LC Cocoa by Alyssa Palomares
Brownie Recipe adapted from http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UrfnNdylTlA
Single-serving LC Brownie by Alyssa Palomares
I should note that this recipe was intended for a toaster oven, but it can be adapted for a regular oven. The original recipe was supposed to be microwaved, but that might dry out the brownie. The texture is more like a cake instead of an authentic brownie, but I'm not sure how to fix that. Some people might consider it dull by itself, so feel free to give it a frosting, mix in some chocolate chips, put low carb ice cream on top - whatever you like!
I wanted to give measurements for making multiple servings, but I'm not sure how that would affect the cooking time. I did increase the measurements to make two brownies once, but I don't remember how much I had to adjust the time or if I had to. Sorry if this is inconvenient! I know how inefficient it might be to heat up a regular oven for just one brownie.
-3 tbsp butter OR coconut oil, softened - or you can use a mixture of both!
Preheat oven or toaster oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
In a bowl, mix butter/coconut oil with the sweetener thoroughly. Add egg, and beat. Alternate between adding the coconut flour and coffee (in that order), 1 tbsp at a time. Add cocoa powder and vanilla extract, and mix thoroughly. Pour batter into a ramekin and put in the oven for 15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Alternatively, you can scoop the batter onto a cookie pan lined with aluminum foil to make pancakes. It might also work if you put the batter in a skillet, but I haven't tried that.

Tossed Spice Chicken Thighs by Hunter Copeland
1 pound of chicken thighs (works w/ chicken legs)
melted butter or coconut oil
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Pat the chicken legs dry. Brush with either melted butter or coconut oil and sprinkle with each spice. You may vary them depending on your taste preferences. We have tried it with different spices and diffeent amounts. It is good regardless. Sage and rosemary work well. Bake the chicken in a shallow baking dish and when you notice liquid flowing from it, baste the droppings back over the top of the chicken. Also,this recipes isn't as good with breast meat. Use the fattier chicken parts -thighs or legs.

1 pound ground beef
2 tablespoons onion, chopped
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 cup spaghetti sauce
8 ounces cream cheese
1/8 teaspoon pepper
10 ounces frozen chopped spinach, thawed & drained
4 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded
2 tablespoons parmesan cheese (I used the kind in a can)
Brown the hamburger with the onion; drain off the fat. Mix in the
garlic powder and spaghetti sauce; season to taste and heat until
bubbly. Meanwhile, soften the cream cheese in a medium-size
microwaveable bowl for about 40-60 seconds. Stir until creamy; beat in
the egg and pepper with a spoon until well mixed. Blend in the
spinach. Spread half of the meat mixture evenly in the bottom of a
greased, 8 x 8″ glass baking pan. Spread the spinach mixture over the
meat; top with the mozzarella, then the rest of the meat. It may not
completely cover the top, but that’s ok. Sprinkle with the parmesan
cheese. Bake at 350º about 30 minutes until hot and bubbly. Or, cover
with plastic wrap and vent one corner then microwave on HIGH for 3
minutes; then reduce to MEDIUM and cook for another 7-10 minutes until
hot and bubbly. Let stand 3 minutes before serving.

Bryan's Pro-Biotic Ginger Bug, a recipe that is super simple and can heal / restore health!
Every day or 2 add the same amount of ginger and sugar (and water as necessary).
This will start to bubble, then you know it's active and consuming the sugar.
You'll be consuming just a tiny fraction of a teaspoon of sugar, but you're getting a healthy dose of probiotics.
This liquid can be used for many many purposes. Even making your own ginger ale (or ginger beer as it is called).

Mousse au Chocolat Recipe
Mousse au chocolat is a traditional French dessert. I have seen U.S. recipes (like Alton Brown's version) that are nothing like a real French mousse. And guess what? A real French mousse au chocolat is also a fairly low carb treat. Now, this is not a low carb recipe blog, but since I am in Belgium, where I can easily buy 70% or more dark chocolate (which is lower in sugar and high in cocoa butter), I will post one anyway.
The recipe below uses 70% dark chocolate Belgian chocolate (see nutritional information) but you can also make it with 86% dark Belgian chocolate (see nutritional information). Ghiradelli also sells dark chocolate, if you cannot easily find dark Belgian chocolate. But it and other brands (e.g., Lindt) have soy lecithin in it. Whatever brand of dark chocolate you use, make sure cocoa butter is listed on the label. It is found only in high quality chocolate.
Melt the chocolate in a double boiler over water that is simmering, but not boiling. Add butter to the melted chocolate. Note: good Belgian chocolate has a lower melting point than U.S. chocolate and the melted mixture should not be too hot, so it won't cook the egg yolks.
Separate the two eggs. Beat the egg yolks then mix them into the melted chocolate until it is smooth, and without lumps.
Whip the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Gently fold the whites into the chocolate mixture.
Divide into three dishes and refrigerate for three or more hours. Each mousse will have about seven net grams of carbs per serving.
I usually consume fewer than 30 grams of carbs per day, so this would be about a fourth of my daily total. Therefore I would not recommend eating it very often, but it is a nice way to occasionally treat yourself to some dark chocolate, which is high in healthy cocoa butter.
Shrimp Cocktail Sauce
Take 6 to 8 ripe, medium sized tomatoes. Peel and seed the tomatoes.
Pulse the tomatoes in your food processor (but do not puree; leave chunks).
Add 1/4 cup pure horseradish (or perhaps a bit more, if you like more bite to your sauce)
Salt and pepper to taste.
Juice from 1/4 lemon
1 Tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce (optional).
Then stir it all together. Makes about one cup of cocktail sauce for your cold, boiled shrimp. Without using processed and carb-laden ketchup.
We discovered that it tastes better if it has had a while for the flavors to mix, so prepare some a few hours before you need it. And we sometimes needed to put the sauce on the shrimp with a spoon, but it was really good. It also avoided the necessity of making cocktail sauce with ketchup.
