alfredo sauce - you let it simmer for half an hour and it reduces & thickens:

 

 

makin MCS' choc chip cookies for the first time - the dough tastes good, however i am not a fan of the erythritol so next time i may use all splenda or a mix of splenda/stevia - i was concerned as it seemed dry but as the cold butter whipped in, it did just fine - they are cooking now:

alright - cookies are pretty good - teenager likes em too - hubs and lil guy aren't home yet, so we'll see what they think when they get home - they cooked a lil brown on the edges so i cooked them at 350 for 10 mins then 325 for another 10

 

 

the gnocchi is very delicate - it is wanting to fall apart in the alfredo sauce but that's no biggie - however, the texture is squishy ( well duh, it's cheese) so i don't know how much of it i can actually eat - prob not much cause i'll be weirded out by the texture - oy!!

 

i have eaten THREE of the cookies so far!!

*gasps*

 

and my kitchen looks like a certified DISASTER area!! gonna take me a while to clean this all up - lol

so i made another pumpkin pie yesterday - yummy, right?

well i never tested my BG last week when i ate it - just *assumed* i'd be okay with it based on the ingredients & net carbs - well..............tested yesterday and i spiked 37 pts - went from 94 to 131 one hr later - then to 110 2 hrs later - but i did have a TON of sf cool whip on top so i don't know if it was the pie or the cool whip that was the culprit - guess it could've been a combo of both

 

so of course today i will test again but only have a teensy spoonful of the cool whip (yeah, i'd rather it be the reddi whip but cool whip is all i have in the house right now)

 

i'm also gonna make another cheesecake today - THAT i'm good with - no bad spikes from it

OMG, you make me so hungry! I cannot have so much yummy stuff around, or I eat too much, even if my BG is fine. I make the same sort of mess, lol.

 

I love your kitchen.

thx michele!

 

i did a test with the pie this morning - had a regular size slice but only a small spoonful of cool whip - before i ate it i was 107 (coffee pushed me from my 92 morning fasting reading to this number) and 1 hr later i am 116

 

whew! good to know it was most likely NOT my pie, but the cool whip that spiked me so bad yesterday

 

:D

today i am making strawberry ice cream - it is chillin in the fridge ATM and soon i'll pour it into the ice cream maker and voila! yumminess (i hope)

 

also am making the zucchini 'pasta' again tonight - the sauce is cooked up and in the crock pot keepin warm - there was A LOTTTTT of liquid from the 'chini last time so this time i spread my 'noodles' onto cookie sheets lined with paper towels and salted them good - then i've tried to 'dry' or sop up as much WET as i can out of them and instead of steaming them i'm gonna kinda dry cook em - maybe with a lil olive oil for a few mins before puttin sauce on 'em

 

am gonna look for a biscuit recipe using almond flour so i can make the Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits - or something similar - if i can't find a usable recipe then i'll just make them gluten free for the fam - i won't be able to eat them, but hopefully they will enjoy (and without the nasty wheat)

 

ANDDDDD, i wanna make a chocolate cheesecake - i'm assuming i can use the recipe i used last time and just add, what, a 1/3 cup cocoa? gotta check on that - thought that would be a nice lil change - will also put cocoa into the crust

 

 

mmmmmm

:D

OMG!! so i kinda sorta followed a recipe but kinda also did my own thang - made the crust using almond flour, chopped pecans, splenda/stevia in equal amounts, unsweetened cocoa pwder and paula dean's favorite ingredient.....BUTTA!! cooked it for 5 mins at 350 - oh yeah, it smelled goooood

 

 

 

 

 

for the cheesecake, i used a hershey's recipe on an old card i found in my cookbook - but also then added a lil heavy whipping cream to it and a lil bit extra cocoa - OHHH EMMM GEEEE was it hella good!!

 

 

 

nom nom nom:

here's what i did..

 

crust:

1 1/4 cups almond flour

3/4 cup chopped pecans

3 big TBsps of splenda/stevia blend

2 BIG TBsps of unsweetened cocoa

1 stick plus a couple TBsp more of melted butter

mix together and bake 6 mins at 350 degrees

 

filling:

3 - 8oz pkgs cream cheese - room temp

1 cup sour cream (could sub plain greek yogurt if you wanted) - room temp

3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa

2 tsp vanilla

3 eggs - room temp

1/2 tsp guar gum

1/4 cup heavy whipping cream - room temp

1 1/4 cups splenda/stevia

 

mix whip cream cheese til fluffy and add sweetener - mix well. add sour cream or yogurt and vanilla - beat in cocoa and guar gum then beat in eggs, one at a time - add whipping cream, blend - pour into crust

 

if cooking in toaster oven (this is what i did) no water bath is needed - if cooking in regular oven i always put a large baking dish full of hot water on rack under cheesecake - totally up to you

 

cook at 400 degrees for 10 mins then turn down to 200 degrees and cook for an additional 70 mins - do not open oven door and allow it to sit in turned off oven for an additional hour - let cool on counter until able to cover and put in fridge
