Spicy Thai Slaw

Cole Slaw kicks it up a notch! This zippy slaw is a fun alternative to the usual heavily dressed salad. Adjust the spiciness to your taste by adding more or less chili peppers, and using mild or spicy curry powder.

Rainbow Coleslaw

A colorful, fun twist to coleslaw! Ditch the heavy creamy dressing for a lightly dressed, Asian inspired feast that is as beautiful and colorful as tasty!

Creamy Ginger Vinaigrette

A creamy dressing, low in fat, but with a flavorful kick. One Tablespoon will flavor up your salad nicely without adding a lot of fat

Pumpkin Carrot Bran Muffin

This is the blending of two of my favorite low calorie muffin recipes. I wanted something larger, more substantial, but didn't want to add too many more calories. These muffins are not too sweet, high in fiber, and practically fat free. For those counting WW PointsPlus, they are three WW PointsPlus. If you like a sweeter muffin, you may consider increasing the sugar or adding packets of your favorite sweetener.

Quick & Simple Cinnamon Coffee Cake

A simple and easy coffee cake, its quick to whip up on a weekend morning. Its not fancy, but sometimes that's not what you need!

I often make this for company, mixing the dry ingredients, and the wet in seperate bowls the night before, and mixing the two together in the morning. A nice breakfast without spending all my time slaving away.

Green Enchilada Chicken Soup

This came from my love of green enchiladas and soup. I figured there had to be a way to combine them! Make it a meal: Add one cup cooked rice (brown, maybe) or a cup or corn. Its good topped with cheese and tortilla chips, but none of these options are included in the nutritional information

Easy Asian Flavored Pasta Salad

This is from a weight watchers meeting back in 1996. I make this a lot for lunches with friends. Sometimes I'll substitute shrimp for the chicken. Or I'll add more veggies, such as red bell peppers or snow pea pods (add pea pods just before serving. They lose flavor and color if left long in marinade).

Easy Southwest Vegetable Soup

This is a favorite soup of mine. I make it every week all winter long. You can make it on the stovetop as the directions state, or you can throw all the ingredients into the crock-pot on low for 6-8 hours.

I always rinse all the beans, to reduce the sodium.

Add a little less water, and make it a chili. Try topping it with cheese or tortilla chips (for extra calories). When I bring this to pot-lucks, I always get asked for the recipe.

Fat Free All Bran Blueberry Muffins

This simple, fat-free blueberry muffin is delicious and an easy way to get some fiber. These are not very sweet, so you can decide if you care to increase the sugar. You can use fresh or frozen unsweetened blueberries.

Because of the moisture from the blueberries, they have a short shelf life. Refrigerate or freeze to keep longer.

Smooth Black Bean Soup

Warm and comforting, this simple black bean soup will fill you up. High-protein, high-fiber, low-fat, it fits well into any diet plan
