Whew! I thought I lost this recipe, I've been meaning to post it for ages! Anything that makes me feel like I'm eating like a "civilian", despite the diabetes, is a plus in my book. The original recipe, which was from the Santa Fe New Mexican, had 1 tbs. of molasses in it - I leave it out, but you could use it if you wish. Hope you enjoy this!
I always argue with my husband when he dumps ketchup on prime cuts of beef, but an article in last week's paper gave this recipe in a story about chefs using humble ingredients to make great sauces - and this one really put me in my place!! I am no longer a ketchup snob! I did use Heinz low-carb ketchup to keep this more in line with my low-carb lifestyle.
I bought a big roast at Costco, and threw this in the crock pot with some other ingredients, based loosely on some other recipes I've read here. I have never spent so little time on something that came out so good!
From the book that came with my waffle maker. I make the whole batch, then freeze any leftovers, which become a quick breakfast during the week. These taste like cornbread, so you could have them for lunch or dinner with chili on them, etc.
From Mom's friend Sylvia. It actually calls for two pounds of beef (thus, two by four), but Sylvia only uses one, and I found it sufficient. I put this in the crockpot on warm on a busy afternoon, and had dinner waiting for me. I served it with a salad and tortillas. This is greater than the sum of its parts; I wasn't expecting it to be as good as it was. DH told me "this is the best thing to ever come out of that crockpot!"
A real tasty curry. I have no idea how authentic it is; I got this off the internet from someone who posted it on another site, who had gotten it from a friend of his girlfriends(!). You can add more vegetables to this at the last step to suit your fancy.
From my friend Maria, who knows what good is! This is a pretty easy recipe for company, as long as they like seafood. The last time I made it, I used shrimp, mussels, clams, calamari, and something my fish monger called "rock lobster". They were like mini tails. I also increased the rice to two boxes and four people made this disappear!
A very tasty recipe for fish and a way for me to use all the dill in my garden. This is from a non-cooking friend, who found this recipe for a potluck dinner she attended. She got raves for this and I begged for the recipe.
This is pizza for grownups! From"Everyday Epicurean", which I got in a swap from Evie*! Next time I make it, I may add some feta cheese to the top. We had this on our honeymoon in Provence, where they served it with a bottled of herb-infused olive oil! Delish! This could be dinner, with a salad on the side, or an appetizer, cut in little squares.
