Fried Yellow Squash Patties

Serve with a large green salad and you have a nice lite summer dinner.

Garlic Parmesean Seafood and Bok Choy

Great for low carb dieting such as South Beach phase 1. For phase two serve with pasta, rice or other grain.

fluffy flax waffles

Oh, my! This works for South Beach phase 1 and is SO delicious!

AWESOME lasagna with hot Italian sausage, spinach and whole wheat noodles

Oh wow. I love to make lasagna and tonight this one beat them all! This is the first time I ever tried whole wheat no-boil noodles and they were the moistest, tastiest noodles ever! I hope you like it!

chicken Tortilla Soup (no tortillas)

Quick and easy for a chilly night! This is the basic recipe. Add cheese, tortillas or what ever to indavidual servings and calculate separately. Enjoy!

stuffed zuchinni (no bread crumbs, no egg)

Tonight I'm stuffing the end of a huge zuchinni that was hiding in my garden. It was the size of a club! I'm staying away from egg and bread crumbs, so it will be saucier than usual, but the mozzerella cheese should hold it together a bit.

Chinese Chicken Salad - no sugar added

Oh, yum! My family loves this! I use an artificial sweetener and almonds instead of ramen noodles to make it suitable for my weight maintenance needs. I double the dressing but you can lower sodium or fat if desired by cutting half the salt or oil.

healthy chorizo and eggs

I just about died and went to heaven just now when I made this for my breakfast! The hotter you can take it the better as far as the sauce you use goes. Get those eye lids watering with this hot and healthy breakfast!

Hot Night Pasta Tuna Salad

This is my kid's favorite dinner for a hot night! I have adjusted it so that I can eat it as well by using whole grain pasta, greek yogurt, light cheese and other healthy choices. It sounds strange, but they beg for it!

Crockpot ravioli with vegetable marinara sauce

I started out this recipe with my all my favorite veggies in a nice red sauce. Rushing out the door I decided to take a chance and throw it into the crockpot with some ravioli for a while and it turned out great! I hope you like it too!

Three Bean Vegetarian Chili

I have had this recipe forever. It's been with me through many healthy meals. The carrots and zuchinni are shred finely so they are hidden from suspicious eyes. Great with monterey jack or parmesean cheese and some fresh green chili or jalapeno on top.

Carroll Shelby Chili w/ ground turkey and veggies (no salt or masa)

I love this chili! Made it lighter and healthier by using ground turkey, onion and red pepper. Enjoy!
