Be sure to add the 1/4 c. imitation honey that was inadvertently omitted from my Almond Butter Cookie recipe, discussed in the original thread: http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/lo...r-cookies.html

They won't cook up right without it!

I don't see where to add it in. Do we add it in with the oil and almond butter?

Hit reply. when you get to the page look up , just below the title line
see a smiley face , next to it is a paper clip. Click on the paper clip , then a management page will come up. Click on browse go to your file of pictures then click on the one you want and click open, you will have it then. You can do up to 3 pics. Now click on upload and this can take a couple of minutes. Now go to the paper clip again and click , you can do 1 at a time or insert all. When you insert them put above it CLICK TO ENLARGE .

nOW ON THE MANAGEMENT PAGE IT WILL SAY REMOVE CLICK THAT AND IT WILL TAKE THEM OFF WHEN YOU ARE DONE INSERTING THEM.Forgot I still had caps.

That should help everybody. If you do it from here , your pics stay here.
Thanks for these instructions, Esther. I got as far as uploading a picture, but lost track at the point where you said go to the paper clip again and click to insert. When I return to the paper clip, I see no images to insert. Could you explain a little further? Thanks.

When you upload don't take the manage attachment page off, leave it on at the bottom of your tool bar until you upload the pic. Now hit the paper
clip for your picture. Mine I just did was cordon blue and bake zucchini, when you click the paper clip there will be a little box that says your title of your pic now click on it where you are going to put the pic. When you have done all that, bring the manage attachment page back up
and click the remove button and then exit the manage page and you are done. You don't see the pic until you submit your reply. If you still don't understand just holler.
If you do them from here and click on the little picture it will come up large on another page.
I hope that helps more.

This is one of our favorite dinners. It's shown above served on miracle rice -- dh had it on regular rice...

Firecracker Prawns


Ingredients:
2 lb. large shrimp, peeled and deveined

1/2 cup each, chopped: red and yellow bell peppers, yellow onion or spring onions including both white and green parts

1 cup hot garlic chili sauce, the unsweetened kind
1/2 cup sugar free Ketchup
1/2 cup sugar replacer (I like to use 1/4 c Peggy's sf honey from butonni's website combined with 1/4 c erythritol or xylitol)
Juice of two limes
1/4 cup Chopped fresh cilantro


Directions:
Peel and devein shrimp.

In a bowl, whisk together the chili sauce, ketchup, sweetener, lime juice, and cilantro. Divide sauce into two equal amounts, about 1 cup each.

Marinate shrimp in 1 cup sauce while preparing the vegetables

Sauté the peppers and onions, stopping while still crisp

add the shrimp and marinade to the pan and cook until the shrimp are opaque and barely firm to the touch. Do not overcook!

Serve immediately with reserved 1 cup of sauce; sauce can be served heated or cold.

serves 6

This is my version of cream cheese muffins, using cottage cheese and Neufchatel cheese in place of all cream cheese. I topped these with a little blackberry sauce (blackberries simmered with sweetener, then blended with a stick blender). Carb counts are a little higher than the all cream cheese ones, but I also need to reduce calories to lose weight. I'll include carb counts later today.



Cream Cheese Muffins

1 8 oz pkg Neufchatel cheese
1 cup lowfat (1%) cottage cheese
1/2 cup sweetener or to taste (I use a combination of EZ Sweetz, liquid Splenda, powdered erythritol, and a small amount of xylitol – this gives a really nice balanced sweetness with no aftertaste)
2 eggs
1/2 tsp. vanilla
Optional:
Juice and grated rind of one large lemon

Soften cream cheese about 40 seconds in microwave. Place all other ingredients into the blender and blend at high speed until smooth. While the blender is running, drop the softened cream cheese in, a tablespoon at a time, to incorporate. Pour into 12 muffin pans sprayed with non stick cooking spray. Bake at 350 for 20 min.

Alternatively, cook at 350 for 18 minutes, then turn the heat off and leave the oven door closed for 10 minutes, then crack the over door for another 10 minutes. Then let them cool on the warm stovetop for an hour before putting them in the fridge.
924 calories for the whole batch, not counting sweeteners.
77 calories per serving.

Last night's Dinner: Barbecued Chicken, pureed cauliflower, chard and tomatoes from my garden



Barbecue Sauce ingredients
: Low carb ketchup, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, sweetener (xylitol, erythritol, Splenda, drop of blackstrap molasses), vinegar, onion and garlic flakes, salt, and Ms Dash. I don't measure, just add and taste, then microwave for 5 minutes to blend the flavors.

Fried Prawns



I coated these with cracker crumbs made with Joseph's Lavash bread--just toasted the bread with a little Pam spraye
d on both sides, then ran it through the food processor to make coarse crumbs. Seasoned the jumbo shrimp (16-21 per pound) with Old Bay, coated them with a little flour (I used Kevinpa's cake and cookie blend, but you could use anything, whey protein powder, oat flour, etc.). Then dip in beaten egg and rolled in cracker crumbs and fried. They were Amazing!

Joseph's Pita Pizza. I just toasted the pita (sprayed it on both sides with cooking spray first), then gave it a smear of marinara sauce, a sprinkle of Italian blend cheese, and covered it with thinly sliced veggies and baked it for about 10 minutes to get the cheese all melty and bubbly. Such a good pizza with an amazingly crispy crust!
