Win Splendid Low-Carbing by Jennifer Eloff!

Another fabulous prize in our giveaway this month is Jennifer Eloff's national best selling cookbook Splendid low-carbing: A complete guide for low-carb living. Just looking at the photos on the back of the cover start my mouth watering.

This book contains 191 pages of recipes that will knock your socks off, so hang on to your other apparel. You'd look strange sitting there in your birthday suit reading a cookbook. :)

Seriously though, how can you go wrong with recipes like these:

Cream of Cauliflower Soup
Avocado Walnut Salad
Bacon-Wrapped Meat Loaf
Buttermilk-Parmesan Dressing
Cinnamon-Swirl Egg Bread
Apple Walnut Torte

I could go on and on, but I won't. I'll do something better. I'll share a recipe from this amazing cookbook so you can see for yourself.

Your friends will beg you for this recipe!

8 oz light cream cheese, softened (250 g)
1/2 cup mayonnaise (125 mL)
11/2 cups Cheddar cheese (375 mL)
2 tbsp chopped chives, OR (25 mL)
green onions
1 tsp dried parsley (5 mL)
1/4 tsp garlic powder (1 mL)
8 crisply cooked bacon slices

In food processor with sharp blade or in blender, process cream cheese and mayonnaise until smooth. In medium bowl, combine cream cheese mixture, Cheddar cheese, chives or green onions, parsley and garlic powder until well combined. Spread evenly in 9-inch (23 cm) glass pie dish.

Place bacon on bacon rack and cover with two paper towels. Microwave on high power 7 to 8 minutes. Cut into small pieces with pair of kitchen scissors. Garnish top of cheese spread with bacon pieces. Bake in 350°F (180C) oven 15 minutes and serve with low-carb crackers or slices of English cucumber.
