These have been a favorite of our family's for years. Anyone I make it for raves about them and it is so easy to make!

Mock Mashed Potatoes using Cauliflower

I've adapted a few recipes to make this version. You can also mix in bacon, green onions, or add roasted garlic to make a garlic mashed potato version. If you want a delicious creamy soup base, thin it out with a bit of cream until desired consistency.

Low Carb Blueberry Muffins

I've adapted this from a few different recipes. These came out light and fluffy and surprisingly good.

Low Carb Cheesecake Muffins

These are great for breakfast or as a treat. Only 3 carbs per muffin

Low Carb Double Layer Pumpkin Cheesecake Muffins with toasted Almond Crust

Pumpkin adds a few extra carbs, but it is a nice treat now and then. May tweak this a bit more to get the carb count down a bit.

Cranberry Spinach Salad

This is delicious! Original Recipe found at http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Jamies-Cranbe
rry-Spinach-Salad/Detail.aspx. I may add some feta cheese next time to bulk up the protein a bit. I also changed the sugar to splenda since I'm low-carbing. Other low carb dieters may want to cut the cranberries in half.

Shrimp Scampi Bake

Ok, so this isn't for the low fat dieters obviously, but it is awesome for the low carb dieters! I'm going to try serving this over mock cauliflower rice http://lowcarbdiets.about.com/od/lowcarbsi
dedishes/r/caulirice.htm or tofu shirataki noodles.

Asian Salmon

Great Asian Salmon recipe I originally found at http://sushifabush.tumblr.com/post/1213960

r-fried-rice

Has a bit of sugar so can be a bit carby, but still a tasty option.

Low Carb Mexican "Rice"

Like the fried rice, this is made with shredded cauliflower and tastes very much like spanish/mexican rice. Goes great with the Chili Relleno Casserole

This heated up fine the next day, but not sure it would last too much longer than that.

Chili Relleno Casserole

Easy, Yummy and low carb. If you want to reduce the carb count, reduce the amount of chili's you use by half. I've made it both ways and it tastes fine either way

Ugly Green Bean Snack

These are all the rage on various low carb forums. I made them last night and was really pleased with them as a substitute for french fries. Cook them until they are somewhat crispy on the outside. They may blacken a bit, you don't want them to burn though.
