Neiman Marcus Chicken Salad

This tasty Neiman Marcus Chicken Salad has a secret ingredient that gives the texture of the salad a wonderfully creamy texture. What is it ? Freshly whipped cream folded into the chicken, almond and grape salad. It works and it is wonderful. Serve on a bed of curly lettuce, with crackers or on a croissant. Enjoy!

Spicy Beef Ramen (Keto/Low Carb)

Spicy Beef Ramen is a filling and very low carb meal. Utilizing Miracle Noodles, which have zero carbs, you can have a nice, spicy bowl of ramen without the traditional noodles adding in carbs. These can be found on Amazon or at your local grocery store typically in the produce section. They do not need to be refrigerated.

Be sure to follow the directions exactly for the preparation of the noodles -- otherwise you might get some unpleasant flavored noodles. They are very quick to prepare, so please don't skip those steps. While  my meat was browning I was able to prepare the noodles in less than 5 minutes, so it is super quick.

If you wanted a thicker sauce, you could try whisking in a pinch of xanthan gum and reducing the sauce a bit. I was tempted to add in a spoonful of hoisin sauce and to add the thickener to the sauce, but I refrained to keep the carb count low.

Hoisin sauce typically has a lot of sugar unless you seek out a low carb bottle or make some at home from a low carb recipe. I didn't have the time for all that so I skipped it.


Spicy Beef Ramen (Keto/Low Carb)
Makes 4 servings
Per serving: 3 carbs, 23g protein

  • 1 pound 80/20 ground beef, browned and crumbled
  • 1/2 small onion, diced
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp. sesame oil
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 2 Tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 packages Miracle angel hair noodles
  • 1/2 cup green onions, chopped
  • garnish: red pepper flakes
  • optional: Sriracha sauce for more heat. This is not factored in to the nutrition count. You would add 1.3 carbs per teaspoon added.
  1. If not done already, prepare the ground beef and set aside. In the same pan, saute the onion, garlic, ginger, vegetable and sesame oil. Saute over medium for several minutes. 
  2. Add the beef broth and soy sauce and simmer for a few minutes. Switch heat to low to keep warm while you prepare noodles.
  3. Empty and drain the packages of Miracle noodles. Rinse with cold water for 20 seconds and drain in a colander. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Once boiling, add the noodles and cook for 1 minute. Drain and pat dry with a paper towel. Add the noodles to the warm broth mixture. Add in the ground beef, raising the temperature until everything is warmed through. Garnish with chopped green onions and red pepper flakes.

  1. I should try this. I have a package of similar noodles in the cupboard that are approved on the plan I am on. I have just not worked up the nerve to try them. But with your recipe, I feel a little more brave :)

  2. I totally forgot about those miracle noodles! Some people couldn't handle the texture, but they were fine for me. Yum!

Chicken Doritos Casserole

I'm not even gonna pretend that this anything but what I call "Trash Food." Every once in a while trash food is the best kind of food, comforting and totally delicious. Chicken Doritos Casserole fits that description perfectly. Enjoy!

Glazed Kielbasa Pineapple Bites

I found these tasty Glazed Kielbasa Bites at Real Housemoms a few weeks back. They are incredibly quick to put together and bake. If you are feeding a large crowd go ahead and double the amount of kielbasa & pineapple. The sauce should be enough even if you double the main ingredients.

Cheesy Shrimp Ciabatta

For out last get together I made this delicious Cheesy Shrimp Ciabatta. This is an appetizer that shrimp fans will love. In our family this is one of our most favorite recipes. It's so delicious! You can go with a baguette instead if you would like bite sized portions, but it is hard to beat a fresh loaf of ciabatta bread. The baguette slices will get much crunchier so if you prefer that mouth feel, you can go with a baguette. A fresh French bread would also work great. Enjoy!

Old Fashioned Ham Salad

Besides making ham and pineapple sandwiches, Ham Salad is my favorite way to use up leftover ham. For a delicious treat, serve this Ham Salad with butter crackers and slices of Swiss cheese. It is crazy delicious. Enjoy!

Cranberry Orange Bread

Moist orange quick bread studded with cranberries. Make this one the day before you plan to eat it and let it sit out overnight (covered) for the best flavor. This is the classic Ocean Spray recipe, minus the nuts as the kids prefer it that way. Enjoy!

Stick of Butter Rice

This delicious side dish was a hit at my house. The raving over this recipe was intense. To put it mildly, everyone loved it. Personally, I felt that the amount of butter could be cut down a bit in this recipe. I'll leave that up to you guys to decide what you think is best. I think I would go with 1/3 cup and see how that goes next time around. If you have unsalted butter I'd also recommend that you go with that, instead of the standard salted butter. Between the condensed soup and broth, it can get a bit salty. Note that for this recipe you want to use standard white rice, not instant rice. Enjoy!

Moist Pineapple Banana Bread

Moist Pineapple Banana Bread takes a tropical twist on classic banana bread, using crushed pineapple and coconut. After receiving some feedback that the pineapple flavor was mild, I have added in optional pineapple extract.  For that matter, you could even add in coconut extract as well if you really want to punch up the flavor. I would probably try that out next time I made this, but if you try it before me please let me know how it turned out in the comments. If you were wondering what the black specks are in the bread, as a reader asked below, they are banana seeds. Next time you take a bite of banana, notice the small black seeds that run down the middle. Mystery solved!  Update 2016: I've noticed over the years that banana bread, more so than other breads, has a tendency to burn on the sides and bottom due to the long bake time. After researching how to fix this problem, silicone loaf pans seem to be the answer. I plan on ordering one soon and wi
