Hope everyone had a truly wonderful Thanksgiving. We got to spend it with family and had some fabulous low carb dishes to accent our turkey to perfection. I may have eaten a little too much, but I sure ate healthy!

As we enter a time when each day will seem more hectic and more pressured than the day before, please take a few moments each morning to remind yourself of your goals and how you'll be achieving them. Make this a joyous holiday in every way by remembering that you matter too!

Our Christmas Planning Guide is online and ready to help!

      Product of thr Month

Our product review team will feature 2 (two) "Products Of The Month" one in each issue of our newsletter. These products will be the group consensus of those we find to be the most innovative, tasty, or helpful to the low-carber's daily dietary regime.

Expert Foods Cake-ability Expert Foods' Cake-ability
The people at
Expert Foods are (pardon the pun) experts at innovative ideas for cooking and baking. And when do you do MORE baking than at Christmas time? With their "Cake-ability", they've hit on another winner. This amazing mix allows you to mix 1/2 cup of their product with your favorite nut flour, eggs, sweetener, and liquid (water, soda, DaVinci, etc), and voila — you have a cake with a texture that very closely resembles commercial cake-mix textures for an exceptionally low carb cake! And if the liquid you use is DaVinci Sugarfree Syrup, you may not need to add the carbs from granulated sweeteners.

The package back label contains recipes for a standard (any flavor) cake, a basic chocolate cake, a chocolate torte, banana bread, or muffins. Plus hints and tips for make other flavors and varieties. And guess what? They're all easy and they all work!

Cakes We tried making the cakes with three different nut flours — almond (we used a very fine ground blanched almond flour), which gives the most traditional texture and taste; pecan flour, which gives a rich praline flavor to cakes and is super with spices like cinnamon, cloves, etc.; and with macadamia nut flour, which gave us the most moist results, and a sweet nutty taste. You can always mix your nut flours, too.

The possibilities are nearly endless, and they can be made in loaf pans, round pans, cupcakes, etc. Top with flavored whipped cream, cream cheese frostings, etc. Or just cut in squares and serve as a snack cake. This is just what you need to be able to have lots of baked goods on hand when holiday guests drop over. Or bake up a storm and you've got great gifts for those low carbers on your list!

A 6-oz pouch makes three 1.5 pound cakes (48 servings!)  I can't imagine not using it in my nut-flour cakes anymore! You can order online from
The Low Carb Connoisseur.
