Easter hard boiled egg sandwich

Easy hard boiled egg

Noodle, ham, and egg casserole

A great way to use leftover ham!


An easy recipe. Have breakfast for dinner! Serve with fresh strawberries

Tex Mex Lasagna

This recipe is tasty and healthy. Use whole wheat noodles as an alternative. The recipe is a little bland-cumin, hot pepper, taco seasoning, or black bean dip might be a good addition!

Homemade Pizza Pie

Still high in calories-bread and cheese will do ya-this is a good alternative to store-bought because you can control meats, sauces, add vegetables, and reduce the amount of cheese...

Onion and canadian bacon casserole

This dish has a strong canadian bacon flavor. The egg whites make a nice casserole while controlling for calories

Special K's Chinese Lo Mein Noodles

A quick, tasty, vegetable-rich, relatively low-cal dish. Eat on the side or as a meal in itself!

Spinach Puffs

A great appetizer for an evening in

Lithuanian Spaghetti with a Kick!

We got this recipe from an exchange student. In Lithuania it is common to use catsup and salsa as toppings for pasta.

Troy's Awesome Pizza Sandwich

My kids came up with this recipe. We did not have pizza sauce on hand, and they did not want to use ketchup, so what we ended up with was olive oil and basil as a base.

Quick, delicious, and under 300 calories (144 calories each muffin half)! You'll have to tell your kids, "only 1 because 2 defeats the purpose." They'll love it because they can make it themselves or FOR YOU!

Family Favorite Fried Rice

Fried rice is a meal in itself!

Mix 1/2 brown rice, 1/2 white rice for an even healthier recipe!

This salad has everything you need! Top with a small serving of your favorite dressing, add some string cheese and a roll on the side, and you've got all food groups covered!

Veggie Wrap

Add whatever vegetables are in season. Be sure you have a protein source if this is all you eat.

Add 1 tbs mustard or 1 tbs low-cal italian dressing (not in calorie count)

Maki Sushi Roll with Tuna, Egg, and Vegetables

This recipe is for roll sushi that is not just California Roll.

Homemade Sweet & Sour Chicken

Make your own breading and use boneless skinless chicken breasts. Add green pepper and onion for an authentic American-Chinese dish!

Fruit Smoothies

This is a quick energy burst drink. Because you're using fresh fruit, it will be pulpy and chunky with fruit bits!

Low fat chicken tortilla soup

This soup is different from other soups here. I eliminated pinto beans and added chicken chunks instead. Top with plain yogurt and add a dash of lime juice for a bit more flair!

Cheesy Rigatoni with Beef

This recipe is easy to make. Velveeta and noodles. A kid favorite! It doesn't have milk or butter!

Gummy Spaghetti

My mother-in-law's famous recipe made with carb-friendly and fat-friendly ingredients.
