Berry Almond Breakfast Polenta: A healthy 10-Minute breakfast recipe

This is one of my favorite breakfast recipes. It might even be one of my favorite One Hungry Mama recipes ever. It's a beautiful thing when a handful of humble ingredients come together quickly to make something delicious and elegant. And that's exactly what happens with this Berry Almond Breakfast Polenta. One of the things that I love most about polenta is that, despite being nothing more than cornmeal, it feels luxurious. Compared to its down-home American counterpart, oatmeal, polenta is down-right elegant. But don't let that fool you into thinking that it's hard to make or should be kept only as a decadent treat. You can make this quick breakfast just as easily on a rushed weekday morning as you can for a Sunday brunch with friends (who will think you're very fancy). (More after the jump)

Skinny Fettucini Alfredo

I don't know if you've noticed that I haven't been posting many pasta recipes lately. See, I have this problem. It's a pasta problem: Once I start eating it, I cannot stop—especially if it's tossed in a rich tomato sauce or creamy sauce with cheese. So, even though my family loves pasta—like loves it—they have been suffering from not-enough-pasta syndrome. I got complaints. Saw signs of withdrawal. And have even watched them wolf down an excess of pasta while at restaurants where, finally, it was available to them. I was depriving them and, honestly, myself, and have decided that it's time to deal with my pasta problem. You probably thinks that means I'm ready to work on some willpower. Well, you're wrong. At least that's not my immediate plan. Right now, I've decided to think of ways to lighten up my favorite classic pastas like this "skinny" Fettucini Alfredo. Someone on my One Hungry Mama YouTube channel asked me to share more pasta recipes (doh!) and it was the perfect time to come clean about my problem and share this recipe. Because if I can help just one other person who has a pasta problem too, it's all worth it. (more after the jump)
