Lima Beans, (from dried), 1/2 Cup

A basic recipe for dried large lima beans.

Sloppy Joe's

Great as a sandwich or over salad or nachos.

Tortellini Salad by Ali

So yummy and versatile. Change up any of the ingredients to your taste. Prefer ham to provolone? No problem. Prefer cheddar to swiss? Make the change. This goes real fast in my house and is a nice side to a lot of meals. Enjoy!

Very Veggie Soup by Ali

It doesn't get much healthier than this. Wanted a soup using cruciferous veggies and came up with this. Serve with a healthy sandwich to get a well rounded meal.

Roasted Veggies ala Ali

Wow! So delicious... goes with any dish. Chock full of vitamins and potassium.

Salad with Baby Shrimp

Yummy, easy and low fat. Add your fave dressing and a nice crunchy bread. Great for lunch or dinner.

Ali's Bean Soup

Great on a chilly night to warm up with. Serve with a nice salad or also great with a grilled cheese sandwich. High in fiber and low in fat. Freezes well for handy lunches.

Eggplant, Black Beans & Pasta

Loaded with fiber and vitamins, but low fat. Serve with a nice crunchy bread. Leftovers make an easy lunch the next day.

Pizza by John

My son started making this years ago when he had to make up a recipe for third grade. That was 1991/1992. This is still one of our absolute favorites. So adaptable to changes. Add or delete veggies as desired, or add ham or pepperoni.

Beef Roast Supreme

Delicious! Can also be cooked in a slow cooker. This recipe makes its own gravy. Once in the oven, don't peek. It has the best aroma when done.

Sweet and Sour Meatballs, 3 meatballs

Only 3 ingredients and super easy. Serve over rice or as an appetizer.

Beef and Bean Chili ala Ali

A quick meal full of taste, protein and fiber. Freezes well and can be used as a potato or salad topping or on top of tortilla chips. Add a side salad and you're set. Can serve over rice or corn bread.


A basic recipe with 12 servings. Leftovers are great heated up or for sandwiches. Also great in spaghetti sauce, or chopped up with salsa and served with tortilla chips.

Ali's "Kind of" Gumbo

Easy to make and tasty. Needed to use up bits and pieces of things in the fridge. Very tasty. Didn't think to use file. Would have been great with some seafood if you have it.

Tuna Salad by Ali

My reduced calorie version. I love it open face on lightly toasted bread with a slice of tomato. Top with a slice of your favorite cheese and broil until the cheese melts. Also good on top of a tossed salad.

Ali's Amazing Pasta

I was having "one of those days" and needed a quick dinner. I threw this together, and liked it so much, had to write down the recipe to make again. Even DH, who was not sure about it, loved it. Lots of veggies and easy to substitute what you have on hand. Great with a side salad and some bread. Enjoy!

Super Easy Vegetable Soup

So easy and tasty. High in fiber. Freezes well. I use mixed veggies that have lima beans in them. I will also add any leftover veggies that I have.

Chili with Lentils

A great tasting chili made with lentils instead of meat. Low calorie and packed with fiber. Add more or less seasonings to taste. Also good with some chocolate added.

Cool Veggie Salad

Cool and refreshing. Try it with a spicy dish as a nice change.
