This cookbook was printed in December, 2012 and later a completely revised edition was brought out in February, 2015.  This cookbook has 6 authors from the Low-Carbing Among Friends' team at the time.  Some of us remain and others have retired from the cookbook business.  It is wonderful to still have their recipes with us in this beautiful cookbook.  George, a professional chef, is a much-loved and a well-known figure in the low-carb world and yearly sells his cookbooks on QVC.  Not only that he used to have his own cooking show on the Food Network TV.  Stacey Crawford has written an amazing new cookbook for the Instant Pot, Peggy Hardaway has 2 LCAF's cookbooks devoted to her recipes.  Kent Altena is an IT expert and a great cook at home; his family-tested recipes are usually very low-carb and easy to follow.  Judy Barnes Baker, famous for Carb Wars and another cookbook has lovely recipes in this cookbook that you will enjoy.  Also, in this cookbook are featured several great recipes from our low-carb friends.  Dr. Parker wrote an article: Low-Carb Research Update and Dr. Su wrote: Why Can Carbohydrates Kill?

MUSHROOMS, CARAMELIZED ONIONS AND BACON

 


MUSHROOMS, CARAMELIZED ONIONS

 AND BACON

Loved this mushroom dish which I made using ingredients I had on hand that day.  It is nice to change up our vegetable recipes from time to time, even if it is simply a lowly mushroom dish.  It makes a difference to keep the sides interesting and thus make one feel happy with one’s low-carb meals. 

Disclaimer: To be fair I did not caramelize the onions for this dish, however, I have typed it up that way as I feel it will add even more flavor to this mushroom side.


1 tbsp olive oil (15 mL)

1 lb mushrooms, sliced (0.45 kg)

1 tsp seasoning salt (5 mL)

1 tbsp olive oil (15 mL)

1 tbsp butter (15 mL)

2 cups chopped onons (500 mL)

1/2 tsp seasoning salt (2 mL)

1/2 tsp black pepper (2 mL)

2 slices bacon, cooked crispy

1/4 cup chopped green onions (60 mL)

 

In large nonstick frying pan, in 1 tbsp (15 mL) olive oil and over medium heat, cook mushrooms until they are turning golden brown. Sprinkle with 1 tsp (5 mL) seasoning salt while the mushrooms are frying.  Set aside. 

In same pan, in 1 tbsp (15 mL) olive oil and in butter, over medium heat, cook onions with 1/2 tsp seasoning salt (2 mL) and black pepper for 15 minutes or until browned, jammy and caramelized. Don't stir too often in the beginning as you want the onions to brown, but towards the end you will need to keep stirring more often. You may need to reduce the heat to medium low.  One trick during cooking is to add a little water to the pan while the onions cook. Add mushrooms back to the skillet and stir fry until warm.  Place in serving dish and top with cripsy bacon and chopped green onions.

MUSHROOM, CHEESY SKILLET CHICKEN

 



MUSHROOM, CHEESY SKILLET CHICKEN

Lightly breaded chicken in a very flavorful creamy mushroom and cheese sauce.  Chicken is tender as can be and couldn’t be easier as all is cooked in one big skillet!

 

2 large chicken breasts

3 tbsp olive oil (45 mL)

Fresh parsley, OR cilantro (optional)

Breading:

1/4 cup Gluten-Free Bake Mix 2, OR almond flour (60 mL)  

2 tbsp Parmesan cheese (30 mL)

  (kind in a canister)

1/2 tsp salt (2 mL)

1/2 tsp black pepper (2 mL)

Cheesy Mushroom Sauce:

1 tbsp olive oil (15 mL)

1 tbsp butter (15 mL)

2 cups sliced mushrooms (500 mL)

1 cup chicken stock (250 mL)

1/2 cup heavy cream (125 mL)

1/2 cup grated Mozzarella/Cheddar cheese mix (125 mL)

 

Cut chicken breasts in half longitudinally, so that you have 4 chicken cutlets. 

Breading: In small bowl, combine Gluten-Free Bake Mix 2, OR almond flour, Parmesan cheese, salt and black pepper.  Dredge chicken on both sides with breading. 

In large nonstick frying pan, in olive oil and over medium heat, cook chicken about 4 minutes per side until not quite cooked throughout.  Set aside.  

Cheesy Mushroom Sauce:  In same frying pan, in olive oil and butter, cook mushrooms until turning brown.  Add chicken stock and chicken.  Cook covered on simmer about 15 minutes.  Remove chicken.  Add heavy cream and cheese.  Cook, stirring until cheese melts.  Add chicken back to pan and heat through.  Garnish with fresh parsley, OR cilantro.

