Wondering what to do with all of your cherry tomatoes? Want a quick, easy delicious fresh tasting sauce for pasta or chicken? Try my quick and easy Roasted Cherry Tomato Sauce!

Homemade Spicy Chicken Sausage
Updated October 17, 2019; originally published on October 26, 2017
This healthy Homemade Spicy Chicken Sausage is a big hit at my house. My kids will even fry it up on their own because they love it so much. It's great over nachos, delicata squash, rice, and zucchini noodles. It also makes a fast appetizer in my Lasagna Appetizers. This recipe is pretty spicy, so if you don't like spice, then dial it down a bit by using less of the spicy seasonings.
Cheaper than buying it in the ...

On the Go! Crustless Chipotle Egg Cups
I love these Crustless Chipotle Egg Cups (or as some people call them breakfast egg muffin cups). They are my "go to" for an easy meal prep breakfast. You can make a batch in under an hour, freeze them for later and have a quick breakfast for 24 days! I eat one for breakfast with a banana and a hot cup of tea. I even take them in a cooler frozen when traveling.

It is a variation of a quick and easy recipe I often do for my kids when I'm in a hurry. Normally I just throw together: black beans, chicken, a chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, onions, garlic, tomatoes and serve it in ...
Healthier Homemade Apple Dumplings
I love homemade apple dumplings! Recently I pulled out my mom's recipe from the Betty Crocker cookbook, (some of you know the exact cookbook I'm talking about - the red checkered one with the torn edges, pictures of women in 1950's with their aprons. And the new "modern" kitchen? It makes me chuckle every time I look at it). On a whim, I decided to put their apple dumpling recipe into WW Recipe Builder - 28 points or 802 calories per apple dumpling! Really? Are you kidding me? That's way too ...
Cranberry Orange Scones
About this recipe
These cranberry orange scones are definitely not your average English tea scone. They are made with fresh cranberries and are light, fluffy, moist and delicious-more like biscuits. I do believe they are best the first day. Of course you can eat them the next day and even freeze them, (we'll talk about that later) but in my opinion, they are best right out of the oven!
I modified my original recipe slightly to make them a bit more healthier. Decreasing the ...

This is one of my favorite and go-to recipes when I need an easy and quick meal. Years ago when I published my 9th cookbook, Entertaining with Amy, I created this Quick and Easy Cilantro Pork Pot recipe for times when you needed an easy meal for your family that everyone likes. Basically you dumped all the ingredients in the crock pot and cooked it for 6-8 hours. However times have changed a bit, so I updated the recipe using my Instant Pot and ...
