Recipes I've Shared:

Lighter Creole-ish Coleslaw

This can very easily be doubled - either the dressing, to make it more "wet" or with 2 bags of coleslaw mix.

Veggie Drawer Soup

Quick soup made from stuff I almost always have in the fridge.

Black Bean & Oat Burgers

I found this recipe, an adaptation of another one, on the Angry Chicken Blog. I make these all the time - they are great frozen and reheated in the toaster.

Chicken & White Bean Spicy Soup

I wanted to do a chicken & white bean chili, but I couldn't find a recipe that tempted me, so I improvised one. It came out more like a spicy soup, but I'm okay with that.

Chocolate Chip Scones

This recipe was a vegan recipe that I adapted back to a non-vegan recipe, and then tweaked again.

Honey Vinegar Coleslaw

This is a compound of a lot of vinegar coleslaw recipes I found online. Not only do I not like mayo, I didn't want the additional fat/calories of a may dressing.

Cheddar & Pancetta biscuits

Adapted from a cookbook recipe.

Cranberry Cheesecake Bars

This is my best friend's recipe, I have no idea where she got it. Not low-cal, but totally delicious.

Improvised Farm Stand Curry

Indian inspired. Made this with leftover farm stand eggplant & squash, thrown together with some frozen cauliflower. Next time I may add lentils or coconut milk, but it was lovely this way, too.

Matt's Applesauce

home-made applesauce from a combination of different recipes

Cider Braised Pork with Leeks

This is one of the dozens of variations of braised pork shoulder that we love to cook. This isn't health food, but it is extremely delicious and economical.

Adaptation of Sugar Snap Peas and Salami Stir Fry
