Paleo One Minute Muffin

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2014
I prefer my muffins with just a tad sweetness to them, so I added Stevia sweetened Greek yogurt on top. For those who don't use dairy, you might top yours with coconut yogurt. This made for a fast and easy breakfast. ***Update next day - Since this recipe made two, I refrigerated one. The next day I ate it cold, topped with Greek yogurt, and blueberries. A whole different flavor and very good.

Healthier (but still awesome) Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2014
I love having all the vegetables in the same pot as the roast! I need to remember to salt the individual veggies next time. I cooked the roast on high for 4 hours, using Campbell's Healthy Request Cream of Mushroom Soup and the diced onions. Then I added the rest of the veggies. I did cut the small red potatoes in half and just cut strips of carrots rather than slicing them. The mixture cooked another 5 hours, making a total of 9 hours on high. Delicious and easy!

Pumpkin Shake

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2014
I love all things pumpkin. The only thing this needed for me was sweetener. I added two pkgs. of Truvia. *I made a variation of this the next day. I added two more ice cubes and a half scoop of Jay Robb vanilla whey protein powder. Nice variation.

Slow Cooker Chicken Tetrazzini

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2014
Tender, creamy, delicious dish. I used boneless, skinless chicken thighs and cooked them on low since I knew I would be gone longer than 3 hours. Hint for those who think it is too salty: don't salt your noodles while they are cooking. Instead, wait and see if you need the extra salt at the table. I don't need to salt my noodles at all when I use this to top them.

Savory Apricot Chicken with Vegetable Rice

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2014
Loved this! My daughter thought it was like a sweet and sour type dish. I used peach preserves and can't believe this would be any better with apricot. Will definitely make this again!

Asian Pear and Strawberry Smoothie

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2014
A delicious way to use overripe pears! Loved it! All flavors came through without one overpowering another. I did use Truvia, though, instead of sugar. Love the pretty color of this smoothie.

Low Carb Yellow Squash Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2014
I followed the directions in this recipe with the exception of 1) using a mix of yellow squash and zucchini, 2) using my Paderno to cut the squash into "noodles," and 3) adding diced, cooked chicken, making this an all-in-one casserole. I loved the texture the almonds gave to the dish! It was a delicious, fresh tasting entree for dinner.

Overnight Refrigerator Oatmeal

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2014
This is a great baseline recipe for you to tweak according to what your tastes are or what you happen to have available. It's easy enough to change out the type of milk, yogurt, or fruit. I used unsweetened almond milk, non-fat vanilla Greek yogurt, and bananas in one small jar and blueberries in the other. I also needed some Truvia to sweeten it up a bit. Half the recipe was plenty for my breakfast.

Simple French Toast in a Cup

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2014
The whole purpose of anything you cook in a mug in the microwave is to make eating quick and easy. This recipe does that with a few easy-to-remember ingredients that cook up just fine in the microwave. The cinnamon is perfect for me, but if I were to fix this again, I would add a little more sugar. Like another reviewer, I stirred the bread into the liquid. Seems as though it would set better if all cubes were slightly moist. Most mug recipes are for eating quickly or on-the-go, but this morning I wanted to treat myself, so I turned my French toast cup out onto a pretty tea and toast set and slowly enjoyed my breakfast.

Pork Carnitas with Cilantro Tomatillo Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2014
I followed the recipe exactly, adding 1 cup water in step 2. The cooking times were perfect. This was my first experience eating pork carnitas and tomatillos, and I am happy to report that it was a positive experience. I added sour cream to mine, and my husband added haberno sauce to his.

Sweet and Spicy Salmon with Grapefruit Salsa

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2014
I made the salsa, tasted it, and decided it was going to be entirely too tart and too hot, even though I used sweet red grapefruit and only 3/4 of the jalapeno. However, I decided to taste it with the salmon first. I am so glad I did! Somehow, the flavors were perfect with the fish, and no extra sweetener was needed. Nor was it too hot. How is that possible? I don't know, but I had to have a bite of salsa with every bite of salmon. Very complementary, and it was pretty enough for guests.

Chicken Zoodle Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2014
Another great way to use my Padermo and zoodles! Love this soup! The seasonings are perfect. I used left-over turkey breast that I added at the end as well as zoodles left from last night's dinner.

Spinach Alfredo Sauce (Better than Olive Garden®)

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2014
This is a very quick and forgiving sauce. I had less than the needed amount of cream, so I added just a little more cream cheese. I also used some fresh spinach I had frozen for smoothies. I just followed the general instructions, added some left-over turkey breast from the night before, and served it over pasta for my husband and zucchini noodles for me. Delicious!

Zucchini 'Noodles'

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2014
My daughter gave me a spirooli, which cuts the zucchini and yellow squash into spirals. This was the recipe I chose to make "zoodles." I loved the flavor and decided I prefer squash cut this way rather than in rounds. So much better and slightly crispy rather than soggy and limp! The first batch I followed the recipe exactly. On the second batch I decided to see what the difference would be if I omitted steps 1 and 2. No noticeable difference, so I'll take the shortcut next time. I also served the cooked squash topped with a garlic and basil tomato reduction. Another delicious way to eat it!

Cherry Vanilla Smoothie

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2014
A good base recipe that easily adjusts to one's own personal preferences. I used almond milk instead of soy and Truvia instead of agave. The cherry flavor was nice for a change.

Simple Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2014
I liked this and was very pleasantly surprised that the ground turkey didn't stand out, probably due to all the spices. I used petite diced tomatoes instead of crushed, and I didn't mash the beans or add the black pepper. I did add more salt. My husband liked the fact that this chili was soupy. Definitely a good choice for dinner tonight!

Honey-Garlic Slow Cooker Chicken Thighs

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2014
Easy to make and uses pantry staples. Always a very good thing! I doubled the chicken thighs (but not the rest of the ingredients) and put half in the freezer for a quick meal when I need it.
