Low Carb Tiramisu

It is my birthday today and I thought I would let you in on some tidbits about myself. I am a pretty quiet person, so I don’t always put information about myself on the blog, but I thought I would throw some fun facts about me on here to give you a better idea of what I am like. First off, I was married at age 20 (12 years ago… you do the math! lol)

Tiramisu

Introvert/Extrovert: TOTAL Introvert! You can often find me in the woods by myself.

My Most Memorable Birthday: It was my 25th birthday, my mom secretly signed me up for my first running race called the Bluegill Bash in Medford, WI (my hometown). I was SO nervous, but I took first place! I even beat the local Iron Man Triathlete! I won a gift certificate to High View (a restaurant that I worked at in high school that is on a beautiful lake). Afterwards, my whole family and oldest friend, Marla (we were friends since birth), came to High View to celebrate. Then we drove back to my parent’s cabin and sat on the dock to fish until dusk. I caught a 26 inch walleye that night too!

My second favorite birthday was 5 years ago when I was asked to do a live television segment at the Minnesota State Fair on how to eat healthy at the fair. That same day I also did a live segment on Cities 97 radio show. So on our way to the fair, I had a radio interview in the car at 8am. Then Craig and I ran around and had food gathered that I had picked out that I would eat while trying to stay healthy at the fair (my favorite was the prosciutto wrapped asparagus with mascarpone cheese). After the live television show, Craig and I strolled the fair enjoying live music at the Linnie Lodge, checked out the baby animals, as well as other attractions. The day finished at the fair with a live performance of The Prairie Home Companion.

Favorite Book: A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson

Favorite Movie: Fried Green Tomatoes

Favorite TV show: I’m not a huge fan of TV, but I LOVE MasterChef!

Dream Car: 1969 baby blue convertible Volkswagen Bug (but it would have to be an automatic…any mechanics out there reading this!?)

Favorite Concert: Brandie Carlile in Bayfield, WI at Big Top Chautauqua (that was also my last concert… the boys came soon after that)

Favorite Flower: Forget-me-nots

Dream Vacation: Paddle boarding the beaches of Thailand or hiking New Zealand

Dream Date: Biking around the lakes in Minneapolis, stopping at a cute new coffee shop for a long conversation and visiting with Craig, then paddle boarding and finishing the day with a picnic while enjoying live music at Lake Harriet Band-shell.

Shocking Fact: I LOVE to bow hunt and fish

Hobbies: kayaking, yoga, running, biking, swimming, snowboarding (but I hate the cold), play guitar and piano

Previous Job: Outdoor Education/Rock Climbing instructor/Yoga Teacher

Favorite Job: (besides this one!) I worked at a coffee shop in High School where my love of baking started

First Job: Plumber (helped my dad who owns a Plumbing/Heating Business)…definitely NOT my favorite job! I remember having to go into small, underground tunnels which was very unpleasant!

What’s the Strangest Thing I’ve Ever Eaten: Craig traveled all over for his previous jobs and one trip to Japan, he brought home dried bird egg that were about the size of a thumb nail and black… totally gross! Or some raw sea animal that Craig ordered at a sushi restaurant.

Favorite Cuisine: Is dessert a cuisine? lol! I guess I would say BBQ (I could eat a hamburger on a Protein Bun every day) and I love Thai food.

Favorite Dessert: Tiramisu! But I don’t drink alcohol, so here is my version:

Tiramisu

  • 8 oz mascarpone cheese (or cream cheese)
  • ¾ cup heavy whipping cream
  • ½ tsp rum extract

  • Unsweetened Baking Cocoa to dust in between layers
Instructions
  1. LADYFINGERS: Preheat oven 375 degrees F and place parchment paper on 2 cookie sheets.
  2. Separate the eggs and beat yolks with natural sweetener for about 4 minutes; then add in vanilla.
  3. In a separate bowl beat the whites until egg whites form stiff peaks.
  4. Fold almond flour and baking powder into egg yolk mixture.
  5. Slowly fold in the whipped egg whites, making sure not to over- mix the batter.
  6. Place the batter into a very large ziplock bag and cut with a scissors ½ inch piece from corner and pipe the batter into ladyfinger shapes, 4 inches long 1 inch wide and about 2 inches apart from each other.
  7. Bake for 6-8 minutes until they are light golden color.
  8. Remove from oven and allow to cool.
  9. COFFEE DIP: Mix all ingredients and set aside and allow to cool.
  10. ZABAGLIONE FILLING: Beat egg yolks until fluffy and pale.

  16. Fold the whipped cream into the mascarpone cheese mixture until smooth.
  17. ASSEMBLY: Layer the 6 lady fingers into a beautiful dish that is at least 8 x 8 and at least 4 inches high (option is to line the dish with parchment paper so you can remove it and serve out of dish, but serving it in a beautiful dish also works) upside down so they absorb more coffee dip.
  18. Spoon 1 tsp of coffee dip on each lady finger.
  19. Layer ⅓ of the "zabaglione" filling over ladyfingers.
  20. Dust with cocoa powder.
  21. Repeat 2 more times.

