It’s So Fluffy, I’m Gonna Die!

Want to make your head explode? I have come up with a recipe for cheesecake that is both dense AND fluffy at once. /Pause for gasp/ That’s right, folks!… Okay, but in all seriousness, I think I figured it out! One of the main characteristics of a traditional New York style cheesecake is that it…

Let’s Buck(eye) The Norm!

Buckeyes. I’m not sure if they’re a North Eastern United States thing, if they’re made elsewhere but under a different name, or if everyone knows what they are. I’ll assume that SOMEONE out there doesn’t know what exactly I’m talking about, so I’ll explain. Buckeyes or Buckeye Balls are a truffle like version of a…

Pe-can you give me a slice of your time?

Low Carb Pecan Pie. The (in my opinion) ULTIMATE Christmas recipe to be tackled! I LOVE pecan pie, but I haven’t had it in years due to the fact that it’s sugar, sugar and more sugar. However, I had a request to come up with a good low carb recipe for one this year, so…

Low Carb PB Cup, I eat you up. Let’s have a Party!

While making various baked goods the other day I was thinking of ways to incorporate some of my new favorite bariatric products into recipes. One of my favorite products that was new in 2019 is ZenEvo Protein Cups. I already included their Cookies and Cream cups in the White Hot Chocolate recipe I recently posted,…

Party (Mix) on, Wayne!

For many of us, this time of year not only includes a lot of sweets and baked goods, but an old familiar friend of a snack: Chex Party Mix™. If you’re on a low carb diet of any kind, this snack is, unfortunately, anything but a friend. While you may think that making something consisting…

It’s White Hot (chocolate, that is)…

So it’s that time of year when we all want the warm foods. Whether you live in a place that gets lots of snow or a place that rarely sees temperatures below 60°F, it just seems to be a universal thing (okay, I can’t really speak for people in the southern hemisphere). Having weight loss…

(Low carb) Stuffing your face…

The holidays are pretty much upon us. And with the holidays come the foods. ALL of the foods. Because of this, these months can be very hard on a lot of us as bariatric patients. There are many ways to make this time as enjoyable as possible (including the tips and tricks listed in my…

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,…
