Recipes I've Shared:

Light Turkey & Sausage Stuffed Peppers

This version of Stuffed Peppers uses turkey for the protein and mushrooms instead of more rice to reduce the carbs & calories without sacrificing flavor.

Sausage White Bean & Kale (or Spinach) Soup

My aunt posted this recipe on our family website last year and I've been making it ever since. So delicious! She says I need to try the kale, but I'm chicken to buy it fresh and I haven't found it in the frozen aisle... yet.

No Guilt Frosted Devil's Food Cookies

This is a modified Pillsbury recipe I got from a Sunday paper flyer a while back. It suggests using the reduced sugar versions of their cake mix and frosting, but I used reguar cake mix and substituted apple sauce for the crisco. I first made it with the crisco and that was all I could taste so do yourself a favor and skip the shortening in favor of the more healthful apple sauce! These turn out light and cakey for 60 calories a cookie: yum!

Slow Cooker Crock Pot Beef Stew (Betty Crocker w/ Extra Veggies)

Hearty, healthy comfort food loaded with extra veggies. Dish up!

Almond Custard Peach Galette

An easy, beautiful, & delcious low calorie trieat! I modified the recipe to include toasted almonds.

Everything but the Kitchen Sink White Wine Penne Pasta

Don't be scared off by the calorie count, this is a large portion!
Improvise with what's in your fridge/pantry. Maybe more meat (shrimp or turkey kielbasa?), artichokes, kalamata olives or even capers would've been yummy. But this turned out scrumptious as is. Enjoy!

Sunset Magazine White (Chicken) Chili (my version)

Mmm... warm comforting chicken & beans with just a bit of zip from the lime juice and tomatillos.

Vegetarian Gourmet Thin Crust at Home

My version of Papa Murphy's vegetarian gourmet is a great treat with considerably less calories than even the thin crust delite version (160 for 1/8th of a 12", vs. 200 for theirs).

Triple Chocolate Zucchini Cake

So moist and full of chocolatey goodness. You'll be amazed this is loaded with zucchini. It adds moistness that is a wonderful balance to the chocolate punch of the dark cocoa powder and 2 types of chocolate chips.
