Jaymz's Szechuan Mushrooms and Shrimp

I made this for lunch one day and it was really good. I served it over brown rice. The Shrimp could be substituted with other meats or it can be served vegetarian with no meat at all..

Lean and Juicy Hamburgers

These were very tasty. The egg, oatmeal, and bread crumbs help keep them moist.

Mushroom leek Stir-Fry

This was great served over rice with pre-cooked shrimp.

Jaymz's Hamburger Spaghetti Sauce

This comes together pretty quicklyfor spaghetti sauce. You could use diced stewed tomatoes instead of the fresh one. My wife and daughter both gobbled this up. Freezes well so leftovers can become a quick dinner for another night.

Easy American "Fried" Potatoes

Way healthier than what I had as a kid but just as good. My family always had this with fried trout when we went camping. It's not quite the same without the campfire smell but close.

Jaymz's Yummy Beans

This is very hearty and filling with relatively few calories. The first heating and rinse should reduce flatulence. The Split peas will pretty much dissolve, but they add a great flavor and thicken the final product.

Jaymz's Breakfast Burrito Filling

This is really good. You have to add your own tortillas and cheese because the calories can really vary from brand to brand. This can also be eaten as a variation on scrambled eggs.

Shrimp Rotini and Vegetables

I made this stuff for a Lenten Friday lunch. It is really good stuff. The horseradish sauce gives it just the right amount of creaminess without adding too many calories. The shrimp and pasta could be doubled for two servings, but I made this as a one pan lunch with lots of veggies.

Jaymz's Sesame Peanut Chicken Stir-Fry

This is my own version of peanut chicken. My picky daughter and wife loved it. I will probably leave out the celery and pea pods next time.

Quick and Easy Fried Rice

I make this for lunch or dinner when I am in a hurry. It is very filling and low in calories and fat.

I sometimes substitute the Red Pepper Flakes for Fenugreek or Curry Powder because my daughter doesn't like "spicy".
I also like to throw in cooked chicken or shrimp with the vegetables to turn it into a complete meal.

Jaymz's Pina Colada-Lime Chicken

I just made this recipe up tonight and it turned out so good I had to share it with the world. I thought it was going to turn out to be a lot more calories than it did, but it turned out to be less than 200 calories per breast. I used the skin-on kind to keep the breasts juicy and allow the seasonings to penetrate the meat better. The Lime zest boosts the lime flavor without too much sour, and the pina colada mix gives it sweetness.

Chicken Asparagus Stir Fry- Italian Style

Very good and filling. Parmesan Garlic seasoning has a couple of calories, but shouldn't really be enough to matter. This is pretty much a complete dinner in one dish.

Robyn's Simple Italian Chicken

This was a really good recipe that our daughter even gobbled down. There are others out there, but we were trying to cut calories wherever possible.

Stuffed Hamburgers (figured correctly)

This is the same recipe as the one submitted by 27SANDRA, but the ingredients have all been calculated correctly. I did not include the bun in this because the calories in buns vary greatly. This recipe really tastes great, but It doesn't hold together in patties very well. I would recommend pan-frying instead of grilling.

Robyn's Easy Tuna Salad for Sandwiches

Quick and easy for a hectic schedule.

Seafood and Peppers

I wanted seafood and I came up with this. It is pretty good.

Jaymz's Hot and Sour Soup

I got some stuff from the asian market and wanted to try making something new. This makes a whole lot of soup with very few calories. The tamarind soup base is much better than vinegar for making it sour.

Robyn's Tuna Noodle Bake

This is a lower fat higher fiber version of a dish I grew up with. It is very creamy and tastes pretty great.

chicken taco meat

realistic version of another recipe on the site. The ingrediets didn't calculate right, and I found that the other recipe didn't have the right amount of chicken figured into it.

Potato Mushroom Soup

A lower calorie version of another recipe. Not quite as rich, but it tastes really good with a lot less calories.

Cubbison's Stuffing Lighter

I made Mrs Cubbison's Dressing even lighter than the light recipe on the box.

Jaymz's Roasted Chicken

I was in the mood for some roasted chicken, so I made it my way. This can be made without the Olive oil to save calories, but it won't taste as good and the skin won't get as crispy.

Garlic Beef Round Roast

Round tends to bedry, but the olive oil helps a lot.

Crockpot Venison Roast

I got some deer from a friend and wanted to cook it so my daughter would eat it. She likes it and couldn't really tell it wasn't beef.

Blackeyed pea soup

This stuff is really good and very filling. It is also really good for you. You can substitute a ham bone for the ham hock, but it won't be nearly as good if you leave it out completely.
