Well, I have no idea if I’m just slow on the uptake or what, but I have “just” discovered Carbquick baking mix.
Actually, I’ve seen it around for the last year that I’ve been low-carbing, but it’s really expensive at the local stores where I buy low-carb foods, so I have avoided it. BUT I’ve tried several other brands, such as Bob’s Mill, which I absolutely HATED. The biscuits I made with the other brands came out like bad-tasting hockey pucks.
Well, I caved the other day and bought a $20 box of Carbquick. Even while I was making the cheddar/garlic biscuits from the recipe on the side of the box for dinner yesterday, I didn’t have much hope for it. (90 calories and 2 net carbs per 2 biscuits when making 12 biscuits per recipe)
Boy was I wrong! These biscuits equaled Bisquick in my opinion, and my hubby said they were the best biscuits I’ve ever made (though I tried not to take offence since I used to make them from scratch).
Anyway, I highly recommend this stuff. I’ve found it for much cheaper on Netrition.com and am ordering a couple more boxes. The Carbquick website has a plethora of really tasty looking recipes I will be trying.
I’ll keep you posted! I am going to try the pizza dough recipe tomorrow, and I have a special family recipe that uses white bread dough to make these tasty meat pockets… Can’t wait!
