Vietnamese Country Chicken Soup

This recipe can be made in a slow cooker or on the stove top (set to low). If you cook it on the stove top, be sure to stir occasionally to avoid any burning on the bottom.

Also, please feel free to add more or less coconut milk, lime juice, jalapeno and herbs to suit your taste!

Chocolate Chip Banana Nut Muffins

A slight twist on Chicklet14580's Lowfat Banana Muffins - I had to make a few tweaks and add some chocolate & pecans to get my self-proclaimed muffin-hater husband to even taste these. Now he loves them with coffee for breakfast!

Quick tip: Occasionally I throw ripe bananas in the freezer to use for cooking/smoothies, etc. If you thaw two med. size frozen bananas in the microwave for about 30-45 seconds, you'll have the perfect consistency for the muffins, with very little need for mashing. Also, because I only had 3/4 C of bananas on hand, I substituted the remainder of the cup (the original recipe called for) with applesauce and the muffins came out perfectly moist. You could make the recipe with 1 C. Bananas & 1/2 C. Applesauce, or (if you're low on one or the other) substitute a little of each with the other to reach 1 1/2 Cups total (banana & apple sauce).

Also, to make the recipe even more healthy, feel free to substitute whole-wheat flour for the white flour and/or substitute the 1 large egg with 2 large egg whites to reduce the fat from the yolk. You can also reduce the pecans & chocolate to 1/8 cup each.
