Bea's Tomato and Onion Salad

Wonderful way to use fresh produce from the garden

Mustard Tilapia

The mustard taste completely fades during the cooking process leaving a nicely seasoned crust on the fish.

Strawberry Romaine Salad

To lighten the dressing, serve it on the side and dip fork into dressing instead of coating the leaves.

Omit Jack Cheese and sprinkle with goat cheese, feta, or gorgonzola

Basic Crepes

Great for desserts or savory dishes

Reduced Sugar Pumpkin Brownies

Low sugar version adapted from recipe for Pumpkin Brownies posted by AMYKAREENA

Pumpkin Muffins

I love muffins, but they need to be moist and delicious--I fed these to my family and they didn't even know they weren't eating the regular sugar-laden version. You can shave off about 25 calories per muffin if you omit the flax and the raisins, but you also short the nutritional values.

Pumpkin Custard

Pie filling without the crust. Yummy!

Pumpkin Pie with Mock Crust

The Bisquick helps form a "crust-like" bottom on the pie. Or omit the Bisquick for a delicious pumpkin custard.

Hobo Soup

A can of this, a can of that, a little ground meat.

Cherry Waldorf Salad

Add a serving of cereal for a great breakfast, or enjoy as a dessert


A light meal or a complete snack. High protein

Grainy French Toast

A little healthier version of a favorite treat


Great Breakfast or Brunch meal. Make it even better with turkey bacon, or no meat at all.

Fresh Cucumber and Onion Pickles

Lightly sweet pickles with no added salt!

Beet and Onion Salad

Tangy accompaniment to nearly anything. Some doctors advocate adding vinegar to your diet which may help regulate your blood sugar.
