don't worry ~ i got this

Recommended Posts

Java

did an experiment last night with dumplins - they actually turned out good and the fam was happy with them - i made the filling for chicken pot pie, put it in a big cast iron skillet on top of stove, dropped dumplins around then kept covered on low for 20 mins - this was a mistake as it the chicken/gravy mixture stick to bottom of pan - i should have doubled the gravy portion and baked it in oven instead - live & learn :)

 

pie filling:

1/3 cup butter

1/3 cup flour (i used oat flour)

1/3 cup chopped onion

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp pepper

1/8-1/4 tsp thyme

1/8 tsp poultry seasoning

1 3/4 cups chicken broth

2/3 cup milk

2 cups chicken

peas & carrots if you like that (we don't so i do not use them)

 

cook onion in butter til tender then add flour and spices - cook til thickened and bubbly then add broth and milk - when thick and warm, pour over cooked chicken

 

dumplins:

2 cups flour (i used equal amounts of oat flour, almond flour & plain protein booster)

1 tsp salt

4 tsps baking powder

1/4 tsp pepper

1 egg, well beaten

2 TBsp melted butter

2/3 cup milk

 

mix dry ingredients then add beaten egg, melted butter & milk - mix well then drop by spoonfuls into chicken mixture (or into boiling broth if you are doing a soup style dish) - cover and cook for 20 mins or so

 

my rough estimate is that this had around 18 carbs per serving - this is based on splitting it into four servings

 

it only raised my BG 1 point one hr ppd

tonight = coleslaw, fried kielbasa & onions and homemade tortillas

 

not sure if or how the tortillas will turn out - never made them before and i'm using oat flour & almond flour - prob turn out wonky, but we'll see - i have LC store bought ones if they tank - lol

 

dough:

 

 

kielbasa:

 

 

coleslaw:

 

 

i have to let the dough rest a few more mins before i can roll it out and cook it - i'll be back later to report :)

aww thanks! well the tortilla was a complete FAILURE - using oat and almond flour does NOT work - LOL

 

my ice cream maker came in so i'm gonna wash the bowl and stick it in the freezer and make vanilla ice cream tomorrow

:)

just took my pumpkin pie out of the oven a few mins ago - man does our house smell goooooood!! i used the coconut pecan crust posted earlier in this thread and just used the recipe on the libby's pumpkin can - instead of sugar i used a mix of splenda & stevia

 

if i figured the numbers correctly, cut into 8 pieces, each piece has approx 18.5 carbs & 11.1 grams of fiber - i count 'net' carbs, personally, but whatevva works for you

:D

 

 

 

 

 

guess since the exposed crust toasted too long, we'll just cut that part off

 

i'm gonna make homemade vanilla ice cream later today as well

i mixed together the ingredients for the ice cream and it has to sit in fridge for a couple of hours so while it sits i decided to shred my zucchini into 'pasta' strips for tonight - this is my first time using this lil gadget and OMG, i was squealin like a piggie on a farm! love this gadget - now just hope the 'pasta' is family approved - we'll see when i feed it to the fam tonight. gonna make a meat sauce for it and keep it warm in the crockpot til dinner time and then i'll gently steam the 'pasta' before adding it to the sauce

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

yes, i peeled them first to make them look more like pasta

 

:D

ice cream is done - turned out pretty good, i'd say - was my first time ever making it - just used the simple vanilla recipe that came with the book - it tasted too strong of stevia with an aftertaste so i will have to tweak that a bit to find what works better - maybe just using less, or may use a mix of stevia with either splenda or erythritol - i think it'll be nice on the pumpkin pie though :)

 

while it mixed:

 

 

all done:

For thankgiving, I made ginger ice cream to put on the pumpkin pie. (just made a vanilla recipe, and sweetened it with Torani "gingerbread" syrup)

MMMMMMMMMMMMM

Haven't pulled out the ice cream maker in a while.... maybe it's time!

hey now! i don't have any superhuman abilities, silly woman!

OK... other than the spiral slicer (which apparently I am the only person in the world who can't use!), I could make almost any of the recipes you've posted.

In fact, I *have* made some of them (or similar variations)

But they aren't anywhere near as pretty AND I think I'm capable of about 1 baking experiment every 2-3 months. NOT multiples in a day!!!!

Frankly, the McGriddle things that MCS posted were fabulous. But while I got all the ingredients and tools, it would have been weeks or MONTHS before I actually made them (thankfully, my SO is a great cook and loves a challenge)

 

So... I stand by my "superhuman" comment, and you're just going to have to accept it. :T

mmmm mmmmm mmmmmm Do you think they would work as waffles with a little oil added?

Thanks for the info on where to find them...I missed that post.

recipe calls for 1 tsp of oil, if i remember correctly - and yes, i'm sure they would - just mix it til you get the consistency you want - hubs wants me to try that for him but we have a DEEEEEP waffle maker so i'd prob have to dbl the recipe to fill it up good

 

good luck!

OK... in the off-chance I can leave another "baking challenge" for my SO -- what whey powder did you use for the pancakes?
