Kimmie has me painting bottles for her to make stuff

Found that a Lazy Susan works best for painting bottles.  Just spin it a little and paint works great!

Welcome to the forum first off.   Your right about having folks give ideas and helping along as you go it does make a huge difference

When I started my eating plan I was just south of 300 and I could not tolerate anymore being that heavy
So I started the low carb way and dropped 50 lbs but since this COVID-19 crap I have put some back on now about to get back on track and looking forward to it in a big way

Hope others will join in and let’s get going together!

Appetizers / My take on low carb Doritos
« on: September 09, 2020, 12:14:03 PM »
Made these last night.  I took lavish bread cut to the size I wanted then baked.  After they were crispy i spritz with PAM oil and dropped into a bowl of cheese powder with a little onion and garlic powder.  These were really good, a good sub for high carb corn chips! 

Found the cheese powder at a spice shop    Ranch powder next!

Baking / Re: Sealing lavish bread after stuffing

That's something I learned the hard way.  Have to watch sauces and condiments.  Some are serving sizes of 1tsp, 2 tbs, or 1/4 cup.  sometimes i think the manufactures use the serving size to mislead since the calorie count per serving must now be shown in large numbers.
So True.      Guess I was hoping I was right and the count was great but my and tummy & eyes deceived me   :D :D

Looks good.  It has been my experience with Lavash bread that it doesn't have the "texture" to hold up to stuffing or being used as a wrap.  When encountering any dampness they tended to fall apart.  The nutrional guide on the package needs to be read carefully.  A serving is actually 1/2 of a slice of the bread, so a total of 12 carbs per sheet. I recently picked up some Mission low carb tortillas, whole wheat I think, were only 4 net carbs per wrap.  Used one recently to make a Calzone, came out pretty good.
Dang, how did I miss that?  Well guess an eye doctor visit is in mu future ::)  LOL

Sorry for the miss information, I just knew I read the info correctly  :o

As for wraps, if you brush a bit of oil on it then wrap and place on pan and don't move it seems to work well (for me anyways)

Baking / Sealing lavish bread after stuffing
« on: August 17, 2020, 02:04:59 PM »
I wanted to see if I could "Glue" the edges of the lavish bread down with egg and keep any filling inside and here is the first try at a large cook.   

I did this a few weeks back but it was a small piece and not stuffed as much.

For this cook I used two sheets lavish bread, cheese and meat then sealed it with one egg beaten and brushed on.

Now, the main part to keeping it sealed is to let the egg sit for about 10 mins aftyer you brush it on and lay the two piece together and you may need to press a few times to get it to seal.

I would recomend using foil under it till ready to bake because there will be some egg that comes out and will get on the surface your working on.  If you decide to bake it on foil I recomend you spraying PAM on the new foil so the egg does not stick to the foil and causes a mess. 

Please don't ask why I know this! ;) 

Sorry no cut pictuers of the finished bread stuffed and cut

Desserts / Another try at sopaipillias

After the first try at something sweet with lavish bread I decided to try something else.
I have had these honey crystals in my stash for sometime and have looking to use them.

This gace it a honey taste without all the carbs!  You can find it at Wal Mart

The carb count is 3 carbs per teaspoon and believe it or not it only took 1 teaspoon to
flavor the sheet of bread along with one packet of Pyure sweetner

Baking times are the same 3 to 4 mins at 350 temp

Desserts / Low carb sopaipillias (sorta)

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
