Recipes I've Shared:

Instant Pot Vegetable Soup

This states that it makes 6 servings, but it was a LOT more than that for us, so I calculated it at about 8 and my portion is even smaller than 1/8th. It makes a lot!

Martha Stewart's Homemade Hot Cocoa Mix

Love this recipe. I cannot claim that it is healthy - it is mostly sugar! - but at least there are no chemicals if using high quality sugar, cocoa powder and salt!

Sausage, Potato, and Spinach Soup

A yummy way to use up all of our CSA potatoes and incorporate some of the fresh spinach we have in the fridge!!

Kielbasa and Cabbage Skillet

I made this using Bratwurst we had in the freezer. Was looking to use up our cabbage!

Wild Rice, Cabbage and Chickpea Pilaf

What a fun way to use cabbage!

Rainbow Chard, Beef, and Cheddar Macaroni and Cheese

This was a fun way to use our Rainbow Chard!

Pumpkin Smoothie

High in protein and fiber - this is a great filler for breakfast!

Cinnamon Roll Baked Oatmeal Cups

These are a delicious, quick breakfast that kids love!

Slow Cooker Ranch White Chicken Chili

This is a wonderful white chili recipe! So tasty! Cannot go wrong!

Cold Greek Quinoa Salad

This is an exceptional tasting salad! Great for parties, picnics or just at home!

Ham, Egg, and Cheese Monkey Bread

This was a delicious breakfast. Next time I would try to make the biscuits using a whole wheat flour.

Crustless Spinach Quiche

This quiche is super easy to make and delicious too!

Pumpkin Coffee Cake with Brown Sugar Glaze

NOT a healthy recipe. Only adding it to SP to count the calories. Would not recommend unless you do not mind processed, boxed mix cake. It was so-so, but not totally *homemade* as I prefer.

Melt In Your Mouth Pumpkin Cookies

Delicious! Come out almost more like pancakes than cookies. This recipe originally had a frosting recipe w/ it, but I did not include frosting. They do not need it! I added more cinnamon and nutmeg than called for (included in this version) and used whole wheat flour vs all-purpose. This recipe also has more pumpkin puree than the original.

Bacon, Spaghetti Squash & Parmesan Fritters

We use whole wheat flour in place of all-purpose. We also try to use organic when we can (eggs, flour, green onions in this recipe).

This recipe Nutrition Facts does not include Plain Greek Yogurt (did not have when we made). Does include the garnish green onions.

Chicken Enchilada Pasta

This recipe calls for 1 rotisserie chicken, but I used 1# of boneless, skinless and it was perfect! Also, the amount of pasta was not noted. I made this to feed 4, so I used 8 oz (2oz per serving). This ended up making about 14 cups (soup ladles) when measured, so I had SP calculate calories per cup.

Beef & Rice w/ Veggies

This is something I am throwing together for dinner tonight.

Paleo Sweedish Meatballs

Nutrition Facts Calculated Per Meat Ball (Makes 30 Meat Balls)

Pumpkin Pie Slow Cooker Oatmeal

I made mine vegan as my son cannot have dairy. I used cashew milk in place of cow's milk. Almond or coconut milk would be great too. I also added additional spices including nutmeg and ginger. I used less salt than it called for and used Himalayan Pink Sea Salt.

Classic Pesto

I left out pine nuts and parmesan cheese, but can be added if desired.

Soup, Homemade, Leafy Green

Random leafy veggies thrown into a chicken broth base.

Cookies, Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chip

I add cocoa powder to the batter to make them chocolate, chocolate chip.

Soup - Chicken / Wild Rice / Carrots / Celery / Mushrooms / Garlic

Chicken Noodle Soup turned into Chicken Rice Soup w/ Mushrooms

Simple Chocolate Ice Cream

Homemade Chocolate Ice Cream

Chicken Stir-Fry with Avocado Salad

This was originally made with beef, but we rarely keep beef in the house or eat it, so we used chicken instead. We also used an extra avocado!

Spring Vegetable Paella

This originally made 6 servings with less veggies. I added even more veggies and this is equal to or greater than at least 12 servings. It made so much!!

Healthified Cocoa Squares

I used olive oil to coat the pan and real eggs in my recipe.

Raspberry-Chocolate Muffins

Original recipe states makes 6 muffins, but I got 9 FULL mufins out of recipe with exact measurements. Nutrition information based on 9 servings.

Tomato-Basil Chicken

I added extra onion and garlic to mine. I also included the additional olive oil that I used to cooked my chicken in.

Alternate of Italian Baked Orange Roughy

Found this recipe back in college. LOVED it. I reuse it every time I bake carrot cake. Definitely not a "heatlhy" recipe, but homemade none the less!

Cupcakes, Hershey's "Especially Dark" Chocolate Cake

Made cupcakes vs. cake. Originally cake recipe that makes 12 servings. Cupcakes made it into 26 (but I just counted it as 24).
