    Pimento Cheese

    Maybe it’s a Southern thing, but pimento cheese is a staple in the South. We all grew up on it-filling soft, white bread (sometimes crustless) with it. This is my own creation for a homemade spread. Use it to fill sandwiches or on celery. I put it on lowcarb wraps. You can also add fresh, minced jalapeno peppers to the mix-you won’t be sorry you did. Print Pimento Cheese Servings 8 Ingredients 1 c medium cheddar or longhorn cheese grated 3/4 c monterey jack cheese grated 1/2 c sharp cheddar cheese grated 2/3 c real mayonnaise not salad dressing-i use duke's 4 oz cream cheese room temperature 4 Tbsp diced…

    Cheesy Breadsticks

    It’s all the rage in the “Low Carb World” – FAT HEAD. Originally Fat Head was a documentary directed and starring Tom Naughton that blew up the theory of nutrition and lipid hypothesis. Surprisingly, Naughton’s ending, as compared to the documentary Super Size Me, revealed his overall cholesterol had dropped from 222 to 209, his LDL dropped from 156 to 130, and his HDL (good stuff) increased from 49 to 64! But that’s another story altogether. The Holy Grail of low carb pizza dough, bread dough and any other kind of dough you could ever dream of is called Fat Head Dough. It’s wheat-free, grain-free and seriously amazing, if I…

    The Other Side

    Not a fan. At all. Cauliflower is not my friend-that’s what makes low carb eating difficult for me. That and the hatred of eggs. No offense, Cauli Flower and Eh ggs. When I discovered potatoes dumped me too, and we had been in love for so many years, I had to reach out, join an online dating group and find someone new. That’s when I met this dish, and it’s as close as I can get to my true love without cheating on him. I call him “The OTHER Side.” Print The OTHER Side-Cheesy Cauliflower Bake Ingredients 2 pkgs 12 ounce each frozen cauliflower florets or 2 small heads fresh…

    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…
