Recipes I've Shared:

Strawberry Pretzel Dessert Lite

A family favorite that I've slimmed down a bit.

Creamy Pistachio Pie

Quick & delicious pie.

Crustless Coconut Custard Pie

This is a quick and easy recipe for satisfying a craving for sweets without as many calories as many pies. Try it with unsweetened coconut for even less calories. To add a bit of spice, sprinkle nutmeg over the top before baking. (Not figured into nutritional info.)

Fabulous Taco Soup

Wonderfully filling; full of protein & fiber. Serve with a few crushed nacho cheese chips and a dollop of low-fat sour cream.

Hamburger Noodle Bake - Lighter Version

Another family favorite I've tried to make into a healthier version.

Creamy Baked Penne

A friend gave me a recipe for creamy mac and cheese that I've modified to a healthier version.

Saturday Night Meatloaf-Lighter Version

This is a family recipe that I have slightly modified. I'm sure the fat and sodium contents could be lowered even more by omitting the salt, using skim milk and replacing the eggs with egg beaters.

Healthier Baked Beans

This is a variation on a recipe I've used for years. The nutritional values will show more fat and sodium than are actually in the dish as the bacon and beans are drained and rinsed.

Claudene's (Lighter Version) Sloppy Joes

This is a lighter version of a great family recipe. It's always a big hit with kids, even the very picky eaters. I have not included any bread or buns in the Nutritional Calculations for this recipe.
