Fiesta Mexican Pie

You can reduce the sodium and fat content by using 2% Cheddar Cheese and reducing or substituting the taco seasoning.

Upside Down Banana Cream Squares

This is good for dessert or even breakfast.

Shrimp and Corn Orzo

This recipe is light and delicious with very little prep time and ingredients.

Endless Mexican Chicken

This recipe is not only delicious and quick to make it's your workhorse if you love Mexican food.
Cook this recipe up in large volumes and store in the freezer for quick use when you've a craving for something over-the-border.

Replace this for ordinary chicken and beef in tacos.
Bake into enchiladas
Combine with rice into burritos
Serve over tortilla chips for a healthy version of nachos

The uses are only limited by your imagination.

This took me 10 minutes to imagine up and we'll get a lifetime of dishes out of it.

Delicious Vegetable Beef Stew

I whipped this recipe up on a Sunday afternoon and it was a savory feast for the taste buds.
It can be cooked in a pot over 45 mins or more or put in a crock-pot to stew all day.

Chicken Mozzarella Al' dente

My family loves chicken Parmesan but we don't like substituting fat for flavor.

This is a quick recipe full of flavor, healthy for you and easy on the waste line.

You can substitute the Arrabbiata sauce for homemade or another jar. But I always use the all natural pasta sauces at the store. They're more expensive but they are lower in calorie, have no added sugar or chemicals and are the closest thing to homemade.

Francis Coppolo sauce is only 65 calories for a 1/2 C.

Another variation is to toss pasta with 3 Tbs olive oil, garlic and basil.


Mama's Tarragon Chicken Salad

(NOTE: This is a resubmission of my mom's recipe. Correcting several ingredients)

Fresh chicken is the key to this recipe but canned chicken will work in a pinch.

This was a favorite of my mother's kitchen and I share it with you in her honor.

Peach Berry French Toast

Using the vanilla soy milk not only keeps the calories down but also allows for the omission of additional sugar.

Creamy Chicken Enchiladas

To lower the fat content even more, use reduced fat cheddar cheese.

I use Nueva Concina Taco Seasoning - it's more authentic and less salty.

Chocolate Fruit Crumble

You can use any variation of fruits to suit your taste. Experiment and see what you like.

One serving is about 1/2 cup

Tuna Salad on Fresh Spinach

This recipe is very low calorie and great any time of year.

Just Peachy Pecan Smoothie

Leave out the fiber and/or pecans to reduce the caroies.

Smoothie, Berry Banana w/ Soy milk & fiber

This recipe is high in fiber but also high calorie. An excellent way to start the morning and give you a nutritional boost!
