Becky's Salad Dressing

My Swiss-American sister-in-law always has fresh dressing to go on her yummy salads...she usually makes this with EVO and apple cider vinegar, but I tweeked it a tad to use up ingredients I had on hand.

Fried Okra Gluten Free

Yummy substitute for traditional southern fried okra

Kashi Mushroom Trio and Spinach Pizza dressed up

Just what I do to spruce up a pizza for supper!

Homemade Vegetable Soup with Chicken

I accidentally grabbed the beef broth instead of the chicken broth when I made this today...chicken broth has a little less protein in it. I also used a whole rotisserie chicken, but didn't know what the weight was, so I just had to guess (I used 4 c pulled from the chicken). I also had 2 c black bean "broth" I used, but I didn't know how to calculate that into the ingredients list, so I just added another 2 c water.

Air popped popcorn with coconut oil

Love my air popped popcorn...I fix up a batch and put the 2c servings right away into sandwich bags, so I don't eat it all at one sitting!

Strawberry Ice Cream with Coconut Cream

A work in progress but still delicious! I have a vegan grandson, so I can change up this recipe for him!

No added sugar Pistachio Ice Cream with Coconut Milk

This is a take off on a Paula Deen recipe where pudding mix is used to help the ice "cream" be smoother...It's sooo yummy!

Ghirardelli Pumpkin Brownies

Simple, 2 ingredient brownies that are yummy!

Yogurt Pound Cake

Yummy lower fat pound cake. I make it in 3 9in x 5in loafs pans to make a smaller serving.

no added sugar No Bake Energy Bites

I adapted the recipe "No Bake Energy Bites" for a friend who is not eating added sugar due to fighting cancer...This "treat" is not sweet, but is still a treat for her :) I even enjoy them after a working out!

Pan Fried Okra

The trick is to use a well seasoned iron skillet...

No Bake Energy Bites

This recipe was circulating on Facebook...don't know who to give credit for this, but they're yummy! I switched out 1/3c honey and used 1/4 c maple syrup. I bet they'll be great on hikes, though they are a little sticky :)-

Katie's original Oatmeal Fruit Crisp

I used to make this with butter, now I use coconut well w/ any fruit and ice cream on top :)-

Sloppy Joes - Adapted from Pioneer Woman

I cut out the sugar, decreased the sodium and didn't add the tomato paste and hot seasonings to come up with this tasty recipe.

Glaze for Strawberry or any Fruit Pie

This recipe make enough glaze for 4 c fruit. Change the flavor of the Jello to match your fruit, such as Grape for Blueberry, peach for peach, etc.

Individual Lemonade Cheesecakes

This is made from a recipe my mother used to make with a 6 oz can of lemonade concentrate, which has tooo many calories :) Using 1 pkg of Crystal Light (that makes 2 qt of lemonade) is a ok compromise for me, although I'd like to get away from the aspartame. Trader Joe's makes one, but I don't have a TJ close to me...Baking them in canning jars came from a Pinterest recipe found at "The Italian Dish" blog. Enjoy! 10 gms of protein and 6 WWP per serving!

Vegan Oatmeal Cookies

No added sugar, oil, or egg
Copied from Cheryl-Ann Porter on Facebook

Potato Salad for large group

I make this salad w/ half the salad dressing when making for more diet conscious folks. I often add diced onion, but it's not included in this recipe.

Almond Milk/Almond Butter/Banana/Chocolate Milkshake

I mix this up and put it in a thermos to drink after I swim! A good reward after a hard workout!

Katie's Yummy Oatmeal Cookies

This is a yummy variation I made years ago from a recipe off a box of a Kroger brand of oatmeal! These are not low calorie, but I make them for special occasions :)-

Katie's Strawberry Glaze Pie

This pie has a yummy cheesecake-like filling...a real hit with family and friends!

Incredible! (1 rating)
Jalapeno Cornbread made w/ Jiffy Cornbread Mix

The original recipe called for adding 1/4 c onion...but I like these better without adding onion! The original recipe was also doubled and baked in a 9x13" pan for 30 min. I adapted this from a recipe I found at

Yummy Baked Tilapia

I grabbed Hungry Girl's idea to use ground Fiber One to coat food, but halfed the coating mixture w/ ground Trader Joe's granola.

Brazilian Black Beans

This is my quick fix for Brazilian black beans; though not made from scratch, they satisfy my hunger for Brazilian food :) I love making a meal of rice, black beans, and stir fried collards (chove)!

Brazilian Rice

This rice is made a bit different from the way Americans make rice. It turns out fluffy and just right, but it may take some practice as Brazilians typically just go by sight and not by these "exact" measurements when making rice.

Brazilian Chove (Collards, to Americans)

Basically, this is stir-fried collards...Not the usual way we Americans eat collards, but it's a staple in Brazil, eaten with black beans and rice.
