Adapted from a recipe by Marie Oser

A delicious, creamy soup with no cream or added fat.


SDA Mini Meatloaves

Pack mixture into 8 lightly-sprayed muffin or custard cups. Bake in a preheated 350F oven for 25-30 minutes.

Maple-Pecan Pumpkin Pie

With or without the pecan topping, this decadent-tasting pumpkin pie is sure to be a crowd pleaser during the holidays…or anytime you get a craving for a treat! (NOTE: The pecan topping, obviously, adds fat. You can make a truly fat-free pie by using a fat-free crust and skipping the topping.)


Cranberry Stuffed Squash

Acorn squash stuffed with spiced cranberries and pears.


Candied Yams

Although I’m not a big fan of yams or “sweet potatoes” I tried this recipe, and I love them this way. My family was impressed. It takes a bit of preparation, but well worth it. The house smelled wonderful while they were baking.


Barley Pumpkin Soup

To serve, ladle soup into individual bowls. Sprinkle with pumpkin or sunflower seeds


Mixed Squash and Mushroom Sauté with Quinoa

For a delicious fall meal, serve this with sautéed soy sausage links and a salad of mixed baby greens and tomatoes.


Toasted Bulgur with Vermicelli and Fall Vegetables

A hearty side dish for everyday or holiday meals.

Holiday Stuffed Pumpkin

This is the recipe I have used for my Thanksgiving centerpiece for over 25 years. It has always been a favorite with everyone who has celebrated the holidays with us over the years.


Orange-Cranberry Sauce

Delicious raw cranberry sauce with orange and walnuts.


Cranberry Sauce 2

This all-natural cranberry sauce recipe uses dates for sweetness rather than sugar.
