Crock Chicken and Sweet Potates

I found this recipe at and decided to try it. I made some adjustments to the original recipe by using chicken breasts rather than thighs and using sugar free preserves. I will probably tweak this recipe as I prepare it more often.

Southwestern Chicken Salad Wrap

Mix a little ahead of time so flavors can mix. You can easily double the recipe for party!

Turkey Mushroom Burgers

I thawed a pound of ground turkey and couldn't decide what to do with it. This is what I came up with. I served it with a fresh onion cibatta roll spread with olive oil mayo and layered with fresh tomatoes. It was yummy!! (Roll, mayo and tomatoes not counted in calorie total.)

Mary's Italian Meatloaf

This is a combination of ingrediets i use wtih meatloaf, but here I used panko crumbs instead of the oatmeal I usually use. I serve it with grean beans and a baked potato for a homemade treat.

Lasagne Style Soup

This combines the taste of lasagna without the calories. You can make with reduced-sodium ingredients and cut the sodium content way down.

Sauerkraut Soup

A friend introduced me to this simple, filling soup. I lightened up the original recipe by using 12 oz. of turkey kielbasa and fat-free sour cream.

Bean Soup with Ham

This is a quick and easy recipe that I used when making bean soup in a restaurant I owned and operated.

Chicken Vegetable Soup

I had this tasty soup at a restaurant and have tried to imitate it. It is tasty on a cold winter evening!

Stuffed Green Pepper Soup

This is hearty, tasty soup that can be frozen..

Fried Rice

This is a dish I learned to make many years ago. It's great to use up leftover roast beef or roast pork.

Black Bean and Corn Salad

A gal brought this to a potblessing meal at the church. It disappeared quickly! If you add more or less mayo or more chips, adjust the calories accordingly. Adding a tbsp. of cumin and some red pepper would give the salad a little kick.

Italian Soup

You can reduce the sodium by eliminating the parmesan cheese as a garnish, but it's not as good!

Mary's Turkey Meatloaf

Had to use up some ground turkey so came up with this mixture! It is tasty and you can add or delete seasonings according to your family's preference. It is also a good make-ahead meal as it freezes well, and you have single-serving portions.

Basil and Tomato Personal Pizza

This just sounded good. I have fresh basil in a herb garden and got some fresh tomatoes. Wanted pizza, and this is the result. You can vary the calorie content by changing out the pita for another type of pizza base and using a different kind of cheese and seasonings.

Southwestern Pasta Salad

This is a salad modified from one found the the "Taste of Home Comfort Food" cookbook. It makes a big batch so is suitable for a large family gathering or potluck dinner.

Beef Fried Rice

This is a dish I grew up with. Mom made it with leftover pork roast. I like beef, and others have made it using chicken. It's a one-pot meal that can be changed to accommodate your family's taste.
