Bread Machine-White Bread (Dairy-Free)

1.Place water, sugar, salt, oil, bread flour and yeast into pan of bread machine.
2.Bake on White Bread setting. Cool on wire racks before slicing.

Vegetable Soup

This quick-cooking soup is incredibly versatile. Use whatever vegetables are in season, look best at the market, or are your favorites. Add a side of protein such as grilled shrimp or sliced turkey.

Chicken Chowder

Rich and creamy chowder is too good to limit only to clams or fish. Chicken and cauliflower stand in for traditional clams and potatoes in our tasty rendition of the New England classic.

Low-Carb Chocolate Mousse

This mousse is such a rich, intense chocolate hit that you'll probably be satisfied with a small amount. It is a sugar-free version of a traditional chocolate mousse, which includes raw eggs. If you can't find pasteurized eggs or don't want to chance it, you can try this no-egg version, which is fluffier and not so much like a "real" silky mousse, but is still a chocolatey dessert.

Lemon Cheesecake (Low Carb)

Lemon is one of the most popular cheesecake varieties. I think it's because the acid of the lemon cuts through some of the richness of the cream cheese. The key is to get "the right amount" of lemony flavor without it being sour. One trick is to use lemon zest (the yellow part of the lemon peel), which has a lot of lemon flavor and negligible carbs. I like using a microplane grater, which makes it easy to remove the zest without getting the bitter white pith beneath.

Chicken with Rosemary Roasted Vegetables

Rosemary is delicious paired with chicken, but use it sparingly because it has a very strong flavor and aroma.

Stir-Fried Shrimp with Mushrooms

A quick and easy stir-fry is a perfect weekday supper. In this recipe you can substitute an equal amount of sliced chicken breast for the shrimp.

Florentine Style Porterhouse with Roasted Asparagus

This is bistecca fiorentina, one of Italy’s most famous beef dishes. Like all simple dishes it benefits from choosing the best ingredients: Buy aged steak if you can (its flavor is deeper and it shrinks less in cooking) and use a good-quality, fruity, olive oil; coarse sea salt is an integral part of this dish, but if you don’t have it, use kosher salt or about half as much regular table salt.

Turkey Cobb Salad

This beautiful salad makes an outstanding light dinner or special lunch. Use your imagination to create your own combinations: Substitute a couple handfuls of sliced pitted black olives for the avocado, use goat or feta cheese in place of blue cheese, or even try grilled, diced steak in lieu of the turkey.

Cheddar Scrambled Eggs

Try jalapeños, roasted red peppers, fresh herbs, mushrooms, tomatoes, or bacon and ham as a variation on this basic recipe.
