Fairly healthy potato recipe.

Recipe #40693

This apple crisp recipe uses less butter and still tastes great.

Recipe #81231

This is a low fat, delicious & vegetarian if you use vegetable broth chili that is very tasty. I got the recipe from my neighbors' sister-in-law, Michele in Texas, and we have been enjoying it ever since.

Betcha can't eat just one!

Recipe #13526

I found this recipe on a Splenda ad, tried it and modified it a bit. I have made it several times for my husband who will NOT eat anything sugarfree...he really likes this version of apple pie.

Recipe #77349

Delicious cornbread that won't clog your arteries. I've adopted this recipe as it didn't have a loving owner. I have made it myself and you can read my comments in my review! I have updated the cooking time and added optional ingredients.

Recipe #87115

A great light substitute for one of the best known comfort foods! Great with mashed potatoes made using chicken stock instead of butter. From Better Homes and Gardens: Family Favorites Made Lighter.

Recipe #96335

For those interested in a low fat drink.

Recipe #44989

No butter, milk or cream! The long simmering time gives this version it's intense flavor. I cut this recipe out of the Boston Globe in April 1989, about a year and a half after it was first added to the menu.

Recipe #85172

I found this on a diabetic recipe site and have made them several times since. They don't taste low sugar and produce a very soft flavorful cookie. I hope you'll like them, too!

Recipe #80852

Mashed potatoes are Oprah's weakness-but made low-fat, without the butter, this dish is a healthy alternative. Yukon Gold potatoes add smooth buttery texture and horseradish a great zesty flavor with fewer calories.

Thanksgiving is coming up, and we all know what that means! Food! Hey, we all love pumpkin pie, right? Why not make it low-fat? What? You didn't think that it could be done? Well feast your eyes (and mouth) on this!

Recipe #4059

A great way to enjoy a favorite breakfast without the calories.

Recipe #45171

This is the dieters dream cake! It's rich and bold in flavor, but not bad on the waist line. This recipe is also wonderful when it is made with or without the cocoa powder and fresh fruit is added.

This is my version of a light lasagna recipe found in Self magazine. It can be frozen in individual size portions for later use. To further reduce fat, the ground turkey breast can be cooked separately and then rinsed with water and pressed dry before adding to the sauce.

Recipe #71864

Not sure where the original version came from but this includes my tweaks over the years. The results are a lovely crepe than can used for entreés or desserts without having to worry about fat and calories. Bon appettit! For those following Weight Watchers, it's 2 points per serving.

Spring is here! Let the cookouts begin. Here is a simple but good recipe for barbecue sauce that is sure to please.

Recipe #89290

I made these for the first time after a co-worker of mine asked me if I could make something for him that was mexican, but still easy on his waist line (stupid models). Well, being the nice woman that I am, I told him that for $40 I would make him anything he wanted. Believe it or not, he actually paid me. After making him pay that much money I decided to atleast try to make something half way descent for him, and this is what I came up with. I've never actually tried these myself, but that's only because they never last long enough at my work for me to get one. I take that as a good enough sign to post this recipe before trying it, okay? So, I just hope that you like them as much as my co-workers do! Thanx!
