This recipe is based on one I found over at 24/7 Low Carb Diner.
I used Almond Butter because I had it on hand and I didn’t want to wait for it to bake since my bacon was already done and I was wanting a BLT!
So I cooked it in the waffle iron. It is a very substantial bread and has great texture.
Here’s my yummy BLT!
Do not wait! Make this today if you’re needing some bread. It is absolutely great!
Follow the 24/7 Low Carb Diner recipe and bake it in a loaf pan or cook it up like waffles if you can’t wait!
Cheesy Roasted Cauliflower with Bacon
1 head of cauliflower
6 tablespoons butter, melted
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
1/2 shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup real bacon pieces
1 tablespoon minced or powdered garlic
salt and pepper to taste
Rinse the cauliflower and cut into bite-sized pieces. Place in an 8 x 8 baking dish. In a small bowl, mix the melted butter and seasonings; pour over the cauliflower. Sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese and real bacon pieces.
Bake at 425º about 25-30 minutes, stirring the cauliflower every 10 minutes. Roast until it is browned on the edges and fork tender. Sprinkle with the shredded cheddar and return to the oven for 5 minutes or until melted.
Serve as a side dish with your favorite meat.
When the desire for something warm, chocolaty and sweet hits me, I usually want it homemade.
My family likes the individual Molten Chocolate Cakes I make for them. So do I! But…I don’t need the sugar, so I set about making something similar for myself.
I checked to see what ingredients I had on hand and this is what I came up with. I had no idea if this would work without flour or an egg, but guess what?! It did!
It’s actually very yummy, especially with a little sugar free ice cream on top. The individual serving size is just the right amount for a single serving. It satisfies and when its gone…it’s gone.
On hand I had cream, cocoa, granulated Splenda, unsweetened coconut and vanilla.
In a small cup, I mixed about 1/3 cup of heavy whipping cream and 2-3 teaspoons of cocoa together. It became mousse-like. I added Splenda to taste and about a tablespoon of unsweetened coconut. I know this all sounds kinda weird, but it worked for me! lol
I lightly buttered my little baking dish and spread the mixture on the bottom and a little up the sides.
I put it in a 400º toaster oven for about 15 minutes. The crust on top looked just like a brownie! And inside it was all gooey. Yum-yum!
See all that warm, gooey, yumminess!
Once again I’ve found myself super busy. It’s rush season in the screen printing business, so that means it’s harder to post. It’s even harder to take a decent lunch hour! lol
Anyway, maybe I’m being too impatient. Common sense told me I probably wouldn’t lose more than my first Induction 10 years ago, when I lost 7 lbs.
Maybe I should be happy that I’ve lost 6.5, but it is a little disappointing after all my effort. I’d love to lose 10-15 lbs in 4 weeks. Hopefully that will be doable.
Here’s my Sunday dinner and dessert. Both are supposed to be Induction Friendly. The cake is something I won’t have often. I wasn’t overly impressed with it and think I prefer my *Baked Fudge.

*My Baked Fudge is a recipe that I threw together one evening several months ago when I wanted a sugar free warm chocolaty treat. I will be sharing the very easy recipe real soon.
Storms And Rainbows
by Ruth Warren
Storm clouds gather in a cobalt sky
Beneath a far-away world, gazing high
Embracing power of nature’s force
Commence a journey of ancient course
Whipping winds cleanse the deepening doubt
Assembled force from within, without
Darkness surrounding gathering light
Face assaulted by blustering bite
Arms raised high in a soulful appeal
Summoning strength long thought unreal
Undisturbed, the storm passes by
Quiet electric a new heart held high
In crystal clarity, sublimely calm
Silently praised with cherished alms
Arched in beauty, promises new
Rainbow emerges in precious dew
Unvoiced praise escapes without a sound
Untold joys of inner peace abound
Timeless harmony one could only know
Of tempest storms and peaceful rainbow.
