Low Fat Peach Muffins from author Cleo Coyle

Print Friendly and PDF

These tasty muffins are packed with fresh peach flavor. Marc and I often eat them drizzled with a little honey. They are truly amazing that way. If you prefer to make them low fat, use 1% or 2% milk. For a richer tasting muffin, go with whole milk, half-and-half, or cream. The higher the fat content of your milk, the richer your peach muffins will taste.

Irish Whiskey Steak Recipe for St. Patrick's Day from author Cleo Coyle

Print Friendly and PDF

 

Inspired by the ingredients of Irish coffee, my husband and I married whiskey and java in this recipe for an outrageously delicious marinade. 

The coffee accents the earthiness of the beef, which stands in contrast to the spirited brightness of the whiskey. 

The combination creates the kind of complexity that gives beautiful flavor, a finish so good you won’t need steak sauce, just a thick slice of bread to sop up every bit of those sizzling steak juices on your plate.

No flour, no yeast, no kidding! 

While versions of this recipe have been around for years (dating back to the early days of the Atkins diet), they aren't all equal. My recipe includes a key step to making it work. 

Yes, I was skeptical at first. My husband was, too, but he's a believer now. He enjoyed half this small pie with me, beer in hand, smile on his face. May you, too, eat with joy!
