Turkey Thai Red Curry

A favorite in our household.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana 'ice cream'

Single serving of soft serve-esque "ice cream" that makes about 1 to 1.5 cups. Prep time includes time in the freezer, however longer time will produce more solid 'ice cream'.

Crock Pot Pork Barbacoa

Crock Pot Pork Barbacoa is flavored with smoked chipotles in adobo, garlic and cilantro, and Mexican spices, resulting in a tender, juicy filling for tacos, burritos, and quesadillas, or a tasty topping for salads and rice bowls!

Chicken in Cream of Mushroom-White Wine Sauce

Ingredients around the house, used before they went bad

Traditional Irish Soda Bread


All recipes for traditional soda bread contain flour, baking soda, sour milk (buttermilk) and salt. That's it!

This was a daily bread that didn't keep long and had to be baked every few days. It was not a festive "cake" and did not contain whisky, candied fruit, caraway seeds, raisins (add raisins and it becomes "spotted dog" not to be confused with the pudding made with suet of the same name), or any other ingredient.

Bisquick Naan

I attempted to simplify the naan recipes I've read online in order to use stuff I had on hand. So, this is NOT an authentic naan recipe. My family still thought it was delish though!

Turkey Breakfast Sausage

Make your own sausage for a healthier alternative to prepared, store bought sausage! I cut out most of the salt called for in this recipe for a low-sodium alternative. If you don't have an hour to let the spices meld, that's ok. Let them meld for as long as possible before cooking. They're tasty either way. Enjoy!

Spiced Rum Pecan Pie

More pecans, less gel. Mmmmm!!

Bean and Baby Corn Mix

Canned beans and baby corn with italian dressing. 1 cup = a serving.

Easy Meat Pie

Canned goods and browned ground beef added to a pie crust, covered with another crust. Bake for 30 min at 350!

Half Tuna Sandwich w/Swiss Homemade

Tuna fish salad made with Kraft Olive Oil mayo (less fat) and sweet pickle relish on one slice of whole wheat bread with half a slice of swiss cheese.

GH Minestrone Soup

Good Housekeeping Soup Diet, the minestrone recipe. This calls for 2 cups of the Good Housekeeping diet soup base, which I have as a shared recipe. It is best made up ahead of time as the soup base recipe makes 28 cups at one time. Once I make the soup base, I separate it into freezer bags by 2 c and 4 c quantities.

Chicken Stir Fry

Very easy when using prepackaged fresh veggies!

GH Shrimp Gumbo

Another soup to add to the Good Housekeeping Soup Diet variety

Mexican Rice with Beans and Corn

Quick and easy Mexican Rice. Not authentic, but tasty nonetheless. True mexican rice is long grain white rice toasted in oil before adding the liquid. I wanted to cut the fat out, so I came up with this recipe.

Yummy Turkey Sandwich

Deli sliced turkey with provolone cheese, light mayo, and brown mustard on whole wheat.

Mexican Chicken Soup

Part of the Good Housekeeping Amazing Soup recipes.
