Mix all of the ingredients in a medium bowl; beat well with an electric mixer. Pour into a buttered 9-inch pie plate. Bake at 350 45-55 minutes, until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool on a rack, then chill well before serving. Serve with whipped cream, if desired.

This is pretty close to the Libby's pumpkin pie filling recipe. I think I will use more cream instead of the 1/4 cup water next time. The carbs per serving would still be the same. I thought this had a bit of a salty taste with the 1/2 teaspoon called for, but the amount of salt is what every pumpkin pie recipe I've seen calls for. I will cut it down to 1/4 teaspoon next time.

Default Grouper Salad

Grouper Salad *

Proportions depend upon the amount of grouper you buy. I buy 1 lb. raw, fresh grouper from the seafood market to make grouper salad for 6 - 8 servings.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Rinse grouper and pat dry. Lay on a shallow baking sheet sprayed with Pam and lined with aluminum foil. Squeeze half a lemon over the grouper and seal with another sheet of foil. Bake 30 min. or until the grouper is white and flakes easily with a fork. Allow fish to cool until you can comfortably handle it.

Remove grouper from bones and pick through carefully to find any stray small bones. Then make grouper salad much as you might make tuna salad. I add:

1/2 to 1 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup finely chopped red bell pepper
1/4 cup finely chopped sweet onion or red onion
salt, freshly ground pepper to taste

Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour before serving.

*You can use any mild-flavored, firm-fleshed white fish for this recipe, including fresh tuna.

Default TGI Friday's Spinach and Artichoke Dip

Default Valrock's Cream of "Potato" Soup (crock pot recipe)

This is sheer genius from Valrock: Creamy "Potato Soup" (tastes like the soup at Chili's) *

1 16 oz bag frozen cauliflower
1 8oz brick cream cheese
1 cup chicken broth
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 small onion chopped
2 cloves garlic minced

Garnish:
a few slices of bacon, crumbled
a dollop of sour cream
shredded cheddar cheese
sliced chives

Put all ingredients (EXCEPT the cream cheese) in the slow cooker on high for about 4 hours (I threw some chicken in there too for good measure).

About 30 minutes before serving, mash everything up in the cooker with a potato masher. Don't pulverize ii... just mash it up a little. Cut the cream cheese into smaller cubes and dump it in.

Once the cream cheese is melted, stir it all up and serve with the garnishes!

Note: Valrock suggests you may want to double the recipe since she uses a small crock pot.

Note: I ran the carb count of each ingredient in FitDay; it comes up 31 carbs in the entire recipe. If you have 3 one-cup servings, it's 10 carbs per 8 oz. cup. I did not include carb count of garnishes.

Default Oven- Barbecued Boneless Pork Ribs

These are delicious...put them in the oven and forget them.

I used Kraft's Original Light Barbecue Sauce and reduced the total amount of sauce to 3/4 cup. I put 1/2 cup of sauce on the ribs when I prepared them for the oven and less than 1/4 cup sauce during the last half an hour.

If I could find Scott's Barbecue Sauce in my local grocer (it's disappeared!), I'd use it. (zero carbs)

Default Caesar Salad

Caesar Salad

In a blender, mix 1/2 cup grated pecorino Romano cheese with 1 cup Hellman's mayonnaise (I use Duke's), 1/3 cup water, 1 T. red-wine vinegar, 2 garlic cloves, 2 anchovies, and 1/2 tsp. each Worcestershire, Tabasco, and ground white pepper. Blend. Season to taste.

Toss with chopped romaine lettuce; add more cheese and pepper.

Note: I omit the anchovies and reduce Tabasco to 1/8 tsp.

Default Big Salad for Two...High Protein

Big Salad

2 c. romaine, chopped
4 strips of bacon, cooked crispy, drained and chopped
2 soft-boiled eggs, halved
8 oz. London Broil steak, grilled and sliced thinly against the grain
8 cherry tomatoes, halved
1/2 avocado sliced
2 T. crumbled bleu cheese
10 pods, sugar snap peas (steamed 2 minutes, sliced on the diagonal)

Arrange ingredients on a platter for serving or divide ingredients into two salad plates.

