Quiche TLC

Quiche is easy to assemble, economical, delicious, and extremely versatile. It is “fair game” for any meal, at any time of day. It should be a part of every low-carber’s cooking repertoire!

Quiche is basically just a savory custard which is baked in the shape of a pie, with various added ingredients, usually (but not always) including cheese, cooked meat, and vegetables. This makes it an ideal dish in which to use up leftovers! In fact, I often make twice as much as I need for a meat-and-veggie meal, on purpose, knowing full well that […]

3-Ingredient Tartar Cod

You can use any kind of fish here, of course, and dress it up or down, make it sweet or savory depending on the relish used… next time I am cooking for adults, I think I will try hot pepper relish instead of dill.

I served this with a butternut squash soup that was almost as easy to prepare, and the perfect fall side dish. I will share that easy yet decadent recipe next.

 

Classic Cheese Crisps

This recipe comes from my first labor of love, COOKING TLC: Truly Low Carb Cooking, Volume 1, ISBN 0971492913, Copyright 2000. Popular for years before I ever heard of them, these are hardly original, but I consider them a MUST in every low carber’s repertoire. There are lots of ways to prepare these, but a skillet works for me every time, something I can’t say for the microwave method. 1/3 cup semi-hard to hard sliced or finely shredded cheese, such as Cheddar, Colby, Swiss, Parmesan, etc. Don’t try to use very soft cheeses such as Feta, Mozzarella, Brie, […]

HIDDEN CARBS: Find 'Em, Count 'Em!

HIDDEN CARBS: Find ‘Em, Count ‘Em!

If you don’t know about hidden carbs and want to make the most of your low-carb lifestyle, you really MUST learn how to find and avoid common hidden carbs in the foods you thought were “free” . (Not much in this life is *really* free – is it?) I compiled this list originally way back in the year 2000 and still find it useful.

Sometimes a label states 0 carbs per serving when there are actually quite a few carbs in a “real” size serving of the food! […]

Shrimp Tacos

shrimp tacos

Serving shrimp taco filling in a cheese crisp means I can make it gluten free and induction friendly. PER SERVING – 7.2 net carbs with 573 calories. INGREDIENT LIST: Pre-cooked shrimp, onion, jalapeno, cilantro, lime, sour cream, napa cabbage, cheddar cheese […]

Mockaroni and Cheese

Mockaroni and Cheese

Mockaroni and Cheese is a great low-carb, gluten-free substitute for an old favorite. If you only knew how many people have said to me “If you had told me there was tofu in it, I would not have even tasted it – but I LOVE IT!” […]

Boneless Buffalo Bites

Boneless Buffalo Bites

Delicious, fast, and low-carb, my Buffalo Bites are a family favorite, and induction friendly. […]

Festive Fajita Salad

Festive Fajita Salad

Festive Fajita Salad is one of my all-time favorite low-carb meals. Originally inspired when I ordered fajitas at a Chilis restaurant back in 2000 and requested a bed of lettuce in place of the tortillas. […]

Picante Sauce a.k.a. Salsa - loved by everyone

Vol 1 Picante Sauce

Picante Sauce

Another recipe loved by EVERYONE, not just dieters or low-carbers! Goes together in minutes and keeps in refrigerator for 4-7 days.

Recipe Notes: If not using thickener, I recommend straining off most of the juices (save them to use when seasoning ground beef for taco salads or wraps?) You may use all canned tomatoes (2 cans total) with excellent results, if fresh tomatoes are not in season or available, or take this shortcut: use 2 cans Mexican-style canned tomatoes (I prefer Rotel™) and skip or adjust the lime juice and green chilies.

Gluten-free Chips and Wraps on demand, in minutes?

Cheese Crisp BLT

Gluten-free Chips and Wraps on demand, in minutes?

You bet! Unless you have a problem with dairy, my best workaround for that particular situation is that old stand-by you just may have forgotten about – a personal favorite of mine from Cooking TLC Volume 1 and never far from my own mind …………. CHEESE CRISPS! (always said by me in the same dreamy, drooly tone Homer uses for donuts.)

You can easily form a warm cheese crisp into almost any desired shape. Cheese crisps make terrific wraps, taco shells, salad bowls, chips for dipping, the list goes on and […]

Stalled?

Don’t just ride the same old wave if you are not losing weight on your low-carb diet. BUT… don’t cut yourself short, either. To determine if you actually are losing, see my checklist of common mistakes. […]

Advance Food Prep Is Crucial!

Help Not Hype

Advance food preparation is the one thing that can practically ensure low-carb success. Regular, advance food preparation is the single most important thing low-carbers must do in order to succeed. It’s really not difficult, even if you don’t know how to cook, except for being time consuming. A lot like exercise, as far as that goes, but I assure you that both activities are worth your effort! […]

How To Start A Low-Carb Diet - and be successful

Help Not Hype

DO YOUR HOMEWORK

Please don’t try to succeed on a low carb Way of Eating without buying and reading at least one (1) low carb book, in its entirety, so that you will understand the metabolic process you are trying to achieve. Without a basic understanding of ketosis, you will have a much harder time making this work ~ and hey, MAKING IT WORK THIS TIME is the whole point, right? RIGHT!

My personal recommendations for low carb books include: Dr. Atkin’s New Diet Revolution, Atkins for Life – I had better include this one, since I was honored […]
