Recipes I've Shared:

Berry Morning Juicy

I like to make this in the morning when I'm rushing for breakfast. Fills me up and get's my fruit servings started for the day. I switch the berries around depending on my mood - they are all good.

Melissa's Colorado Gumbo

I work with some people from the south and made them my gumbo. They said if they didn't know better they would think I was from the south!! What a compliment! I use a lowfat precooked sausage, but I could not find it in the ingredients or online so the numbers are a little off.

Brats in a Blanket

I saw something similar to this on tv and it looked awesome. They are really easy to make, taste good, and very kid friendly.

Chicken Dumpling Veggie Soup

This is a very filling soup that even the kids love. It's a great way to sneak in some veggies.

Stuffed Jalapeno Peppers

Anytime I am invited to a get-together people ask if I can bring my jalepeno's. They always disappear within minutes, and people beg for the recipe. They are always shocked at how simple it is.

Crispy Hot Wings

My family and I love going to Buffalo Wild Wings for dinner. I came up with these at home, and my family would rather stay home for wings now.

Very Good (1 rating)

You can use shredded beef, pork or chicken to make this taquitos. Much healthier then the frozen variaty that you microwave.
I made this recipe for one taquito so that is what the nutrition is for. You can make as many as you want at one time for a great dinner or appetizer.

Boneless Sweet BBQ Wings: SparkRecipes Un-Chained Recipe Contest Finalist

I love Wendy's Honey BBQ Wings, but at 580 calories I can't even get fries or a frosty to go with them. I came up with this to satisfy my craving, and still be able to enjoy a side.

Unchained Recipe Contest - Bacon Cheeseburger

My family loves going to Red Robin for burgers. I love the Bacon Cheeseburger - but I can't imagine what the calories/fat are in it. My husband and I came up with these burgers, and our son's named them the "Ultimate Goodness Burger" I can't figure out why the sodium in so high. I don't think there is that much sodium in this.

Red Carrot Soup

I got this recipe from Gourmet Magazine and tweaked it a bit. I was given a bunch of fresh carrots/beets and this was great to use them up.

Pasta Sauce

Quick, healthy and much better than any jarred sauce

Fruit Salad Surprise

I love this easy fruit salad. It is a great breakfast/snack. People always rave, and want the recipe. When they find out how simple it is they are shocked.

Melissa's Fruit Salad

This fruit salad is great! I make a batch on Sunday evening for breakfast/snacks for the week. Goes great with granola.

Easy French Onion Dip From Scratch

I saw this recipe on 30 Minute Meals and changed the ingredient's to low fat.

Banana Bars

My friend gave me this quick and easy recipe and I love it!

Easy Chile Rellenos

I love crunchy rellenos, and found this easy way to make them nice and crispy.
I used jalapeno pepper's to enter the recipe, but I really like using poblano or anaheim peppers the most.

Taco Salad

This is an easy quick dinner that the kids love. It tastes even better as leftover's.
Great dish to take to a potluck.

Messy Melissa's

These are very quick and easy to make. They go great with some home made fries.

Grilled Salad

This is a great way to eat a salad if your tired of cold lettuce. You can top with your favorite dressing, but I think it is good without dressing.

Hoe Mush Cakes

These are a traditional Native American cake. They are great for breakfast with syrup or as a side dish topped with cheese for dinner.

Banana Smoothie

Very quick and easy breakfast food.

Crock Pot Lasagne

I came up with this because I didn't want to make my house really hot from the oven and I didn't have any lasagne noodles.

Best Pork Green Chili

This is the easiest and best recipe for homemade pork green chili

Sausage Alfredo with Zucchini

My family loves this Italian dish. You can also substitute the sausage with cooked chicken.

Mexican rice with black beans

You can also use instant rice for a quick side dish.

Peachy Salsa Chicken

The sweet and spicy mix is great! This goes good with some mexican rice and black beans.

Chunky Potato, Cauliflour & Ham Soup

I use this soup to sneak cauliflour to my family. They love it. It's very thick and hearty. Perfect for cold days, and goes good with a salad for a light summer meal.

BBQ Chicken Wraps

My hubby loves these wraps. Sometimes I make this recipe on buns for a sandwhich instead.
