Quick little quickie!

SPINACH-GORGANZOLA QUICHE CUPS   I love quiche in any way, shape, or form.  It’s comforting to me…the possibilities are innumerable…and they are protein-filled while being fairly low in calories.  A complete meal in a finger food!  (I love LOADED quiche, so I added a little more spinach in the ones photographed.) These freeze wonderfully, so make…

Deviled Eggs…yet another way

SOUTHWEST DEVILED EGGS I mean, really…can you have too many deviled eggs?!  This is on old recipe that I’ve made for a long time and love.  How spicy depends on your taste, but when the snack attack comes around, you’ll be ready with a plate of these in the fridge. ~~~~     10 hard-boiled…

No-flour bread. Riiiiiiiiight….

CLOUD BREAD This recipe has been around for awhile.  I’ve poo-pooed it and thought:  GAG.  But that just goes to show ya’…try it before you say you don’t like it! I have to thank so many people from Before&AfterChat message board for being ‘pushers’ and talking incessantly about this stuff.  I finally broke down and…

New Year…back on track…how about some protein?!

MY FAVORITE EGG SALAD Super simple…Plain Jane, no frills. This is the egg salad that I keep in the fridge to wrap in lettuce leaves or to eat with a spoon out of a bowl.  Nothing fancy.  You probably have a favorite way of making yours…this is mine. One secret that makes it super quick…

Low Carb Crepes…a great stand-in for a whole lotta stuff…

Crepes (Low-carb, higer-protein) I use these in so many more ways than just “crepes”.   In both sweet or savory recipes, as wraps, tortillas, noodles – they are a great way to still make those dishes you love without the unneeded carbs. Don’t be afraid of making crepes – and you don’t need a special…

WHAT’S in that cake?!

FLOURLESS CHOCOLATE CAKE When I saw this recipe I was very skeptical…usually these kind leave a LOT to be desired. But this is one moist and delicious dessert!  And unless you told someone they would never, in a million years, guess what the secret ingredient was. It’s very flavorful and rises well…not eggy or too…

Get ’em while the gettin’s good!

AVOCADO DEVILED EGGS These will not last long…take them to a party or a potluck and they will disappear before your eyes! Handsome little devils, for sure.   High-protein eggs filled with creamy good-for-us avocados…WOW.  Make lots. ~~~~     (Prepare these not too long before serving, as the avocados may turn dark.) 6 hard…

Gorgeous Greens!

SPINACH CHEESE BAKE This is a beautiful way to eat your veggies!  Moist, full of flavor and good for you carbs – it’s a great side dish or a vegetarian meal on it’s own. I’ve added cooked, chopped turkey bacon to this before also, and any variety of cheese I happen to have on hand. …

Hello, morning!

PLUM CLAFOUTIS Silk pajamas, gauzy curtains, a sweet morning breeze through the window…a sleeping kitty, a captivating book, a cup of coffee laced with cream – and a gorgeous Clafouti studded with ruby jewels…sigh… I’m not sure if it’s supposed to be a dessert, but I like it for breakfast. With a little warm cream…

There are no words. Wait…yes, there is. YUM with a capital YUM!

ONION CUSTARDS There aren’t many things that smell better than sweet onions simmering in butter!  Slowly coaxing them into a golden brown color  makes them so, so good! I used Montery Jack cheese in these, only because I wanted them NOW, and didn’t have Swiss, which is what I really planned on using.  They were…
