  • Earl Grey Infused Coconut Ice Cream Bars with Blueberries and Cucumber

    | I don’t know what it is about the summer, but there is always memories of childhood fun in the sun.  For me, it’s moments at the beach, maybe a little too sunburnt, but happy.  I can remember my mom making ice pops for us.  She filled these same type of molds with juice and we would enjoy them after a day the beach or fun in the backyard.  They were always the perfect ending of a hot and happy Summer day.  It is with these memories that this recipe was born. I was walking through my local grocery store a few weeks ago on a super hot day.  New…

  • Whipped and Creamy, Rhubarb Tart with Hazelnut Crust (Dairy-Free, Low Carb, Keto, Gluten Free)

    | Hello and Happy Friday my friends, I have been working on this recipe for a few weeks now and I am quite thrilled with it.  If there is anything I miss eating Keto, it’s probably all the fruit I used to eat.  Before Keto I was eating a lot of fruit.  I mean a lot, like way too much, because it was one of the few things I thought I could eat (oh those days were so rough).  Now I don’t crave fruit because of the carbs, but rather the fresh, subtle sweet acidity that much fruit has.  A freshness that is all about summer.  With this recipe I…

  • Dairy Free, Gluten Free, All Purpose Puffed Buns

    | Surprise!  Extra post for you today! I wasn’t sure if I wanted to post this recipe.  I have been making them for weeks, but I know there are a lot of good,  low carb bread recipes out there.  What changed my mind is how much my husband LOVED these little buns. I have been using them as burger buns a lot because the harder crust holds the burger better then the average low-carb bun and especially lettuce.  Not that I don’t love a lettuce wrapped burger, but having a bun is just better.  What I didn’t realize at first was how incredibly versatile these little buns are.  I told…

  • Crispy Salmon Burgers with Basil Edamame Pesto

    | Hello! I hope you had a wonderful Easter or Passover or normal, weekend.  My week has been a pretty good one.  My training app. updated my training schedule this week so I am a little more sore then normal, but it’s always fun to push myself.  My relationship with food has been better this week.  I can’t say I have been perfect.  I said no to the King’s Hawaiian Sweet Rolls at dinner…but promptly snuck one…or two, after dinner while doing the dishes, (I should have known better then to bring them into the house) but, I did say no to the Easter candy, so I feel like, all-in-all,…

  • Peanut Butter and Jelly Protein Bars

    | It is finally starting to warm up and the sun is coming out.  Do you know what that means?  No more excuses on getting in that activity.  No more, it’s too cold, too icy, too much clothes, too windy, too whatever!  Time to put on those leggings and get out there, take a deep breath of that fresh air and give yourself a pat on the back for getting through another winter. Right now I am training for a half marathon that is happening in a couple of weeks.  I am very excited about it.  It will be my first big city race where their are actual professional runners…give…

  • Sautéed Carrot and Cabbage Ribbons

    | This is just a little something extra this week that is the perfect Spring accompaniment to your Easter or Passover Feast.  It is really just an easy, tasty vegetable side for any dinner.  I threw this together to accompany the Roasted Pineapple Pork Tenderloin dish when I was testing the recipe.   I generally test each recipes at least twice.  Just like you, I make them for dinner.  If they don’t pass my husband’s taste buds, they don’t make it on this blog.  I did not plan on putting this on the blog but my husband was scarfing it down.  By the third time I made the Roasted Pineapple Pork Tenderloin , I was…

  • Harissa Lentil & Butternut Squash Soup

    Today is my first post for a new section I like to call “Grocery Store Finds.”  This is a concept I have been thinking about for quite some time.  I will not be posting to this section weekly, but likely every other week, depending on the ingredients I find and how they inspire me. I know many of you view grocery store shopping with some distain.  I get it!  It’s another errand you have to run between everything else you have to do.  With the people, long lines, and huge assortment of choices these days, I understand keeping it routine.  This leaves you running in and out, going to the…

  • Mini Chocolate Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Banana Frosting

    Aka: Abomination Cakes.  Or that’s what my husband calls them.  He doesn’t believe in the cupcake.  He says he wants a full cake and anything short of that is an abomination.  Well wouldn’t it be nice to be able to control yourself with a full cake?  Here’s me with a full cake: Thinking to myself, “I will have just one bite.” I take the bite, now the edge is uneven.  “I will just scrape a little more, you know, to even the edge.” Bite taken.  “Oh no!  There’s even larger dent!”  I think you know where this is going.  Five minutes later, the cake is half gone and I swear…

  • Baked Zucchini Steak Fries with Sweet & Spicy Yogurt Dip

    My husband is a big Steelers fan and I am a huge Packers fan. On Sundays, between September and the first week of February, we don our jerseys and hunker down to watch the great American gridiron past time. We start watching pregame at about 12 and then at least one game is on for the rest of the day. We get pretty into it. There is a lot of screaming, trash talking, sitting on the edge of the couch, spontaneous jumping and other stress induced behavior. It’s no wonder that I tend to want to anxiously overeat. Because of this, I have learned to create various low calorie but…
