This is a collaborative effort between low-carbing friends and thus the name, "Low-Carbing Among Friends".  Those were giddy days as we were a big fish in a small pond and now it is just the other way around. Nowadays we are competing against thousands of low-carb cookbooks and many Kindle cookbooks are being given away for free.  However, I believe in our cookbooks and I love using them myself, and I hope others, too, will still get to enjoy them for many years to come!

This is a very large cookbook with 296 pages.  If you even buy 1 cookbook, I would recommend one like this because you have a huge variety to choose from and from different authors as well.  The book has been through 3 Editions (revisions).  The recipes are sorted by category with each author contributing recipes.  The recipes range from very low-carb (below 5 grams of carbs) to below 10 grams of carbs per serving. and it is safe to say most recipes are below 5 grams of carbs per serving.  The recipes are also all gluten-free.

Several glossy color pages of photos are in the center of the cookbook to inspire you to cook or bake something delicious for your family.  For photos you can look at right now, go to amongfriends.us and look under Recipes for the photos inside each cookbook.  The Addendum category with the Indices is out-of-date.  The Index of the 3rd edition is much easier to navigate than what we originally had in the first edition of this cookbook which came out November 11th, 2011.  The 3rd edition (revised) came out in November, 2015.

The Introduction is by George Stella and there is a comprehensive Helpful Hints section with useful measurements' guide for liquid sweeteners such as sucralose and stevia.  Even I refer back to this guide from time to time.  Super useful to have in the kitchen in your LCAF's low-carb cookbook!  Several doctors wrote articles for this cookbook: The Diet Doctor (Andres Eenfeldt), Dr. Parker, Dr. Robert Su and Dr. John Briffa.

The Index is very comprehensive; by category and by alphabet.  It is fairly easy to navigate as if you are looking for a baked item, for instance, you would peruse the Breads, Muffins and More category.  The sub-categories will further help you to quickly find the recipe you desire.

Also, in this cookbook are featured several great recipes from our low-carb friends.

BACON CHEESEBURGER SOUP

 




BACON CHEESEBURGER SOUP

A lovely rich, comforting soup that has all the flavors of a Bacon Cheeseburger in soup form.  This is a satisfying meal.  Two bowls of this satisfying soup and you won’t be hungry for many hours!


4 strips bacon, cooked, cut into small pieces

  (reserve some of the bacon fat)

1 medium onion, chopped

1 small green pepper, chopped

2 tsp minced garlic (10 mL)

1 lb lean ground beef (0.45 kg)

1/2 tsp salt (2 mL)

1/2 tsp black pepper (2 mL)

1 tsp Arrowroot powder, OR cornstarch (5 mL)

4 cups chicken stock,* OR beef stock (1 L)

1 cup heavy cream (250 mL)

2 cups grated sharp Cheddar cheese (500 mL)

Garnish:

1 Roma Tomato, sliced

Extra grated Cheddar cheese

Cooked bacon bits

 

In nonstick, deep pot in bacon fat, and over medium heat, cook onion and green pepper until soft.  Add garlic and cook 2 minutes.  Take pot off heat and set aside on another burner. 

In nonstick frying pan, cook ground beef until browned, adding salt and pepper.  Add beef to the vegetables along with Arrowroot powder, OR cornstarch.  Slowly stir in chicken stock, OR beef stock and heavy cream.  Stir in Cheddar cheese.  Bring to the boil and reduce heat, letting the soup continue to boil for 10 minutes.  Serve with a small heap of grated Cheddar cheese on top along with a slice or two of tomato and a generous sprinkling of cooked bacon pieces. 

Helpful Hints: *I used homemade chicken stock which is not too salty, so I actually used 1 tsp (5 mL) salt in the ground beef; however, if you are using commercial chicken, OR beef stock, use half that amount.  I make my chicken stock in the slow-cooker using the carcass of a rotisserie chicken.  Add water to cover, 1 tsp (5 mL) salt, 1 tsp (5 mL) dried parsley, 1/2 tsp (2 mL) black pepper and 1 chopped carrot.  Set the slow-cooker to high for 4 hours or cook overnight. Strain using a colander.  Allow to cool and refrigerate or freeze the stock.

First printing was in September, 2018. This is the second in a series of two cookbooks with Peggy Hardaway as the principal author with some great recipes from George Stella and I as well. Again there is an introduction and preamble by George Stella as well as a Helpful Hints section.    Pretty silver/platinum cookbook with matching coil binding.  These five colorful cookbooks with their equally colorful and substantial pages of recipe photos are fun to own, easy to navigate, fun to read, and I'm sure you will love owning them.  I know even I am happy to have them and refer to them often. There are about 65 color PHOTOS!!  As with all of the cookbooks, each recipe that has a photo will have it indicated in the heading next to the name of the author whose recipe it is and, in addition, each photo has the page number indicated on it.  With all of the cookbooks, I am the one who edits them and lovingly puts the cookbooks together.  I take my job very seriously and always do my best to produce an accurate and quality job!  I was taught initially by publishers who published a couple of my cookbooks - one of them was published by the largest publisher in Canada at the time (now taken over by an American company), MacMillan Canada.  I soon figured out that I wanted to get into self-publishing.  Now, of course, we are competing with thousands of other low-carb cookbooks out there and it is more and more difficult to make a living in this field.  Our trusted brand does set us apart and we are proud to have such creative people on the Low-Carbing Among Friends' team, not the least of which is renowned low-carb chef and TV celebrity, George Stella!

