Healthier Fettuccine Alfredo

Healthier Fettuccine Alfredo ~ by My Utensil Crock

I have had this recipe in my electronic "stack of pages torn from magazines" for years and years. This is not metaphorical - at one point, I scanned in like 100 recipes I had ripped out of magazines. It looked good to me, but I always shy away from alfredo sauces at restaurants, because I am sure they are pure cream and cheese. I honestly can't … [Read more...]

30 Second Scrambled Eggs ~ by My Utensil Crock

I am completely enamored of this recipe. Well, "recipe" is a strong word for it. Trick? Technique? Call it what you will, but in about 30 seconds, you can make scrambled eggs in your microwave. And they are fluffy, and light, and delicious. No oil, just egg. They pop right out! And it won't be rubbery - as long as you don't spread them … [Read more...]

Healthier Chicken Parmesan ~ by My Utensil Crock

Ahhhhh, yes. I made this. And I ate this. It tasted exactly like it looks. Completely delicious. I have had a stack of tattered pages - recipes torn out from magazines - for years. Every once in a while I cull through it, looking for inspiration and knowing my tastes have changed and that I am likely not going to make each of the … [Read more...]

Marscapone Grilled Cheese Sandwiches with Hot Chocolate Soup ~ by My Utensil Crock

This post was a long time coming, in a few ways. First, the recipe. Mascarpone Grilled Cheese Sandwiches with Hot Chocolate Soup. I first met this recipe in 2008 by way of an early but classic Cooking Club (Hostess: me; Theme: Soup’s On!; Date: 12.07.08). Every recipe in that menu was a soup, and this dessert course did not disappoint. The menu … [Read more...]

Tortilla Chips

Make Your Own Tortilla Chips ~ My Utensil Crock

This spring has been a busy one, so I am reposting an oldie but goodie. Almost four years ago (!) to the day (unplanned! fortuitous!) I posted this recipe for making tortilla chips out of tortillas. Healthier than a store-bought bag of chips, and about 20 minutes in the oven. Not bad, right? Try them in these Healthy Nachos, like I do! When … [Read more...]

Zucchini Turkey Sausage Lasagna by My Utensil Crock

I have so been looking forward to posting this Italian Sausage Lasagna with Zucchini Noodles. It actually started as a "Thanksgiving leftovers" recipe, of all things, when I had considered using shredded leftover roasted turkey in the filling. But I had a slight fail with making a roasted turkey breast a month before Thanksgiving during a time … [Read more...]

Oat flour pancakes with fresh roasted fruit syrup ~ by My Utensil Crock

In this crazy world we are living in, may I recommend: THIS. I enjoyed it all weekend long. And potentially will at work too this week; need to work on my commuting/storing/serving-on-desk system. I definitely had it last night for dinner. Because I have never regretted "breakfast for dinner," and neither would you. This recipe … [Read more...]

Kale and Bacon Cheesy Party Dip

Kale and Bacon Cheesy Party Dip by My Utensil Crock

If there is kale in it, it’s healthy, right? How about THIS much kale? * Crickets * Ok, I will not pretend this recipe is healthy, but I will assure you it is delicious, and is a total winner for party snacks. If there are three things people are loving on these days, they are kale, bacon, and cheese. I had a few ladies over to … [Read more...]

Indoor S’Mores for a Group

Indoor S'Mores for a Group by My Utensil Crock

As summer comes to a close this evening, I would like to pay homage to a favorite taste of summer*: The S'More. * Also fall, and winter. And I have never turned down a Spring S'More. My cousin SFH put the idea for Indoor S'Mores for a Group in my head before her annual July 4 party this year, and it has been looming large since then. She … [Read more...]
