My chefs!!

Dinner last night was Beef tenderloin and portabella mushrooms, I sauteed some asparagus then topped it with some bacon bits and shredded cheddar! Yumm!
Even my non asparagus eating son said that was a great idea!

And then, since there were leftovers, this morning I used them and added a couple of eggs, and TADA! Breakfast!

I had to add LOTS of cheese and cream cheese to make mine to my liking with the cauliflower mash stuff. Still not creamy enough tho. But it's worth more tweaking.

The cheese chips are super easy. Just put cheese, I use the blended shredded stuff, in a circle size of your choice on PARCHMENT PAPER on a plate and nuke it in the microwave for ABOUT a minute or two. You'll have to watch it closely because the recipe I got said 30-40 secs and it was no where NEAR done. I tried it for two minutes and it was too dark. Still good though. I'm thinking it's closer to a minute and 30-40 seconds. When it begins to get brown, then stop it and let it cool. THEY ARE EXCELLENT!!!!!

Okay, thanks!! I wasn't sure which code to use. You're so right about the food- I'm a little light headed in the afternoons, but the rest of my body feels so much HEALTHIER now.

Your BBQ and the eggs look amazing-- can't wait to go home and try out all these recipes!

FAUX MASHED POTATOES

From fresh cauliflower:
1 small-medium fresh cauliflower, about 16 ounces
1 tablespoon water
1 tablespoon butter
1-2 tablespoons heavy cream
Salt and pepper, to taste

Chop the cauliflower into small pieces and place in a large covered casserole dish. Add 1 tablespoon water; cover and microwave on HIGH 5 minutes. Stir and cook another 5 minutes. Let stand covered 5 minutes; drain briefly. Place in a food processor along with the butter and heavy cream. Process until smooth and creamy, scraping down the sides of the processor occasionally. Season to taste with salt and pepper and reheat in the microwave, if necessary.

Makes about 4 servings or about 2 1/4 cups mashed cauliflower
Do not freeze

From frozen cauliflower:
16 ounce bag frozen cauliflower
2 tablespoons water
1-2 tablespoons butter
Salt and pepper, to taste

Place frozen cauliflower in a casserole with a lid; add the water. Cover and microwave on HIGH about 8-10 minutes, until very tender, stirring occasionally. Drain well and put cauliflower in a food processor. Process until smooth and creamy. Remove to a serving bowl and season with salt and pepper and butter. Reheat in the microwave, if necessary.

Makes about 4 servings
Do not freeze
i did the recipe for fresh and use frozen that had been thawed then added an ounce of cream cheese to the food processor with the cauli fooled mu DH!!

Linda Sue' site is awesome

Gayle's Hot Chocolate

Recipe By: Gayle
Categories: Beverages

2/3 cup heavy cream
2/3 cup water
2 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa
2 tablespoons Atkins sugar free chocolate syrup
1 teaspoon artificial sweetener -- or to taste

Stir together the heavy cream and water in small saucepan. Heat over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until warm. Add unsweetened cocoa and s.f. chocolate syrup (the cocoa blends better if the cream is warm). Continue stirring and heating until hot. DO NOT BOIL. Pour into large mug and add artificial sweetener, if desired. Enjoy! For a FRENCH VANILLA HOT CHOCOLATE, add 1 teaspoon Carbolite French Vanilla Cappuccino to the cream when adding the cocoa. I think this is richer tasting than the sugar free hot chocolate on the market and with fewer carbs.

if you put the cauliflower in a blender and add cream cheese and cour cream etc to it it doesnt taste like cauliflower. i mash mine by hand so its chunky but i like cauliflower so...

add bacon bits, chives, cheddar, butter, sour cream, and cream cheese. blend until pureed, and if its not creamy enough add more sour cream.

I finally found my camera cord. Just be warn. Sometimes I eat weird combinations. LOL. I also like to layer and tower food.


Fried eggs w/sliced banana peppers and mustard



Sauteed spinach w/spicy shrimp, avocado and lime




Fried eggplant (eggplant, egg, parm, ground pork rinds, herbs/seasonings - fried in peanut oil)


Last nights dinner.
Salad w/ranch....garlicky shrimp...layered fried eggplant (w/marinara and mozzarella)


I normally eat this w/chicken but for some reason I've been craving seafood lately.

Sorry, was too lazy to resize. :blush:
I might come back and edit once I size them down.

I had such a sweet tooth last night I decided to try a Pancake Recipe I saw on Linda's Low Carb the resulting pancakes were delicious they have a bit more of a tang than the usual but I just pretended they were buttermilk. I ate a few for a snack last night and the rest for breakfast they still were good this morning. I used some Smuckers SF syrup with them. I took these pics with a cell phone so you have to excuse the quality.

I love this thread! NurseMonkee I love your food presentation. So gourmet! This week I definitely wanna try some pancakes and protein powder donuts. Here is a dish that I made this week...Oven Fried Shrimp (parmesan and pork rind crust) and Stir Fried Brocolli, Mushroom and Onions.

Oh GAWD! Everything looks sooo delicious, I see some new favorites! I just made Linda's Quesadilla Quiche for dinner. This is the second time this week i've made this. It's induction friendly and I can't even BEGIN to tell you how incredibly delicious it is!

Recipe:

Linda's Low Carb Menus & Recipes

I leave out the green onions. And my oven is special so I have to bake at 375 for 45 minutes.



I add a dollop of sour cream too.. YUM! (2 Carbs per dollop.. use with caution)





I'd like to have for breakfast in the morning, anyone know how to keep a quiche? Do I just stick it in the fridge? I like it warm and i've never had any luck reheating eggs, they're always gross to me out of the microwave LOL

I have no problem reheating eggs in the microwave but I know everybody doesn't care for it. Quiches have been known to be eaten cold. Try that with some salsa maybe too Yumm!

PS. I'm printing out that recipe and making that for breakfast!!

Thanks for the tip! I was gonna try some salsa too but didn't want to overdo it on the tomatoes. A little bit of salsa does sound really good though. I'll try it cold in the morning and see how it does. It's so good though I don't think it will matter LOL

What drew me to this recipe is how little prep time there is which is always a plus in my book. Very quick and easy. You'll love it!
