Single Serving Mixed Fruit/Yogurt Smoothie
Very Good 4.4/5
(73 ratings)

Editor's note: Use your favorite milk or yogurt in this recipe. Use ice cubes instead of water for a frozen treat.

Most of the smoothie recipes I've seen are for 3-6 servings. This is a good smoothie for just 1 person. It can be made with a stick blender instead of getting the big one dirty for just one drink!

This is a family favorite. The panko is such a wonderful light breading that we enjoy more than regular breadcrumbs.

Slow Cooker Kentucky Burgoo
Very Good 4.1/5
(56 ratings)

This spring time stew is a must have at any Derby party! Traditionally made with pork, beef, chicken, and rabbit, I've added more veggies and lightened the meat. The best part: This is a slow cooker recipe, so the burgoo will be ready when the horses are loading into the gate.
