This is a really interesting sounding recipe from Janet Reeves' "One Potato Two Potato" cookbook. It says that you can assemble them ahead and then pop them in the oven before serving. Would be a different way to eat potatoes!
This is one of our favorites. My husband always says that it tastes like it came from an upscale restaurant. The original recipe is from Sarah Schlesinger's "500 Practically Fat Free Pasta Recipes" which is a cookbook I love!
I found this online a few years ago. I have no idea on what web site, but it was attributed to a registered dietician named Jodie Shield. I lost the recipe and re-found it recently. My husband was thrilled to have this one back. My toddler said "Is just like pizza!" It's fabulous!
This is the yummy way we use up leftover sweet potatoes at my house. Often I'll bake sweet potato fries and have them leftover. I just put them in the food processor to puree them and then use them to make these. Prep time does not include sweet potato cooking time. Mine often have some pepper and salt in them because I had put them on the fries. But you can make these sweeter by adding 1/4 cup of sugar with the dry ingredients.
I grew up eating this at family parties and requested the recipe from my Aunt while I was in college. It is tasty and transports well if you're going to a potluck. Use it as a side dish or a vegetarian one dish meal with some crusty bread. I like it cold though it designed to be served hot.
This is a great recipe from Sue Gregg's "Breakfasts" cookbook that I found online a few years ago. I love looking for new healthy ingredients that I can cook and my kids will eat. The batter will be much thinner then your usual pancakes, as will the finished pancakes. But they have a great nutty flavor and are a fun alternative to regular pancakes. The serving size is approximate and depends on the size of your pancakes.
I'm always looking for ways to make desserts healthier. You could certainly use soy milk if you wanted to, and 1/2 cup of raisins can be added if you want. This recipe was originally found in Leanne Ely's "Healthy Foods." Prep time does not include cooking the rice as I usually have some leftover.
A really interesting sounding recipe from Janet Reeves' "One Potato Two Potato" that you cook on your griddle. I'm always looking for ways to use up bits of leftover things, and here is a great way to use leftover mashed potatoes.
Super fast stew for when you need something fast and healthy. This relies on canned goods so you can stock your pantry instead of running out for fast food. Adapted from a recipe in "Healthy Foods". You can use whatever spices you choose. Sometimes I add cumin, sometimes I add Italian seasoning. It depends on my mood and what types of beans and tomatoes I have added.
This is a really moist hearty sweet bread that my family loves. It is adapted from a recipe in the "More With Less Cookbook". I sometimes reduce the fat even more by using apple sauce instead of the oil, but I do like the texture the oil gives it. Also, you can add 1/2 cup chopped nuts if you would like. It gives it a nice crunch.
