Great for anyone going low carb OR who has so many zucchini, they don't know what to do!! :) We found the sauce to be very mild. I think it would be better with twice as much garlic. I boiled my zucchini slices for about 3 minutes so they were partially cooked. I wanted to make sure they were soft in the finished dish or I knew the kids wouldn't eat them. ;) The cottage cheese provides a slightly tangy note. I think we would have preferred ricotta, but that is personal taste. I use my 11x7 baking dish and got 6 pieces the size of what you see in my photos. Both of the guys ate two so it fed 4 of us, and I double the meat. Adjust the recipe accordingly for your family.
These are SO good! Wonderful for buffets, entertaining, luncheons or picnics, or even as a late night snack. This recipe makes 42 roll-ups, so no need to double, unless you are serving a really big crowd. Make sure that the cheese and ham are sliced paper-thin, have your deli slice it for you. You'll love these!
During the holidays my family has a longstanding tradition of baking cookie trays for family and friends. This year, my circle includes a friend who has been advised by her doctor to dramatically reduce her carbohydrate intake. Not wanting to leave her out of the cookie circle, I tracked this recipe down on the web and have posted it here for others interested in low-carb baking. The resulting cookie is a little crumbly like a shortbread with a soft nutty flavor. I like the variation, my own, of adding the egg as the cookie holds together more and has a thin marzipan like center. A bit too rich for my low-fat taste buds but a certain hit for a low-carb diet. According to the recipe these have about 2.7g carbs per cookie.
Attention Atkins fans and diabetics! Tired of paying top-dollar for small bottles of low-carb, sugar-free, pancake syrups that don't really taste very good anyway? Here's a syrup my DH really likes! Thicken more if you like! Prefer an orange syrup? Feel free to substitute other extracts for the maple and vanilla extract!
Saw this made on a Foodtv show and thought it would be fun to make with DS. We tried the other day and he had a glorious time. They are quite tasty too. Make these as spicy or salty as you want. Change the seasonings for totally different snack. Please note that they can quickly go from baked to burnt.
This is one of those "from the dietitian" deals. I don't know where she gets this stuff, but it's pretty darn good. The hospital where she works always has good food and I actually don't mind eating there. But then again, when you're in the hospital on a 1200 cal. diet instead of your totally flexible at-home carb counting diet, you'll eat just about anything except the baked hamburger steak.
These are really good and have the added bonus of very little fat! We eat these often during the summer, sometimes in place of oven "fries" made with potatoes. You can add some cayenne pepper for a kick if you want. Give them a try and tell me what you think! EDIT!: Given some reviewers advice, I tried them again. 45 minutes was way too long for us, we just ended up with a crispy shell and no zucchini left. But 30 minutes was very good, keeping the taste of the zucchini, with one turn. The problem with the "flouriness" not cooking away, I've found that if you spray them VERY well with cooking spray it resolves this problem for me. I'm editing the recipe to reflect this.
I've only eaten brussel sprouts steamed, until I found this recipe. This is from my mom's 500 Low-Carb Recipes' cookbook by Dana Carpender. I added the lemon juice.
This recipe has lots of possibilities!
