Up your rice game for full flavor on a tiny budget! I replaced pomegranate with raisin and peanut with almonds for this version, experimenting with the sweet and crunchy elements.
Seasoned corn as made by a guy named Nick!

This is an older Southeast US recipe revamped to be a bit healthier. The original uses butter and sugar as well as peaches canned in syrup and white flour in addition to being doubled in size. I've also heard it called cuppa cobbler.
I found myself with a mealy apple, both overripe plums and plums picked too early, as well as an excess of mint and hot peppers. Sauce and soups are a great way to reduce food waste for fruits and vegetables no longer up to snuff.
Recipe for two, but can be doubled; one serving is about 1/3 of the recommended protein intake, even though this is vegetarian
I made my first on 10/7/11, and we've made four so far in the first half of 2013. An excellent church/picnic/special occasion decadence recipe.

like the Blue Diamond 100cal packs... but cheaper. Super easy! Nutritionally comparable to the commercial packs except WAY LESS SALT and slightly higher fiber and protein, not terribly significant.
Wraps, pitas, and 'flats' have about the same calories as low cal bread averaging 100cal/sandwich. The least caloric is a small (6") corn tortilla at 80cal. No wrapping happening there. 10" circles are wrappable, but 12" circles (burrito size) are easier. This makeover subs nori, which is the outside of sushi, or dried seaweed.
Pictured with celery boats of chicken salad made with chicken breast, nonfat yogurt, and studded with apples/celery for a total of: 143cal 14carb 2 fat 20pro. That's a heck of a snack, ladies and gentlemen!
Low cal, filling, high protein, grab'n'go breakfast
Certainly the one to go to for volume!
The term "Nabs," primarily used in Southeastern US, is derived from the word Nabisco. Packages of six cracker/peanut butter sandwiches are now marketed under the brands Lance and Keebler primarily.

America's Test Kitchen "Everyone's Favorite Cake"
Adapted to be vegan from Cook's Illustrated's http://www.cooksillustrated.com/recipes/de
tail.asp?docid=27401. Their recipe is revolutionary in that it puts the broccoli front and center with the cheese only as a compliment.
ALLRECIPES - This is usually served with injera, a flat pancake like bread. If you can't find that you could serve this with rice or pita bread.

My mother's recipe with wheat flour
Trying to use up our jack-o-lantern...
I used pumpkin puree from our jack-o-lantern instead of part of the flour, and I was FLOORED at the difference it makes calorically!
My mother got us a KitchenAid Stand Mixer for Christmas, and this recipe came with it.

Gumbo z’herbes, a smothered greens dish, is traditionally served on Good Friday during Lent. It’s a great way to use up vegetable greens such as beet or carrot tops, though feel free to experiment with different combinations—original versions contained seven different cooking greens for good luck. The roux base adds so much depth, you won’t miss the meat. In fact, this gumbo was the most popular among our kitchen staff, beating out shrimp and tasso and chicken and andouille versions.
Wonton Wrappers are plain AWESOME!
Inexpensive and convenient wonton wrappers replace the calorie-laden pie crust
Nothing finishes the day like the relaxing treat of some fine herbal tea and a cookie.
