Hi ladies,

Following up on Tammy's post, I thought you'd like to see the recipe I've been using since February. I credit these muffins with keeping me on track because they taste like a treat, but they're LC and healthy!

FLAX MUFFINS (recipe make 6)

2 eggs, beaten
1 cup milled/ground flax (golden is best, but you can use regular)
1/4 cup SF vanilla syrup (or flavor of your choice)
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 Tblsp oil (I use coconut, vegetable or canola oil)

Then for cinnamon muffins, add:
1½ tblsp ground cinnamon

Or for banana-walnut, add:
½ cup chopped walnuts
1 Tblsp banana extract

Or for lemon-poppy, add:
1 Tblsp lemon extract
poppy seeds (I put in a palmful)

Preheat oven to 350. Mix together ingredients and pour into muffins pans. (I use regular muffin pans, some use mini. I line the pans with baking cups and spray them lightly with Pam since I heard some people have had sticking problems. They come out perfectly every time.) Bake for 15 minutes and cool. Store in refrigerator.

Note: You can make lots of other variations as well. I've done raspberry-pecan with SF raspberry syrup and chopped pecans; almond with SF almond syrup and a dash of almond extract; blueberry with SF french vanilla syrup and 1/2 cup of fresh blueberries. They're all delicious, so experiment and have fun!

Cheesecake

All Phases

Cheesecake

Ingredients
8 oz. fat free cream cheese
1/2 c. fat free sour cream
1 Egg
8 packets Splenda (more or less to taste)
A dash of lemon juice
A dash of vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix together all the ingredients with a mixer. I beat it pretty high b/c the fat free ingredients are kind of clumpy. Pour the mixture into a lightly pammed baking dish. I used an 8 x 8 square pan, but a pie plate or any other smaller dish should work. Bake about 20 - 30 minutes until it looks slightly brown. It will only brown much around the edges because none of the ingredients really brown well.

Coconut Shrimp Curry
Curry hails from India, where the word is used to describe a spicy sauce. Today, curry is popular all over the world. If you're a fan of curry, or if you want to taste it (and you like your food hot), give this recipe a try.


Makes 2 servings

Description
When making a curry, toast or warm the curry paste in liquid first, before adding other ingredients, to bring out the fragrant, complicated flavors. Opt for red curry paste as opposed to green, which is much spicier, and make sure you use unsweetened coconut milk rather than the thick, sweetened kind. We like to serve this over brown rice - the curry cooks so quickly, it will be done before the rice is finished cooking.

Tip: Because there's no oil in the pot, you must keep stirring the peppers and onions as they cook.

Ingredients
1 cup unsweetened light coconut milk, divided
1 teaspoon red Thai curry paste
1/2 large red pepper, thinly sliced
1/2 small onion, thinly sliced
2 teaspoons Splenda or other sugar substitute
1 teaspoon fish sauce
10–12 ounces extra-large shrimp
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
Sliced fresh basil leaves and fresh lime wedges for garnish

Instructions
1. In medium saucepan over medium heat, bring 1/4 cup of the coconut milk and the curry paste to a simmer. Add peppers and onions; cook 4 minutes, stirring often. Stir in remaining 3/4 cup coconut milk, Splenda, and fish sauce. Bring to a simmer; let cook 1 minute.

2. Add shrimp; cook 3 minutes, until shrimp is cooked through, stirring once to flip shrimp. Remove from heat; stir in lime juice. garnish with basil and additional lime.

Instructions
To make the shrimp: Combine the wine, mustard seeds, pepper flakes, bay leaves, and lemon in a large saucepan. Add water to fill the pan two-thirds full. Bring to a boil over high heat. Add the shrimp, and cook for 3-4 minutes or until the shrimp have turned pink and are no longer translucent in the center. Drain and cool. Discard the bay leaves.

To make the herb-dill dressing: In a screw-top jar, mix the olive oil, red wine vinegar, water, basil, dill, garlic, mustard, and onion. Shake well.

Place the shrimp in a large bowl and add the dressing. Toss well, cover, and refrigerate until well-chilled.

Serve the shrimp mixture on romaine lettuce leaves and surround with the tomato wedges and mushroom slices. Garnish with dill sprigs, if using.

Beef Satay With Peanut Sauce

Rich and creamy, with just the right touch of spice, peanut sauce is great for perking up tender grilled slices of top round beef. Try this delicious satay for dinner or serve it at an upcoming get-together with friends.

Makes 4 servings

Prep time: 15 minutes
Start to finish: 15 minutes

Ingredients

Satay
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
1/2 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
11/2 pounds top round beef, trimmed and cut into 3?4-inch-thick slices

Sauce
1/4 cup creamy trans fat–free peanut butter
1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon plus 11?2 teaspoons rice vinegar
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes

Special equipment
4 (12-inch) skewers

Instructions

For the satay: In a 9x13-inch glass baking dish, combine garlic, lime juice, ginger, and sesame oil. Add beef and turn to coat with marinade. Cover the dish with plastic wrap and marinate beef at room temperature for 20 minutes.

For the sauce: In a medium bowl, whisk together peanut butter, water, soy sauce, vinegar, garlic, and pepper flakes.

Lightly coat a grill or grill pan with cooking spray and heat to medium-high. Thread equal amounts of sliced meat onto 4 skewers. Grill meat 5 to 7 minutes per side for medium-rare. Serve warm with peanut sauce drizzled evenly over the meat or on the side for dipping.
