Recipezaar: Delicious Microwave Brownies

I was craving chocolate and these were super fast to make and tasted delicious. I used 2/3 c sugar when I made these and it wasn't quite sweet enough. If you want to cut down on sugar, I recommend no more than 1/4 c. I also recommend using pure vanilla extract as opposed to imitation. The nutritional info doesn't include the nuts. Please note that size of brownies is approximate. The pan I used wasn't quite 8-inches, but the nutritional info is calculated for 9 brownies.

Recipezaar: Coconut Fruit Dip

You can probably make this with fat-free cream cheese, although it may have a different consistency. The orignial recipe used 12 oz cream cheese and 1 can cream of coconut. I replaced the cream of coconut with the sweetened condensed milk and the coconut extract. You may also be able to get away with not adding the powdered sugar. Adjust it to your taste!

Recipezaar: Chocolate Orange Fruit Dip

If you like chocolate oranges, you'll love this! The nutrition info is calculated using the light hot fudge sauce. If you use the sugar free, it won't change the calories, only the sugar.

Apple Crisp

If using sweeter apples, you could probably cut the sugar back by 1 tbsp. I used tart apples, so I used more sugar. I could still taste the "tart" in the apples.

Crockpot Turkey Lasagna

I love this lasagna, it's so easy to make and better for you than the original. I just let someone outside my family try it this weekend, and they thought it was great. Try with my herbed monkey bread. Both recipes can be put together the night before. Note: Parmesan cheese is not included in nutritional calculation.

Cranberry Salsa

Try with Turkey Quesadillas

Turkey Quesadillas

I made this to use up left over turkey. You can substitute low-fat or fat-free mozzerella. Try with my cranberry salsa.

Oatmeal Breakfast Bar

Nutritional Info calculated on 1/2 c granulated sugar + 1 Tbsp molasses and 2/3 cup 100% fruit spread

Quick General Tso's Chicken

Adapted from Iron Chef General Tso's recipe


Splenda can be substituted for the sugar.

Fat Free Raspberry Trifle

I made this for my book club meeting and it got rave reviews. You can't even tell it's fat free! This can be prepared the night before and still taste great.

Fat Free Dumplings

Try these with my chicken and biscuits recipe. The broth is not included in the nutritional info since you don't actually eat it. I used 1/2 the amount of bouillon than the container called for.

Easy Chicken and Biscuits

Just the recipe for the chicken. Really easy and reheats great. Freeze leftovers! My chicken bouillon calls for 2 tsp. per 1 cup water, but use whatever yours calls for to make a broth. If gravy isn't thick enough, add 3 Tbsp cornstarch dissolved in 1/4 cup water, before adding chicken. Check out my dumpling recipe to go with it. Both combined it makes it very filling.
