Cilantro Lime Green Sauce:

1/2 cup plain fat-free Greek yogurt
1/2 cup light mayo (Trader Joe's has a good red. fat mayo that also happens to be eggless...and therefore vegan...and also no added sugar)
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, coarsely chopped (or 1 tbsp. dried cilantro)
2 fresh garlic cloves
1 jalapeño pepper, coarsely chopped
1 tbsp. fresh lime juice (store-bought will do in a pinch, or 1 tbsp. of water + 2 TrueLime crystallized lime packets)

Put all ingredients in blender or food processor and puree until smooth.  This is a good multi-purpose sauce that goes well with chicken, pork, seafood, vegetables, or rice.  It might even work as a garnish for a bowl of chili.  This recipe came off the container of Target-brand "Simply Balanced" plain fat-free Greek yogurt.

Slow Cooker Fudge

Yield: Servings 20 | Serving Size: 1 piece of fudge | Calories: 114 g | Previous Points: 3 | Points Plus: 3 | Total Fat: 8
g | Satura ted Fat: 4 g | Trans Fat: 0 g | Cholesterol : 0 mg | Sodium: 21 mg | Carbohydrates: 17 g | Sugars: 10 g |
Dietary Fiber: 1 g | Protein: 1 g

Ingredients

• 2-1/2 cups Chocolate Chips, [I used dark chocolate chips because of their health benefits.
Ghirardelli is a good brand and works well with this recipe)
• 1/2 cup coconut milk, (canned, not in a carton)
• 1/4 cup coconut sugar, optional honey or maple syrup
• Dash of sea salt
• 2 tablespoons coconut oil
• 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Directions

Fudge is perfect for the slow cooker because it doesn't scorch or burn.
Add chocolate chips, coconut milk, coconut sugar, salt, and coconut oil, stir to combine. Next, cover
and cook on low 2 hours without stirring. It's important that lid remain on during the 2 hours.
After 2 hours, turn the slow cooker off, uncover, and add vanilla. IMPORTANT; Do not stir fudge
mixture at this point. Allow to cool to room temperature, or it reaches 110 degrees with a candy
thermometer.
Once cooled, use a large spoon, stir vigorously for 5-10 minutes until it loses some the gloss.
Lightly oil an 8"x8" square pan. Pour fudge into pan, cover and refrigerate 4 hours or until firm. This
fudge is very rich and meant to be eaten on occasion as a treat.
Note: Canned coconut milk can be found in the Asian or organic sections of most grocery stores.

Slow Cooker Hoppin' John

Yield: Serves 6
Cook time: 5 Hours, 30 Minutes
Prep time: 5 Minutes

4 strips thick-cut bacon, diced
1 small onion
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1 cup dried black-eyed peas, rinsed and picked over
1 15-oz. can diced tomatoes, drained
1 1/2 cups long-grain rice
1 teaspoon salt

Ingredients

Preparation

1. Place bacon in a saucepan and cook over medium heat until just beginning to crisp. Add onion and cook, stirring, until softened,
about 5 minutes. Scrape bacon, bacon fat and onion into slow cooker. Add crushed red pepper, peas and 4 cups water and stir to
combine. Cover and cook on low until peas are nearly tender, 3 to 4 hours.
2. Stir in tomatoes, rice and salt. Cover and continue to cook just until rice is tender and has absorbed all liquid, 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Fluff
with a fork and serve.

Note:

Go whole grain. Swap in brown rice instead of white to add fiber and other nutrients to this already healthful dish.
Turn up the heat. Like a kick? Use more crushed red pepper and sprinkle the dish with hot sauce just before serving (or pass the
sauce at the table).

Its a jolly good thing I'm a vegetarian or I could see myself gaining quite a lot of weight from those wonderful selections :)

Strawberry Jam without sugar

1 lb   Strawberries
3/4 cup   Water
1 (1.75 oz) Pectin
1 cup   Baking stevia
Optional:    1/2 tbs lemon juice

Ladle the jam into container and let cool to room temp. Cover and place in the refrigerator overnight to let it set. Store in the freezer if desired or up to 1 year, in the fridge for 3 weeks.