    Hello, Maria!

    I’m excited to find your website! I’ve been cooking with nut flours and natural alternative sweeteners for about a year now simply by making substitutes from recipes I find online. I love your ideas and just ordered one of your books from Amazon — this could be dangerous!

    If I were to win the mixer, I’d use it for all my baking; right now I’m using a food processor that’s about as old as I am and my Vitamix to get the job done!

    • Jolie says:

      You have so many recipes that I want to try it’s hard to narrow it down! The Pound Cake with Lemon Curd sounds sooo good, I love lemon desserts. But, I’m also a chocolate freak! So, I would love to try all of your chocolate recipes, brownies, cakes. Than, I would move on to the pumpkin desserts. I love to bake, and just started this new journey of weight loss by low carb. I love your blog and am learning so much on how to bake the lc way! Of course the bread recipes, just need to purchase Jay Robb whey! Happy Birthday!!

    Happy birthday Maria! I just want to take a moment to thank you again for everything you have done for my family an I. You have helped in ways I cannot begin to cover. I attribute my children’s health and then never having been sick, not only for your recipes, but for the information you give with them. For my parents becoming healthy and following what you have taught us so the can live longer and healthier to spend more time with me and my children and most importantly each other. But the biggest change has been the boost you have given me to increase my desire for learning. For pointing me in the right direction toward my goals and dreams. Thank you Maria. We love you and hope you have a very blessed birthday!

  • Emily clear says:

    Hi Maria, I just found this blog. I am eager to hunt the website for inspirational healthified recipes. I’d use the kitchen aid mixer to try out new recipes all weekend just from pure excitement!

  • Patty says:

    Happy, Happy Birthday!!!! I now have 3 of your books and am loving them!!!

  • Matthew B says:

    I would try all of your recipes that use “non-traditional” flour. I’m sure its not just me, but whenever I use almond flour or any other kind, my hand mixer (or mixing by hand) takes a lot longer and seems to be a lot more firm. So the kitchen aid would be AMAZING!

    -Matthew

  • Norma says:

    Happy Birthday Maria, Thank you for sharing your life with us in such a beautiful way!!

Cheezy Bacon Scones, Pinwheel Crackers, Ranch Dressing, Cheese It Crackers, Nacho Chips…of course I had to taste them every one, and yummm–eeeee! Thanks so much to you and your ability to create healthy food. See…? We need balance…I’m a total recipe follower and not a creative type in this area! Love Tiramisu, and can’t wait to try it!

  • Karen says:

    Happy birthday! Would love to enter this contest but am not on facebook so guess I’ll never know how to submit six more entries. 🙂

  • Anne-Marie says:

    Happy, happy birthday, Maria!!!! I have three of your books (Kids, Sweets, Savory) and love them all! If I win the mixer, I’d probably use it to make your “Healthified” Pumpkin Bread first. It’s still pretty hot down here in Mississippi, but I’m ready for the fall and pumpkin recipes! 🙂

  • Stacey Bennett says:

    I would love to win the Kitchen Aid mixer and would use it for tiramisu, bread, and cheesecake!

  • Gramzo says:

    Happy Happy Birthday! The question should be “What would I NOT use the Kitchenaid mixer for?” That would be easier to answer. I use a mixer for so many of your recipes. Amazing Bread, “Healthified” Chocolate Chip Cookies, Chocolate Zucchini Cake, Indian Fry Bread (would be amazing to whip the egg whites up!)

  • Chris says:

    Happy Birthday!! God bless you!!

  • Kimberly says:

    Happy Birthday!! It’s YOUR Birthday but one lucky winner gets a mixer!!!! Awesome:)

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! It’s been about a month I’d say of my total surrender to the Maria & Craig way of healtified nutrition and I can honestly say I have not had a single craving! I’ve not had success with every recipe I tried, but I enjoy the challenge 😉

    I have 3 of your books and love them all!

    My favorites so far are the desserts too! Anything with pie crust :-). Lemon bars, coconut cream pie. I want to try next the Macadamia Nut Torte….

  • Betty says:

    Hi Maria!
    I love your cookbooks! I just found out from my doctor that I am insulin resistant and one point away from being pre-diabetic. This news has given me the boost I need to go “full on Maria style!” I am on day 5 now and I feel better already! I am going to order the books of yours that are missing from my collection. I am so grateful to have you as a resource so I can continue this new lifestyle! And the mixer would be awesome! The first thing I would make in it would be your tiramisu. Then on to protein pancakes!! And that royal blue would look beautiful in my kitchen! 🙂

  • Alicia S says:

    If I were to win I would try that tiramisu! Love that stuff! Happy Birthday Maria!

