January Favorites

All the recipes below were the result of various requests we've received this month and several are based on original magazine or newspaper recipe-favorites. The Chocolate Chip Cheesecake wraps it all up, and came together beautifully with the use of two recent low-carb debuts — Keto's Chocolate Biscotti Cookies for the crust, and Low Carb Chef's yummy sugar free chocolate chips!

Orange-Glazed Chicken Wings

Roll up your sleeves and dig into dinner! Orange flavors, soy sauce, and plenty of garlic coat these wings with fabulous flavor!

Orange-Glazed Chicken Wings
  • 1 cup diet orange or tangerine soda *
  • 2 tablespoons grated orange zest (peel)
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon Splenda
  • 1 teaspoon molasses
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh-ground black pepper
  • 4 pounds chicken wings
Heat the oven to 400F. In a large bowl, combine orange soda with the orange zest, garlic, soy sauce, Splenda, molasses, salt, and pepper. Add the chicken wings and toss to coat.

On two large baking sheets, arrange the wings in a single layer. Reserve 1/4 cup of the orange mixture and spoon the rest of the mixture over the wings. Bake for 20 minutes. Turn the wings over and baste them with the reserved orange mixture. Cook until just done, about 10 minutes longer.

MENU SUGGESTIONS: Serve this finger food with a vegetable that you can also eat with your hands, such as strips of raw jicama.

TIP: When you grate the orange zest, remove only the orange layer of the skin, leaving the bitter white pith behind.

* Diet Rite Tangerine works GREAT here! Or, if you prefer, you can use pre-made Ket-OJ, or Sugar Free Tang.

Makes 4 servings — 3 grams of carbohydrate per serving.

  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • 1 medium onion, sliced very thinly
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons paprika, divided
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Meanwhile, sprinkle 1 teaspoon of the paprika, garlic salt, and pepper over both sides of the pork chops. Place chops on rack of broiler pan.

Broil 5 minutes. Turn; broil until chops are no longer pink in center, 4 to 5 minutes.

Chocolate Chip Cheesecake
  • 1/4 cup almond or walnut flour (finely ground nut meal)
  • 4 Keto Chocolate Biscotti Cookies - finely crushed
  • 2 Tablespoons Splenda
  • 4 Tablespoons butter - melted
  • 5 (8-oz) packages full fat cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup Splenda
  • 1/2 cup DaVinci Sugar Free Vanilla Syrup
  • 1 Tablespoon Oat Flour
  • 1 Tablespoon sugarfree vanilla extract
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup Sugar Free Chocolate Chips

Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Preheat oven to 350F.

Mix the crust ingredients and press into bottom of springform or cheesecake pan.

Mix cream cheese, Splenda, DaVinci Sugar Free Vanilla Syrup, and vanilla extract with an electric mixer until blended. Add eggs one at a time, mixing on low after each, just until blended. Blend in oat flour and mix again. Then blend in sour cream.

Add Sugar Free Chocolate Chips and stir in gently with a large spoon (don't use mixer!) and pour over crust. (If you like, reserve some for top of cake ... when cake begins to "set", sprinkle additional decorative chips over top and finish baking.)

Bake 1 hour and 5 minutes to 1 hour and 10 minutes or until center is almost set. Run knife around the rim of the pan to loosen cake and allow to cool before removing the springform pan ring. Refrigerate overnight.

This makes a LARGE cake! Total carbs in cake: 102 At 20 servings: 5.1 carbs per slice. At 24 servings: 4.25 carbs per slice.
