These are just recipes I make frequently. Most of them are variations of common foods I have come up with over time, although when I find a recipe I like from someone else I add that too. I've got 5 people in the house so many of these make a high volume of food.

Sneaky Tacos

Taco night is one of my family's favorites. This recipe came about because: 1) I needed to make tacos go further; and 2) I wanted even the picky ones to get their veggies. There's no huge breakthrough, except you get a serving of vegetables for every 2 tacos, BEFORE adding the condiments!Submitted by SPRING1973

Smoothie Popsicles

This combines high protein/high calcium yogurt with powerful anti-oxidant berries into a yummy dessert or snack. To maintain the pro-biotic benefits of live culture yogurt you can eat this immediately as a thick frozen shake. You can also freeze leftovers in popsicle forms for later or run the whole thing through an ice cream maker for a softer frozen treat. Please note, the freezing process freezing kills most of the live cultures in the yogurt (but it still tastes delicious!)Submitted by SPRING1973

Quick S'mores for 1

A quick chocolate fix without the guilt!

A full size Hershey milk chocolate bar has 210 calories & over 13 grams of fat. Yet, take a quarter of that, add a single marshmallow & 2 squares of graham crackers and you have a gooey, chocolate treat with only 136 calories & 4.7 grams of fat. Just don't eat the rest of the bar!!!
