Luscious Lemon Bundt

Finally! A bundt that is photo worthy. If you read my black and white bundt-disaster, you know what I’m talking about. This is the good, the bad and the delicious so, I shared the bad. I’d worked hard at creating this black and white bundt that came in a recent issue of King Arthur Flour and…

Homemade Salted Caramel Sauce

Recently, I feel like I’ve seen caramel cropping up more often than it used to. I see more caramel in ice cream and on dessert menus. I even see it more in the candy bars in the checkout line at the grocery store. Maybe it’s not more prevalent than it used to be. Maybe it’s…

Low-Carb Chicken and “Rice”

This past week has been a whirl-wind. The babes turned one and we threw a huge party. Complete with cake, cupcakes, cookies, macarons (post coming soon), candy, etc. Everything binge-able. 😀 So, with all that food (of course the sampling that comes with making all that stuff) my low-carb lifestyle was pretty up-rooted. This week,…

Black and White Bundt-disaster

A couple of weeks ago, maybe more like a month at this point, I received my King Arthur Flour catalogue in the mail. In this issue was a recipe for a black and white pound cake. It looked delicious and, I had recently dug my fancy bundt cake pan out of storage. I say storage…

Simple Guacamole

Cinco De Mayo is quickly approaching and what better appetizer (or meal 😉 ) than chips and guacamole! Who doesn’t love guacamole? Well, some people don’t. My Mom isn’t a huge fan but my sister and I love it. I had my 1st real, real good guacamole during a bachelorette weekend. It was a fun…

Brownie Pudding

Say what???? Brownie Pudding??? Yes, it’s a thing and it’s delicious. This recipe came to me a while ago; I think I may have even been watching Ina Garten on Food Network and she made this. Remembering how I discovered this isn’t important… the important thing is that the recipe was discovered and executed and…

5 wines for Friday

I’m not sure about drinking naked but it might not be a bad idea….hahaha. This picture was in a wine store in Virginia when we went to visit some friends…I couldn’t help but post it for this week’s 5… wines!!! In most people’s world, Friday is the end…. the end to a hard work week…

Low Carb Broccoli Salad

I love summer….everything about summer. I love the heat, the sunshine, the smell of fresh cut grass. I love cookouts and picnics too. During the summer, my In-Laws usually have a fire outside and we cookout for Sunday dinner… at least when it’s not raining. I really like having a hotdog cooked over an open…

A Trying Tuesday

It’s Tuesday and It’s already one of “those” days. I just feel like I can’t seem to catch up. I usually feel like I’m playing catch up… hurry here, hurry there, hurry up and do this or that, just to get it done. On these kinds of days I realize, I need to slow down…
