Zucchini Brownies

This recipe comes from my neighbor growing up. They are very rich and cake-like. My only change to the original recipe is that I add the mini choc chips instead of chopped nuts, but you can adjust to your own tastes.

Very Good (1 rating)
On the Go Breakfast Biscuits

I make and freeze these for on-the-go breakfasts. Can pop a couple in the microwave as needed. These could be even healthier by making ingredient adjustments (I calculated using what I had on hand.)

Buffalo Blue Chicken Quinoa

This was modified from one I saw on Pinterest. I cut back on some of the cheese and milk to make this fit into my calorie range. And the original called for chevre instead of blue cheese.

Almond Joy Steel Cut Oats (Easy night-before recipe)

Delicious and nutritious! Makes you feel like you are eating a candy bar. Has healthy fats too.

Love Martini (Melting Pot)

This is my favorite cocktail at the Melting Pot. I got a copy of the Melting Pot cookbook for my last birthday, so I wanted to calculate the calories... at over 200 calories, it is certainly not good for you!

Banana Pudding

I wasn't a fan of the almond milk straight or in smoothies (I found the original too sweet), so I wanted to come up with something to use it up. This was my first test. It turned out to be a nice treat!

McCormick Grill Mates Mojito Lime Marinade 1/2 Packet Prepared w/ Less Oil

This is for my personal tracking of this mix when prepared. I cut back on the oil and add the juice of one lime for a little something extra. I use this to marinate various meats. The nutrition calculation is for 5 servings, but the amount that actually coats the meat varies.

Ham, Green Bean and Potato Soup

This is a hearty soup. Always a hit!
Use all low/no sodium ingredients - the ham has enough salt already.

Chili Chicken Soup with Cilantro Dumplings

I adapted this to our taste from a Betty Crocker Bisquick Recipe. It is excellent! (and less spicy than the original - this is still pretty spicy!)

Black Bean Dip

This is a refreshingly good and healthy dip to be served with fresh vegetables, pita chips or tortilla chips. Can also pair with some low-fat sour cream.

Buffalo Chicken Dip

This is probably my most requested dip for gatherings of all types. I took a full-fat recipe and use all lower fat ingredients to make this better. It's hard to stop eating... :)