  • Bonnie says:

    Happy Birthday, Maria!! I would be making the tiramisu….it sounds amazing!

  • Sara says:

    Hmmm I think the pumpkin bread since fall is coming up.

  • Brenda says:

    I am sad to say that I don’t have a wonderful Kitchen-aid mixer and as a result, I have not been able to make any of your delicious items that require this – so I’ll start with the tiramisu! Thanks and Happy Birthday to you – you are an inspiration! (I’m an adoptive mom of two boys also)

  • DameLaila says:

    I LOVE Swerve sweetener! I have 2 bags on my shelves, and an 8 oz. container on my table that I refill. Tried making confectioners swerve but had a fail, so I’m looking forward to them getting it. My only wish is that they could make it so it dissolves in cold liquids (love me some iced tea).

  • Tracy Evans says:

    Happy Birthday!! I hope to order a couple of books within the week!!

  • pattie says:

    Wishing you a very happy birthday with lots of healthy desserts!!

  • DameLaila says:

    OOPS! Forgot to say I’d make anyn/most all recipes using the KitchenAid as I don’t have a mixer!

  • Tracy Evans says:

    Protein bread

  • S Woodruff says:

  • Samantha Fisher says:

    Happy Happy birthday Maria! I’ve heard SO many great things about your clean eating plans from 2 co workers who have great success, i can’t wait to start it myself. But I would LOVE to use this stand mixer to make that Tiramisu that you just posted. My boyfriends’ birthday is in 2 weeks & that’s his favorite dessert!

  • Aimee says:

    I will be trying your Tirimasu recipe real soon!! Absolutely LOVE Swerve (I just bought a bunch online) and use it in most all my baking!! LOVE the blue stand alone mixer!! I am starting to have problems with my wrist and thumb joint so holding a regular mixer these days is getting harder and harder so the stand alone would make things soooo much easier!! You have a great birthday!! And thank you for your wonderful site!!!

  • Kathy Powell says:

    I will make the cheesecake!!

  • Wafa says:

    Hi bought two of your books recently and reading through them and learning so much! Thanks for sharing. I would use the mixer for any recipe that requires egg whites beaten.

  • Amy says:

    You share a birthday with my sweet nephew and my best friend. A good day to be born! HBD, Maria!

  • anna says:

    I would use the mixer for this tiramisu and your cheesecakes!

  • Roni says:

    Zuchini bread or muffins!

  • Debbie says:

    I would make your Protein Bread & Amazing Bread recipes first using the stand mixer and then all your other recipes I have bookmarked!

  • Londa says:

    this would make cooking so much easier, I think I would start with a batch of protein rolls/buns

  • Evelyn says:

    Hi Maria, I’ve been a fan for years! Thanks so much for this opportunity!

  • Evelyn says:

    Oops! Just saw that I need to name a recipe! We love your coconut flour cinnamon rolls!

  • Barbara says:

    Happy, Happy Birthday, Maria! If I win the mixer, I would use it for your Amazing Bread, and many, many other of your fabulous breads and desserts. When I first started on a no-grain, no-sugar diet, I was frequently at a loss for recipes- until I discovered your site. What a wealth of ideas! And everything I have tried has been so delicious!! My family and friends rave as well  Thank you for all you do to make all of us more “healthified”!

  • Heidi says:

    Happy Birthday and I hope I win! 🙂

  • Kelly Buzan says:

    Happy birthday, Maria! If I win I look forward to making any of your recipes that requires stiffly beaten egg whites because that takes FOREVER to do with my little old hand mixer!

  • Tara says:

    I would love to win the kitchenaid mixer. I would whip up some of your Amazing Bread for my family 🙂 Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  • Norma says:

    Happy Birthday, Maria, and Blessings for a wonderful year! Would love to make your sub rolls.

  • Happy birthday! This tiramisu makeover looks wonderful. 🙂

  • Adel de Weever says:

    I wish you a very happy birthday Maria, you are an outstanding lovely,wonderful person. I am blown away by everything you do. I have most of your books through amazon and am trying to live the Maria way.

    I also wish you much success in your life, what you do to help others gain their health is nothing short of amazing. Hats off to you!

    I am looking forward to trying many more recipes, the amazing bread would be mt first choice, I need more practice with the bread recipes.

    Take care and have a beautiful day with your family and friends.

    i

  • Adel de Weever says:

    I forgot to mention, my daughter and I love swerve, it’s the best sweetener we have tried. Thanks so much for all your recommendations, I just wish we could order from your amazon store, we live in Canada and they do not ship to us for some reason, which is such a shame. Happy Birthday again

  • Corly Wilson says:

    If I were lucky enough to win the KitchenAid mixer I would try making your healthified Danish pastries again. Last time I made them, I didn’t beat the eggs for long enough and my batter fell flat (they still tasted good though). A stand mixer would allow you to beat egg whites forever without getting tired! 🙂 Thank you for the opportunity to win Maria and thank you for everything you do!

