Raw oatmeal cookies from Daniel Fast Food

Got these from the Daniel Fast Food website and they are really delicious

Basic "Fluff" Fruit Dip

I am putting the regular version in first and then I will add "makeover" version in my recipe box, too. This is very party friendly and kid friendly and healthier than the cream cheese version.

"Fluff" the Healthier Version

This is the lower fat and lower sugar version of my regular "Fluff" recipe

Leann's Simple Cranberry Vinaigrette

Quick and delicious on any sweeter salad with fruit and nuts in it.

Leann's Favorite Healthy Oatmeal Cookies

I throw in everything but the kitchen sink and shortening. LOL They are a great source of fiber and low in sodium. They are a family favorite in our house. :)

Leann's Homemade Granola

a little lower in fat because I leave out the coconut but great fiber source. To make it even lower you could probably use margarine or canola oil but the texture is different and may need longer to bake.

Irish Guinness Stew

Traditional potato and carrot stew made with beef instead of lamb because we cannot find lamb here right now and given a rich flavor using Guinness Stout

Leann's Favorite Breakfast Muesli

This is a meal in itself and I might add a half a grapefruit on the side but it stands alone in nutrition and it is filling

Leann's Shrimp Fried Rice

quick and easy to clean out the fridge with this one.

Sweet and Sour Sauce

this is what I use on my fried rice and other Asian things that need a sauce because I am allergic to soy and cannot use soy sauce. It is sweet but very nice compliment to dishes.

Leann's Tomato Soup

This is another hit with my kiddos ranging in age from 5 years to 16 years of age. This one is all my concoction from playing and from using what we had in the refrigerator and it is yum!

Blueberry Muffins

I make a few adjustments but the original muffin recipes that I got this from is a book called 1 Mix 100 Muffins by Suzanna Tee. The rule is after three changes to a recipe it is now your own. I will note my changes here with the original recipe...

Low Fat Berry Scones

When I am craving a biscuit with my tea this is my favorite recipe. You can sub chocolate chips for a little sweet chocolate craving and still be low in fat and calories.

The simplest Tilapia recipe EVER...

This is my basic way of baking tilapia... I also pan sear it but I love the baked version SO much.

Blueberry Fruit Blast Smoothie

I love smoothies for a quick pick-me-up in the afternoons or mid-mornings and my need for higher fiber makes these perfect supplements to boost my fiber intake. You cannot go wrong with a fruit smoothie! :)

Leann's Chicken and Dumplings

I make it ALL from scratch so I can control what goes in for my family. There are allergies and we have to cook that way these days. :)

My Favorite Green Smoothie!

This is my go-to quick breakfast or evening meal when I have eaten a late lunch or a huge amount already that day. It is a light snack to tide me over from lunch to dinner, too if I need that with my blood sugar sinking at mid-afternoon.

Macaroni and Cheese

This is a family favorite without preservatives and artificial ingredients that I feel good feeding my family... It is baked in the oven.

Very Good (16 ratings)
Peanut Butter Chocolate Banana Smoothie

When I need something with a sweet decadent chocolate treat without the guilt this is my go-to recipe.
