Recipes I've Shared:

Easy Baked French Toast

You can substitute your favorite bread, including a whole wheat which would be healthier.

Sausage and Peppers my way

Just a variation on the traditional sausage and peppers dinner

Slow Cooker chicken Pineapple Teriyaki

You can use fresh pineapple instead of canned. If so, use 2 cups diced fresh and add .5 cup of pineapple juice

Spinach & Strawberry Salad

This is a recipe from Paula Dean. I reduced the sugar and the dressing tasted great.

Maureen's borrowed Chow Mein Noodle Casserole

The original recipe calls for ground beef. I generally substitute ground turkey in recipes for ground beef, but you could use lean ground beef if you prefer.

Edna's Goulash

Recipe was given to my husband by a former co-worker and it was one from his mom.

Angel Hair Pasta and Chicken with Oriental Dressing

If you cook the chicken before, this recipe is very fast!
I altered a recipe slightly and exchanged the vidalia onions for green ones and removed some of the oils (vegetable and hot chili oil, which were originally in the recipe)

Eggplant, Spinach, and Zucchini Lasagna

I modified a version of an Eggplant Lasagna I found because it calls for mushrooms and we prefer spinach.

Different Lemon Zucchini Bars

This is a recipe which was posted by CherylN on 9/25/2011. I eliminated the frosting and substituted applesauce for the oil. As per Cheryl's suggestion, increased the lemon from .25 cup to .50 cup.

No Bake Cookies

For a different flavor, you can use 1/2 cup peanut butter or 1 cup of peanut butter chips, or 1 cup of butterscotch chips, or 1/2 cup of raisins.

Hungry Girl EZ Pineapple Chicken

Recipe in book is for one. I made it for three. The weight of the cooked chicken breast was 5 oz.

Fruity BBQ Chicken for Four

From Hungry Girl 300 under 300

Fantastic World Foods Vegetarian Sloppy Joe

Buns are not included in calorie count.

leftover pork & apple for quiche

This recipe is an experiment which may fail. The cooking time may need to be adjusted after and thus I will edit. I added 1 tsp of cinnamon to the apples and onion while they were heating up in the frying pan.
Pre heat oven to 350 degrees.

Altered Mexican Casserole

Recipe originated from OHRITZ, but since I didn't have all of the ingredients listed, these ingredients were input to correctly calculate the calories.

Apple Chicken Delight

Instead of the PAM, you can use 3 tbs of Canola oil. I opted to remove it from the recipe as it adds about 100 calories per serving.

Abby's Slightly Altered Chicken Rollatini

With this amount of chicken, recipe makes eight -4.75 oz. servings. The amount of Ham and Provolone cheese used was used for 5 chicken breasts, although not each chicken breast got a full piece. If you make 6 servings, with each serving being about 6.33 oz, the calories are 421 per serving

Corrected Shrimp and Sundried Tomato Pasta

I increased the number of ounces of shrimp. Not sure how many shrimp are in 3 oz. (From what I have read, there are about 8-9 shrimp in a serving)

Leni and Greg's One-Pan chicken

So easy and all within one pan

No beans Mexican Lasagna

Recipe calls for 2 lbs of ground beef. I used ground turkey and less of it.

Turkey Scallion Rolls with Dipping Sauce

Serves 4, with approximately 4 oz servings each

Perdue Turkey Cheddar Bake

Cut this into 6 servings of ~7.5 oz each. I used an electric chopper for both the peppers and the onions.

Incredible! (1 rating)
Creamy Orange-and -Chocolate Cheesecake

Do ahead: Bake cheesecake; after cooling, cover tightly, and refrigerate in pan for several days.

Pumpkin Bread baked in coffee cans

This will yield 3 loaves which can be cut into 15 or more slices each. It is best to cut it thin.

Chicken and Sweet Potatoes with Thyme

The recipe calls originally for bone in chicken. I bought chicken breasts and tried it that way instead.

Oven Chicken Kiev

Prep 20 min; freeze:30 min;bake:35 min
Makes 6 serving

Southern Living's Salmon Bake with Pecan-Crunch Coating

This pecan-crunch coating also works well on grouper or other white fillets
