Low carb friendly version of a fun summer treat, this is a pretty dish to bring to pot lucks or picnics, it is really a cheesecake with a nut crust. I adapted this from a recipe posted by Bob on low carb site, tried it over July 4th holiday and it was a winner. For the sugar free sweetner, I used a mix of granular Splenda and sugar free French vanilla syrup, which you can find in the coffee aisle of any supermarket.
Real pancakes, no pork rinds or soy flour- made with almond flour, baking powder, eggs, etc. I experimented with a combo of recipes and came up with a winner. I added pecan pieces to the batter, you could add blueberries or anything to make your favorite pancakes.
Light, refreshing truly low carb treat made with s/f jello, yogurt and frozen whipped topping, and is low fat, low sugar and perfect for any diet. This is an old clipping from a Woman's Day (?) magazine. Prep time does not include chilling time.
From several low carb sites, a truly no bake no fuss, sinfully rich dessert that is 7 grams carbs for 1/2 cup. Try it, you just may love it! For those curious about the name, you may privately e mail me.
A Paul Newman recipe that calls for crisping cooked orechiette pasta in oil and serving with broccoli, fresh parmesan and pine nuts. It sounds divine for a special meal, suppose you could sub small shells.
Very flavorful and quick turn to an old favorite, boneless chicken breasts. The difference is the addition of grated lemon rind, vermouth and yogurt, and of course a splash of cinnamon. This is from a newspaper food column that's older than dirt.
Had leftovers from a fresh turkey and wanted something with pizazz.I started out with LorenLou's Best Leftover Turkey Gumbo, but changed it so much it became a different recipe.The main diff is using ground chorizo sausage to make mini meatballs, ading tomatoes, shrimp and okra.I also cut out some cooking time cuz DH and kids were hungry and couldn't wait!
Ok, I'll be honest. You will not swoon in an ectacy of chocolate oblivion after you eat these.These are low carb, for crying out loud! These are easy to make and pretty tasty for something normally forbidden on low carb diets.
A yummy sounding wrap using my favorite condiment, caponata, which is a melange of eggplant,capers,peppers, olives, tomatoes. You can find these tiny cans most anywhere, likely in the ethnic section. This is adapted from a company cookbook, author unknown.
This sounds divine and I will be making this next weekend, a low carber's dream, spinach and cheese stuffed salmon. From a low carb chef's posting from Food Network. If desired, you could add roasted red pepper slices to the filling.
This makes a to die for super rich seafood bisque, chocked full of seafood such as shrimp, crab, salmon, clams and cod and is lower carb than most,due to no potatoes. Hint for low carbers: use Wondra "instant flour" and all you will need is about 1 or 2 TBS to thicken. The original recipe was obtained from a local restaurant.
This is my version of Ruby Tuesday's New Orleans Tilapia. Tilapia fillets are baked then topped with alfredo sauce, sauteed red peppers and garlic cooked shrimp. I'm not very good at copycatting recipes, but we had this last night and it was mighty fine.
A refreshing summer salad, from our local upscale grocery store. The sweetness of the cantaloupe balances the mild heat of the sopressata. If you don't care for feta, you could sub any fresh cheese, mozzarella, provolone or asiago would be divine.
A nice, no fuss way you can use those turkey leftovers, very colorful, have not yet tried it myself. I have no idea where it originated, but it's got all of the basics,and no cream o' crap: just turkey, eggs, cheese, pesto, garlic, rice, fresh basil, fresh tomatoes, green peppers, green onions, etc.
This brownie batter comes from a mix, but the difference is adding rice crisp like cereal and chocolate covered toffee bits. If you are looking for a different brownie to prepare and you don't have a lot of time to do it in, consider these. I usually bake at the minimum time, sometimes less, to get the moistest bar.
This is my quick version of chicken pho, which is a fragrant, hearty Vietnamese inspired soup that can be eaten any time of the year. The broth is made fragrant with spices, ginger, garlic and veggies, which you can choose to keep, or toss. The spices/ginger/garlic can be contained in cheesecloth, or a tea infuser. This can be made low carb by omitting the noodles.
