Fall is the perfect time to break out this Low Calorie Pumpkin Pie recipe! I love all things pumpkin, and pie, so to be able to have a low calorie version that I can enjoy guilt free during the fall season is awesome! A piece of this pie clocks in at only 172 calories. With a calorie count like that, dessert first is in order!
Now that Halloween is over, my home has switched in to full holiday mode. Yep, I’m one of those people that don’t mind that it’s the fist week of November and they are already playing Christmas music in the store. I love the feel of the holiday season. Cheer and goodwill, everyone seems to be a little nicer and happy. And I know that I will get to see some extended family that I don’t normally get to see during the rest of the year. Which means that I have a lot of cooking to do during the entire season. Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day cooking wise, and I always like to make a big holiday breakfast for my family. One of my favorite recipes is my Biscuits and Gravy Casserole Recipe! It feeds a crowed, is easy to make, and tastes great. It’s perfect for your next holiday (or anytime really!) meal. I hope you enjoy it as much as my family does. Continue reading

It is that time of year when you want a warm hug from within. You reach for the Folgers in your cup and think today is the day I want a twist on the old classic. I deserve a treat. I have to run the children to school after making sure they have washed, put on clean clothes, flossed and brushed for at least two minutes, I have paid the bills, gotten dinner in the crockpot. It is now my time. You know the time of day that you make something special for yourself, and you sit back and enjoy the memories. You know life is about memories. Continue reading

My dear friend, Laura, shared a recipe with me years ago called ” Sweet and sour Chicken”. It calls for 1 lb of boneless, skinless chicken breasts, 1 small bottle of Catalina dressing, 1 jar of peach preserves, and 1 envelope of onion soup mix. Simply mix together, pour over chicken breasts and bake. I have experimented with this basic recipe many different ways. Using pineapple preserves and the juice and zest of 1 lime creates the refreshing flavors of the Caribbean. An Asian-inspired variation uses orange marmalade and soy sauce topped with crispy chow mein noodles or wontons.
This year I am trying to eat healthy meals that are easy to make. I do not want to spend my time in the kitchen but I want to create meals that matter. I want healthy, tasty meals, that do not require a lot of dishes. I came up with this recipe. Continue reading
The busier life gets, the more I use my slow cooker. I like meals that taste baked, but are actually made in the slow cooker which is a very easy method of cooking. This casserole bakes slowly with very little moisture. I was skeptical, at first, because this recipe didn’t call for any liquid in the slow cooker. But, I gave it a try, and I’m so glad I did. The edges browned beautifully giving the dish a crispy texture. This recipe allows for substitutions, too. Use your favorite “cream of” soup; use ground beef or turkey instead of sausage; use unpeeled or peeled potatoes; vary the cheese using Swiss or spice it up by using pepper Jack. This is our favorite Sausage & Potato Slow Cooker Supper .Continue reading
