Slow Cooker Boneless Turkey Breast
I used 3 lbs. of boneless skinless turkey breast. I didn't have onion soup mix, so I just put all the other spices, plus sage (just eye-balled all of the amounts) into a crockpot on low with 1/2 cup water. It cooked in less that 4 hours. Once done, I put it on "warm" and put some pats of grassfed butter in the crockpot. That kicked it up another needed some fat in there - b/c as you know turkey breast has almost no fat, and can be a bit dry. Anyway - GREAT recipe - even tho I didn't follow it much, it was my inspiration. Thank you!

Easy Garlic Broiled Chicken
This recipe is super easy and very flavorful. I used bone-in, skin-on thighs. These were the tweaks I made to suit our tastes: Added lots of cayenne pepper, added more black pepper, added onion powder. I put some of the butter mixture under the skin, a little on the bottom and tons on the top/skin. As another reviewer suggested I baked it at 350 for 30+ minutes, and then put under the broiler. I wouldn't suggest using the broiler if you have the old school kind like I do. (It's under the oven.) I barely had it in there for a minute (as I wanted to crisp the top) and it nearly burned the topping. I would have been so bummed. I will skip the broiling step next time - as it doesn't even need it. My fiance and I loved this. He said it's a keeper! Yum! I will make again. Thank you for this delicious low-sugar dish!

Chicken Stir-Fry
This is awesome! Thanks for the recipe. I used a mix of coconut aminos and Brag's Liquid Aminos because that's all I had in the house. I cut the brown sugar by a tablespoon or so, and I double the veggies. The veggies I used were: broccoli, onions, baby portobello mushrooms, celery and red peppers. Thanks for sharing this recipe! I love the use of ginger. This is just what I was looking for. Tons of flavor and pretty healthy. My fiance loved it!
