Recipes I've Shared:

Aunt Melissa's Granola (from Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day) - 1/2 cup serving

Very tasty granola; not as "clumpy" as some recipes, though.

Curried Carrot and Acorn Squash Soup

Creamy, spicy, and sweet! Makes 7 cups, which my husband and I split into four servings, to eat with bread for dinners.

Tasty Steel-Cut Oats (crockpot)

These steel-cut oats are tasty and rich, with generous serving sizes. They're also a ridiculously easy way to have breakfasts done for the week. They reheat really well.

Tuna Salad

This is a pretty basic tuna salad, good for 3-5 lunches, depending how much you like to have in your sandwich. If you stretch it to 4, enter that you had ".75 servings" in the Nutrition Tracker. Stretching it to 5? Enter ".6 servings."

Lasagna (wheat pasta, meat, lower-fat cheese)

With whole wheat pasta, low fat ricotta, spinach, and broccoli, this ends up being a pretty great meal.

Casserole-style Macaroni & Cheese (a healthier spin)

My family has a macaroni and cheese recipe that, for some reason, they really want to keep a secret. This version, with its whole wheat pasta and skim milk, isn't precisely what the rest of the family makes, so I don't think they'll kill me for sharing it. It's a hit at parties!

DA's Epic Trail Mix (Chocolate + Dried Cherries = WIN!)

Not the lowest-cal trail mix out there, but definitely my favorite. And fairly healthy, as they go! As I said to my husband, "It's like I took a whole bunch of things I love and threw them together!" Just like that, actually.

Strawberry Muffins

These are some tasty low-calorie muffins, made with fresh strawberries.
