Grammy on post #61 is my pork bone broth. I drink it everyday sometimes twice a day.
Chicken and beef broth , you might make a little different. Bone broth will help heal your gut flora. If you need a recipe for either or both just let me know.Always cook for 12 to 24 hours ( in my crockpot) so that you get the richness of your bones.

Boullion cubes have a major amount of salt that I don't like. I control everything when I make my own. It's helping alot.

Do you know how to make pizza crust & taco shells using zucchini or cauliflower with no cheese? If you want a recipe let me know.

I would love the recipe for the chicken or beef broth. Thank you!

Will your husband eat the pizza crust or taco shells?

I'd love to have both of those recipes Esther! I use raw red cabbage leaves for my taco shells and I love them. But, I'm always looking for something better or different to try. My dh uses the extra thin corn tortillas for his tacos since they only have 7 carbs.

I've made it twice in the past month. :-) I love it! I made your chocolate mayo cake again! It's so wonderful! We need some new recipes! I tried a pumpkin muffin with a topping off of Healthy Indulgences and it was very good.

This is a recipe from SJanette.I changed some things for us.

Corndogs

3/4 cup almond flour or sunflower flour
1 tsp baking powder
2 eggs
2 T. corn resistant starch
2 T. ground up baby corn
1/8th tsp salt
3 nitrate free hotdogs, cut in thirds
coconut oil spray

**Ketchup and mustard for dipping

These are awesome. I did not fry them I baked them in my cake pop maker.Mix everything together, then put your hotdog in bowl. Use a tablespon to scoop them into the cake pop maker. Bake for about 4 or 5 mins until golden brown.

Ewww.. Esther! The corn dogs look vunderfult! :-) I am going to start my hunt for a pop maker hopefully this week.

I'd like to make the sauce too! You really should start your own blog. :=)

Thank you for ALL your help! I'm so thankful to have someone else on this journey that understands food intolerances!

People may think I'm crazy but it works. I think Jen Eloff adds milk powder to hers I can't "vanilla white chocolate chips "So this is for the allergic people.This makes a small amount , you can double, triple the recipe.

Vanilla chocolate chips

2 Tablespoons cocoa butter melted
1 T. sweetner of choice ( I used erythritol )
1/2 tsp. vanilla

1 dinner plate


mix this all together until well combined. Pour on to the dinner plate, when it hardens cut into chips. I use them in recipes , candies, cookies ,muffins etc.

Hope you like them.

Paleo Chocolate Pistachio Biscotti

I found this recipe at Paleospirit. I love it! I added some sunflower seeds to my batch.

1 c. almond/or sunflower seed flour
1/4 c. coconut flour
1/4 c. unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 t. baking soda
1/4 t. salt
1/2 c. pure maple syrup (I used 1/2 c. SF honey with xylitol from Netrition)
1/2 c. unsalted pistachios
1/2 c. dark chocolate chips (I didn't have these so I used Esther's Chocolate candy and broke it up)

Preheat oven to 350
Add almond flour, coconut flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt to food processor and pulse until combined.
Add the maple syrup and pulse until you get a dough. (Allow a little time for the coconut flour to absorb the moisture.)
Remove the dough from the food processor and work in the pistachios and chocolate chips with a spoon. (You could do this with your hands but the dough will be very sticky.)
Form the dough into one log on a baking sheet lined with either parchment paper or a Silpat (silicon pad).
Bake 15 minutes at 350 degrees. Cut log into 1/2 inch slices on diagonal.
Bake 15 minutes more. Don't bake any longer.
Makes 10-12 biscotti.

***
Pumpkin Pie with Chocolate Pie Crust

Today I used the recipe to make a pie crust. I used all the dry ingredients but instead of adding the SF honey I added 1/2 c. Erythritol and 1/8 tsp. stevia plus I added 2 egg whites to hold it together. I tasted to make sure it was sweet enough. Patted it in a pie pan and baked at 350 for 12 minutes. I poured in a LC pumpkin pie mixture and baked. It was very good!

Coconut Milk Chocolate Ice Cream or Pudding

(I forgot to write down where I found this recipe so if it's yours please contact me and I'll give you credit).

1 can full fat coconut milk (I had 1/2 can of coconut cream and filled the rest of the can with coconut milk)
4 tbsp. cocoa
4 TB. Truvia (I used 4 TB. Erythritol and 1/8 tsp. Kal Stevia. Taste)
4 egg yolks (I used 4 egg whites)
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 envelope of Gelatin (I used the entire package)
1 tsp. arrrowroot powder (Omitted)
1/4 c. nuts (Omitted)

The instruction said to heat over low flame and then add the ingredients to 175 degrees. I mixed it and added straight to my small ice cream maker that makes small portions of ice cream. It's the kind that you put the tub in the freezer.

