    Recipe #385709

    These taste just as good or better then the normal rice krispies that are made with butter. These have less fat. Hope you enjoy these.

    Perfect way to start the day. Cocoa powder is actually quite healthy, at least when the milk is left out of it. The almonds aren't just a beneficial alternative, it makes for a very tasty and distinct hot cocoa.

    Recipe #357471

    Low fat, high protein dessert i magically came up with after gym. Perfect post workout snack or for late at night when u don't want to be too naughty! :P Note: to make lactose free, just replace Skim Milk with Soy Milk or Lactose Free milk.

    Recipe #301524

    An online recipe using peas was inspiration, i didnt expect this to be so amazingly yummy! Goes great with a big and nice steak! well, havent tried the steak, but would imagine one right here on the plate!

    Recipe #245247

    This is a recipe that I enjoy when I just want to make a treat for myself but don't want the high calories and fat or the leftovers. I think they are really good, but don't expect them to taste like regular full-fat brownies! I'm mainly posting to get the nutrition facts, but I hope some of you out there will enjoy them as much as I do!

    Recipe #225036

    This is an interesting recipe adapted from one posted on It's the first time I've seen lychee's used in muffins!

    This is an old recipe from Elswet's mother. We have no idea where it came from, but the family name was McQueen. ;) This is the diabetic version. The alternate ["normal"] ingredients are listed as comments.

    Recipe #177523

    This is another of our breakfast favorites with reasonable sugar and low fat. It was adapted from Elswet's mother's Tried and True's. We use Altern [Walmart Brand] sweetener and plain [non-instant and non-quick] oatmeal. I'm so sorry people seem to be having bad experiences with this recipe. We use it all the time and love it. :] PLEASE NOTE: There is NOTHING wrong with this recipe! I make it all the time, and just made it again, using these directions. The recipe calls for 1 1/4 cups warm water PLUS 1 tablespoon warm water. Apparently, people are missing the 1 1/4 cups warm water, and only using 1 tablespoon, so DUH it won't work that way!

    This is a recipe from "The Best Slow Cooker Cookbook Ever" by Natalie Haughton

    This is one of Elswet's mother's recipes. We don't know where Her mother got it, but she was known for being an expert experimental Kitchen Witch. ;) This goes great with Elswet's Jasmine Rice, Recipe#109059.

    Recipe #173080

    Comes from Times do not include chill time.

    Recipe #146079

    DH and I love Sesame Tofyu, but the kids always turn their noses up at the idea. Since I am not a short order cook, I only make one "daily special" for dinner. DS got into the kitchen with me and we modified the recipe. This is what we created.

    One of my favorites is the BBQ chicken pasta at Semolina's. This recipe was copied from a cooking demonstration by one of the Semolina's chefs on the New Orleans PBS station. It's very close to what you get at Semolina's. I prefer chicken thighs but if you must boneless breasts work fine. P.S., if the best thing you ever tasted came out of a cassarole dish, this might be a little out there for you.

    I developed this recipe to fit into a meal that had to sit awhile before it could be eaten. I needed to use leeks and I love apples and leeks together so what to do? It is a pudding or crust-less quiche type of dish you choose your terminology. You may also place it into a slightly cooked crust for a quiche. It is versatile, simple and easy to make which are all advantages. It turned out both elegant and tasty, even to my picky children who went back for seconds.

    Recipe #418580

    A versatile stew base that can be switched to suit any palate. The tomatillos give this stew base a plenty of citrus flavors, so feel free to leave out the additional lime juice. The roasted poblanos provide a very subtle heat that is not at all overpowering. If more heat is desired, add a couple of chopped chipotles in adobo or 2-3 chopped serrano or jalapeño chiles. Serving Ideas: When the stew has cooked about halfway (step 4), add meat of choice: shredded roast chicken or thinly sliced boneless pork chops would be equally good. In the original version, I used 1 1/2 pounds of pre-cooked beef tongue; the richness of the meat paired quite well with the tart flavors in the stew. For a veggie version, stir in some cubed eggplant or winter squash or whatever protein substitute you like.

    Recipe #396455

    This cake is of course very very moist since it is a tres leches cake, but the added flavor of the chocolate and hazelnuts are wonderful. Trust me on the cranberries, they really add a sweet little surprise throughout the cake. The icing is really easy and very sweet and creamy. A small piece is all you need. Prep/cook time does not include chilling time.

    Made this for my freezer meal group this month and it turned out yummy! Adapted/combined several other recipes to come up with this. Stir fry everything in sesame oil or peanut oil for more flavor, then sprinkle with sesame seeds or peanuts at the very end. Very adaptable recipe - enjoy!

    Recipe #350077

    I love crepes, and I got very tired of eggs for breakfast after going low-carb. These are best with savory ingredients (because of the buckwheat), but you could fill with berries and sugar-free whipped cream instead.

    Recipe #347134

    This is a wonderful Dinner Roll recipe that we use for holidays and special occasions. Much better than store bought! I have copied it from a since not remembered cookbook and kept using it for years. We can't get through the holidays without it!
