Mixed Meat Curried Meatloaf

I found this butchers blend of beef pork and veal. Grabbed another pound of ground pork, seasoned it up with some curry spices. Great for keto diets because there's no carbs at all.

Simple Chicken Soup

Had to do something quickly with a package of chicken I bought on a discount.

Laura's Chicken Salad

Use whatever savory seasonings you like, to kick up this simple salad. I prefer a combo of turmeric, garlic, cayenne, black pepper, but you might enjoy lemon pepper, Italian seasonings, etc.

Braised & Smothered Pork Steak

Make your own adjustments as needed

Kicked-Up Tuna Salad

Use whatever seasonings you like. I opted for turmeric, ginger, black pepper and cayenne. Given the sodium in the various ingredients, I didn't add salt. I also used GV tuna, the big 6.4oz packet.

Applesauce & Oats Meatloaf Muffins

Borrowed from various other recipes, to get a hearty meatloaf muffin. I used 80% ground chuck, and Sara Lee Delightful bread, you can adjust these as you like.

Stewed beet greens and stems

Decided to try something new and bought fresh beets. Then I had to figure out what to do with the stems and greens so as not to waste anything.

Bratwurst Stew

Had to find a way to use an open and thawed package of bratwurst.

Red Bean Soup

Could be served over rice, but I'm cutting carbs, and have tried to maximize protein.

Stewed spinach with ham and quinoa

Needed a way to quickly use some bagged spinach.

Crock-Pot Hot Pepper Pork & Butternut

This is high in sugar, and is designed to be served over rice, so be careful if you're diabetic.

Ree Drummond's Creamy Cheese Grits

I wrote what the recipe calls for, but I actually used regular broth, not low-sodium.

Cheesy Amish B'fast Casserole - allrecipes

Not my recipe...find it at

Crock Pot Chicken & Rice (

not my recipe, only putting here to get a calculation for the tracker - some liberties were taken with amounts as we needed more than the recipe would make

Cream of Celery Soup - Homemade

Had a lot of celery tops and a can of Meyenberg milk. Ta-da!

Oyster Veggie Soup

Had to come up with something to do with some oysters before it was too late.


used drippings from baked chicken for 1 cup of the liquid - not in SP's listings, so I improvised to make sure the fat was accounted for

Guac Hummus

This is a throw-together of avocado, hummus & yogurt, with some salsa for kick. The Recipe Calculator doesn't have the exact items I used, so I fludged a bit.

Thrown Together Eggplant-Beef Stew

had some eggplant I had to do something with, and just scrambled some stuff together

Crackers - Coconut Rye

Found a site that gives simple directions for making your own custom crackers. So, I'm going to start making my own and entering them here. Check the site out:

Creole Vegetarian Lima Beans

This can be eaten as a soup, or over rice or pasta. A good, crusty, french bread is great with it. (You can do any bean with this recipe, and it'll come out awesome.)

PB & Oat Dessert Balls, 2/serving

I was in the mood for PB and sweet, and wanted something other than just PB. I no longer make my PB Balls (PB, powdered sugar & dry milk), but I wanted something like that with better nutrition. Ta-da! Still need to experiment on the composition, they're too wet. Maybe more milk or oats or less yogurt. We'll see. Taste great! :-)

Jason C's Fried Rice

Simple, tasty, not exactly the healthiest thing - wonder how it would do with brown rice and less bacon?

Barefoot Contessa's (almost) Roasted Tomato Basil Soup (Food Network)

My friend made this, but "improved" it by trading out the 1 can of canned plum tomatoes for 2 cans of Del Monte Diced Tomato Basil, Garlic, Oregano, thereby upping the salt dramatically. I also see that there is an enormous amount of salt & fat in the original recipe, for an otherwise potentially healthy soup. I've already eaten it (tastes amazing!), so I had to find out what I ate, but if I ever make it, I'll make a few substitutions of my own.

Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff I (

Someone else made this for us, not sure it was done exactly this way, and it doesn't say what volume makes one serving, so I'm doing a lot of guesswork. The nutritional info does not include the noodles.

Greens & Summer Veggies

will only use this recipe once, unless somehow I end up with all these items again at the same time.

Karen's Southwestern Chicken Salad

not my recipe, I just need to quantify it

MJ's Curried Veggie Quinoa

This is lovely...MJ didn't give me amounts, I extrapolated. You can customize this by the type of stock you use, the types of veggies you include, the amount of oil, the sodium content, etc.

Palatable Blue Runner Red Beans, No Salt Added

can't handle the no salt added Blue Runner beans, so I figured out a way to both get the soupy texture I want and have some actual taste, without going overboard with sodium

Karen's Shrimp Saute'

This is a partial list of ingredients for a recipe (the rest are herbs). It's intended to go over pasta. The shrimp package tells you to cook a half pound of pasta, split it onto 2 plates, then take this whole recipe and divide it in 2. Only, it's way too much food for 2 people, and I sometimes skip the pasta altogether.

Karen's Company Eggs 1/20th of pan

This is not my recipe, but she doesn't mind if I share it. Very simple & taste, high in sodium, though.
