What is your favorite new LC recipe from the last year (or so)?

My favorite is my version of the chorizo chicken recipe presented in this thread: http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/sh...80&postcount=1

I make taco meat from chicken or beef + chorizo - for soft tacos once or twice a week.

Its so simple it almost fits the 3 ingredient recipe thread.

I just saute celery, green pepper and onions with adobo, pepper and Memaws chili powder. I process the chicken and chorizo in the food processor and fry with the vegetables. I add a little beer and salsa to the mix and cook that down – served with low carb soft tacos, cheese and sour cream

What have you discovered recently that has gone into regular rotation in your house?

Not a new recipe- although I look forward to hearing these- but Halo Top ice cream has been a very happy addition to our LC WOE. I also like SmartCakes for an afternoon snack. The new Konjac oat fiber noodles are a big improvement over the plain, IMO.

I do plenty of cooking but having a few things I don't have to make from scratch has been so helpful.

The following is my family's favorite new veggie side dish. It's especially lovely if you use rainbow- stemmed Swiss Chard:

Swiss Chard, Onion and Feta

Medium onion, coarsly chopped
One bunch Swiss chard
4 oz feta cheese

Preheat oven to 350F.
Separate chard stems from leaves and coarsely chop the stems
Coat the onion and stems in a little olive oil and bake on a large cookie sheet for 20 minutes or so until just starting to brown. Remove from oven.
Tear the chard leaves into bite sized pieces, lightly oil, and place atop cooked onion/stem mixture.
Crumble feta on top of leaves and put the whole tray back in the oven for another 20 min or so until feta starts to brown.

So easy and so delicious!
Leftovers are great in eggs the next morning, too.

Here's one more I forgot:

Joy Filled Eats-Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole (liked this one even better than the bacon ranch casserole). Use imported swiss and ham if you can. They have more flavor.

I have tried the crack slaw and love it but I rarely make it.
Bought too many bags pre-shredded cabbage that I never actually used

I do have almost all her cookbooks, but the chocolate pudding cake is on the Carbsmart website and the cookie bars are on the Hold the Toast website. You can google the titles of the recipes with her name, and they come right up.

Thanks! I did search for the cookies... wonder why I didn't find them.

A search without chocolate in it does NOT come up with those bars! As in real life, chocolate is vital! LOL.

Those bagel dogs are the bomb! I made them according to the recipe the first time. That dough behaves so much like pizza dough. Who knew? I thought the bagel dogs had too much dough and were too salty but I definitely saw the potential. The second time I used Johnsonville smoked sausage with cheese. They come in a package of 6 - much more flavor than weiners - and much closer to the high carb ones. I made a double recipe of dough for 12 sausages. I toasted the sesame seeds first and did not put the salt into the seed mixture. I divided the dough into 12 portions and patted it out a bit and then just squshed it around the sausage and rolled it between my palms to get it evenly distributed around the sausage. I got it as thin as I could making sure the sausage was covered. Some of the dough would smush out the ends as I was rolling it between my fingers so I would pull it off and put it aside to freeze for next time. After baking I froze the bagel dogs. I just now heated one in the microwave for 2 minutes and it's amazing. The seeds get nice and crisp so there's crunch to it. I'm really really pleased with these and encourage everyone to try them. I'm not sure the unsuspecting would ever know these weren't the real thing. Thanks for posting that it was one of your favorites and I now have a new website,Primitive Palate, bookmarked.

Jen, I just saw your post. I googled Chocolate Coconut Pecan Cookie Bars Dana Carpender and the first thing that came up was her Hold the Toast website. Try it again and let me know if you have luck. If not, I will post the recipe. Yes, chocolate is vital!

I just want to correct my earlier post about making bagel dogs. I gave the wrong sausage. The one I used is McCormick's Grill Mates Smoked Applewood and Cheddar. I realized my mistake when I bought some today to make more.

Lately my cooking has become boring so I need to search for some new recipes. The only new recipe I've tried in the last few months is the bread recipe posted by Tater Head. It is absolutely the best LC bread I've tasted.

Tried the bagel dogs based on SooBee's recommendation. They were great! Agree the topping was too salty.

Last night made Jen Eloff's Gouda chicken a la queen casserole. Nice recipe. Didn't need the cornstarch.
