Italian Dressing Mix

Italian Dressing Mix

I have been building up my repertoire of mixes lately. (Check out my Very Low Carb Flour Mix, All Purpose Seasoning Mix, and BBQ Base mixes!)

 

If you are low carbing, you will want to be careful of seasoning mixes and packets. Many have thickening agents (i.e. arrowroot or cornstarch); others have anti-clumping properties, which can add carbohydrates to the total. Of course, many of us home cooks have been doing many homemade things for years and years—including sauces, seasoning mixes, and more—in an effort to either save money or be able to put into our foods exactly what we want (and know what that is!).

Beef and Pork Roasts in the Crock Pot [With Low Carb and Family Friendly Tips]

Beef and Pork Roasts in the Crock Pot [With Low Carb and Family Friendly Tips]

If you follow our Crock Pot posts, you have read about the many soups and stews that I do for our lunch on the days that we teach classes. Our oldest son is soup-crazy, so I started the tradition for him as he comes to teach with me each week.

Classes are over for the summer, but I do want to continue the crock pot tradition because so many of the entrees in the crock pot are so simple–and one dish!

Monterey Marinade

[Sugar-Free] Monterey Marinade

 

I like to marinate meats in a bbq type/Tex Mex marinade when using them in fajitas, bbq, etc. (Even if I am adding bbq sauce at cooking time, I still love that flavor-infusion from marinading in this mixture!)

Sugar-Free Sweet & Spicy BBQ Sauce

Sugar-Free Sweet & Spicy BBQ Sauce

Sugar-Free Sweet and Spicy BBQ Sauce

One of the primary uses for my BBQ Sauce Base is definitely to make BBQ sauce! I love sweet BBQ—but I also love foods with a little zip. This sauce give me both!

 

I like the sweetness just as it is, but you might like a little more or a little less bulk sweetener. Also, I like the spice as is, but you might want to adjust your base (i.e. omit the chili powder) or lessen the liquid smoke if you feel it is too spicy for your family.

Sugar-Free Milk Chocolate Bars (THM S, Low Carb)

Sugar-Free Milk Chocolate Bars (THM S, Low Carb)

 

This is my favorite non-peanut butter “skinny chocolate/fat bomb” recipe. The shape of the molds I use and the “fairly normal” chocolate taste of these remind me of the old chocolate candy from my childhood called “Ice Cubes.”

Sugar-Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Bars (THM S, Low Carb)

Sugar-Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Bars (THM S, Low Carb)

This is the one. This is the recipe that made me think I could really enjoy “skinny chocolate.” Okay, it’s not really skinny chocolate because it has peanut butter in it, but it is wonderful. You want these in your freezer at all times to help you stay sugar-free painlessly

Healthy Pizzadillas (Low Carb, THM)

Healthy Pizzadillas (Low Carb, THM)

 

Once I got on to using crepes (and/or tortillas, depending on your preference) for so many things (advice from DJ Foodie of Low Carbing Among Friends), I went crazy! There are literally dozens of things to do with crepes (savory or sweet) and/or tortillas—low carb or other!

Five Sugar-Free Cream Cheese Frostings

Five Sugar-Free Cream Cheese Frosting Recipes

 

 

One of the low carb, sugar-free treats that I have not enjoyed is the many frosting recipes that are out there. Combining Pyure (or other sugar-free, healthy sweeteners) with butter hasn’t yielded a good taste in my opinion. I feel like the sweetener overpowers the frosting—and you can really tell that it is not powdered sugar in there!

 

So…in keeping with my theory of diluting the less-familiar (and maybe less desired) tastes in my recipes, I have been toying with cream cheese frostings for two years now. And I’ve made it!

Sugar-Free Reishes’ Cups

Reishes' Cups [Sugar Free, THM]

 

When my husband and I were in high school, the school had a spirit week featuring the basketball players before their sectional tourney. The theme was a candy store, and each player was assigned a candy or spin-off of his name or personality, etc. It just so happened that my husband and his brother were in the same grade, both Varsity starters and both had the last name of Reish.

 

Enter Reishes’ Cups. Packages of Reese’s cups pairs were everywhere in the spirit week store, made over with a new label—Reishes’ Cups.

Make Your Own Sugar Free Powdered & Brown Sugar

Make Your Own Sugar Free Powdered and Brown Sugar

Most healthy bakers need a brown sugar and a powdered sugar substitute. Most of us are tired of spending the money and time to gather so many substitutes. Good news!

 

With these two little “recipes,” you can whip up your own brown sugar and/or powdered sugar quickly without constantly buying more products!
