We were invited to a friends house for dinner and to watch the Toronto Blue Jays team lose yet again. Boo Hoo. I had some time that afternoon so I whipped up a batch of these tasty little guys. These low carb (3g net) little bites are easy to make and [...]
This scalloped potato recipe was an instant hit. I used Lancashire White Cheese instead of the cheeses listed and it was great. Use any cheese that strikes your fancy. A great opportunity to try something new. There are 19.6g net carbs, 6.1g protein and 9 Weight Watchers points per serving.
Potato pancakes or Latkas are a favourtie in our house but as everyone knows potatoes are very high in carbs and calories. Swap out the high carb potatoes for low carb cauliflower and you have a great low carb dinner. Be sure when you are draining the cauliflower that you [...]

I am all for fast and nutritious when it comes to days that are non-stop. Today was no different. It was the first day of March Break and it was go, go, go from the second I opened my eyes and it still hasn't stopped. I knew how ever that [...]
I make many curry dishes but this is the first green curry I have made and it was a hit! Its has subtle hints of coconut milk and spice. A co-worker a while back gave me the basics of making a good green curry and it was the best suggestion [...]