This is the second cookbook in the series, Low-Carbing Among Friends' cookbooks.  It went to 3 printings and revisions.  Helpful Hints again contains a wonderful guide to how much to use of the liquid sweeteners for 2 tsp all the way up to 1 cup. I also use this chart to refer back to occasionally when I am in the kitchen, although by now I mostly do the math in my head.  There is a blurb about a number of different sweeteners and the best whey protein powder to buy.  Dr. Steve Parker wrote an article about Low-Carb Weight Management: Tips, Stalls and Long-term Success.  Dr. Parker is famous for his Low-Carb Mediterranean Diet for people wanting to do a healthy, low-carb regimen and it is also geared towards people with diabetes.  You really want to look him up on the internet and buy his wonderful books.  The Mediterranean diet has been proven to be one of the best diets on the planet and he went to the trouble of making a low-carb version.  Awesome!!

This is another large cookbook with 224 pages and recipes from several authors, including my own son, who is a rather reluctant cook these days as he is a famous science fiction author (he goes by a pen name) and very busy.  His cooking leans slightly more towards gourmet-style cooking.  At the time Jonathan was taking on several jobs, even modeling, just to get by ... before he became famous.  Being a part of our cookbook meant he received royalties, too, all of which helped him to live on his own in the big city.  Also, in this cookbook are featured several great recipes from our low-carb friends.

GARLIC BUTTER SKILLET CHICKEN STRIPS

 





GARLIC BUTTER SKILLET CHICKEN STRIPS

Tender, juicy chicken strips in a rich and substantial garlic sauce. Pan fry seasoned chicken cutlets (chicken breasts cut in two) and then slice into strips and add to a rich and substantial garlic sauce, cooking briefly to immerse in the flavors.  Serve over a bed of cauli mash, sauteed cauli rice or over cooked spaghetti squash.  This meal is filling and tasty as can be.  It is also quick and easy to make and get onto the table in no time flat!

 

11/2 lbs chicken breasts (0.68 kg)

  (2 large chicken breasts)

1 tsp Montreal Chicken seasoning (5 mL)

1 tsp black pepper (5 mL)

1/2 tsp salt (2 mL)

3 tbsp olive oil (45 mL)

Creamy Garlic Butter Sauce:

1 tbsp minced garlic (15 ml)

1/2 cup chicken stock (125 mL)

1/4 cup whipping cream (60 mL)

4 tbsp butter (60 mL)

1/2 tsp dried parsley, OR cilantro (2 mL)

Fresh parsley, OR cilantro, for garnish (optional)

 

Slice chicken breasts in half as if going to stuff them and keep cutting through completely.  You will have 4 chicken cutlets.  In small bowl, combine Montreal Chicken Seasoning, black pepper and salt.  Sprinkle chicken cutlets with the seasoning on both sides. 

In large nonstick frying pan, over medium heat, cook chicken in olive oil.  Cook 5 minutes and do not disturb chicken cutlets.  They will brown nicely.  Flip chicken and cook again undisturbed for another 4 to 5 minutes, or until chicken is fully cooked (white throughout – slice through thickest part to check and remove thinner cutlets sooner).  Remove all chicken cutlets and slice into thin strips. 

Creamy Garlic Butter Sauce: To the same frying pan, add garlic and cook 1 minute.  Add chicken stock to deglaze the pan, scraping the bottom with a spatula.  Add cream, butter and dried parsley, OR cilantro.  Once sauce is hot and bubbly, add chicken strips into the sauce and heat 2 minutes.  Spoon the sauce over chicken strips, while cooking.  Garnish with fresh parsley, OR cilantro, if using, and serve.

SLOW-COOKER BACON-WRAPPED PORK LOIN

 



SLOW-COOKER BACON-WRAPPED 

PORK LOIN

Wrapping the pork in bacon kept all the yummy flavors in as well as the juices, making for a flavorful and moister pork loin. If you can use a thicker bacon; even better! We loved this and as per usual I could not help adding a bit of sweetness to the savory pork so that one can enjoy the sweet and salty savory flavors together.  Delicious! I will make this again.


3 lbs pork loin, trimmed of excess fat (1.45 kg)

2 tbsp bacon fat, OR olive oil (30 mL)

1 tsp salt (5 mL)

1 tsp seasoning salt (5 mL)

1/2 tsp black pepper (2 mL)

1/3 cup powdered erythritol (75 mL)

2 tbsp crushed, minced garlic (30 mL)

  (I used the bottled kind from Costco)

2 tsp molasses (10 mL)

8 slices bacon

 

In large skillet, brown pork loin on both sides in bacon fat, OR olive oil. 

In small bowl, mix salt, seasoning salt and black pepper.  Rub over the pork loin. 

