Spicy Fiesta Lime Corn on the Cob

I love corn on the cob especially if it is doused with a good helping of butter and salt. Not so good for you. I came up with this idea when looking for healthier alternatives. Not overly spicy, but if you're looking for a good balance of heat and citrus, this is it. You won't miss the butter and salt at all! Simply delicious!

Crispy Greek Yogurt Chicken

Change of pace from the traditional breaded chicken! The yogurt keeps the chicken moist while the Panko bread crumbs add the texture and crunch we all crave! I am a garlic lover, so if you don't like strong garlic taste reduce the amount of garlic or eliminate completely and use only the Ms. Dash. Hope you enjoy!

Nanay's Craver Special - Pepperoni Pizza

Sometimes nothing else will do if you're a pizza lover like me! My problem is portion control! If I have a whole pie before me, I am likely to eat half of it! Not good. This recipe gives you the great taste of the pizza you crave with less fat and 150 calories less than a slice of a large pan pizza from a commercial chain. 1 serving of this along with your favorite veggie will definitely keep you under 400 calories and is a satisfying meal. Enjoy!

Nanay's Chicken Picante Enchilada Bake

This is an "OMG" recipe! If you're craving enchiladas, you've got to try this. At 272 calories, 4.1g of fat and 33 carbs per serving, it's diabetic friendly! You don't have to sacrifice taste for healthy!

Nanay's Crock Pot Chicken and Noodle Supper

Who doesn't deserve a homemade comfort food dinner? When I think of Mom's cooking, I think Chicken and Noodles. Hope you enjoy it!

Crispy Herbed Chicken Nuggets

A delicious and healthier version of one of my favorite weakness! The key to this delicious alternative is the fresh herbs. Really good when pared with a big salad!

Nutty oatmeal spice cookies. All my favorite flavors all rolled into one cookie! Diabetic friendly at 9.8 carbs per serving! Try to find that in a sugar free cookie that tastes good!

Turkey Sausage Taquitos

A quick throw-together entree that is sure to satisfy. The recipe is a little high on the sodium, but if you budget it into your daily totals, it should be fine as an occasional reward meal. Great for weekend breakfast! A favorite in my house for years!

Almond Cashew Butter

Recipe my daughter made up because she ran out of all the almonds she needed for almond butter. This recipe is only 50% of the calories of regular peanut butter! Quite nice! If you like peanut butter, you will like this recipe!
