Rosemary Garlic Spinach & Chicken 5 Cheese Pizza

Upgrade your Marketside Take & Bake Pizza from the big box store with some veggies & extra protein. Add some more spices to bring it into "artisan" country, and no one will believe its take & bake!

High Protein One Pan Quinoa Beef Mix

We do beef & noodles, beef & rice, as well as beef & potatoes. This is beef & quinoa. The protein count is off the charts (41g) and you'll like that quinoa's protein balances its carb count, so your blood sugar won't spike & crash.

BAKED POTATO SOUP & SALAD

This is a one meal dish in a cup or a bowl: the Baked Potato has cheese & the Salad has spinach, onions, mushrooms & tomatoes greased in olive oil. A Chicken Breast completes the plate, ummm, bowl!

Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Goodness

Half the sugar, all the taste! Traditional chocolate chip recipe without nuts, but with twice the chocolate.

Beef and Bean Casserole on Wilted Spinach

Low glycemic load casserole that is high on taste and nutrition. High in carbs, due to the beans and potatoes, but low fat. Satisfies the tummy.

Tamarind & Rosemary Chicken Strut

Don't dance with the same old spices in the kitchen--take a new one out for a whirl every once in a while. Then you can come back to the same old foxtrot, two step, or waltz, but at least you haven't died in the same old taste. I mean, place!

Party Time Cheese & Herb Stuffed Red Potatoes

This is a filling side dish, with lots of nutrients, but it isn't low calorie, so don't fool yourself!

CORNIE'S WALDORF TUNA SALAD

This is also good with chicken breast chunks. Using 3/4 Greek yogurt & 1/4 real mayo makes this a healthier alternative for lunch. Good for salads or sandwiches.

Tricolor Beef Soup

Filling, full meal deal when divided into two servings. can be used as 4 small appetizer servings also, but why bother with all that fuss?!

TRADER CORNIE'S TRACK TRASH SNACK

I take this snack to the NASCAR races: it's a good blood sugar pick up and avoids the high fat trash food sold at the concession stands.

Almond & Chocolate Protein Bars

All natural sugars and good fiber are the basic carbs in this breakfast or snack bar. It is good for one carb & one protein serving.

Chocolate Sweetheart Strawberries

Special treat for your sweetie! Good any time of the year!

Shrimp & Veggie Parmesan

Eat your vitamins & minerals in great tasting food! Good health comes from good nutrition.

Snow Day Beef & Barley Soup

Why cook when you can play in the snow or cuddle up in the comforter with a good book while Mr. Crockpot slaves away in your kitchen? That's what I'm all about!

Kicking Avocado Dip

Healthy dip, but don't tell folks. No one will believe that non fat, no cholesterol, heart healthy can taste good! The secret is Greek yogurt.

Black Bean & Pumpkin Soup

A great soup to enjoy on a cold winter day. The velvet texture of the soup base feels like a warm blanket warming your insides.

Spicy Avocado Hummus Dip

Healthy dip for snacking. Satisfies without sacrificing taste.

Low Carb Peanut Butter Cookies (8g)

Oatmeal & whole wheat give these cookies a low glycemic index, so they don't raise blood sugars quickly or drop them either. Plus there's enough fat to keep your mouth interested.

make ahead mix to have for rainy days, quick holiday baking, or whenever you want something sweet right out of the oven. Dry ingredients stay good on the shelf.

Velvet Chili with Beans & Veggies

Excellent & filling dish for colder days. The vegetables increase the carb content, but the beans are a protein, the tomatoes are a vitamin C, and the mushrooms help beautify your skin.

Waste Not, Want Not Banana Walnut Bread

This sweet bread is an example of an earlier generation's ethic "waste not, want not." It should be named "waste not, want more!"

Summer Bounty Bowl

Poser Potatoes (Cheesy Cauliflower)

Frankenfood is banned from Cornie's Kitchen, but these POSER POTATOES are just early to the masquerade ball. The mild taste of cauliflower's low carbs replace potato's high calories and carbs, plus this dish tastes great!

Back From the Dead Chicken Noodle Soup

This soup would raise Lazarus from the dead! The salts, minerals, carbs & proteins, as well as the calories, are all high to restore the strength of a body & soul that has been ravaged by illness.

Light Alfredo Shrimp & Asparagus Pasta Dinner

Cornie's Creamer: how can nonfat taste so good?

I prefer whole foods to processed foods, but I wasn't losing weight. I had to cut my beloved Half & Half from my morning coffee, but instant creamer was just as bad. Skim milk alone was an assault upon my senses: not the best way to begin my day. Why not make two bads into a good?

Spicy Benedictine

This is a Kentucky blue grass state recipe, made with chia seeds for added nutrition. Traditionally served on crustless white bread, it's better on whole grain crackers or toasted breads.

Low Carb High Protein Low Fat Pizza (Frittata)

Crustless pizza? Actually, this is a frittata, or a baked egg concoction! It just has "pizza" ingredients, plus lots more veggies!

Low Carb Potato Salad

I love backyard barbecues! We don't seem to have much creativity for our menus: beans, potato salad, buns & burgers & cakes & pies for desert. Our theme is CARBS! At least you can bring a salad that you can eat guilt free.

Peanut Energy Bars (no Added Sugar)

Make your own energy bars and KNOW what's inside them. You can vary the seeds & the fruits for your own tastes.

Low Sodium Mac & Cheese with Ground Beef & Broccoli

You need to cut the cheese in half to make this a lower cal version, but it still beats Kraft M&C for the sodium content all week long. And the portion size is HUGE!

Mom's Chocolate Cookie Sheet Icing

Mama loved her sugar, but we are kicking this habit! This is her 1950's classic remade with Splenda. Worth licking the spoon afterwards!!

Mom's Chocolate Cookie Sheet

Mom cooked this whenever she had classroom treat duty or youth group snack responsibility. It feeds 48 large pieces or 72 small pieces. It's better ICED, so look for Mom's Sheetcake Icing.

Kale & Carrot Chicken Salad with Avocado Garlic Lime Dressing

Great cold meal for a hot summer's day! Good for a Ladies' brunch or for a man with an adventurous palette!

Cornie's Kitchen Kale & Avocado Salad

Great way to use up left overs or to make up fresh!
No canned produce used, no BPAs or preservatives.
Don't let the last few pieces of your produce go to waste--make soup instead!

Hearty Spinach Rice & Chicken Soup

Very thick and hearty soup, can add cheese for an even richer and more satisfying meal. This is a large & filling meal.

Greatest Chicken Pasta Soup

Why buy a canned soup with BPAs & high sodium content when leftovers will make a better tasting & healthier soup?

Maple Pecan Sweet Potato Casserole

Thanksgiving will have to come round more than once a year at your table once you include this tasty treat. It's not over sweet, and its fat comes from the nuts, not butter.

Chunky Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip & Banana Cookies

Don't eat raw dough, even though you will be tempted to lick your fingers! The egg must cook first! Practice Kitchen Safety!

You Can't Hide This Valley Yogurt Dressing

This great as a dip or a salad dressing. I like mine thick but you could thin yours with a touch of milk. I use mine to bind a cold quinoa salad for a tangy taste.

Cinnamon Oatmeal Breakfast Bars

All natural, non processed, made from scratch! Nothing from a can or a jar, just like your Granny on the farm used to make (except THE CHOCOLATE BITS, which I must have!)

CHERRY BLOSSOM WALNUT & CHOCOLATE DROP OATMEAL COOKIES

This is a springtime variation with white chocolate pieces. I also like the dark chocolate pieces for the antioxidant values. Makes 40 bite sized cookies.
