Retake Homemade: Hearty Tuna Casserole

I swear, I’m about to give up on tuna casserole as a dish to be served in our house.  No matter what variation I make, hubby just doesn’t like it.  No matter, this current incarnation made ME happy.  It is an adaptation of this Light But Hearty Tuna Casserole from Taste of Home.  I’d actually […]

Lightened Chicken Rotel

Chicken rotel is one of my favorite comfort foods.  It is addictive and wonderful and disappears at the speed of light in our house.  So much so that the first four times I made it, I didn’t get a picture made.  Well, I’ve been on a restricted calorie diet this last week or so as […]

Retake Homemade: Cowboy Casserole

This one was an adaptation of a recipe from the August/September 2010 Taste of Home (pg. 43).  I loved the concept of this recipe, but I needed to make a few adjustments in the name of healthy and grown up.  Tater tots are a thing of the school cafeteria and do not come into my […]

Greek Poppyseed Chicken Casserole

In my subbing greek yogurt for sour cream kick, I used some of the Chobani yogurt I got from the company to make a Greeked up version of Poppyseed Chicken Casserole.  This one’s loaded with more veggies than my original Poppyseed Chicken Casserole.  The end result was quite different than what I’m used to.  Nice […]

Greek Yogurt Corn Casserole

I’ve been on a kick lately of substituting Greek yogurt for sour cream.  One of my favorite sides, that I usually only make for holidays, is corn casserole.  It’s not what you’d call light, but it’s OMG so good.  The Greek yogurt was a fantastic addition and we demolished this between the two of us […]

Hashbrown Breakfast Casserole

I never eat much in the way of interesting for breakfast during the week.  I’m not a morning person, so breakfast is an autopilot affair most of the time.  Scrambled eggs, toast, and tea, every day.  But weekends, usually Sunday mornings, hubby and I like to have something more interesting.  He’s a big fan of […]

Sausage and Squash Casserole

I’m not sure how I haven’t actually posted this before.  It’s a classic in our household.  It’s a recipe I adapted from my friend who tends to cook like Paula Deen so I’ve lightened it up by using turkey sausage, reduced fat cheese, neufchatel cheese, and light sour cream.  It’s a delicious meal all in […]

Mexican Spoon Bread

Continuing in the theme of recipes from Simple and Delicious, this one comes from the Jan/Feb 2010 issue (pg. 47).  It’s one where their test kitchen cut down the fat and calories.  According to them, it makes 6 3/4 cup servings at 329 calories and 16 grams of fat.  The end results were…well, I’m sorry […]
