 Warm Orange Almond Cream Cheese Danish

This is a variation on my “Warm Strawberry Cream Cheese Danish”, originally published in LowCarb Energy Magazine in 2004. It’s great for breakfast, dessert, or anytime at all when you’d really like a little treat. The real fruit version has 9.2 net carbs, but you can whittle that down to just 4.6 by using sugar-free fruit-flavored syrup instead of the real McCoy. Employing this variation means you can also make ANY flavor you like – not just orange.  Servings: 1  –  Preparation time: 5 minutes – Cooking time: 40 minutes – Ready in: 45 minutes

Yet Another Spicy Chicken Salad
Yet Another Spicy Chicken Salad
Everyone has a favorite chicken salad – this is mine. With just 528 total calories including a generous amount of dressing and garnish, this makes a nutritious and filling main meal salad for any time of year, and any type of dieter.
Servings: 4 ~ Active Prep time: 20 min ~ Marinating time: 1 hour
7.8 net carbs per serving: 528 calories; 38.3g total fat (9.1g saturated); 11.4g carbs (3.5g fiber; 3.7g sugar) 33.5g protein


Tropical DeLite
Originally created for, this delicious molded salad makes a lovely side dish or dessert and will grace my Easter table this year alongside pineapple ham. Those with more liberal carb allowances can double the amount of pineapple and/or add some combination of chopped mandarin oranges, sliced grapes, and grated or diced apple. (Gelatin flavors, nuts, and fruit can be varied as desired as well, but this particular combo is excellent.) Unsweetened grated coconut, toasted or not, is another good addition.
Servings: 12 – Active Prep time: 5 minutes
5 net carbs per serving: 426 calories; 42.0g total fat (16.5g saturated) 5.8g carbs (0.8g fiber; 3.0g sugar) 6.7g protein
Italian Medley
This cold salad is a bit out of the ordinary. Makes a spectacular side dish, or simply add in some cooked protein before serving to turn it into an entree – I have used chicken, steak strips, tuna, and shrimp, which was my personal favorite.
Servings: 6 ~ Preparation time: 10 minutes
6.5 net carbs per serving: 186 calories; 14.1g total fat (4.1g saturated); 10.0g carbs (3.5g fiber; 2.8g sugar); 6.1g protein


Citrus Burst Cookies
At under 2 net carbs and a mere 67 calories each, these cookies are TRULY low carb!! Best of all, they taste and look like a special treat but are easy and fast to prepare. Serve a plate of several mixed flavors and colors for a lovely spring or Easter array that absolutely everyone can enjoy.
Servings: 32 ~ Preparation time: 10 minutes ~ Cooking time: 10 minutes ~ Ready in: 25 minutes
1.9 net carbs per cookie: 67 calories; 4.4g total fat (2.2g saturated); 2.1g carbohydrates (0.2g fiber; 0.7g sugar); 4.8g protein 


Garlic Cheddar Rolls
At LESS than six net carbs, with 5 full grams of dietary fiber and even loads of protein, you could almost say that this bread is “good for you”! One thing is for sure – these taste far better than just good! There’s NOTHING lacking in the texture – light yet chewy inside, with an audibly crunchy crust to rival a traditional baguette, PLUS the savory taste of onions, garlic, and cheese …. Mmmmmm! My husband and I, as well as my non-low-carbing friends and kids, can’t get enough of these.
Just 5.9 net carbs each: 151 calories; 8.4g total fat (3.4g saturated); 10.8g carbohydrates (4.9g fiber; 0.3g sugar); 11.1g protein

Angela2mc posted this feedback:  Karen, These were great!!! As soon as I saw this recipe, I used the link to order the Carbalose flour and oat fiber (and a few other items). I ate one a day last week for lunch, and I still lost 2 pounds!! This was making the batch into 6 rolls instead of 12. Yes, I’m back on the lc wagon, and this recipe just makes a salami sandwich possible!! Thanks so much for creating lc recipes!!   Angela


mschiller36 posted this:   FANTASTIC! but one is not enough, so I will say it again- FANTASTIC!! The entire family ate them, and everyone just thought they were multigrain rolls! So, for the last time- FANTASTIC!!  Just a note- I made them without the Oat Fiber 500, because I did not have any. I have ordered some, and will try them again, with the Oat Fiber 500, just to see if it makes any difference. I couldn’t imagine them being any better.   — Garlic Cheddar Rolls as PIZZA CRUST:  WOW!! SO GOOD!!! Stands up to the one hand hold too!! I took a picture and will upload it later this evening, or tomorrow. The other thing is that after 2 slices of pieces both DH and I were totally and completely FULL!!

