Doin’ some Cooking!

Monday, September 29th, 2014

James really enjoyed this granola but I haven’t made it for a long time. I bought all the ingredients and today made a batch and 1/2. MMMMM it’s so good! I started another batch of kefir for baby. I used to make it and drink it all the time but it seems I’ve gotten a […]

It turned out!

Thursday, July 10th, 2014

I made this from a Pinterest idea for the Fourth of July! I think it turned out great. None of it was left after the party, so I guess everyone else agreed. I bought red, white, and blue candy melts. Red, white and blue sprinkles and a bag of M&M’s. James and I had to […]

Giving emeals A Try

Monday, March 17th, 2014

During my pregnancy and recovering and getting used to a baby in the house, I got a little lax about planning meals. There was always food in the house, but when James or Lee would ask “what’s for dinner?” I’d say something like, “We have hamburger, eggs, cheese, …..” then we’d think of something to […]

Olive Garden Low Carb Zuppa Toscana THM

Thursday, January 30th, 2014

Zuppa Toscana is one of James’ favorite soups. Recently on one of our super cold days, he asked if we could make this. I decided to tweak it so that I could eat it and not cheat on my plan. Here’s what I came up with….I’ll admit it’s not a perfect copy because the potatoes […]

Here are a couple recipes we tried this week. Christmas crack –we’ve made this many years and seen it on lots of blogs but man is it good! Holiday bacon appetizers–OH MY….James and I almost preferred the brown sugar variation. I think that we will finally try rosettes. I found a vintage rosette iron a long […]

Blue Cheese Pizza~Low Carb Cauliflower Crust~THM S

Tuesday, November 5th, 2013

A restaurant near here makes a similar type pizza. I tried it once and LOVED it. However, they don’t have a low carb crust and they’re really expensive. So, once in awhile, I make it for myself. Thankfully, Lee and James think it’s disgusting so I don’t even have to share! 1. Make a cauliflower […]

Filling Our Bellies

Wednesday, August 21st, 2013

The last few months before baby arrived, I worked on putting meals in the freezer. My goal was 30 meals and I think I got a few more than that put away. I loved seeing all the meals stack up in the freezer. James would drool over a few of them but I said, “Don’t […]

Lemon Cake~Grain Free

Monday, July 22nd, 2013

I played with a recipe that I found in this cookbook~it sounds delightful BUT I’m trying (trying!) to eat healthier and wanted to see if I could make something out of my healthy ingredients that tasted good. I did not make the original recipe so I can’t tell you if it’s remotely close. I can […]
