Best Lo-Carb Recipe Site

If you are following a lo-carb diet or thinking about it, take a look at Linda's Lo Carb Menus and Recipes.  Lind's recipes give information on calories, carbs and fiber and also tell you how many carbs per serving for all the recipes. She has tried all the recipes on her website and gives a review and tweaks for every one of them. Each recipe has a picture, so you can tell just what you are eating.

Linda Sue puts a star next to all the lo-carb recipes that are acceptable for Atkin's Induction, also. This site is a life saver for me when I get bogged down and bored with lo carb dieting. I've tried a lot of Linda Sue's recipes and can honestly say that they have all been tasty, especially the lo-carb desserts!

So, if you are following the Atkin's diet or just cutting down on carbs, check out Linda's Lo Carb Menus and Recipes.

Best Homemade Oatmeal Cookies

This oatmeal cookie recipe gives the most delicious oatmeal cookie I ever tried. They are moist, tasty and easy to bake.

The Best Oatmeal Cookie Recipe  


3/4 cup shortening                                    1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup brown sugar                                   1 cup flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar                          1 tsp. salt
1 egg                                                      1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 cup water                                          3 cups Oats

Beat shortening, sugars, egg, water and vanilla together until creamy. Sift together the flour, salt, baking soda and add the mix to the creamed mixture. Blend well.

Stir in the oats.
Drop by rounded teaspoon onto a greased cookie sheet.
Bake at 350 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes.

For variety, you can add raisins, nuts, coconut or chocolate chips. I prefer chopped walnuts mixed in my homemade oatmeal cookies.

Makes 5 dozen.
