Recipes I've Shared:

Turkey, bean & pasta soup

I made this up to use up my turkey leftovers...quantities are adjustable! Tasty and with the beans, very filling.

Roasted root veggies

Easy, tasty, loaded with potassium and Vitamin A!

Walnut Chocolate Caramel Bars

This is a decadent treat. I make it for people at Christmas & try not to eat too much, it's almost like candy! If you let it cool overnight covered, you can cut into these small pieces which pack nicely into tins for gifts...and don't have too many calories each!

Incredible! (1 rating)
Roasted butternut squash with spinach and red onion

This is based on a Wegmans recipe, but without their basting oil and with quantities adjusted for lower calorie count. The taste is lighter and fresher.

Cranberry & sweet potato bread

Delicious bread! Quite satisfying even in small quantities. If you're really watching calories, try just a half slice with some tea or coffee!

Chicken stew with potatoes/celery/carrots

These ingredients aren't exotic but they make a great stew! I'd rather have potatoes than noodles, could also add some turnips and not add many more calories.

Turnip-potato pancake delights!

Great way to lower calorie count of potato cakes, if you like turnips, which I do.
You could also add some chopped onion or chopped garlic...possibilities are infinite...

Mickey's hearty sweet potato stew

Makes a hearty meal - servings = 1 cup - or a side dish, with browned tilapia or other sauteed fish like salmon.
Subtitute celery for broccoli if you don't like broccoli, or regular potatoes for sweet potatoes. But good just as it is!

Easy Beef Pot Roast Soup

A quick meal using 2 purchased ingredients, 2 easy-to-fix from scratch ingredients, and 1 leftover...the brown rice!
