Olive Garden Salad Dressing Recipe

Olive Garden Salad Dressing 'Knock Off' Recipe

True confession: I do not like Olive Garden’s salad dressing. But that is probably only because I do not like salad dressing at all. Period. Not.one.single.dressing. Nada. Nope. None.
However, I have some kids who are crazy about this dressing, so I make it with my homemade Italian Dressing Mix for them.

Not-So-Oopsie Rolls

 Not-So-Oopsie Rolls

 

Revolution rolls. Oopsie buns. Cloud bread. Variations of this bread/bun/roll are all over the internet. Some have said that Dr. Atkins himself invented the original recipe, the revolution roll.

I’m not sure where the recipes originated, but I do know that when I added a little bit of my Basic Flour Mix (or finely-ground almond flour, see note below), these “Not-So-Oopsie” Rolls had more structure, were less “wet” to hold as sandwiches, and tasted amazing!

Sugar-Free Grilled BBQ Chicken

Wowsie, sometimes I really miss BBQ—you know the sweet, yet spicy/tangy, taste of BBQ ribs from Outback or pulled pork from a street vendor at the fair? And when I start feeling that way, I know that it is time to pull out my Sugar-Free Sweet and Spicy BBQ Sauce and make something yummy!

Monterey Marinade

 

Monterey Marinade

 

I like to marinate meats in a bbq type/Tex Mex marinade when using them in fajitas, bbq, etc. (Even if I am adding bbq sauce at cooking time, I still love that flavor-infusion from marinading in this mixture!)

BEST. Sugar free. Jam. Ever. And I am a grammar police—I have written fifty books (mostly English curricula) and forty thousand pages over the past fifteen years. But this jam is good enough to break the sentence rules over! 🙂

Berry Creamsickles

All you need are two ingredients: Frozen berries and fat free vanilla creamer and that’s it!
I’ve used stawberries, blueberries, blackberries and a combination of all (all from Trader Joe’s btw) and all are delicious. Sometimes I’ve also add a few frozen banana pieces. I’ve even frozen some mandarin orange sections. Then the ice cream tastes like a CreamSicle.
Pour the desired berries into the Ninja and process until all the fruit is reduced to tiny little pieces. THEN add the fat free vanilla creamer..a little at a time until the desired consistency. If you want to add more sweetner, you can, but the creamer is pretty sweet.
Just experiment with different fruits and flavors. Since it only makes 1 – 2 servings at a time, if you don’t like it, it’s not a big $ so you don’t have to be obligated to eat it.

Berry Ice Cream Treat

1 c. Frozen berries
2/3 c. milk
1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 packets of Splenda (you can use 1/4 c. sugar if you want)
Blended for 20-30 seconds. DONE. DELICIOUS! :) the whole thing took about 2 minutes. Amazing.
(I ate some right away, but put the rest in the freezer — the recipe promised a harder, more ice cream-ish texture if frozen for an hour or so.)
