Homemade chili

just for calculation - add chili powder and cumin


2nd attempt at energy bars - too high in fat and forgot to add fiber.

Incredible! (1 rating)
High energy bars with fiber

1st attempt to make my own energy bars. I think next time I will use less turbinado and less flour to cut calories. This is a work in progress

Apple Cinnamon PB Porridge

Whole grain oatmeal groats cooked in the slow cooker. Several days breakfast prepared in advance. One serving provides whole grain, fruit, healthy fat and fiber.

Lenten Tuna Lasagna

This is an adaptation of a very old tuna lasagna recipe. I have removed some of the fat from the original by using water-packed tuna, 2% Velveeta, 2% evaporated milk, and 98% fat free soup. It is still rather high in sodium, however. It is easy to assemble and bake. Cover and store leftovers in the refrigerator. Reheat individual servings for 90 seconds in the microwave.

Mild chili

Made with mild chili beans and ground turkey

Galley Corn Bread

A modified version of the cornbread recipe in The Mystic Seaport Cookbook. I exchanged 1 cup of all purpose flour for 1 cup of whole wheat flour. I have also added creamed corn to the mixture.

Thick and chunky pizza sauce

Rich and chunky with veggies. Great for homemade pizza.

Turkey Stroganoff from leftovers

Turkey leftovers make great casserole dishes. This one is easy and quick. It is fewer than 500 calories per serving and high in protein. I made it for two with one serving of pasta to cut some calories.

Filet of salmon sandwich/salmon burger

This is made from wild caught salmon. It is easy, nutritious and fewer than 300 calories. Serve with a side salad or a cup of soup for a more substantial meal.

Pease porridge

Very thick pea soup. Good for slow cooker or on stove over low heat.

Spanish Rice

Easy skillet meal or casserole. Savory and filling. Keeps well in fridge for leftovers or make-ahead meals. This is always a hit at a potluck dinner.

Crustless Spinach Quiche

Easy microwave recipe. Easy to assemble cook and serve

Whole wheat crepes

Easy to mix and cook. A nice change from pancakes.

Pumkin Soup

Easy homemade soup with real appeal for the cold months ahead. Rich in beta carotene.

Whole Wheat Lasagna

Adapted from the box recipe for Ronzoni lasagna. Easy to assemble using the dry lasagna noodles.

Individual Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecakes

Simple, no-bake cheesecake. Yummy and easy
