Recipes I've Shared:

Baked Pumpkin Filling with Graham Crackers From 1-2-3 Pumpkin Butter

You can also use 1-2-3 pumpkin butter to make 2 pie's worth of filling just skip the butter and graham crackers and use pie crust instead. My kids don't like the crust, so I don't bother.

1-2-3 Pumpkin Butter for pumpkin pies

I'm always looking for a way to easily remember proportions for cooking. Because we grow pumpkins and winter squash every year, I make pumpkin butter and freeze it to use in pies and breads. This is a simple 3 ingredient butter made from fresh pumpkin puree.

Lighter Pumpkin Pie with Graham Cracker Crust

This is a lighter version of a pumpkin pie with a graham cracker crust. This recipe overestimates the calories by a bit. I usually have filling left over after filling my pie. I usually put it in a baking dish and bake it with the pie.

Incredible! (1 rating)
Banana Spice Oatmeal Mush

I created this recipe because I wanted a complete breakfast made in one pot. All the ingredients in this recipe are combined at once before heating. The resulting product is aptly named "Mush". The texture may be off-putting to some people, but I actually like my bananas well integrated into my oatmeal.

Whole Wheat Banana Bread with Chocolate Chips

This is a version of banana bread that's a bit healthier. This recipe makes two loaves. I loosely followed the Better Homes and Gardens banana bread recipe...just to get the portions correct. I make two, one to freeze for later.

Lightened Up Dark Zucchini Bread

This is a lightened up version of the Dark Zucchini Bread Recipe in "The Zucchini Cookbook" by Paula Simmons, copyright 1974 by Pacific Search, page 11. I also substituted mini chocolate chips for nuts in the recipe.

Cacik Yogurt and Cucumber Sauce

This is from The Mediterranean Diet by Nancy Harmon Jenkins. I modified it a bit because I have a lot of fresh mint (she uses dried) and I wanted a bit less oil. This makes about 2 cups.

Blackberry Topping

Since we have so much fruit this time of year, I decided to make my own fruit toppings for yogurt. When finished I ended up with 2 cups of topping. I use about 2 tbsp of topping for 1/2 cup yogurt.

Chocolate Raspberry Muffins

I have fresh raspberries in my garden this time of year. I thought a chocolate-raspberry muffin sounded delicious, so I gave it a try.

Curried Rice with Shrimp

This is from Real Simple,

Blueberry Sauce

Low calorie no sugar blueberry sauce that can be eaten by itself or added to yogurt.

Chicken Chili with Corn

This is a quick chili recipe with tomatillo and tomato sauce. I created this dish when I had a leftover baked chicken breast.

Open-face Egg Salad Sandwich

A filling open-faced sandwich that tastes great.
