Recipes I've Shared:

Homemade Sage Breakfast Sausage

If your sausage comes from the butcher as salt & pepper pork sausage, omit the salt. Don't skip the nutmeg because you think it will make your sausage sweet, it won't and it adds a very nice depth to the sausage. You can add the same seasonings to ground turkey if you'd like. We happen to have pounds and pounds of fresh pork in our freezer!

Kroger's Italian Chicken Pasta Bake

A recipe that came in the mail from Kroger in a coupon packet. I think you could swap out any cheese filled pasta for the borsetti if you can't find it

Italian Frittata

This is an adaptation of a quiche recipe a friend gave to me, I'm not sure it's a true frittata but it's much easier to make than an omelette!


My whole family loves this recipe, it tastes a lot like salsbury steak but much more tender. I counted each patty as one serving. I think two makes a nice serving but my boys think 5 sounds more like it.

Tammy's Deluxe Whole Wheat Shortcake

Sylvia's Chocolate Cake with Fluffy White Frosting

Not a diet food, not a low calorie food, not a low fat food. But if you are looking for a special cake and want to know what's in it, look no further

Glazed Lemon Cake

I revamped one of my favorite cake recipes. Hope you enjoy it!

Whipped Cream

Just for my own calorie counting purposes, not a low fat food but great to keep on hand when you feel a need to induldge. I put a scoop (use an ice cream scoop = 1/3 of a cup) in a bowl, top with 1 cup strawberries or raspberries, drizzle 3 melted Dove chocolates over it and it is heaven.

Kettle Corn

I make mine in a StirCrazy electric corn popper

Baked Cod with Crispy Lemon Herb Topping

I found a version of this on the Internet after tasting a butter laden version as a sample at the grocery store. I used all dill but think next time I will use 1/2 dill and 1/2 parsley.

Stuffed Shells

I like to make one 9 x 13 for my family and save an 8 x 8 to bless another family with.

Sweet Potato Walnut Waffles

I took a basic recipe off and tweaked it to make it healthier. Next time you are baking sweet potatoes for dinner, bake a couple of extra, peel them and put them in a zip top bag. Then mash around in the bag and treat your family to these delicious waffles. Great topped with unsweetened applesauce and sliced banana. If you don't have wheat germ, just add the extra 2 T. of white flour. If you don't have ground flax meal, just add 1 T. unsweetened applesauce. You can also use regular sugar in place of Sugar in the Raw. Healthy cooking doesn't have to mean difficult cooking, Please note that different waffle irons mean different yields. The orginial recipe yielded 12 waffles but my iron yielded 20. Keep that in mind when counting nutritional information.

Grape Salad

A delicious way to get your fruit. The original recipe called for sour cream but I subbed in plain yogurt. Also great on other fruit as a dip, without the grapes mixed in.

No Bake Peanut Butter and Honey Energy Snacks

This is a throwback to my childhood. Not the healthiest snack in the fridge but very filling and great for a post workout or soccer game snack.

Italian Pasta Casserole

Featured in the Oct/Nov 08 issue of Healthy Cooking with some changes to suit our family's tastes.

Thick Low Fat Chocolate Pudding

This is great warm or cold, with a quick spray of Low Fat Readi Whip. My children love this.

Italian Zucchini Quiche

I skeptically ate this over three years ago and was hooked. It is so flavorful, even without any meat.
