Pulled Pork - slow cooked bbq

this is incredibly tender... tangy... my whole family CRAVES it... a 3oz serving should be plenty on a whole grain roll or some flatbread or a pita... DELICIOUS!

baked zucchini stuffed with sausage onions and peppers...

zucchini feta pancakes

a yummy side dish for lots of different kinds of meals!

basic banana bread

simple and delicious from Fanny Farmer... I like adding a teeny bit of spice to it - lemon peel... nutmeg... to taste!

classic homemade beef stew

this is one of the best tasting beef stew recipes I have ever used. it takes some effort and time... lots of stages to it - lots of chopping, stirring... even the way you do the sauteeing and the kind of quality dutch oven you use affects the outcome - you WANT lots of brown bits to scrape up after doing the onions, garlic mushrooms and stew meat... but it is WORTH it. low fat and high protein - - - VERY VERY Good! comfort food!!!!

Fanny Farmer Cornbread

this is by far the tastiest cornbread I have ever made... I am SURE it is because of the 2 tblspns of shortening (unfortunately!) - but still only about 160 calories per piece - so it is worth it. so so yummy with some lite healthy chili!

creamy chicken and black beans

trying to find new ways to make fiber-filled dinners with different flavors and using what is on hand... hoping this will be a winner. I will be serving it over quinoa tonight!

leftover pork bisquick casserole

jury's still out on this when it's done we'll report back - needed something to do with leftovers!

Quiche Lorraine

really really yummy breakfast quiche that can be made then frozen and served up later.

VERY MOIST because of the yogurt! lowfat because of the yogurt too!

drop biscuits

easy and quick homemade taste!

spicy chicken thighs

one serving should be 2 boneless skinless thighs...

turkey cacciatore pie

this is basically an italian style meatloaf... with a name that the Aldi's website gave it to make it sound a little fancier. it was a good meal though, and pretty easy! not bad healthwise either...

this is a delicious combo of cornbread and collard greens for a yummy side dish!

Slow Cooker Chicken Leg Quarters

Just an easy way to do chicken all day while you are at work!

ground turkey taco stew

similar to another recipe on here for chicken taco stew, but I didn't have the tomato sauce and only had one can of stewed tomatoes, so I added 2 cups of beef broth and used groudn turkey instead of chicken breast... should be yummy!

mini turkey loaves

this is a good sized mini loaf and I only needed one for a meal with veggie and potato to fill it out. don't over cook though, because it is such lean meat that it cah run the risk of drying out. otherwise it was yummy!

corn & black bean salad

delicious cold summer salad for cookouts!

low fat strawberry banana bread

very very moist and tasty! I think it would be even MORE delicious toasted and buttered. YUMMY!!!!

Parmesan Spinach Cakes

from Eating Well recipes. VERY yummy - but don't try to substitute a blender for a food processor - it is a mess!

leftover roast shepard's pie

this is how I figured I could use up leftover eye of round roast I made yesterday, with a way to ALSO use up the homemade mashed potatoes it was made with, and to make it yummy but different from the night before!

Orange Country Style Pork Ribs

this is taken from Aldi's Website, using their Roseland Country style pork loin boneless ribs. it was a tender way to make pork but a bit high on the calories and fat. I am sure there are ways to do this recipe with other cuts of meat to make it more healthy and lowcal, lowfat.

tex mex shrimp stew with rice

this can be as mild or as spicy as you like, just do your cayenne to taste!

Curried Carrot Soup

this is light but filling and sooooo tasty. Came from a Kashi-inspired recipe... cayenne can be added to spice it up, lemon juice to finish it off...

Very Good (3 ratings)

Amanda's best chili - lite version

this was the best chili recipe our family has ever tasted... and I switched ground beef and ground sausage to lean ground turkey and meatless sausage for a healthy version that is still REALLY hearty and delicious!
