Pure comfort…

FRENCH ONION TURKEY MEATLOAF OR French Onion Soup Turkey Meatloaf – ’cause all the flavors are in there.  Yes, they are. This takes a little longer because you do have to caramelize the onions, but it’s so, so worth it.  Just for the smell in your house alone!  You need two medium onions (about 1…

Because…pudding!!

BLUEBERRY LIME COCONUT CHIA PUDDING Luscious, decadent, creamy, lite, zingy, cool…I could go on. This chia pudding is just plain refreshing.  For breakfast, snack, dessert – yes, lets! I recently started eating mostly vegan – trying for 90% on average.  (I was vegetarian before that, so if I decide to have something off the vegan…

If you love peanut butter like I love peanut butter…

PEANUT BUTTER PIE WOW.  This is one rich pie.  I made it into a PIE once, actually…since then I freeze it in slightly rounded 1/4 cup portions and stick it away for a frozen nap. (Out of sight, out of mind……  oh, who am I kidding?  I know it’s there, but it’s harder to binge…

Might not be pretty…but it IS pretty good!

OLD-FASHIONED GLAZED MEATLOAF (First…let me apologize for the hunk ‘o meatloaf-on-a-plate.  Good grief.   I had served dinner to Hon and he ooed and awed over it so I then felt like I should have taken a photo so I could post the recipe.  That was all that was left.   Don’t worry.  It’s really,…

Add a little Beautiful to your dinner!

CITRUS-GLAZED SALMON WITH AVOCADO SALSA Impress someone with very little effort with this gorgeousness!  Fast and easy this dish has the lightest flavors, but they all work to make it spicy-sweet and the salmon buttery-smooth.  If you can, using fresh salmon with this is the best. (The only reason my salsa looks sooooo gorgeous is…

BBQ-ready!

STOVE-TOP BAKED BEANS These are a little different, but so good!  Not overly sweet, but with that smokey, molassesy flavor that we expect in baked beans.  They are full of complex carbs and are the prefect compliment to your BBQed proteins. Make them ahead of time ’cause they just get better as  “leftovers”! ~~~~  …

Spring Green!

KEY LIME MOUSSE You know the taste…that fresh Key Lime Pie, tart and tangy, yet so sweet it makes your teeth hurt! Well, here’s the filling and you’ll never miss the crust OR the sugar. It’s one of my older recipes and starts with no-sugar-added Sweetened Condensed Milk – and the rest practically makes itself….

Take out? Not.

ORANGE CHICKEN In case you thought this was a thing of the past…think again!  No sugar added, high in protein, fill-you-up goodness that will stand up to the restaurant stuff any day of the week. A pot of Jasmine rice for your family and a crisp green salad with toasted almonds is all you need….

Sunday Brunch never had it so good!

CHEESE BLINTZES My low-carb crepes are good for so many things, but this is the original use I had in mind.  Sweet, rich, yet light and fluffy – an indulgent treat that will make you feel very special! Add any flavoring or extract you like to the cheesecake filling and top with berries, sliced fresh…

Deviled Eggs…yet another way

SOUTHWEST DEVILED EGGS I mean, really…can you have too many deviled eggs?!  This is on old recipe that I’ve made for a long time and love.  How spicy depends on your taste, but when the snack attack comes around, you’ll be ready with a plate of these in the fridge. ~~~~     10 hard-boiled…
