Ladies from the Weight Loss Journal - Our Favorite Recipes
O.K. all you great ladies from the Weight Loss Journal forum. Let's get some great recipes together here.

I'm going to post what I'm making tonight. I got this from (guess who) LindaSue's website.

1 1/2 pounds ground beef
1/4 cup onion, minced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 egg, beaten
2 ounces parmesan cheese, grated, 1/2 cup (I used the kind in a can)
Cooking oil
8 ounces tomato sauce
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
6 1/2-ounce slices mozzarella cheese

Mix the ground beef, onion, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper well. Shape into 6 patties. Dip patties in egg then coat them with parmesan cheese. Heat a little oil in a large non-stick skillet. Brown patties over medium heat, turning once to brown the other side. Drain fat. Combine tomato sauce and Italian seasoning; pour over patties. Cover skillet and simmer on low heat 15 minutes, until meat is cooked through. Top each with a slice of mozzarella; cover pan and heat until cheese is melted.

Makes 6 servings

My favorite pizza: Linda's Deep Dish Pizza

Wonderful low carb deep dish pizza!

4 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 eggs
1/4 cup parmesan cheese, 1 ounce (I used the kind in a can)
1/4 teaspoon oregano or Italian seasoning
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
8 ounces Italian cheese blend or mozzarella cheese, shredded
1/4 cup pizza sauce
4 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded
Assorted toppings: pepperoni, ham, sausage, 4 ounce can mushrooms, green peppers, bacon, ground beef, etc.
Dash of garlic pepper or garlic powder and some Italian seasoning for top of pizza

How To Prepare:
In a medium bowl, whisk cream cheese until smooth and creamy. Whisk in eggs until mixture is well-blended and smooth. Add the parmesan and seasonings, then stir in the 8 ounces of mozzarella until completely moistened. Spread cheese mixture evenly in a well-greased 9x13" glass baking dish or lightly greased and lined with parchment paper (see note below). Bake at 375º 20-25 minutes or until evenly browned, but not too dark. Let cool completely on a wire rack. When nearly cooled, take a metal spatula and carefully pry up the edges to loosen from pan. Ease the spatula under the whole crust to loosen. Keep crust in the pan. This makes it easier to remove the finished pizza later. Refrigerate, uncovered, until shortly before serving time.

Spread chilled crust with pizza sauce, then cheese and toppings of your choice. Lightly sprinkle with seasonings of your choice. Bake at 375º about 15-20 minutes or until toppings are bubbly. Let stand a few minutes before cutting.

Linda says,
I don't recommend making this in a metal baking pan as it will stick making the pizza very difficult to remove and the pan very hard to clean.

I think I may have discovered the secret to a crispy crust. I left the baked crust uncovered in the refrigerator for several hours. I think that allowed it to dry out a bit so that it became crisp during the second baking with the toppings. I was able to pick the pizza up in my hands.

NOTE: If you lightly grease the pan and line it with parchment paper, you'll have no trouble removing the pizza from the pan later. Greasing the pan makes the parchment stick to it so you can easily spread the crust batter.

I've been at work so I'm a little late getting here, but this is GREAT! I LOVE you girls! Here's my first recipe:

Macho Chili
(carb count does not include optional items or garnishes)

1 lb. stew meat
1-2 lbs. ground beef
2 t. salt

Toss beef with salt and pepper. Heat about 1 ½ teaspoons oil in a dutch oven over fairly high heat. Add one-third of the stew beef and sear on all sides, about 5 minutes. Remove from pot; reduce heat and brown ground beef. About halfway through the browning, add onions, celery and garlic and sauté until slightly translucent. Stir in chili powder, tomatoes, wine and garlic; bring to a simmer. Return beef and accumulated juices to pot. Cover and simmer at least a half hour, or until beef is very tender.

I love this recipe! Got to make this one!

Ricotta Pie

4 eggs
15oz container of ricotta
2 cups mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup (4 T) of grated Parmesan cheese
Small onion chopped and cooked in butter
6 slices of cooked bacon
2 T of dried parsley flakes
Salt and pepper (added to onions while cooking)

Spray an 8X8 glass pan with Pam.

