Ingredients :
2 (10 - 11 oz each) boneless skinless chicken breasts, butterflied and halved
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 Tbsp olive oil
6 oz fresh mozzarella, cut into 8 slices
4 avocado slices (from a firm but ripe large avocado)
2 medium vine ripened tomatoes, sliced
3 Tbsp balsamic glaze (I used Bertolli)
1/3 cup chopped basil ribbons


Directions :
In a bowl mix together garlic powder, onion powder, Italian seasoning, 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper. Sprinkle mixture evenly over both sides of each chicken cutlet. Heat olive oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken (cover pan with a splatter screen if you have one) and cook until golden brown on bottom, about 4 - 6 minutes. Rotate and cook opposite side until chicken has nearly cooked though, reducing burner temperature just slightly if needed, about 4 - 5 minutes (it should be nearly 160 in center on an instant read thermometer) then add two slices of mozzarella to the top each cutlet, followed by one avocado slice, and 1 - 2 tomato slices. Cover pan with lid, return to heat and allow to cook
1 - 2 minutes longer until cheese has melted and chicken registers 165 in center.
Sprinkle chicken with pepper, drizzle with balsamic glaze and sprinkle with fresh basil. Serve warm.






Ingredients :
Dough:
1 package active dry yeast
1 teaspoon sugar
1/4 cup warm water
1 cup warm milk
1.7 ounces (50 g) room-temperature butter
1.4 ounces (40 g) sugar
Pinch salt
2 large eggs
19.5 ounces (550 g) all-purpose flour


Directions :
14 ounces (400 g) dry curd or farmer's cheese
3 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
1 large egg yolk
1 tablespoon vanilla sugar
1 large egg beaten with 1 teaspoon water for egg glaze
Crumb / Streusel Topping (optional)
Water Icing (optional)
Confectioners' sugar (optional)






Ingredients :
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 tablespoon water
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips, plus about 1/3 cup more for garnishing
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup milk chocolate chips, plus about 1/3 cup more for garnishing
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
Healthy Swaps: use egg whites instead of an egg (2 egg whites per egg called for) and reduced fat creamy peanut butter.


Directions :
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray or grease 12 muffin cups.
In a medium sized microwave-safe bowl combine sugar, softened butter, and water. Microwave on high for about 45 seconds or until butter is melted. Stir in 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips until melted. Stir in egg and vanilla extract, mix well.
Add flour and baking soda, stir until combined. Allow the batter to cool to room temperature (doesn’t take very long).
Stir in 3/4 cup milk chocolate chips and remaining 1/4 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips.
Spoon batter evenly into muffin cups.
Bake for 13-15 minutes or until top is set and a toothpick inserted into center comes out slightly wet. After brownies are out of the oven, wait for centers to fall. This will happen upon cooling. If not (they did not for me) then tap the centers with the back of a teaspoon to make a hole for the peanut butter.
Place peanut butter in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high for 45 seconds then stir. While brownies are still warm spoon about a tablespoon full of peanut butter into the center of each brownie. Top with remaining 1/3 cup of milk chocolate and semi-sweet chocolate chips. Cool completely in pan.

Ingredients :
Crepe Batter
6 large eggs
1 tsp salt
1 Tbsp sugar
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
4 cups milk
1/4 cup melted butter or oil
To Stuff:
Nutella
Toasted Almond Flakes
Also:
Non stick pan
Rubber spatula


Directions :
1. To make with a blender or a mixer: To a blender or a mixer add eggs, sugar, salt and flour. Turn on high and let it blend until combined. Through the top opening in the lid slowly add the milk until the batter is of homogenous consistency, stopping the blender and scraping the flour off the sides of the blender cup as needed. Lastly add the oil and whiz for about 30 seconds. At this point the batter can be used right away, or put in the fridge and used next day. If using right away, skim off the foam from the top and discard. If using next day, stir thoroughly for about 30 seconds before using.
To make with a whisk and a bowl: add the eggs, sugar, salt and flour to a large bowl and whisk until a thick batter forms. Slowly add the milk about 1/2 cup at a time, whisking each time to form a smooth, clump free batter before adding more milk. Once all milk has been added, pour in the melted butter or oil and whisk for about 1 minute for the oil to be fully incorporated.
2. How to Cook the Crepes
Using a non stick skillet – Thoroughly heat a non stick skillet over medium heat. Once the pan is hot, tilt the skillet at a 45 degree angle and ladle the batter over the raised side trying to cover the top, while allowing it drizzle down as you pour. Swirl the pan around until the bottom is covered with batter, adding more to cover any gaps. Do not pour too much at a time or the crepes will be too thick. You wan to just barely coat the bottom of the pan. It might take a couple ladles to figure out how much you will need per your size of the pan, but once you have just continue pouring about the same amount. When the sides of the crepe have started to lift away from the pan, go around the pan with a rubber spatula releasing the side of the crepe. Then gently slide the spatula under the middle of the crepe and flip it over. Cook for about 20-30 seconds and invert onto a dish. Cook the rest of the crepes in the above manner.
Using a regular skillet – If you do not have a non stick skillet, heat your regular skillet thoroughly on medium high heat. Using a pastry brush, brush the bottom with oil. Add the batter in the above described manner and continue cooking the same way as you would with a non stick skillet (see instructions above). After the first crepe, reduce heat to medium and cook the rest of the crepes over medium heat.
Note:
 – if you want the crepes to have a lacey appearance with lots of tiny holes, brush the hot skillet with an oiled brush right before pouring the batter.






Ingredients :
1 pound lean ground turkey
1 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
3/4 cup salsa, no sugar added
1 cup grated cheddar cheese, reduced-fat
3 bell peppers


Directions :
Remove seeds, core, and membrane from bell peppers then slice each one into 6 verticle pieces where they dip down. Set sliced bell peppers aside.
Cook ground turkey over medium-high heat, breaking up as it cooks. Cook until the turkey loses it's pink color and is cooked through. Drain off any fat.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Combine cooked turkey with spices and salsa. Evenly distribute mixture into the bell pepper boats, top with cheese. Bake on a parchment lined baking sheet for 10 minutes or until cheese is melted and peppers are hot.
NOTE: If you prefer much softer bell peppers, add a few tablespoons water to the bottom of a large casserole dish, add filled nachos, cover tightly with foil and bake 15 minutes.
Remove from the oven and add additional toppings, If desired.
Optional ingredients: sliced Jalepeno peppers, diced avocado, fat-free Greek yogurt or sour cream, or sliced green onions.






Ingredients :
50 tater tots
16-ounce package Bacon
2/3 cup Brown Sugar
2 tablespoons Chili Powder


Directions :
Preheat oven to 375-400 degrees (depending on how crispy you like your Bacon).
Line a cookie sheet with foil and place a cooling rack on top of the pan. This will allow the bacon to crisp on all sides.
Cut each bacon strip into 4 pieces. Cut the bacon in half and then cut each half in half again.
Wrap each thawed tater tot in bacon and then roll it in the brown sugar mixture. Place on top of the cookie rack.
Bake about 10 to 15 minutes at 375, then increase the oven to 400 and let them cook another 5 minutes. Check to see if they are crisping up. You may need to leave them in 5 minutes longer. Check frequently at this point so they don't burn.
Serve warm.