  • Nemours says:

    Hi Maria, Happy Birthday! I’d like to make “Micah’s Birthday Cake.” Thanks for the opportunity to win this mixer.

  • Karla says:

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MARIA!!! Hope it’s fun and special! Have all of your books! So many favorite recipes…Spinach Artichoke Tart, HEALTHIFIED Pumpkin Bread, Lemon Bars, Blueberry Crunch Cereal with VANILLA EXTRACT, “Yum”tella Cupcakes, HEALTHIFIED Nutella, & Chocolate Chip Cookies, to name a few! Would love to win the beautiful stand mixer from Swerve! Love using Swerve!

  • Terri says:

    Happy Birthday Maria!! I’d love to try out any of the bread recipes if I won the mixer to start with. I’ve never had a stand mixer, so I’m sure I could find tons of your recipes that this would be great to make with.

  • Rebecca says:

    Maria,

    What a great giveaway! I would love this mixer. Over the past three years I have been changing the entire way I eat and cook. Your books have been the icing on the cake. There is no doubt that investing in quality kitchen tools makes it so much easier and worth it. This would be an awsome addition.
    Thanks for the opportunity

  • Karen says:

    happy happy birthday! love your blog. and would like to make cinnamon rolls. and actually any of your baking treats!

  • I would use it for everything! Mine is getting a tad old and I could use a new one. 🙂 Happy Birthday!

  • Leigh says:

    Hi Maria!

    When I win the mixer, I will use it for the pizza crust, the cream puffs, your garlic bread, and your breakfast hot pockets. I love all of your recipes and I can’t wait to try each and every one of them. I own 3 of your cookbooks, and I look forward to purchasing more in the future. Congrats on the Healthful Blog award! Keep on doing what you do! 🙂

  • Carolyn says:

    I would be making that birthday tiramisu because it is just about my all-time favorite indulgence.

  • Laura says:

    There are many recipes I would love to make, but my next desire is to dive into your donuts. Specifically the chai ones you have 🙂 hope you have a great birthday and thank you for all you do 🙂

  • Kate says:

    Well, there’s so many to choose from. The chocolate zucchini bundt cake, the pumpkin bread, the birthday cake that you made for your son, the chocolate chip cookies, etc. The list goes on and on.
    Yummo!

  • Joey says:

    Id use it for any kind of cookies. Happy Birthday!!

  • Terry N says:

    Happy Birthday!!!!! Love, Love, Love the Crock Pot Cookbook…..I also bought the Kids book while it was on sale…I already have 2 other cookbooks…
    I made the Cordon Bleu chicken, Lasagna, & Tamale Pie this weekend for this weeks menu….I love the Amazing bread, but can’t figure out why it keeps coming out purple colored. Tastes good though. Off to make some peanut flour waffles and pizza bases for the freezer….
    Thank you for all you do….
    Terry

  • Revonda says:

    Happy Birthday! Mine was yesterday. I would use the mixer for everything… Bread, desserts like e zucchini bunt cake and turtle cheesecakes and whipping those egg whites for soooo many recipes!

  • Gee says:

  • Barbara says:

    I would make your Turtle Cheesecake ,with Swerve . yummo

    Thanks for the chance to win. Looking forward to downloading another book soon.

  • HeatherK says:

    I would use the Kitchen Aid to try all your recipes! Thank you for the giveaway!

  • Joanie Shubin says:

    I can’t wait to try the bundt cake. I am a huge fan of the zucchini chocolate muffins and zucchini hummus. Thank you Maria!!!!

  • Kim Douglas says:

    Happy Birthday! It was pleasant to read your favorite birthdays, esp the part of catching the huge walleye at the end of the day already filled with great events. I am always pleased to know a little of someone who is behind what I am reading or listening to, involved and interested in.

    Tiramisu is my favorite also, (oh, the mascapone and expresso!) Your recipe is appealing as it contains no sugar or gluten–both problems for me. I have never used Swerve and look forward to giving it a try–what a door this could open for me to have desserts again. Dairy also bothers me but if I only have it once in a great while, I am OK. It has been a long time since I’ve had tiramisu because of the intolerances so I would make it first with the ultimate dream appliance–a KitchenAid Stand Mixer.

    Thank you!

  • Theresa says:

    Oh my gosh, this Tiramisu looks awesome! It would have to be the first thing I would make!

  • Jennifer Still says:

    Happy birthday, Maria! Hope it’s a good one!

    My whole life has changed since finding your site (and Swerve, by the way!) and there are a million recipes the mixer would come in handy for. I think there are some cakes with my name on it that need to be made – perhaps the chocolate layer cake with coconut frosting? YUM!

  • Allison says:

    Happy birthday Maria! You’re a huge inspiration to me.

