I love salads, especially in the summertime. I've been cutting up the veggies and meats to keep on the ready and it makes it much easier to throw together a yummy lunch or light dinner. I cooked up some chicken and steak and then add whatever veggies I want in. I also made some hard boiled eggs because I'm liking them in my salads lately.

Here's a couple of salads I've eaten this past week.

Hash looks yummy, Gina.

I'm glad you posted something today because just this morning I was thinking "I wonder where Gina's been, I haven't seen any posts from her lately". You must have known I was thinking about you, were your ears burning?

Awwww thanks for thinking about me!

I guess I have been kind of MIA. I haven't really been doing much baking, and I do try to pop in once in a while to see what I've missed. It warms my heart to know that I am thought about when I'm away. It's a good thing too because we are having a snow storm here in Maine..brrrr

Have you made any Yummy's lately?

I'm in Maine too and we did get snow, my driveway had to be plowed. I'll need to do some shoveling tomorrow. I guess the temperature is going to drop too, cold week coming up!

Actually, yes, I cooked today. I made your cheesecake recipe but I used Carolyn's (alldayidreamaboutfood) brownie crust. It's still resting in the oven, I'll probably leave it overnight. I made a blueberry sauce to go on it because I bought a pint of blueberries yesterday on sale and didn't have any special plans for them. I also made some chicken enchiladas and a spinach, mushroom and bacon quiche.

Agh! my mom doesn't like italian dishes too much but I ALWAYS crave tomato and melted cheese ALWAYS. Now that I'm living at home it's hard to convince her to cook my recipes :P and there isn't enough kitchen for two cooks/leftovers from multiple dinnerplans! These look great, can you share basic recipes?

We had the spice rack issue too, but again now that I'm living at home, can't reorganize ma's pantry. So instead we decided to put labels on the tops! It worked fine for a fraction of the cost.

Here's some LC meatloaf I made with mistizoom's suggestion of 1 tbsp each of coconut flour and golden flax seed meal. 1 egg, 1 lb of combined ground pork and ground beef, plus onion and celery. (pardon the foil!)



And scones using Barbo's carbquik recipe plus 3/4 tsp xanthan gum:


With home made clotted cream (2 pints of non-ultra pasteurized heavy cream in crock pot on low for 8 hours yielded about 1.5 cups... a bit too brown I think from crock pot's temperature fluctuations, will use stainless pot in 180F oven next time.) And La Nouba Sugar Free strawberry fruit spread (never getting splenda-sweetened preserves again.. yuck)

Thank you! I just took better photos since I re-learned my camera, but haven't gotten them onto the PC yet. Also took some of a mexican quiche I made for breakfast today using my new toaster oven ^__^ I love it.

As far as the clotted cream goes, I was craving it so badly as I have once-removed relatives in Devon, and my last visit was back in 2009!

When I got the carbquik and found the lc foods preserves, etc, I thought how badly I wanted clotted cream and how obviously low-carb it was.

So I googled "how to make clotted cream" and was surprised how simple it was. Ours was thick like whipped butter or cream cheese, almost to brie consistency... but SO sweet and delicious.

Did you have to strain it or do anything else to it after cooking it in the crockpot? I'd love to make some but I'm not sure if anyone sells the non-ultra pasteurized cream around here anymore. I used to see it at Walmart and one other store but not anymore.

No straining or anything, it basically condenses slowly, the half on top gets sweet and thick, like a custard. Sort of steaming it. So only the stuff you scoop off the top is "Clotted" about half is "waste". (slightly thickened and sweetened liquid cream)

here is the original recipe, I would reccomend this method instead of crock pot. Your HC definitely needs to be non-ultra pasteurized. This recipe came from a UK site that even reccomended 40% fat whipping cream, but that is very hard to find here. Uses 2 pints of heavy whipping cream.:

"1. Pour the cream into a heavy-bottomed oven-safe pot. The cream should come up the side of the pot somewhere between one and three inches.
2. Cover the pot and put it in the oven on 180 F.
3.Leave the covered pot in the oven for at least 8 hours. My four cups took 12 hours (until my oven automatically turned off). You’ll know it’s done because there will be a thick yellowish skin above the cream, as shown above. That skin is the clotted cream.
Let the pot cool at room temperature, then put it in the refrigerator for another 8 hours.
Remove the clotted cream from the top of the pot. The cream that is underneath it can still be used for baking. "

mine browned and turned to the consistency of frozen yogurt! Like I said, it still tasted great compared to the ultra-pasteurized, flavorless stuff they sell for $3 an ounce in whole foods. it only yielded about 3/4 cup clotted cream though and about 10 oz of thickened, sweet liquid cream beneath. Luckily. heavy cream isn't the MOST expensive item.

Emita, in your other post you said you got 1 1/2 cups of clotted cream and in the one above you said you got only 3/4 cup. Which one is correct? I'm not sure if it would be worth it to only get 3/4 cup of it from four cups of cream.

The English are so lucky that they can get very high fat cream. Clotted cream is wonderful but even their extra thick double cream is so thick you can eat it with a spoon. We're lucky if we can find cream that isn't watered down with skim milk over here. It's very sad.

Laugh, It's hard to estimate cause it's as thick as ice cream and I keep eating little bits at a time. you certainly don't need much, and it can't be frozen as far as I know, so it's not entirely a bad thing that it doesn't make a lot.

