Stephanie's Quick Naan

Don't have time to make risen dough? This is a great substitute! Spray with butter flavored spray and sprinkle with garlic powder for garlic naan. Great with Chicken Tikka

Stephanie's Chicken Tikka

Add more or less cayenne, garam masala, or cilantro to taste. Serve with 2-ingredient Naan or rice if you prefer. (Neither included in count). Thin with water if needed.

Two Ingredient Bagels

Fat-free, high protein bagels that taste great! The dough can be used for so many things! But if you need a bagel fix, this is great!

Croque Monsieur

Croque Monsieur literally means "Mister Crispy." What is not to like! A great "knife and fork" sandwich. Very tasty and filling. A French staple.

Smoked Salmon and Quinoa Cakes

Delicious smoky flavor from the salmon and chipotle.

Amish Baked Oatmeal- low cholesterol, sugar and fat

Less than 1 mg of cholesterol and low fat. Lighter on the sugar, but rich in taste with nuts and fruit. Great cold or warm.


Incredible! (1 rating)
Maple Almond Granola

This is a delicious recipe based on Alton Brown's. But with no oil and low sugar syrup the calorie count is much better. But a half a cup is the serving. Best used on yogurt or as a snack.

Banh Mi Chicken Salad

Tastes similar to Banh Mi chicken sandwich, without the bread. Great on rice crackers if you are gluten free. Or eat in a lettuce roll if you are low carb. Also great on the side of a lettuce salad with sesame asian dressing.

Sabudana Khichidi (Tapioca Indian Hot Breakfast)

A very filling and delicious Indian breakfast. This recipe uses less oil and no ghee. For some great videos on how to make this dish, see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SlIiiUkILUE (not in English)
or http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wsBrhALuLtg (in English)

Spicy Italian Sausage Pasta

For those who like it hot! This is a spicy, flavorful version of traditional spaghetti sauce. Great on any pasta!

Fresh Peach Pie

Using peach jello. A light and refreshing dessert. Serve with favorite whipped topping for a great summer dessert. You can use frozen peach slices. Just add to the cooked glace before adding to crust.

Spicy Mexican Tossed Salad

A fresh and flavorful salad with lots of crunch and spice. Calories are for 8 1 1/2-cup side servings. Double the calories for 4 HUGE main course salads.

Firinda Sutlaç

A Turkish Rice Pudding (sutlaç) made with brown rice and baked (firinda) for a ccrème brulée type dessert. But no eggs and only 1/2 the sugar. If you don't want to use artificial sweetners (I use 1/2 and 1/2), you can adjust the sweetness to taste. Delicious!

Creamy Mac-n-Cheese

Comfort food done light! This is an adapted (and lightened!) Emeril recipie. It is filling and savory. With just a vegetable you will be satisfied. You could even serve it to company if you added some seafood. Lobster or crab would be yummy! But also more calories!

Veggie Cream Cheese Spread for Bagels

A very light alternative to the fattening cream cheese spreads. Using a mixture of light cream cheese and yogurt, it is perfect for sandwiches, bagels, or as dip for vegetables. To serve as a dip, just thin it a little with skim milk.

Breakfast Casserole

Moist and delicious. Great with biscuits as well.

Chicken Tostada Casserole with Spicy Corn Relish

Poached chicken, tostadas, enchilada sauce and just a bit of cheese for the top. Served with Spicy Corn Relish.

Sloppy Toms

My family's favorite holiday leftover meal.

Great way to use up leftover turkey, dressing, and gravy. Also a good way to extend the turkey when you need to feed a lot of people with limited leftovers. Keep some stuffing mix on hand and some canned gravy. Can be made is a crockpot or in a casserole without the buns for a potluck dinner.

Grandma Warfel's Sauerkraut Balls

A crispy fried meatball, filled with cream cheese and sausage. Tasty and rich, this is Grandma's recipe made lighter.

Chicken Spaghetti Bake

Great for leftover roasted chicken or turkey. A one dish meal. You can add any leftover gravy to the mix and make even better. But it isn't figured in.
Serves 4 very large helpings (2 cups) or 6 smaller helpings (1 1/2 cups). For smaller helpings figure 0.75 of a serving for calorie counting purposes.

Grilled Chicken Salad

Light and tasty. Very refreshing.

Italian Meat Sauce

A great sauce for pasta or lasagna. At 116 calories per 1 cup serving, you can't go wrong. With a cup of pasta and a low fat salad, you have a meal. It is low enough in fat you could have a piece of garlic bread too! All for about 400 calories!

Turkey-Beef Meatloaf

Simply delicious. Makes about a 3 pound loaf to serve a large family and have leftovers for lunches. A 3 oz. serving is only 205 calories.

Baked Salmon Cakes

Like a crab cake, but with salmon. The baking really lightens it up.
Great in a sandwich or salad.

Garlic and Ham Pizza

Roasted garlic on a pizza really satisfies that craving for something savory. A quick way to satisfy that pizza craving too. Use pitas or tortillas for alternatives to the crust. Figure 112 calories for each slice is from the crust alone. Calories are listed by slice. Recipe makes 8 large slices.

Easy Oatmeal Banana Bread

With less than a gram of fat per slice, this is a great way to get that sweet fix. And it is about 100 calories per slice and less than 7 grams of sugar. It is a lightened up Joy of Cooking recipe that is so easy too.
