Steph 2003's 3-ingredient lowfat cheese ball

Need something quick and lowfat for a party? Try this! My mother in law made it for Christmas and it was a huge hit!

Steph2003's Southern Chili

Chili is a great cold weather dish, tasty and loaded with protein! I've made this recipe for years, and everyone that trys it loves it. The canned mushrooms really add something to it, people start adding them to their own recipe's after they try them in mine!

Steph2003's Crockpot Ham & Bean Soup

I had lots of leftover ham and was looking for a recipe to use. I found one here and modified it.

Campbell's Spicy Chicken Noodle Soup

I happened to be running low on cream of chicken soup so I used 1 can of pepper jack cheese soup instead. The results were yummy, and only 123 calories per cup!

Steph2003's Sausage Balls

Perfect for parties, pot luck, and just a quick snack! 3 ingredients, and then you bake, you can't get any easier than that!

Steph2003's Chicken & Dumplings

I LOVE chicken & dumplings so when I found this I added my own spin to it and lowered the fat and calories. This is the best chicken and dumplings I've ever had which is amazing since I'm never satisfied with my cooking! You can have a full cup of this hearty comfort food for only 284 calories and 3.8 grams of fat! The sodium could be reduced if homemade biscuits are used instead of the canned biscuits, but if sodium isn't a problem this is a very fast and easy way to make chicken & dumplings!

Thinmom5's Easy Crockpot All Occasion Mexican Dip!

One of my spark girls made this on a recent girls weekend. It's fabulous and SO easy! It's great with tortilla chips, in a burrito, with rice, or poured over a hotdog! (No we did not try all those options, but you can just tell... ;) ) This is great for kids, potluck dinners, or super bowl parties, and pretty much any other time in between!

Thinmom5's Easy Crockpot Enchilada Casserole

Like enchiladas but don't have the time to make them? Try this super easy, super yummy recipe that one of my Spark friends made for me!

This recipe is tasty and low calorie! Pair it with a healthified grilled cheese sandwich and you've got an awesome meal!

This is the best salsa I have ever had. Enough said.

Steph2003' Sloppy Joe's

Basic recipe, just to help me track everything.

Steph2003's Crockpot Chicken, Dumplings & Veggies

I love regular chicken & dumplings, but these are fantastic when you want to change them up a bit!

Steph2003's Dinner Rolls

I got this recipe from the newsletter. It's simple, cheap to make, and not bad on calories/fat! Plus, almost everyone keeps the ingredients on hand.

Steph2003's Cracker Barrel Macaroni & Cheese

I got this recipe from and it's supposed to be Cracker Barrel's Macroni & Cheese, not sure about that, but it sure is good! Not what you'd call low fat though. I added this for my own tracking, and I thought I'd share it.

Travis07's Pumpkin Cookie Frosting

This goes with the pumpkin cookie recipe that Deloris posted.

TRAVIS07's Pumpkin Chip Cookies

Deloris posted this recipe in the cooking team, so I thought I'd go ahead and enter it into the tracker so everyone could have the nutritional info. I did substitute 1 cup of the sugar for Splenda and egg beaters for the 2 eggs. Makes about 5 dozen.

Ammer333's Healthier Tater Tot Casserole

This is the healthier version of Josh's recipe.

Steph2003's Baked Bean Casserole

I found this on and it's a real man/kid pleaser, not to mention it's pretty tasty for us gals too!
Note, this is NOT for low sodium diets!

Steph2003's Cheesecake Fruit Dip

This is a fantastic fruit dip! Whenever I take it anywhere I'm always asked for the recipe!

Steph2003's Heavenly Fruit Salad

This is great for summer get togethers and SUPER easy! I have another recipe on SP called Steph2003's Cheesecake Fruit Dip. I used that recipe, but instead of serving the fruit on the side I mixed it all together. Oh, and I also tried Vanilla pudding this time, but it just depends on what you like.

Steph2003's Potato Soup

Modified from an recipe I found. This soup is wonderful! Perfect for those cold winter nights!

Steph2003's Lighter Ruby Tuesday's Apple Salad

I got this from, and I lightened it up a bit. The restaurant version is my favorite apple salad.

Steph2003's Rotel Chicken Macaroni

I can't take credit for this wonderful recipe, it came from a friend of mine. This is a super easy, great tasting dish, cheesy, spicey, and loaded with chicken YUM! This makes so much, it's 24 servings, using 2, 9x13 pans! Great for batch cooking and freezing!

Steph2003's Chicken Pot Pie

A Hearty Helping of Homemade Chicken Pot Pie! Just cut it into 6 hearty pieces for your meal, or lower the fat/calories by cutting it into 8! FYI for 8 servings there's 401 calories and 17 grams of fat. I serve this with rice as a side, but that's not in the nutritional info. This recipe is not recommended for those on low sodium diets!

