high carb lovers? post recipes and favorites


Recommended Posts

I know there are others here lurking in the shadows... I love high carb foods, I don't think they're bad for me, they are the staples of our kitchen. :001_smile: So if your family is like mine and has lots of breads, fruit, potatoes, grains, cereals, pizza etc. on hand please share! We also have lots of much-maligned 100% fruit juice on hand. And we love cookies, cakes, and brownies too.


This is our basic bread. I switched from yeasted whole wheat bread to this quick bread. It is soft, delicious and very simple to make.


4 cups WW flour

1 cup white sugar

2 tbs baking powder

1 tsp salt


1 cup vegetable oil

3 cups whole milk


Combine the dry ingredients, then add the wet ingredients and mix well. I divide this between two loaf pans and cook for 1 hr at 350F. This is so good with any kind of topping, or as a side. My dad says it tastes like cake. (It has a lot of sugar but not as much as cake.) It's a cheaper variation of the bran muffin recipe that used to be on the box of Kellogg All Bran.

I'm not really a carb lover, but my french canadian husband had such fond memories of eating Salmon Pie as a kid, i had to make it for him just once . . . except we all loved it! I use this recipe, basically, except I did cut down the potatoes to 4, use a larger can of red salmon (which is the pricier salmon) and instead of milk, I drain the salmon liquid in to the measuring cup first, and then fill in the rest of the cup with milk. Well, 3/4 cup since I use less potatoes.


we also eat his version of shepherds pie - ground beef sauteed with an onion, creamed corn, and mashed potatoes. Sometimes he lets me add green beans . . .


oddly, he really likes vegetables and fruits and lean meats, but i think he grew up in a carb-heavy home and so its comfort food for him