  Ultimate Comfort Casserole Net Carbs: 2.9 – Servings: 12 – Yield: 13×9 pan Prep time: 20 minutes – Cooking time: 50 minutes – Ready in: 1 hour and 15 minutes Very low carbs and plenty of fiber rarely equal comfort food, but they do here! Perfect for any meal, this casserole features Carbquik bake mix in response to your feedback, and no matter what you think about most cauliflower-for-potato substitutions, this one works! (You can always make this recipe with any variety of TLC Bake mix instead if you wish, of course!)2.9 Net Carbs per serving: 450 calories; 38.2g total fat; (14.6g saturated) 136mg cholesterol; 853mg sodium; 8.1g carbohydrates (5.2g fiber; 0.9g sugar); 22.3g protein 
   Smothered Fiesta Bake The ultimate in tasty convenience: pre-cooked chicken strips with canned tomatoes and shredded cheese, wrapped in low-carb tortillas, smothered with canned green chili, more tomatoes. and of course, MORE CHEESE! On induction or avoiding all grains? Just omit the tortillas and layer the remaining ingredients in a 8×8 or 9×9 baking dish, which are delicious simply served over shredded lettuce! This method also works well for those with non-low-carbing familes, since the others can just scoop the cooked ingredients out into a regular tortilla.Servings: 6 – Preparation time: 15 minutes – Cooking time: 1 hour 12 Net Carbs per serving: 403 calories; 25.6g total fat (13g saturated); 19.4g carbohydrates (7.4g fiber; 1.4g sugar); 25.9g protein.Carb Saver (No Grain) Variation:  This variation is perfect for those with non-low-carbing familes, who can just scoop the cooked ingredients out into a regular tortilla, while you use a low-carb tortilla or simply eat it over lettuce, vegetables, or by itself. 6 Net Carbs per serving: 303 calories; 22.2g total fat (13g saturated); 6.4g carbohydrates (0.4g fiber; 1.4g sugar); 17.9g protein
Lemon Drop Soup
This soup was inspired by an old Greek recipe that I stumbled across, but I think the finished product has more of an Asian flair. No matter, the important part is: this is new, interesting, quick and easy to prepare, AND very low in carbs! Dairy and meat free, it makes a perfect side dish as-is, or you can always add tofu, chicken, fish, or almost any desired protein source (think: leftovers!) to make a complete one-pot meal.
Yield: 6 cups
Preparation time: 10 minutes – Cooking time: 25 minutes – Ready in: 35 minutes
2.8 Net Carbs per cup: 77 calories; 3.1g fat (0.9g saturated); 4.5g carbohydrates (1.7g fiber; 1.0g sugar); 7.4g protein 
Creamy Garlic Feta Dressing & Dip
Preparation time: 10 minutes – Ready in: 4 hours and 10 minutes
This is my new “family compromise” dressing – both Ranch and Bleu Cheese lovers like this one, eliminating my need to keep two different homemade dressings in the refrigerator at all times. Try this one soon with salad, low-carb chips, sliced vegetables, etc. It’s sure to be a hit on those holiday veggie and cracker trays!
Yield: 3 cups Servings: 24 (1 serving = 2 tablespoons)

CARBSAVER VARIATION: Substitute 2 Tb. Fiberfit powder for the 1 cup Splenda: 1.7 net carbs each: 2.8g carbohydrates (1.1g fiber; 0.36g sugar)



TLC Green Chili My children love this soup, originally published in Cooking TLC Vol. I way back in 2000! You can add jalapenos in place of some of the green chilies, if you like things spicier, and/or use chicken or turkey instead of pork. 6 Servings 

3 Net Carbs per serving: 296 cal, 19.5 g fat (5 g sat.), 5 g carb (2 g fiber), 22 g protein

Feedback posted by Ganette:  I LOVE this chili! It is one of my favorites to make once the weather is getting cold! I have made it with both chicken and pork and a combo of these, it uses up leftovers! I have even thrown in some leftover tomatoes I have had in the fridge that were getting a little mushy. I have also torn up pieces of tortilla and thrown them in instead of crackers as I eat it, yummy!! This a TRULY wonderful soup/chili! 

