I lke to make these with a little extra baking soda and powder and bake until light and fluffy about 10-11 minutes. Store in airtight containers and enjoy with cup of coffee to tea or a wonderful sweet and spicy hot snack!

Very Good (3 ratings)
Baked Beans by Tamera

These are great as a side dish or main course! I love them as in between meal snacks as they are satisfying and filling. Everyone raves about this dish when I serve it!

Cashew Cream (replaces half and half)

This is for coffee creamer or to use as cream substitute in cream soups. This is also good for tea or coffee latte's. I use 1/4 cup cream in 1 cup to 2 cups of water or coffee.

Banana Walnut Muffins Weight Watchers Recipe Modified Tamera

Put walnuts on top of muffins for a nice crunch! Do not over bake! These are a very satisfying between meal snack or with a salad or a great breakfast.

Capallini with Chicken and Butternut Squash Noodles

Whole 30 Recipe! Do not over cook noodles. Used Green Giant frozen noodles. Can use zucchini noodles instead.

LaMar Baked Fish (WALLEYE PIKE)

Incredibly decadent and easy way to make a satisfying healthy high protein main dish. The silky topping is full of flavor and a perfect complement to fish.

Corn Muffins Katie's Favorite!

Katie loves these muffins. The trick is to not over bake them!!!

Chocolate Fondue for Fruit

This is a lovely decadent dessert for two!

Lemon/Lime Muffins

I love using the egg replacer in this recipe. The muffins turn out nice a fluffy.

Apple Crisp For the dieter

I love apple crisp in the fall when the apples are fresh and juicy. This is one way I can get the dessert without all the sugar and fat. And I still enjoy it so much!

Tamera's Sunshine Fresh Apple Muffins

You can use 3 cups in any combination of carrots and apples. Sometimes I use 3 cups of apples but they do get very soft. I have also used whole wheat flour which makes a dryer muffin. Not as desirable. Store in refrigerator as they are very moist. I freeze them until ready to eat.

Chocolate Souffles

Hard to find a delicious lower carb dessert and this one is certianly a little higher in carbs with 11 per serving but once in a while it's worth it! Low in sugar!
Taken from the Ghiradelli Chocolate Cookbook.

Gimme Quiche Eggs, low carb

Soft, luscious, tasty, low carb, low cal, high protein, power breakfast or lunch. This is a nice change to plain eggs. I often use 3 egg whites or egg substitute instead of the one whole egg.

Tamera's Minestrone Soup

This is a favorite of our family and friends and have shared the recipe often! . Quick, low cal, low carb, low fat and seriously flavorful. No pasta and no beans. If you like it less thick, add only half a large can of sauce.

HCG Phase II Cabbage Casserole

Modified 10-17-11 Used one egg, one egg white, 1 cup plus 2% milk, half cabbage and half spinach, parmesean cheese only, about 1/4 cup. Bake in pie plate like quiche.

Bread Dough Frozen for Individual Servings

2 ounces each equals 122 calories each. I freeze in two ounce servings to use for individual fruit braids or rolls.

HCG Beef and Broccoli with Ginger Sauce

This is a low sodium answer to stirfry and variety on the HCG diet program. Very satisfying and not salty at all.

Diet Creamy Cucumbers

Rather than using sour cream in this recipe I substituted non fat yogurt. Let sit in refrigerator at least an hour. Over night produces even better taste.

Diet Apple Braid low sugar /fat

This is my answer for dessert on Fat loss diet. It combines on serving of my recipe for bread and one serving of fruit. Add any fruit. Apple or Strawberries.

Single-Serving Fresh Bread

I modified the Grissini Recipe so I can use the dough for other things like a fresh baked roll, apple braid or a fresh bread stick. I used less olive oil than the original Grissini Bread stick recipe calls for.


My Grandma's Italian recipe modified to fit the HCG diet is a satisfying meal. A nice big hearty bowl of meatballs and cooked tomatoes together for a really fresh yummy meal.

Guittard or Ghirardelli Chip Gulten Free Cookies

No need to give up anything on gluten-free diet! I love these cookies with the big chocolate chips that Guittard or Ghirardelli offers. They are big on taste and gluten free! I also use mostly organic ingredients when ever possible. These are almost too good!
I recommend freezing the dough and making them fresh each time. Oohh that smell!

Brownies, Gluten-Free

I use organic ingredients from butter to organic gluten free flour. This is wonderfully chocolaty brownie.

Pizza, Gluten-Free on Crispy Tortilla

Crispy tasty pizza for the gluten free diet.

Waffles, Tamera's Best Ever Belgian Waffles!

These are fluffy and tasty. IF YOU WANT TO HALF THIS RECIPE TO 2 - 3 WAFFELS: I found if you half this recipe and substitute the milk with 1/8 cup cream and 1/8 cup cashew milk (water or other milk substitute works too like almond milk etc...) it makes the best ever even better. If you do this cut the flour back to about a half cup.

Minestrone Soup by Tamera, Mom's Best!

Low cal, low fat and delicious.

Eating lower carb does have its challenges. I love the fact that when you are challenged you find recipes and develop flavor combinations that stretch you in a new taste sensation and direction.
