Ultimate Mini Cream Cheese Tarts

These are a delicious and affordable way to enjoy cheese cake in small amounts. You can top the individual tarts with pie filling of your choice but you will need to add appropriate calories. I adapted this recipe from the original of Paula Deen of the food network.

Lower Cal. Diet Tuna Spread

I found that if I changed the ingredients this diet tuna spread could be reduced to next to nothing for calories. I believe my recipe is about 19 calories per serving compared to the original version that had 38 calories per serving (THAT' HALF THE CALORIES). The tuna i chose was lower, I omitted the cheese and my choice of salad dressing is ZERO CALORIE, ZERO FAT AND IT ACTUALLY TASTES GOOD. Give this recipe a try if you like tuna salad but don't like all the calories. Actually, I even like this WITHOUT the dressing, so maybe you should try it BEFORE you add your dressing. Good luck and happy healthy eating!

1BigDogs Spinach Mushroom Scramble

I adapted a favorite recipe, Beth's Crustless Spinach Mini-Quiche. I liked her recipe however I preferred not to use the oven all the time, so I made some adjustments. I found that this recipe can be cooked in the microwave or in a small saucepan or skillet. I thawed the package of frozen spinach in the microwave and squeezed out all liquid by wrapping it in several paper towels. When spinach is dry, place it into a microwaveable bowl and add one cup of Egg Beaters and 1/2 cup of skim milk. I then added 6 large button mushrooms cut into slices and stirred the mixture. You may season your mixture now or wait and season it upon serving. I like using cayenne powder, salt and pepper, you might like garlic powder or other seasonings, use your favorite. The next step is up to you, either cook the mixture in the microwaveable bowl for about ten minutes, checking for eggs being done occasionally or spray a small saucepan with cooking spray and pour the mixture into the pan and cook covered on low to medium heat until cooked. I chose to eliminate cheese which reduces many calories which allows me to enjoy this entire serving MYSELF. You may find that you are able to share this recipe. Good luck and happy eating!