The sweetened and slightly thickened cream left underneath is really good too and would be an excellent substitution for heavy cream in any recipe.

LOVELY! Like a low carb dr. praeggers!

I did this with zucchini and feta, plus a little coconut flour & almond meal. I really liked the combo of grated zucchini and feta, great flavor. I used a youtube video:

My first oopsies!! Thanks to my mom the pro egg white whipper for the advice and moral support.
Tried Peggy's sesame seed buns using the genaw.com recipe:
Quote:
4 eggs, separated
1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar
3 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 teaspoon granular Splenda *
1/4 cup golden flax meal
1 tablespoons unflavored, unsweetened whey protein powder
1 teaspoon sesame seeds

Put the egg whites and cream of tartar in a medium, non-plastic bowl. Beat with an electric mixer until the egg whites form stiff peaks.

In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth; add the Splenda and egg yolks and beat until smooth. Add the flax meal and whey protein; beat until blended. Gently dump the stiff egg whites into the bowl with the yolk mixture. Using a large rubber spatula, gently fold in the whites until no large spots of white remain. Be careful not to deflate the egg whites.

Spoon the batter into a well-greased muffin top pan with 6 holes. Sprinkle the tops with sesame seeds. Bake at 300º for 35 minutes until nice and brown. Remove from the pan and let cool on a wire rack. Store in the refrigerator.

Makes 6 buns
I think I pulled mine from the oven 2 minutes too early, a bit eggy inside still - HOWEVER I was able to split one laterally for a burger! I was shocked because of how thin they are. very sturdy. had the half there cause I couldn't resist trying them plain to analyze the flavor.

For some reason they ended up fishy tasting right out of the oven - I checked my flax meal but it tastes fine, just nutty as usual. Wonder if there was a weird chemical reaction... the next day had the second half of the picked-at bun with salami and provolone and oil/vinegar dressing - detected no fishiness but maybe it was the fixings?



better photos of my scones using barbo's carbquik recipe:
Quote:
Scones:
2 cups Carbquik
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 cup cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces *
2 ounces cold cream cheese, cut in small pieces
1/3 cup Carb Countdown milk or heavy cream
1 egg, beaten
3/4 cup granular Splenda or 20 drops Sweetzfree
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon heavy cream
Instructions:
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or nonstick baking liner. Mix topping ingredients in a small bowl; set aside. In medium bowl, whisk baking powder and cinnamon into CarbQuick. Cut in butter and cream cheese until it resembles small peas. Add nuts. In separate bowl, mix milk, egg, sweetener and vanilla. Add wet mixture to dry and stir just until dough comes together. Dough will be sticky.
Turn dough out onto surface lightly dusted with CarbQuick. Dust top of dough with bake mix and gently pat to 1-inch thick. Cut with 2-inch biscuit cutter and carefully place on baking sheet. Gently pat out scraps of dough and cut out to make remaining scones. Brush tops with the 1-tablespoon cream. Sprinkle with topping mixture, dividing all of it amongst the scones. Bake at 400º 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm, with butter, clotted cream or Mascarpone cheese.

An ugly looking paleo biscuit I made after making a celiac friend! LOL. it made one small drop biscuit and one larger (pictured) biscuit that I used a 3.5" ramekin for. Baked at 350 in toaster oven for 5 minutes (small) and 15 (large). This was before I had any other low carb baking ingredients ready.


I used (eyeballed, so, sorry if not exact!):
1 egg beaten
2 T heavy cream
3 T unblanched almond meal
2 T coconut flour
1 tsp baking powder
additional water if needed.

Stored the big one in the fridge and sliced it for biscuits and sausage gravy the next day ^_^ (pictured!)



a beautiful and delicious 100% carbquik version of buttoni's fluffy biscuits, minus the shredded cheese I didn't have:

1 oz. cream cheese, softened
a bit less than one egg
1 T heavy cream + more and water if needed
3/8 c. CarbQuick bake mix
½ tsp. each baking powder and baking soda
dash salt

DIRECTIONS: baked in 350 degree toaster oven til golden brown. DELICIOUS.

My sister sent me this wonderful chicken recipe but the fettuccini stole the show! It's gluten free and made from mung beans. Mung beans and water are the only ingredients and they're fantastic. I found them on netrition but they may be sold in other places. They remind me of the colored pasta. They have the same consistency as al dente pasta.

Here's the chicken recipe. I used homemade roasted red peppers and feta cheese instead of mozzarella because that's what I had.


Grilled Chicken with Spinach and Melted Mozzarella

Ingredients:
21 oz (3 large) chicken breasts sliced in half lengthwise to make 6 cutlets
salt and pepper to taste
1 tsp olive oil
3 cloves garlic, crushed
10 oz frozen spinach, drained
3 oz shredded part skim mozzarella
1/2 cup roasted red pepper, sliced in strips (packed in water)
olive oil spray

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400°. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Lightly spray a grill with oil (I used my George Forman) or grill outside on a gas grill. Cook chicken on the grill until no longer pink, careful not to overcook or you'll have dry chicken.

Meanwhile, heat a sauté pan on medium heat. Add oil and garlic, sauté a few seconds, add spinach, salt and pepper. Cook a few minutes until heated through.

When chicken is done, lay on a baking sheet lined with foil or parchment for easy clean-up. Divide spinach evenly between the 6 pieces and place on top. Top each with half oz mozzarella, then slices of roasted pepper and bake until melted, about 6-8 minutes.
