Recipes I've Shared:

Sherry's Italian Sausage & Veggie Pasta

This was a 'clean out the fridge' recipe & my family loved it.

Strawberry-Raspberry Crisp in a Jar

This is another wonderful dessert in a jar! You will need 2 pint-sized, wide-mouth (16oz) Mason jars for this recipe. You can also adjust the recipe to fill 4 (8oz) jars. The original recipe called for strawberries & blueberries, but I used the raspberries & strawberries I had on hand and it turned out great! This makes a great holiday gift.

Turtle Cheesecake in a Jar

These are really decadent desserts...and great gifts! Does take some time to prepare. They require 3 (16oz), wide-mouth, pint Mason jars to hold this recipe. The original recipe was for 12 (4oz) wide-mouth jars, but this recipe is too labor-intensive to fix that many jars...PLUS those tiny jars don't hold enough! lol

Pumpkin Cake in a Jar

This cake in a Mason jar is the best I have tasted! If any of them last, they will make a unique gift for those you don't know what to get or those who have 'everything'! Hard to eat just a third of it, though.

Waffle Iron Sugar-Free Brownies

Re-purpose your waffle iron & get even better results with these delicious, sugar-free fudge brownies!

Healthier Pasta and Sauce

This is a great replacement for my unhealthy spaghetti & sauce. This recipe adds more fiber, lots of veggies, and I got to use my 'spiralizer' for the squash!

Low-Carb Belgian Waffles

These waffles were low-fat, low-carb, (& almost sugar-free), and easy & fast to fix! What's not to love?? Plus, they taste great! Just add sugar-free syrup & raspberries or fruit of choice and a low-fat breakfast meat or egg of choice for a wonderful, filling breakfast.

Lower-fat Omelette

This is similar to my favorite Denver Omelette, but without the meat. I usually have this with a slice of low-sodium bacon or lower-fat turkey breakfast sausage.

Cheddar Sausage Rolls

These are like the Kolaches I used to get at Krispy Kreme, but way lower in calories & better tasting (these have cheddar!).

Cranberry-Cream Cheese Salad

I have brought this salad to Thanksgiving dinner for many years and have always received rave reviews (and no leftovers). I have learned to double the recipe for my family. Hope you enjoy as much as we do!

Pumpkin Pie in a Mug

This is a different, healthier alternative to 'pigging out' on pumpkin pie over the holidays.

Coconut-Cranberry Breakfast Quinoa

This is a very good breakfast alternative to oatmeal or dried cereals...and also has fruit and extra fiber with flaxseed meal & chia seeds.

One-serving Omelette

This low-fat, low-carb recipe can be either fixed in a microwave-safe mug or in one cup of an electric pie/cake maker appliance (Cook's Essential Pie/Cake Maker, as an example). It is a wonderful breakfast or snack. I used previously cooked fat-free hashbrowns ( a potato shredded & cooked in my waffle iron) & part of the leftover bacon from a previous breakfast to fix this recipe.

Hashbrowns in Waffle Iron

These hashbrowns are fat-free & delicious!

3-Bean Salad

Very versatile and tasty recipe. The type of beans can be changed (have used navy, pinto, & chili beans), as well as the seasonings to suit your taste. Keeps well in fridge for over a week. Easy, delicious way to get your extra fiber & veggies.

13-Bean Soup w/Barley & Quinoa

The boxed soup mix consists of several types of beans, peas, & lentils & comes with a seasoning packet that had no list of seasonings. I used Herbs de Provence, basil, a dash of tobasco sauce & Mrs. Dash original seasoning. If you can't find the box mix, you could use a bag of mixed beans that equals about 12 servings & add your own seasonings.

Crockpot Lentils & Turkey Sausage

This recipe is so good that you can't even tell how really good for you it is!

Summer Oatmeal w/Yogurt & 1% milk

Used both yogurt & 1% milk to moisten these oats. Can add more spices (nutmeg, allspice, etc) to liven this up even more.

Sherry's Tuna Salad

Great as a salad topper with some added grape tomatoes or as a tuna sandwich. When making a sandwich, I put it on Nature's Own Multi-grain Sandwich Rounds (which are NOT included in Nutrition totals) .

Better for You Pasta Salad

This salad has all the 'good for you' veggies, 3 kinds of beans for fiber, and it tastes great! You can add whatever other veggies you have on hand and adjust salad dressing & seasonings accordingly.
