I just found this thread too! Wow - what great ideas! I can't wait to try a few of them!

Here's one of my favorite staples, that I make over the weekend, then snack on all week long. It's from Dana Carpender's 500 Low Carb Recipes book:

Joe (that's it - just "Joe")

Hamburger
chopped onions
eggs
Fresh spinach

Brown hamburger with onions and seasonings. Drain (or not). Scramble in some eggs. When the eggs are done, throw in a whole bag of fresh baby spinach. Cook and stir until the spinach is wilted.

That's it! Very easy, and yummy! Sometimes I'll sprinkle some parmesan and/or worchesteshire sauce on it before eating.

Mmmm... Rhonda, "Joe" sounds delish! I bet it'd be good with some salsa (I'm Texan... I swear I put salsa on just about everything! )

1 Tbsp Chili sauce
My cocktail sauce:

Equal parts low carb ketchup and horseradish mustard (French's has no sugar).

It is awesome! But I have to get some of that chili sauce...

Chocolate Orange

1 tsp cocoa powder
1 box SF orange jello (made according to directions, less 1/4 c.)
1/4 c. vanilla davincis

Pour packet of jello into a bowl, add cocoa, then 1 3/4 c. hot water and finally davincis. Whisk together until jello is dissolved.

Note- The cocoa doesn't really get dissolved and settles at the bottom, but it ends up tasty... trust me. DS LOVED it and practically ate the whole thing for me. BRAT! Also, you could put this in a jello mold, double or triple it and have a real decadent looking dessert.
I made this today, and it's amazing!!! I didn't have orange jello though, so I substituted SF Black Cherry jello that I had in the pantry. I also substituted Almond Davinci instead of Vanilla. So, I ended up with Black Cherry Almond Chocolate dessert.

It was so good!!! The chocolate settles at the bottom and is kinda like a layer of fudge! YUMMM

I thought i'd contribute. I've got two that are like THE EASIEST:

1 cup of chopped onion (this lazy cook buys it pre-chopped)
Sautee in butter until soft
Add 2 cans of Tuna and saute until tuna gets all crispy nummy.

1 cup of chopped onion (this lazy cook buys it pre-chopped)
Sautee in butter until soft
Add 1 can canned Roast Beef from Trader Joe's (I shred it with my fingers just break it up a little) sautee until roast beef gets all crispy nummy.

You may want to add some butter after you've added the protein of your choice.

This is great how it is but can be dressed up by adding
sliced cherry tomatoes
and/or mayo

Swiss Broccoli:

Mix it all together, dump into an 8x8 pan and bake at 350 for about half an hour.

I don't even like Swiss cheese but I love this.
Add egg whites to this and it 'puffs' up nicely.

Joe (that's it - just "Joe")

Hamburger
chopped onions
eggs
Fresh spinach

Brown hamburger with onions and seasonings. Drain (or not). Scramble in some eggs. When the eggs are done, throw in a whole bag of fresh baby spinach. Cook and stir until the spinach is wilted.

That's it! Very easy, and yummy! Sometimes I'll sprinkle some parmesan and/or worchesteshire sauce on it before eating.
This is actually a rather famous dish called Joe's Special...originated out of San Francisco diners? Something like that. A local restaurant had this on the menu for a while, really really nice! to be able to order up while all around you everyone is stuffing english muffins!

Thrilled to find this recipe section!

I can't believe I didn't see this before. I so needed the simplicity of such recipes. I printed out a few this morning and am making "Diet Rite Cola Chicken" right now! So fast and easy. Exactly what I need as today I am back to Induction. Thank you all so much for doing this.

This makes a really good bbq chicken. I shread it up and just keep some in the fridge.

A big "Thank You" to you, Brittany, for sharing this recipe with us. I found it this a.m. and had it for supper. It is delicious and so easy and I am very grateful as this is my first serious day of Induction - And I do mean serious this time! I froze what was leftover for an emergency meal when my husband will be eating something that I can't have.

xxoo

Sorry if this has already been posted. I didn't look through all 14 pages:

BUFFALO WINGS:
Wings
Frank's Hot Sauce
Melted Butter

Bake wings for an hour at 350, turning over halfway through. Mix equal parts Frank's and butter, and toss wings in the sauce. Add more Franks' if you like them hot.

BLUE CHEESE DIP:

1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup blue cheese crumbles.

Whir it with a hand blender.

Use it for crudités, or to dip the above posted buffalo wings.

Some of you post "subscribe" or "marking my spot". At the risk of sounding silly, what do you mean and how do I do this too?:blush:
