All American Potato Salad

this is a simple classic packed with flavor....always a hit.

chicken tortilla salad

This salad has a fair amount of fat even if you use light cheese. One option would be to forgo the avocado (a good for you fat) or purchase a lighter calorie dressing.

black bean and corn cilantro salad

Excellent as a pot luck dish (no mayo!) or to accompany mexican dishes

spicy chicken with veggies and peanuts

We added lots of veggies to a traditional recipe to make it a bit more lean.

fresh tomatoes are best!

Stuffed Green Peppers - Lower Fat and Spicy!

These peppers include jalapeno in the meat mixture but you can adjust the amount or leave it out all together. We also delete the salt but I leave that up to you.

Beef with Ginger and Vegetables

We didn't care for this one ---it was bland. We suggest adding more ginger, garlic and possibly some red pepper flakes!

Spicy Marinade for Grilled Vegetables

This sauce would be great on any grilled veggies. We used onion, zucchini and bell pepper but it would work great on corn, tomatoes, paneer, asparagus....

Anne's Pork Fried Rice

The more veggies the better!

Don's Awesome Tuna

Lots of good crunchy stuff!

Robusto Sauce

A spicy tomato sauce. Drain beef well. If you can afford the calories, add a half pound of spicy italian sausage along with the beef.

Broccoli and Cheddar Cheese Quiche with Garlic

We modified this recipe by using half and half instead of whole cream and added a red pepper. We further modified it by cutting the half and half by a third down to 1 cup instead of 1.5 cups.
