  1. Thanks! I am going to perhaps make this sometime this week and serve with a wilted spinach salad.

    Dinner! 2008

    I'd love your recipe, that looks really good!
  3. Great blog so far! so do you speak Japanese fluently? Also, are you working in Japan? Looking forward to where the week takes us.
  4. Bruce, I loved the salad, as did my guests! BF thought it had slightly too much lime. I'll post some pics later of the dinner and my carnitas were great too. This is the recipe that I used. They were very moist and flavorful and then if you want them crispy, stick them under the broiler for a bit.
  5. Thank you very much, Stephanie! Here is the recipe - jicama salad with lime-cilantro dressing. I hope you like it more than Susan liked my other recommendation. ← Thanks Bruce, I made the dressing this morning and it tasted really good. I'll let you know what the crowd says.
  6. Bruce, your food as always looks great. How can I get that cilantro lime dressing recipe. I am having a Mexican inspired theme dinner party tomorrow and could make that since I have a bunch of lettuce and jicama laying around. I'll be making carnitas roasted first in an orange/lime juice, achiote paste marinade, tucked inside of banana leaves, then we'll shred it up and broil it to make it crispy. I am serving with pickled habanero onions, fresh made salsa and gauc. I'll put pics up, since we photo the meal each month.

    Marcia, that looks really good. Did you by chance make it low carb?
  8. Katie, I have that same shaker with the blades, in my kitchen with all of my other vintage cocktail shakers. I too went on a binge several years ago and purchased about 12-14 shakers. *As I look up at them all dusty*
  9. thanks for the suggestions, I always love the egullet community when going to a new area. Last year, I was going to Paso Robles and got a wonderful recommendation, so I will look into those for sure. Thanks!
  10. Hi, not sure if this is the right forum, but I will be spending 1 week in Kalamazoo in a couple of weeks. I'll be staying at the Radisson, with only hotel shuttle as my transportation. What are some worth seeking out restaurants in that area? Thanks in advance for your help.
  11. can't wait to see your next experiments!
  12. My brother had a bassett hound named Harley....myself, I am partial to the name Peabody..he looks like one.
  13. the other day, I found a new type of "chip". These are called "Soy Crisps" by a company called Eatsmart all natural snacks, a division I guess of Snyders of Hanover. For 20 chips, they are 6 grams of carbs, after you subtract the fiber, which is 5 grams. They also have 8 grams of protein. They are flavored, the ones I got were Parmesan Garlic and Olive oil. They are pretty tasty, when you need a crunchy salty snack.
  14. I read the book first on a recommendation from a client, and liked it, and was excited to see the movie. I feel that they cut a lot of the book out, especially the more intriguing parts. The movie disappointed me, but my BF loved the movie, even after reading the book.
  15. hummingbird kiss, I am making the jicama home fries right now. They are pretty tasty..although the first taste was one that I was expecting potato, since it smelled and looked like it. We shall see if my BF likes them. Thanks for the tip
  16. I can only speak for myself, and how this diet has worked for me. I don't really know how my personal insulin system works. I've tired WW and I've tired low fat, I've tried phentermine with 1000 calories a day and stayed under 26 grams of fat. The latter worked for me to lose many pounds, but obviously, I've gained it all back and then some. This diet that I am doing keeps me satisfied, which is the big thing here, so I don't have the urge to snack. I don't get hungry between meals, I am full easier and don't necessarily crave sugar, except chocolate at TOM, and I just have a few very small hunks in the fridge and that usually helps. I can't believe I was skeptical of this so many years ago. I also think that its easier to follow than WW IMO, since when I go out to eat, I can have a big salad, forgo the bread and eat some meat and I'll be good to go.
  17. thanks! I am so going to try these this weekend, and I will let you know.
  18. what does the final result taste like? Is it more like potato taste? They are a little higher in carbs too, if I remember correctly versus cauliflower right? I may have to try this this weekend.
  19. What are Japanese spinach noodles?
  20. check out the roasted cauliflower recipe on the recipegullet. It's very good, I make it all the time. Last night I made mashed cauliflower and added some horseradish, and sour cream. It was very good. I am happy that I have an almost "potato" in the cauliflower.

    Marcia How are those shiritake noodles? I have been wanting to try them, but a little leary. Would they be good carbonara style?
  22. I've been wondering about that book. Can you give me a couple of examples of recipes that are in there? I have a feeling that I probably already have some adaptation of some of them too. The one thing I made last night was cauliflower, mashed up (which I have done before) but this new book, suggested horseradish in them, which was good.
  23. Hello all. I just received the book, and have skimmed it. My initial impression is that it has some good recipes, some are repeats from Dana Carpenter and the Atkins site. I am a little leary of his carb counts. From the few that I looked at, the most was 5 grams per serving. Not to say that it isn't true, since I didn't really digest everything fully. I would not (am glad that I didn't) pay $33 or $35 for this book. I am happy that I got a new/slightly used copy for $15 even though it took 2-3 weeks shipping. Over the next few days, I'll look it over and give better impressions of it. For now, it seems worth the $15 and 2 1/2 weeks shipping to get some different ideas for low carb cooking..
  24. So far, your blog sounds interesting..looking forward to where the week takes us.