  • Kristina says:

    Happy Birthday!!!! Thank you for the recipe for the Tiramisu. Sounds so good. Thank you for the chance to win this mixer. What a blessing it would be.

  • Rheanna Smith says:

    Maria, my husband is very impressed that you love to bow hunt!!!!

  • Sara Hawker says:

    I want to try the Amazing bread and your hamburger buns. I miss that the most!

  • Ariene says:

    I want the mixer to make the oreos and milk! As a Type 1 diabetic, I say thank you from the bottom of my heart for so many delish recipes that make me feel “norml” again!

  • Debbie says:

    Happy Birthday! Thank you for the Tiramisu recipe

  • LaDonna says:

    I would make the protein bread and some sweet treats for my family! Thanks for the opportunity to win such an awesome product.

  • Angela says:

    hmmm I would make your amazing bread and cinnabon coffee cake!! I love cinnamon!!

  • Mary Beth says:

    Just bought your 30 plan! Mom of ten, also married at 20 (ummm, I am a few year older than you….. :). I am using my moms 35 yeqr old kitchen aid-I would give this one to my oldest daughter, about to be married.

  • Alicia says:

    If I were to win the mixer, the first thing I would make with it would be your garlic bread. My family and I have been eating healthy for 15 weeks now and have found substitutes for desserts but until I discovered your books on amazon, we still had no decent bread substitution. Excited to get to try your recipes, I just know that a new mixer is a must in order to get those egg whites stiff!

  • raquel says:

    So fun! Happy Birthday! I use the mixer for the protein buns!

  • Janis Inman says:

    I would make your Tiramisu recipe.

    Your protein bread or sub bread recipes.

    Happy Birthday Maria 😀 I love sharing everything I am learning from you with my friends and family. Whenever they ask what I am doing to lose weight and get healthy, I simply refer them to your website! It is a great place to get educated. If I were to win the mixer, I would keep it out and ready for your Amazing Bread recipe. I have to make 3 loaves at a time because my family of 5 goes through it so fast.

  • Lauren Jones says:

    Happy Birthday sweet Maria!!!! Hope your day is amazing!!!

  • Pam says:

    Happy Birthday Maria, and thank you for your wonderful blog and all your great recipies, of which I’ve made several!

  • Joanne Mekis says:

    Happy Birthday Maria! I have been following you for a few months and have lost 16 pounds since June through eliminating most starchy carbs and stepping up the exercise. I am wearing clothes that I haven’t worn in years and now will go outside in a tanktop with no over shirt. My mom even said today I can’t believe you wore that outside because she knows how I was. Thanks for your good work. Your guys are super cute. I would use the mixer to make the molten chocolate cakes.

  • Lynn Mercer says:

    I would love use the mixer to make your bread recipe. Although there are still many other recipes I want to try. I just received my third cookbook from you so I’m excited to get started. YUMMO!

  • Virginia says:

    I love your recipes, especially the Protein pancakes, I have sent them on to my friend for their annual paniecake day..That is the day the starting fostering their now adopted 3 children.

  • I would use the mixer for Tiramisu for sure!! But, most of all I would use it for 99% of your recipes. I LOVE everything you give us and have made most of them. I currently don’t have a mixer so using a whisk and my hands has been the preferred method up until now. 🙂 I am hear to tell you that sometimes I just make a mess of a recipe doing it this way. LOL!

  • Tina says:

    Happy Birthday Maria!!!

    You have such a beautiful family. I enjoy the recipes you post and would like to thank you for sharing pictures of your family and travels with us!

  • Judy says:

    The first thing I’d try with this would be the protein bread. You make it look so easy with yours in your video, but I’ve never been able to get the same volume!

  • Susan says:

    Zucchini bundt cake!

  • Kelly Weaver says:

    I love the Healthy Metabolism book. I’ve learned so much about food, nutrition and supplements. Making big changes around my house. Thank you.

    I want to wish you a very happy Birthday and many many more! Thank you for a chance to win this beautiful mixer and all your insight and beautiful recipes, if I were to win I would use it to make your Protein Bread/Buns first. Thank you.

  • Darcie says:

    Happy Birthday! Tiramisu

  • Terry day says:

    Hmmm difficult question, provably start with protein buns, then one of the cereals for the kids, and one of the dessert hard to pick one, the tiramisu turned out good without the mixer, maybe another go round with the cinnamon rolls!

  • April says:

    My family makes your panini bread at least once a week! I think using the mixer would help the psyllium spread more evenly for a better textured product! Thanks for the giveaway!

Thank you so much for continuing to share your knowledge with all of us. I love your recipes! I’m hopeful that I will win this amazing KichenAid stand mixer as there are several of your recipes that I avoid because I only have a measly hand mixer. 🙁

  • Tanya says:

  • Melissa Estain says:

    I LOVE tiramisu and cannot wait to enjoy it again with your healthy version of it! It’s been so long since I’ve had tiramisu! Loving and having a great time with your cookbooks! Thank you Maria!

