Low Carb Pumpkin Dessert

Low Carb Pumpkin Dessert

Low Carb Pumpkin Dessert

This dessert tastes like pumpkin pie, although it is made without sugar.

Ingredients:
29 ounce can pure pumpkin (not pie filling)
*3 eggs
*3/4 cup Splenda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/4 teaspoon cloves
*3/4 cup heavy cream
16 oz chopped walnuts or pecans (approximate amount)
Whipped Cream

Mix all ingredients very well in bowl or food processor. Pour the mixture into lightly buttered 8 ramekin dishes, approximately 4 to 5 oz each, or into a traditional pie plate. Before baking, sprinkle chopped nuts on the top of each dish. Set the dishes or plate into a metal container with water in it so that the water covers the bottom half of each dish. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 350 degrees for 55 minutes.

Berry Dessert

Berry Dessert

This dessert reminds me of ice-cream.  It’s really good on a hot day. I’m not sure how many carbs are in it, but it can’t be many. I ate this dessert nearly every night while losing 80 lbs.

Ingredients:
1 Cup Frozen Strawberries
1/8 to 1/4 Cup Each of Blueberries, Raspberries
Whipped Cream
Walden Farms Chocolate Syrup
Splenda to taste

Partially thaw berries in microwave oven for approximately 30 seconds. Slice the strawberries and sprinkle all berries with Splenda. Mix throughly. Spoon berries into a parfait glass, alternating with layers of whipped cream. Top with whipped cream and chocolate syrup and serve.

Cottage Cheese

Cottage-Cheese Dessert

Cottage Cheese Dessert

I use this cottage cheese recipe as a dessert.  It’s easy to make and resembles a creamy pudding.

Ingredients:
16 oz. Small-curd cottage cheese
2 tbsp. Sugarless strawberry topping (I use Smucker’s)
2 tbsp. Sugarless vanilla flavoring (I use Torani)
2 tbsp. Splenda

Mix all ingredients together and blend until creamy with a hand-held blender/mixer in a small bowl. Transfer to half-cup dessert cups and chill. This makes a great dessert or snack. Alternate flavorings can also be used for variety.

Julia Child on PBS

The French Chef With Julia Child

The French Chef With Julia Child

Since the movie, Julie and Julia came out, there seems to be a renewed interest in Julia Child and her cooking show, The French Chef, which was on television from 1963 to 1973. I recently saw one of her videos on PBS, Elegance With Eggs. Not only did it bring back memories about watching her show when I was a teenager, but I tried the egg recipe made with cream and cheese, and it was delicious. You can find dvds of her show on the PBS site, which I plan on buying. Most of her recipes can be adapted to the low-carb lifestyle.
