This is so easy, it’s crazy not to make a batch every week and snack on them around happy hour time, or in the afternoon when you get a little peckish. Just look at that glaze! So crunchy and salty and perfect! You can mix up the seasonings, but make sure cinnamon is involved! So so so good… I’ve made these with pepitas (shelled pumpkin … Continue reading sweet and savory nut mix.

Hello friends! I’ve been working feverishly in my little 50×50 workshop, attempting to get this year started off on the right foot (which is always the left foot, as far as I’m concerned). It’s a slow process, but I also think I’ve been more productive these past few months than I have ever been in my entire life. Sure, there are some things on the … Continue reading 50×50 update.
These are my absolute favorite keto crackers. Actually, they’re my favorite crackers all around. Keto or otherwise. I found this recipe on alldayidreamaboutfood.com, a fantastic blog with the most amazing low-carb recipes. But as usual, I tweaked it to make it more flexible with what cheese I have laying around. I also doubled it. I used a scale to measure. Do you have a scale … Continue reading fave keto crackers.

Okay, so it’s Day 1 of my 50 till 50 challenge, and I already have a slight change to make on the list. I didn’t like “go see family more often” waaaaay down at #50. I mean, there’s no order to this list whatsoever, and it’s built into me anyway to want to see family as much as possible, but I still just don’t like … Continue reading Slight change…
Hi Everyone! My 49th birthday is October 9th, and I have a dream of using these next 52 weeks until I turn 50 to take this living thing to the NEXT LEVEL. Want to join me on the ride? As you might expect from this girl who constantly craves balance, it will be both insightful and shallow, fun and serious, wise but mostly dumb, healthy … Continue reading 50 till 50.
If you know me well, you know that I model many of my lifestyle choices after two women: Ina Garten and Giada De Laurentiis. I love Giada’s relaxed-but-sexy Italifornia style (I just made that word up) but I really resonate with the practical uniform Ina wears. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. And their cooking styles follow suit: Ina taught me how to perfect … Continue reading shakerato.
Folks, this bread is it. I officially don’t miss bread. And on top of that, I now don’t have to deal with tummy aches, brought on by lovely sandwiches. Like I said ~ this is it. I started with a few recipes online, and combined them a bit to make my favorite version. I also hear that you can simply make keto bread with cheese … Continue reading favorite keto chaffle bread.
I feel like I never quite get roasted chicken right. Until tonight. Oh baby, did I get it right this time ~ so I gotta write it down before I forget! The leftovers will be turned into a yummy chicken and mushroom soup for the freezer. This is serious progress after what feels like a very long draught of unhealthy, non-homemade, hurried, unintentional stuffing of … Continue reading Roasted Chicken and Veggies.
