Fall-Off-the-Bone Chicken Soup

FB Source: Carl Barbaro

Original Source: Eat Drink Paleo

1 whole free range chicken
2 celery sticks, washed
2 carrots, washed and peeled
2 spring onion bulbs (go for the green onions with more developed white bulbs) or 1 brown onion, cut into quarters
3-4 bay leaves
A few coriander (cilantro) stems and some leaves
2 garlic cloves, peeled and cut in half
1 tsp whole black peppercorns
2 litres cold water
2 medium white potatoes, peeled and cut into small cubes*
2 tsp Celtic salt or sea salt
1-2 large pots

  1. Firstly cut your chicken into 4 pieces. Use kitchen scissors to cut through one side of the spine and along the breast bone on the other side. Cut off the thighs from each half and you will have quarters. Place chicken in a large pot and cover with two litres of cold water. Place on the stove and turn the heat to high.
  2. While the water is coming to boil you can prepare the rest of ingredients. What I do next is add bay leaves, garlic and peppercorns to the chicken stock. I then cut one of the celery sticks and one of the carrots into 3-4 pieces and add to the stock along with the white onion. I tear coriander leaves off the stems and save those for later; I add the stems as well as a few fresh leaves to the stock. The rest of the vegetables will be added in the second part of cooking. That’s it! Bring it to boil, then bring the heat down to low simmer and cover with a lead. Every now and then you can skim off the foam but we are going to strain the liquid so don’t worry too much about it. Cook for 1 hour 30 minutes. Make sure it doesn’t boil or cook on high heat, low and steady is a secret to super soft chicken.
  3. While the stock is cooking you can prepare the rest of the vegetables. Peel and cube the potato, slice the second halves of celery and carrot, and wash the coriander leaves.
  4. By this stage the smell of chicken soup would have filled your house and you’re now ready for phase number two. Remove chicken pieces on to a bowl or a chopping board and let them cool down so we can work with the meat. Strain the rest of the liquid into another pot. You can use some of the cooked veggies but I like to discard those and use freshly chopped ones for some crunch.
  5. Add salt, potato, celery and carrot to the strained stock. Bring to boil, then turn down to low simmering and cook for 10-15 minutes or until potato is soft to bite. While cooking, remove chicken skin and separate the meat. Tear the meat into thin strips and return to the soup at the end. Turn the heat off, throw in a handful of coriander leaves and some diced green onion and cover with a lid to set for a few minutes before serving.

Negative-Calorie Diet Soup

FB Source: Carl Barbaro

ORIGINAL Source: Getting Skinny with Courtney

Recipe 1
1 head green cabbage, cut into 1 inch pieces
1 medium onion, peeled and diced
4 large carrots, peeled and sliced
4 stalks celery, sliced
4 turnips, peeled and cut into cubes
2 zucchini, peeled and cut into cubes
2 cans green beans
32 ounces beef stock or chicken stock, or 16 ounces tomato juice and 16 ounces water

  1. Combine all ingredients in a stock pot and bring to a boil. 
  2. Add water, if needed, to cover all vegetables. 
  3. Reduce heat to a moderate simmer and cover. 
  4. Cook about 1 hour, or until all vegetables are tender.

Recipe 2
6 onions
2 green peppers
2 cans whole or crushed tomatoes
1 head cabbage
1 large bunch celery
2 pkg. dry onion soup mix


  1. Cut vegetables into medium size pieces, add soup mix and cover with water.
  2. Cook on high for 10 minutes, then lower heat and simmer until vegetables are tender.
The negative calorie diet soup recipe is the belief that there are negative calorie foods that take more calories to digest than the actual calorie content of these foods and so creating a negative caloric effect. The extra energy to break down these foods is taken from the stored fat in the body causing weight loss through the negative calorie diet. For example an apple containing 50 calories may call for 100 calories to digest via the negative calorie diet recipe. So an additional 50 calories have been burnt simply by eating that particular food via the negative calorie diet. These calories are taken from the body's fat reserves in the negative calorie diet recipe.

Brown Butter Salted Caramel Snickerdoodles

ORIGINAL Source: The Recipe Critic

2½ cups all-purpose Gold Medal flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup unsalted butter, sliced
1¼ cup dark brown sugar
½ cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 egg yolk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon plain Greek yogurt
1 cup caramel squares, cut into ¼’s
¼ cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon coarse sea salt

  1. In a medium sized bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, cream of tarter, cinnamon, and set aside.
  2. To brown the butter, heat a medium saucepan to medium high heat. Add the sliced butter, whisking frequently. You will notice the butter starting to become frothy on the top and brown specks will start to form along the bottom. You have to watch it closely because the turn happens quickly and you don’t want it to burn. You will start to smell a nutty aroma and once it turns to a brown color, remove from heat and let it cool to room temperature.
  3. While the butter is cooling, cut the caramel squares into quarters.
  4. In a stand mixer, combine the brown butter and brown sugar, and ½ cup granulated sugar. (The remaining ¼ cup sugar will be used for rolling in the cookies). Mix until blended and smooth.
  5. Beat in egg, yolk, vanilla and yogurt and mix until combined. Slowly add the dry ingredients until combined.
  6. Form the dough into a ball and cover with plastic. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes or overnight.
  7. Once you are ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Measure about 2 tablespoons of dough and roll into a ball. Flatten the ball and place 1-2 caramel squares inside, wrap the cookie dough over the caramel and roll back into a ball. Make sure it is completely covered so that the caramel won’t stick to the pan.
  8. Mix ¼ cup sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl and roll each cookie in the mixture. Place cookies on a parchment lined cookie sheet 2 inches apart. Sprinkle lightly with sea salt. (I used coarse sea salt)
  9. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until the edges turn lightly brown. The centers will be soft. Allow to cook for 2-3 minutes, and transfer to a wire cooling rack to cool completely.

