GF Skillet Cornbread

From "ATK How Can it Be Gluten Free" Cookbook
Superior flavor and texture

Tomato and Beef Soup

Loaded with vegetables and gluten free noodles.

egg wash (for french toast)

Use this to calculate the nutritional value of french toast. This recipe is good for 2 slices of bread.

Salisbury Steak (made with Lipton Onion Soup Mix)

Old timey comfort food! This recipe leaves out the canned mushroom soup.

Cube Steak with Pan Gravy (Cook's Country)

Pound the steaks to 1/4 inch thick for even cooking

Cilantro Pesto Chicken with Sweet Chili Sauce

5 ingredients make an out of this world combination! Note: Chicken needs to marinate in the pesto for several hours or overnight. Not all the marinade sticks to the chicken, so nutritional data is overstated.

Gluten Free Irish Soda Bread

Just because you're not eating gluten doesn't mean you have to miss out this St. Patrick's Day! This bread is more like a multi-grain bread, than traditional Irish soda bread.

Strawberry-Kiwi Fool

From Rachael Ray Everyday - Light tasting dessert for the summer. You can also use other seasonal berries instead of kiwi. Nice elegant dessert to make ahead of time and assemble when needed.

Cranberry, Apple, Orange Relish

Great for poultry or on sandwiches

Upstate Ministrone

This goes great with crusty bread on a cold night!

Honey Mustard Glazed Salmon

Delicious salmon recipe for something different.

Tom Ka Gai (Coconut Chicken Soup)

Thai heaven! Add chili oil for an extra kick! If you use regular canned coconut milk, it will triple the calories. Use light coconut milk or a coconut milk beverage.

Wild Rice & Wheat Berry Salad w/ Red Grapes & Ruby Grapefruit Dressing

Posted from Totally addictive! This recipe is a side dish that can become a main dish with the addition of Gorgonzola cheese, feta cheese or cooked chicken.

Granola Bars (from Super Baby Food by Ruth Yaron)

These are a meal replacement bar. Very hearty!

Kale and Feta Salad

Raw Kale? Really? Oh yes, you'll be a believer after you eat this!

Swiss Chard with bacon and onion

Good as a side dish to ham and pork dishes. But we also like it along side our eggs for breakfast.

Blueberry Crisp, Lower Carb

This was in a diabetic cookbook, but I replaced the white flour with stone ground whole wheat and oat flour.


From my son's Hightlights magazine with a few tweeks.

Cauliflower Bisque (vegan)

When I had this at my friend's house, I was certain it had heavy cream in it. To my surprise, she used cashews! And it has only 137 calories in a one cup serving. You won't believe your taste buds!

Tuna salad

old fashioned, like my mom used to make.

Mexican Chicken Tortilla Lasagna

Great use for left over chicken meat.

Coleslaw (KFC copycat)

Got this from recipezaar but took out the sugar.

Turkey vegetable soup

You can use 3 cups of any combination of vegetables. You can add uncooked rice to broth and let cook or you can use noodles. It's very versatile.

Spinach and pine nut quiche

this recipe is from the Whole Foods website, but it calls for potatoes, which I removed.

Strip Steak with peppers, onions and mushrooms

This recipe is served with linguini or rice, but to low carb it, we eat it by itself. Filling and delicious!

Oat Bread

This is the recipe on the back of the Bob's Red Mill Original Rolled Oats with a little tweaking. This is for a bread machine, but you can go to Bob's Red Mill website and get the instructions to make it by hand.

Primal Energy Bar (From Cave Man Diet)

Meal replacement bar, like if you get up late and can't make breakfast.

Mom's Meatloaf with chicken and beef

Traditional meatloaf with chicken and beef. Chicken has a better texture than turkey in this recipe. Comfort food at it's best!

Laura's Flax Focaccia Bread

This bread has 1 net carb. If you use fake sweetner, it has 0 net carbs.

Meat and Veggie Burger (Perfect Weight America)

This is a recipe from the Perfect Weight America website.

Cauliflower-Leek Kugel

This can be made kosher but using matzoh meal. It is low carb and vegetarian if you eat eggs and cheese.
