Recipes I've Shared:

Amy's Big Bad Mac & Cheese

Not for the dieter- all in moderation

Basic Turkey Chili

Slow cooker - 6 hours high or 8 hours low

Honey Mustard Pork Chops

This is from the Weight Watchers magazine.

Overnight Caramel French Toast

This is a special breakfast treat in my house! It has to soak in it's mixture overnight-- but then voila your breakfast for the morning is ready to go when you get up in the morning!

Pasta Elizabeth

This is a signature dish, of my sister-in-law. She ran a restaurant for years with her sisters and this was on the Menu. Her name is Elizabeth.

Deep Dish Pizza Casserole

You can throw any veggies on to this, and the calories won't change much and it will make it a bigger meal.

Taco Soup

This is from Paula Deen and the Food Network, except I swapped out the ground beef for ground chicken.

Garnishes include, sour cream, corn chips, grated cheese, and chopped greenonions (not listed on ingredients or accountanted for in caloric count)

Amy's Garbage Turkey Burgers

You can toss anything you have left over veggie into these burgers- but at least a cup of peppers as they help keep the burger together. Tabasco sauce is a must- just use less if you are not a big fan- you will be suprised how the peppers dull some of the zing. I serve with lettuce, tomato and dark mustard on whole wheat bulkie rolls.

Sesame Chicken and Vegetables

Weight Watchers Recipe- 4 points per serving

Express Pasta e fagioli

This is a Weight Watcher Recipe... they list it at 3 points per serving but the recipe calculator on Spark People tells a different story. It is more like a 6 point bowl of soup.

Shady Farms Turkey Cashew Stir Fry

Turkey needs to marinade in mixture for 30 minutes, hence the 40 minute prep time.

Scallops with Spinach & Cherry Tomatoes

This is a weight watcher's recipe. 5 points per serving.

Ethan's Favorite, Angel Hair Pasta with Pesto

You can use any type of pasta.

The Tomatoes are to garnish around the serving dish of pasta with pesto- but taste delicious with the dish!

Amy's Classic Crockpot Chili

Use to cook with ground beef, but I really do like the flavor of the ground turkey better. I also sprinkle the top of each individual serving with less then an ounce of shredded cheese and a dollop of light sour cream. I also like to serve corn bread with this- makes a great winter dinner!

Amy's Corn Chowder

This originated from my mother in law- I doctored it up to be a little more calorie friendly, using fat free half and half, margarine and turkey bacon and removing the salt pork. Her version is absolutely fabulous, mine is pretty good too.

Pennsylvania Dutch Stuffing

This Apple-Sausage Stuffing is alot of work but worth the work and calories!! A family favorite.

This is a recipe from my Mom that she got out of a 1970's TV Guide.

Baked Pita Chips

You can use Fat Free Tortillas too. Serve plain or with humus.

Microwave Hungarian-style potatoes and green beans

I double this recipie to feed a family of 4.

Roasted Herb Potato Wedges

Another old Weight Watcher Recipe (from 2001), and it is SO easy but looks like you worked very hard!! And best of all, yummy!

Saucy Chicken

This is an EASY dish that is loved by all in my family. It is an old Weight Watcher's recipe- 4 points per serving.

Lazy Cheese Lasagna

You can reduce the calories if you use fat free ricotta cheese, and low fat mozzarella. If you do this , it is a Weight Watchers recipe- 6 points a serving (301 cal/serve)

Joan's Seafood Thermidor

This is my mother in law's recipe, it is DELICIOUS and my husband's VERY FAVORITE!! It is a New Year's Eve Dinner tradition.

Classic Green Bean Casserole

This came from a Campbell's Soup can.

Amy's Vegetarian Pasta Salad

This is truly a side dish. An easy side dish to bring to a potluck pic-nic or BBQ.

Recipe Collections I've Shared:

Amy's Recipe Collection
These are the recipies I have collected here on SparkRecipe.Com. My other cookbook is full of recipes I have used over the years. I like to separate them because I wanted a collection of "healthier" recipes to turn to without having to go through all of the other recipes.
Two Decades of Recipe Collecting by AMYRENEE
My plan is to create each one (again) and take photos and upload them. For a psuedo cook like myself, pictures are very helpful. I am hoping this inspires me to cook more, and eat out less!! With Pea Pod there really is no excuse anymore- planning has never been easier.
