Recipes I've Shared:

Instant Pot Steel Cut Oatmeal

Basic recipe. I usually add vanilla to this, but anything else like fruit or jam or nuts can kick it up a notch too. Nutrition calculated based on listed ingredients

Alton Brown's Yogurt, 1% version

Homemade yogurt is easy and tasty!

Roasted Beets

Simple Roasted Beet - single serving but easy to multiply as you need!

Individual Chocolate Cakes (Serves One)

Made with Splenda and Apple sauce. You can cut out the chocolate chips to reduce the calories even more. For a decadent treat. If you want to be responsible, share...

Banana Bread

I came up with this recipe because I was looking for a light moist banana bread. I took several banana cake and banana bread recipes and modified them to give me this recipe. It's made with Splenda but a bit of molasses and cocoa powder is added for flavour (both are optional, but are included in nutritional information calculations).

Healthy Mac N'Cheese

So this is a recipe I figured out so that I could have Mac N'Cheese without unnecessary fat. It's a great alternative to homemade Mac N'Cheese. I found making the sauce this way easier and more foolproof than on the stovetop. It was easier to prevent lumps in the sauce and it was much faster! Because I am usually cooking for one I am often making up recipes just for one person. So this is a meal just for one person, but if it's for a family it's just a matter of increasing the portions as needed.

Easy Chocolate Squares

The caramel, chocolate and touch of salt with the crackers made these a huge hit with the gang. The calorie count is low -- if you can stick to just one serving. It reminds me of a homemade chocolate bar.

Healthy Fried Rice

This is a recipe I came up with as an alternative to the greasy fried rice that's available in restaurants. The flavour is similar, but without the unnecessary fat. This is a decent recipe for one, but for a family you can multiply it as many times as you need to.

Multi Grain Pita Pockets

I used multigrain flour though the original recipe called for whole wheat. Dough was tougher to handle than some.

Baked Oatmeal

This is a nice alternative to the usual morning bowl of oatmeal. It makes a soft breakfast square. I usually eat it slightly warmed up with a bit of milk.
