Italian Chicken Tenders & Portabellas
(no ratings)

Cookbook creator says: Yummy and low-cal. The portabellas have a strong mushroomy taste and make this a very satisfying meal. Also, by making fresh breadcrumbs with healthy wholegrain bread you are avoiding all the preservatives, etc. in dried breadcrumbs.

Egg in a Hole
Very Good 4.1/5

Spinach with Nutmeg
(no ratings)

Cookbook creator says: The nutmeg is a complimentary flavor for the spinach. I usually prefer fresh spinach, but this is a good fall-back recipe if you have some frozen spinach on hand.

Mashed Celery Root (Celeriac)

(no ratings)

Cookbook creator says: The raisin bran 'melts' and becomes a delicious bed for the soft cinnamony apple slices. A tasty breakfast treat or serve as a dessert with a little whipped cream, creme fraiche (my favorite) or other whipped topping.

Almond Carrot Cupcakes
(no ratings)

My mother in law in Switzerland often made a delicious flour-free carrot cake for special occasions. Unfortunately, I did not get her recipe, but I've come up with this one through trial and error and it's pretty close. You can also make it in a small bundt pan or spring form pan - just increase the baking time by 10-15 minutes.

Mini Raspberry Trifles
(no ratings)

This is a fairly small portion, but I'd rather have something with "real" ingredients than a big portion of yukky diet fake stuff.

Guilt Free Bread Pudding
(no ratings)

An alternative to calorie loaded bread pudding. This custard has a little bit of bread in it to give it "body". Great for dessert topped with some fruit or a tsp. of maple syrup.
