15 oz can of pumpkin

ALMOND THINS
 
I gotta try these; everyone raves about them! :p

ALMOND THINS
3 ounces almond flour (1 cup)
2 teaspoons granular Splenda
1 egg white
1/4 teaspoon salt *
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon onion powder

Mix all ingredients well in a small bowl. Everything should be moist and the dough should hold together somewhat. Put the dough on a well-greased sheet of heavy-duty aluminum foil, about 15x18". It's helpful to crumble the dough mixture and spread the crumbs in a roughly rectangular shape on the foil. Cover the dough with a piece of wax paper that's been sprayed with non-stick spray. Roll out the dough to about 1/8" thick or slightly thinner. Try to get the dough to an even thickness. You can also carefully peel up the wax paper and reshape the dough to get it as close to rectangular as possible. Replace the wax paper and continue rolling until nice and even. Peel off the wax paper and use a pizza or ravioli cutter to score the dough into approximately 1-inch squares. I cut 8 strips one direction and 6 strips the other way after running the cutter down all four sides to even out the rectangle.

Lift the foil and set it on the oven rack and bake them at 325º for 10-15 minutes, or until golden brown. Check after 10 minutes and if crackers at outer edge are getting pretty brown, remove those and continue baking the rest until golden. I used a thin metal spatula to very gently pry the crackers from the foil. Break them apart on the score lines and let cool.

Makes about 48 crackers

Per batch: 515 Calories; 43g Fat; 22g Protein; 19g Carbohydrate; 10g Dietary Fiber; 9g Net Carbs
Per 8 crackers: 86 Calories; 7g Fat; 4g Protein; 3g Carbohydrate; 2g Dietary Fiber; 1g Net Carbs

* I used 1/2 teaspoon salt originally and thought they were a little too salty, but my husband didn't think so.

These little snacks are very much like real crackers. You'd never know they were made of ground almonds. They are sturdy enough for dipping too. I may try to come up with a sweet cinnamon version sometime.

CINNAMON THINS
3 ounces almond flour, 3/4 cup
4 teaspoons granular Splenda (try 8 teaspoons)
1 egg white
Pinch salt (try 1/8 teaspoon)
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon (try 1/2 teaspoon)
1/8 teaspoon vanilla

Topping:
1 teaspoon granular Splenda
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon

Make the same as for the Almond Thins, but sprinkle the topping over the dough before baking. Spread the topping evening over the dough with your hand.

Makes about 48-64 crackers

I'm not sure what to believe on yogurt carb wise (exception or not) so I just do the count for 1 cup yogurt same as 1 cup Hood's Carb Countdown Milk. So 1 cup = 3 carbs.

Hood Calorie Countdown Milk; great stuff if available in your market...

Crock Pot BBQ Pulled Pork
 
I always thought pulled pork was one of those intensive, time-consuming dishes that required patience and culinary know-how. I was kind of right. It requires time; this version requires 36-hours of time to be exact, but it's pretty darn fool proof and delicious!

I was browsing quite a few pulled pork recipes on the ole internet when I found that the most common ingredients were simple: onions, peppers, barbecue sauce (bottled or homemade) and well, pork.


Here's my version:

Crock Pot BBQ Pulled Pork

2 pork loins (or shoulder, or butt)
1 large onion, chopped
1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tomatoes, diced
Black Pepper
2 tablespoons dijon mustard
1 tablespoon Splenda brown sugar blend (or WheyLow Gold)
BBQ sauce, either homemade or storebought -- enough to cover the roast almost all the way.
(look for SF or Light as most Regular BBQ sauce is full of sugar so full of carbs!)

Stir all ingredients except roast into crock. Add roast, cover crock, set to LOW.

After a few hours turn the roast over.

The meat is done when it falls apart easily when poked with a fork; this took eight hours on low for my crock pot.

When meat is ready, shred it from the center of the crock outward with a fork. When meat is all shredded, stir it well into the sauce that remains in the crock and let sit for even longer until desired *consistency.

*The pork can be done and ready to serve in ten hours for sure, but those extra twenty-six on the warming setting made for some tasty meat.

RICH SOUR CREAM CHICKEN
 
mmmmmmmm sounds DEE-LISH! thanks 4 sharing; I'm adding to my e-recipe files! :p

I changed a few little things:
I used boneless chicken breasts that were defrosted;
I replaced the thyme with 1 tsp red pepper flakes;
I added 1/8 tsp black pepper and a sprinkle of parsley flakes;
Then I took the leftover sour cream mixture and mixed it in with 1/3 head (about 2 servings) raw cauliflower and put it in a separate covered casserole dish.

I cooked 4 chicken breasts in an uncovered casserole + the cauliflower in a covered casserole for 40 minutes on 375.
IT WAS FABULOUS. A little kick to it, but not too much.
The cauliflower had some sauce in the bottom of the casserole that I used to dip the chicken into.

Rich Sour Cream Chicken
8 chicken breast halves with skin and bones
1-1/2 c crushed pork rinds(about 20 rinds)
1-1/2 c sour cream
1-1/2 t salt
1 t thyme
1 t paprika
1 t garlic powder

Preheat oven to 350F.
Butter or oil an ovenproof baking dish(or broiler pan) large enough to hold the chicken.
Wash the chicken and pat dry with paper towels.
(Optional: for tastiest, juiciest chicken, wash the night before, and while still wet, sprinkle liberally with kosher salt, cover tightly, and refrigerate overnight; Rinse well and pat dry, then proceed with the recipe below, reducing the salt to 3/4 t in the sauce.)

Place the crushed pork rinds on a plate or a piece of wax paper.
In a wide, shallow bowl, mix together the sour cream, salt, thyme, paprika and garlic powder.
Dip the chicken into the sour cream mixture, then roll it in the crushed pork rinds.
Place the chicken pieces in the baking dish or pan.
Bake for 1-hour at 350F or until thoroughly cooked and tender.
