Grateful Grahams Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Ice Cream Sandwiches

Grateful Grahams are wonderful all-natural, homemade vegan graham crackers made by a small company in Cincinnati. For info, check out their Facebook page:

Their grahams are softer and thicker than the crackers you buy in the store, so they make awesome ice cream sandwiches. I'm sure regular graham crackers could be substituted, but I HIGHLY recommend you use the Grateful Grahams instead.

I got this recipe from Weight Watchers. It's one of my husband's favorites.

1875 Lobster Mac & Cheese

This recipe is from the 1875 Steakhouse inside the French Lick Resort & Casino in French Lick, IN. It was published in a newsletter. I reduced the amount of cream and cooked macaroni because it's only 2 of us. (Original amounts were cream = 1 quart, macaroni = 10 cups). I still ended up with 10 servings. I also used whole wheat macaroni, and pre-packaged bread crumbs, but the original recipe has you using regular macaroni and a food processor to mix 6 slices white bread, 3Tbs chives and 3 tbs parsley).

No-Bake Cherry Cheesecake-like dessert

Made this up using what I had on hand

Dark Chocolate & Banana on Graham Crackers

Modification of this recipe:

Jenny's Jambalaya

Modified this recipe from one I got off of a Weight Watchers message board several years ago. The original recipe called for green and yellow peppers to be sauteed with the Canadian bacon, but our household is not a fan of peppers, so I leave them out. Feel free to add them back in if you'd like.

Crockpot Chicken Curry

Yes, it's high in sodium, so it's an occasional treat. But, very yummy and easy

Easy Orange Mustard Pork Loins

This is surprisingly tasty! Another one of my husband's favorites.

This recipe came from Better Homes and Gardens magazine and was a winner of some contest, I think.
