10 Days of Dinners | Intermittent Fasting

6:19 AM 3 Comments

 


I often like to share "what I eat in a day" videos on YouTube... mainly because I love watching what other people eat in a day. Today, I'm doing a variation on that idea and sharing 10 dinners I recently enjoyed (plus a bonus meal).


When I say "dinner" I mean the biggest meal of the day. Sometimes that is lunch for me. I do the 16:8 method of intermittent fasting. I have breakfast at 9:00 a.m. and my last meal by 5:00 p.m. and then do not have anything to eat after that. 

Of course you can enjoy today's video whether you do intermittent fasting or not. Hopefully it gives you some inspiration on what to serve your own family for dinner. 


Disclaimer: This video is intended for entertainment purposes only and is not giving nutritional advice. If you are interested in intermittent fasting, please consult your doctor. 

I hope you enjoy today's video

Comment of the Week

Jerri G. writes, "Hi, Jennifer. Thanks for the wardrobe videos. I've been working on this for about three years. After making a few mistakes, I am getting closer to what works for me and my climate, (south Texas). I have become much more selective about what items make it into my wardrobe and I am also willing to wait if I can't find the right piece. This is quite a turn around for me and I find it liberating."

Hi Jerri, I'm so excited for you to start the ten-item wardrobe journey! It's a very liberating experience!

Thank you for watching today's video. I would love to know what your favorite dinners have been lately. Let us know and your comment could be chosen as comment of the week on the blog.

Outfits of the Week | Winter in California | Ten-Item Capsule Wardrobe

6:20 AM 0 Comments

 


I'm sharing outfits of the week from my winter ten-item capsule wardrobe. This winter has been very mild in California and I'm bringing out some spring dresses to layer. I hope you enjoy today's video



I do the ten-item capsule wardrobe, as chronicled in my Madame Chic books. 

,  

I was under the weather today and forgot to take my mirror selfie. So here is an image of the outfit from the video. I love my Thursday boots!

Hi Laura, if my recipes have made the husband request list, then I have made it! Ha!

Best Slow Cooker Meals for Winter | What's For Dinner?

6:59 AM 2 Comments

Welcome to an all new What's for Dinner episode on The Daily Connoisseur. Today I am sharing 3 slow cooker dinners plus a bonus dinner (for when you forget to use the slow cooker!). Thank you to ButcherBox for sponsoring this video. 






Slow Cooker Mongolian Beef

Slow Cooker Mongolian Beef

Ingredients

  • 3/4 chicken broth
  • 2 Tbs soy sauce
  • 1 Tbs hoisin sauce
  • 2 Tbs minced ginger
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 Tbs minced garlic
  • 1 lb steak cut into strips (flank steak or rib eye)
  • 2 Tbs cornstarch
  • 5 green onions cut into 1-inch pieces
  • sesame seeds to garnish
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • cooked hot rice to serve

Instructions

  1. In a large slow cooker, combine the broth, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, ginger, sesame oil, and garlic. Add the beef and toss to coat. Cook on low 4-5 hours, until meat is tender.
  2. In a small bowl, mix cornstarch and water until smooth and then stir into the beef. This will thicken the sauce. Cook for 30 more minutes on high. Serve over hot cooked rice. Sprinkle with green onions and sesame seeds.

Slow Cooker Chicken Chili with White Beans & Peppers

Slow Cooker Chicken Chili with White Beans & Peppers

Ingredients

  • 1 lb chicken tenders, chopped to 1 inch pieces
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 cans (14 oz each) chicken broth
  • 1 can (4 oz) chopped green chiles, drained
  • 1 cup mini bell peppers, chopped (any color)
  • 2 springs oregano
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 3 cans white beans, drained
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • Sliced jalapeno pepper

Instructions

  1. Combine chicken, onion, garlic, broth, green chilis, peppers, oregano, cumin, and beans in a large slow cooker. Stir. Add salt and pepper, if desired. Cook on low for 7 hours until chicken is cooked through.
  2. Top each serving with cheese and, if desired, sliced jalapeno pepper.




Slow Cooker Creamy Chicken Stroganoff

Slow Cooker Creamy Chicken Stroganoff

Ingredients

  • 3 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs, cut into 1-in. pieces
  • 2 cans condensed cream of chicken soup, undiluted
  • 1/2 cup white wine or chicken broth
  • 2 large portobello mushrooms caps, sliced
  • 2 cups sour cream
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • Hot cooked egg noodles or other pasta
  • Pepper
  • Chopped fresh parsley,

Instructions

  1. Place chicken, a large slow cooker. Pour wine and soup on top. Cook, covered, on high 3 hours. If you need to cut the chicken into smaller pieces, do so now and return to the slow cooker.
  2. Now add the mushrooms. Cook, covered, on high until mushrooms are tender, 1 hour and 30 minutes longer. Stir in sour cream and salt. Serve over noodles; sprinkle with pepper and top with parsley.




Foil-packet Roasted Fish with Vegetables

I am going to write out these instructions in a more general way as things will vary depending on how many people you're serving, etc. Cut off a large piece of foil and spray with cooking spray. You can line this with parchment paper if you do not wish to use the foil. Add as many veggies as you like. In today's video I add spinach, sugar snap peas, and radishes. Place your fish on top. Cover the foil packet so the fish and veggies are all enclosed. Roast in the oven on 400 degrees. If your fish is frozen, you will be roasting for 30 - 35 minutes. If the fish is thawed, you will roast the packet for around 20 minutes. Always test the fish to see if it is done before serving. Serve the fish and veggies over rice or noodles. This is a very easy way to cook fish and it's easy to clean up too!

Comment of the Week
Heather B. writes, "I really enjoy your interviews with Dr. Tae, she is so kind and knowledgeable. I'm so glad you talked about portion size, this was so helpful! I have a set of beautiful flow blue china from the late 1800s, the dinner plates are 8", the size of a salad plate today!"

Hi Heather! I am fascinated by the changing of plate size over time. Modern plates are indicative of our larger portion sizes. Thanks for watching!

I hope you enjoyed today's What's for Dinner video. If you have any great recipes, please let us know what you've been making in the comment section. Your comment could be chosen as comment of the week on the blog.
