The easiest biscuit recipe I've come up with is IMO better than the one on the box....and definitely much easier. I make a batch of these 2-3 times a week and absolutely love them.

2 cups CQ
1/2 stick butter
2/3 cup buttermilk

I dice the butter up in the CQ using a pastry blender, stir in the buttermilk and mix well. Spoonful into my hand and shaped into a ball. This makes up about 6-7 good sized biscuits. Bake at 450 for about 13-14 minutes. We love them and this is so little work I don't mind making them at all.

I have to admit I could taste a little CQ in the cheddar biscuits (never tried the regular ones) but I have used it for the Pumpkin dump cake and loved it as well as for the pancakes- the best I have ever had!

Linda Sue- I used the 2% Carb Countdown too, and mine thickened fine. Maybe I just got lucky! I did have to add about a tablespoon of butter to the sausage fat though, as I didn't have enough to make a good roux otherwise.

I never get the CQ taste in the Cheddar bisquits, could be cause I like Garlic and add quite a bit.
I agree you really need to overcompensate w/seasonings to cover up the CQ taste sometimes.
But still too good to give up!

Really looking foreward to making the Onion Bread this weekend!

CQ vs Dreamfields

I find CQ more of a godsend than Dreamfield's because I always see a noticeable weight gain after eating 2-2.5 oz (dry weight) of Dreamfields. Could be that it's the "carb effect" of a temporary water weight gain, but I don't like it. Thankfully, CQ doesn't seem to affect me that way and I haven't noticed any temporary gain after using it.

On the Pumpkin bars do you think could sub the Davinci's Kahlua for some other flavor ?
What would you use, I don't have many, carmel, vanilla, white chocolate and eng toffee? I'm thinking maybe vanilla??

Oh absolutely!!! I just added the Kahlua because it gave a nice flavor with the pumkin but any of the ones you have would work!

Chocolate, carmel, whatever!!! Have fun with it!!

Oh they were so rich that I thought they were fabulous!!! You can always add a touch of sweetener to the frosting if you think you need to add any.........but they were just right for me!

Cut into 18 bars they are roughly about 2.5 carbs each bar.

Waffles

I just received my first box of Carbquick. I used it to make my favorite thing in the whole world - waffles -THEY WERE AWESOME(with a slight dry after taste) - I added a little extra hood low carb milk to the batter to water it down a bit.
They make a low carb syrup called Joesphs that tastes exactly like regular syrup - I cut this walden farms and its tastes fine.
I made a double batch and froze the waffle individual in the freezer - this morning I took one out heated up in the toaster oven and it was even better than before.
I can't wait to try something else.

Then I added more CQ to the same pan and whisked like crazy!! Seems like I had to whisk for quite a while..... Anyway, I used beef broth along with a little carb countdown milk (the skim cuz I don't like the 2% or whole) and it was really good. I usually get so busy with the steaks and gravy I forget to make the biscuits tho!

I also wanted to thank you for all the recipes you have online! I know that takes time and I just appreciate it so much. Especially right now as I fell off the low-carb wagon (maybe I was pushed???) and trying to pull myself back on.

New recipes: choco chip muffins and sausage balls

Made the muffins yesterday based on a "regular" recipe. Turned out really good.

LC Chocolate Chip Muffins

1 egg
1/2 cup cream
1/4 cup water (maybe a bit more next time)
1/4 cup salad oil
1 1/2 cups Carbquik
1/2 cup splenda or suger substitute
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp vanilla (I used Creme Bouquet--flavor like bakery cakes)
1 cup (more or less) of SF chocolate chips (the CarbSense Mini Carb bag--from Netrition--was a little over 1 cup, but I only used 1 cup)

Heat oven to 400. Grease 12 muffin cups. Beat egg, stir in cream, water and oil. Mix in remaining ingredients except chips. Fold in chips.

Fill muffin cups 2/3 full. Bake 15 to 20 min or until golden brown.

I haven't done the real math on these, but just based on general knowledge of the ingredients, I would say these come in at or under 4 carbs each.

I loved the old bisquick recipe for sausage balls (1 lb sausage, 2 cups cheese and 2 cups bisquick). Have seen several posts here that this didn't turn out very well when subbing in carbquik. I've made significant mods and have come up with a sausage ball even my non-lc DH loves. Inspiration for some of the changes came from several posters on this thread <<tipping hat>>. Here you go:

LC Sausage Balls

2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup shredded parmesan
1/4 cup cream
1 egg
1/2 cup Carbquik
pinch of garlic powder or to taste
1/4 to 1/2 tsp italian seasoning

Mix until well blended.

Add in 1 lb of uncooked pork sausage. Mix until well blended.

Heat oven to 350. Roll into balls or use cookie dough scoop. This easily makes 36 ping pong size balls. Bake for about 25 minutes or until bottoms are nicely browned. My estimate for carb count is about 1/2 per ball. Good warm (defrost in microwave) or cold, as a snack, breakfast or main course with salad.

The recipe makes 6-7 biscuits....but I'm sorry, I don't know the carb count. I can tell you on the days I eat one with butter and s/f honey, jelly or syrup I've never gained....for what thats worth. Maybe one of the ladies with Mastercook can tell us the carb count.

I substituted carbquick for the almond flour and decreased the amount of baking powder to just a pinch - in the 3-minute chocolate cake. OMG It was so good and easy. It tasted just like a chocolate muffin from cosco. (need to let it cool before you eat it - texture changes alot) Also microwaved 1-min 20-sec.

I told my sister about it - she isn't doing low carb but her kids don't need any sugar - she made it with regular bisquick and splenda - the kids don't even know its a sugarless treat and they had alot of fun making it themselves.

I'm thrilled with the CQ pizza on the back of the box, so much so that I had to post this! There had been a thread a week ago about how it wasn't particularly good; however, my children, DH and I gobbled it up! I made only the dough part and pre-baked that and let it cool (as someone had suggested on another post) and topped it with small amount of pizza sauce, mozzerella cheese and a lot of pepperoni and baked it again until cheese melted. This I will add to the weeknight dinner repetoire in my house, which was getting a little tired....!
