Recipes I've Shared:

Black Berry Viniagrette

Quick easy, low calorie home made dressing that tastes great on mixed greens.

Peasant Bread

Easy homemade bread, can be made ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator until ready to back. Up to two weeks. The longer the bread sits, you will get a sourdough flavor

Harvest Grains and vegetables

Found this grain mixture at Trader Joe's, wanted to make a lighter side summer salad, as a cold side dish option

Sour Cherry Cobbler

My neighbor brought me some cherrieas from his tree, needed to come up with a recipe to use them up. Went with a dessert. Not super low calorie, but not too bad for dessert and works in a few daily essentials!

Incredible! (1 rating)
Super Moist Banana Bread

This is a tred and true recipe that my husband LOVES. However the original recipe called fro 1 cup of Crisco oil! I have been messing with this recipe to cut out some of the bad calories. This version was FANTASTIC, even better than the original. I think you could easily add a whole wheat flour, or even a little oatmeal to fatten the nutrition value.

Turkey and spring vegetables

I had a bunch of leftover vegetables, turkey and gravy from a family dinner left over. Needed to find a way to use them up, so I made this throw together casserole. The gravy makes it a little higher in calories than I like, but it's a great way to use up some leftovers in the fridge, and a fairly easy and quick dinner

Greek Style Lettuce Salad

I really love the flavors of greek style foods. So I took some of my favorites and made them into a regular salad with greens. With the hopes of cutting down the calories. I have the salad as a meal and sometimes put a little grilled chicken or some couscous with it. Cut the salad in half for two side dishes

Egg bake

I modified a couple of recipes for my taste. Make these ahead of time and freeze individuall for a quick breakfast

Turkey ham and vegetables

I threw this together with some leftover veggies. Turned out pretty good! My daughter and I both thought the concoction was something like what you would find at a mongolian style grill--without all the spices. Next time we will experiment with some spices from the spice cupboard

Blueberry Pancakes (vegan recipe)

These yummy pancakes are a great breakfast start. You can use frozen blueberries instead of fresh.

Chicken and vegetable salad

This is a variation of the asian salad. I had to improvise as I didn't have all the ingredients in the original recipe on the meal plan. Lots of veggies and a store bought light viniagarette I had on hand.
