Desserts / Low carb sopaipillias (sorta)
« on: August 14, 2020, 03:57:38 PM »
After I made the crackers I needed something sweet so I added cinnamon and Cliff's sugar replacement mix to some and baked.  Tasted really good sorta like mexican sopaipillias

Kimmie liked them so win win for me ;)

Mix is 3/4 cup Erythritol (I use NOW brand) and 1/4 teaspoon of Stevia (Better Stevia extract)
use just like sugar.  Good stuff

I was needing something to use for a cracker then thought LAVISH bread !!   Works great

Just cut into the size you want spritz with a tad of PAM spray add salt or whatever you want and back at 350 for 3 to 4 mins

Have you ever smoked hot dogs?   I mean low and slow for 1.5 hrs or so?   Well, I did and wow they were great!

I was smoking a couple of pork loins for Kimmie and her friends for Mondays lunch so I thought I would toss on some hot dogs and Coneuh
sausage for lunch Sunday.

They were so good and no dry like you would think.  Pump and juicy

Smoked them on the Rec-Tec for 1.5 hrs at 235 with an A-Maze-N smoke tray with hickory/apple mix

Ate them up before I remembered to get anymore pictures

Beef / TentHunters Low Carb taco mix
« on: July 24, 2020, 06:31:24 PM »
Here is the basic Taco recipe Cliff (TentHunter) gave me and I have been using for years GREAT STUFF..

But wait there is MORE!!  LOL

Here is a newer version which is close but adds Cumin and backs the salt down a little bit.

This recipe has been in all my post for the last few years dealing with Taco's, Taco Salad's, low carb bake and Enchilada's

If you like tacos you got to try either one vs the store bought stuff

Taco Seasoning Mix from Cliff  good stuff!

Per lb of meat:

1 1/2 tsp Chili Powder  (0 net carb)
1 tsp Paprika  (0 net carb)
3/4 - 1 tsp  Salt
1/4   tsp Black Pepper, fine ground (0 net carb)
1/4   tsp Oregano  (0 net carb)
1/2 tsp Onion powder  (1g net carb)
1/4   tsp Garlic Powder (0.5g net carb)

The entire batch, as listed, contains only 1.5 net carbs, with a total glycemic load of less than 1 for the entire batch.

In other words it has no effective impact on blood sugar!

Taco seasoning #2

Taco Seasoning Mix from Cliff  good stuff!

Per lb of meat:

1 1/2 tsp Chili Powder  (0 net carb)
1/4 to 1/2 Cumin Powder   (to taste)
1 tsp Paprika  (0 net carb)
1/2 to 3/4  tsp  Salt
1/4   tsp Black Pepper, fine ground (0 net carb)
1/4   tsp Oregano  (0 net carb)
1/2 tsp Onion powder  (1g net carb)
1/4   tsp Garlic Powder (0.5g net carb)

Casseroles & Other Main Dishes / Low Carb ravioli (1st Try)
« on: July 17, 2020, 02:50:45 PM »
Last night I got to thinking "What else can I make with the Lavish Bread"?
So I got to looking into different things and one thing that kept popping in my head was ravioli. 
Now I know that ravioli is made from raw dough then cooked by boiling in water till done but any dough I've tried is not low carb and low carb is
what I'm shooting for. 

So, here is my first rty at this "Low Carb"     Ravioli but these could be used for fried won tong as well with spice added

I used egg as a binder to hold the edges together and baked them for this first try.

Beef / Low carb Enchiladas using Lavish Bread
« on: July 15, 2020, 03:54:47 PM »
 So I got to wanting enchiladas and got to thinking that lavish bread is close to wraps so I gave it a try

I used 2 full sheets cut each in half which gave me 4 enchiladas, stuffed with taco meat and cheese

Here is the start to finish in pictures (there are a lot) Boy these were very good just like what you would get at a Mexican restaurant

I baked them for 15 mins on 350 temp then went back and added a little extra cheese for good measure

General Discussion / After months of looking
« on: June 11, 2020, 06:42:47 PM »
After months of looking and doing some studying I bought a new side arm.   It's a Smith &  Wesson Shield 9mm EZ   There goes a new grill!

I would say a toy but guns ARE NOT TOYS

With hand issues like 6 surgeries 3 each hand and both shoulders being worked on I figured this was a safe bet

Kimmie said if I get good with it I can keep ONE bullet in my front pocket just in case I need to use it  :D :D :D

I asked last month or so about a Ruger 5-7 but cost is high and bullets are not cheap.


Appetizers / Genoa Salami roll
« on: May 27, 2020, 07:32:06 PM »
I know it's not a big thing but for an Italian not to eat  a Genoa salami sandwhich from time to time is heart breaking

So I cheat a little and make salami rolls out of lavish bread and thin cut Genoa salami  ;)

Baking / A new twist on Low Carb Lasagna
« on: May 25, 2020, 02:17:35 PM »
Was driving home from work Friday and it hit me, I wanted lasagna but how to keep it lower carb than with noodles??

 I decided on lavish bread as the noodles but was not sure how I was going to pull it off but here it is
First cut bead to fit dish

Then add filling to first layer

Then another layer of bread with more filling

top with last layer of bread and fillingBaked at 350 for 35 mins                     

NOTE: for first time I used precooked meat so no danger of meat not being cooked all the way through

Time to eat, very good noodles were ok like soft noodles that were over cooked a little BUT worth the carb savings!

This is a shot the next morning to show layers
