I would love to hear of anyone who actually tried the Miracle Noodle also. Given the quantity requirement, I'm thinking they are actually ordered from overseas and imported.

Call me skeptic but I think if zero carb pasta was any good, a domestic option would be available.

Then again...I didn't think I would like the new Atkins bars but they are outrageous!

I made a really great shrimp dish once and put it atop the shirataki noodles, I got the fettucini size. In only my opinion, the noodles didn't have a 'taste' per se, they really do take on the flavor of whatever you are eating them with as long as they are rinsed properly. What I did not enjoy about them however was the texture. They are almost gelatenous (sp?). Hard to describe.

cleo, I only have the single egg rings and they work better for me because I like to kinda move them around, making sure the egg/pancake is not sticking to the ring. I dip it in vegetable oil just to coat the ring. Will try that spray bottle thingy soon.

I haven't posted in a while because I made that White Castle pie and it was SOOO good and was dinner for 3 days LOL Here with the stir fry



For breakfast this morning, I decided to put a teaspoon of heavy cream over the pancakes, maybe 1/4 teaspoon of Splenda and cinnamon on top. OMG! It's like dessert!

LOL to be fair, I microwaved the pancakes for less than a minute. I made a huge batch of it and put them in a storage bag and in the fridge so for breakfast I just grab a few and nuke it so it's ready

I just had a fried egg and it spread all over my pan. I was wishing I had an egg ring.
I'm going to order those single ones online.

In the past, my Mom used a cleaned out tin can as her egg ring. Heck, for all I know, that's still what she uses. LOL

Just checked and Stokes carries all different kinds of egg rings! Even different shapes! woop! I am headed down today to get some and try out these pancakes again.
How do you measure out the 3 oz of cream cheese?

I can see a tuna can working very well for this. A tongs would be used for the handle or a vice grip

You can also use a cookie cutter, depending on the size.
I have some that are for thicker items like biscuits. I think that would work for the pancakes. It could be smaller size pancakes! I can make a stack. Yummy. I love stackables.

I buy cream cheese in the small 8 oz block. On the wrapper it has measurement markings in 1 oz increments. If I happen to buy it in a small tub, i'll weigh a small light container and then weigh out 3 oz (+the weight of the container I am using) of cream cheese on my scale.

OOh! The cookie cutter idea would rock for the kids! Make them tree-shaped or ghost-shaped eggs and/or pancakes. I think I even have a large heart one, and a star along w/ the holiday ones. I never use them for cookies. LOL. How fun would that be!

Mock Scottsdale Potatoes

Just had a hankering for comfort food tonight, likely because Flo is here and she's really being a pain!

DSCN0980.JPG
3 bunches radishes, chopped to look like hash browns
1/2 red onion
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 8oz container sour cream
1 8oz package shredded Sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 stick butter, melted
Approximately a half a bag of pork rinds, crushed, but leaving some chunks
3 green onions, chopped

Fry radishes, onion, and garlic together in large skillet until cooked, but not mushy. Blend in cheese and sour cream. Put mixture into 8x8 square baking dish or similar. Pour melted butter over pork rinds, mix, and then place as a crust topping over radish mixture. Sprinkle chopped green onions on top.

Bake at 350 degrees until browned on top. Approximately 20-30 minutes.

This was changed from this Scottsdale Potatoes recipe that I learned from a friend. I fell in love with them when she made them.

WOE: Atkins Induction
Hello

First off, I must say that 89 pages take a really long time to read through, especially when you're copying down recipes and saving pics for reference

I forgot how I stumbled on here but I am very glad I did as I was two seconds from giving up on induction. Then again, I only ate deli meats, cheeses, veggies, and LOTS of tuna. Blegh It's easy to say this thread saved my butt big time!

So, to contribute, I'd like to add a couple pics of snacks I made from some ideas floating around here. I am far from a chef, so these definitely look nowhere near as pretty as the other ladies' creations! Gosh, I feel like I know all of you already from reading so much hehe!! I intend to make so many dishes as soon as I can get to the grocery store!

Nachos:


My first attempt at jalapeno poppers (with limited ingredients):

I'm very new here. But I must say you guys are very resourceful with food. I did Atkins about eight years ago and it worked great....I'm back on it again and so far lost 13 lbs since Feb 1.... Thanks for the help

I don't think they are. The only reason I don't make them more often is because they take about a day to totally dry out and crisp up unless you use the oven as a dehydrator (very low temp and oven door held ajar). You also need a couple of pans once bowls are inverted, so it takes up a wee bit of pan real estate while they crisp, but once they do, they're wonderful! I should make some more.

Sorry I've been MIA. Life, it's getting crazy!

so I'm getting a headstart on my morning since we are losing an hour tonight.
Starting the day out right with a can of Ro-tel, some homegrown spinach and protabella mushrooms in a quiche! (and cheese, of course!)
This looks so good it may not wait til morning!
