Recipes I've Shared:

Chicken Biriani

A nicely spiced chicken and rice dish.

Pizza Topping for Philly Cheese Steak Pizza

These are the toppings I use for a Philly Cheese Steak pizza.

Really Good, Really Fast Pizza Dough

This is the recipe off the back of the new Fleischmann's Pizza yeast package. But I have reduced the oil from 3T to 2T. It is really really good with 3 so go ahead and use that if you are not cutting back so much on calories.

Frozen Spiked Watermelon Lemonade

A wonderful way to use up surplus watermelon out of the garden

Creamy Chicken Curry

Nice curry dish for the cold weather. This is rather americanized so even my picky DH will eat this. Quick and easy if you already have the rice and chicken cooked as I tend to do.

Coconut Custard

When I found low fat coconut I knew I wanted to make coconut custard right away. If you can't find it at your store, just recalculate with your own coconut instead

Zucchini Beef

A great dinner, similar to lasagna but not so heavy. Good for using up garden zucchini

Curried Pumpkin Soup

Hearty mildly spicey soup. Great on a fall evening with whole grain bread on the side.

Incredible! (1 rating)
Lentil Garlic Soup

A nice garlicy mildly spicey lentil soup. Also very quick to make.

Moroccan Chicken Stew

A spicy but very healthy winter supper.

Honey Pumpkin Butter

This is a very tasty, healthy topper for toast, muffins, pancakes.

This recipe was figured using home grown stewed pumpkin. It was reasonably cooked down and thick but not as much as canned would have been. In order to use canned, I would use less, probably 4.5 cups and cook slowly for less time. End result should be nice and thick like apple butter

Low Carb Pumpkin Sausage Soup

This is a fabulous soup, healthy and decent without too much fat or carbs.

Spaghetti Squash Salad

Good summery way to use up easy to grow spaghetti squash. Lot of other good fresh garden veggies can also go in

Poblano Chicken Chowder

A hearty soup for colder weather.

My Cottage cheese Salad

Just a simple humble lunch time salad when tomatoes are ripe in the garden

Green Beans with Ground Beef

This recipe is the result of finding new ways to use up the green beans from the garden.

Broccoflower Salad

Just like the salads with both broccoli and cauliflower. It's just that I had the broccoflower and it needed to be used up. This is a great salad with lots of color, texture and flavor. You probably could make this even less calories by using a sugar substitue but we like honey and it works well in this recipe

Chicken Barley Soup

Great soup if made with stewing hen and fresh ingredients

Potato Sausage Soup

Tasty, almost like Olive Garden's Soupa Touscana. To make it even more like it add chopped spinach or kale towards the end of cooking time.

Salad Dressing for Strawberry/Feta Salad

This is a recipe just for the dressing. Use 2 Tablespoons over a bed of salad greens, 3 large sliced strawberries and 1 oz light feta cheese

Pork and Asparagus Stir Fry

Tasty recipe found on a package of fresh asparagus I bought at the store

Salad Dressing Base

I use this as a starting off place for making Ranch, coleslaw, Blue Cheese dressings. I even use it plain from time to time. Serving size is 2 Tablespoons

Shepherds Pie

Just your basic comfort food. Mashed potato crust is yummy with added garlic and non fat yogurt instead of sour cream

Hamburger Kima

My Pakistani version of hamburger helper!!

Butterball Turkey Sausage Casserold

Kind of like a hoagie in a bowl

Creamy Pasta with Veggies

Simple 2 pan/1 bowl meal

White Chicken Chili

A nice way to use up leftover chicken or pork.

MeatLoaf from back of Lipton's box

Plain and simple but what we love. I added sausage flavored TVP to extend the ground beef and add some zip

Split Pea Soup

The thickness of this soup will depend on how much extra water you add while cooking. Make to your own liking.

Turkey Pot Pie

Healthy Comfort Food

Orange Beef

Something I threw together when I was missing an important ingredient for another recipe.

Very Good (4 ratings)
Tuna & Noodles

Just basic comfort food.

Chicken Salad for sandwiches

I use leftover chicken breast to make this. It is a bit dry compared to the usual way chicken salad is made. But you could add a bit more yogurt if desired.

Beef Stew

My healthy version

Fresh Cream of Mushroom Soup

There is nothing like a good bowl of fresh mushroom soup. Use 3 or more varieties to make soup more interesting

Christmas Limas and 3 Pepper Melange

Amazing side dish with lots of color and flavor. The special limas and fruity vinegar can be substituted if necessary

Black Bean Soup

Nice spicy bean soup.

Liptons' meatloaf

Just the normal Lipton's meatloaf

Black Bean & Rice Salad

Nice cold salad with simple meat or fish meal

Chicken And Noodles

Comfort Food on a cold wintery day. I like to use leftover chicken from a roasted hen

Bean Soup

I made this to use up some delicious smoked turkey leftover from the holidays. The calories may not be exact in this recipe, due to trouble making exact measurements in how much turkey was used. It was extremely lean and the broth had all visible fat removed

Healthy Cornbread

My version of the blue box cornbread

Fresh Ranch Dressing

A quick and tasty, but still healthy Ranch Dressing

Sun-Bird Light Fried Rice

My quick fried rice recipe
