Official Royal Anzac Biscuit Recipe

I knew ANZAC (Australian New Zealand Army Corps) Day was coming up and since I’ve never had Anzac Biscuits, I couldn’t resist giving THE royal recipe a go. If this ANZAC Biscuit version was good enough for Queen Elizabeth, Princess Diana, Prince William & Harry then they are certainly good enough for me. People Magazine ran […]

Low Carb Almond Cookies

Recently, I tripped across this gorgeous food photo over at Food Foto Gallery and was quite enamored with the simplicity of the recipe that could easily be made low carb. Almond Cookies for Passover are probably not officially Passover approved with my modification of the low carb sugar substitute; however, one could easily just use […]

Whole Wheat Roasted Banana Bread

Happy National Banana Bread Day! As much as I love banana bread, I really don’t make it that often. Bananas are high in carbs and it’s a pretty ubiquitous snack that can be found on almost any street corner. However, I tripped across this recipe with whole roasted bananas and I just had to give […]

Bittersweet Chocolate Blondies with Walnuts (Lower Carb)

Today is National Bittersweet Chocolate Day & January 22 is National Blonde Brownie Day so I thought I would have a little fun and combine the two. Now that the holidays are over, it’s back to counting carbs and tweaking recipes until the cows come home. I wouldn’t necessarily call this a low carb blondie […]

Cranberry Coconut Jumbles (made two ways)

I saw this recipe on The Salt and I was immediately intrigued. Cranberry & coconut together? Sounded awful but I couldn’t get them out of my mind. I just had to make them so that I could see just how bad they would be (weird, I know). The flavor combo was so odd sounding to me […]

Monday Muster and Oatmeal Cookies

Monday Muster’s are short, sweet and to the point. If you’ve never seen my Monday Muster feature, it’s just like a typical roundup post. In fact, every dictionary and thesaurus has a different word choice for muster but they all are in the same range as assemble, gather, collect, come together, round up, etc. Hence, […]

Lighter Carrot Cake

With Easter just around the corner, my mind automatically jumps to spring, re-birth, new beginnings, pastels, chocolate & carrot cake. In our house, carrot cake is a favorite and apparently not something to be messed around with. Let me explain … Hubby and I really enjoy carrot cake but I’ve only made it a few […]

Vanilla Snack Cake

I prefer baking over cooking, any day of the week, so I’m always on the lookout for fun, fast treats that aren’t too unhealthy. I already have a Simple, Lower Carb Chocolate Cake and a Simple, Lower Carb Yellow Cake but a plain white cake has eluded me for months. I have tried low carb […]

Blarney Stone Cookies

With St. Patrick’s Day just around the corner, I’ve got green & Irish on the brain. Okay, okay … green is my favorite color so it’s on my brain all year round but Irish is in full swing for me, right now. I just love how significant holidays and cultural events are to our food […]

Orange Applesauce Date Nut Cake

Today, I wanted to share another vegan dessert that I recently tried and loved. This cake is so moist and sweet that the hubs even liked it, too. In fact, I didn’t even tell him that this could be good for him because it might have tainted his opinion. Honestly, I don’t know if I […]

Whole Wheat Pecan Shortbread

I love shortbread. All the rich, buttery, crumbly goodness that just melts in your mouth. I could eat it all year round but really try to imbibe only around the holidays because of the high fat content and carb count. This recipe uses a lower carb sugar substitute and whole wheat flour so I may feel a […]

Sour Cream Coffee Cake (similar to Zingerman’s)

Have you every heard of (or had) a Zingerman’s Sourcream Coffeecake?

Oatmeal Raisin Pecan Cookies

Simple, Lower Carb Yellow Cake

Oh, the joys of simplicity. Sometimes, all I want is a simple, classic recipe that works. For me, that can be quite the challenge with my nutritional requirements; however, I can be quite the persistent one. After the success of my Life Changing Low Carb Brownies and my Simple, Lower Carb Chocolate Cake, my spirit was renewed and I have […]

Fall Cookies

Pumpkin cookies are the name of the original recipe; however, I’ve named these orange-ish treats Fall Cookies. What I should have named these are the “cookies that almost weren’t”. So many times, I get something in my head and I just can’t let go until I move forward and try the item. That’s what happened […]
