Diet Plateau Crushing Muffin Recipe

Yes, you read that right.  It seems impossible, yet this is a Diet Plateau Crushing Muffin Recipe.  I discovered it as a joke.

Zero Carb Golden Pancake Syrup

The morning I first poured Zero Carb Golden Pancake Syrup on my pancakes I was so happy!  I mean dance-around-the-kitchen-with-the-jug-of-syrup-happy. Last summer my SIL made Buttermilk syrup that was so good you mostly just wanted to forget the pancakes and get out a cup.  My quest has been to develop something like this nectar but […]

This Speedy Shrimp Scampi is a great company dish (or a nice the-kids-are-in-bed-date-night-at-home-supper). 🙂 Low carbing requires a lot of ‘from scratch’ cooking and so when I can find a few shortcuts, I take them.  This recipe comes together quickly using pre-cooked shrimp and canned tomatoes.  It can be on the table in just under 30 […]

Low Carb Almond Flour Biscuits

I created this recipe for Low Carb Almond Flour Biscuits recently.  Here’s why: I had to admit to myself that I really missed bread.

Taco Zucchini Lasagna

Taco Zucchini Lasagna was created because I was in the mood this week for something warm, festive and a little different. The idea of a low carb Mex-Italian fusion dish was intriguing and had some challenges.   They were tri-fold ; #1. Finding or creating just the right low carb lasagna-type noodles. #2. Making a marinara ala Mexico.  #3. Keeping […]

Nested Meatballs ~ Low Carb

I just had to make a recipe for Nested Meatballs.  Had to.  Someone on Facebook shared a video about spaghetti muffins and I really, really wanted them.  But they were definitely not low carb. My solution was to get a spaghetti squash and try it out.  Fortunately spaghetti-squash-as-crust was not unfamiliar territory for me as I’d […]

Zucchini Patties with Basil

Zucchini patties are an old family favorite at our house. They are great in the fall when you find those last few enormous zucchinis hiding in the garden. Often Zucchini dishes turn out too soft or soggy. I use a trick to overcome this problem when making this recipe. After shredding the zukes, I place all […]
