Recipes I've Shared:

Thumbprint cookies with jam

These aren't very low calorie, but the cookies are big and rich enough to satisy at 255 calories. Delete the nuts and try Splenda Brown sugar to further reduce the calories.

Banana Cream Pie in a bowl

Tastes just like the pie Mom used to make, but easier and not as many calories. This makes a filling dessert.

Pearl's Sour Cream Dressing - Light version

A reduced calorie version of my mom's sour cream dressing. Only 20 calories a tablespoon.

Sour Cream Salad Dressing

Mom's delicious sour cream dressing. At 47 calories a tablespoon it's a bit of indulgence, but not too bad. And don't skip the anchovy paste. I hate anchovies but the flavor is extremely subtle and absolutely essential.

Cheesecake pudding

Crumble a graham cracker and cut up half a golden kiwi (or other fruit). Top with 1/4 c. of pudding.

Pumpernickle Sourdough Rye Bread

Makes 2 loaves. This is not labor intensive but it takes a lot of time. I make small rolls and freeze them. I can pull them out to thaw individually and reheat to crisp them up. I use currents, but raisins work well too. You can also add caraway seeds instead.

Zucchini Pancakes

Crispy treat! Great with Yogurt Dill Dip!

Strawberry Cheesecake ice cream

This is slightly modified version of the Strawberry Cheesecake Shake recipe by Oilpainter.

Deviled Eggs

This was a variation on another Spark recipe.
