This is quick and very addictive. The original recipe came from a magazine, I 'm not sure which one. It's probably from bon appetit. I have so many from that magazine that I've saved. I have tweaked it a little to suit my way of doing things.
This is from the May 2009 bon appetit magazine. They did a story about heritage pork which is tastier, smaller and marbled better. I"ve just been using regular chops when I make this but if you have access to heritage pork, I'm sure it would take this recipe to a higher level. I posted this just the way it was written in the magazine but I always cook my chops for longer than this recipe says. There's just no way to get them fully cooked in that short amount of time. I basically double their times for the chops. You can figure on this taking a good 40 minutes if you're using the thick chops that are called for.
Here's a nice little vinaigrette that I found on the eating well website amongst their diabetic recipes. They say you should do this one in the blender so it will be creamy. I did and it was perfect. Make this one several hours ahead or the day before so the flavors can blend.
I found this recipe on the Eating Well website amongst the diabetic friendly recipes. It's supposed to be an appetizer but I served it over a nice salad as a cool, refreshing summer dinner. We loved it. The shrimp are super simple to prepare and they tasted great hot or cold although they are meant to be served cold. Serves 12 as an appy but 6 as a main course.
This is a nice way to serve round steak. The long cooking times tenderize the meat quite a bit and it's very tasty, too. I serve this over buttered noodles with corn on the side for a very satisfying complete meal.
It's challenging trying to eat right, especially when there are so many wonderful recipes on this site to try! This one is delicious but still lite. It's low in pretty much everything so it fits into several eating plans including those for diabetics.
Once in a while, we still have to have a rich, tasty, dessert
even when we're diabetic or dieting. This one has about 1/3 less carbs than a regular lemon velvet cake. It's still a little high if you're watching your carbs so mind your serving sizes. It's NOT low carb but it is significantly lower than regular.
How about a new twist on citrus chicken? Instead of lemon, this one uses grapefruit juice for a whole new angle on an old favorite. I loved this simple, tasty dish. It's perfect for the family or company.
What a great dressing this one is. It's very thick and almost like a dip. To thin it down, I add a little bit of milk until I get it to the consistency I like. You can do the same thing and make it just the way you like it- thick or thin- you choose.