In another small bowl, combine powdered erythritol, garlic and molasses. Spread over top of the seasoned pork.  Wrap the pork with bacon and carefully lower into the slow-cooker.  Cook on low heat about 5 or 6 hours.  If bacon is not browned to your liking, you can always place the pork underneath an oven broiler for a minute or two, however, I did not find it necessary.

BIG MAC CASSEROLE WITH BIG MAC SAUCE

 






BIG MAC CASSEROLE WITH BIG MAC SAUCE

You are going to love this easy casserole high on taste.  We sure did. It is rich-tasting, super-flavorful and delicious.  Great served with that familiar-tasting Big Mac Sauce.  Serve with a nice salad on the side or on a low-carb bun.


2 lbs lean ground beef (0.9 kg)

1 cup chopped onion (250 mL)

1 tbsp dill pickle relish (15 mL)

1 tbsp crushed garlic (15 mL)

2 tsp Worcestershire sauce (10 mL)

1 tsp salt (5 mL)

3/4 tsp seasoning salt (7 mL)

1 tsp black pepper (5 mL)

8 oz cream cheese (250 g)

2 eggs

1/2 cup heavy cream (125 mL)

1/4 tsp salt (1 mL)

2 cups grated Mozzarella, OR Cheddar cheese (500 mL)

Big Mac Sauce:

1/2 cup mayonnaise (125 mL)

2 tbsp dill pickle relish (30 mL)

1 tbsp mustard (15 mL)

1 tbsp sugar-free ketchup (15mL)

11/2 tsp crushed garlic (7 mL)

1/8 tsp onion salt (0.5 mL)

 

Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). 

In large frying pan, over medium high heat, brown ground beef, while breaking it up with a spatula, along with onion, dill pickle relish and garlic. While cooking the meat mixture, sprinkle with salt, seasoning salt and black pepper.  When beef is cooked and nicely browned, add cream cheese (broken up into pieces) and stir until incorporated.  Pour into 9 x 13-inch (23 x 33 cm) baking dish.  Pour egg mixture over top and sprinkle with remaining grated cheese.  Bake 20 to 25 minutes until cheese has melted.  Serve with Big Mac Sauce. 

In small bowl, beat eggs and stir in 1 cup (250 mL) Mozzarella, OR Cheddar cheese, heavy cream and salt.     

Big Mac Sauce:  In medium bowl, stir together mayonnaise, dill pickle relish, mustard, sugar-free ketchup, crushed garlic and onion salt.

ULTRA LOW-CARB CREPES (1.0 GRAM PER CREPE) with STRAWBERRY SAUCE

 




ULTRA LOW-CARB CREPES (1.0 GRAM PER CREPE) with STRAWBERRY SAUCE

I love these crepes!  Spread them with cream cheese, fold them over or roll 'em up and cover them in a sweet strawberry sauce (OR use frozen unsweetened raspberries instead). Yummy romantic treat for a dessert or for breakfast on Valentine's Day!

3 oz regular cream cheese (90 g)
5 eggs
2 tbsp coconut flour (30 mL)
1 tbsp gluten-free oat flour, OR buckwheat flour for grain-free (15 mL)
Liquid sweetener to equal 4 tsp sugar (equivalent 2 packets sweetener of your choice) (20 mL)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract (5 mL)
Strawberry Sauce:
3 cups frozen, unsweetened strawberries, slightly thawed, sliced (750 mL)
Liquid sweetener (sucralose or stevia)  to equal 1/3  cup sugar, OR 
  granular sweetener equivalent
2 tbsp powdered erythritol (30 mL)

Sweetened Spreadable Cream cheese (for inside crepes)

In food processor, process cream cheese.  Add eggs; process.  Add coconut flour, oat flour, liquid sweetener and vanilla extract and process until smooth, scraping down the sides at least once and processing again.

Use 3 tbsp (45 mL) batter for each crepe and a small, nonstick 6-inch (15 cm) crepe pan (inside diameter).  Tilt pan to coat with batter.  Cook over medium heat.  Flip crepe when it is easy to slide a spatula underneath it.  Cook a few seconds on the second side.  Set aside in covered casserole dish and in the oven at a low heat of 190°F (88°C).  Brush pan with a little olive oil between every other crepe or so.

Strawberry Sauce:  In saucepan, place frozen, slightly-thawed sliced strawberries. Add liquid sweetener and powdered erythritol.  Bring to the boil and simmer until sauce has thickened sufficiently.  Serve strawberry sauce poured over individual crepes.  Or for a super-quick sauce, simply blend all sauce ingredients in blender.

Assembly:  Spread crepes with sweetened spreadable cream cheese, roll up and serve with strawberry sauce.

Yield:  11 crepes (without sauce)

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.
