Peanut Butter Graham No-Bake Cookie- SINGLE SERVE

Tired of oatmeal-based no bakes? Peanut butter + graham are a match made in heaven! Just enough for a nonchocolate sweet craving, with plenty of protein and fat to balance out the sugar.

Grain-free almond meal pancakes

High in protein and low in sugar, these are light, fluffy pancakes that even flour-pancake lovers will enjoy!
*Tweaked liberally from http://www.elanaspantry.com/pancakes/*

Banana Yogurt Muffins

Looking for ways to get protein snacks into the kids, this uses 2% Greek yogurt and some protein powder to bump it up. I used part honey and part maple syrup because the honey was giving me fits coming out of the container - you could use 1/2 cup of just honey and omit the maple syrup, or probably 1/4 cup maple syrup and eliminate the honey (taste the batter and decide if you need more).

Jif Irresistible Peanut Butter Cookies

The best PB cookies, awesome every time.

They even come out great mixing by hand.

I like to roll them into balls instead of using spoon/drop method.

Add in any odds/ends chocolate chips or others for an even tastier treat.

Smitten Kitchen Lime Yogurt Cake

This is an easy, delightful, one bowl, everyday cake. It tastes like summer!

Banana Bread - Better Homes & Gardens Original

This recipe is slightly tweaked from an older version of the BH&G cookbook (my mom's), not the "new" one (I got mine in 1997). I like this recipe better than the newer one.

Sugar Cookie Glaze

Nice and glossy, dries hard but doesn't crack.

Hellman's parmesan chicken

This is the recipe from the mayonnaise jar, slightly modified with less mayo and cheese per breast. I make 3 breasts for my family; 1 split breast each for my husband and me, and 1/2 of one for each small child.

Potato Bundles - adapted from Pioneer Woman

I adapted these to bake with a chicken dish, and also used less butter and half and half instead of cream. They were still delicious!

Ground beef and bean chili

Basic, but delicious, chili - not too hot, not too mild

Pasta Carbonara

This is a great side dish; add in some meat and veggies with the pasta and you have a one dish meal! Cubed chicken and zucchini lightly sauteed are great over top of this pasta.

Bacon Veggie Quiche

A quick, easy, delicious quiche!

Halupki Casserole

An adaptation of a family recipe.


Very Good (2 ratings)
Bacon-Vegetable Quiche

Easy and delicious quiche - use up whatever veggies you have leftover from the week and dump them in!

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Granola Bars

I make these bars as a homemade version of Quaker's peanut butter chocolate chip bars. They are not necessarily low cal or low fat; I make them for my very active kids to have a homemade alternative, so I know the ingredients that are going in are mostly healthy, and no strange chemicals.

Banana Oat muffins

I make these in mini muffin pans to give an easy to eat on the go breakfast.

Sugar Cookies-Better Homes and Gardens New Cookbook

Best homemade ones I've ever made - not too sweet. I'll never use a tube or mix again.
