Slow Cooker Cider Stew

This reminds me of a stovetop stew my mom made when I was a kid.

Mexican beef and rice

Inspired by one of my favorite recipes at Green Lite Bites (, I went with beef and rice instead of chicken and noodles.

Marinated Steak

I was trying to think of a marinade for the steak I wanted to cook on Memorial Day, and this is what I came up with. I thought, "If Coke is a good enough marinade for the Outback, it's good enough for me!" And it turned out well enough that I thought I'd share it here.

Portabella tuna melt

I saw a recipe similar to this on the show "Cooki Yourself Thin" and decided to try something like it with what I had on hand. It turned out pretty well.

Roasted chickpeas

From a recipe I found here on SP, but used less oil and made more servings, so needed to recalculate the NI.

Zucchini Fries

These are delicious.

Meatball sub

Thought this was a nice alternative to the Subway meatball sub ... though it doesn't seem to come in that low in Points.

Onion Rings

Craving Burger King onion rings? These are a fair substitute. Be careful not to burn them, though.

Very Good (1 rating)

Inspired by a recipe I saw in a Biggest Loser booklet, and one on Green Lite Bites

Roni's Yelatin

Or, as I like to call it, Jell-Yo. Delicious!

Mom's Butter Cookies

Not low-fat or low-cal, but they're so good — and they're a Christmas tradition in my family. You're either a butter cookie person or a sugar cookie person ... we go for the butter cookies (just like Kelly Ripa. Mom called me one year near Christmas, all excited that Kelly used "her" butter cookie recipe.)

Stovetop Tuna Casserole

I was craving some comfort food, and this seemed to fill the bill. It's quick, easy and not too high in calories or fat.

Mom's Tuna Casserole Made Healthier

This was a favorite growing up, and I've been wanting to eat it again.

Italian zucchini bake

I took another recipe I found here and ran with it to make it my own. I think it's a fantastic substitute when you're craving pizza or pasta.

Incredible! (1 rating)
Peach Crisp

Had some peaches sitting around the kitchen, waiting to be used.

Beef Stroganoff

This is a leftover from my low-carb days, made a little lighter by use of light sour cream and fat-free Miracle Whip.