Steph2003's Ultimate Carrot Cake (light version)

This recipe came from a co-worker named Deana, the original recipe is the best carrot cake I've ever had, so I decided trying to lighten it up a bit. This makes a 3 layer cake. I have listed the frosting as a separate recipe.

This is for Tracy. I tried lightening it up a bit.

Steph2003's Broccoli & Cheese Casserole

Steph2003's Spicy Crockpot Southern Barbecued Chicken

This is a Spark 'Editor's Choice' recipe that I modified for the crockpot, and shredded to make sandwiches with. It's very good. I like it because it's not a traditional bbq type sauce.

Steph2003's Zucchini, Squash, Eggplant Cassarole

This is a great dish with lots of veggies! Of course you could also use a frozen broccoli, califlower, and carrot mix to change it up a bit!

Very Good (51 ratings)
Steph2003's Eggplant Lasagna

I found this recipe on SP and added my own spin to it. It's very good, and the servings are large!

Steph2003's Ultimate Cream Cheese Frosting

This goes with the ultimate carrot cake.

Steph2003's Garlic Shrimp with Pasta

This came from Sparker TCEODERTH. While visiting her she made this simple yet tasty dish, so I had to make it for myself! No, it's not the lowest in fat/calories, but you have to treat yourself on occasion.

Steph2003's Southern Turnip Greens

Living in the south, and being on SP doesn't mean giving up all my favorite foods.

Steph2003's Red, White & Blue Ambrosia

I found this recipe on, and modified it to make it lower in fat/calories. The origional calorie content was 475 calories per serving! Ouch!

I got tired of listing this separately, so here it is.

Steph2003's Veggie Beef Soup

I got this simple recipe from my MIL and I could eat it several times a week!

Steph2003's Crockpot Chicken & Dressing

This is from another SP Recipe, but I've changed it around a bit to lower the fat/calories/sodium. If you're watching your sodium though it's still on the high side.

Steph2003's Crockpot Beans & Rice

This is just a bunch of things thrown together in the crockpot, for a quick dinner. Eat alone or with tortillas or tortilla chips.

Steph2003's Peach Crisp

Here's a great recipe I found on SP and modified (as usual) to make it lower in fat/cals.

Steph2003's Southern Banana Pudding

This is just a basic banana pudding recipe made with jello, and I substituted animal crackers for the vanilla wafers to save some calories. This makes 6 large servings but it could easily be divided it into 8 servings. For 8 servings it has 176 calories 1.6 grams of fat.

Steph2003's Apple Dumplings

I got this from and modified it. It's excellent, especially if you add a little vanilla ice cream! Peaches are good too! 1 serving is 1 dumpling, but after you taste them you might just want to save up the calories to have two!

Steph2003's Pizza Casserole

I got this recipe from HealthierLynn, but I used ground beef instead of ground turkey, and I added a few things, so here it is with my additions!

Steph2003's Cooked Cabbage

Basic Southern Cabbage YUM!

Steph2003's Moist Mexican Cornbread (Light Version)

This is the same recipe that I posted earlier, only with substitutions to make it lighter. I made it and the taste is exactly the same as the more fattening version.

Steph2003's Green Bean Casserole

Super Simple Side Dish, and if you're a fan of green beans, you'll love it!

Steph2003's Giblet Gravy

This goes with Steph2003's Southern Cornbread Dressing. I don't actually put giblets in it.

Steph2003's Southern Cornbread Dressing

There are so many ways to make dressing, so I have combined several of the recipes that I have and come up with this one. Instead of using the canned chicken broth you can use homemade if you're making a chicken to go with this, and you can also add the shredded cooked chicken to the stuffing before baking.

Steph2003's Cake Mix Pumpkin Cookies

These cookies are super easy and so YUMMY! With only 65 calories and 2 grams of fat each they're great to take along to parties!

Steph2003's Zucchini Cassarole

I found this recipe and lowered the fat/calories. 1 Cup Egg Beaters could be used to lower the cholesterol, but it only lowers the calories by about 10 per serving.

Steph2003's Crockpot Oatmeal

I found this recipe on SP, modified it, and love it! It's like apple pie for breakfast!

Steph2003's Everything Cookies

I found this on the SP message boards, and modified it. I plan to make it for Christmas, but I decided to share it before then! I'm sure there are lots of people looking for lower calorie cookie recipes!

Steph2003's Mashed Potatoes

Basic Mashed Potatoes, I just added them for my tracking, and thought I might as well share the recipe.

Steph2003's Breakfast Cassarole

I found this recipe here on SP, and modified it for my use. It's so good I thought I'd share it!

As usual I found this recipe on SP, and changed it around to make it my own.

ThinMom5's Super Easy Lasanga

I got this from an SP friend, but it wasn't posted in the SP recipe's, so I'm putting it in for my own tracking. It's super easy, and low in calories!
