I love to read food blogs, and spent lots of my free time doing it, especially now that I have cable internet. (Big Smile.) There are so many talented people writing food blogs these days, and as I'm checking my favorite blogs each day, I often see dishes that would be perfect for my lower carb way of eating. I've decided to pick a few of these every now and then and spotlight them here, my way of letting those other bloggers know how great I think their dishes look and sharing those blogs with the people who read my blog.
This week I noticed a blog that was new to me called In Our Kitchen. The creator of this is one of a talented group of bloggers who comes from the Phillipines, and her food is interesting and a little unusual. On the blog I spotted a recipe for Sassy Chicken with Mushrooms and Sour Cream which sounded delicious and very low in carbs. We must acknowledge that the dish was adapted by In Our Kitchen from a recipe on Pinoy Cook, the queen of the Phillipine food bloggers.
Another new blog I discovered recently is A Veggie Venture written by a woman named Alanna from St. Louis, Missouri. She took on the admirable task of cooking a vegetable a day for a month, and six months later she is still going strong and telling about it on this well written and well designed blog. Here I spotted a recipe for Cauliflower Tomato Medley which would just need a little changing, cut down the breadcrumbs a little, to be a great lower carb option. (By the way, I was very flattered to find a link to Kalyn's Kitchen here which I hadn't known about.)
Last, but absolutely not least, on one of my very favorite food blogs, Stephen Cooks, a fabulous pasta dish with roasted tomatoes and Italian sausage which would be a great lower carb choice with a few minor adaptations. When I made his Roasted Tomato and Sausage Pasta I would use Dreamfields penne for the pasta, use less onion and increase the proportion of sausage to pasta to make this a lower carb meal. Use all the freshly grated parmesan you want because it's already low in carbs. (Also thanks to Stephen for linking to me on his site, which features beautiful photos in addition to fabulous recipes.)
There you have it. Food Blog Finds with fabulous recipes that could be a great option for dinner whether or not you are watching your carbs. Enjoy!
