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!
My husband and father-in-law love this! It's a bit time-consuming, but worth the spectacular results. Truly a handsome dish! From one of those Pillsbury mini-magazine things you buy at the supermarket. Please note that you can use leftover mashed potatoes as well, or make homemade if you really hate instant!
This is a Pampered Chef recipe I had recently at a party I hosted. It is incredible! It is absolutely to die for! Prep time includes baking the pie shell, but not cooling it. Cooking time is dressing the pizza.
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 so tasty, and healthy too! We love black beans. Prep time does not include soaking and cooking the beans, but does include cooking the chicken. You can, of course, substitute canned beans, just drain them. The soup can also be frozen in a sturdy plastic container, or a ziploc bag. To serve, defrost and heat in microwave or on stovetop.
This is a great salad! I developed it while in Phase 1 of the Fat Smash Diet, developed by Dr. Ian Smith. The diet is featured on VH1's Celebrity Fit Club. I am so addicted to this show! Hope you enjoy the salad. Prep time is how long it takes to chop, mix, etc. Cook time is chill time.
This is from the "Fix-It and Forget-It Cookbook" for slow-cookers. I love this, and do my husband and son. Make sure to add the vinegar at the end, it makes a big, delicious difference! We like ours with fresh cornbread.
As you can tell by looking at my recipes, we love black beans. We really like soup too! This is delicious! Great for a cold day. Recipe from "America's Best Slow Cooker Recipes." Cooking time is if you cook soup on Low.
Recipe from 400 Calorie Fix. According to the author, each serving has 340 calories, 3 g total fat, 53 carbohydrates, 8 g dietary fiber, and 33 g protein. This recipe requires at least 1 hour of marinating time, which is included in prep time.
I found this recipe on Allrecipes. It is so delicious! Perhaps not for those on a low-fat diet, but all in all, pretty good for you. Moist, chocolate-y and so good. My husband hates zucchini, but he will eat these. Prep time does not include shredding zucchini. At the advice of a reviewer, I am posting this note. If you find that the cocoa will clump if you mix it with the vanilla and zucchini, you can add it instead with the flour and other dry ingredients. Enjoy!
This is so simple and so good. There are lots of fancied-up versions of this out there, but this is how I make mine. The kids like it too. I know, kids shouldn't have coffee....but if I want any peace, they get theirs too! The coffee amount depends on the size of your mug. I also brew my coffee kind of strong, but use your normal coffee. The cook time is time to brew your coffee. Enjoy!
I love this salad!! So good, and just perfect in the summer. Definitely a full meal. This makes one lunch-size version of the cobb salad at Bob Evans. The onion used to be in the cobb salad, but then they took it out. I think it's really good in the salad though. The restaurant version has 13 ww points for this size. Prep time assumes chicken and egg are cooked.
These are delicious! And much more cost-effective than buying chicken nuggets. Nice and juicy, yet crisp on the outside, too. Yummy, yummy! For an Italian twist, omit chili powder and substitute Italian seasonings. Makes two dinner servings, or 4 lunch/appetizer servings.
Simple recipe, but oh so good. Adapted from a recipe in the Southern Living 1981 Cookbook, month of April. Nice to have at a cookout. Nice, low-cal dish. Cook time is chill time, and prep time includes letting the cucumbers rest.