Mix the eggs, mozzarella, Parmesan, parsley, and ricotta together. Cook the onions in butter w/ salt and pepper until translucent. Add to the egg mixture. Cook up 6 slices of bacon. Dry on paper towel and crumble. Add this to the egg mixture. Pour the mixture into the glass pan. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. The pie should be light brown and firm. Slice into 6 servings.
You can make this in a giant muffin tins. They refrigerate or freeze very well. You can play around with the base (eggs, ricotta, cheese) by adding different meats or veggies.

My counts on this:
4 eggs-2.4
6 servings-4.3 carbs per serving
8 servings=3.2 carbs per serving

4 T peanut butter (I like the crunchy)

Melt all ingredients together slowly until smooth. Spoon into muffin cups lined with paper or alum. cups (alum. work better). Put into the freezer for 1 hour.

Makes 12 cups with 2.2 carbs per cup.

I already posted this in my journal, but I'm adding it here so I nobody has to search through my journal for it. I think I will go through my journal and put all the recipes I've posted there in here!

Alfredo Sauce

1 pt. cream
½ c. butter
2 T. cream cheese
½ - ¾ c. parmesan cheese
1 t. garlic powder

Melt butter and cream cheese in a medium saucepan. Add cream and simmer until all is melted. Add parmesan cheese and garlic powder. Simmer 15-20 min on low. Season to taste with salt, pepper and/or nutmeg. Serve over pasta or spaghetti squash with shrimp, ham or chicken. Add steamed veggies to make a primavera. (16 cbs for entire recipe)

Here are some desserts!


2 egg whites
1/8 t. salt
1/3 c. Splenda
1/2 t. almond extract
1 c. unsweetened fine macaroon coconut (i use Bobs Red Mill)
1 drop red food coloring, if desired

Whip the egg whites until quite fluffy and slowly add all ingredients except coconut. Whip until fairly stiff. Fold in coconut and drop by teaspoons onto a parchment lined (I use a silpat) baking sheet. Bake at 325 for about 8 minutes (the smaller the cookie, the less time...it should hold together and be dry to the touch, but not be more than barely golden on the bottom.)

Creamy Cheesecake

16 oz. cream cheese, softened
2 eggs
1/2 c. Splenda OR Davinci Vanilla Syrup (I usually use half of each)
1-2 t. vanilla extract (if you are just using Splenda)

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Beat cream cheese until fluffy and add eggs, sweeteners and vanilla, if using. Beat until completely smooth and creamy. Pour into a glass pie dish sprayed with Pam. I tap the bottom of the dish on the counter quite a few times at this point to get out the air bubbles. Bake about 20-25 min, or until set (mine are usually puffy when I take it out and then flatten as they cool.) Chill before serving. I cut this into 12 servings. (The carb count depends on your cream cheese, and whether you use Splenda or the Davinci's. I usually get between 24 - 32, or 2 - 2.6 carbs per slice.)

If you are feeling daring , you can put a T. of SF cherry pie filling on top of either of these pies for an additional 1.5 carbs (I get the Walmart Great Value brand.)

Here's the no-bake one:

Cream Cheese Pie

1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese
1//3 c. Splenda
1 t. vanilla
1 pint heavy whipping cream, whipped

Blend together cheese and Splenda. Fold in whipped cream. Spread into nut or SF cookie crust. (I cut this one into 8 for about 3.75 carbs per slice for JUST the filling...the crust adds about 1 more carb per slice for 4.5-5 carbs total. The filling carb count depends on what brand of cream cheese you use, but you could definitely cut it into smaller slices if you want. If you want to skip the crust on this, you can serve it as a dessert in small dessert dishes, or layer it with the cherry pie filling, or fresh strawberries or raspberries for a parfait.)

I keep meaning to experiment and come up with a better nut crust, I just haven't taken the time yet, so I usually use this basic one:

Nut Crust

1 c. almonds or pecans, ground (I prefer pecans)
3 T. butter, melted
1 T. Splenda

Combine and press into the bottom and sides of a glass pie pan. Bake 10-15 minutes at 375 degrees. Let cool before filling.

