Recipes I've Shared:

creamy bean and corn soup

This might be the easiest recipe EVER to make. It's warm, filling, very low fat, and has a little kick! I love it!

chicken enchiladas

My basic chicken enchilada recipe

lima bean crockpot casserole

Healthy and full of flavor!

kale salad

Super fresh and crunchy kale salad. Adjust other ingredients to your taste.
I made this recipe for a 1 cup serving, but obviously it's easy to make more!

roasted potatoes

Yummy roasted potatoes. Super simple.

another crockpot mexi-chicken

Another great combo of stuff to throw in a crockpot!

Weight Watchers Lentil Rice side dish

This is a dish taken from the Weight Watchers Healthy Living Basics cookbook - and I added the dates. It's a fairly simple, hearty side dish.

veggie soup

Another derivation of the weight watchers 0 point veggie soup - I made it with whatever veggies I had leftover!

Skillet mac and cheese - adapted from WW recipe

If you use reduced fat cheese instead of regular, you've got yourself a weight watchers recipe. I didn't have any, so here's my higher fat version.

steel cut oat n apple crockpot breakfast

It's still in the crockpot, but dannng it smells good. I combined a few different recipes to fit the ingredients I had. Very sweet!

Incredible! (2 ratings)
Falafel - Hungry Girl Style (with added oil)

This is my adaptation of the Hungry Girl Falafel - I had way too many garbanzo beans, didn't have any cooking spray, and didn't feel like measuring!!! ;) It still tastes good!

Parmesan Lemon Asparagus

Really quick and easy side dish - SO GOOD.

Garlic Thyme Carrots

Colorful and wonderful vegetarian side dish. Brings out the sweet in the carrots.

Smells-like-Potroast Crockpot Stew

I love my crockpot! I had frozen steak, raw barley, and a bunch of veggies left over from a party! Threw them all in the crockpot, and the next morning the whole house smelled like potroast!

Cornmeal Chicken Strips with mango salsa

This is the best quick meal ever! You get protein AND fruit, all in one dish! yum!

I'm broke Chicken Lentil Mushroom Stew

I love when I throw things in the crockpot and they actually taste good! That's where this one came from - protein rich, filling stew with very little calories!

szechuan peanut noodles

Based on Weight Watchers recipe - but I used regular peanut butter instead of reduced fat, which would bring down the calories a lot!

random banana muffins

I had a bunch of bananas that were going to go bad so I wanted to make something with them! They're a little thick, but taste soooo good.

Very Good (3 ratings)
I'm broke breakfast

Again, in the spirit of trying to use everything in my fridge before going is what turned out to be a YUMMY breakfast scramble!

Creamy tomatoey Noodley dinner

One of the fun parts of being broke is combining things I have in the cupboard because I don't want to go grocery shopping! This particular concoction turned out YUMMY! It's noodles, meat, sauce and veggies! Tastes great!

sweet potato fries

wanted fries without the grossness! sweet, salty, bbq-y.. yummy

Green bean spaghetti sauce

Using what I have in the freezer!

I'm Broke Pasta Lunch

I am learning how to combine random ingredients in the cupboard to make a meal! Woohoo.

Parkins Cake

Traditional English cake

Cranberry Walnut Chicken Sauce

Being half Iranian, I grew up with a dish called "Fesenjoon" - it's usually made with ground up walnuts, pomegranate and chicken. This recipe is the Americanized version - using canned cranberry sauce instead of pomegranate to make it that much easier (and cheaper!) It's great over basmati rice - or you could leave the chicken out of the recipe to make a yummy vegetarian dish!

Roya's Random taco soup

I made this soup throwing random things I had in the pantry and fridge into it! It's yummy!

Alternative Amish Friendship Bread

Using a bread starter, this is the no-oil, no-sugar version of Amish Friendship Bread!

HG pumpkin spice muffins

Hungry Recipe!!! Soooo yummy, perfect for fall and winter months. Makes the whole house smell good too.

Hungry Girl Wonton Soup

From a recent Hungry Girl Email, this soup is deeelicious and only 2 points per serving!

Weight Watchers 0 point Veggie Soup

Somewhere along the way I stopped following their recipe exactly, but it's still fantastic and yummy!
