An adaptation from The Italian-American Cookbook. The smaller the shrimp the longer the prep time! I learned that the hard way years ago when I was having guest for dinner and they arrived long before I was finished peeling and deveining the shrimp.
Another recipe to add to my pecan pie collection... This comes from Cooking Light (November 1999), and it looks like the main modifications are in the crust, which is described as more biscuit-like, rather than the typical flaky pastry crust.
Tasty yet relatively easy on the waistline. Apple sauce replaces the usual fat to keep the cake moist. If you wanted to make it even lower calorie, you could substitute Splenda for some or all of the sugar.
This is a relatively low-fat, low-calorie version of the rich dessert. It comes from Cooking Light, March 1998. Cooking time includes cooling time, too. UPDATE: In step 7, flour through salt means the ingredients on the ingredient list between sifted flour and salt.

This is an adaptation of a regular Recipe to make it Low Fat. Really very tasty. If on Weight Watchers it will serve 3 people at 5 points per serving. It can easily be doubled or tripled for more servings.
A real comfort food. Serve this with freshly boiled rice/pasta or even mashed potatoes. 3 WW points per serving. (From WW cookbook) This dish freezes really well, you can make extra for those lazy nights. Since this goulash is low in fat, there's no addition of sour cream/cream to thicken it up. If you like it very thick, simmer with some chopped potatoes for longer time or use 1 1/2 tsp cornstarch dissolved in 2 TB cold water to thicken up.
Quick and easy to make for lunch or dinner! My husband asked me to make him a tuna melt. I'd never eaten one (I don't like tuna except for grilled tuna steaks), let alone made one, so I tried this recipe from The Complete Cooking Light Cookbook. I've made this for him a few times now, and he says they're good! He's not big on English muffins so we normally use whole wheat toast instead.
Several years ago, DH was in the hospital with a heart condition and was placed on a fat restricted diet. This recipe was provided by the hospital and I have used it since to make wonderful gravy, especially at Thanksgiving and Christmas. Browning the flour is the key to rich fat-free gravy
This fabulous dessert is 3 WW points a serving and can be made with fresh, canned, or frozen fruit. It is adapted from a recipe in the "More With Less Cookbook." Incredibly easy to make, I fall back on this when unexpected company comes for dinner.