This was the best low carb coconut milk ice cream I've eaten so far! I will take it to eat for Easter.

Your ice cream recipe sounds good, Grammy G. Does it taste like coconut a lot?

They both sound wonderful Grammy. When I use chocolate with coconut I usally just taste the chocolate.

I made 3 mini pies today. I will put up the recipe monday. 2 cherry mousse ( you can use any berry) and a lemon meringue. These are 4" pies.

Grammy asked so sweetly so here is the pie crust recipe.

Almond flour pie crust

2 cups blanched almond flour ( or pecan, sunflower, macadamia nut flour)
1/3 c. coconut oil ( room temperture )
2 T. ghee
4 or 5 T. ice water

In a large bowl put the almond flour & coconut oil in, using your fingers or pastry cutter cut the flour & oil together until little pebbles.Now pour your ice water in 1 Tablespoon at a time mixing until it forms a ball.Roll the pie crust out between 2 sheets of parchment paper, then take the top one off put pie plate agaisnt the dough side and peel the other parchment paper off.Then you can fill with what you want to put in there. Bake at 350 for 40 to 60 minutes depending on what kind you make.

The 4" minis I did I baked them 8 to 12 mins,depending on oven.Then I made fillings.

Now you can use it for a large pie crust or 4" small ones. I pulled out enough dough to make 3 of these mini pie crusts. Then I froze the rest.
I'm the only one who eats like this.I made 3 different fillings.

Fillings

Lemon curd

1 whole egg
1 egg yolk
1 egg white & 2 tsp. erythritol ( put in small bowl set aside)
3 T. lemon juice
1 1/2 tsp. erythritol

In a small pan add whole egg & egg yolk , lemon juice, erythritol. Mix everything together well over med. heat with a whisk. It will thicken as you stir. When it has thicken pour into your pie crust and set aside.


Now the egg white and erythritol combined well. Using a mixer whip to nice peaks. Spoon onto lemon pie. Bake under broil for a few minutes until brown.



Coconut cherry cream mousse

1/2 cup coconut cream
10 frozen black bing cherries or 10 fresh strawberries
6 drops of liquid sucralose

Whip coconut cream & sweetner. It doesn't take too long , fold berries into whipped cream.


I used homemade s/f blueberry jam for the third one. No pic I ate that one.

I think I'm going to try to make that strawberry meringue pie.I make 2 different kinds od mayo.


Mayo
2 egg yolks
3 tsp. lemon or lime juice
1/4 olive oil
2/4 coconut oil ( warmed )
1/4 tsp. salt

Put egg yolks, lemon juice,salt in blender. Blend well, slowly add oils until you get mayo.


You can add variations at this time. Chipolte. Or garlic, or red pepper in small amounts.



Baconaise

1 whole egg
1 egg yolk
1 cup bacon grease ( melted )
1 tsp. lemon juice

In blender add eggs, lemon juice , mix well add bacon grease until thick.

These are both awesome. And I love to make variations.

Hi Esther,
When I said Strawberry meringue I meant YOURS! LOL!!! You had said you were making cherries/or strawberries in a meringue? Or did I misunderstand?

I do have a 4 berry SF pie recipe. :-) Oh and I made your bacon mayo! It was so yummy!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Loved it! Thank you, thank you. Soybean oil is something I can't have for the next 3-6 months so this mayo will be great since store bought mayo has soybean oil.

Four Berry Low Carb Pie

*I used the Low Carb Pie Crust above.
4 cups of berries (I used what I had on hand which was a mixture of strawberries, blueberries, blackberries and raspberries)
2 tsp. Konjac Glucomannan Powder 500g bag
1 cup Now Foods Erythritol Natural Sweetener
1 Cup Swerve Sweetener, Granular
1/4 tsp. KAL - Pure Stevia Extract Powder, 3 oz powder

Taste the mixture to see if it's sweet enough. Adjust sweetness accordingly.
Mix fruit with other ingredients and put in dough lined pie crust and line with another pie crust. Make slits in top pie crust. Bake 350 for an hour. Check at 45 minutes and keep checking until top of pie crust is brown. You should be able to see that the juices are bubbling and thickening through the slits in the pie crust.
