Desserts and Sweets / LOW CARB Pound Cake
« on: March 27, 2012, 09:24:16 AM »
Nice recipe!



1/2 cup butter, softened
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
48 drops FAT TO SKINNY Zero Sweetener
5 eggs
1 teaspoon lemon or orange extract, optional
1-2 teaspoons vanilla
6 1/2 ounces almond flour (1 1/2 cups plus 2 tablespoons)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
Lemon or orange zest, optional


Put all of the ingredients in a medium bowl. Beat with an electric mixer until no bits of cream cheese remain and the batter is thick and fluffy. This will only take a minute or so. Spoon into a greased 9-inch round cake pan and spread evenly with a spatula. Bake at 350 50-55 minutes. I suggest checking the cake after 40 minutes or so because mine was done in less than 45 minutes. The cake will be golden brown and firm to the touch when done.

Dinner Recipes / Baked Chicken (Pork) Meatballs

I made these last night but used pork instead of chicken (just because it was thawed!). I used a low sugar/carb marinara sauce instead of her homemade sauce.  I served these over sauteed cabbage and we had fresh asparagus.   :) 

Product Reviews / Green Valley Ranch - strawberry syrup

I ordered this from Netrition $3.79.  Good stuff.  It is made with Splenda instead of the sugar alcohol.  2 Tablespoons 1 net carb.  I used the Strawberry in my One Minute Muffin this morning and it was great.  No bitter taste.

Product Reviews / Pumpkorn - Pumpkin Seeds
« on: March 08, 2012, 11:56:09 AM »
I order these Pumpkorn pumpkin seeds from  $1.99 for a 2.75 oz bag.  If I ate the entire bag the net carbs are 8.25 but of course I won't eat the entire bag all at once.  They come in several flavors but after reading the reviews I went with the Sea Salt.  They are great alternative to my snack of Almonds and inexpensive. 


Sides and Snacks / Bacon Wrapped Cabbage

I found this on Pinterest- wedge of cabbage, wrap in bacon, pat of butter, season with salt/pepper, garlic salt or whatever you like. Wrap in foil and grill or cook in oven.  Simple, easy clean up and tasty  :) :)

Product Reviews / Laughing Cow Cheese

I love all of the Laughing Cow Cheese flavors.  They are great for controlling portion size and only 2 net carbs.  I used the Cinnamon Cream Cheese this morning on my OMM, yum! :)

General Discussion / Oopsie Bread
« on: February 09, 2012, 10:10:37 AM »
I found this recipe on the web and searched here on the forum to see if anyone had posted about it.  It is called oopsie bread.  I made them last night and they are interesting.  I think they will make a wonderful french toast or hamburger bun. If you add sweetener, chocolate or nuts it could be more dessert like.   

3 large eggs
1 packet of Splenda (I used xylitol)
1 dash salt
1 pinch cream of tartar
3 ounces cream cheese
Oven at 300 degree
Separate the eggs and add Splenda, salt, and cream cheese to the yolks. Use a mixer to combine the ingredients together.
In a separate bowl, whip egg whites and cream of tartar until stiff (if you're using the same mixer, mix the whites first and then the yolk mixture).
Using a spatula, gradually fold the egg yolk mixture into the white mixture, being careful not to break down the whites.
Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick spray and spoon the mixture onto the sheet, making 6 mounds. Flatten each mound slightly.
Bake about 30 minutes (You want them slightly softer, not crumbly). Let cool on the sheet for a few minutes, and then remove to a rack and allow them to cool. Store them in a bread sack or a ziplock bag to keep them from drying out.

This recipe was given to me by a friend at work who has been following FTS plan for a few weeks and doing great.  It is simple, inexpensive and will make a great holiday treat (I had it for breakfast!)! It is on the Knox gelatin box!
I added sugar free strawberry flavor to this one.  I have ordered some pumpkin flavoring to try for Thanksgiving!

1 tsp vanilla
Optional - strawberry syrup/flavoring or your flavor of choice

In large bowl mix gelatin with xylitol. add water & stir while gelatin dissolves. With mixer, beat cream cheese and vanilla until smooth.  Pour into crust chill until firm (about 3 hours).

 >:( Yuck!  Maybe if you are a fan of flax you might like this.  Has a strong after taste.  I paid way too much $7.29 - Netrition. Was hoping for cereal like product but Not!  :o
