If you haven’t already heard, we got some really cool news in the Test Kitchen this week. We were told that our diabetic cookbook, Hello Taste, Goodbye Guilt! was nominated for QVC’s Customer Choice Food Awards 2014! We knew you guys loved our cookbook since it sold out all four times we shared it with you on QVC, but we didn’t realize just how popular it really was.
Of course, we want to win. Not just because it’s our cookbook (although that’s a pretty good reason!) but because we want the diabetic community to know that they can still enjoy all the foods they love, without feeling guilty or having to cook separate meals for their family. Our book has recipes in every category from breakfast to dessert, and everything in between. It even has recipes for cream pies and casseroles, foods that many diabetics think are off-limits to them!
I get to try a lot of the recipes here at work, and most of the time I’m amazed to learn that they’re diabetic-friendly. In fact, you always hear a lot of “This is from the diabetic cookbook? WOW!”
So, since our cookbook was nominated and I’ve had such good experiences with our diabetic recipes here at the office, I thought I’d try my hand at making something from the book that you wouldn’t think could be diabetic-friendly…Chicken Pot Pie!

Some kitchen scents really stick with you. I can smell something sizzlin’ on the grill and remember weekend barbecues growing up; anytime I smell a freshly baked cake, I’m reminded of my Easy Bake Oven; and whenever I catch a whiff of homemade bread, I think about my favorite bakery where my family would buy donuts on special Sunday mornings. I love being able to recreate these memories from my childhood, and one of my favorite ways to do so is by baking a fresh loaf of bread.
I don’t have my own bread machine at home, so I’m always looking for homemade bread recipes that I can make by popping something into the oven. My one other requirement? It’s gotta be unique. When I make bread, I don’t want it to be the kind I can easily find at my local grocery store ’cause why would I go through the effort to make my own then? Luckily, the Mr. Food Test Kitchen has plenty of eye-popping bread recipes for me to drool over.

Chicken. Beef. Pork. Most of us are used to eating the same kinds of protein at every meal. And while there’s a ton of ways you can cook up the three big players without ever getting bored, there’s always room for even more variety.
We’re talking fish. Continue reading
