In a time crunch and need a recipe that’s ready in a certain amount of time? This feature is for you. Recipes share the approximate Prep, Cook, and/or Total time they take to make.
2. Course & Cuisine
This section details what course the dish is best for (but feel free to make it for any time) and what its country of origin is.
3. Diet Labels
All of my recipes are Trim Healthy Mama (THM) approved. Since this is the case, I have added this label so that you can quickly and easily identify what fuel type each recipe falls under. Here are what the acronyms beside this label stand for (you can learn more by reading the Trim Healthy Mama book).
- Fatastic (THM S)=The S stands for Satisfying. These recipes have fat as the primary fuel source and are low in carbs.
- Carbalicious (THM E)=The E stands for Energizing. These recipes have healthy carbs as the primary fuel source and are low in fat.
- Neutralific (THM FP)=The FP stands for Fuel Pull. These recipes are low in both carbs and fat.
- Fusiontacular (THM XO)=The XO stands for Crossover. These recipes are high in both healthy carbs and fat.
Most of these recipes are versatile and fit in with many other diet lifestyles besides THM. To help you identify these other diets, I provide a label that lists them with acronyms. Here are what these acronyms stand for:
- DF=Dair Free
- EF=Egg Free
- GF=Gluten Free
- LC=Low Carb
- LF=Low Fat
- NF=Nut Free
- SF=Sugar Free
This lets you know how much the recipe makes. If you need to adjust this amount, you can increase or decrease it.

6. Star Rating
If you enjoyed one of my recipes, I would be thrilled if you left me a star rating! To do this, simply click on the desired star in the recipe itself (may not work on some mobile devices) or drop down to the comments section. Click on one of the stars and leave a comment as you normally might (you can simply say “Love it,” give a more detailed commentary, explain what you served, or whatever you like). Once you’re done, submit the comment review.
7. Print Recipe
If you’d like to print the recipe, simply click on the “Print” button. A new tab should open and a window/section with the printing options should appear. It should look something like this (may vary from browser to browser; best done on a laptop or desktop computer):
8. Nutrition Facts
Towards the bottom of each recipe card is a rectangle with that recipe’s Nutrition Facts (helpful for diets that need to focus on numbers). These nutrition facts are based off the ingredients that I used when I made the final recipe so may vary slightly based on brands and types that you use (as well as tweaks that you make).
One measurement that is occasionally used in some of my recipes (especially when using THM stevia) is a doonk. This is a made-up term by the Trim Healthy Mama creators Pearl and Serene. When you purchase THM stevia, you have the option of also getting a free doonk measuring spoon/scoop. Or you can buy a set of 5 doonk scoops or a nice stainless steel one with the THM measuring spoons.
If you just want to know how much a doonk is, well, one doonk equals 1/32 teaspoon. A wee pinch will do.
In addition to the above, you are also able to save any recipe on my website to your Yummly recipe box. To do this, just click on the on the blue Yum button that appears with the other social media share buttons at the top and bottom of each recipe page.
Print and Jump Buttons
At the top of each recipe post are two yellow buttons. One says “Print Recipe.” This simply prints the recipe without your needing to scroll down to the recipe card. The other says “Jump to Recipe.” Click this and the page auto scrolls down directly to the recipe card.
