Cheesy Couscous

Intro Text or Description.

Lea's Granola

Yummy Granola ---- need only 1/8 -1/4c. w. flavored yogurt to make a quick, nutritious breakfast!

Johnny's Blueberry Cakes

My hubbie [who is skinny as a rail and can eat ANYTHING and everything] made me these this morning!

English Toffee Coffee Cake

SO easy. Usually, I would use all Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Mix, but I ran out and had to use regular Jiffy!

Tri-Pepper Pine Nut Pasta

You could add or subtract a lot to this, but I like the simplicity.

Luxurious Pie Dough

This is a take-off on the Joy of Cooking recipe, Pie Dough Cockaigne, which really [to me] doesn't taste one iota different! Also, you can roll it or press it, no matter!

Lea's Oatmeal

an ever-changing list!

Chicken, Cashew, Carrot, Chickpea Curry

Use chili [or curry] paste to your idea of hot!

Clementines w. Cardamon and Pine Nuts

This is my adaptation of a recipe from Weight Watchers Best-Ever Desserts.

Sausage and Vegetable Pasta Soup

MY version of pasta e fagioli! High fiber and high protein! See further for ways to cut fat!

Fatty Blue Cheese Dressing

yuck. that's all i had inmy house. But yummmmm.

Creamy Dill Dressing

A dressing for any kind of salad ...

Peach Cardamon Muffins

Simple cardamon goodness!

Banana-Oatmeal Pancakes Do-over [from Fitness Mag]

Add all these in a blender, wait 10 minutes, cook. You can have them with or without maple syrup, although that's not included in the recipe.

Low Fat, Two Nut Pesto

The best, almost guilt-free pesto around! Yes, it really DOES take that amount of olive oil! The addition of walnuts with pine nuts cuts down on the cost. I've used all walnuts before too!

Rhubarb-Strawberry Lo-cal Microwave Crisp

A great low-cal, microwave version from Perfect for those hot summer nights!

My Thai Coconut Shrimp Soup

This is a low-cal version of a Fitness ( ! ) Magazine's recipe! WONDERFUL...not hot at all but if you like it hotter, kick up the ginger and the chili sauce.

Delicatessen Rice Pudding, but Low in Calories!

This is the kind w. uncooked rice cooked in milk. I use to work at a deli and we really DID make this recipe but I've NOT used full-tilt boogie whole milk, whole eggs, butter, lots of sugar and so forth. It looks like it takes a long time to fix, but it isn't and it's worth it!

Banana Greek Yogurt Protein Smoothie

I added 2 pkts. of Truvia bec. of the varying sweetness of the ingredients used --- but it's plenty sweet! It all depends on how tart (or sweet) you like your smoothies.
