I’ve been stewing over this…

It’s officially “that time of year” again. Time for fuzzy sweaters, thick socks and even thicker stews! Anyone who knows me knows that this is my most favorite-est time of the year. The sights, the smells, the traditions, and of course the foods. But you don’t come here to read my musings on the best…

Do we have time for a quickie?

  With these posts, I usually like to write some back story, or how/why I came up with the recipe. You know, some sort of fun beyond just the recipe itself. The only downside to that is (most times) only being able to post one recipe at a time. Between recipe conception, testing, nutrition research,…

Use your Egg-Noggin with this one…

While I intended the Triamisu brownies to be the last recipe post before Christmas, I had a request for my Low Carb Eggnog recipe. Who am I to deny such a simple request? Traditionally, eggnog is extremely sugary and thick, so obviously very outside of the boundaries of what we should have as low carbers/bariatric…

I Tiramis-You…

Okay guys, I’m super excited about this recipe. This is a bit of a departure from the rest of the Holiday Survival dessert recipes. Instead of cookies or candies, tonight I have Tiramisu Brownies for you! This recipe combines a low carb, fudgey brownie recipe with a ricotta custard topping. I will admit that the…

Dat Cookie, Dough….

Get it?… Cookie though? Cookie dough?….  Note to self: puns aren’t funny if you have to explain them. Now where’s the window so I can throw this rule out of it and continue in my ways? Moving on… Peanut butter cookies. These babies right here are why I feel so bad for people with peanut…

This Will Definitely Make You Toss Your Cookies…

Doesn’t that just scream “read me!”? When it comes to writing, there are two things I just completely blank on: naming/titling things and conclusions. When it comes time to work on either of those, it’s like someone switched my brain to television static. But that tid bit aside, here’s the second post of Christmas Cookies…

Let’s Get The Meatball Rolling…

This post is a little off course for most people when it comes to Christmas foods, but at the same time I know a lot of people have a tradition of eating Italian food at their Christmas celebrations. Whether you have Italian heritage or it’s just a tradition started somewhere down the line in the…

Christmas Cookies, Christmas Cookies…

Both of these are and can easily be made high protein with the addition of your favorite protein powder. I will include recipes for cookies with and without added protein so you can decide which you’d like to try! While there are lots of low carb cookie recipes, I have only ended up trying a…

Speaking of Feeling Like Fudge…

What do you do about exercising when you “don’t feel up to it”? No matter where you are in your weight loss journey, we all struggle with lack of motivation to exercise when we don’t feel well. Struggling with fitness is something that spans all types of people. We live in a time when lean…
