Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joes

A different twist on regular Sloppy Joes

Bars - Honey Chocolate Brownies

Brownies made with honey and cocoa powder.

Cookies - Single Serving Oatmeal Raisin Cookie

Not super- low calorie, but at least there's only one cookie so you can't overeat them!

Cookies - Monster Cookies (w/ Splenda Blend)

Flourless cookies made with Quaker Oatmeal, Chocolate Chips, m&ms and peanut butter. Made a bit lighter by using light butter and Splenda Blend.

Crock Pot Pork Chops

Both boneless and bone-in pork chops will work for this, but be sure to use chops that are on the thicker side about an inch thick. You can skip browning the chops first, but they taste world's better if you do not skip that step. Also, the red pepper flakes do not add spicyness, but they very much add to the flavor, so don't be afraid of them!

Ham & Cheese Stuffed Buns

Hot ham and cheese stuffed bakery rolls.

A different twist on lasagna - the filling is rolled up in the noodles instead of baked in layers

Chicken Spinach Stuffed Buns

Kaiser rolls stuffed with cream cheese, chicken, and spinach mixture. The rolls become very crisp after baking and the inside is warm and gooey and delicious! (Note that the calorie count will actually be slightly less than the recipe states because the rolls are hollowed out and much of the bread is thrown away).

HG Crab Rangoonies

Recipe from Hungry Girl for baked crab rangoon. To shave off a few calories, you can use 2 TBSP Fat Free Cream Cheese instead of using 1 TBSP of FF and 1 TBSP of whipped, but I find that the whipped gives the recipe a little more creaminess and a little less sodium.
