Teriyaki Beef Skewers

The rain has mainly stopped although the water is still in my back yard and receding a little in the front. You may have seen my post on the flooding here in Davie, Florida. We were hit so hard we made national news. It will be sometime before this water is gone, especially since we are in the rainy season. 

I decided to grill out today (I wanted to be outdoors a little) and when I saw this recipe for Teriyaki Beef Skewers, I knew that I had to make them.

I made a few changes to the original recipe, like adding some grated fresh ginger and mango/pineapple juice instead of just pineapple juice.

I marinated the beef for only 6 hours instead of the 24 it called for and they were still great. This would be great to do the night before so all you would have to do is grill them when you come home.

The recipe stated that the pineapple juice was optional, but I think it gave it added flavor, even though I used a mango/pineapple version.

I love recipes that I can easily make changes to. Next time I am going to try chicken instead of beef.

Chicken with Maple Bacon Glaze

I love making low carb recipes and this one was so yummy and easy. I try to stay away from sugar and instead choose natural sugar like maple syrup or honey in my dishes. Add bacon and how can you go wrong. Right?

Low Carb Shrimp Veggie Casserole

I am still on my low carb diet and really enjoying it. Most of the time when I go on a diet, it doesn't last too long. However, with all of the great recipes out there, like this one, I am finding that I can stay on low carb.

Low Carb Basil Balsamic Dressing

Do you love salads? Salads are my favorite meal. I could eat salad everyday and I usually do. Now that I am on a low carb diet, salads are a natural choice as long as you watch out for the dressing.

Do you have a favorite salad? I don't think I have a favorite, but most of mine usually involve some kind of chicken.

Don't you just love all of the healthy things you can put on your salad and they are so good for you. And then there is the dressing.

I made salads the other night with some great ingredients:
grilled chicken, kale, lettuce, almonds, feta cheese, shredded carrots, a few low-sugar cranberries and broccoli.

Balsamic Chicken with Brussels Sprouts

I am continuing my quest to eat low carb. I have found some recipes that I am either trying or making changes to. This recipe for Balsamic Chicken with Brussels Sprouts originally called for adding tomatoes. Since I am not a tomato fan, I needed to add a vegetable that would work with the chicken - Brussels sprouts. The combination was amazing.

Low Carb Mexican Casserole

I started on a low carb diet a few weeks ago. I lost 5 pounds in the first week and then stabilized for a few days and then have lost another couple of pounds. The one thing I have noticed is that although my weight seems to be at a plateau, I am losing inches. My jeans are starting to fall down. That is a good thing, right? 

One of the dishes that I have made several times is this Mexican Casserole.