 Skillet Supreme

Net carbs: 6 Serves: 2 — Preparation time: 15 minutes — Cooking time: 30 minutes — Ready in: 45 minutes This recipe allows you to transform everyday staples and miscellaneous leftovers into a satisfying, down-home, no holds barred and no apologies offered classic comfort-food meal you can enjoy at any time of day. I find this meal especially handy on those occasions when I have failed to follow the Sacred Rule of Ps (Plenty of Prior Planning Prevents Poor Performance).

 Per serving: 592 calories; 47g total fat (18.5g saturated); 11.5g carbohydrates (5.5g fiber); 32g protein

Black Forest Squares An easy no-cook treat that’s perfect for too-hot-to-cook summer days, with VERY low carbs and dozens of potential variations… How about a vanilla crust with lemon topping? Maybe a strawberry crust with banana topping? You are limited only by your choice and selection of shake mix for the crust and Kool-Aid powder OR other other kinds of flavorings for the topping.

4.4 NET CARBS PER SERVING: 188 calories; 16.3g fat (9.4g saturated); 41mg cholesterol; 107.5mg sodium; 5.2g carbohydrates (0.8g fiber; 0.4g sugar); 6.9g protein

VARIATIONS: Endless! Switch up the liquid, the flavor of protein powder, and/or the flavorings in the topping to your heart’s desire. Crystal Light™ drink mixes, exotic natural flavorings, or plain ole’ grocery store banana flavorings, etc. all work well here.

Waffle-dillas  6-7 net carbs per serving This is more of a how-to than a actual recipe. I am always looking for new ways to combine legal ingredients, to keep things interesting. You can, of course, use anything for the filling, but I’m going to give you nutritional data for a couple specific and different ideas. I think my favorite combination of fillings may be pizza, so that is what I have illustrated first..

Serves: 2  6.9 NET CARBS per serving: 298 calories; 20.5g total fat; 53mg cholesterol; 972mg sodium; 15.8g carbohydrates (9.0g fiber; 1.6g sugar);20.4g protein CLUB VARIATION –  5.8g net carbs – 433 calories; 27.2g total fat; 73.0mg cholesterol; 18.6g carbohydrates (12.9g fiber; 0.8g sugar); 35.5g protein

Hawaiian Pizza Pleaser – 9 net carbs Okay, so it’s not really pizza … it is close enough for me! Piling the toppings high and getting the tortilla “crust” as crispy as possible helps the illusion along…

Serves 2
8.9 NET CARBS per serving: 209 calories; 10.9g total fat; 39mg cholesterol; 758mg sodium; 13.7g carbohydrates (4.8g fiber; 5.2 g sugar); 17.3g protein

 Old-Fashioned Vanilla Ice Cream This was such a big hit at the 2002 Retreat, that I decided to serve it again this time, and to release the recipe in time for Memorial Day parties. The full recipe fills an old-fashioned ice cream maker and feeds a crowd, but a smaller version works great in those quick-freeze makers too! This is technically “frozen custard”, but old-fashioned ice cream sounds much better. With just 3 carbs per serving, making this from scratch is very much worth your effort! This makes a thick batter that was stiff enough to scoop, even when prepared in a quick-free ice cream maker. Even non-low-carbers are sure to scrape their bowls!

Servings: 16 ~ Yield: approximately 12 cups Per serving: 2.9 net carbs: 384.4 calories; 37.9g total fat (23.5 g saturated); 169.3mg cholesterol; 334.3mg sodium; 2.9g carbohydrates (0.0g fiber; 0.3g sugar); 9.3g protein

30-Minute Crispy Chicken NET CARBS: 4.3 to 9.3 (depending on ingredients) Thirty-minute meals are always welcome in my home! You can vary the herbs as desired, serve this on a bed of spring greens as shown, for a tasty all-in-one meal, use in a not-so-common sandwich, or simply serve as an entree’ with your favorite side dishes. Non-low-carbers loved this, too.  Servings: 4 Preparation time: 5 minutes Cooking time: 25 minutes Ready in: 30 minutes Nutrition (per serving): 425.3 calories; 21.1g total fat (3.90g saturated); 109.7mg cholesterol; 11.7g carbohydrates (2.4g fiber; 0.6g sugar); 49.4g protein

