I'd like to get a couple of really good and interesting buscuit recipes. Something not too sweet, more on the savory side, good for breakfast, lunch, and dinner if posssible. Anyone got some ideas?
I was thinking of making a cheddar cheese sauce to drizzle over some broccoli, however, the recipes that I have for the sauce all include flour (to make the base) and milk. Any cooks out there that might have a suggestion or two to make the sauce low or no carb? Calories are not an issue.

I exercise portion control, stay away from sugar and other sweeteners except for certain fresh fruits.
Who's a thunk it!? I tried it this evening and was quite pleased.

A friend suggested wrapping the breasts after they've cooked for a while. That sounds like it may be...
Gave it a quick blanch, trimmed off the hard parts of the stalk, sautéed and caramelized some leeks in EVOO, added some garlic, put the rabe into the pan and let it cook down a bit, then added some red pepper flakes and some crispy pancetta pieces - the pancetta was trimmed of excess fat so the results were nice, lean, and meaty chips. Some of the pancetta fat remained in the pan, so the rabe was cooked with that and the olive oil. Quite tasty .... may try some spicy...
