Egg Salad (No Mayo)

I have never been a fan of mayonnaise, so I studied several no-mayo egg salad recipes and came up with this version. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do! INGREDIENTS 6 eggs (hard-boiled) 5 tbsp of sour cream 1 tbsp of Löwensenf Mustard (Dijon can be used as a substitute) 4 cornichons (…

Crockpot Lamb Stew

This is a quick and delicious meal. It’s quick to throw all the ingredients into a crockpot and come home to a delicious smelling dinner. This stew goes very well with some fresh baked bread or rolls and either a hearty dark beer or a glass of red wine. INGREDIENTS 1lb Lamb, diced 1 cup…

No Bake Low-Carb Cheesecake

I personally use erythritol because it’s the only sugar substitute I am able to digest. INGREDIENTS 8 Oz. softened cream cheese (do not use the “whipped” kind, unless you want a…

For the savory version, they go great with left-over gravy or apple sauce. INGREDIENTS Mashed potatoes Eggs (about 1 egg per cup of mashed potatoes) Flour (about…

Key Lime Pie

Rosemary Chicken

This is a healthier take on my grandmother’s recipe (she always used lots of butter and fully skinned/boned chicken). This is a very quick and simple dish that quick and easy to prepare, with lots of flavor. An alternative version would be to include slices of fresh lemon on the chicken. INGREDIENTS 4 Boneless Breasts of…

Spinach Lasagna

This is a healthier take on another classic dish. I’ve started working with the “no boil” lasagna noodles because I find it a lot easier to place them in the casserole dish than pre-cooked noodles. You can take this one step further and make your own marinara sauce, but I like to keep my recipes…
