Hi Vanessa,

Was looking thru this thread and your meatballs caught my eye and I have some ground beef to use and I'm just starting LC and want to do things right. Well then I noticed you have a blog. It is wonderful. So many great recipes and articles. Thank you so much. This should help as I love to cook.

I love you for saying so. Thank you. I have a hard time choosing, too. My menus tend to be less sexy than the pictures I share. I love a nice rubbed country beef rib, salmon, and meatballs a lot of the time... I only make desserts because friends ask for them most of the time. I hope you plan to share your pictures, too!

Ha! Ha! Ha! We had uncured grass fed hot dogs for dinner alongside some broccoli and kale chips. SEXY, I say, SEXY!

YES! You and I are borg. Tonight we had burgers and a salad. Definitely not the kind of bring-on-the-hotness cutting edge sexy for images. I have chicken and salmon planned for the rest of the week. Nothing phenomenal, but it's still good stuff.

After viewing the first few pages in this thread, I decided to make this for my first return to LC meal. It is delish and thank you for the ideas!!

Oh, ground beef, frozen green beans, onion, spices...fried all together. Then added some shredded cheese and bit of mayo and dijon mustard to my bowl.

This was a combination or tweak of three great recipes -- the peanut butter fudge, chocolate bark, and toasted coconut "crispies." My kids won't leave these in the house more than a couple days.

Kent, the bars look yummy. What size pan did you use for them? I can't tell by the video if that's a 9x13" pan or a smaller size.

If you google "Your Lighter Side Peppermint Cream Puff Minis" you'll go right to the recipe. I used to post recipes here, but I've had so many taken without attribution that I can't do it anymore.

The pan was a size smaller. It's 8x11 cake pan. You could also use a 7x7 square to have it a little thicker than mine.

I was also asked for a link to the recipe. Here is the recipe video:

Thanks Diana. I don't use those Worcester "Victorian Violets" plates very often. But for photographing some foods, they're just perfect, as with all things blueberry.

Low carb, sugar free, gluten free thin mints. They're only 1.6 carbs a piece. It really goes to show you can adapt recipes for your needs.

Yeah! I figured out how to resize them. *facepalm*

Nigel, are you still juicing? We do it intermittently. Once a day or so.

I usually have a v-8+ every morning, but that's about all the juicing I have done this year, so far. Occasionally, I have 2 glasses, but most days, only one.
