Banana Waffles (Low Carb & Gluten Free)

Banana Waffles

To my surprise today is national Pancake Day.  I didn’t even know they had a day devoted to pancakes.  I expect a day to be devoted to chocolate, peanut butter, stuff like that but not pancakes.  I joined Foodbuzz two months ago and I see bloggers post recipes for these “food theme” days but it’s…

Deconstructed Omelette

I woke-up yesterday like normal; sleepy, grumpy, and tired of living in a construction zone.  The hardwood floors are being redone, which means they were stripped of the old varnish/stain (LOTS of dust), and now we are in the stages of staining some sections and applying varnish to other sections.  The beach house smells so…

Aspartame Free & Loving It!

I’ve been aspartame free for almost a month!  I think everyone knows by now that aspartame is not good for you.  Yet it’s in everything: pop, toothpaste, gum…  I don’t drink pop.  I’ve never been a pop drinker.  I really hate the fizzy drink taste.  I’m a water/wine girl.  Switching to a different pop was…

Super Easy Peanut Butter Cookies (Low Carb & Gluten Free)

  ***I no longer use xylitol or Splenda. Please keep in mind xylitol is poisonous to dogs. I would suggest you use a natural sweetener like raw honey. Peanut butter.  I feel like that is all I have to say.  Peanut butter sums it up.  I love peanut butter.  Peanut butter loves me:D  We are…

Twice Baked Sour Cream & Chives Faux Potatoes (Low Carb)

Ohhhh cauliflower…  I think of cauliflower as the tofu of the low carb world.  This little vegetable takes on so many flavours of other foods.  It becomes fried rice, pizza dough, breadsticks, and finally potatoes.  I remember once watching a documentary about a community in British Columbia going on a low carb diet.  The owner…

How to Cut Carbs in Jam by 50%

Chia seeds can be used to reduce anything.  They can be used to reduce fat in a recipe, replace eggs, reduce calories, reduce carbs, and add omega 3 fatty acids.   You probably thought they were just for chia pets!  For this experiment I used chia seeds to reduce the carbs in my jam.  Jam is…

Paleo Almond Flour Pizza

Almond Flour Pizza

Pizza is a staple in my life.  When I posted about Paleo pizza I mentioned I liked two pizza videos.  Here is the second video.  This pizza recipe uses almond flour.  It is derived from a recipe by Mark’s Daily Apple.  The author of the video, Darren McDuffie, shows you step by step how to…

How to Make Whipped Cream with Coconut Milk

This recipe is great for anyone who is trying to consume less dairy or has a dairy allergy.  I often replace coconut milk for heavy cream in my own recipes.  Coconut milk has so many uses.  I have shown before that it can be used to make caramel sauce (my current obsession:D).  You can make…

“Apple” Cinnamon Low Carb Pancakes

***I no longer use xylitol or Splenda. Please keep in mind xylitol is poisonous to dogs. I would suggest you use a natural sweetener like raw honey. I guess I really like breakfast:D  I noticed I have a lot of breakfast posts.  I still have half of a jicama in my fridge from when I…

Ooey Gooey Low Carb Brownie

***I no longer use xylitol or Splenda. Please keep in mind xylitol is poisonous to dogs. I would suggest you use a natural sweetener like raw honey. I’m sharing with you my favourite dessert recipe.  It’s not fancy, although the caramel sauce does add a bit of sophistication.  It’s not complicated.  I make it a…

Paleo Pizza

  Paleo pizza!!!  Cavemen ate pizza?  Today’s caveman or cavewoman sure does!!!   What would life be without pizza?  It is as important as the invention of the wheel and fire.  Cavemen probably invented fire just to cook pizza!!!  I can imagine them foraging for the peppers, hunting for the meat, grunt grunt grunt, squishing…
