A fun Saturday morning breakfast with the kids
I decided to try my hand at Kettle corn, I love kettle corn but it's expensive. This is going to be a once a week treat I think. I am going to be tweaking the recipe until it's just right. I think it needs MORE corn.
something I threw together with what I had on hand that the kids seemed to really like
This started as a Spanish rice casserole and then inspiration hit :) I froze half of it to use for another day.
Makes 16 2/3-3/4c servings depending on amount of liquid added.
These happened in the kitchen the other day.
I wanted chocolate desperately!! BUT I wanted something healthy too. This was my compromise.
You can make breakfast s'mores by adding a few marshmallows and microwaving for a few seconds. My kids loved it! :)
Adapted to what I had on hand from Taste of Home, Italian Spiral Meatloaf, Take back the tradition, February/March 2011 page 30
Hubby was helping in the kitchen that day, I recommend using less cheese but he wouldn't let me! ;)
I love the simplicity of a warm bowl of mush in the morning. :)
You can also make it up and toss it in a travel mug for on the go!
I am looking for an unrefined cornmeal to use but I haven't found any yet. As with most things you could use less butter and less sugar but this is exactly how I like it and believe it or not I normally don't get enough fat in one day...
We had an abundance of cherries and chicken and this happened one day in the kitchen. :) I also think that a serving is closer to half a piece of chicken but this recipe is based on a whole piece per person.
yes, I could have used less sugar but this is my recipe not yours ;)
My youngest' favorite meal. :)
NON DIET-OCCASIONAL TREAT ONLY!!!!!
from all recipes- adjusted to use less egg
I love poppyseed dressing and have a hard time finding brands that are affordable and that don't use unhealthy ingredients. I made this with things that I had on hand at home. I am sure you can make it with splenda and fat free mayos if you choose but I didn't have them on hand. :) This is just like Marzetti's and Krafts Poppyseed Dressing but not as thick so it goes farther. Each serving is a little more than 2 Tablespoons.
This came from Crystal at the food storage network.
It has the same texture as store-bought but with all the wholesome goodness of whole wheat and you can alter the types of wheat too! You can use spelt or hard white wheat or hard red wheat. I make mine with a mix of white and red and my picky picky daughter says "it tastes like it came from the store!" This is the HIGHEST compliment given to me! :)
This bread is perfect for anything from PBJ to grilled cheese! And it's hearty enough to help you feel satisfied.
You can omit the oil but make sure you oil your bowl and the bread pans!
Something I am playing around with to get the hubby's approval.

There’s nothing better than a good cup of split pea soup on a cold winter day. Now your soup can cook itself in the crockpot with this simple recipe.
A healthy alternative to other not so wholesome cookies. I use white whole wheat flour that I get from local Amish bulk stores. King Arthur also makes a white whole wheat that you can find at larger stores.
My husband makes these on Friday mornings. He got the recipe from Kingarthurflour.com. We use olive oil and that is what the nutritional analysis reflects. I do NOT care for waffles but I could live on these quite happily.
This is the chili to remove all chili cravings. I use homecanned tomato products, cooked dried beans, and veggies from the garden. The sodium level is not correct as I was not able to find the nutritional information for no salt added tomatoes. I make this right after lunch so it can simmer away all afternoon.
Even my pickiest eater loves this one!! Would be even better if you used Parmesan instead of mozzarella but I ran out.
A crispier crust and made with less than half whole wheat flour makes this a BIG favorite with my picky little eater! And the best part is that it's out of the oven in 25 minutes. The pizza joints in town take a lot longer than that to deliver. Cost is a little less than 4 dollars per pizza on average.
just a basic. It's better with more veggies but the kids like it this way. A touch of sesame oil will make it phenomenal but I didn't have it on hand this time.
Like apple crisp but with the ever abundant zucchini! It really is hard to tell the difference!
just a basic meal for us! Add more veggies if you like!
Just another lasagna recipe. This is the way we make it at our house. Sometimes when I'm feeling carefree I will actually add meat to it but it really doesn't need it! I make this up in the morning and then pop it into the oven an hour and a half before dinner.
a close guess about their recipe
something I whipped up the other day- still needs some tweeking but not bad at all.
YES IT'S A LOT OF SUGAR, no it isn't the healthiest it could be but it's ok for once in a while. Please do not post about how unhealthy it is. I tend to gripe...
LOL!! God bless
My mother in laws super simple breakfast casserole, so yummy!!
Family staple when there are little ones involved.
Not diet food!!
Something different than just chicken or beef or cheese enchiladas. Note- there is no cheese in this.
yet another recipe from the in laws
This is like a stuffed pepper but made with pattypan/scallop squash. The squash should be about the size of your fist. So let em grow. LOL.
I love veggies so I tend to throw everything into these!
Really basic and better for you than mac n cheese from a box. Makes 12 big servings. I like to add in whatever veggies I have on hand. They tend to pick them out but at least I tried!
Serves two or one really hungry person!!
Found a "starter" recipe on ALL RECIPES from J.Drury- Fabulous homemade Bread. I tweaked it to include only whole wheat. My pans are 9.25x5.25x2.75. Chances are your pans are smaller and you will be able to make more than 4 loaves. The original recipe made 6 -8x4 loaves. You can do all of this by hand if you so choose- I did. :) This is a great bread for PBJs and toast. Sometimes homemade bread is just good by itself but I needed to have a recipe for the kids lunches that I knew was good for them AND my budget.
a variation of an old favorite using olive oil and whole wheat!
A creative way to use those leftover lentils and the ever present shredded squash!
This is really high is Sodium so you would want to use low salt canned goods!! OR homemade with reduced salt methods!!
This was a lazy day for me- I am sure that you can use your own sauce BUT I didn't have time to make that all up on this day! :)
oh soooo yummy, I will be trying these with applesauce instead of butter soon!!!
Made with leftover pork roast! (Kayla's 6)
The best recipe I have found for perfectly made biscuits! I started with the Better Homes recipe and made some minor adjustments! These are not good for you but are ok once in a great while-when you've got company!!
been making this for 17 years now and I still love it- this was my first recipe
One of my favorite's ans of course it uses zucchini! LOL
I cheated and used a can of tomato soup this time. The hubby liked it so into the cookbook it goes!
I had an IHOP craving so I tried to copy their nutty pancakes. Not quite what I was looking for but not bad at all- I will continue working on this one.
An easy quick fix filling that adds fiber and protein to your day. Also a great way to use up those prolific zucchini.
A yummy almost gooey pasta dish that satisfies that "bad for you" pasta craving. The shredded zucchini adds color but virtually no flavor. My picky eater(absolutely no cooked veggies) doesn't complain this way.
Egg-free whole wheat muffins. Very yummy.
Costs about 40 cents to make enough for two 12 inch pizzas!
A variation of the Self-rising Pizza Crust found at hillbillyhousewife.com
Nutrition given is just for the crust!!!
Easy and good for you!!
Oh so good!! I love the extra veggies in this!
My kids love this and I love that I can have more than one piece for breakfast!
This is a lower fat and still yummy version of my family's FAVORITE holiday staple.
this is a variation of country_angel36's awesome sweet potato pancakes
soup my mil serves for harvest time from The Best of Country Cooking 2000
brown burger, open cans, heat and serve!
use up that squash
Picked this up from a church potluck. Very Very yummy for those chocolate/coffee lovers! I decided to make this a very naughty treat but you may use less of the icecream and whipped cream to make it easier to fit into your calorie budget.
