This is my favorite dressing now! It was recommended to me by my boss, and it's so fresh and yummy and so easy to make! I hope you like it too! Note: The original recipe calls for 1 extra-large egg yolk, but I don't care for raw eggs, so I leave it out, which the recipe says is fine to do. I just added it as an option.
This refreshing drink was given to me by a friend to put in our cookbook our Houston group put together to raise money to send care packages to deployed troops. It's yummy and easy and great on a hot summer's day! I guesstimated on the servings...I could probably drink the whole pitcher myself, but I thought if I put "one serving" I might get funny looks!
I got this recipe from the Biggest Loser Cookbook, and I love that it's so easy and that it's a low calorie and fat free treat! *Note: Cooking time is the freezing time* The cookbook says 25 calories, 0 g fat, but I think that was calculated without the whipped topping.
Another recipe from the coupon inserts from the Sunday Houston Chronicle. This is quick and easy and it's great as a simple snack while watching football, NASCAR, etc. I like to garnish with sour cream and guacamole, but feel free to use your own toppings!
This is similar to the other recipes posted here, but with a couple changes. I went ahead and posted it, as my Grandma made these every year at Christmastime and they are extremely addictive!!! I guessed on the servings...if you're like me, you make a pig of yourself and don't share, so it's a 1 serving recipe!!! ;) **Note, due to a few reviewers saying these were too oily, I changed the oil amount!**
My mom got this recipe years ago from someone she worked with...she made it at Christmas and holidays quite a bit. I have never made it, but I know it tastes yummy!! If you like alot of peanuts to candy ratio, use the whole 1 1/2 cups peanuts (or more if you like)...it's purely personal preference!
This was given to me by a Marine mom to put in our cookbook that we are selling to raise funds to send care packages to the troops. I tried it out one HOT Texas night and it was too good not to post! I hope you like it...
I got this from the coupon inserts in our Sunday paper, and it turned out to be a great snack to eat while watching football, NASCAR, etc. Easy to make, fairly inexpensive and something a little different.
I found this recipe on Sparkrecipes.com and while it's similar to many others on here, I like that it is lower calorie so it fits well in my lifestyle. DH just loves it too, so that's a HUGE plus! The original recipe called for low fat cream, but I used the fat free (the kind in the tub) with no problems.
This is from JoAnna Lund's cookbook "Cooking Healthy Across America". It's so easy to prepare! I used boiled chicken that I boiled and shredded the day before so this made for a quick and easy weeknight meal. We served it over Texas Toast but I'm sure it'd be just as good over noodles, rice or mashed potatoes. Note: the recipe calls for 1 1/2 c of peas, but the family doesn't like peas that much so I just used about 3/4 cup.
This is my version of "The Stubbs", which is a breakfast sandwich named after former Dallas Cowboys player Daniel Stubbs, and is from the Coppell Deli, which became a Dallas, TX mini-legend in the early to mid-1990s as the favorite breakfast place of several Cowboys players. We usually eat this as dinner, as these sandwiches are pretty big...just like everything in Texas!
I got this in the coupon inserts from a Sunday edition of the Houston Chronicle. I didn't see anything exactly like it, so I decided to post it. This makes a great breakfast or dinner. It's easy to prepare and easy on the pocketbook, too!
I found this recipe on SparkRecipes.com and loved it! I didn't see it on here so decided to share it...it's a lower calorie, quick and easy weeknight recipe that we think tastes delicious! I used frozen chicken tenderloins in place of the breasts and it worked out fine!
The jalapeno cream cheese adds the special kick to this recipe...I've made it without and it's good, but definately use it if you can find it!! Sometimes I will double the recipe for a light dinner, or make as below for a snack or appetizer. NOTE: Sadly, I don't think they make jalapeno cream cheese anymore, so I usually just use regular cream cheese and chopped jalapenos...use as many or as little jalapenos you want for your desired heat level.
This yummy recipe comes from Rachael Ray...I saw her make it one night on "30 Minute Meals" and I couldn't wait to try it. It makes a lot, so it's perfect for the hungry kids and DH! Don't let the number of ingredients or the steps fool you...this is a quick and easy meal to make on a busy weeknight!
I found this in the Sunday coupon inserts of the Houston Chronicle, and after changing it up just a smidgen, we really enjoy it as a quick and easy and inexpensive meal! It's a drier casserole, so if you like creamy ones, you may want to add more milk. I'm just posting my version. I think you could probably make this with tuna for a yummy variation, also! I hope you enjoy!
This recipe calls for reduced sodium, fat free chicken broth and fat free evaporated milk, but I've also made it with regular chicken broth and regular evaporated milk. Good both ways...and nice to know that something can be healthy and still taste yummy! I also use the thin cut pork chops just as a matter of preference. I got this recipe in the mail on a recipe card from some company that wanted me to buy their cookbook...please, I have Zaar! What do I need with their cookbooks...but I sure like this recipe of theirs!
