    Steel Your Heart Away Eggrolls

    The winner in Bob’s Red Mill Steel Cut Oats contest, landing me in Scotland with their marketing team representing BRM and the U.S., this original recipe of mine makes me proud. Like a child of mine. It also made it’s way into a Family Circle Cookbook-the recipe that just never stops giving! I think you’ll love the recipe because it’s not really hard to make, but according to the emcee in Carrbridge Scotland at The Golden Spurtle, it is “orgasmic.” Seriously-I have a video to prove it. My husband insists I need to set up a booth at the Texas State Fair and sell these. I’m content with just knowing…

    Moist Sour Cream Banana Bread

    I took my mom’s sour cream banana bread recipe and made just a couple of changes, but I am showing you the original recipe card in front of my memorable photo of her.  Instead of adding 1 c. white sugar, I added 1/2 c. white and 1/2 c. light brown sugar. I also added a little (1-2 t.) maple syrup to the batter-I love the addition of maple syrup to banana bread. Then I substituted unbleached flour for the all-purpose flour-it makes it just a little better texture-a little more dense. Print Mom's Moist Sour Cream Banana Bread Ingredients 1/2 cup butter, room temp 1/2 cup sugar 1/2 cup light…

    What an easy breakfast for the family. If you like the combined tastes of sweet & salty, this is for you.

    4 Ing. Low-Carb Cream Cheese Pancakes

    This was one of the first pancake recipes years ago that we used on the Atkins Diet. If you have a Nutri Bullet or blender use that, it mixes the batter. The batter will be thin, but the pancakes are still very delicious. Now there are many more recipes using all sorts of ingredients, but this one is worth the try. Print 4 Ing Low-Carb Cream Cheese Pancakes Ingredients 2 oz cream cheese room temp 2 eggs 1 teaspoon sugar substitute 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon Instructions Mix all in blender and pour onto a heated and buttered griddle or skillet. When the top starts to bubble up, flip over. Double, Triple…

    “Light as a Feather” Scones

    Made with low-fat vanilla yogurt, these flaky and light scones are perfect for snacking or for breakfast. Made from ingredients you probably have on hand, they are especially good with hot tea. “A scone is a British baked good, usually made of wheat, or oatmeal with baking powder as a leavening agent and baked on sheet pans. A scone is often lightly sweetened and occasionally glazed with egg wash. The scone is a basic component of the cream tea or Devonshire tea.”         Living many years in the Pacific Northwest, the scone influence is great, so they became one of our staples, and these are my favorite.…

    Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cereal

    There are really only 2 things I’ve missed while living the low carb lifestyle – toast and cereal. Those were my 2 mainstays of breakfast and even sometimes dinner. I’ve been able to substitute everything else, even ice cream, but toast and cereal aren’t easy to re-create. I buy Joseph’s Lavash bread-It’s Flax, Oat Bran & Whole Wheat Middle Eastern Bread, and the large sheets of it have only 6 net carbs. I use half, so 3 net carbs.  Here’s what I did-I sprayed a cookie sheet with buttery non-stick spray. Then I melted 2 Tablespoons butter. I sifted together 1 T. cinnamon and 2-3 T. Swerve granulated sugar substitute…

    Sausage Balls

    Back in the day (and I’m talking about the 70s), sausage balls were all the rage. We couldn’t believe that a pound of sausage, some baking mix and some cheese rolled into balls and baked would be as good as they were! As we discovered that carbs were evil, so many substitutes were made. Coconut flour, almond flour, Carbquik baking mix, you name it. The easy way to make these yummy 1-carb beauties is to see what you have on hand and go for it! My recipe has coconut flour, and it’s much more absorbent than almond flour. Usually 1/4 cup coconut flour is substituted for 1 cup almond flour…

    Breakfast Muffins

    These are a great on-the-go breakfast, or if you’re like me, something easy to shove in my mouth because I’ve been told I need to get my metabolism going first thing. And that coffee alone doesn’t count.  I have to confess I’m not a lover of the egg, but I can tolerate recipes with eggs and a bunch of other stuff together, like this one. I’ve used bacon, ham, sausage, spinach, onion, mushroom, on and on and on…practically anything I have in my fridge that is going to go bad in the next few days. My favorite (that shows in the photo well) is the feta. Once I threw some…

    Buttermilk Pancakes

    The ancient Greeks and Romans ate pancakes, sweetened with honey; the Elizabethans ate them flavored with spices, rosewater, sherry, and apples. They were traditionally eaten in quantity on Shrove Tuesday or Pancake Day, a day of feasting and partying before the beginning of Lent. No matter how you flip them, either with a spatula or in the air, they aren’t the easiest thing to make. Sometimes the first one just needs to be thrown away. The world’s first pancake mix was made by the R. T. Davis Milling Company, who hired storyteller, cook, and missionary worker Nancy Green as a spokesperson for their Aunt Jemima mix in 1890. Green was born in Montgomery County, Kentucky,…
