Malted Milk Ball Brownie Triangles

Skinny Malted Milk Ball Brownie Triangles

 

This is my daughter’s favorite brownie recipe; I have made this so many times in the past when she had friends come to visit. Over the past few years, I changed the recipe to adapt to the “skinny way”. She insisted I make them this way for her and her friends. We did a taste test one day and both my daughter and a few of her friends liked this version so much more.

So here is another Skinny Sweets Daily brownie recipe that I hope you and your family will enjoy. By the way, that’s my beautiful daughter, Tori’s, hand in the picture. She was being a smarty pants while I was trying to take the pictures. I think she wanted to show off her new manicure. I liked the way the picture came out so I decided to use it.

Healthy Low Fat Gluten Free Chocolate Muffins

Healthy Low Fat Gluten Free Chocolate Muffins

 

When you read the ingredients in this recipe, you will probably think there is a typo; don’t worry, there isn’t. If you are looking for the flour, there is none (that’s right). Somehow I figured out how to make a healthy gluten free dessert and low fat muffin without using any kind of flour at all. Making a gluten free dessert is always a challenge when trying to keep the fat down, but you will never know these wonderful tasting muffins are low fat.

When I told my husband to try them, I started smiling and he said, “Oh no! What’s in these that you don’t want me to know about?” I told him to just try them. He loved them, but he still doesn’t know they were low fat and gluten free (and I don’t plan on telling him either). Anyway, give these a try and I bet they will be a big hit even with the fussiest of eaters.

Just a note, the batter is very thin; don’t think you made a mistake. They come out great every time, so go for it and enjoy!

Beer Braised Slow Cooker Flank Steak

flank steak sept 2014 large

 

Recently we had dinner in a local diner and my husband ordered flank steak. Not something he usually orders. Anyway, he said it was so tender and had a bold flavor that was really tasty. I figured can’t hurt to ask the waiter if he knew how they made the steak. It was called “Braised Flank Steak” He said he thinks they cook the meat with bear in a slow cooker. That’s all I needed to hear. The next week, I bought the steak and made up this recipe. My hubs loved it and said it was better than the diner. It was our “Date” night dinner. It’s a very easy recipe thanks to the trusty slow cooker as well as being a healthier way of eating steak. Just one more thing, we had plenty of leftovers, you can freeze it or better yet, make yourself a cold steak sandwich on a nice crusty roll the next day.

Cucumber, Peanut and Chive Salad

VGantley_CucumberPeanutChiveSalad

 

Submitted by:  Veronica Gantley

I have a few more cucumbers left in my garden. This year I have been truly blessed. Between my Mother-in-Law and Mrs. Barnes who lives down the street I have a bumper crop of wonderful cucumbers. I have canned dill and bread and butter pickles. I have made the traditional cucumber onion and vinegar salad more times than I care to admit.

I was looking for something a bit different to enjoy these wonderful green jewels of goodness.  The chives are not as strong as the usual spanish onions I pair with in this salad. I love the peanuts. They add a bit of texture that goes well with it. I thought about adding some feta cheese, but didnt have any to put in it. Next time I think I will.

Light and Luscious Fruit Dip

Light and Luscious Fruit Dip

 

There is a story behind this lovely fruit dip; it’s my Mom’s (Ruthie’s) recipe and I just changed it a little to fit into the skinny version. The main story behind this recipe is actually the beautiful scalloped dish it is in. Growing up, my wonderful Mom loved entertaining, especially for her Bridge ladies, and this dip was a staple. She always let me help make it the night before her luncheons since it needed to be made at least a few hours before. I always loved the pretty green dish she served it in. My mom once told me that one day when I was married I could have the dish. We both forgot about it until a few years ago when she was unpacking after she moved. When I went to visit her she surprised me with it. I remember smiling so hard, my face hurt! I am so happy to share this recipe with all of you and to show you a picture of this cute little green dish. Thanks for letting me share my story.

Seafood Pasta Salad

VGantley_SeafoodPastaSalad

 

Submitted by:  Veronica Gantley

I have a really large family. So when I am asked to bring a side dish to a function, this is my go to recipe. It has that crab delight or fake crab meat in it. It is a lot less expensive than say a traditional seafood salad.

Have you seen the prices on shrimp, crab and scallops? That fake crab is a bit on the pricy side also, but nowhere near the real stuff.

It also has Old Bay in it and it gives it a distinct flavor. Every time I bring this to a function it really is the first to go.

You can also double or even triple this recipe if you need to. Either way, once you make this, it will be your go to pasta recipe like it is for me.
