Recipes I've Shared:

Pumpkin Drop Muffins

Use an ice cream scoop (cookie scoop) and put them on a cookie sheet to bake. Much neater, and there is more surface for the low-cal powdered sugar dusting. Adds sweetness right where you need it.

Roasted Potato Soup

Adapted from the Barefoot Contessa's recipe for Roasted Potato and Leek Soup. This is lower fat and higher protein.

Chicken Pasta Primavera At Last

I made this not knowing that it would remind me of the first Pasta Primavera I ever had at the ripe old age of 23 I think. It had a wonderful flavor which I attributed to nutmeg. Now I know it was the fresh basil with the black pepper that gave it a taste I would remember and seek for over 25 years.

I served this with broccoli and the fat could be cut down by using less cream and more broth or even milk.

Very Good (1 rating)
Shitake Mushroom sauce for pasta

I adapted this from a recipe. Theirs had 2 cups of cream in addition to all the rest of the fat. So the amounts of the ingredients are very much adjustable.

Pork Chops with Stuffing

Perfect Fall/Winter casserole. Thyme and Sage flavor the house along with flavoring the meat and stuffing. These are quite generous servings (sport-loving male teenagers afoot)--I will halve the serving to meet my 3 oz meat requirements.

Orange Scones

Light and flavorful. Glaze or butter is great if you can afford the cals.
