TND – Movin’ to the country, gonna eat a lot of peaches

I am feeling press ganged by Fall. First it was the early appearance of pumpkin spice flavored specialty items. It used to be you had to wait until September or October to get your hands on something apple caramel flavored, or spiced with pumpkin pie. This year they started appearing in July. Then on the last Sunday in August, I walked into the grocery store and was confronted with serried ranks of Halloween candy on display a precise 60 days [...]

Low Carb Cinnamon Apple Pancakes

[unable to retrieve full-text content] Low Carb Cinnamon Apple Pancakes pack in so much delicious apple and cinnamon flavor and are surprisingly low in carbs, paleo friendly, and gluten free. In my opinion, the combination of cinnamon and apples makes the very best addition to pancakes. I am getting hungry just thinking about it, especially since we are in the prime of apple season. As kids we would go apple picking every year and come home with mountains of apples that [...]

Sugar Free January Product Guide

The thing about caramelized brussels sprouts is that they are a) adorable, b) delicious, and c) healthy, because they’re like baby cabbages disguised as beautiful food. On our Washington, D.C. weekend getaway, I found various forms of brussels sprouts on every restaurant menu. Caramelized, roasted, chopped, sauteed, braised, you name it. And obvi, I ordered all of them. But there was only one that really made my heart flutter, and that was the caramelized brussels sprouts. How can a [...]

Sugar Free January Meal Planning Guide

This is my perfect food. But I have to admit, things didn’t start out so well. In fact, there were a few tears and a lot of vaccuuming after attempt number one: Good bye, new Pyrex baking dish. My self confidence plummeted after these horrendous results. But luckily I have strong determination when it comes to making food with peanut butter, chocolate, and candy. And so I tried again.

TND – Slàinte mhòr!

For reasons that escape me, and baffle everyone – myself included – I managed to pass out of teen-hood without having ever read a Diana Gabaldon novel.  This is shocking and bewildering because the Outlander series is exactly the kind of epic historical sprawl that I devoured in high school.  My best guess as to how this situation came to pass is that I read the cover flap, decided that they were all about the Highland Uprising of 1745, [...]

Today we are giving a big huge virtual hug to my favorite whole wheat pasta makers at DeLallo for sponsoring this post. Pasta, pasta, and more pasta! Once upon a time, I had this idea to make an Alfredo sauce out of cauliflower. Remember that? Throwbaaack. I loved it, you loved it, we all loved it together. It was 2012 and life was good. In the years since that recipe came to life, it’s been so nice to have a healthier alternative to traditional cream-and-butter [...]

Sugar Free January Q&A

Making lemonade in a blender has truly revolutionized my summer. Eh, I’m not much of a lemonade drinker, said the old me. But the concept of making lemonade, fresh, fast, sweet and almost creamy-like (thank you sweetened condensed milk) has made me into something of a new summer person. This blender lemonade takes, oh, let me see, three seconds? And requires four ingredients: lemons, sugar, water, and sweetened condensed milk. And it’s definitely tart and refreshing, but is still [...]
