Recipes I've Shared:

Almost Waffles!

I love waffles, but not the calories. So I tried this and it was wonderful!
I used the highest calorie-count Rice Cakes and Syrup knowing that if you use lower calorie count items, this is still as bad as it could get.

Pop's Cheesecake w/ Pumpkin

makes 5 mini-pans, 1/4 pan = 1 portion

Pop's Cheesecake, Neufchatel, 1/2 pound, 1/4 of recipe

Do not substitute yogurt for heavy cream.
Only saves 20 calories and although it does save on fat, it increases the sodium. Not a viable change.

Pop's Cheesecake 2 lbs, 8 servings

This is the original Juniors Cheesecake as made by my dad who worked 20 years for Juniors Famous Restaurant in Brooklyn, NY.

Linda's Cottage Cheese Cheesecake, Neufchatel cheese, 6 portions

Variation on the recipe found at:
www.ifood.tv/recipe/cottage_cheese_che
esecake

- I reversed the cream cheese and cottage cheese amounts, I used light yogurt instead of light cream or milk and potato starch instead of flour and 2 TBL Splenda Sugar-Blend - mixed with 1/2 Cup Splenda.

Meatloaf-Sausage Burgers

Makes 8-10 good portions which are tasty and filling.

Diane's Lemon Cheesecake Squares

...from Healthy Cooking Magazine

we changed the serving size to 12 portions, the magazine said 24 - way tiny!

Oma's Cottage Cheesecake @allrecipes.com

I changed the milk to yogurt and used 1/2 Cup sugar substitute, 2 TBL Splenda Sugar-blend.
I have omitted the graham cracker crust.

Incredible! (1 rating)
Flitters @ Diane's

like a pancake - only "poorer"

I had to edit the flour because whoever entered the Best Choice didn't list the right calories. Sorry.

OMG!! Watch the Sodium!!

Meatloaf Burgers

I make these because while I don't like meatloaf, I find I can digest these easier than plain hamburgers.

1/3 Whole Wheat Bread using 3/4 heavy cream, 1/4 whole milk, 16 slices to the loaf in Zojurishi

This is just me experimenting with my whole wheat flour. Next I will try half whole wheat.

Eggnog Bread,breadmachine, in Zo, 16 slice loaf, 1 slice serving

Wanted to try with eggnog!

This is basic white bread recipe where I just substituted eggnog for the water or milk.

Eggnog Cream Cheese Breadmachine, Zo 16 slice loaf

Just a variation on the cream cheese bread using eggnog as the liquid

Buttermilk White Bread, Whole Milk, Breadmachine, 16 slices

BreadMachine
Not a diet bread. This is my DH's favorite bread.

Really Rich White Bread, Breadmachine

BreadMachine Dessert like Bread.

Hamburger made with 30% sausage, 4 oz total

Made from our own ground beef with added sausage.

Rugalach Dough

Paul Probetsky - Junior's Restaurant Rugalach Dough aka Rugelach Dough
Dough needs to be refrigerated before rolling and using "fill", then roll up jelly-roll style. Cut into 1" pieces and bake.

Spaghetti & Veggies with Cheese

A quick tasty treat if you have some cooked pasta handy.

Think Thin Pasta

Pasta with tomato and cheese

Tuna Soup

We raise our own tomatoes and I was going to have just the tomatoes in the oil & vinegar but decided to add celery and cook. Looking at my Nutrition Tracker I needed to add calories and protein. I thought, why not add a can of tuna and some homemade broth. Well, I liked it! And boy is it filling plus adds protein and about 4 veggies if each tomato counts as 1.