I would love to make a lot of your recipes with this stand up mixer, especially your fudge cookies, sweet and savory breads for Christmas gifts this holiday season that awaits us. I usually make traditional Amish friendship bread, sourdough bread, almond roca, along with some other treats for Christmas gifts, but this year I want to make and give out more healthified treats/breads. Thank you for being such a great inspiration!

  • Mona says:

    Hmmmmm. Where to start…..I would love to try this tiramisu recipe for sure.

  • Jessica Turner says:

    A stand mixer is a must for whipping all those egg whites! Happy Birthday!

  • Rachel P says:

    Protein bread for sure…..and then pretty much all of them! 🙂 🙂

  • Sheridan says:

    Happy Birthday, Maria! Thanks for all you do!

    I would use this for so many things, but your cheetohs and angel food cake, for sure!

  • Sasha says:

    What recipe…. as many as I possibly could!!!!!

  • The 2 recipes I make on a regular basis are Amazing Bread and Zucchini Muffins. I am using an old electric mixer which works, but I could save so much time not having to stand there. Although I am getting more ambidextrous.
    I hold the mixer with one hand and sift the dry ingredient with the other !

  • Jenn Buckner says:

    I would love to use the mixer for your biscuits in your biscuits and gravy recipe.

  • Angie Cameron says:

    I can’t wait to use the mixer to make healthy “Maria” meals for my family that much easier!!!

  • Blanca Stephens says:

    Happy bday! I’d love to use the mixer to make the “Pumpkin cream puffs”

  • Melissa Mirarchi says:

    I’d want to make all of them! I’d probably make some sweets first because I have a pretty strong sweet tooth.

  • Naomi says:

    Hi maria,
    Happy birthday!! For your birthday I bought myself the only book of yours I do not own – the art of eating healthy-kids. It’s the first I bought in your new format and its fab!

    I’m not entering your comp as I am in australia , but would love to know if Swerve is available here?

    Thanks for all your work. Your read is a staple and my whole health has turned around eating by your recommendations.

  • Vixie says:

    Happy Birthday, Maria! I think the first recipe that I would try is the tiramisu. My hubby and I used to go to Olive Garden once a week just for dessert (it was all we could afford at the time) and tiramisu was our favorite. We had six kids at home and that was our weekly date. Most are out of the house now.

  • Georgia Keesler says:

    I want to try the Tiramisu

  • tracy says:

    Zucchini bundt cake sounds awesome

  • Cindy Lannon says:

    I ordered your “Nutritious and Delicious” book a few days ago, so as soon as it arrives I’ll be trying many recipes that would put this mixer to use. P.S. Today I’m still using my Montgomery Ward hand mixer which I received for a wedding gift nearly 29 years ago. Crazy, I know.

  • Jessi says:

    Happy Birthday, Maria! I hope you got all of your wishes! Thanks for sharing healthy alternatives with all of us!

  • Christi says:

    Hi Maria! Happy Birthday to you! I thank you for the opportunity to try and win the mixer. It is something I’ve had my eye on for a long time but just have never bought it for myself!

  • Whitney says:

    Happy birthday Maria! First I just want to thank you for all your wonderful recipes that make this healthy lifestyle so much easier! I would use the mixer for so many things! But I want to try your lemon poppyseed muffins. Thanks again!

  • Sarah says:

    Happy Birthday Maria – if I win the mixer I will try “HEALTHIFIED” CHAI DONUTS or one of your gluten free breads.
    Fingers crossed!! 🙂

  • Lynn says:

    Happy Birthday, Maria

    I love your books!

  • Amy says:

    I would love to use the kitchen aid mixer to whip the egg whites for the amazing bread with conduct flour. I see so many recipes that I would love to try and the kitchen aid mixer would make it a lot easier!!

  • Amy says:

    Oops on auto correct! Coconut flour not conduct flour!

  • Katie Saito says:

    Happy Birthday! I’ve been wanting to try your baguette bread recipe. Would love to win…fingers crossed. 🙂

  • Barbara says:

    I’d use the stand mixer for your protein bread…!

  • Courtney says:

    Happy belated birthday, Maria. Since incorporating “healthified” recipes into our home, my kids don’t like traditional sweets anymore. They are just too sweet. We are all enjoying eating new recipes and knowing they are so much better for us. Pigs in a blanket with a “savory” cinnamon roll dough is a favorite at our house and the stand mixer would make the dough in a snap!

  • Gayle says:

    Can’t wait for next week’s class Happy Birthday to you; my birthday is on Friday. I would SO love this mixer for a birthday present!

  • Gayle says:

    I would use the mixer for the bread and buns recipes; a hamburger on a bun sounds like a great idea for lunch for me.

