I have been dying to make pizza with the dough recipe that I used to make the mushroom pinwheels and tonight was the night! I made pizza Stromboli!
I’ve tried quite a few recipes for buns since I have been eating low-carb, and while they have usually been fairly good, none can compete with these!
Usually I end up with a pretty good bun but they have always been more eggy tasting than bread tasting. This recipe is awesome, the end result is the closest to a bun I have tried so far.
The recipe makes a single bun, which is great for me as no-one else in my family will eat my low-carb creations, except Chloe, from time to time.
I haven’t posted anything in a while but that’s because I haven’t made anything worth writing about 🙂 Been cooking my favourites, anything quick and easy, mainly because I have been knitting up a storm…..Christmas is almost here and I have so many projects on the go!
Chloe cooked supper for us tonight. She made Thai style stuffed peppers, using mushrooms, onions, baby spinach and baby kale greens, red Thai chili peppers, cheese and coconut milk.
She served that with a green salad featuring haloumi cheese, blueberries and avocado…..yum, I really enjoyed supper tonight!
Tonight was baking night 🙂 I tried a couple muffin recipes from my Wheat Belly cookbook. These are sooo good! Light, fluffy, airy, and totally delicious! I made coconut-chocolate and blueberry. I must say I did prefer the blueberry but it was a close call.
Here are the recipes.
I stumbled upon a recipe for pinwheels tonight while browsing Pinterest looking for something bready that I could use for work lunch. The original recipe uses sausage but being a vegetarian, I thought I would try it out using mushrooms. End result was awesome! I think this is going to be perfect for pizza bases as well! I really liked it as they turned out crispy just like a traditional recipe using wheat flour would.
I love fall..everywhere I look I see beautiful autumn colours, temperatures are down to around 2-7 degrees celcius and I feel so energized! I have so much that I want to do but sadly, there are not enough hours in a day to do it all. Woke up bright and early and enjoyed a cup of decaf! Since eating low-carb I find I can’t drink regular coffee. It gives me the jitters, makes my pulse race and I feel just awful.
Dinner tonight was ratatouille. So good! I love one pot meals, they are quick, easy, and for me, the ultimate comfort food!
Tonight I decided to try out a new recipe I found for pizza with a cauliflower base. I’ve made a couple variations of cauliflower bases before but can’t say I have been totally happy with the end result although they have always been delicious.
I haven’t posted for a while…..life has been a bit chaotic lately! I spent a few days in Edmonton visiting Chelsea…..we had a good time shopping, eating out and organizing her apartment.
Work has been super busy with admin that I had got behind on and also starting winterisation of the yachts. Haven’t really made any exciting dishes lately, seem to be too tired after work to experiment with my meals as well as cooking for the carnivores 🙂
A few nights ago I made zucchini pasta using my spiralizer, served with a puttanesca sauce.
I bought a spiralizer a while ago but hadn’t got around to using it yet. I went grocery shopping today and decided to test it out on some zucchini. Here is a pic of the spiralizer Continue reading
