I was likely using liquid sugar twin. I would suggest adding sweetener of your choice slowly and tasting. I think I now use liquid sucralose (Ex-Sweetz) and about 10-12 drops.

I just made Carolyn F's famous Raspberry Crumb Coffee cake that we all know and love so well. It was so pretty, I had to take a picture before it was all gone!

Mmmm. Lovely, Diana. Sure looks good, too! I have a Raspberry Cream Cheese Coffeecake very similar to Carolyn's on my site. Mine has a flax "crumb" topping also. But I haven't tried Carolyn's yet, since I'm trying to avoid desserts for awhile.

I just went to your site earlier today to get your recipe. It is quite similar, but has enough difference that I want to try yours, too.

Dumplings

For stewed chicken, soups or gnocchi. They're almost as good as the real deal! :

Biscuit made with Ouizoid's http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/lo...flour-mix.html. 1/4 cup of the mix with 1 tbs Half and Half, and enough water to make a soft, droppable dough. Microwave in a round bowl for 1 minute, 45 seconds, then cut horizontally and toast with a little butter. yum!

Dinner tonight, steak strips on a bed of mixed greens, tomatoes and feta. I stir fried the steak strips in some Italian dressing for flavor.
It's not really a recipe but it was delicious.

Low Carb Thank U Berry Munch Cranberry, Macadamia Nut, White Chocolate Chip Cookies. That's a mouthful! Say that ten times fast lol

I used homemade white chocolate chips, brown sugar using erythritol and molasses mixed together and used unsweetened dried cranberries that I plumped up by soaking in some Da Vinci syrup.

Just google the name and the recipe will come up. Jamie has an awesome blog, she's very funny and posts amazing recipes.

if you can't find them online, it's easy enough to make your own. Boil fresh cranberries with a little sweetener (I use Monin blackberry syrup) for a couple of minutes until they "pop"--you can hear them.

Immediately remove them with a slotted spoon to a parchment lined cookie tray, spread them out, and bake them at 250 degrees f for a couple of hours. Every half hour or so, check and remove any that are starting to get too dry. I like them a little soft and chewy like raisins. Store in a plastic bag or container in the refrigerator. They can be frozen as well, for long-term storage.

I make these every year when the cranberries go on sale after Christmas for 50 cents a bag.

I wanted to share a pic of the chili and corn bread that we had for supper tonight. It was so good!! My own chili recipe, I don't measure but I used ground beef, a can of crushed tomatoes and a can of chipotle tomatoes, beef broth, garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, chili powder, salt and pepper. The corn bread is The Chicken Ladies recipe that is on this forum. It's amazing!!!

Zuppa Soup

I know I have a potato in this (we use 1 small one) and the original recipe calls for 6. But this soup is delicious and my entire family loves it!

1 lb. bulk italian sausage cooked ( I like the spicy)
1 bunch kale
1 c. heavy whipping cream
8 c. water (add more for thinner broth)
3 strips bacon cooked and chopped finely
4 chicken bouillon cubes
2 tsp. crushed red peppers (more or less to fit your spice desire!)
1 small potato thinly sliced. ( I have heard some people use caulifower, I just can't put it in here, I've had enough of it!)

Cook on stove top until kale is tender ( about 45 minutes on medium), beware, red pepper flakes pack some spice, my hubby doesn't like so I add to my own.

This recipe was inspired by another lcf (Limetwist - thanks again). Could be described as an Asian version of taco salad. I think it is too good!!

ASIAN INSPIRED PORK SALAD

1 tbsp (15 mL) soy sauce
1 tbsp (15 mL) fish sauce or soy sauce
1 tbsp (15 mL) dry sherry
2 tsp (10 mL) sesame oil
1/4 tsp (1 mL) hot pepper sauce
1 cup (250 mL) finely chopped green onions
1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and minced (optional)
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tsp (10 mL) grated gingerroot
1/2 tsp (2 mL) white pepper or pepper and salt
1 lb (500 g) lean ground pork
1 celery stalk sliced

Directions:

Add all ingredients to pan at medium low heat and stir fry to cooked through.

DRESSING

3 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
1 tablespoon artificial sweetener equivalent
3 tablespoons soy sauce, pref. low-sodium
1 tablespoon ginger, fresh grated
1/2 teaspoon garlic, fresh minced
2 tablespoons sesame oil
1/2 cup extra light olive oil
1 tablespoon sesame seed, lightly toasted
1 tablespoon chopped (green onions)

Directions:

Add all ingredients to a jar and shake.

Assembly:

Chop 6 Romaine leaves. Top with meat, 1 sliced green onion, dressing and lightly toasted sesame seeds.

NOTE:
Dressing makes about 6 (3tbsp) servings. Meat mixture makes 3 servings. Lettuce is one serving.

PER SERVING: 531 CAL, 6 NET CARBS, 41G FAT, 32G PROTEIN

Man, that looked delish, Cathy! Wonder how I missed it when Limetwist posted it. Just printed it out to try for lunch tomorrow. I have some ground pork in the freezer. Thanks for you "twist" on this.
