Recipes I've Shared:

Spice "Fudge"

Healthy Treat that feels like cheating and so isn't!

Hungry Girl Spaghetti Best-ern

From the Hungry Girl website:

Just like Lady and the Tramp! Well, almost. You can't really do the noodle trick with spaghetti squash... but do you really need to mimic cartoon dogs on a date? Exactly. And you definitely don't need to consume hundreds of extra carby calories when a spaghetti craving hits.

Krab and Veggie Stuffed Mushrooms

Created this recipe to try and use up items in the fridge. I did not anticipate my 10 year old daughter would even try it, but she loved it! Nutritional info is based on 2 per serving.

Spicy Chicken & Veggie Soup

This will cure a cold! (not really, but it sure makes you feel better!) Not only is the chicken broth delicious, the red peppers add just enough heat to completely clear any stuffy head. 12 two cup servings

Cool Chicken Salad

Low calorie chicken salad. Works great in lettuce wraps! Nutrition calculated on 8 half cup servings.

Peanut Butter Cookies

Not your momma's peanut butter cookies - but a substitute when you have a craving and need it to fit in your diet. 1 cookie per serving.

Jello Jigglers

This is the Jello Brand recipe. Sweet treats - low fat and low calorie. Empty, but fun! Note - this makes 12 servings, but you could eat the entire pan and only add 60 calories to your diet!

Lyn's Good for you Cereal Bars

Entered this to log the nutritional value, but after I saw it, I decided to share. Just threw some things together as a spin off of rice krispie squares. Turned out pretty good! I think I could have left out the marshmallow creme and they would have been fine.

Lyn's Luau Chicken Salad

Made this for a luau potluck at work and it all disappeared! Calculated at 10 servings which is an estimate using 1/2 cup portions.

Chocolate Puff Bars

Just trying to find a quick chocolate snack to indulge in without breaking the entire nutrition bank!

Butternut Squash w/Pineapple Topping

Makes 12 one half cup servings. A souffle like side dish perfect for the holidays or any time!

Chopped Salad

A classic chopped salad with a simple dressing that can be made as light or heavy as you like. These measurements make 10 one cup servings.

Turkey and Pumpkin Skillet

Don't ask what inspired this dish - truly, I just started adding ingredients and wasn't even sure what I'd have when I was done! Serves 8 - Low Calorie, Low Fat and High Protien

Chicken & Cabbage

I made this in the microwave with leftover chicken to fill veggie tortillas, but delicious alone too. This recipe is for just 2 servings so adjust quantities to make more.

Homemade Veggie Tortillas

Whole wheat tortillas made with veggies. Use any vegetable in the mix. I've also used cooked carrots which are delicious. Makes 20 six inch tortillas.

"Bean" & Cheese Quesadillas

Refried beans made with black beans and lots of veggies

Chicken & Polenta

Quick & healthy home cooked dinner straight from Italy!! : ) If you cook the polenta ahead of time, this is even quicker!

Turcheeple Breakfast Sandwich

Low calorie, healthy way eat breakfast on the go! I make these on the panini grill, but easily made in a skillet or even a toaster oven!

Turkey, Bean & Cheese Enchiladas

Serves 6. Similar to many of the ground turkey enchiladas, but I used low cal corn tortillas and added beans to the filling. Even my picky teens liked it! (The nutritional info shows 6 corn tortillas, but I used 12 small, 25 calorie each.)

Vegetable Pie with Cabbage Crust

Serves 12 as a side. Cut into larger slices for a main dish. Would probably be just as good with varied combinations of vegetables.

French Toast Waffles

Waffles from a french toast recipe - an idea my 8 year old dreamed up and works like a charm! This recipe makes 6 waffles. Nutrition calculated on one waffle each. Combined with yogurt or fruit this makes a delicious breakfast!

Chicken Burgers with a Bite!

Generous sized chicken burgers with just enough jalapeno to give it a flavorful bite. Includes the healthy additions of wheat bran and zucchini which keeps it moist.

Wheat and Oats Pancakes - 2 per serving

Pancakes made with wheat germ and bran for a high protien kick to start your day off!

Turkey Burgers (burger only)

Just enough chili sauce to give this healthy burger a nice bite.

Homemade Peanut Cashew Butter - 1 tsp servings

Making homemade peanut butter was fun for my daughter and I and is a healthy alternative to peanut butter with sugar and preservatives. Most measurements indicate a tablespoon as the serving size. I limit myself to a tsp so I can enjoy it more often and it doesn't throw my whole day off.

Hot Spinach Dip

My son made this appetizer for Mother's Day. I entered it to figure out how much I would pay for indulging in this rich treat. I was surprised to find out that a 1/4 cup serving was not as bad as I thought! Use nonfat ingredients and this would be a pretty darn healthy appetizer!

100 Calorie Cheesecake

This is not as dense as cheesecake, but has a close flavor to the dessert that is normally off limits. Takes about 20 minutes to prepare and 30 - 60 minutes to cool and set. Enjoy!
