Recipes I've Shared:

Spinach Antipasto Salad

A traditional antipasto salad bulked up with spinach.

Jalapeno Cheese Egg Muffins (Little Fritatas)

This is the first of a series of 100 calorie breakfast foods that I will be adding. I can mix and match two or three different recipes to add variety to my breakfasts and still be around 300 to 400 calories.

Pecan Crusted Tillapia Fish Cakes

Great with yogurt tartar sauce.

Turkey Sub Salad

Everything that I love on my foot long sub, minus the bread and cheese.

Healthy Banana Pancakes

This is not my recipe-

Mexican Cesar Salad

Great with grilled chicken.

Cookies and Cream Green Smoothie

Adapted from "Mock Wendy's Frosty" recipe.

Polish Potato Cheddar Soup

Adapted from (The picture was taken from the websight also)-

Ranch Dressing (2 tbsp. Serving)

This is the best ranch dressing that I have ever made. I have searched high and low for a recipe that I like. I actually LOVE this, and it's much healthier then the store bought mixes, or, heaven forbid, bottled dressing. Sometimes I like it less sweet, so I just leave out the agave nectar, and whatever you do, make sure the garlic is raw and fresh. This is super important!

Potato Wedges

Baked not fried!

Strawberry Spinach Smoothie with skim milk

Very high in vitamins A & C and a good source of calcium, iron and fiber.

Diane's Nachos

Easy to make, and a family favorite, but very high in fat and calories.

50/50 Chocolate Chip Cookies

Half traditional ingredients, like; white flour, butter and brown sugar, and half healthy ingredients like stevia, ground nuts and oat flour.

Chicken Pizza

Chicken takes the place of the bread and cheese. Top with your favorite pizza toppings. You can also make home made Italian chicken sausage to top the "pizza".

Baked Apples

Top pancakes, or top with granola and nuts, or even fill a tiny pie :)
Don't forget to eat those skins!

Pancakes Gluten-free

They taste more like French toast then pancakes, but who doesn't like French toast?

Shrimp Civiche Salad

Good with "Oat and Brown Rice Lavish Bread" or corn tortillas.

Chocolate Chip Cookies: Gluten-free Mama Hanna's Recipe

They turn out a deep brown color because of all the molasses, but don't you leave it out, because it has a big boost of hard-to-get Potassium, calcium and magnesium.

Mama Hanna's Oat & Brown Rice Lavish Bread

I needed something for guacamole and came up with this recipe.

Cauliflower & Potato Fritter Wraps (4" rounds)

I saw those cauliflower pizza crust recipes and thought to add a shredded potato which made it so yummy, but nothing like pizza crust. I used it as a sandwich and it was a lot of fun. I will be buying a lot more cauliflower from now on.

OMG! Veggie & Chicken Pad Thai

I can't believe this was so good. I wasn't expecting to like it THIS much. I did not miss the pasta at all. Seriously!

Copy Cat "Kashi" Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies

130 calories just like the original!

Barbecued Pollo Asada Super Fries

When I am missing my favorite take-out "Super Fries" from the drive through in San Diego, I make my healthier version with barbecued chicken instead of beef. You can reduce the fat by omitting the avocado.

Pumpkin Seed Crusted Chicken

I thought I would be making this only for myself, but my boys say that they like it as much as fried chicken, so I have to make larger and larger batches.

Grilled Brinned Drumsticks with Sweet/Spicy Citrus Sauce

I was trying to make a copycat version of our favorite fast food chicken. The citrus sauce is a home run, both tasted very good but nothing like the fast food version. The boys asked me to write this one down.

Tuna Sandwich

to make ahead for a sack lunch or pick-nick, add a couple lettuce leaves on the bread to keep it from absorbing too much liquid in the salad. To dress it up a bit add; tomato, pickle and bacon.

Hamburger Salad

Everything I love about a basic hamburger, only in salad form. Just as good as the sandwich in my opinion.

Mama Hanna's Churkey Chili

I have very little money. I am forced to purchase lower priced ground turkey, but they contain way more fat then I want (15%- yikes!) So, I grind my own chicken breast in a food processor and I mix it in to the prepackaged turkey. Voila! 7% meat. I have found that I prefer the flavor in any dish that calls for ground turkey, especially burgers.

Shrimp Burrito

Similar to the shrimp burritos at fish taco stands in my home town in San Diego county, my version is pretty much the same- if not, better.

Mama Hanna's Crunchy Chicken Tacos (Baked Shell)

A little bit of extra labor in cooking the taco shells twice is well worth the effort. The shells that taste just like you fried them. Watch the time though, they overcook easily.

Mama Hanna's Spaghetti Dinner

For a western version, my Mom added 2 tbsp. chili powder and a dash of Cayenne. If I have fresh rosemary and oregano, I would omit the Italian seasoning and add a teaspoon of each instead.

Stove Top Mexican Quiche

I used to love frozen Mexican Quiche. Using a bell pepper ring for the sides and crushed crackers for the base means I don't have to go without the crust.
