Not sure exactly, so we’ll go with Pimento for this post.
One thing I’m sure of, as a kid I did NOT like Pimento Cheese!
I really didn’t enjoy Pimento Cheese until I was expecting my first daughter. That’s when I began to crave it. I couldn’t get enough of it!
And I have to have it with plain Lays potato chips, just like Mom!
This past Sunday it was cool and rainy. Homemade Chili and Homemade Pimento Cheese sounded like it would hit the spot, so that’s what I made. I made it using Mom’s simple recipe. I even used the potato masher just like she did. It turned out great! If I could have shared it with her, I would.
Mom’s Homemade Pimento Cheese
2 lbs Velveeta
1 large jar of diced pimentos
1/2 cup Kraft mayonaisse
Salt & Pepper
1 tsp sugar (optional – Mom chose not to)
Cut Velveeta into chunks. Place into a large bowl. Add pimentos, mayo, salt & pepper. Using a potato masher, smash the cheese and pimento mixture until well mixed and spreadable. Spread onto sandwich bread. Serve with plain potato chips and a pickle spear, or serve with a bowl of homemade chili on a cool evening. Enjoy!

This is something I’ve read about on more than one occasion lately. Sounds worth a try.
Here’s some information from Look Great-Lose Weight-Save Money.
|“Lemon water is truly beneficial in anybeauty care regimen. Lemon and water both have clarifying actions in your body. Both lemon and water help flush out toxins in your system.
Although lemons are acidic, they are alkalizing in your body.
Most of the foods we eat are very acidic and too much acid can bring about a barrage of health problems. That’s because your body actually prefers to be alkaline. Instead, most people bombard their systems with too many acidic foods and drinks, which have long lasting detrimental effects. That’s why lemons are so important to consume. They help alkalize your blood and your body thanks you!”
“Lemon water helps clean the toxins out of your body. Your skin can’t look healthy if your body is holding onto toxins! When you get rid of toxic waste in your system, your skin will show it first!”
“Lemon can help relieve many digestion problems when mixed with hot water. These include nausea, heartburn, constipation and parasites. It is even known to help relieve hiccups when consumed as a juice. Lemon juice acts as a liver tonic and helps you digest your food by helping your liver produce more bile. It decreases the amount of phlegm produced by your body. It is also thought to help dissolve gallstones.”
“Because of its high Vitamin C content, it is used to prevent and treat many infections, hasten wound healing, and diminish allergies. Lemon juice also relieves symptoms of asthma, tonsillitis, and sore throats.”
“Lemon is a diuretic. This means that lemon water is especially good for people with urinary tract infections.”
Start your engine everyday by drinking a glass of room temperature, lukewarm to warm, lemon water first thing every morning!

I got the idea for this dish from my lovely sister-in-law, Dorothy, in Kentucky.
She’s such a sweetheart to have supper waiting on us when we drag in late at night! Love you, Dorothy!
I don’t think it’s as good as hers, but then food always seems tastier when someone else does all the work! :)

While flipping through an old Valentine issue
of Martha Stewart Magazine, I ran across these not so low carb cupcakes. I know they’re not low carb, but they look too delicious to not share. Maybe there’s a chance one of these could be converted?
I can only dream and hope!
Here’s some of my favorites. . .
Piped Rose Cupcakes
Aren’t they gorgeous?!
Buttermilk Cupcakes in a Jar
What a neat idea!

I made the full size Hummingbird Cake for my daughter’s birthday, at her request. Hopefully I’ll get around to posting pics some day.
So adorable for Fall!
And the list goes on! There are fancy cupcakes, cute cupcakes, and cupcakes for kids.

My Mom’s Coconut Cream Pie was always my favorite.
On a low carb diet, this is the next best thing. It’s not so much like a cream pie, but it sure is good. And easy. That counts a lot.
Blender Coconut Pie
¼ cup butter
¼ t salt
2 t coconut extract (flavoring)
2 t vanilla
½ t baking powder
1 cup unsweetened coconut
2 cups heavy cream
½ cup Splenda
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 9 inch pie pan. Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour into prepared pie pan and bake for approximately 1 hour until top is golden brown and set. Cool. Store in refrigerator overnight to give the “crust” time to better set up. Top with whipped cream prior to serving.
Total net carbs are 31. Each 1/8th of the pie piece has 4 carbs.
Recipe courtesy of the Low Carb Friends Recipe Board. For more reviews and variations of this recipe visit the thread found here on LCF.
