Yummy - What's your Favorite Recipe? Tell us Below!


One of my New Year's resolutions is to start eating healthy.  I've been searching different websites for low-fat and heart healthy recipes that I can try at home.  I've found quite a few. I've been using my younger daughter Rachel as my guinea pig. So far so good. She has actually liked the dishes that I have tried so far.

A great place to store your recipes is in one of my custom made recipe boxes. I have two designs so far at the Cokie Pop Paper Boutique website.  Check them out when you have time. My newest recipe box is inspired by bright colors and a "vintage" mom theme.


Another great place to find great recipes is at the Food Network. I love Sandra Lee and Paula Deen. Sandra's dishes are "semi-homemade" which means that she combines 70% ready-made products with 30% fresh products. Her dishes are wonderful and they are easy to make.

Now Ms. Paula loves her "BUTTER" doesn't she?  She is also so fun to watch on T.V. She makes cooking fun.  I do change her recipes up a bit and subtitute fat-free ingredients into her dishes instead of the more fatty ones.  In the end they still taste GREAT and are HEART HEALTHY!

I love Paula's banana pudding recipe called "Not Yo Mama's Banana Pudding". Instead of using the traditional Vanilla Wafers. Paula uses the Pepperidge Farm cookies instead. Here's the link to the recipe if you'd like to try it at home.

I don't want to seem nosey, but If you really are
interested in a "healthier" diet, you should do some research on fats first, low fat things are actually worse for you. A good book to read would be Good Calories, Bad Calories by Gary Taubes, good luck!

I love the New Box and I love that pudding. I have also been looking for a new way to get healthy for the year and I have found the Three Day Diet and in the pass I did go from a size 22 to a 14 in jr. I have gotten also the Grapefruit Diet and many of our co-workes have lost a lot on it.
