Yes Gina! I am so happy to be on the other side of the fence now :) :) :)
I'm missing a few ingredient and haven't had the chance of trying your recipe Erin, but I will for sure this week!
In the mean time... Look what I found on another blog somewhere in blogland... I made this yesterday as we were having friends over for dinner. They never guessed it was so healthy ;)
Sorry Erin, you may have to wait 8 weeks, but it's going to be sooooo worth it :)
Blueberry Cheesecake Cottage Cheese Pudding Recipe
1/2 c. lowfat cottage cheese* (about 15 grams protein)
1 serving low carb vanilla whey powder (about 20 grams protein)
1/2 c. blueberries (fresh, frozen or thawed - see below)
1 oz. lowfat cream cheese
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (depending on your protein powder)
Splenda or stevia to taste
1- Blend the cottage cheese and cream cheese in a food processor until all the lumps are gone.
2- Add whey powder, sweetener and vanilla to process.
3- Add your blueberries (less a few for garnish) - I like to add them frozen; it thickens the pudding and makes it taste like blueberry cheesecake ice cream.
(If you wanted to get crazy, stir in a few more small chunks of cream cheese and whole blueberries, plus a few berries for garnish. Although it may be begging for sugar free whipped cream, it's also fantastic by itself).
Claudine, you are forgiven!! LOL!! This pudding recipe sounds sooooo yummy! On my list for 8 weeks from now!!
wow, sounds delicious! Never thought of adding the cream cheese!! That sounds delicious and definitely like a cheesecake modification. May even want to try that one with the non fat cool whip, that would be amazing too! Pics please??? For your guests to not know it was healthy, that is a winner! :)
Easy and tasty :) I LOOOOVE salmon!!!
6 (5 oz.) salmon fillets
4 cloves of minced garlic
1 tbsp. of white wine
1 tbsp. of honey
1/3 cup of balsamic vinegar
salt and pepper (to taste)
1 tbsp. of fresh oregano, chopped
1) Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil, and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
2) Coat a small saucepan with non-stick cooking spray. Over medium heat, cook and stir garlic until soft. Mix in white wine, honey, balsamic vinegar, mustard, and salt and pepper. Simmer, uncovered, for about 3 minutes, or until slightly thickened.
3) Arrange salmon fillets on foil-lined baking sheet. Brush fillets with balsamic glaze, and sprinkle with oregano.
4) Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 14 minutes, or until flesh flakes easily with a fork. Brush fillets with remaining glaze, and season with salt and pepper.
5) Drink the rest of the Vine with a good friend :)
That looks delicious Claudine and that is so funny you posted this because I was thinking of having salmon tonight, similar recipe but here are my modifications...
REMOVE WHITE WINE, AND REPLACE HONEY WITH 2 TBSP SUGAR FREE SYRUP AND NO SALT...
I bake mine the same but add glaze once cooked and then turn on broiler for a few minutes to caramelize the syrup/balsamic glaze! :) to die for!!!
I replace my vino white for red and enjoy with my salmon meal! :)
Funny, on the same page today... must be craving those fats! :)

Mix paprika, cayenne and garlic together. If using olive oil add that and make a paste. Add shrimp and mix well. Broil for about 2 minutes per side.
WOW, so is this the recipe you were talking about, that is amazing! Looks delicious. This is very easy to make too! I am putting this on my list for the week. Need to stock up on the ingredients and then I will post my photo and feedback later in the week. Think it is going to be a hit for the whole family :)
Thanks for posting Brilliant one!! :)
LOL! Brilliant one!! How cute. I'm honored! Yes, definitely let me know what you think. It was incredibly tasty!
I HIGHLY recommend Erin's Spicy Couscous Summer Salad with Shrimp. I tried it this weekend and it was AMAZING!!! I plan on making it this week.
Erin was a total sweetie and baked me some of her Mug Cake. OMG it was GOOD! It honestly tasted like a real cake, super moist!
Now if you could only find a recipe that is SUPER healthy and tastes just like peanut butter cheesecake toped with carmel...If anyone can do it, I know Erin can!
Ooh, Nikee...do I sense a challenge? Okay, I'm on it. Probably won't really be able to figure that out until after my show but I'm on it!!! Don't you worry!
Hummmm Erin, I think Nikee is putting us to the challenge!! I am on it.... ;)
