Salisbury Steaks

I got this recipe from emeals. Its a really good take on the traditional, but if I make it again I'll definitely add some more Worcestershire sauce, and maybe more tomato paste to the mix.

Oatmeal Banana Breakfast Muffins

No flour, no added sugar. I found this recipe at
m originally, but tweaked it slightly with what I had on hand.

Turkey Chili

Makeover of my staple chili. Nothing better to come home to than a bowl of this on a cold, wet day.

HG Meatloaf Minis

My husband and son loved them! Goes great with mashed potatoes and steamed green beans.

Adapted from Hungry Girl.

Better Pancakes

I've used the Betty Croker cookbook recipe for years to make pancakes because my family much prefers the flavor and texture of the homemade recipe to the boxed mix. This version uses whole wheat flour and cuts out the oil. Using skim milk would further reduce the calories and fat.

The original version has 322 calories, and 13 grams of fat. This version has only 194 calories and 2.4 grams of fat per serving.

Whole wheat pancakes

My boys love these. Much better than the boxed kind, from what they tell me.

Fish Rub

Found this on Universal rub for fish. For more spice, up the cayenne and garlic.

Spring Smoothie

My 7 year old son told me I had finally earned the Smoothie Mastery Achievement with this one! All natural ingredients, no sugar added. The only thing I would do differently is add some fresh spinach next time - the strawberries in the mixed fruit would hide the green.

Hearty nacho filling

Thrown together from things already on hand. Even my 7 year old picky eater loved it!

Power Smoothie

Healthy afternoon snack for when my body is craving cold. Not very sweet, but quite filling and it hit the spot. You can't taste the spinach at all.

Chicken Stew

Throw it in a pan and let it simmer.

Chicken Spaghetti

A family favorite

Healthier Pinwheels

My favorite way to hide veggies for my six year old son who hates them.

Whole wheat cornbread griddle cakes

Easier and faster than traditional cornbread.

Strawberry Shortcake in a Pan

Quick, yummy cake that doesn't need to be frosted.

Lemon Pepper Tuna Pasta

Great recipe from the back of Starkist packaging

15 Bean Soup

Family favorite that even my 7 year old son likes. Serve with whole wheat cornbread for a filling winter meal.

Baked Tilapia

My husband hates baked fish, but I was determined to find a way for him to eat fish without frying it (I don't need the carbs). This is what I came up with and both he and my 3 year old son loved it.
