Fiberfit Cherry Custard

We were inundated with cherries this year, 20 pounds at least, and I wanted to try something new with some of them. This recipe makes 12 servings with 99.6 calories; 5.7g fat; 8.9g carbohydrates (1.7g fiber; 3.8g sugar); and 3.4g protein per serving. If you buy into the ‘net carb’ theory, that is just over 7 per serving.

Low Sugar Apple 'Shine

Origins of original recipe lost to time – Google it and you’ll see what I mean. I really need to thank all of my brothers for making and raving about the full-sugar version so many times that I finally broke down over Christmas and converted it so that I could try it, too. They were RIGHT, people…. this stuff is DELICIOUS. I can’t help but think that it is far “safer” to drink it without all the sugar, too – morning-after “sweet” hangovers are really terrible, as I recall!

Layered Orange Cranberry Cheesecake

Why have I never seen this done before?

While making a cheesecake yesterday, I realized I had no sour cream and would have to improvise a little from my “usual”.

I also had 2 cups of leftover homemade cranberry sauce on hand that I needed to use up, and then I spied Orange Crush water flavoring sitting there near the sink, and realized it had enough food coloring in it to do “double duty”.

I revised my classic Volume 1 recipe just a bit, ending up with this three layer seasonal treat. You could do this with any […]

Quiche TLC

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 the leftovers can be efficiently transformed the next night in a quiche which will seem like an entirely different meal. “Real Women” (and men) just don’t have time to reinvent the wheel every night; anytime that I can cook two meals at once, I consider myself blessed.

Yogurt TLC

Yogurt TLC

“Yogurt? you say…. What’s this about yogurt? I thought as low-carb dieters we couldn’t eat yogurt anymore!” So began my quest, a year or more ago…. some people on an internet message board where I participated were talking about a “yogurt exception”.

Heavenly Mousse

This was one of my first really good creations, and when I shared the recipe with my new online buddies, they started telling me I should write a cookbook. One of them actually dubbed this OIAB (“O” In A Bowl…. if you still don’t get it… never mind!).
