Recipes I've Shared:

ChristyK08's Breakfast Skillet

This is easy to make and has endless possibilities of add-ins if you choose. The sausage is fully cooked, so you only need to brown it with everything else in the skillet.

ChristyK08's Reuben Sandwich

I have tweaked my recipe over the years and this is what I have settled on with some lowfat ingredients. I keep searching for low sodium products as the sodium is fairly high.

Crockpot Tomato Basil Soup

This soup is good by itself or with whole wheat cheese ravioli or tortellini added. Nutritional information is for soup only. The sodium can be lowered by using low-sodium products.

Taco Pizza Bites

Modified this recipe from a few years ago that I got from someone else.

ChristyK08's Tuna Salad

This is one of the few recipes that I "throw together". However, I have measured the ingredients so the nutritional information is accurate. Tuna varies considerably by brand in sodium and calories (depending on serving size). The NI does NOT include any bread.

Crockpot Pasta Sauce with Meat

This is a recipe that a friend created and I've tweaked on it over the last 8 years! The sodium may be reduced by either reducing or omitting the salt or by using reduced-sodium tomato products.

Sweet Potato Skins

This is a recipe from Rachael Ray! I substituted center-cut bacon and reduced fat sharp cheddar cheese for the regular. You may substitute yogurt for the buttermilk. Serve with a salad to make a meal, but you have to calculate the additional nutrition information.

Reduced Calorie Bread Pudding

This is a modified version of Chocolate Cinnamon Bread Pudding. It is listed as a Sparkpeople recipe.

Lemon-Blueberry Scones

This is a recipe from Delicious and filling as a breakfast item!

Chicken Fried Frice

This is a Weight Watchers recipe that I got a couple of years ago and modified slightly. Although the serving size seems small, it is filling. The cooking time assumes that the brown rice is already cooked.

Crockpot Chocolate Cake

This is a crockpot recipe from I reduced the sugar from 2/3 cup to 1/3 cup, the chocolate chips from 1 cup to 1/2 cup, and I added 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce to make it moister.

Hot Ham Salad Sandwich

This is a lower fat and lower calorie version of SCHNOZZLES recipe for Bunsteads.

Brown Rice and Pepperoni Salad

I got this from the Weight Watchers recipe boards a few years ago. You may use any combination of chopped peppers.

Creamy Vegetarian Spaghetti

I rediscovered this Weight Watchers recipe from a few years ago and modified it slightly.

Reduced Fat Sopapilla Cheesecake

This recipe uses light cream cheese and a reduced amount of real sugar.

Christmas Candy

This is a seasonal treat to eat in moderation! Work quickly once the almond bark has melted as it hardens rapidly.

ChristyK08's Crockpot Lean Beef Lasagna

I found this recipe on the Weight Watchers recipe boards a few years ago.

ChristyK08's Pecan Pie Muffins

Just two of these satisfy my craving for pecan pie, without all of the fat & calories!

Very Good (9 ratings)
Lite Crustless Pumpkin Pie

I reduced the sugar and used fat free evaporated milk. I used two whole eggs so the texture is the same as "regular" pumpkin pie.

Sourdough Apple Melt

This is a splurge of a sandwich, but it is filling and the flavors are interesting.