Top with your favorite salad dressing and enjoy. Annie's Green Goddess Dressing is recommended - 2 carbs per 2 T. - I like homemade sugar-free honey mustard salad dressing with this salad.

Default Taco Dip That's Dinner...

Linsy posted a delicious-sounding taco bake; I've adapted it for two servings.

Taco Bake for Two...

4 oz. ground beef (I use 90/10)
1/4 large sweet onion, chopped
1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
1 garlic clove, peeled and chopped
2 tsp. Taco Seasoning Mix (I used Ortega)
4 oz. sharp cheddar cheese, grated and divided in half
2 oz. cream cheese, softened

Nice additions: chopped green chilis, salsa, sour cream.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Sautee ground beef, onion, garlic and red pepper over medium heat in a little bacon drippings or olive oil. Sprinkle the taco seasoning over the beef/vegetable mixture and stir. When the beef begins to lose its pink color, turn the skillet on low heat, cover, and allow the peppers to become a little soft and the onions to carmelize.

Spray a small oven-proof dish with non-stick spray.* In a small bowl, mix the cream cheese and half of the cheese together. Spread the cheese mixture thinly in bottom of baking dish. Top with the beef/vegetable mixture. Sprinkle reserved cheese evenly on top. Bake at 350 degrees until it's hot and bubbly.

Serve with pork rinds as a "Dip That's Dinner" with a green salad.

*Ortego Taco Seasoning lists 4 carbs per tablespoon. Two teaspoons would be approximately 3 carbs.

Default Low Country Pimento Cheese

Low Country Pimento Cheese
Pimento Cheese

A loyal Rebel, I love pimento cheese, southern style:
8 oz. sharp cheddar - grated (do it yourself - it's too dry if you buy it already shredded)
1/4 - 1/2 c. Duke's Mayonnaise (sounds like too much, but it will be absorbed)
1 large jar chopped pimentos - including juice
dash red pepper flakes
freshly ground black pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients. Refrigerate in covered container. Enjoy with celery sticks, heat for 30 sec. in microwave and scoop it up with pork rinds, top a boring no-bun burger, stir it into mashed cooked cauliflower, scramble it into eggs, stuff an omelet. I could live off of it!

Your pimento cheese will be better after it sits for a while. Before you plan to use it, set it out to soften so it will spread and dip nicely. You can put in and out of the frig a zillion times; you can drag it around to a picnic or on roadtrips with no problem. It keeps in the refrigerator for a week...maybe more, but I always eat it.

People who say, "I hate pimento cheese," either don't like cheese at all or have only had nasty grocery store, deli, or some other imposter. They will become converts. Make it and they will come.

Default Cheesecake Muffins

Fatklr posted:

Low-Carb Cheesecake Muffins

2-8oz cream cheese (softened)
1/2 cup Splenda or Truvia (or 1/4 cup DaVinci of Torani vanilla SF syrup)
2 eggs
1 tbsp lemon juice (if you want more lemon flavor, add a little finely grated lemon peel - be careful to get just the yellow part of the peel)
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 tsp vanilla (if you use the vanilla syrup, no need for this)

Soften cream cheese for 30 seconds in the microwave (or set it out well ahead of prep time). Mix all ingredients with electric mixer (add eggs one at a time) until smooth. Pour batter into 12 muffin cups. (Genius alternative: after you fill 6 of the cupcake tins, add 1 T. dark cocoa to the remaining batter - you'll have 6 chocolate cheesecakes and 6 plain cheesecakes.) Bake on 350 for 20 minutes. Place in refrigerator overnight.

*3 carbs per muffin based on entering the ingredients into FITDAY.
*Chocolate Cheesecake variation: add 2-3 T. unsweetened dry cocoa powder. I like Hershey's Special Dark Cocoa for rich chocolate flavor. The Chocolate Cheesecake variety checks in FITDAY at 3 carbs per muffin also.