CARB-SAVER VARIATIONS: Remember that Dr. Atkins encouraged the use of oat bran, because of its health properties, even though it does have quite a few carbs. In Dr. Atkins’ Vita-Nutrient Solution: Nature’s Answer to Drugs, he states: “Wheat bran, oat bran, guar gum, apple pectin, and all of the pure fiber supplements contain very little digestible carbohydrates and therefore do not count as calories or toward your total carbohydrate intake.” Of course, I am still counting the oat bran carbs here, but I do not let them worry me if they *seem* high, given Dr. A’s stance. That said, if you still wish to reduce these carbs per serving, or need to substitute ingredients, you can substitute crushed pork rinds, almond flour, or just additional parmesan cheese for the specified oat bran. Substituting almond flour instead (the healthiest alternative in my opinion) results in 4.3 net carbs, as follows: 465 calories; 26.3g total fat; 6.3g carbohydrates (2.0g fiber; 1.0g sugar); 49.9g protein

Very Cherry Cake Preparation time: 5-10 minutes – Cooking time: 35-40 minutes – Ready in: 45-60 minutes

Net Carbs: 7.9 or less, depending on variations employed. Originally created for and served at the TLC 2005 Retreat, this cake is so moist you won’t need or want icing, but a dollop of whipped cream or low-carb ice cream on top is always lovely.Servings: 16 — Yield: Full-size cake, 28 small cupcakes, or 16 extra-large

NUTRITION (per 1/16th serving): 7.9 Net Carbs: 267 calories; 22.1g fat (8.6 g saturated); 89 mg cholesterol; 199 mg sodium; 10.7g carbohydrates (2.8g fiber; 5.2g sugar); 9 g protein

 NUTRITION (per 1/28th serving): 4.52 Net Carbs: 153 calories; 12.6g total fat (4.9 g saturated);6.1g carbohydrates (1.6g fiber; 3 g sugar); 5.1g protein

 Unbelievable Pecans 3.6 net carbs per serving – Preparation time: 5 minutes – Cooking time: 10 minutesF ull of healthy fats, sugar-free, with protein grams almost equal to both fiber and net carbs, this is my idea of a truly healthy, extremely tasty snack! This recipe is hidden away in Volume II as a variation to another recipe, but the ingredients sound so odd together that no one has ever tried them on their own, to my knowledge. Yet, no one ever does anything but express surprise over how good they are, and then reach for more, once I actually force some on them! We spent some time at the 2005 Retreat discussing a better name for this snack, and eventually settled on ‘Unbelievable Pecans’ (Princess Sara’s suggestion, because as she said, “no would ever believe how good these things are just from reading the recipe. “)Servings: 6 – Yield: 2 cupsNutrition (per 1/3 cup serving): 3.6 Net Carbs – 306 calories; 31.4g fat (6.9g saturated); 6.9g carbohydrates (3.4g fiber; 1.8g sugar); 3.4g protein

 Italian Pasta Salad 10 or less Net Carbs — Preparation time: 20 minutes — Ready in: 1 hour and 20 minutes6.83 “Digestible” Net Carbs when prepared with Dreamfields pasta, or just 10 Net Carbs when prepared with Bella Vita shells, this was a big hit at the 2005 Retreat!

Servings: 12  NUTRITION Per 1/12th serving: 6.83 “Digestible Net Carbs” – 370 calories; 57% calories from fat; 24.0g total fat (5.0g saturated); 16 mg cholesterol; 304 mg sodium; 32.6g carbohydrates (3.5g fiber; 22.3g “non-digestible carbs”; 0.7g sugar); 9.8g protein VARIATION: Substitute Bella Vita™ low-carb shells for Dreamfield’s. 10 Net Carbs per serving – 349 calories; 24.g fat (5g saturated); 16.1g carbohydrates (6.1g fiber; 2.7g sugar); 23.9g protein

About Karen

Less than a year after starting a low-carb diet, I was TEN SIZES and SIX HUNDRED cholesterol points lighter! Now, YEARS later, (I am into "decades" now) I STILL love and live a low-carb life! Interests I have TWO grand-angels now, a husband of 24 years, and two kids, one of whom is grown and making those grandbabies (my girl), the other still in school (my boy). I do everything for the office end of my husband's electrical contracting business, as well as everything for my website(s), and am fortunate enough to (read that: I worked my butt off so I could!) live in the beautiful Vail Valley of Colorado. When I can find a spare minute, which isn't that often, I like to ride my big bad motorcycle or ski, depending on the weather.