  • missy says:

    I would use it for the bread recipes, so yummy and versatile!

  • France says:

    Happy Birthday!
    I’m So going to make that Tiramisu, my favourite dessert I think. It was quite hard passing up the restaurant one last Christmas at the Work Lunch!!!

    I’m assuming the mixer is for USA people only?
    Enjoy your week!!!!! And good luck to everyone entering the raffle!

  • France says:

    LOL *Ü* just in case Swerve decide to give away an Australian capable mixer I’d make the protein bread because I still can’t get it right (got it right ONCE!! made it many many many times!!!) 😀

  • Michelle Gauer says:

    Happy Birthday Maria! I love your BLOG and all your information. I have your Secrets of a Healthy Metabolism and love the information. I am a recipe developer myself, but need to learn to develop the “healthified” ones. I would love to make your protein breads in the mixer along with all the other delicious recipes!

  • Drayanna Maria says:

    HaPpY BiRtHdAy Maria.
    Happy to have found you thru Pinetrest. I love your site. I have so much to learn…just started low carb and gluten free cooking. So I was looking for cracker recipes that use almond flour. I would love to win the mixer.

  • Lisa Langford says:

    Pumpkin anything :^)

  • Chris says:

    I love you blog Maria. My daughter has allergies and other health issues. I spend a lot of time in the kitchen cooking and baking to avoid processed foods. I am starting a new life journey, and am in need of a kitchen aide for sure!

  • Eric says:

    Happy Birthday! Love all your recipes and great information.

  • Melinda says:

    I love to bake, it is amazing that I have never received a Kitchen Aid mixer as a gift. I do have a Kitchen Aid hand held mixer. It get the small jobs done well. I haven’t had Tiramisu in years! I would definatly make that!

  • Jamie says:

    I can’t wait to try this tiramisu!

  • Michelle says:

    I would definitely use the mixer to make your Amazing Bread!

    Happy Birthday! I love Tiramisu and I’m going to try this recipe. As for the giveaway, that is awesome. I’ve been wanting one of these mixers.

  • Claudette Melanson says:

    Hi Maria! Hope your birthday was fun and full of love. I just registered for the forum but no approval yet , but I wanted to ask about the moderate protein thing. I didn’t realize you rec that. I go to the gym and lift pretty heavy and have started doing the Good Life Body Pump workout. A really good bodybuilding site with a protein calculator said I need 130 grams. I’m trying to lose fat (about 15-20 lbs) and gain muscle. I’m 5’9″ and 174.8 right now. Am I eating way too much protein or do I need that amount to continue to build muscle? Thanks!!!!

  • Jennifer says:

    I want to try SEVERAL recipes, but the Tiramisu look pretty yummy right now!

  • Jamie says:

    Happy Birthday and thanks for all that you do. I love your “Amazing Bread” and make it at least weekly.

  • Sue in CA says:

    Wishing you a HaPpY Birthday! Double batch of Choc Zucchini Muffins first, then a double batch of Sub Bread!

  • Kat says:

    I would love to win this mixer!

  • Paula says:

    I would use the stand mixer to make more donuts! And to try the protein bread again!

  • Claire says:

    Happy Birthday Maria

  • Olya says:

    Happy birthday! Tiramisu to start with:)

  • Maryann says:

    Happy Birthday, Maria, you young thing ! Love the site and Craig’s “pizza history.” Kudos to him for the healthy guest recipe ….. Amazing Pizza which is truly amazing.

  • kelly says:

    I hope to win the stand mixer so that i canmix the protein bread while making ice cream, multi task like you Maria!

  • Stacy says:

    Happy Birthday Maria!

    I found your recipe for clam chowder “bread bowls” about a year ago, and I’ve been making them ever since! They’re the very best low carb bread I’ve ever had, and have really helped us stick to eating this way for life. I have also recently gotten into low carb baking, big time! This beautiful stand mixer would be a great help in striving to create the perfect cake-frosting recipe. Thanks for all of the excellent info and delicious recipes!

  • Tabatha says:

    This post really sealed the deal on your website being my favorite healthy recipe website. Admittedly I don’t use recipes so much as use them for ideas. Based on your book Secrets to a Healthy Metabolism, I finally cut unfermented soy from my diet, I’ve been dreading this change for years because I’m a vegetarian and eggs don’t really cut it in tacos. I’ve been subbing paneer.

    What just made this officially my favorite site is not the abundant ideas or the sound science behind recommendations or any of the other features that make it invaluable. It was the fact you just said your dream car was a bug. I got my first bug 4 years ago when I was 19, it was orange, had no interior and ran on a per case basis (not to mention I couldn’t drive a stick) and through extensive learning and willpower it’s become my reliable and very attractive (dark green with cream interior) daily driver that moved me from CA to CO this year.

    I love your website because you value all the same health principles I do, and you’re living proof that health isn’t unattainable for the average person.

