Jiggly Cheesecake

Jiggly Cheesecake (CarbWarsCookbooks.com)

My low-carb, stovetop version of Japanese Jiggly Cheesecake is much less tedious and it gets its jiggle in a totally different way, but it jiggles just the same!

RASPBERRY FROZEN YOGURT

A delicious frozen treat that can be ready in an flash! Sugar-free and low-carb. Three years ago we planted three dwarf, thornless raspberry bushes. They were a new variety called Raspberry Shortcake™. We had a lot of rain this spring and the bushes exploded with big, sweet berries. We have eaten a lot more than we should have, given them…

NO BAKE LEMON MINI TARTS: SUGAR-FREE, GLUTEN-FREE, EGG-FREE

Lemon Tarts by Judy Barnes Baker

Note: This is the new and improved version of this recipe. Some of you reported that you had trouble using it as written. I have tested it multiple times now and decided to put up an easier version.

Try my walnut trick to keep the cooking odors from permeating the house and to make the rutabagas taste more like potatoes. (Technically,…

MY FAVORITE FLATBREAD: GLUTEN-FREE, GRAIN-FREE, DAIRY-FREE, EGG-FREE PITAS

I was trying to make egg-free, almond-free tortillas that I could eat with my newly discovered allergies, but I was pleasantly surprised with this recipe. They turned out to be thicker and softer than a tortilla and more like pita bread (except that they don’t separate to form a pocket). I made mine with cashew and coconut flour and a mixture…

WHITE CHOCOLATE PECAN BARK

    I made low-carb Christmas cookies for my husband but I’m still on an elimination diet trying to figure out what I’m allergic to. Chocolate, dairy, almonds, eggs, gluten, sugar, and foods that are high in Chromium (which includes almost everything, animal, vegetable, and mineral!) are off limits for now. This is the most innocent treat I could come…

THE PUDDING OF HAPPINESS

Pudding Cups Judy Barnes Baker

My husband counts the pills I put out for him in the morning to be sure I didn’t sneak in anything new. If he doesn’t recognize one, I have to show him the bottle. Once, when my children were small, I overheard my vegetable-phobic son whisper to his sister, “Don’t eat the spaghetti~she put PARSLEY in it!” The only foolproof way I’ve discovered to…
