I didn't use rice. If you miss that, you could chop 1 cauliflower head in the food processor until it resembles rice and throw it in the crockpot at the beginning.

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Bar

Polka-Dot Banana Bread

Hungry Girl HG's Ode to Mexicali Pizza

A zesty black bean 'n tomato sauce, two types of cheese, roasted corn, peppers, and more. And unlike its inspiration, the serving size is the entire pie. Weeee!

'Plant one on me!

Eggplant is terrific, especially in saucy Italian dishes. And when we first heard about Macaroni Grill's new meal, we thought it sounded great. Then we saw the stats. OOF. So we got a-swappin' -- this recipe puts the restaurant version to shame.

Hungry Girl Sweet Treat a la souffle

Our spin on a classic. The flaky, buttery dough tastes incredible with the sweet and creamy filling of this treat. Would we sound like a broken record if we said "YUM" again?

If pumpkin pie and oatmeal had a baby... and that baby wore lots of layers... it would look like THIS!

Adapted from the recipe on

Mini Apple Caramel Cheesecakes

Looks impressive...tastes great! I keep the shells in their holding containers for easy transportation to cookouts, lunches, etc. It protects them from getting broken.

Baja-Battered Fish

Great fish recipe for Fish Tacos! We serve it flaked with whole wheat tortillas, part-skim mozzarella, tomatoes and a few drops of Hot Sauce. YUM!

Chocolate-Coconut Bars a la Martha Stewart (not-diet friendly)

I had these at a party and went home to see how "bad" it might be for me...needless to say, these are an "occasional food." I thought about playing around with the recipe to see if I can get the calories down without losing the flavor. They were yummy though!!

Martha's website described them as:
These rich bars are inspired by hello dollies, a popular treat in the South. You can use practically any cookie for the crust; grind in a food processor until fine crumbs form.

Note: Sweetened condensed milk is made by heating whole milk and sugar until much of the liquid has evaporated. Do not substitute evaporated milk, which is unsweetened.

Chocolate Haystacks

Easy party dessert recipe. Great for kids to help with as well! YUM!

A little bit different take on chili.

Hungry Girl Yippee Paella

Putting the Yay in Paella!

Hungry Girl Artichoke Hummus

The problem with hummus is that a serving size is relatively small -- just two tablespoons. So even though the stuff isn't crazy-high in calories, it's way too easy to overdo it by eating too much of it. Luckily, I DO have a recipe that's SUPER-LOW in fat with a pretty large serving size. It can be found exclusively in the "Dip It Good" chapter of Hungry Girl 200 Under 200. But since you're desperate, I'll give it to you right here and now...

Modified Hungry-Girl Fudge

So low cal. So good. Easy-peasy.
