Come on over, Honeybuns! Plenty of LC food for everyone! I'm even going to make a dessert.

Kitty, a Low Carb restaurant would be terrific! But, I'd be sabotaged by the Wheat Lobbyists and PETA, and will probably end up framed for a crime I didn't commit and then I'd have to escape and become a vigilante. It would be a whole thing. I should probably design my hero costume now so it will be ready.

Amber, no wonder you never liked tuna! What, were you just eating it plain out of the can? The classic tuna sandwich recipe is mayo and chopped dill pickle-- at least that's how I grew up eating them... is there a different way I'm not aware of? I just got sick of it and started mixing up all kinds of weird stuff with it-- all of it tasted great! The Mediteranean Olive Salad was particularly tasty, and the sushi style is good... but nothing beats a big plop of mayo with some garlic, pepper and dillweed! Simple and fast! I have some artichoke tapenade in the cupboard I'm going to try next!

Just love this thread Angela. You have done amazing. Can't wait to read some of your journal. I think it's great how you make your own dressings. Can't wait to try some of these ideas. I will join in once I get a hang of this LC way of eating. I'm really excited about the process. Your photos will be a big help.

Thank you, Cookwithme! Commercial salad dressings give me the willies-- most of that stuff isn't even food! The homemade kind is so easy, and 10,000 times more tasty and healthy. You just need a bowl, a whisk and a microplaner for the small garlic clove. It is a few extra steps beyond unscrewing a cap, but it can be made ahead of time!

Getting the hang of LC eating can be fun once you realize how much variety there is! It is unfortunately easy to fall into a rut, though, which is why I photo and post my meals. It forces me to try new things!

Can you direct me to this blog so I can get this recipe? It looks delicious. Thanks. And I love all your pictures of your meals. It is 2:00 a.m. here and I've been looking at them and drooling as I go. Ha!

Hi Linda! This cake is really wonderful! LCF will not allow linking to Lauren's site, but if you copy and then paste " Healthy Indulgences Chocolate Cake With a Secret" into a search engine, it will pop right up for you.

Another awesome LC Sweets Blog is by another LCF member, Candice. I can probably link to hers as she doesn't sell any products: Candice's Low Carb Recipes

Her stuff looks just amazing! Talk about drooling!

Cheese Blintzes with Jam

Ingredients
2 recipes of Coconut Flour Crepes (see below):

1 cup cottage cheese
6 oz cream cheese, softened
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp lemon zest or juice
Liquid Splenda to taste (equivalent of 1/4 cup of sugar)
1 cup of Sugar Free jam or preserves, heated and maybe diluted with water to make a warm sauce

Preparation
In a blender, process cottage cheese until smooth. Add cream cheese, sweetener, lemon and vanilla and process until well blended.

Make 2 batches of crepes.

Spread about 1-2 rounded tablespoonful onto each crepe. Fold opposite sides of crepe over filling, forming a little bundle.

Arrange on plates, spoon sauce over top. Serve immediately.

For the Crepes:

Tropical Traditions - Recipe - Gluten-Free Coconut Flour Berry Crepes
Ingredients
Servings: 6
Preparation time: 12 minutes

2 eggs
2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
Stevia liquid drops, to taste (I use about 10 drops)
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract (can substitute almond extract)
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons coconut flour, sifted
small pinch of nutmeg
pinch of cinnamon
1/3 cup whole milk (can substitute regular coconut milk*)

Preparation
In a medium bowl with a wire whisk, beat together the eggs, oil, stevia, vanilla, and salt. Mix in sifted coconut flour, nutmeg and cinnamon; stir in milk.

Heat an 8-inch skillet over medium heat. When hot, melt a tiny pat of butter, coconut oil or palm shortening in the pan. Pour 1/8 cup of batter in the skillet and swirl around in pan until a thin layer of batter covers the bottom. The crepe should be about 6-inches in diameter.

Cook 1-2 minutes, or until batter is bubbly and cooked around the edges. Flip the crepe and cook the other side for 1-2 minutes more, or until done.

Makes about 6 crepes.

note: working with crepes is NOT easy! I had a pretty tough time of it. I'm sure it just takes practice.

Thanks, Whipper!

Thanks, Speck! I should try the coconut crepes, I have everything I need to make them! hmmmm...

Aw, Pure, welcome to the boards! You'll love it here; lots of knowledgeable and kind people. I've made so many friends, it really enriches my life and absolutely helps me focus and stay on my plan! I am not always motivating, though, and I find my freinds here really help get me going again. Feel free to pipe up in my journal any time! You are welcome there!

Candice's Chocolate Mousse Pie
(Made without almonds, used Ideal Sweetener, the filling was excellent, the crust was meh.)
The filling is highly recommended!

Candice’s Low Carb Chocolate Almond Mousse Pie « Candice's Low Carb Recipes



Low Carb Walnut Coffee Cake
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
adapted from:
Lauren's Healthy Indulgences Blog White Bean Cake
and Candice’s Low Carb Coffee Cake « Candice's Low Carb Recipes



Quote:
Glamazon's Low Carb Walnut Coffee Cake
8X8 pan, buttered
350 oven, 325 convection
Bake 25 minutes (or until knife comes out clean in center-- watch the time! This one needed 35-40 minutes, and the heat may have been too high. Needs more expirimenting to really get it right.)

Cake:
1-15 oz can white beans, rinsed (I used cannellini beans, white kidney beans)
5 large eggs plus 1 yolk
4 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 stick softened butter
1½ cups Ideal Brown Sweetener
6 packed tablespoons coconut flour
¼ teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder

Topping:
¼ cup Ideal Brown Sweetener
1½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
¼ cup unsalted butter, softened
¼ cup almond flour
1 teaspoon coconut flour
1 cup chopped walnuts

To make topping, blend all ingredients until doughy. Set aside.

In a blender, blend the rinsed beans, vanilla, and 3 eggs plus one yolk until completely smooth.

With your beater, cream the butter and sweetener, then add the remaining 2 eggs one at a time.

In a bowl, whisk coconut flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda

Add beans to creamed butter mixture, beat well, then add dry ingredients.

Batter is thick, spread into buttered pan, then pull apart pieces of topping dough and sprinkle and spread them around until the pieces are sprinkled evenly over all the batter, and even push them a little down into the batter.

Bake

Christmas Day Lunch:
Homemade chicken soup (chicken, green beans, carrot, parsnip, homemade stock)
leftover cracked crab salad w/ homemade louie dressing
Candice’s Low Carb Garlic Herb Drop Biscuits « Candice's Low Carb Recipes
Biscuit highly recommended! especially bread like the next day!
