Crock Pot Roast Beef w/Root Vegetables and Chianti

My "tradition" of roast beef, with some added nutritional value from adding more vegetables. Rutabagas look and sound weird to people, but they're easy to cook in this recipe, and VERY high in potassium!Submitted by LEAKAY59

Curried Double Pea Salad

We didn't feel like cooking potatoes or macaroni to make a salad to go with our half subs, so we came up with this out of the cupboard instead. Not bad for a quick throw together!Submitted by LEAKAY59

Laurie's bacon and cheese omelet

Mostly I just built this to get the calories for my lunch one day, but decided to keep it "for posterity." It's pretty high in almost everything, but very nice for a once-in-a-while treat.Submitted by LEAKAY59

Mom's classic meatloaf

First time I've made this since joining Spark, so I had to run it through for the nutrition info. DH loves this version. I usually serve it with a baked potato and either a side veggie or a salad.Submitted by LEAKAY59

My "Secret" Meatballs and Sauce

After nearly a year, I'm still in the process of Sparking some of my standard recipes. Here is my son's favorite, and it stayed under 300 calories per serving! (Pasta is NOT figured in) I always make a huge batch and freeze in dinner-sized portions - I find it more economical that way, both in dollars and time.Submitted by LEAKAY59

As usual, my best concoctions are spur-of-the-moment, and happen when some ingredient is about to expire. This is one of those.Submitted by LEAKAY59

Ravioli with Roasted Rainbow Pepper Sauce

I handed my cooking club magazine to DH a couple of days ago when I left for work and told him to pick a recipe for next week. This is the one he chose, and I've modified it a bit to fit our budget better (theirs called for all red peppers!) and get more colors in it. Submitted by LEAKAY59

Need veggies? Try this for breakfast, brunch, or dinner!
I lightened this up from another recipe, and reduced the sodium, just by changing the cheese. Also made the serving size smaller, as 8 eggs plus everything else should make more than the original 6 servings, at least in my house!Submitted by LEAKAY59
