    How much easier can you get? Veggies, rice, and beef, all layered in a casserole dish and cooked together in the oven. This is wholesome, satisfying comfort food – add a green salad and you’re good to go. From the More-With-Less Cookbook. I haven’t made it yet but it looks great.

    Recipe #154644

    When I was younger, I didn’t like broccoli, but I sure loved this casserole! I requested “green rice” all the time. Maybe it was because of all the cheese :) This is a good way to get veggies, whole grains, and calcium into picky kids’ mouths! Can either be a vegetarian main dish or a side dish.

    Recipe #154641

    Oh, yum! This fresh, wholesome pasta recipe is from the More-With-Less cookbook. Add a green salad, maybe some garlic bread, and you're good to go. I jacked up the spices, and although it calls for dried herbs, but I think it would be even better with fresh! A nice, simple dinner full of color and nutrition, not to mention FLAVOR.

    Recipe #154639

    These muffins are pretty much awesome. They’re really healthy and really good too! Lots of whole grains, not too much sugar, and a burst of cinnamon in every tender, delicious bite. My brothers love them. Good warm or cold. The original idea came from the More-With-Less Mennonite cookbook, but I’ve made enough changes to claim it as my own recipe. :) This recipe makes two dozen muffins, so just cut it in half if you have a smaller family.

    Recipe #154589

    This is a pleasingly simple side dish, sized for two people. Or add some shredded cooked chicken and serve over rice for a colorful, satisfying main dish. Stir-frying the veggies retains all the flavor, texture, and nutrition! From Light & Tasty’s Feb/March 2006 issue. I haven’t tried it yet, but it looks great.

    Recipe #154586

    Here’s a spicy, fun vegetarian entrée. The chunky chili would be good over baked white potatoes too, or maybe brown rice or cornbread. Lots of variation possibilities! From Light & Tasty’s Feb/March 2006 issue. I have not made this yet, but it sure looks good.

    Recipe #154495

    I found this wholesome, hearty bread on The Council of Elrond, a Tolkien-centered website which includes a treasure trove of fabulous recipes. AsliannQuinn, the site member who submitted the recipe, says: "Men and Elves can barely handle a slice of this Hobbiton staple without a big glass of milk." Well, whether you're a Tolkien fan or not, I'm sure you'll like this!

    Recipe #152505

    These awesome cookies have the Picky Sibling Seal of Approval. They're sweet, chewy, and just plain GOOD!, and because they're made with whole grains, honey and fruit -- no refined anything -- my dessert-loving brothers and sister can have as much as they want! (Well, within reason, of course.) Oh, and they're egg- and lactose free. :-) I bake these on a Pampered Chef baking stone, so the cooking time will probably be less if you use a regular metal baking sheet. This recipe is the result of playing around with MartiniQueeni's Ginger Oat Cookies -- they're definitely different enough to claim as my own recipe, but a lot of the ingredients and proportions are similar. So if you like these cookies, try hers too!

    Recipe #151649

    A colorful, healthy side dish for any meal. Chopped cilantro would be a great addition! This is from Light & Tasty’s Feb/March 2005 issue. I haven’t tried it yet, but I think it would be really good with burritos or fajitas.

    Recipe #151646

    This entrée packs a powerful flavor punch, but goes easy on the fat and calories. Serve it with rice and a green salad for a spiced-up weeknight dinner! Recipe is from Light & Tasty’s Feb/March 2006 issue. I haven’t tried it yet, but man, it sure looks good.

    Recipe #151645

    From Stonyfield Farm and Newman's Own -- this is what happened when Bertha the Cow went to Veracruz. Put on a sombrero and start to dance! "A creamy variation of an old time favorite." Low fat, flavorful, and fun! Serve with baked tortilla chips.

    Recipe #150335

    Yum! Serve this flavorful dip with toasted pita chips for a great low-fat appetizer or snack. Recipe courtesy of Chef Carrie Balkcom, Denver, CO.

    Recipe #150334

    I love love love blueberries, especially in the summer! When I next have the opportunity to pick fresh berries, I want to make this recipe. It is a bit different from the typical muffin recipe, and I'm sure it will be absolutely delicious.

    Recipe #140995

    These meatballs are simple, versatile, and packed with savory, garlicky flavor! YUM!! Use them for spaghetti, meatball sandwiches, Italian wedding soup, baked ziti...I think this recipe will serve 35 people. :-) It would also freeze well for those of you who do OAMC. The lady who gave me this recipe used to be a caterer, and she told me that one of her clients said these were better than his Italian wife's own meatballs! I guess that's saying something. Anyway, I really like these, and if you love garlic, so will you! Cooking time is for one batch of meatballs, but of course it will take longer to make all of them. Prep time doesn't include peeling and mincing the three heads of garlic, which is admittedly a somewhat lengthy process. Oh well, it's certainly worth it!!

    Recipe #132076

    If you prefer to bake with whole grains instead of white flour, then this is the pie crust for you! It's easy to put together and tastes great. This crust has a hearty flavor that pairs especially well with a sausage quiche, but it's great for fruit pies too! The recipe is from "Whole Foods For the Whole Family," a La Leche League cookbook.

    Recipe #131830

    This is really good to make when those summer squash are pouring in -- fresh veggies from the garden, mmm! Simple and delicious, perfect for a vegetarian main dish or a side dish for carnivores.

    Recipe #131703

    “How’s my peanut butter sandwich coming? You’re using chunky peanut butter, right? I won’t eat smooth! Make it an open face sandwich, too! Don’t put any jelly on it or anything! And use some normal bread! I don’t like those weird grain breads! Did you cut it diagonally? I like triangles better than rectangles, so be sure to cut it right!” --a classic from the Calvin and Hobbes collection “The Revenge of the Baby-sat,” by Bill Watterson.

    Recipe #131702

    This quick and easy breakfast offers health benefits from the blueberries' antioxidants, the oat bran's fiber and the calcium from low-fat milk and yogurt. The recipe is from Lance Armstrong's personal coach. A lot of your body's stored carbohydrates are burned while sleeping, and that is energy the brain needs to have a productive drink up!

    Recipe #130942

    My aunt brought this salad to a family gathering over Independence Day weekend, and I fell in love with it! She gave me the recipe, and here it is for your enjoyment :-) I added some cucumber and feta to the leftovers, and it was delicious.

    Recipe #128800

    Cinnamon is good. Apple is good. And whole wheat is good. So put them together, and you have a scrumptiously healthy breakfast! These all-natural pancakes would be lovely with warm maple syrup, or fresh fruit and a little cream. Recipe is from Light and Tasty’s April/May 2005 issue.
