1/4 tsp pepper

1 c Low Sodium Beef Broth

1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce

3 c Mushroom,Sliced

2 Tbsp Fresh Parsley

Cook bacon until crisp; drain, and crumble. Place beef, bacon, carrots, and onions in the bottom of the crock pot. Whisk together flour,
marjoram, garlic, and pepper with broth, wine and Worcestershire sauce.
Pour mixture into crockpot. Cook on high for 1 hour. Reduce to low and
cook for 5-6 hours. Add mushrooms to crock pot. Cook on high for 30
minutes or until mushrooms are tender While mushrooms are cooking,
prepare noodles according to package directions. Serve beef over noodles
garnished with parsley, if desired.

This broccoli goes with almost any meal.


  • 1 bunch broccoli - cut into florets, stem peeled and chopped
  • 1 T oil (see tip)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced, grated, or pressed

    small amount of oil.

  3. Combine soy sauce, sesame oil, sherry, and sweetener.

Berry Custard Cake

This dessert separates into a sponge cake layer on top and a custard layer
underneath with a warm berry center. Fabulous!

1 cup of fresh strawberries or mixed raspberries, blueberries, and
strawberries (or use frozen berries, thawed and drained)

2 tablespoons of softened butter
1/2 cup granular Splenda
2 eggs, separated
1/3 cup of buttermilk
1/4 cup of heavy cream
1/4 cup of water
1 tablespoon of lc flour sub, sifted

Sugar-free Whipped Cream for topping, optional

Preheat oven to 350F. Have ready four 6-ounce ramekins, a roasting pan big
enough to hold them, which has been lined with a folded
cup towel, and a kettle of boiling water.

Put a few berries into each of the four 6-oz ramekins or bowls, reserving
some for garnish. Set the ramekins aside.

In a mixing bowl, cream the butter with a rubber spatula until smooth. Add
the Splenda and cream the mixture until very light and well mixed. Add the egg
yolks, one at a time, and beat well with a whisk or an electric mixer. Beat
in the buttermilk, cream, water, and the sifted flour. In a second bowl,
using clean beaters, beat the egg whites to stiff-peak stage. Fold 1/2 cup of the
beaten whites into the
batter to lighten. With a spatula, carefully fold in the rest of the whites
until smooth. Line the baking pan with a folded cloth cup-towel so the
bottoms of the dishes are not in direct contact with the pan. Place the ramekins in
the baking pan and divide the batter equally among them. Carefully add
boiling water to fill the pan halfway up the sides of the ramekins. Bake until the
cakes are puffed and
golden brown, about 18 to 20 minutes. Serve warm or cold garnished with the
reserved berries and whipped cream.
