinach, tomotoes, fresh mushrooms. Whatever sounds good can be thrown in.

Quiche - Quick, Easy and Always Good

This is a great basic quiche recipe. You can easily alter to your preferences. Choose bacon and swiss or spinach and mushroom or brocoli and ham. The combinations are endless.

Tortilla Soup

This is a super simple, "no fail" recipe. You won't believe how good it is. Tortilla soup is normally served with diced avacados, a tablespoon of sour cream and a tablespoon of grated cheese. I did not include the garnishes in the nutritional calculation. This recipe is so good you really don't need to add anything.

The Perfect Cornbread

I have grown up baking cornbread and this is my favorite. It sweet but not too sweet. The cornmeal is not overpowering but it there. It goes with everything from chili to roasts. Yum.

Meatball Stew

Comfort food at its best! This dish is super simple to make. It is healthy and delicious and easy on the budget. It goes well with cornbread. Yum!

Frozen meatballs make this even quicker!
Be creative. Choose your favorite vegetables. This is your comfort food.

Sangria - Blueberry Lemonade

This is a refreshing, light sangria that will be the hit of your party. The recipe came from "Sandra Lee" with TV Food Network. This was served at a party last night and every woman there asked for the recipe. I have to admit that I probably never would have made this had I not tasted it first. It is a must try recipe and will definitely be served at my next pool party.

The Best Taco Bean Soup Ever (Makes 20 1/2 Cup Serv)

Super easy, hearty bean soup. This is also really good with a can of diced tomatos and a jalapeno but the nutritional info did not include tomatos or the pepper. Cornbread goes well with this hearty soup.

This is a favorite in the fall at our football tailgate parties. We put it together in the morning and play the rest of the day.

The best Oatmeal Banana Muffins (and the're low fat too!)

Can you believe it? An oatmeal banana muffin receipe that is delicious and low fat. Wow! My husband says "This is a keeper!"

Grilled Tuna Salad (Barefoot Contessa's Recipe)

This is so easy and impressive. It will be the hit of the party (or just your absolute favorite tuna recipe). I add a little more soy sauce, more wasabi and lime juice but I like things with a kick. I do not think the sesame seeds add much so I make this without them to save time. I did not include the sesame seeds in the calorie calculations. I am posting the recipe as it was born. Give it a try. You won't be disappointed. Barefoot Contessa (Ina Garten) gets 5 stars for this recipe - it is easy and delicious! It looks great on a plate! Enjoy!

Cranberry Pineapple Gelatin Salad (Paula Deen's w/slight modifications)

Yum Yum! This recipe will have you coming back for seconds. It can be served as a side or dessert. I modified the recipe slightly from Paula Deen's original recipe. This was a hit at our 4th of July party and my guests are begging for the recipe. (That's how you know it's a keeper!) Enjoy!

Fat Free Chocolate Mousse

This is one of those must have recipes for chocoholics trying not to cheat. It is quick, easy and wonderfully creamy. It's great for diabetics as well. My kids can make this recipe with little help from Mom. They don't even know that it is good for them. Wow!

J's Yummy Pasta Salad

Quick, easy and great for cook-outs, pot-luck dinners or a picnic. I make my own dressing so I can control the fat. My husband loves this pasta salad. The dressing makes it special.
