Recipes I've Shared:

Crockpot chili with sausage

This chili uses chicken breakfast sausage in addition to ground beef to add flavor and reduce fat. Always a favorite everywhere I take it.

Spaghetti a la Puttanesca

Olives, capers and anchovies give this dish a zesty kick compared to plain jane tomato sauce.

low fat - Tres Leche Cake with Dulce de Leche Topping

Very reduced fat in this version, the cake is dense and not at all mushy, which you would expect from the drenching it gets. yummy! Takes 4 hours to chill.

Shmoo's Baked Orange Chicken and Lightly Fried Rice w/Egg

Trying to redo this delicious meal to be healthier than the original version, and it turned out quite tasty! Original method of deep frying the chicken and using more oil in the rice would be about 750 calories and 35 grams of fat for this meal. So a 100 calorie difference on total calorie count, and 24 grams less fat. =)

Shmoo's Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Slightly healthier option, margarine instead of butter and extra oats for filler. I also use raisins in this instead of chocolate chips sometimes.

French Style Peas

A remake of a Nigella Lawson recipe.

Sage & Onion Flavored Chicken, Sausage & Potato Bake

This is a modified version of a recipe I originally watched Nigella Lawson make. More flavor, less fat, and includes a carb sidedish.

Simple Pancake or Waffle Batter

A basic recipe that doesn't use buttermilk, and can have fruit added if desired.

Fall Spice Cookies (Acorn Shape)

Ok, these are not really healthy, but they are small and delicious for a quick sweet tooth fix.

Cuban Rice Pilaf (brown rice)

I took 2 of my favorite things, Cuban yellow rice, and baked garlic rice pilaf and combined them, with yummy results. Can be done with white rice too of course, this has brown calculated.

Lamb Meatballs

I counted 2 tblsp veg oil in the recipe for calories, you use more for frying, but that is about how much ends up missing from the pan at the end.

Shmoo's Spaghetti Sauce

Made with turkey sausage and extra lean beef, excellent over noodles, spaghetti squash, or eggplant.

Badenjan Dip

Eggplant dip, I leave the skin in mine for more flavor.
