New Recipe: Skillet Cauliflower Gratin

SKILLET CAULIFLOWER GRATIN

I made this side dish today to go with a pork roast and it's wonderful. It's comforting and delicious and it isn't pretending to be potatoes or anything other than what it is. You'll find the recipe on my website HERE.

Product Review - Low Carb Cheezy Crackers - Fresh Baked


I didn't think that I liked these when I first tried them. They have a somewhat hard, grainy texture with only a subtle flavor of cheese. They also don't have a lot of salt in them and really don't have much flavor at all. After eating them a few more times, I've decided that they actually make a great snack because they don't make you want to eat more and more of them like traditional high carb snacks do. Just a couple of small pieces make a satisfying snack.

They come in very large pieces that you can break up into whatever size "crackers" you like. I kind of like that idea but I think they would look nicer if they were in little squares for serving them at a party. On the other hand, they're not really the sort of thing that I'd serve for company. I would treat them more like trail mix or granola bars and reserve them for times when I might need to take a little snack along with me. They taste more like "health food" than snacky junk food, if you know what I mean. I think that the cheese is what makes them more tasty than something like those hard dry Wasa crisps that I ate when I was on a low fat diet (cardboard comes to mind). These are more like a crispbread kind of thing though than true crackers. Click HERE to buy this product from LC-Foods.

Two more new CARBmaster Flavors

Today I found the lemon CARBmaster yogurt at Kroger and they also had another new flavor called Pineapple Coconut. I'm eating the lemon one as I type this and I haven't decided yet if I like it or not. My first impression was that it tasted like lemon meringue pie filling but then I started getting a sort of artificial aftertaste. You know how lemon flavored things can sometimes taste a bit like the smell of household cleaners? That's not such a good thing.

I haven't tried the Pineapple Coconut yet and I think that I will like that one better.
