This is a basic cheesecake recipe I discovered a couple years ago when we were following a lo carb lifestyle. We are attempting to get back into it now, so I'm posting my favorites to bee able to keep track of them. I like to add a little more lemon or even substitute another flavor to add different variety of tastes. You can use regular cream cheese, but I prefer to try and lower the fat content as well . The taste will vary depending upon the sugar substitute you use. I prefer splenda as others can leave a bitter taste. It's really important to handle the batter very gently or it will crack on the top.
Spaghetti squash is the only squash I will eat since it's not slimy. I love spicy shrimp and garlic. It is a make to your taste kind of recipe, so adjust to your own tastes. Measurements aren't exact and you'll want to adjust if you don't like as much garlic or spiciness as we do. This is great as leftovers and reheats well in the microwave without the shrimp. Any type of soft Italian bread complements this dish well. You could sub angel hair pasta if you like, but the spaghetti squash keep it lower in carbs.
Game hens are one of our favorite meals and look really impressive for company. I've tried many different recipes and have finally found what we consider the best way to prepare them. Goes great with fresh steamed green beans and red onions or rice side such as rice pilaf or wild rice.
I discovered this when I started eating low carb. I like to use a Merlot for the wine. I serve with fresh steamed green beans or a nice salad. It's very filling and the left overs are just as good in the microwave. I have served this to friends who were shocked to learn it was within their low carb eating diet. If your not concerned about carbs, it can be made with regular flour with the same results. This is a favorite at our house and I have guest that request I make it for entertaining.
This is always a favorite when we entertain. It can be a little tricky to make. The alcohol will cook out of the wine so don't be concerned with the amount. You have to be sure not to over cook the chicken during the browning time or it will be dry. The lemon juice will absorb into the chicken while simmering but the wine mixture might taste bitter while cooking, if so, just and a little more lemon juice and salt. You might want to vary the lemon juice depending upon your personal taste. I like to use Chardonnay, but taste will vary by brand of wine used. I serve it with wild herb and buttered rice. Great the next day also.
Very easy fast meal to prepare. Sauce is not thick like spaghetti sauce but meant to be thin and soupy. The more peppers you use, the hotter it is. Serve with garlic bread to soak up the juice with your meal and a nice green salad to round the meal out. Add more or less spice, peppers, onion and garlic to your taste. The more garlic and onion the better. Add sliced spicy Italian links if desired.
