Adapted from a recipe by Dole using pineapple slices. I didn't have a can opener (long story as to why), so I substituted applesauce. Turned out great

Hungry Girl Yippee-Ki-Yay Spicy Southwest Chowder

The original of this recipe includes chicken broth and chicken meat. I was making this recipe to please some vegetarian friends, so made a few adjustments and it still turned out delish! No chicken broth or chicken meat was used in the making of this soup. Chicken flavored soup base, however, was...

Also, I subsituted ground cayenne pepper for the chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, and 1% milk for the soy milk.

Parmigiano and Herb Chicken

Recipe from Rachel Ray 30 Minute Meals. states: "This recipe is so versatile: serve chicken hot and pair with pasta salad. Hot, they're good as is with a simple mixed green salad."

I served them with Garlic and Rosemary Mashed Potatoes and mixed vegetables. I made this recipe for a girls night with some friends and it was a big hit!

Homemade Strawberry and Raspberry Pop Tarts

This recipe comes from the blog Peas and Thank You by Sarah Matheny. I made a coupld of changes based on what I had in my pantry, however the recipe is much the same.

Tuna Burgers- using canned tuna

I found this recipe on I substituted light Miracle Whip for regular mayonnaise, which along with ketchup and other seasonings gave this a nice tangy flavor... Excellent cheap meal!

Black Bean Taco Filling

I love this recipe because it is very versatile. You can use it in taco shells (soft or crispy), a top a salad, or along side some rice. It is delicious and really doesn't need cheese, salsa, or sour cream, but these can be added if you choose! I adapted this from the Better Homes and Gardens Meatless Tacos recipe.

Basic Tuna Salad

This is a very basic tuna salad recipe that I learned while working in the industrial cafeteria at my university's student union. I always loved their tuna salad and found out that the secret is lemon juice (about 1 tbsp... I put 2 fl. oz.'s in the ingredients, but didn't know how to translate that it's really about 1 tbsp or less) and a dash of pepper (season to taste). It's not really going to re-create tuna salad, but if your's seems to be missing something this recipe is worth a try!
