Tangy Dippng Sauce

This tangy sauce is a snap to make and goes with vegetables, meats, pita bread - just about anything. It is an adaptation of a recipe I saw on Sandra Lee's "Semi-Homemade" but I cut the calorie content down by eliminating straight honey and using honey mustard and Splenda. It can serve 4-6 as a dipping sauce or it can be drizzled over food and go further. My family doesn't want me to make traditional gravy any more - they ask me for the brown stuff.

Spinach and Chicken Pizza

When you just crave a spinach pizza this one is a fair substitute for the fatty variety from the big distributors

Banana Paradise

I made this up on the spur of the moment when I was craving something sweet and hot after a long and tiring day. It took 5 minutes to put together and the satisfaction it gave lasted all night long. I used a medium banana and Log Cabin Sugar Free pancake syrup

Olive Spread

This was a childhood favorite that my grandmother made and gave to the kids on saltine crackers. It goes beautifully with pita chips, bruscetta, wheat thins, so on and so on. When I get in a nostalgic mood, I spread it on whole wheat toast and imagine that I'm a kid again.

GT -Xpress Mexican Stuffed Roast

If you have a GT-Xpress cooker this is an adaptation of a recipie seen on the infomercial. I have also made it in a small non-stick skillet and a small omelet pan. It is filling and very tasty. The meat can be changed according to whatever you have leftover in the fridge. I've even used turkey franks.

Leftover Roast Pizza

Great way to use up leftover pot roast (or other meat). Add mushrooms or other items as you like.

Baked Enchilada

This is a great recipe to use up left over roast. As written, it is one serving. I generally make 4 (2 for me, 2 for my husband) and serve with a green salad. A great light dinner or filling lunch

Strawberry Chiffon Pie

Fairly quick and easy. You can top it with Cool Whip or other topping if you like. If you use an immersion blender, it will be light and fluffy.

Very Good (1 rating)
Sweet Potato Pie

This is a "lightened up" version of a traditional favorite. I use my family's favorite spices but you can adapt the taste to suit yours. If you want to serve with fat free whipped topping feel free.

Quick Chocolate Oatmeal bars

This is a quick and easy treat that satisfies me when I start 'jonesing' for something sweet and filling. It takes about 5 minutes to put together. Again, I wouldn't suggest a steady diet of this but once in a while we need to indulge ourselves, don't you think?

Sweet and Sour Stir Fry

This is filling, hearty and very tasty. Season with your favorite flavor: teriyaki, hoisan, garlic. The list is endless. Also use your favorite pasta or leave it out for a dramatically less calorie count.

Ham Salad

This is a quick prep salad that goes really well on White Cheddar Rice Cakes. Chopping every thing takes a few minutes but it is worth it. My finicky husband likes this on a bed of shredded lettuce for a hot weather lunch.

Grandma's Pimento Cheese

This was one of the first recipes I learned from my country grandmother. I have trimmed it down by using low-fat ingredients. Everytime I make it, I remember being in her kitchen and thinking she was the best cook in the whole world.

Pork Rolls

The slow cooker takes most of the work out of these delicious and filling rolls. Even my finicky husband loves them.

Walk Away Top Round Roast

This is an easy delicious way to have a nutritious roast that you can walk away from and live your life while it cooks. My family loves it and asks for it over and over.
