I made this recipe for my 16th Birthday a couple of weeks ago. It is a really yummy cheescake recipe that you can decorate with whatever you want. All of the information is near the bottom of the site and it is only 1/2 of a carb choice for one! i found that it didn't raise my bloodsugar too quickly as well since it doesn't have too much sugar in it. I turned mine into bunnies. :P The rest of the site has great recipes as well. :D

Who's heading to TCOYD in Santa Rosa,CA next week? Stop by and say hello. I will be speaking their.

Salmon is truly a fish for all seasons. It can be prepared in so many tasty ways, and this is one of my favorites. Baked or grilled, the light marinade makes this dish unforgettable. It's easy and quick to prepare, but your friends will think you cooked all day.What's in it?
2 medium-size fresh salmon filets
2 Tbsp fresh garlic
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp fresh basil
2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 red pepper
2 green peppers
1 red onion
1 large Portobello mushroom
4 bamboo skewers

Let's Put it Togather
Skin salmon and cut it into 1-inch pieces. Mix garlic, oil, basil and lemon juice in a bowl. Combine with salmon and refrigerate for 2 hours.
Place skewers in cold water for 10 minutes before building the skewers. (This will keep them from burning.)
Alternate peppers, onions, mushrooms, and salmon on skewers.

Place on a hot grill for 8 to 10 minutes, turning often, or place on a baking sheet in a 375-degree oven for 10 to 12 minutes.

Sounds good, also sounds like something to whip up from the store cupboard for unexpected guests.