Dark Chocolate Fudge Sauce

1 T. cocoa
1 T. butter
1/4 c. cream
2 T. Sweetener (I use a blend of 1-1/2 T. Splenda and 1/2 T. Erythritol)
1/2 t. vanilla

Melt butter and cocoa together over low heat. Add sweeteners and stir to dissolve. Add cream and boil one minute, stirring constantly. Add vanilla and stir well. May also make in the microwave. 2 servings. You can easily double this if you need more.

4 oz. shredded cheddar cheese

Hamburger Green Bean Casserole

1 lb. hamburger
1 small onion, chopped
mushrooms (optional, to taste)
4 oz. sour cream
4oz. cream cheese
dash of Worcestershire sauce
1-2 cans french style green beans, drained (Depends on how many carbs you want. Obviously 2 cans will be more carbs)
Cheddar cheese, to taste
French fried onions (optional)

350° Brown hamburger and stir in mushrooms and onions. Cook until vegetables are tender. Add cream cheese and stir until melted. Stir in sour cream. Add beans and combine. Pour into casserole dish and top with cheese and French fried onions. Bake until heated through and cheese is melted, about 30 min. (You can also serve this as a skillet dish...just simmer in a skillet until sauce is of a desired consistency, then sprinkle with the cheese and cover until the cheese is melted.)

I just thought of this, but you could probably turn this into a Philly Cheesesteak type dish by replacing the green beans with sliced green peppers!

Low Carb Mommy 06-13-2007 09:40 AM


3-4 cups diced cooked chicken
1 pound pork sausage
1 stalk celery, chopped fine

Pumpkin Bars

1/2 c. Carbquick
1/4 c. plain protein powder (or whole wheat flour when on maintenance)
1/4 c. almond flour
1 t. pumpkin pie spice
1/2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
1/2 c. vegetable oil
1 c. Splenda
2 eggs
1 c. pumpkin puree
1/4 c. nuts (optional)
1/8 c. raisins, chopped (maintenance)

350 deg. In a medium bowl stir together the first seven ingredients. Set aside. In a large bowl, beat the eggs, oil and Splenda together until smooth. Stir in the pumpkin, then the dry ingredients. Finally stir in the raisins and nuts, if using. Pour into a greased 9x13 pan (I usually use a pan just slightly smaller...8x12, I think) and spread evenly. Bake about 30 minutes, or until cake springs back when touched lightly. I cut this into about 16 bars.

(The carb count depends on which brand of protein powder you use, but mine I rounded up to 45 carbs for entire thing...it was really like 42 or 43, but I round up to account for any hidden carbs I might have missed.)

Sure can!

KrystaLyn 06-19-2007 10:52 AM

You can use a jarred sauce with this if you want. If you make the sauce recipe, make it before you start the chicken so it can simmer while you work on the chicken. For me, it's easiest to ask for chicken cutlets at the meat counter, but you can also make your own cutlets by butterflying chicken breasts, but cutting all the way through so that you have 2 seperate cutlets per breast.

Chicken Parmesan & Easy Marinara Sauce
8 chicken cutlets
1 1/2 c. parmesan cheese
1 t. Italian Seasoning
1 egg, beaten
2 c. marinara sauce (see below)
8 slices mozzarella cheese

Preheat broiler. Heat 2 T. olive oil in large fry pan. Combine parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning in a shallow dish. Dip cutlets in beaten egg then dredge in cheese mixture. Fry in oil 1-2 minutes each side, or until golden brown. Pour marinara in a large baking dish. Place fried cutlets on top of sauce. Top with mozzarella cheese. Place under broiler until sauce is heated and cheese is golden, about 5 min. Serve immediately.

Fast & Easy Marinara Sauce:

2 t. olive oil
¼ c. chopped onion
1 garlic clove, minced
1 (14 oz.) can diced tomatoes, undrained
1-2 spoonfuls tomato paste (depending on how thick you want it)
1 (8 oz.) can tomato sauce
1 t. Splenda
½ t. dried oregano leaves
¼ t. salt

Heat oil in a medium saucepan till hot. Add onion & garlic, sauté until crisp/tender. Add remaining, mix well. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to low simmer 15-20 min., stirring frequently. That’s it! (To make it even easier, you can use tomato sauce with the seasonings already in it. Can also brown a pound of ground beef or Italian sausage while sauce is cooking, then add it to the sauce to make a meat sauce.)