    I have bad news for you though. There is no automatic beetle. In 1969 they introduced a semi-automatic (no clutch pedal), but there are very few left because the transmissions aren’t as lasting as their manual brothers. However, driving a vintage manual is COMPLETELY different from driving a newer manual. It’s all very intuitive and you can feel everything you’re doing. You’ll feel the car start to shudder before it ever stalls, and it makes learning very easy(when you drive an automatic, you’ll really wonder what to do with your left foot!). I can’t tell you enough it’s worth it to learn, especially if a beetle is your dream car (it was always mine).

    PS. It really helps that beetles are very noticeable to other cars when you’re learning. Even if you drive too slow or don’t shift fast enough, other cars tend to see what you’re doing.

  • Mary says:

    Happy Birthday Maria! I found your blog months ago and bit by bit have changed my way of eating. I am a competitive kickboxer and health-nut. You have exposed me to a whole new way of eating and fueling my body. I’ve had so much success with so many of your recipes and I tell people about your website every chance i get! Thanks for sharing the wealth!

  • Kendra says:

    Happy Birthday!

  • Marisa says:

    OMG!!! I want one of these so bad!

  • Laura says:

    I’ve tried a few times with my little hand mixer to make protein bread, but my egg whites always flop. I’d love to have this mixer so that I can have a good supply of yummy, healthified bread for me and my family. They have also been requesting the cinnamon rolls and I’ve been hesitant to try. My son has ADHD and a mood disorder and I feel so happy when I know I’m feeding him good food is nourishing from the inside out. You and your recipes have already had a huge positive impact on our family!

  • Sam says:

    Belated birthday wishes to you, Maria! I would love to try this Tiramisu recipe with the mixer.

  • Anne Gonzalez says:

    Happy birthday! I love the Kitchenaid stand mixer; I used to have one but don’t anymore… long story that I will not inflict on anyone. I would like to try the psyllium bread recipes in the mixer.

  • Cathy M. says:

    My daughter had been hounding me for a healthified version of Tiramisu, now I can finally make it for her! Thank you so much, I know she’ll love it! This mixer would be perfect for making this recipe 🙂

    Happy birthday! I’m looking forward to your class on Sept. 8.

  • Amy V says:

    I want to try your angel food cake!!!

  • Michelle says:

    I would whip up a batch of your buns, although I’ve been making breads for years (first one age 13) without one of these, I imagine it would be a whole lot easier! Although I must say I do love the process of baking bread sans breadmaker!!

  • Linda says:

I would love the to use the stand mixer for your bread recipes!!

  • Sheri says:

    Happy Birthday!!!
    That stand mixer would be good for any of the bread recipes – I do struggle to get those ‘just right.’

  • Naomi says:

    I’m a new empty nester…never lived alone before, but let me tell you I beginning to find my authentic self! And it’s amazing! I never liked to cook before…food was the enemy for me.

  • Mandy Ferguson says:

    Hi Maria! I found your site when searching gluten-free recipes. My family and I have been GF for almost 5 weeks now, and my gluten-loving husband has been so happy with the foods I have been cooking from your cookbooks and blog! I would love to win the stand mixer, because I know it would be SO great to have to keep trying these new recipes and would cut my prep time! With 3 active kids, that would be a huge bonus! Thank you for all of these!

  • cathy says:

    Definitely for bread 🙂

  • Sandy says:

    I want to make the bread and pizza dough!

  • Sylvia says:

    Today is the first day I’ve seen your blog. I saw a link from the Swerve FB page. Happy Birthday! The first recipe I would try is your Tiramisu, since it is one of my husband’s favorite desserts. I’m excited about your recipes. I am a type 2 diabetic, so it’s low carb for life for me. Thanks for the chance to win the mixer!

  • Becky Lofald says:

    I want to make the protein bread both as buns and as a pizza crust. I need to find a good deep dish pizza pan though. Do you have any recommendations for one?

    I have followed you and Swerve on Twitter but it isn’t working for entries. 🙂

  • Kim says:

    Happy Birthday Maria! I’m always excited to see a new blog post from you in my email. I would make the protein bread and pretty much everything else. BTW, does the psyllium from Frontier keep the bread white instead of black? The powder I had made it black – didn’t look too appetizing. Also, I just got back from vacation. I took my breakfasts and lunches with me (I really enjoyed the Reese’s p.b. cereal recipe) and ate meat and salad out for dinner. I expected to lose a pound or 2 for the week, instead I gained 5.5 pounds. I immediately checked my ankles which did not look swollen. The only thing I could think of was that I had been constipated a could part of the trip (which is not uncommon when I travel) – do you think that could cause this kind of gain. Two days later, I am only up 2.5 pounds – BUT, I’m still up. Any ideas? Thanks for all you do!!

  • Paige says:

  • Kristy B.T. says:
