Italian sausage and peppers

A quick weeknight family meal. I serve with potatoes but you could replace that with whole grain pasta. Side not included in calorie count.

Bean Cakes with jalapenos and lime mayo dressing

Use your food processor to prepare this recipe.

Lorna's Bran Muffins

Recipe makes 12 muffins. Can be doubled for larger batch.

Chick Pea Carrot dip

A spicy dip to be served with celery sticks or blanched green beans


This is a great antipasto recipe from my mother-in-law. I gave 1/2 pints in my Christmas baskets this year. Yummy!

Clam Chowder

This is a mixture of Boston and Manhatten style clam chowders. It's the way my Mom taught me to make chowder.
Sometimes I will make a pot with 3 cans of clams to make it extra clammy. Remember to add the extra calories if you add more clams.

Chicken and Asparagus

A great comfort food recipe to use up leftover cooked chicken or turkey.

Homemade Truffles

Makes approximately 60 truffles

Calico Beef Chili

This is my basic chili recipe. I add whatever veggies I have around for added nutrition. The tomatoes and tomato juice I use are reduced sodium varieties.

Helen's Spicy Shake and Bake

This is my mother-in-law's recipe for homemade shake and bake. I could never go back to store-bought now!
I divide the finished product evenly into 4 baggies and keep them in the freezer. Each baggie will coat 4 chicken breasts (12oz)

Rice and Barley Pilaf with Veggies

This is a big recipe. It makes at least 9 cups. It is fine to halve or even quarter the recipe.

Cream of Broccoli Soup

I have tried to cut back on the sodium but it is still quite high with the Velveeta. Perhaps cheddar is a better choice but I haven't tried it. If it works, I'll adjust the recipe.

Mini Chickpea Patties

Tasty little cakes are great finger food for a party, or a light main course when paired with a spinach salad.
