4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1⁄3 cup heavy cream
1⁄2 teaspoon taco seasoning
8 ounces shredded cheddar cheese
1 lb ground beef
3 teaspoons taco seasoning
1⁄4 cup low carb tomato sauce
4 ounces chopped green chilies
8 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded
Crust: beat the cream cheese and eggs until smooth, then add in cream and seasoning.
Spread cheese over a 9 X 13 pan with parchment paper on it, then pour in the egg mixture as evenly as possible. Bake at 375ºF, 25-30 minutes or more. Let stand 5 minutes before adding the topping.
Topping: brown the hamburger; drain fat. Stir in the seasoning, tomato sauce and chiles. Spread over the crust. Top with cheese. Reduce oven to 350ºF and bake another 20 minutes or so until hot and bubbly. Serve with the toppings of your choice. I used guacamole. I think sour cream would be good too!

I’m constantly looking for recipes for my low carb diet. I was really excited when I found this idea that is easy to make AND a great time-saver!!
You can make about a week’s worth of eggs at one time using this recipe. I’m eating these for my mid-morning snack, but you can also eat it for breakfast or at some other time.
I worry about leftovers going bad, so I didn’t make all twelve eggs, but I think these should last about a week. Although, if it smells bad, don’t eat it!! I figure it will be about three days before they’re all eaten.
**You can add other ingredients that you like, such as spinach, mushrooms, onions, etc. These are the things I like!
Spray pam on a muffin pan. Add egg, sausage, cheese and jalapeños. Put in oven at 350 for about 15 minutes. Pull out of the oven and put them in your belly or in a tupperware for future meals on the go!
One thing I will tell you about a cruise is that you WILL gain weight. I had so much fun on the cruise, but I gained about 6 lbs. YIKES! I’d already gained about 15 since I moved back to Dallas, so 6 more is totally not acceptable to me!! PLUS, my 30 year reunion is in 2 more weeks. So, what is one to do in this situation? Get back on track. Start eating healthy.
I went to the book store and got a couple of South Beach Diet books. I’m not going to do the full diet. I don’t want anything that is restrictive, but they have some really good recipes in those books. I’ve already done grocery shopping and plan to eat my own cooking for lunch and dinner rather than eat a lean cuisine at lunch and go to a restaurant for dinner.
This one I kind of made up on my own, but it was really good!!
Baked Italian Chicken:
1 chicken breast
1/4 bottle of Zesty Italian Dressing Lite
Lemon pepper to taste
Put the chicken breast in a pan and cover it with the italian dressing, it doesn’t have to be all the way full of the dressing, just enough so there is a little at the bottom. Shake as much lemon pepper on top of the chicken as you like. Put in the oven at 400 degrees for about an hour or until cooked thoroughly.
50/50 Spring Mix
Zesty Italian Dressing, Lite
Baked italian dressing

Make a bed of lettuce. Put mozzarella cheese on top of the lettuce. Put chicken strips on top of the cheese. Cover with Italian Dressing.
You now have a healthy salad to eat that will fill you up!!