Peggy Hardaway has devoted many years to creating wonderful recipes that the low-carb community has enjoyed.  You can find her recipes at Buttoni's Low-Carb Recipes.  Peggy, also a teacher by profession, has happily retired with various other interests that keep her occupied, but she still keeps her hand in and posts new recipes to her blog as she makes them.  As well, she participates in Low-carb Forums helping newbies and others.  Peggy has her very own style and often makes ethnic foods that we might be afraid to tackle, however, she makes them look easy!  She also has many of her very own homemade spice blends (many of which mimic commercial varieties), 5 of which you will find in this cookbook (such as Shawarma Spice Blend, Ranch Dressing Powder Blend and Garam Masala Spice Blend), with the recipes for you to make your own, if you so desire.  Peggy knows the art of very flavorful cooking!

When Peggy was actively working on the team for a few years on Facebook, Peggy and I would often reach millions with our recipes.  Peggy and I would have a friendly rivalry going on with our daily posts and those were such fun days.  We were very supportive of each other, however, and stood by each other when others tried their best to topple our team or compromise our success. That happened fairly frequently and it hurt sometimes, but we picked ourselves up and carried on!  It is hard to believe sometimes but it did all happen.  We were top of the low-carb world on Facebook for 5 plus years and thus we didn't make everyone happy as it is such a competitive business.  It was only when we stopped paying Facebook for 2 years that another lady who was paying Facebook a lot caught up to us in time.  Lovely lady and none of us begrudge her that success.  We pay a little bit these days but the majority of our likes which with our two combined pages is over 1.1 million were from the good old days - mostly organic likes - save for about 10,000 likes which were paid likes (well, not entirely - our organic likes finally given to us).  Even although we pay Facebook a bit these days, we still only get a fraction of our organic likes added.  One has to pay lot to get them all.  I miss the good old days, but nothing stays the same forever and one day I will retire and, thus, I put things in perspective.  Life is not all about social media!  However, that said we are still the top low-carb team on Facebook.

LIGHTLY “FLOURED” FISH IN CREAMY GARLIC BUTTER SAUCE

 



LIGHTLY “FLOURED” FISH IN CREAMY GARLIC BUTTER SAUCE

This is an amazing fish dinner – restaurant quality good and so easy to make!  The third fish fillet is a little small.....shh that is because I had to do a little taste test.  Very good!


3 fish fillets (1 lb; 0.45 kg)

2 tbsp Gluten-Free Bake Mix 2, OR almond flour (30 mL)

2 tbsp Parmesan cheese (30 mL)

  (the kind in a canister)

1/4 tsp salt (1 mL)

1/8 tsp black pepper (0.5 mL)

3 tbsp olive oil, OR more (45 mL)

Creamy Garlic Butter Sauce:

2 tbsp butter (30 mL)

1 tbsp minced garlic (15 mL)

1/2 cup chicken stock (125 mL)

1/4 cup heavy cream (60 mL)

1 tsp lemon juice (5 mL)

Garnish:

Chopped parsley, OR cilantro

 

Rinse and pat fish fillets dry with paper towels.  

In small bowl, combine Gluten-Free Bake Mix 2, OR almond flour, Parmesan cheese, salt and black pepper. 

In large frying pan, in olive oil and over medium high heat, cook fish fillets about 4 to 5 minutes on both sides.  I tend to keep turning the fillets to prevent burning the breading.  

Creamy Garlic Butter Sauce:  While the fish is cooking in another frying pan, melt butter.  Add garlic and cook 2 minutes.  Add chicken stock, heavy cream and lemon juice.  Cook until thickened and bubbly.  Add cooked fish to the sauce and heat all gently 1 minute.  Serve garnished with chopped parsley, OR cilantro.

2 tsp minced garlic (10 mL)

1/2 tsp seasoning salt (2 mL)

That happened fairly frequently and it hurt sometimes, but we picked ourselves up and carried on!  It is hard to believe sometimes but it did all happen.  We were top of the low-carb world on Facebook for 5 plus years and thus we didn't make everyone happy as it is such a competitive business.  It was only when we stopped paying Facebook for 2 years that another lady who was paying Facebook a lot caught up to us in time.  Lovely lady and none of us begrudge her that success.  We pay a little bit these days but the majority of our likes which with our two combined pages is over 1.1 million were from the good old days - mostly organic likes - save for about 10,000 likes which were paid likes (well, not entirely - our organic likes finally given to us).  Even although we pay Facebook a bit these days, we still only get a fraction of our organic likes added.  One has to pay lot to get them all.  I miss the good old days, but nothing stays the same forever and one day I will retire and, thus, I put things in perspective.  Life is not all about social media!  However, that said we are still the top low-carb team on Facebook and this weekend when my husband adds up the numbers, it will be very clear that we are as a team still number one on Facebook.