Braided Nutella Bread

ORIGINAL Source: Goods Home Design

2 1/2 C all purpose flour
1/2 tsp yeast
1 C water
1 tsp salt
1 Tbsp sugar
some Nutella
one egg

  1. Start by dissolving yeast with a 1/4 cup water in a small bowl. Take another bowl, and while you let the yeast rest for 10 minutes, mix in – with the use of a stand mixer – the appropriate amount of flour, salt, and sugar.
  2. Add the yeast and mix at a low speed. Smoothly turn the speed to medium and keep turning for 7 minutes.
  3. Get another bowl and lightly oil it and place the dough you recently made in there. Cover it with a plastic wrap and in about an hour of sitting in a warm place it will double in size.
  4. Roll some of the dough in order to make a circle. Careful you leave enough because you’ll have to make another circle in a few minutes. 
  5. Take the Nutella (be careful to take it out the fridge for a while so it would be easy to spread; you could also microwave it for 30 seconds to be sure) and pour an even layer on the surface, but leaving half an inch of margin of dough all around.
  6. The next step is to place another roll off dough (Nutella free) on top. 
  7. Afterward, place it on a parchment-lined or silicon-lined baking sheet. It’s advised you sprinkle the sheet beforehand with cornmeal. 
  8. Use a knife to cut the dough down the middle, but keeping one end intact. Look at the image for guideline. 
  9. By turning the cut side toward the top, twist the ends of the dough overtop each other. Do this for every cut you made. 
  10. For the next 20 minutes, let your future bread sit in a dry place, but make sure you cover it with plastic wrap. In the meantime, prepare the oven. Set it to 350°F. 
  11. Before placing the dough in, brush it with some egg wash. 
  12. Then, bake at this temperature for about 20 minutes. 
  13. To get that lightly brown look and taste on top, raise to 425°F and bake for another 5-7 minutes.
It’s done! Let it cool before serving.

Monday = Blue
Tuesday = Green
Thursday = Red
Friday = White
Saturday = Yellow
So if today was Thursday, you would want red twist tie; not white which is Fridays (almost a week old)! The colors go alphabetically by color Blue- Green - Red - White - Yellow, Monday through Saturday. Very easy to remember. I thought this was interesting. I looked in the grocery store and the bread wrappers DO have different twist ties, and even the ones with the plastic clips have different colors. You learn something new everyday! Enjoy fresh bread when you buy bread with the right color on the day you are shopping.

2-Ingredient Pumpkin Muffins

FB Source: Karyn McNeal

1 box Spice cake mix
15 oz can Pumpkin puree

  1. Simply mix together the powder from a spice cake mix and pumpkin.
  2. Add to pre-greased muffin pan (I like the minis).
  3. Bake at 350° for 12-15 minutes (until toothpick comes out clean)
 .... and VIOLA!! Amazingly yummy pumpkin spice muffins!! All of their warm, wonderful goodness is ready start->finish in about 20 minutes. ((Recipe credit goes to my sis!))

Note: I have made these using the mini paper cups, but in my opinion too much of the muffin sticks to the paper when eating them, so I have found that a quick spray with cooking oil or (my preference), a wipe with coconut oil in the muffin tins makes the muffins pop right out when cooked. Also, NO OTHER INGREDIENTS from the spice cake are needed (such as the oil, egg, etc).

Lemon Crinkle Cookies

FB Source: Theresa Coutain

1 box lemon cake mix (any kind)
1 egg, lightly beaten
2 cups Cool Whip, thawed (8 ounce container)
½ to 1 cup powdered sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. In a large bowl, combine cake mix, egg, and Cool Whip. The batter will be sticky!
  3. Form dough into tablespoonfuls and roll in powdered sugar.
  4. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, until the edges are golden. Allow to cool 1 minute on baking sheet; then remove.
These cookies use only four ingredients, and mix up in less than 5 min.
Seriously awesome. Even better, they use no oil or butter. I know, you might be a little skeptical, too. But these are simply the lightest, softest, yummiest cookies ever.

Stacie says: "I'm not into gimmicks. The real title of the posted recipe is 'Low Fat Crinkle Cookies', but there's nothing low-fat about these, when you consider the Cool Whip in this recipe. And for them to say that it doesn't call for oil or butter, umm, let me refer you again to the Cool Whip. Not that it's a fat or butter, but the first two ingredients on MY Cool Whip tub in the fridge are: Skim Milk, Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil (Coconut and Palm Kernel Oil). So, again, low-fat? I don't think so. But, hopefully, they're still yummy!! ;)As for vilifying fats, well, we should be more worried about calories than the fats."
