Cheesy Chicken Green Bean Casserole

This is a US recipe, but conversions are easy since measurements don't really need to be exact.

Ham and Cabbage Bake

A US recipe, but easily converted.

Chicken & Broccoli Casserol

A US recipe, but easily converted.

Butter Pecan Crème Brulee

This dessert is fantastic. It is a US recipe, but easily converted. When using the Splenda I used packets, which aren't available in the UK, so I estimated 1pkt - 1tablespoon of the pourable kind, and that seemed to work out alright.

Coconut Cream Pudding

This is my favorite low carb dessert: I always make it if I'm cooking for someone else and ';m trying to stay on track - they never guess it is diet food. :) Makes 4 servings. 4.9 carbs per serving.

Hot Chicken Salad

I make this super easy chicken salad and serve it hot over a bed of cool lettuce: it is fantastic! The specific spice I use is a Schwartz brand available in the UK.

Tomato Fry-Up

This is a good recipe for when you've got extra veggies to cook up and no idea where to put them. It is slightly higher carb due to the tomatoes, but unless you are on strict induction (or hate tomatoes!) it is still low carb and has never halted my weight loss.

Spicy Low-Carb Chili

UK recipe. I make this ALL THE TIME in the winter! It is fantastic. It uses kidney beans which are too high carb for some people's diets, but this recipe is just as good without the beans - I promise! I serve this with little crackers for non-low carbers.

Strawberry Cheesecake Whip

This take on a cheesecake requires only 3 ingredients and no oven - so it is a snap to make, and really REALLY yummy!

Cucumber Salad

A quick and light salad to make, great with some barbecue wings on a summers day.
