These baked onion rings are incredible! There is no way that you feel like you are eating healthy and low fat when you eat these. This is a slight adaptation of a Yahoo Health recipe. I dip mine in ketchup but my husband is a purist who prefers his plain. And while the prep time can be a little long, make it a social time. I talk to everyone in the house while I make these, and then sit back and enjoy how great they smell as they cook!
This is a super fast pizza crust I fall back on when there is absolutely no time. It makes a thick doughy crust. I top it with a jar of spaghetti sauce, shredded mozzarella, and veggies for a quick and reasonably healthy meal the kids will eat! Modified from "500 Fat Free Recipes"
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.
When I substituted some of the butter with applesauce in a previous recipe, it actually made the bread more moist. I put one loaf in the freezer, but had to take it out within 24 hours because the first was devoured!
Boil your eggs, and eat them, too!! This is a great egg salad, and is 3 ww points a serving, not including any bread. I like mine on toasted oat bran bread, but I'm sure rye bread would be tasty too!! My dog gets the discarded yolks! Prep time assumes eggs are already boiled. Modified from a Weight Watchers recipe.
This is a simple, delicious salad. It is so good when tomatoes are at their best. (Indiana tomatoes are my personal favorites...but I'm biased.) It's great for a cookout. This is from the Southern Living 1981 Cookbook, from the month of May. Cooking time is chilling time.
This is an adaptation of several recipes... I liked the idea of asparagus and mushrooms, and asparagus with lemon, but all the recipes called for butter and herbs and such. This is very simple. I bet it really isn't a recipe, but hey, it works for me!
This is delicious! It's Weight Watcher friendly. Each serving is 5 points. This is a great way to use up your odds and ends in the fridge; in fact, that's how I came up with the recipe! The key is to use a light hand with the cooking spray, so as not to add points.
