vegetarian pastelon (1 svg = 1/8 of recipe)

adapted from
04/vegan-pastelon.html. the original recipe is vegan, but i went ahead and used dairy cheese instead of vegan Daiya (which is super tasty but kind of pricy)

Shrimp Pasta with Tomatoes, Lemon and Spinach (1 cup/svg)

Oven-fried Rice Calas

for that awkward moment when you don't know what to do with the leftover side of rice that came with your Chinese food. original recipe for deep-fried calas here:

simple sweet potato and roasted vegetable soup

I got this random idea after helping make a roasted fall vegetable soup for an Iron Chef competition at school. I didn't have legitimate fall veggies--just a package of Birds Eye Grilling Blend vegetables and some sweet potato fries which i picked up in a Walmart freezer aisle--but I figured I'd get creative.

energy blend trail mix cookies

modification of an oatmeal cookie recipe i found online. the trail mix i used was an "energy blend" containing cranberries, almonds, pepitas, and edamame.

mixed berry corn muffins

Adapted a couple of different recipes to make this one. Made with Jiffy mix, these muffins are easy. With egg substitute and fat free Greek yogurt, they're fairly low calorie (for muffins, anyway).

lazy (wo)man's parfait

made for a good breakfast this morning.

pepperoni grilled cheese sandwich

Made this for dinner last night, and it was pretty tasty. I used turkey pepperoni to shave off some calories.

adapted from this recipe:

Mexican pizza

finding interesting uses for the leftover 4 ingredient soup i froze months ago. inspired by this recipe:

Mixed Berry Yo-K Parfait

Bought some frozen fruit and some special K granola, and I thought I'd do a little experiment with some Yoplait yogurt. ;)

Bran Flake Muffins

from the back of an old Bran Flakes box.

Quick Brown & Wild Rice w/ Flaked Salmon

My sodium count was too high to do the usual Healthy Choice dinner tonight. So I threw this together in 5 minutes on a whim based on what I had in my cabinet.
